What is shared hosting?
Shared hosting is a hosting environment where multiple users share the same server resources to power their hosting features such as website, email, database, storage, DNS and more. This reduces the cost of hosting to make it affordable and yet maintain its reliability when resources are equally and fairly shared.
Shared hosting servers are designed to cater such a need where all users' data are isolated from one another even though they share the same server resource, this enhances the security of all shared hosting accounts.
What is Virtual Private Server?
A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a virtual machine divided from a dedicated server.
VPS runs its own copy of an operating system with root access control to manage that operating system instance, this allows administrators to have the flexibility to install any software that the OS supports. VPS resources such as CPU, memory, hard disk space and bandwidth can be clearly defined and allocated to your virtual server.
What is Dedicated Hosting?
Dedicated server is a hosting service where the entire server is exclusively dedicated to a single customer. Customers whom order our dedicated server plan have full control of the server, such as root access to the operating system and dedicated server hardware. A dedicated server will be assigned with their own CPU, memory, storage space and IP address. Therefore, performance will not be affected by the usage patterns of other customers.
Dedicated servers are used for various purposes such as acting as a gaming server, database management server, host traffic intensive websites, run huge email volumes and many more. It is highly recommended for organizations or individuals who requires consistent performance to run their mission critical IT activities day in day out.
What is the Difference between Share and Dedicated Hosting?
Shared hosting users together shared hosting resources to bring down the total cost of ownership for having a hosting service. The shared resources primarily includes CPU, memory, disk I/O and bandwidth.
All shared hosting users have the responsibility to use the shared resources fairly so that all resources can be equally distributed among its group of users. The cost of a shared hosting account is affordable to individual and organization of all sizes.
Dedicated hosting is where all hosting resources are dedicated to a single owner, it may be a single user or an entire organization. The specification of server resources such as CPU, amount of memory, bandwidth, disk storage size and so on shall be determined by its owner during the ordering of the dedicated service. Since hosting resources are dedicated, consistent high performance is guaranteed.
Besides the need for performance to go for dedicated hosting, dedicated users also have the flexibility to setup any server functionalities or install any software onto the server based on their needs.
