A web hosting company that manages hardware resources for multiple websites has more purchasing power. Thus, you invest in the latest technologies that allow you to take advantage of high-performance web servers with processing power, internal memory and other computing resources. This improves website performance, and allows visitors to load pages quickly

It's good when you immediately find a reliable, and most importantly, fast hosting, which will also, if necessary, help solve a problem that has arisen, for example, with data recovery. I wonder what hosting company you yourself use to host your sites?

What are webhosting
Hosting and their servers can be virtual, dedicated, cloud and specialized.

Virtual. Cheap and designed for a small load. For example, suitable for a portfolio website. They are not suitable for large resources: they will not withstand the load due to the large number of visitors.

Dedicated (VPS). Expensive, but stable. When you buy a dedicated webserver, you buy a separate computer, which will be monitored by hosting workers. Suitable for large sites: online stores, portals.

Cloud. Expensive, but they cannot be "broken" by a large flow of users. For such hosting, the site works on several servers at once: virtual and dedicated. They unite and form a common cloud network. If one part of the network breaks, the site will continue to work thanks to the other. This option is suitable for online stores, corporate portals, news sites - in general, resources with high traffic.

Specialized. Very expensive, designed to store a large amount of information: files and videos, databases, archives. Such hosting providers are suitable for sites where you need to show a lot of videos. For example, for some online school. Or for sites where archives are stored, information on transactions. It makes no sense to store such information on the main server: it takes up a lot of space. Therefore, specialized hosting is used for this.

Differences between VPS and regular hosting
VPS is a virtual dedicated server. It combines the functions of a dedicated and virtual webserver. To create a VPS, one physical server is divided into several virtual ones. Therefore, one computer can support several sites at the same time.

1. VPS is owned by one person, and in regular hosting, several web resources are located on the same server. At the same time, sites can belong to different people. This reduces uptime and data security.

2. You can install your own applications on the VPS and write scripts. You can't add them on regular hosting.

3. VPS runs on a dedicated IP server, not a shared one. The problem with shared IPs is that they can be blocked by the government or end up on the spam list. This can happen if the "neighbors" send unsolicited emails or engage in illegal activities. This will not happen with dedicated IPs.

4. Root and SSH access to the VPS. Root is the main account on the system. With this access, the user will be able to change any settings in the operating system of the server. SSH access is designed to manage files: upload, delete, move.

5. VPS is not affected by hardware failures. If the hardware on which the VPS is located breaks down, then this VPS will be transferred to another computer.

How to choose a hosting provider
To do this, you need to look at 5 points:

The amount of free disk space.
Functionality and capabilities of the service.
Technical support work.
Tariff prices.
provider reliability.

The amount of disk space. In simpler terms, the disk space where the site will be stored. For small resources - where there is not a lot of textual information and pictures - 1 GB of free space is enough. For instance, a business card site takes up 300-600 MB.

If you need a larger website, it is more difficult to calculate the required space. Here you need to look at the amount of materials that you plan to place on the site, its formats, and the amount of traffic. In order not to be mistaken, it is better to write to support.

For large resources, such as online stores, corporate blogs, VIP or VPS server tariffs are suitable. They usually have a lot of space and RAM. It is important that websites work on SSD: resources are loaded slowly on HDD.
