VPS (virtual private server) – The server resources are available exclusively for your website. It’s like having your own server, hence, giving you the perfect speed.
Cloud – You can have multiple servers store your files and the one with the most resources available when someone visits, hosts it. This way, you have the access to fast servers.
Managed – This way, you let a host handle your website’s requirement and hence, optimize the resources available for you.
