Which is the best web and app hosting choice for a startup?
Should we use a web and app-hosting option? Would this be better than using traditional or cloud computing software like AWS? We're trying to take the price, space, traffic and scalability into account.
Regardless of whether you maintain a set up private company or are simply beginning, web hosting administrations will be required at some stage, except if you plan on hosting your website on an (enormous and costly) server yourself.
Web hosting stages will ordinarily offer a couple of various bundles including shared hosting and devoted servers. For new companies and independent ventures, shared hosting is the most fitting alternative as the cost stays low while keeping up better than average dependability and client administration.
Common hosting implies you will impart a server to an assortment of destinations and keeping in mind that some contend this can hinder webpage speed, for private companies with moderately basic and clean websites, this shouldn't be a noteworthy concern.
Devoted hosting alludes to leasing your very own physical server and should be saved for bigger endeavors with high traffic levels. So while this might be reasonable for your business one day, there's no compelling reason to choose a costly committed server until you're prepared.
We investigate the absolute best common web hosting administrations out there for new businesses, business visionaries and private ventures.
Try iPage if you want something quick, convenient and DIY kind of hosting. If you want space, you can try Rackspace.
I agree with Patrick. Certainly need additional information. Also you'll want to determine who is managing the service. If you're looking to handle ongoing protection, prevention, patching, monitoring and other maintenance on your own it will cost less than if you were to select a solution that is fully managed. However if you don't have the time or skill set, fully managed could be worth it. More information would help the group to provide better insight.
Without your requirement details is hard to answer your question, but choosing google's cloud platform might address all your future challenges:
1. if you need infrastructure as a service, take a look at this: https://cloud.google.com/
2. if you need a platform as a service (it is part of the cloud platform as well), take a look at this: https://cloud.google.com/products/app-engine/

However in my opinion choosing a good platform is not enough and not the most important step in an early stage. Having the right skilled tech and product dev team is much more important. They can than decide based on your special requirements the right platform to choose....
Is hard to give a good answer, as there is too little information about your requirements.
Are you asking a question about an application that you currently have and need some hosting for or are you asking as a start up with all needs from email, docs, schedule, CMS - in that case I would recommend Google Apps! + Wordpress.org for your CMS.
Without any further details about both the Website and Application it is hard to answer your question.
Ofcourse there are the primary aspects for Webhosting, like the expected number of requests, the deserved response times, specific (web)application features/requirements.
Next to that, a feature that is often not considered, is the security requirement. If you work with any sensitive information you might wanna think about double or triple tier hosting solutions.
Then there is the business aspect, do you want just hosting or a partner in hosting that can think with you and guide you as a startup with the weh/application hosting.
My answer is no, cloud computing take the load off your IT department, backups, upgrades, updates and security. In the same hand accessibility if not cloud will be limited and valuable. You n
An app can be powerful and easy to manage in gathering data. Security and flexibility are possible with right platform. What type of functions are you looking for?
you can use the old-fashioned method of documenting your requirements then submitting to multiple hosting vendors to configure and price.
Your software platform may be a consideration as you want a hosting company familiar with the technology. For example, I was with a Magento shop and we typically requested bids from Nexcess, Peeer1, and Rackpace who specialized in this.
Another consideration is the stage of company development. If prototyping / early adopter stage then you could start off with a simple commodity service like GoDaddy to concentrate on functionality and leave hosting complexity, e.g. AWS, until volume warrants it.
