Free Web Hosting
Sure it sounds good and it may be all you need but you do sacrifice by choosing free hosting plans.
Shared Web Hosting (MOST COMMON)
Shared hosting means you are paying for a portion of a server and other clients hosting their sites will also be located on the same server.
This is the most commonly chosen type because for the vast majority of sites on the internet this is all they will need.
Cloud Web Hosting
Cloud hosting plans are high performance plans and usually scalable as your site grows in size.
Reseller Web Hosting
Have you ever wanted to start your own web hosting company, but thought all the logistics would be a nightmare? That is where reseller hosting plans come in. As a reseller you are renting space on a server and you can sell that space in smaller packages to your own clients under your own company name, you handle the billing and they handle all the IT and server management.
VPS Web Hosting
VPS or Virtual Private Server is closer to the performance of a dedicated server without the price. Most websites do not require this kind of performance.
Dedicated Web Hosting
Dedicated Hosting is exactly what you would expect, you get a dedicated server and IP address(s). If you run a site with high traffic or a lot of videos and media, then you will probably want to look at a dedicated plan.
WordPress Web Hosting
WordPress can be installed on all web hosting plans and types. For a simple blog, you need nothing more than a simple shared hosting plan, when you site grows you can move up to a higher performance plans. As a result of WordPress’ popularity some hosts have started to offer WordPress specific/optimized plans.
