Shared hosting is the most common and least expensive hosting option. Your website will be hosted on a server along with other websites. Your website shares the resources of the server (CPU, memory and hard drive space) with other customers. This hosting is geared towards websites that have low to moderate traffic levels. Your website performance and security may be affected by other customers on the same server.
A shared server is like using public transportation. You share the same space as other customers, have no control of vehicle but can travel inexpensively.
A virtual private server (VPS) is your own slice of a dedicated server. A VPS get it’s own server resources (CPU, memory and hard drive space) which is dedicated for your use only. The cost of a VPS is more than shared hosting but far less than a dedicated server. The performance of your VPS is not affected by other users on the same server and is far more secure than shared hosting. You are able to configure your VPS to your specific needs including choice of operating system, memory, hard drive space and software to be installed. You can also administer the server yourself since you will be provided with root/remote access.. If you need to control your hosting environment, store confidential data or if your website needs higher performance than consider a VPS.
A shared server is like renting a car. You are able to go anywhere you like and store anything you want in the vehicle. You are also more secure in the rental since you will not be riding with strangers and you will reach your destination faster than using public transportation since you are in complete control of the vehicle.
A dedicated server is your own physical server with 100% of it’s resources dedicated for your use. Like a VPS, a dedicated server get it’s own server resources (CPU, memory and hard drive space). A dedicated server is the most expensive hosting option and is geared towards high traffic websites or when tight security is necessary. The performance of your dedicated server is not affected by other users. You are able to configure your dedicated server to your specific needs including choice of hardware, operating system, memory, hard drive space and software to be installed. You can also administer the server yourself since you will be provided with root/remote access. If you need to control your hosting environment, store confidential data or if your website needs the highest performance possible than consider a VPS.
A dedicated server is like owning your own private jet. You are able to go anywhere you like and use it for any possible purpose. A jet, like a dedicated server, is the most secure and fastest option.
