Shared Hosting

Shared hosting is the most popular option for people building their first website.

Pros

  • It’s cheap. Some hosting companies charge as little as $3.95 a month.
  • It’s beginner-friendly. It’s easy to get started with shared hosting compared to other hosting options.
  • Security, upgrades, and maintenance of the server are managed for you.

Cons

  • It can be slow. With so many other websites running on the same server, your page load times may suffer.
  • Security isn’t guaranteed. You don’t know who else is using the same server, so if one site has a memory leak or is hacked, your site could be affected.
  • Lack of server control and performance. 

Price

Shared hosting can range in price from $3.95 to $9.95 per month depending on the web host you choose.

Best suited 

Small websites with minimal traffic such as blogs and personal sites.

 

Virtual Private Server (VPS) Hosting

VPS hosting is similar to shared hosting in that your website shares a server with other sites; however, there are fewer sites sharing space and resources.

Pros

  • More affordable than a dedicated server.
  • More secure.
  • It’s fast. You are allocated more resources compared to shared hosting.
  • It’s scalable. A VPS can grow with your site as your server needs increase over time.

Cons

  • Some server companies oversell their servers, hoping that every site currently using a particular server won’t have a peak traffic day.
  • More expensive than shared hosting.
  • If you choose an unmanaged VPS, it may be difficult to configure, taking longer to get your website up and running.

Price

VPS hosting can range in price from $20 to $100 per month depending on the web host you choose.

Best suited 

If shared hosting is too basic for your needs and you want dedicated resources and greater control over your hosting environment, a VPS may be the best option for you.

You said some companies charges 3.95 dollars but that's not the case some companies even charge 1 dollar per month.

He is just referring to the average of most hosting sites.

Brother even if he is referring to the average cost of hosting companies, then it's still not correct as on average companies charge 2 to 3 dollars.
