FAQs

What is web hosting?

Web hosting is an online service that allows your created website to be made available to visitors on the internet. Every website you visit online needs web hosting to store the various files that make up a complete website, including code, images, videos and more.

There are different types of web hosting and web hosting services that are suitable for different use cases and needs, as there is no universal or single best web hosting provider or service for every use case. Web hosting options that should be considered include:

  • Dedicated hosting vs. shared hosting: Do you want your web application to run on dedicated servers that exclusively run your application, or are you okay with your web application securely sharing server space with other applications?
  • Price and affordability: While cheap web hosting can help reduce costs, some hosting companies may skimp on features (such as security or performance features) to reduce costs. Make sure your hosting plan meets all your needs beyond price.
  • Web hosting provider location: Where does the majority of your traffic come from? Does your web hosting service have data centers in geographic regions you need most to ensure your website's performance?
  • Included or free features: Many web hosting providers offer features or tools included with their web hosting service (such as a free SSL certificate, free domain, free website builder, free website migration services, unlimited websites, unlimited bandwidth, and more). These included offers can be great, but make sure you're getting everything you need from your hosting provider.

Web hosting is crucial to the success of freelancers, so it’s important to do thorough research on the web hosting provider you’re considering.

Popular web hosting services available for freelancers include:

  • Managed web hosting via Cloudways
  • Virtual machines with a range of configurations for different use cases
  • Managed Kubernetes for scaling and orchestration
  • App platform for fully managed infrastructure
  • Managed databases for MongoDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL and Redis®
  • Object storage that is S3-compatible with an integrated Content Delivery Network (CDN)
  • And more!

There are many great web hosting providers for freelancing businesses, but it’s worth considering providers like centron for your web hosting.

The difference between dedicated hosting and shared hosting is that with dedicated hosting, your own website is hosted on a server where no other applications are hosted. With shared hosting, your website or web application is hosted alongside the applications of other users or companies.

Typically, shared hosting is less expensive and does not require the user or business owner to be technically savvy. However, if you choose shared hosting, it is important that you make sure that the web hosting companies you use shared hosting with ensure that individual users or businesses on the shared hosting plan are segregated and secure. In other words, security is a much more important consideration when choosing shared web hosting for your freelancing business.
