Recommend 2 hosting servers for SME B2B website - I use them in the past years

To build a B2B website for SME companies, the first step is to choose a domain name, and the second step is to purchase a website server; foreign website servers are a kind of infrastructure. Generally, you can buy unlimited websites for 5-10 dollars per month, or unlimited The flow of the server; this article introduces two cost-effective web server VPS and virtual host I am using.

Web servers are roughly divided into two categories:

  • Shared hosting is similar to a shared house. Others have provided various supporting services, and you can just settle in and use it yourself;
  • VPS/Cloud servers (represented by GOOGLE CLOUD, Amazon AES) and various small and medium-sized VPS (virtual private server) service providers, this kind of website servers need their own server management capabilities.

Recommend VPS/Cloud server for foreign trade website

The price of Google Cloud Server is relatively high, and the billing method is more complicated. It is not my first choice when doing ordinary foreign trade websites. In the past few years, I chose a VPS service provider for small and medium customers and bought a low-profile independent IP server. , And then put all the websites in the company on this server.

DigitalOcean is the independent server manufacturer I chose. It pays by the hour and pays for as long as it takes. There are 13 regional servers around the world to choose from. I chose its $5 package:

Memory

vCPU

sTransfer

SSD Disk

$/MO

1GB

1vCPU

1TB

25GB

$5

2GB

1vCPU

2TB

50GB

$10

note:

  1. 1
    If you plan to use a website construction system such as WordPress that takes up more resources, you can choose a $10 package, which is relatively more worry-free
  2. 2
    The use of VPS is with independent IP, and can build unlimited websites, some website construction companies do this;
  3. 3
    It is best to have some Linux system skills such as Ubuntu Linux when using VPS, otherwise the server may fail and you may have to ask for external expert;

Recommended web hosting for foreign trade websites

Although I have used the Linux system for more than 10 years, I have become less interested in doing things related to server management. Therefore, when I was doing a foreign trade b2b stand-alone site this year, I began to choose a stable virtual host; the virtual host is generally Use discount codes, pay annually, and the price is very low.

FastComet is the virtual host manufacturer I use now. It has good stability and timely service. It provides a 30-day no-reason refund guarantee; choose its highest configuration, the original price is 19.95USD per month, and the coupon code is used to discount 5.95USD per month , I pay every two years, very cost-effective.

  1. 1
    The minimum package is 2.95/mo: This kind of website can only be built, which is suitable for very stingy companies or individuals who build websites and play tickets;
  2. 2
    Medium configuration package 4.45/mo: This kind of website can be built infinitely, but there is no plug-in support such as APC/Opcache which is very useful for wordpress acceleration;
  3. 3
    Top configuration package 5.95/mo: Provides a larger capacity than the medium configuration, provides PHP plug-in support such as APC/Opcache, and provides higher resource priority, that is, you do not be a "neighbor" with low-profile websites;

"Which one is more suitable for me?"

  1. 1
    If you are a factory or foreign trade company and just want to build your own foreign trade company official website, then I recommend buying FastComet virtual host;
  2. 2
    If you are a website building company and have the technical ability to master Linux servers, you can choose to purchase DigitalOcean's VPS servers;
  3. 3
    If you want to deploy your own CRM, ERP and other online information systems, not just a foreign trade website, then it is recommended to contact Mr.Gu or other consultants to provide customized solutions.
