Are you going to set up a Magento store but are unsure of what kind of hosting to get? Web hosting comes in many forms: shared, cloud, VPS, semi-dedicated, and dedicated. It can all be a bit complicated which is why we have written a description for three of the most popular forms of web hosting available in today’s market and why we recommend one of them.

Shared hosting:

A decent shared hosting package will cost about £10 a month. The disadvantage with shared hosting is that your website will be one among 1000 other websites. This could cause your website to be slow and have a negative effect on your search rankings.

Dedicated Server / Dedicated Hosting:

Dedicated hosting is aimed at being a hosting solution for major online businesses, with a powerful server that will put all of its efforts on you and your site alone. This ensures that your IP address remains unique, clean and guarded. We run Magento on a dedidated server and charge £45 per month for Magento hosting. This includes customer support.

VPS:

Though you’ve got control over your service and its highly customizable, it is still within a shared hosting realm which means if someone is heavily using the server your server will be affected. This form of web hosting is often utilized by medium-sized companies and it will most likely cost around $30 to $40 per month.
Google wants to provide the best possible experience to its search users and will favour a faster website that resides in a good neighbourhood – so it uses page speed as one of its key ranking factors! This means that yes, your website’s neighbours can influence its rankings. On a shared server, you have zero control over the other sites that get hosted on the same server as yours. The performance, quality, nature and characteristics of these neighbour websites are considered before Google ranks your website.
