    Picking up a reliable hosting partner is vital. Some of the many factors you must consider are security measures, hosting options, robust performance, downtime if any to decide the best web hosting company for your business.


    Shared Web Hosting


    This is a low-price and low-scale hosting option. Small businesses and start-ups are thinking of shared hosting when they think of web hosting. The server resources like CPU (processor), RAM etc. are shared between the various websites hosted. Small websites that do not have huge traffic and don’t require powerful performance can benefit from shared hosting. The downside of shared hosting is that if one website is hacked, then it eats up all the server resources which are shared, and then the other websites on that server suffer due to lack of available resources.


    VPS Web Hosting


    Medium-to-large size businesses need superior performance, increased flexibility and enhanced security. Hence, they go for VPS hosting which gives them full control of a dedicated server space allocated within the larger server. It can be thought of as small chunks of server space separately allocated to the customers on the server.


    Dedicated Web Hosting


    Websites with huge traffic need dedicated servers to run them without compromising on their speed and performance. It’s suitable for businesses that need full control over their hosting server. It offers benefits like full access, greater bandwidth, superior infrastructure, enhanced security and lower latency.


    Linux Web Hosting


    Linux is a unix-based, open-source OS platform that is predominantly used for website hosting. It is an ideal solution for website hosting for open-source technologies like PHP/Perl/Python, Apache/MySQL. Linux is unique as it provides ssh or Telnet access which helps in interpreting the transmission data over TCP(Transmission Control Protocol). It can be easily integrated with a lot of open-source applications making it a flexible hosting platform for website development.


    Windows Web Hosting


    Windows hosting is suitable for websites developed using ASP/ASP.NET or MS SQL/Access. While the most preferred choice is Linux hosting except when there are Microsoft specific applications, when developers go for windows hosting. Consider the tools and scripting language you’re using to decide the hosting platform.
