If you are planning to get a website, the very first thing that comes to your mind after you have registered your domain, is the web hosting. When we talk about web hosting, there are countless options available to choose from.
The type of web-hosting you choose for your business entirely depends upon the need for which the website is being designed. For instance, if you are creating a personal blog just to maintain a daily dairy, then any shared web hosting will do for your website. However, if you are designing an e-commerce portal, then you will need to have a dedicated web hosting server for your website. Having said that, I am sure you are curious to know more about shared and dedicated web hosting servers.
For a serious business website, a shared web hosting is not a good idea. In case of a shared hosting, your data pipeline will be shared with other users. So, if for some reason, the pipeline is clogged by a website, it may leave your site non-responsive and in some serious cases, even the loss of complete website and in turn business.
Due to the reasons mentioned above, more and more people are opting for dedicated web hosting. Although, it is little expensive as compare to shared hosting, it provides better safety features, avoid loss of data, and help earning reputation for your business. Moreover it offers extremely important confidentiality of business data and customer’s information. So, if by spending few extra pennies, you are getting all this along with better safety, reliability, and more memory and maintenance, it is worth all the money.
