  6. 6. Wasted ad spend Risk of being de-indexed Penalties & trust siteuptime.com Pingdom.com Site24x7.com Downtime
  7. 7. New site, little budget Uptime and site speed less important Very little technical knowledge Personal or test website Traditional Shared
  8. 8. Optimize the operating system & server software Experienced staff or support capable of managing a VPS Flexibility for “quickly” scaling resources up and down Multiple sites from the same server using different platforms (e.g. WordPress, Magento, Drupal, Custom Applications, etc.) Virtual Private Server (VPS)
  9. 9. Everything from VPS Security needs which require a separate server Specific hardware requirements Your own network and/or security infrastructure High performance website You need diversity / cost savings with Internet providers Dedicated Servers
  10. 10. Single platform (e.g. WordPress) No in-house experts on server administration You want your host to optimize for your platform (e.g. WordPress). You need your site to be easily scalable You need platform level support Managed Hosting
