If you are looking for a Web Hosting company for your NopCommerce website then you really need to read this article, it will save you money and a lot of headaches. As you can see this website is a NopCommerce Application, we have gone through the process of finding the most suitable hosting for speed and reliability.
When you use Shared Hosting for your website then it is very similar to living in an Apartment Complex. All residents are in the same location and must share the available resources with everyone. These may include such things as the pool, parking lot, and playground. In shared hosting, all accounts must share the available resources with all the other accounts on the server. These include CPU time, memory, and disk space.
If you are using NopCommerce then this is NOT the best option as it requires at least 1 GB of RAM, most shared hosting sites only provide 256 MB and adding extra RAM can be very high, also another website can cause your website to crash or stop working.
The average uptime we were getting through the shared hosting site was 96.8%, this was recorded at https://www.pingdom.com/
VPS Hosting is similar to owning a Condo. While you still share things on the property, you are ultimately responsible for maintaining your own property and repairs inside the condo. There are also significantly fewer residents per building and assigned parking. On a Virtual Private Server, you are allotted resources that are not shared by everyone. The overall CPU time and memory are shared across all accounts on the machine, but at the same time, portions of those resources are always dedicated to each account. This allows for more power and flexibility than being on a shared account.
We have halved the costs of running the web site and increased the RAM by x4 as well as increasing the CPU speed considerably.
The site now loads twice as fast and the average uptime so far has been 100%
