There are many different levels of web hosting, and pricing can fluctuate greatly. Some very common questions we receive sound something like this: Why do prices vary so much with hosting providers? What is the benefit of switching to enterprise hosting, rather than keeping my current, low-cost hosting provider? What return will I see if I invest in enterprise hosting for my business?
This service is suited for small, static websites that do not require any functionality so to speak (i.e. photo galleries, e-commerce, permission-based logins, downloadable forms, embedded links, social feeds, widgets, etc.)
In order for shared hosting rates to remain at a very low price, the hosting provider puts hundreds to thousands of websites and emails on the same server. This can put a burden on the server's capability and may add additional vulnerabilities to the server (i.e. lack of security patches, SPAM, or even fraud). These factors can lead to a potential hard-to-manage environment. If something goes wrong with servers housing very large amounts of websites, it can take days to restore sites if they go down for a number of reasons. Poor web traffic results and slower customer service are also major factors to consider when choosing a shared hosting environment.
If your primary goal is to host your website as budget-friendly as possible, then self-service, shared hosting may be the solution for your website. However, please keep in mind the factors mentioned above when considering your time and investment on a website.
