Hosting: Shared & Dedicated Virtual

A website consists of many files (among other things), and these files need to be “hosted” on a server so that the world can view your website. The hosting of these files is what we call “hosting.”

There are many differences and options when it comes to hosting, but we have simplified that to two options for our clients: Shared and Dedicated Virtual Hosting.

Shared Hosting

Most hosting that you see advertised on the internet is Shared Hosting.

What this means is that there is one server that holds hundreds (sometimes thousands) of websites. These websites also share the same software. If a website on that server has a problem, it can affect the other websites on that server. This is the downside, since your website can become slow if another website is consuming all of the resources on that server. The upside is that it’s extremely affordable.

As with anything you purchase, you get what you pay for.

Dedicated Virtual (DV) Hosting

The other option that we highly recommend and provide for our clients is Dedicated Virtual Hosting.

The difference is that the server will have multiple websites, but these websites do not share the same software. Each website has an allotted amount of resources that it can use, and if it exceeds that amount, it only affects that website. The result is a much quicker website.

We’ve moved websites from Shared to Dedicated Virtual Hosting and have seen speed increases of 3x.

Hi Shawn,

I would like to thank you for the superior service you have provided for us recently. Even though we just started working together, I am impressed with your service, knowledge and timely response to our needs. As with all technology, there is always some little things that seem to go wrong and we did not experience this on our project.

Even if you didn’t know the answers at first, you took the time to get the answers and provide us with solutions that got us up and running.

I would highly recommend Graticle to anyone looking for a capable and reputable organization to develop WordPress websites and Graphic Design. We have several other client projects on the horizon and I look forward to continue working with you in the future.

Thanks again,

Vince Kostelnik

I cannot say enough about Graticle Design. I recently wrote a book called The Daily Challenge. It is a daily devotional about the ministry with orphans and widows we work with in a number of different countries. I was stumped as how to promote it or the cover style that would be on it. Shawn developed the magnificent cover that literally sells and promotes the book. I have had nothing but positive feed back on the cover and the content of the book. Thank you Shawn for your commitment to our work.
