If you are planning to build your own website, you must learn about the different types of web hosting. It is very important to understand the pros and cons of different types of web hosting and then choose the right web hosting package, depending on your individual business needs and requirements.

The first and the most common type of web hosting is shared web hosting. In case of shared web hosting, several websites are made to share a single server. You would be given your own domain name but the disk space and bandwidth would be limited. Since you would be sharing the server space with other users of the web host, you may face security and privacy issues. If you are planning to do ecommerce, shared web hosting may not be a safe and reliable option for you.

Then another common type of web hosting is dedicated web hosting. You get a dedicated server to host your own website. Dedicated web hosting gives you unlimited bandwidth and disk space. It is the ideal web hosting option for businesses that want to add quality content and graphics to their site for enjoying increased traffic. In addition, you can enjoy complete control and authority over your website by choosing this particular hosting plan.

Virtual Private Hosting is yet another type of web hosting that is gaining a lot of popularity these days. This type of hosting combines the features, properties, and price of both the shared and dedicated hosting. It is the perfect merger of low priced shared hosting server and dependable and efficient dedicated server. For small and mid sized businesses who want to enjoy superior web hosting but cant afford to pay much, Unmetered and Dedicated Virtual Private Server hosting is the best solution.

Then there is another type of web hosting known as managed dedicated server hosting. In this type of web hosting, the service provider takes complete responsibility of server management and infrastructure whereas the tenant or the business using managed server hosting is free to manage content and applications, and run their website. Managed server hosting promises better and superior security, high performance, better reliability, easy management, and cost effective web hosting solution. It is ideal for businesses that do not want to waste their time and resources in managing the server, yet want to enjoy the best web hosting services.

Now that you know about various types of web hosting, make the right choice as your online success to a large extent would depend on the type of web hosting that you choose.
