WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
You have finally decided to just go ahead and start a blog. Whether it’s on sports, the news, a topic your passionate about, or you just need a place to write you know this is what you want to do. You want readers, followers, and a comments section. Maybe even a breaking news feed with your latest social media posts in a side bar.
You have so many ideas about how you want to build your website, but before you can even begin taking those steps you have an important decision to make. How are you going to host your website?
Picking a website host can be challenging and stressful because what you end up choosing to go with can have a large impact on how your website functions. If you choose the wrong kind of plan you may miss out on the opportunity for growth and exposure. You also might end up paying too much.
Pick the right kind of plan and you can be saving money, experiencing maximum growth potential, and generally be very happy with your results. For a blog, you have a lot of options for a host and what you choose may come down to the number of viewers your website typically has.
Power Surge offers multiple hosting plans for blogs. Including ones that feature WordPress hosting. They include:

How large is your blog? Is it just a one person crew running everything or do you have a staff and this is your day job alongside multiple people? This alone has a big impact on what kind of host you will choose to go with.
Shared Web Hosting For Blogs
If you are a single person that is just trying to run a blog on your own then you will likely only need a shared web host for your blog. You should rarely run into maxing out the bandwidth since it’s just you on your own and the traffic level is likely manageable.
A shared web host means that you will essentially share your server with other websites. So instead of having a server exclusively to your blog, it may also feature someone else’s blog and that one restaurant you like to go to down the street.
This helps keeps costs down making it affordable, but beware that having server neighbors can potentially impact you down the line. If one of them is getting heavy traffic then that traffic is going to affect the performance of your website as well.
For someone that owns a blog, this might not be beneficial, because a blog is meant to be active at all times so people can read what they want. If you’re dealing with server issues because someone else is having a good day in views that has to be frustrating.
If you are concerned about this happening to you then you can choose to go with another option.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers For Blogs
Want a server all to yourself so you don’t have to worry about someone else’s website harming your own? Then what you need is a dedicated server. This also works for blogs that are run by multiple people where there’s a possibility of pushing the bandwidth to its’ limits.
Having a dedicated server is great because it’s owned entirely by you which also means you have fantastic customization options for your website itself. This is where those of you that like to be more creative can really shine and let your blog or blogs shine through.
Of course, this has its own drawbacks. Prices are usually higher for those of you with dedicated servers because you do not have the other websites paying as a group to afford the server. Of course, this is a small drawback for having your own server all to yourself.
Cloud Web Hosting For Blogs
If your blog is massive and has the potential to grow even larger then a cloud based web host may be what you want. Through cloud web hosting your website is stored on multiple servers across a cloud instead of just a single physical location.
This creates flexibility which is particularly important for blogs that may need web hosting that is always available to them. If you’re a breaking news blog and something major happens you may be the first to report on it. That’s a huge opportunity, but what if your server is down and undergoing maintenance? The opportunity is lost. With cloud servers, this problem doesn’t exist.
With a cloud server, your website would merely be transferred to one of the other servers available in the cloud since the other one is currently down. While the average blog can get away with dedicated or shared hosting it’s good to have cloud hosting available as an option.
