The Top 10 Web Hosting Providers 2017

June 5, 2017 5:19 pm Published by

Do you own a business? Want to start a blog? Have a great idea for a website that’ll make you rich? You’ll need a home on the web where your website can live, and those homes are ‘rented’ from web hosting services. The choice of companies offering web hosting is quite literally endless, so if you’re new to the game it can be overwhelming. Every company offers various packages at various prices and levels of functionality, but broadly speaking there are three types to choose from:

  • Shared Hosting: Your provider hosts multiple websites on a single server. The advantage? It’s cheap as chips. The disadvantage? All those websites share the server’s resources, so if one site sees a huge spike in traffic, the other sites suffer.
  • VPS Hosting (Virtual Private Server): The same as shared hosting, except that each website on the host server has their own dedicated resources. The advantages are self-explanatory. The disadvantage? The price tag is usually twice as high.
  • Dedicated Hosting: Your website is the only one in the village – the village being the server. You have all of its power and resources at your disposal. Best for big websites and big budgets. You may also have to handle backend, technical issues yourself.
