Web Hosting or Own Web Server and Hosting Website On Bigrock

Own Web Server

Shared Webhosting

This is the inexpensive and fast way to bring your web application online.

  • Advantages: Cheap and you do not have to worry about anything. The necessary software is available and the provider takes over the technical support.
  • Disadvantages: You share the server’s performance with other customers, which can lead to frequent overloads or slow load times. It is also not possible to run as administrator services.

Decided Root Server

Here you get a complete server on which you can install any software. These servers are located in large data centers.

  • Advantages: Maximum performance, the resources are not shared with other customers. Likewise, you have the full flexibility and can install any server software of your choice.
  • Disadvantages: You are completely responsible for administering the server. You must manually intervene in server crashes. You must install security updates. One has to weigh whether a web hosting or web server is worthwhile for the project. For a normal web page, webhosting is sufficient, but a web server is the best solution for a web application (script) that intervenes deeply in the server and also requires more permanent resources.
