There are 3 Common Types of Web Hosting
- Shared Web Hosting
- VPS (Virtual Private Server)
- Dedicated Server
Shared web hosting service refers to a web hosting service where many websites reside on one web server connected to the Internet.
This is generally the most economical option for hosting, as the overall cost of
server maintenance is amortized over many customers.
VPS (Virtual Private Server)
A virtual private server (VPS) is a virtual machine sold as a service by an
Internet hosting service.
A VPS runs its own copy of an operating system, and customers have superuser-level access to that operating system instance, so they can install almost any software that runs on that OS.
A dedicated server is the ideal solution for larger businesses and high-traffic websites.
Dedicated servers allow for maximum customization, configuration, installation,
and overall flexibility.
If you are a blogger or website owner in the Philippines, some of the more
popular local web host are the following:
Most of these Philippine Web Hosts accept payment via paypal, visa and MasterCard.
I myself use a pre-paid visa card for my online purchases like web hosting,
WordPress theme subscription, plugin subscription and domain name renewals.
The best thing about hosting your blog or website locally if your primary audience
is located in the Philippines is that payment can be made via local western union
and local banks.
Solid Hosting for instance, accept payment through bank deposit to Banco De Oro
It also accepts payment via GlobeGCash and LBC.
