Which hosting plan helps you meet your business goals?
If you are a new business owner, you already know you need a website with your own personalized domain. There are many web hosting options to choose from but how do you know which hosting plan works best for you and your business?
We've put together this web hosting guide to help answer any hosting questions you may have. We explain which hosting plans are the most popular, the least expensive and the most solid and robust hosting plans we offer.
If you need fewer resources for a new business website then cPanel, Plesk or Managed WordPress Hosting might be right for you. If your website is for a medium to enterprise-sized website then Business, VPS or Dedicated Server Hosting has the resources to handle your larger websites and applications.
cPanel hosting is the most popular platform for managing hosted websites. cPanel hosting allows developers the versatility and scalability they need for a growing business. You can add email accounts, subdomains, and even other websites provided your memory is enough to handle multiple sites. cPanel also offers multiple Content Management Systems (aka CMS's such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla) to be installed with the click of a button. cPanel runs exclusively on Linux servers.
Here are just a few top reasons cPanel hosting is the most popular hosting platform for managing hosted websites:
1. Easy-to-Use File manager
The easy-to-use and easy-to-read file manager is one of the top reasons cPanel is so popular. Web management novices can easily read and operate the file structure of the directories. It is super-simple to see what file goes where. This makes you more independent and need a developer a lot less.
2. User-Friendly Dashboard
Running a website is time-consuming. The easy-to-read and easy-to-use dashboard makes complex tasks easy to do saving you time. Time is the most valuable asset you have, and hosting your site on a cPanel hosting platform can help you save time.
3. Low-Cost Pricing Plans Available
When starting your first business, you are probably starting on a budget. cPanel plans can be very cost effective allowing new and novice web entrepreneurs to get their website and their business off the ground. Did I mention scalability? This allows you to increase your plan as time as your business needs grow.
Although you can build a WordPress or traditional site on the Plesk Windows server, Windows servers are perfect for ASP.NET, ASP or SQL applications. Installation is with the click of a button and Plesk offers industry-leading load times.
Plesk hosting is another popular shared web hosting platform. Plesk hosting runs on Linux and Windows servers and also offers a user-friendly control panel. Plesk offers scalability to grow with you as your business and website needs grow.
Managed WordPress Hosting
Building your site or sites on WordPress? You're not alone. WordPress is the most popular content management system in the world. WordPress is popular because it is easy to use and WordPress managed hosting is also easy to use. Managed WordPress Hosting works great with WordPress blogs and basic WordPress sites. Larger or heavily-visited WordPress sites, or WordPress sites with WooCommerce stores may require more hosting resources such as cPanel or Business Hosting.
Here are just some of the perks you get from Managed WordPress Hosting:
- Automatic WordPress installation and setup
- Automatic backups

Going pro with your website? Our Business Hosting Plans give you the ultra-fast speed of a Virtual Private Server with a super simple control panel. You get 2 GB RAM, unmetered traffic, unlimited websites & databases and one standard SSL certificate. And the perks just get better from there. Check out our Business Hosting plans and pick the plan that works best for your business.
Virtual Private Server Hosting is yet another upgrade in the world of web hosting. If you have a five page website for your business, this hosting platform is not for you. VPS server is for busier websites or sites with a lot of database calls (a medium-sized eCommerce site for instance).
Dedicated Server Hosting
Dedicated Server Hosting gives your larger website the resources it needs. Do you have larger traffic expectations or have a very large eCommerce platform? Then Dedicated Server Hosting is for you. Three levels of control give you even more flexibility. Choose from Self-Managed, Managed or Fully Managed hosting plans.
