So many new enthusiastic bloggers are stepping into self-hosted web hosting with WordPress to start their professional blogging career.

What I noticed from last two years of my blogging career is so many new bloggers don’t know basic things about web hosting, types web hostings available at present and which one is suitable for them.

When I bought the web hosting for my blog(initial days of blogging), I didn’t know all this information, blindly bought the shared web hosting from BlueHost.

Recently I went to my friends home and he knows that I am blogging since a long time, suddenly he asked me how to start a blog and what resources he need to set up blog.

I explained him everything like you need to buy a domain name, choose best web hosting and install WordPress CMS (content management system).

Today I Thought of sharing an infographic about web hosting which explains everything about what is the web hosting, web server and types of web hosting services and its starting prices.

Once your site traffic increases you server will consume  more resources on that server, so web hosting provider will ask you to upgrade your service, shared web hosting prices start from $4 per month.

Here the main server is divided into multiple virtual servers which act as an individual web server with defined bandwidth, uptime, and space. So here resources are not shared with other users, it can handle a decent amount of traffic without making any problem to you.

VPS is suitable for professional bloggers and companies which have more than 100,000 unique visits to their website, VPS hosting prices start from $19 per month.

The user gets dedicated web server which has root access to his people (administrators), in dedicated web hosting there are two categories like managed web hosting and unmanaged web hosting.

In managed web hosting, the company (service provider) will take care of the maintenance of the server but in unmanaged web hosting user has to take care of everything related to that web server.
