Web Hosting is a service that comprises of computing resources such as disk space, CPU, memory, etc. which allows for the files of a website to be stored and accessed publicly on the Internet.

Like land in real estate, Web Hosting provides you the space on which you can store and build your website. Things such as text, images, databases, videos, emails, etc. A domain name is similar to a street address, which allows visitors to find your website.

GiddyHost offers several different types of hosting plans that work for all website hosting needs.

Shared Hosting:

Shared hosting is the most affordable option, but it does have its limitations. Shared hosting customers share the server’s resources with other customers. If another website on the same server is receiving large amounts of traffic, or using a lot of the server’s limited resources, it’s possible that your site may run slower as a result.

GiddyHost works hard to make sure all sites on a shared server never disrupt other sites, this is always a possibility due to the nature of the product. That’s why we recommend that you look at our more powerful options if you’re expecting to experience high traffic levels on your site.

WordPress Hosting:

GiddyHost managed WordPress hosting. It’s a scalable service that allows users to manage their WordPress sites worry-free via automatic updates, caching, daily backups, and a content delivery network (CDN).

Shared vs. VPS Hosting:

On a shared server, resources are shared by other users. On a VPS, these resources are more isolated which improves performance and helps to maintain stability. You also have the ability to control how much RAM your server uses.

Shared hosting is perfect for blogs, portfolios, personal/business sites, and database-driven sites.
