How do I choose a web hosting plan?

Before you choose your web hosting plan, you will need to think about your website’s objectives. Assess your expected traffic, the purpose of your site (blog, showcase site, e-commerce, etc.), whether you’re developing your site with a CMS (WordPress, Drupal, PrestaShop, Joomla, etc.), and your disk space requirements for backups. Choose the best hosting plan for your project, depending on the resources you need.

What are the differences between a shared hosting plan and a dedicated hosting plan?

The main difference between a shared hosting and a dedicated hosting plan is that with shared hosting, you share the server resources with other users. For example, a virtual private server (VPS) is part of a physical server and shares the resources of that server. On a dedicated server, you are allocated all of the server’s resources. Dedicated servers allow you to manage your infrastructure in a more personalised way.
