    Question is trying to see what servers business self hosted ( i.e. excluding the likes of Wix / Squarespace etc ) websites use.

    with hosting so cheap, i would not self-host any services. Most stuff is on shared hosting but my main website is on cloud server

    I think you mis understand me slightly- I count say WordPress on shared hosting as self hosted.
    What I mean by not self hosted is things like Wix / Shopify and other SaaS style solutions.

    you can run your own site from your own computer/server. Depending how big you are you can just replicate the serving capabilities of your computer to an in-house server. Its not hard.
    Is that what you mean?
