FAQ

Given that websites need to exist in the digital realm, the host essentially refers to the server where the website is stored. The hosting provider is the company from which you lease the storage space.

For the creation of a new website, especially for non-eCommerce purposes, the requirements are not extensive.

Typically, a website occupies less than a gigabyte of disk space, even when all pages are included.

Regarding processing power, it’s advisable to scale up as your site expands. However, for sites with fewer than a few hundred daily page views, a few CPU cores are sufficient to prevent visitor slowdowns.

For the majority of websites, it generally doesn’t. However, having more databases allows for the storage of information for multiple websites, catalogs, clients, and customers. Moreover, a copy of your website’s live database can be utilized for tweaking and experimentation.

Shared Hosting allocates space on a server for your website along with several others. Occasionally, high traffic across multiple websites can lead to slowdowns because they share the same processing power.

VPS (Virtual Private Server) resembles Shared Hosting, where multiple websites share a server. However, each website receives a designated amount of storage space and processing power that is not accessible to other websites. It’s akin to having a fence around your resources, preventing interference from neighbors.

A Dedicated Server is an entire server exclusively dedicated to one website or a collective set of an entity’s websites. Typically, these are used for high-traffic websites that cannot tolerate slowdowns.

It’s straightforward! Adjust your plan to align with your website’s requirements. Eventually, you might consider transitioning to VPS Hosting.

Guide for Selecting Web Hosting Services.

Affordable and widely favored, shared hosting stands out as the most economical method to host a website. Within this buyer’s guide to web hosting, you will gain insights into the specifics of shared hosting, explore alternative hosting options, and discover how to select a plan that suits your needs.

Understanding Shared Hosting

Opting for Shared Hosting represents the most cost-effective approach to hosting your website.

The term “Shared” is indicative of the arrangement where you divide server space with other websites, distributing the overall storage, RAM, and bandwidth among all parties involved. Importantly, you also divide the associated costs.

Imagine it as a scenario where you have roommates assisting with the rent for the space where your website resides. In essence, it stands as the most economical method to establish and maintain your website.

However, it’s crucial to note that shared hosting is just one of the hosting alternatives available for your website(s).

Alternatives to Shared Hosting

Virtual Private Servers (VPS)

VPS or Virtual Private Servers allocate you a designated space within a server, ensuring no interference from other websites. This guarantees that your website won’t experience slowdowns due to the size of another site. Additionally, VPSs utilize Command Lines for server management, offering enhanced customization options for improved performance.

However, VPSs are inherently more costly, and the preference for Command Lines over cPanel demands a deeper understanding for operation. (Nevertheless, hosting providers like CCD provide Managed Services to oversee your server, address bugs, and implement security patches on your behalf.)

Dedicated Server

A dedicated server exclusively reserved for your requirements provides more extensive storage, RAM, and bandwidth compared to any other service. You have the flexibility to use it as you see fit, even accommodating multiple websites on one server.

Given that you’re renting space on an entire server, these packages come at a higher cost.

The Bottom Line: When to Opt for Shared Hosting

If you’re in the process of creating a new website or your current site doesn’t experience substantial traffic, a Shared Hosting plan is likely the most suitable (and economical) choice. Additionally, you have the flexibility to upgrade to new plans as your website expands!

Once you’ve determined that shared hosting aligns with your needs, the next step is to select the package that best fits your requirements.

Choosing the Ideal Shared Hosting Plan for Your Needs

With numerous options available, selecting the right plan for your requirements may seem a bit daunting. Here are several key factors to consider when making your decision.

Operating System: Windows vs. Linux

The choice of the operating system (OS) plays a crucial role in adjusting your website’s hosting settings without the need for manual code alterations. It also dictates the control panels available, though workarounds exist for determined users. The two primary OS options are Linux and Windows. Linux, being open source, is more popular due to its reliability, security, and cPanel support, allowing for greater customization. On the other hand, Windows is preferable for those using ASP.NET web applications.

Control Panels

Control panels facilitate the configuration of DNS settings, management of email accounts and databases, and execution of FTP (File Transfer Protocol). Alternatively, users can access the command line, requiring technical expertise. cPanel stands out as the most widely used control panel, known for its straightforward customization and feature visibility. It loads faster than Plesk and is exclusive to Linux operating systems. Plesk, available for both Windows and Linux OSs, is slightly more streamlined, grouping tools and features intuitively.

Security

Web security is crucial to prevent potential attacks on your site. Users can either install their own security measures with technical knowledge or opt for a security plan to oversee these aspects.
  • Essential: Offers protection against hackers and malware through automatic daily scans and cleanup software.
  • Deluxe: Recommended for advanced security, incorporating Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) to block malware and prevent DDoS attacks. Additionally, it boosts page load times by up to 70% with a Content Delivery Network (CDN).

Number of Websites

Consider the number of websites you intend to host. For a single website, Starter and Economy plans are suitable, while Deluxe and Ultimate plans offer options for unlimited websites.

Storage and Bandwidth

While storage and bandwidth may seem complex, a general rule is that for the majority of websites, the Starter plan provides more than sufficient storage and bandwidth. Upgrading to Economy, Deluxe, or Ultimate plans can be considered if additional resources are needed.

eCommerce and Databases

If setting up an eCommerce website, the need for MySQL databases becomes crucial. The number of databases required depends on factors like owning multiple websites, using databases for client information, or testing new software.
  • Starter: Lacks a MySQL database.
  • Economy, Deluxe, Ultimate: Offer 10, 25, and unlimited databases, respectively.

Email

Consider email services based on your requirements. Shared Hosting plans may lack resources for extra email addresses, making Business Hosting plans, combining shared plan simplicity with dedicated resources and additional email options, a suitable alternative.

Processing Power & Memory

For websites with lower to moderate daily page views, the provided processing power and memory in the Starter plan are generally sufficient. Higher-tier plans and alternatives like VPS or Dedicated Servers are recommended for more significant websites with heavier needs.

The Bottom Line

  • Starter Plan: Ideal for basic, non-eCommerce websites with low to moderate daily page views.
  • Economy Plan: Suitable for a single eCommerce site with low traffic or a non-eCommerce site with several hundred daily page views.
  • Deluxe Plan: Appropriate for hosting multiple websites.
  • Ultimate Plan: Recommended for multiple high-traffic websites.
For larger websites with greater demands, exploring VPS and Dedicated Server options is advisable.
