Small business hosting is arguably the most popular of all the shared Linux and Windows plans where web hosting companies provide all of the tools required to host a domain presence for SMEs. The most cost effective small business hosting plans are those that provide a greater allocation of system resources (RAM/CPU/SSD) and a platform rich with developer tools. Small businesses need web encryption, managed network security, and low prices on high performance hardware to be successful.
Small business hosting usually is priced in the range of $6.95 to $19.95 per month depending on the plan. Any cost above this range will include entry level VPS plans with around twice the resources of shared Linux or Windows hosting accounts. Small businesses can use elastic scaling on web servers to stay online during peak hours, holiday sales, or advertising promotions. Small business hosting can include PCI compliance, SSL/TLS certificates for encryption, and advertising credits for SEO marketing.
