Frequently asked questions about website hosting
What's web hosting, and why does my ecommerce need it?
If you want your online store to be available 24/7, it must be hosted on a computer that’s permanently connected to the internet: a webserver. Web hosting provides storage for your ecommerce site data and files so your store is accessible via online browsers.
In short: web hosting is like a storage space for your online store on a web server.
What are the main types of website hosting
Shared Web Hosting
Shared web hosting means that your site will be sharing the same server with other websites. It is an easy and affordable solution for new sites with low traffic. However, it is not suitable for large websites with high-volume traffic that require excellent performance.
Your online store will be hosted on an entire server. Dedicated hosting is suitable for high-traffic sites and is usually more expensive than shared hosting.
Virtual private server (VPS) hosting is a mix of shared and dedicated hosting. A virtual server appears to each client as a dedicated server even though it is being shared by multiple websites. VPS hosting gives you full access to configure the server – like dedicated hosting – but for a lower cost.
Unlike traditional hosting – which offers single server hosting solutions – cloud hosting enables you to host your site on a network of interconnected virtual and physical cloud servers. Cloud hosting offers an affordable, scalable, and reliable web infrastructure suitable for both small and large online stores.
A reseller provides you with his allotted hard drive space and bandwidth to host your website on behalf of third parties. In other words, the reseller purchases the host’s services wholesale and sells them to you. It is great if you have multiple domains.
How to choose the best solution for my PrestaShop store
There are 5 points to consider when choosing a hosting provider:
Expected traffic and size
Answer questions such as: How many visitors do you expect each month on your website? How many items do you have in your catalog?
The web host can offer several security services, such as data backup and restoration, protection against computer attacks, SSL certificate, regular server updates, etc.
The hosting price can vary depending on your expected traffic, the size of your store, and your preferred web hosting option (shared server, dedicated server, etc.).
Reliable technical support is essential, especially if you have limited technical skills or if you’re getting started with an ecommerce business.
