Shared vs. Dedicated??? Servers
It sounds mysterious doesn’t it?! Essentially what we’re talking about is a shared (server) versus dedicated (server) for storing your website data and files. Your web hosting company may offer both shared and dedicated server options. So which is the best fit for your business? Here are some things to consider before deciding. If you have a large website with high traffic and voluminous files a dedicated server might be your best option but keep in mind that dedicated hosting will more expensive than the shared option but will allow you more control and management options. The shared hosting simply means your website will be stored on the server with other websites. Shared hosting option is a good option for small to mid-size websites and blogs.

Hosting cPanel is an administrative software tool designed to allow you easy website management. cPanel allows you to manage your website content, email, security, automates daily tasks, offers a built-in spam filter, traffic tracking tools, and so much more. If you are the adventurous sort and would like to manage your own website hosting cPanel is a good option to consider.

And finally…

E-mail Hosting services are another offering of your web hosting company. E-mail services should include ample storage, as well as virus and spam protection. What’s more having an email address that matches your domain name is a great way to show you mean business. Typically your e-mail accounts can be accessed either online via webmail or can be set up for use in your favorite e-mail program, such as Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Gmail or Mac Mail.
