There are three types of servers: Dedicated, high performance dedicated, and cloud computing. The first is recommended for SMEs, for its affordable price and transactional level. The second is designed for medium enterprises and features enhanced transactional and medium traffic support. Cloud Computing is recommended for micro, small, medium and large firms with high traffic and highly transactional businesses.
An e-commerce entrepreneur must choose the appropriate server type considering, among others, availability or "uptime", transfer of information / data, level of storage, security and media type.
