    Web Hosting Flavors: The Famous 4

    (Page 1 of 5 )

    Shared, virtual private server, dedicated, and co-located--which flavor of Web hosting is right for you? Find out the pros and cons of each, and whether you're paying too much for what you really need.

    It might be easier to count the number of flavors one can find in ice creams than to count the different web hosting flavors. That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but going by the current trend it does not seem far from reality.

    Just for starters, "Free Hosting, Shared Hosting, Semi-Dedicated Hosting, Dedicated Hosting, Virtual Private Server(VPS) Hosting, Managed Hosting, Budget Hosting, Reseller Hosting, Custom Hosting" and so on is what we see upon doing a simple search for hosting on the Web. Though the search shows a number of results referring to different flavors of web hosting, in essence they all are variations of four main flavors: the famous four (Shared, VPS, Dedicated, and Co-located).

    This article explains the concept behind the famous four as well as the benefits of selecting one over another.

    Looking down at a hosting package from 1024 feet, all that is seen is a datacenter housing the servers that hosts your information. However, the difference is more visible when looked at from a closer range.

    Not only do we see a difference in access speeds and server configurations, but we also see a difference in the way these two variables, along with other offerings are bundled and packaged.
