  • Classified Website Hosting : Dedicated or Cloud ?

    Recently, I hold two great classified websites based on PHP and MySQL. Currently, its giving out around 300 visitors/month and I am expecting to gain decent traffic within a year.

    So, what would you suggest me to go for ?

    I have decided the following two solutions:

    1) A fully managed web hosting server which will cost me around $160/month.

    2) A fully managed cloud solution, which will cost me around $100/month.

    It's hard to decide, what would you recommend ?

    A cloud offering from a uk web hosting provider would be more affordable since, cloud is known for greater reliability, flexibility, scalability and offers 100% network uptime. But, if you need more security then a dedicated server would be a great option solution than that of Cloud solution. In future, if your classified grows larger than you are expecting you can easily upgrade your hosting plan to a Dedicated.

      Since, your monthly visitors are around 300, I would suggest you to with a small business hosting package at this initial stage. If in future, your web hosting requirements increases, you can opt for any higher web hosting package such as VPS, cloud or a dedicated. But, IMO you should opt for a business hosting plan.

        300 visitors per month isn't a large volume of traffic for now. Though Im sure it'd increase in future as your site becomes more popular.
        Until your website requirements starts to increase, I would suggest you to keep the expenditure low. Im not sure about the size of your website, based on certain assumptions, I would like to suggest you to take a look at the Cloud-01 plan offered with their Shared Cloud solutions. The resources offered with it should be enough for now (my assumption though).
