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.

I was very happy with your work. The work was done in a timely manner, I now have a very professional website which contains all the features and items we discussed.

Perhaps the most important part is that you took the extra step as I just found out my web site now shows up when one Google’s Abbotthouse Sunriver OR., or Abbothouse Sunriver OR., This never happened before you did my web site as I spell Abbott the correct way or the way it was originally spelled and everyone else spells it Abbot. The new abbreviated way. Anyways thanks for taking that extra step.

I have recommended you to some other people at Abbotthouse and hope you have received some extra business from my recommendation.
