Cloud server

This’s maybe the next big thing in the hosting world, it’s comparatively new, but definitely has the high potential of becoming the sole solution to data storage and hosting in near future. In this case, the server is outsourced and is run on virtualized software. There’re a large number of data centers which are operating on servers in virtualized environment. So, a single server essentially produces many instances of VPS. To a user, these things appear like nothing but dedicated servers. However, in reality, they actually run on a large number of different servers. So, it is like a dedicated server, but the user obviously doesn’t know what hardware her/his server is currently operating on.

Dedicated server

This’s the traditional, reliable and highly recommendable way of hosting just about anything, be it highly interactive webs, apps or anything else. It follows a simple protocol in which, a user buys a server from a provider and pays charges monthly.

A basic server costs in the range of $50 to $100 /month, and the cost goes up depending upon the features offered as a part of the package.

The user can access it within a matter of few minutes, since the time needed for installing an instance is obviously far lesser than time needed for installing a complete web server.
