Shared Server Hosting
As the name suggests, several webmasters share space on a single server. This type of hosting plan is good for small time ecommerce sites, static website or a personal website that need cost effective hosting solutions. The entry level websites don’t need high performance features and thus, shared hosting can fulfill their needs without having to pay larger amounts of money.

Dedicated Server Hosting

A server wholly dedicated for your website is a little costly but could not be affected by the other websites as it could happen in a shared server hosting. This type of website hosting service is most suitable for websites that attract higher traffic and cannot afford to be down due to business purposes such as for e-commerce sites.

Cloud Server Hosting
Based on the innovative cloud computing technologies, cloud hosting is done through multiple servers inter connected with each other. This is unlike shared or dedicated server hosting that are provided through only one server. The multiple servers acting as a single system has multiple advantages like load balancing, no single point of failure, non-reliance on a single server leading to higher security and also the facility to increase or decrease server resources as per your needs. It is also cost effective web hosting solution as the website hosting companies charge you for cloud hosting services on the basis of usage. As you can scale your resources up and down on a cloud server, you are able to use more resources only on the days when you expect higher traffic.
