Dedicated vs VPS Hosting vs cloud hosting
lets you first go through PS hosting
an Ps plan giens 4 cores, 4gb 4am , 120GB SSD, Bandwidth limit of 4TB.
RAM should be docube than cpu cores.
Not needed 120GB, needed only 20GB.
Apache server consumes more memory than nginx. PS managed serer.
just highend resources than PS but same managed hosting. they give root access. some plans not in ps.
again there is no more customization. monthly / annual billings.
Cloud hosting platform
Easy to create /deploy virtual machines & destroy the same.
Customization resources RAM,CPU cores, SSD or hdd,
Customization of softwares Nginx,ubuntu, apache etc
Iaas Infrastructure as Service Need a sysadmin. or go for managed hosting.
you may wonder by billing of cloudplatform.
- cpu cores
Example: 2 cores 4GB RAM 30GB SSD, Bandwidth billing google N2 Standard instance costing me $50.
save google cloud billing with cloudflare free cdn. Cloudflare + Google Cloud Platform
reduction in bandwidth and up to 75% savings on egress pricing

Managed hosting vs Managed wordpress hosting
Managed hosting inloes ust taking care of server related issues,
Ex: ps,dedicated and shared hosting providers
If any errors occur with CMS or application level they don’t provide services. that’s where managed wp hosting exists.
Managed wordpress hosting
as of now eery hosting provider has managed wp hosting, early wp engine
kinsta billing is per request ust like CDN – Content delivery network
Kinsta uses google cloud platform as (iass) + software = managed wordpress hosting (Saas – Software as service).
Free hosting not always free, its a promotional trick,
However google’s blogspot platform free for blogs.
Google’s cloud platform free trials with $300 credit 1 year validity.
Digitalocean free trial with 100$
Alibaba cloud 300$ to 1000$ credit
Amazon cloud always free policy
top 10 cloud hosting providers
Checking company history reviews helpful rather than pricing.
my advice is, go with the digital ocean for mid-development & small business companies. if you want to spend &100 hosting, for large companies recommend google cloud and amazon if the hosting budget is $$$$ in the month.
All are unmanaged cloud hosting services except Cloudways.
I don’t know kinsta cloud hosting powered by google cloud.
Check out my experience with google cloud.
Note Auto scaling & load balancing charges separately.
KInsta Hosting price: it’s a managed WordPress hosting company 100$ like wp engine 5gb SSD, 50GB Bandwidth.
SHared hosting comparison
why pay $100 or $50 per month, why don;t $10 or $5 by Sharing same resources,
Problem: limited resources, not controlling the resources usage,
The limits per account designed in whm cpanel almost every shared hosting server uses apache server which is supported by cpanel.
you must read shared hosting limitation beyond unlimited.
if your site has less traffic, better to starts with shared hosting.

All of the websites are not so popular.
All the plans are promotional one year based plans. for renewal price will be double.
let calculate money I spent on hosting for the year.
Instead, of lot shared hosting accounts why don’t I buy a VPS plan (you may think about this)
Few years ago, I bought a VPS plan includes 2 GB RAM 4 CPU cores with 5 websites. one of the website PHP Cron job slowing the server. that VPS COST 3600 for a month. continued for 6 months. changed my idea to host on different servers. Cpanel cost $10 /month look at Cpanel alternatives
Actually, I didn’t notice my hosting expenditure until I reviewed here.
realized we can get shared hosting for the single domain for 1 year 99/m, up to 5 200INR for unlimited 300INR per month.Some of the cheap hosting providers only target business website they even don’t have Cpanel, they offer very cheap 0.01$ for 1st month and renew automatically by using credit card $5-10 dollars monthly.
