Which Hosting Environment Is Best For Your Website?

Hi everyone, I’m Chris with Tiny Frog
Technologies, the hosting maintenance manager here. And today I want to talk to
you a little bit about hosting options. There are quite a few hosting options
out there, the first one being shared hosting. Now, shared hosting is kind of like
renting an apartment with friends. You share pretty much everything. And the
pros and cons of that is, you know, it’s simple, it’s affordable.
The cons – well there’s a lot of web sites on the same server and you don’t have
full control over this server. The next option would be a VPS which is a virtual
private server. This is more like condo living. You still share with others
(resources) except you have your own dedicated space. But you’re still
responsible for your unit so this means CPU time and memory you’re sharing but
your disk space you’re not sharing. Pros and cons – well, pros it’s more powerful than shared hosting, usually better performance and faster loading times. The cons are of course higher cost, sometimes more technical setup, you know is
involved in the process. The third hosting option I would like to bring up
is dedicated hosting. This is like owning your own house so all resources belong
to you, you don’t share anything everything is yours. The pros to that is
you have full control over the server, great performance. Cons are the higher
cost and higher responsibility. There’s another option which would be cloud
hosting. Now, cloud hosting is an entirely different living environment. This is
more like renting with normal hosting that gives you resources, memory, and CPU time. You don’t have a machine, your hardware’s virtual which makes the cost
pretty efficient. The pros to this is it’s cheaper than most, you only pay for what you use. The cons are it takes advanced knowledge in IT so be aware of this when considering cloud hosting. It’s also less
secure and can be vulnerable to cyber attacks. Now here at Tiny Frog we offered
what is called a managed hosting. Now, managed hosting would be like townhome living. You share some areas, but not everything. It’s affordable shared
hosting with limited websites per secured server. And we also offer
dedicated servers where you have your own secure server. If you would like more
