THE TIER 1 HOSTING
So these are the main root cause of your hosting. Tier 1 companies lay all the groundwork for the computers and connectivity and, indeed set up the servers. Tier 1 deals in masses and not for individual hosting. Hence giving it the best performance. They generally sell to resellers or big brands who can further divide their servers into bits and give them to their customers.
So if you have a website that receives thousands of views per day, you go to the boss i.e. Tier 1 hosting providers. Some of the big names in this race include Google, Intel, Amazon, and Microsoft.
TIER 2 HOSTING
Most of the TIER 2 guys use the already set-up servers from Tier 1 guys. But still, they give enough resources, and that too in a proper sense hence making them reliable for use.
While the remaining of them has their own servers but unlike TIER 1 guys, they are very limited in the sense of hardware, bandwidth, and server locations so before buying from them, have a look at whether they provide everything up to your need and the server region from where your most traffic arrives. TIER 2 guys sell their hosting to an individual, but of course, their price is a bit high than the TIER 3 ones which we will talk about in a bit.
Although the high price makes up for the performance which the TIER 2 Servers provide.
TIER 3 HOSTINGS
Well, believe me or not, with some hard work and dedication, you can start your own hosting by reselling the hosting servers of the TIER 2 brands, and it’s totally legit.
These TIER 3 brands offer the hosting for the cheapest, and I would say, they are pretty perfect for anyone who is just starting out in this race and whose website gets anywhere around 1000 hits per day.
They generally compromise on speed but not drastically, but you can notice the difference between TIER 2 and TIER 3 hostings.
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND BEFORE BUYING
Choose your hosting provider wisely and check their reviews before making harsh and sudden decisions.
Try your best to avoid shared hosting if you have an established site, and if you are new, don’t overspend on your hosting if you are long in the game or if you are using that stuff for business, then please don’t under spend on this kind of thing.
Because websites matter, and like they say,” FIRST IMPRESSION IS THE LAST IMPRESSION,” So keep in mind your client must not feel that the website is unresponsive due to your hosting’s bad loading time.
