Website Hosting Types

While there are many custom hosting scenarios, typically there are three click-and-pay hosting scenarios presented on the web:

  • Typical Shared Hosting
  • Virtual Private Server
  • Dedicated Server

Each of theses options usually has several different account types that incorporate different feature sets. SbOGB.com will install your website using any hosting scenario you chose. Based on your unique website design and size SbOGB.com will recommend a scenario to help you meet your business goals. Most hosting providers will allow you make changes to your hosting or cancel anytime. This flexibility provides you the option to upgrade or change your website hosting any month.

Shared Hosting

SbOGB.com Recommended Use: Simple, Slow Changing Sites

Shared Hosting is usually priced from $1.99 – $19.99 a month and affords low cost in exchange for sharing your hosting environment with 100’s or 1000’s of other websites. Many of these types of accounts do a decent job of serving simple static web pages. Even the most recommended hosting providers of Shared Hosting accounts typically may see delays of 30 seconds to 2 minutes serving up dynamic web pages from popular Content Management Systems like WordPress or eCommerce solutions. Studies have shown a visitors quickly leave a slow website, so make sure your content is showing fast the majority of the time if you choose this type of service.

This large swing in response time is usually of factor of how many resources are being used up by your neighbors on the system. It may only take one of the neighbor websites doing bad practices of spamming email or getting hacked or high demand processing to slow the web experience down for 100’s or 1000’s of customers.

Management of a Shared Hosting account is made easier by a user friendly control panel and help pages. It will still take you some time to read up and figure out what you want to do, but when you’re ready most users can figure out how to do most basic task. SbOGB.com recommends calling us when you get need a little help for an as-needed service or having a maintenance plan that includes managing your hosting and posting updates, like SbOGB.com Content Maintenance Plans.

Virtual Private Server

SbOGB.com Recommended Use: Small Business, Fast Sites

Virtual Private Server (VPS) Hosting is usually priced from $29.99 – $119.99 a month and provides reserved server resources for your website. The servers are still shared among other customers but you are guaranteed to receive access to resources for serving your website. This type of service can be very fast usually serving up dynamic content in less than 2 seconds. While the cost is higher you can normally be assured your web visitors will see your website. Other neighboring websites still exist on the server but are more isolated from your resources by the Virtual Server. The primary risk of impact is at the server running into some difficulty sharing the real resources among all of the virtual servers. This risk may present itself in terms of downtime, but the majority of the time you will have a very nice and fast web visiting experience.

Management of a VPS account is significantly more complex than managing a Shared Hosting account, SbOGB.com recommends using a managed VPS service like SbOGB.com Shared VPS Hosting to have a professional run the system on your behalf. SbOGB.com Content Maintenance Plans allow for updates on your behalf and include the SbOGB.com Shared VPS Hosting.

Variations of this service offer multiple CPUs, more Storage Space, or more Bandwidth.

Dedicated Server

SbOGB.com Recommended Use: Small to Large Businesses, High Traffic Sites

Dedicated Server Hosting is priced from $149.99 to $249.99 a month and allows you to secure a complete physical server for you web hosting requirements. Given you have leased the entire “box” your website will not have to compete with any other neighboring website for any server resources. This option is usually recommended only after the website generates enough load and traffic to exceed the needs of a VPS hosting account.

Management of a Dedicated Hosting account is similar in complexity to a VPS account and again much more complex than managing a Shared Hosting account, SbOGB.com recommends having a maintenance plan that includes managing your hosting, like SbOGB.com Content Maintenance Plans, when you’re ready for a Dedicated Server.

Variations of this service offer multiple Systems, multiple CPUs, more Storage Space, or more Bandwidth.

Analogy: Like living in a townhouse or house.
