What type of web hosting do I need?
Shared Hosting
Shared hosting means just that. Your website is hosted on a server shared by other websites. The advantage of this setup is the shared cost. You can pay as little as £5 to £10 per month for sharing a super server with (probably) hundreds (or thousands) of other websites.

The biggest disadvantage of a shared hosting account is that you're at the mercy of the other sites on your server. A really popular site may adversely affect the performance of your own site. On the other hand, if you're the most popular site on the server, you get to use a super server for a very low price.

When most people start an online business they usually start out with a shared hosting plan to minimise costs, and they're not likely getting a ton of traffic initially.

Shared hosting is good for a brochure type site or a newer site that doesn't get a lot of traffic.

Price Range: £5 to £20/month.

Our plans start from £3.60 per month. If you're an agency and would like to talk more then email us at [email protected] and one of our reps will be more than happy to help.
Virtual Private Server (VPS)
Virtual private servers share one physical server but act like multiple, separate servers. A VPS is a stepping stone between shared hosting and getting your own dedicated machine. Even though each VPS instance shares hardware resources, they are allocated a dedicated slice of the computing resources.

A VPS avoids the problem of having your hosting neighbours bring down your website, while avoiding the cost of a dedicated server.

Price Range: Most VPS hosting packages cost between £50 and £200. Pricing is based on the guaranteed CPU and memory (RAM) you get.

Our plans start from £14.00 per month. If you would like to talk more then email us at [email protected] and one of our reps will be more than happy to help.
Dedicated Web Server
When you have a dedicated server, it means you are renting one physical server from a hosting company. You can have full control (called "root" permissions in Linux) if you want it.

With a dedicated server, you don't have to worry about other websites on a shared server taking up your resources and slowing your website down.

A dedicated server is generally the highest level of server you would need if your online business grows into a presence that is getting a lot of website traffic. While the costs of a dedicated server are significantly higher than shared hosting, your business will be at a point that can easily afford the necessary costs of having your own server.

Pricing: Dedicated servers are priced from £100 and up. But if you are considering a dedicated server, you should also consider the costs of hiring a system administrator to take care of the technical details.

Managed WordPress Hosting
With the increasing popularity of WordPress as a web building platform, many web hosting servers are offering what are referred to as "Managed WordPress Hosting".

In a nutshell, managed WordPress hosting is a service where the web hosting provider will keep your WordPress installation up-to-date which can help protect your site from security threats that would allow hackers into your website.

While not as inexpensive as shared web hosting, this is a great option for both start-up businesses and established businesses that use the WordPress platform.

Our plans start from £3.60 per month. If you're an agency and would like to talk more then email us at [email protected] and one of our reps will be more than happy to help.
