These are the six types of web hosting you will most often come across:
1. Shared hosting- Perfect for entry-level website hosting. This is where your website will be stored on the same server as multiple other websites, that could be anywhere between hundreds or thousands of others.
2. Virtual private server (VPS) hosting- A VPS hosting service mimics a dedicated server, but is within a shared hosting environment. This one’s for website owners that need more control, but don’t want to invest in a dedicated server.
3. Dedicated server hosting- This option gives website owners the most control over the server that their website is stored on. The server is exclusively rented by you and your website is the only one stored on the server.
4. Cloud hosting- Cloud hosting is the current buzzword of the hosting industry. It’s just a marketing term and “Cloud” can mean different things in different contexts.
5. Managed hosting-Most hosting packages you are likely to find online will be managed. Hosting companies provide technical services such as hardware and software setup and configuration, maintenance, hardware replacement, technical support, patching, updating and monitoring.

There are mainly 3 types of hosting:
1. Shared: Cheapest web hosting
This is for start or entry-level businesses or websites. Here you can imagine 1 server is divided for multiple websites using the shared services like disc space, CPU, memory
But it has the drawback of low security.
2. VPS/Cloud: moderate
When your site is popular and has a medium level of traffic.
When you don't want to use a shared or dedicated server you can choose the option of VPS Hosting
3. Dedicated: Costly Web hosting
A single large dedicated server is provided to use as like your own house, having your own space, memory, cpu.
