    Introduction to Choosing the Right Web Host - Specific hosting for specific websites


    (Page 3 of 4 )

    What type of website do you have? Do you have an e-commerce site, an informational site, or just a personal page? This is very important when determining the type of web hosting would be best for you.

    Of course, you get what you pay for when it comes to web hosting. If you want an e-commerce site which will need support for various scripts and databases, you will pay much more than someone looking to put a website online which only consists of a few pages. The best hosting is probably the most expensive hosting, but you don't need to spend $100 per month for a hosting company when you have a one page website which gets 100 visitors per month. That is just a waste of money.

    For those people who are in need of a web host for their small personal website which has a small amount of visitors per month, you would want to look at a shared hosting plan. A plan like this will give you exactly what you need to get your website onto the Internet, and these plans typically range in price from free to $15 per month.

    The free plans are nice, but you can expect to have ads on your site from the web host. If this doesn't bother you, then the free plans are a great choice. If you don't want any ads from a third party on your website, then you will have to choose a paid plan. These plans range in price, but are very affordable. Prices generally vary according to the features, bandwidth, and disk storage offered by the web hoster.

    For those people looking to put an e-commerce site, or other larger and complicated sites, onto the Internet, you would want a dedicated hosting plan. This type of plan is much more expensive than a shared hosting plan, but you get a lot more for your money. A dedicated hosting plan means that you will be the only site using a particular server, which means much better performance for your website.

     When choosing this type of hosting plan, make sure it includes support for various types of scripts which will enhance the look and feel of your website. A dedicated hosting plan just allows you to have greater control than a shared hosting plan, because you are actually leasing the entire server from the hosting company to use as you wish.
