Offers a Variety of Hosting Options

Shared Hosting: Shared hosting means just that. Your website is hosted on a server shared by other websites. The advantage is shared cost while the disadvantage of a shared hosting account is that you're at the mercy of the other sites on your server. A really popular site may adversely affect the performance of your own site.

Cloud Based Hosting: is hosting that uses the resources of several clustered servers. Basically, this means that your website uses the virtual resources of several servers to accommodate all the aspects of hosting your site. The load is balanced, security is taken care of and hardware resources are available virtually so they can be used when needed. The cluster of servers is the cloud.

Virtual Private Servers: share one physical server but act like multiple, separate servers. A VPS is a stepping stone between shared hosting and getting your own dedicated machine. Even though each VPS instance shares hardware resources, they are allocated a dedicated slice of the computing resources.

Dedicated Web Hosting is what happens when a hosting service provider leases you a dedicated server. The server is custom-configured to your application, which could be a website, a private cloud, a database, streaming, VOIP, gaming, web hosting, or some other business need.

Colocation Web Services: When you colocate, you rent rack space from a data center. You bring in your own server hardware and they provide power, cooling, physical security, and an internet uplink. This means you're responsible for your own server software, data storage, backup procedures, etc.

Self Service Hosting: As the name implies, this is a completely DIY form of hosting. You buy the servers, install and configure all the software, ensure backups are made, provide cooling to keep the servers from melting down, and so on and so forth. Depending on your needs, you are essentially building a mini data center, which will require space, hardware, and staff to operate.
