Enterprise Hosting vs. Shared Hosting

Enterprise Hosting vs. Shared Hosting

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.
