What Should You Know About Choosing a Web Host?
It seems simple to select a web hosting service. Most people choose a web host by how large they are or the lowest price. Over the past 15 years Success Builders has tried over eight different website services from the largest to the smaller unknown hosts and been very disappointed by most! We have found that the larger names do not provide the best services when you have issues and sometimes the same happens with the smaller services. Success Builders has partnered with a web hosting service that we have been with over 10 years and they have continued to provide the best service, support and up time we have found. If you are in need to website hosting you can depend on contact us and we will be happy to provide you with hosting services.

More About Website Hosting (From Tech Republic)
- Shared: Probably the most common option for small businesses with minimal levels of traffic, shared hosting means that more than one website is stored on a single server or a single piece of hardware. Shared servers are often the least expensive option, which makes them appealing to startups and other small entrepreneurial businesses.
- Dedicated: When a single server plays host to a single website, it is called a dedicated server. This configuration allows the computer power of that server to be concentrated on just the website it is hosting. The dedicated server is usually more expensive than a shared server but that extra cost can be worth it to businesses where website performance is paramount to success.
- Cloud hosting (VPS): Similar to the shared server, virtual private servers (VPS) allows many websites to be hosted by one cloud-based server system. A VPS is essentially the cloud-based version of a shared server; however, because of the scalability, flexibility, and redundancy of cloud computing, the VPS can offer more features. A VPS is often a good choice for businesses with computational and feature requirements that fluctuate over time.
- WordPress: Physically speaking, a managed Word Press server can be hosted by any of the three previously mentioned configurations; the difference is that a WordPress server is specifically designed and optimized to serve WordPress pages, which are often used by bloggers, journalists, and other content creators.
The type of web hosting server your business ultimately chooses will be dependent on your service requirements. A thorough assessment of your business needs with regard to your website should be made before you begin to consider any web hosting service. In addition, thought should be given to future needs and the potential for your chosen web hosting service to be accommodating and flexible.
