Explain the difference Between Dedicated hosting and shared web hosting services?


New Member
Dedicated hosting service is used when a user wants total authority and control over his website. They do not want to share resources and are looking at giving their current website a powerful and resourceful infra to carry on uninterrupted.
Shared Web Hosting means the server will be shared among many sites. All the server resources will be shared among all websites equally.


I will explain in simple language, on the shared server multiple user's websites are stored but they uses single server on the other hand Dedicated server is only for single user and whole space is only for single user, so thats why dedicated servers speed is best than shared server.

Shared hosting little technical knowledge in the field needed...

Dedicated hosting unless its fully managed you will need to know how to install manage and maintain your server.

I would start on shared hosting first.

First shared hosting is cheaper, but you would be sharing it with other people and most
probably be limited to space and CPU usage.

Dedicated is good if your site has got thousounds of users logging on all at once and would
be using more CPU resources then your shared host would allow. But you would be the only
person on the dedi server, so you can use at much cpu, space as you wish.

The bad thing is of course its alot more expensive then shared and you would need to configure
the server yourself or spend a fe hundred for a professional to do it for you..

I doubt you would ever need to upgrade to dedi with a news site.
Very well explained

Shared Host - When we talk about shared hosting, it works on a single server that hosts multiple websites. Hundreds or even thousands of websites can be hosted on a single server, which has both benefits and disadvantages.

Dedicated Hosting - Dedicated hosting in this context means having a single server. It is purely meant for you. This excludes the resource competition associated with shared hosting, resulting in more robust website performance.

With shared hosting, your website lives alongside others, which are neighboring users utilizing the same server. With dedicated hosting plans, your website has a server all to itself.
