ICANN Organization (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) is responsible for authorizing domain names for persons and companies. The price of purchasing domain names can vary from site to site.
If we compare Domain price, we can see that at GoDaddy first year new fresh “.com” domain price is very cheap, as it is only $3.17 for the first year but renewal year will cost $15.17 each year which is expensive compared to other.
On Namecheap we can buy new fresh “.com” domain for $8.88 at first year and renewal price will be $10.98 per year.
For HostGator it will cost $12.95 every year. On the other hand, you can buy new fresh “.com” domain for $11.99 on Bluehost and on DreamHost same price.
There are different Hosting types like Dedicated Servers hosting, Share Hosting, VPS hosting, Reseller Hosting, Cloud hosting, WordPress Hosting etc.
Different Types of Hosting Plan:
Dedicated Severs Hosting
Dedicated servers hosting is a server dedicated to one website domain. Generally, offices or business organizations use this type of hosting. This type of hosting service has very high-quality facilities and performance, but it’s a bit expensive.
Shared hosting plan shares hosting spaces between multiple websites domain by the same owner. It is good for those, who owns multiple websites. We can host multiple websites in the same hosting plan on the shared hosting package.
VPS Hosting means a virtual private server. In some places, it is called VDS that means a virtual dedicated server. It is actually a dedicated private environment for scalable hosting.
Reseller hosting is a hosting plan that allows the owners to use their allotted bandwidth and hard drive space to host websites on behalf of other people. That means the reseller divide the hosting space and sell it to other people to get some profit. A fixed amount of hard drive space & bandwidth is given to the reseller account which can be divided into smaller parts later to sell by the reseller.
Cloud hosting is the system of cloud servers. We know, cloud hosting Infrastructure provides a suite of virtual/remote hosting services.
WordPress hosting is a special hosting plan to host only WordPress websites. You can host WordPress websites in other hosting plans as well.
I will prefer a shared hosting plan if you want to host multiple websites and in case of an office or organization, it is preferable to purchase the Dedicated hosting plan.
In conclusion, for buying a hosting plan you need to have a domain or purchase a new domain. If you have a domain in other market pace account, no problem you can use that domain to buy a hosting plan. You can purchase it via MasterCard or PayPal. Bitcoin is supported by some domain hosting seller companies as well.
