Dedicated Server Hosting
Dedicated server hosting is the type of hosting in which you rent a physical server for hosting your website. The server is kept in the data center of the hosting provider. The word "dedicated" implies that no other website or application other than yours runs on this server. All the server resources like RAM, storage etc. are dedicated for your use. You are charged on a monthly basis and your rent is independent of your usage.
Dedicated server hosting is ideal for medium to large sized websites that need a substantial amount of resources for its working. The configuration and set up is usually handled by the dedicated hosting provider but a system administrator is needed to maintain the website.

Shared Web Hosting
In shared web hosting, a physical server is the home of more than one website. The resources of the physical server are shared among multiple websites. Hence, at a particular point of time, if one website is using the majority of resources, the other websites will suffer. Hence, you can choose shared hosting only if your website is not performance oriented or is small sized. Also, the security of the server can be compromised if one of these websites is hacked.
Shared Web Hosting is cheaper than dedicated server hosting but also offers fewer resources comparably. You can start off with shared hosting if your website is small and migrate to dedicated or cloud if the users grow in size.
Virtual Private Server(VPS)
The VPS or Virtual Private Server is a technology through which you can divide the server into many virtual servers. You can allocate the resources separately to each vps and the vps will be able to use the allocated resources only. Unlike shared hosting, the websites hosted on one vps do not have any effect on other websites.
Vps can be useful for small applications but in case of medium-sized or large applications, a dedicated server would be more useful. The security aspect is better than shared hosting but less than dedicated servers.

It is latest technology available to us for web hosting. "Cloud" refers to a technology where a group or cluster of servers performs the tasks collectively. The website can be scaled easily and you can upgrade or downgrade your configuration as per the requirement. Hence, if your user base increases and you want to upgrade your server configuration such as RAM, storage or bandwidth it can be done almost instantaneously. Also, there is no one physical server so there the fear of a server crash is non-existent.
Pricing is done on usage basis. Most cloud hosting providers charge on the basis of the features you avail on an hourly basis. There is a separate charge for computing capacity, storage, security etc.

Reseller Web Hosting
Reseller Web Hosting is another type of web hosting in which the customer can rent a shared or dedicated server with the hosting provider and can use the server to host third-party users. With third-party users, we mean that the reseller customer can host websites for other users and charge for it.
The reseller customer can use control panels such as WHM to handle all the user accounts and perform various activities. Your client's support and billing can be handled by either you or by your hosting provider. If you plan to host other websites on your server, you can choose reseller hosting.

Colocation, as the name suggests, is the type of hosting in which you keep your server in the data center of the hosting provider. You can rent rack space for your server(s) and the data center is responsible for server hardware maintenance like cooling, power, and security. You are responsible for all the software related issues. Some hosting providers offer the option of hardware replacement but in most cases, you are responsible for that as well. You can choose this type of hosting if you already have a server of your own and need an infrastructure to space it in.
We provide best-in-class colocation services with which the customer can avail our data center facilities along with additional features.
