Web hosting is an integral part of makes your website work and is also a key component of how fast and secure your site is. In order for your website to be seen at your web URL, it must be hosted on a server by a hosting provider. There are two types of hosting services: Shared and Dedicated. Dedicated hosting is the Most Ideal.
Many websites are hosted on the same server which is called shared hosting. This can be problematic because other websites can load down the server, making your website slower and creating a poor user experience. In addition, if a website sharing a server gets hacked, it puts the other websites at risk. Examples of shared hosting providers include GoDaddy and Hostgator.
On the other hand, dedicated hosting is much faster and more secure because your website is the only website on that server. One of our preferred dedicated hosting providers is Cloudways. Their hosting is very affordable and works seamlessly with WordPress. In addition, they allow you to choose from very trusted hosting services: Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services, Digital Cloud, and Vultr.
