    Choosing the Right Web Hosting Provider for Now and the Future - Room to grow

    (Page 3 of 5 )

    Now that weíve covered functionality, which is a REALLY good point, we come to another one: having room to grow.

    Didnít we just cover this?  Didnít we just talk about having the functionality we might need to expand down the road?  The answer to this is yes and no.  We DID talk about the web hosting provider having the features you need, but thatís not what Iím alluding to.

    Picture this.  You put up your website, do a little advertising, and itís a complete hit.  Customers flock to your site, and you find yourself upgrading your site with new functionality a few months later. With more functionality comes even more traffic.  Next thing you know, your website starts to run super slow.  There are just too many visitors to your site for your web hosting providerís web server to handle.

    So what are your options?  Well, they are to either a) move to a web server with less customers on it (which might be a premium plan, if your web hosting provider offers it), or b) move to a dedicated server.  The benefits of a web server with fewer websites running on it should be obvious.  This should become more apparent when you understand that a single server supporting shared hosting accounts (which is the standard inexpensive hosting account) can have literally HUNDREDS of websites on it.

    A dedicated server is just what it sounds like. It's a whole web server dedicated to only you and your company.  Yes, this is more expensive, but by the time you need this level of service, it should more than pay for itself.
