Hosting and Maintenance

Hosting Overview

There are a wide variety of hosting and maintenance options available to you.

Shared Hosting is a low-cost option to host your web site or application. Your web site’s pages and images are stored on a shared-use server, one where dozens or even hundreds of other customers also host their web sites. The web server directs incoming visitors to the appropriate customer site based on the domain name. Having many web sites on a single server greatly spreads the hardware costs out among the various customers. Shared server hosting plans are very reasonably priced and are an excellent way to set up and begin growing your web presence.

Virtual Hosting, also known as VPS or “Virtual Private Server” Hosting and maintenance, offers a nice compromise between Shared and Dedicated Hosting. Like Shared Hosting, your web site resides on a server with other customers. The main difference is that a percentage of the server’s resources such as CPU, memory, and hard drive are explicitly reserved for your web sites. In addition, your files are hosted on a completely separate, or “virtual” partition, one equipped with it’s own operating system instance. This separation also isolates the customers from one another and prevents any single customer from over-taxing the server.

Dedicated Hosting is exactly what is sounds like. A separate, dedicated server is set up and maintained specifically for your company’s web sites and applications. There are no other customers on your server, and the hardware specifications of the equipment can be tailored to your exact needs. While more expensive than Shared or Virtual Hosting, Dedicated Hosting gives you complete control over server security and lets you harness 100% of the server’s processing power.
