Everyone in the 21st century knows what a website is. However, many are still not exposed to web hosting and its importance even though it goes hand in hand with a website.
Web Hosting is a service provided by an IT company to enable websites to be visible on the internet. Meaning that you can publish your website on the internet only if you have a web hosting plan. Look at your website as your house and web hosting is the land your house is built on. It is not one without each other. Therefore, web hosting is compulsory if you want your website to be online.
Your website will be hosted on a physical server that can be accessed over the internet in the real world. The servers are kept securely in data centres, with a controlled environment. Maintaining a server is not easy nor cheap. That is why web hosting providers provide web hosting, security protection and more to their customers.
The most crucial role of web hosting is to provide storage space, security and uptime. Storage space is where all your website’s data such as images, emails, customers information and more are stored. Then comes security protection such as SSL and WAF to protect your website from cyber-attacks. Lastly, and most importantly, uptime. Uptime is vital for your website because it ensures a smooth customer experience. You don’t want your website to crash just because the server is down.
There are many types of web hosting that you could choose from depending on the type of website, the volume of resources your website needs, and your budget. Therefore, understanding the types of web hosting will help you choose the right one for your business.
Shared Hosting is a web hosting service where a single server hosts multiple websites. It is the most affordable web hosting, but you’ll have to share space and bandwidth with other websites on the same server. In other words, shared hosting is like renting a room in an apartment. You have other tenants residing in the remaining rooms and you have to share the common areas with them.
Shared Hosting is mainly for startup business websites, small business websites, blogs and other websites requiring small resources. If your website is new and you just want to test the waters, then you should purchase a Shared Hosting Plan.

A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a small piece of virtual server that is sliced from a single physical server. Each virtual server has its own copy of an operating system (OS) and customers have full root or administrator access to the OS. They can install almost any software that runs on that OS. VPS Hosting is more like renting an apartment unit. It is private enough, and you have control over your server.
VPS Hosting is for medium-sized businesses or for businesses that are growing. If your website traffic is starting to exceed a thousand visitors per month and is facing latency, it means that your website needs a larger RAM. If that’s the case, VPS will be perfect for you. Shinjiru provides various VPS hosting options such as Forex VPS, VPS KVM Malaysia, Linux OpenVZ and Windows KVM in Malaysia. You can enjoy higher security, privacy, flexibility and more from as low as RM 19.53 a month!
A Dedicated Server is a physical server dedicated to a single organisation. Unlike VPS or shared hosting, you’ll get a private server exclusively for your own use. It is the most powerful web hosting solution because you have complete control, administration privileged access, high privacy and super-fast loading times.
A Dedicated Server is the best option for you if you think that your website has the potential to expand and gain high traffic, if you want the best security and if you want a better website performance. You’ll also have more control over your server compared to other hosting plans. Shinjiru provides fully managed Linux and Windows Dedicated Server Hosting in Malaysia. You can get your Dedicated Server from as low as RM 269.90 a month.
