Shared hosting is the least expensive hosting option available to you. With shared hosting multiple websites share space on the same server, which is what keeps costs low. The potential drawback of this option is that because space is shared, a traffic surge on one site can monopolize server resources and result in performance issues for another site sharing the same server. Still, because of its affordability shared hosting is usually a good option for small businesses, freelancers, bloggers, and individuals.
Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting
VPS hosting is something of a happy medium between shared hosting and dedicated hosting (see below). With VPS hosting you still share a server with other websites, but you have dedicated resources so traffic spikes on another site do not diminish the resources available to you. You are also able to customize your setup the same way you’re able to with a dedicated server.
Dedicated hosting is the most expensive option because it allocates dedicated servers to each customer. With this option you’ll have the entire server to yourself, which means speed shouldn’t be an issue. Having dedicated servers is usually only necessary for websites that receive very large amounts of traffic.
