Difference between Shared and Dedicated Web Hosting?

If you ever wanted to test the waters and put your own website up on the Internet, start with shared hosting and your own domain - its the way to go.

What is dedicated hosting?

Dedicated hosting is the opposite of shared hosting. Dedicated hosting is about you being in total control of the server and what goes on the server. You decide whether to host 1 site or 10 of your sites.

Dedicated hosting allows you to tailor database, email and software applications to your desire - so it works the way you want it to. This is powerful.

Dedicated hosting is ideal for websites with high traffic and large businesses who want complete control over the server so they can fine tune for special shopping cart software, etc.

Another benefit of dedicated hosting is you can resell the space/bandwidth to people who want to setup their own website.

Unlike shared hosting, dedicated hosting will cost considerably more, something like $50 month for a simple dedicated server.

If your website is critical to your business, then I'd highly recommend dedicated hosting. Go Back
