What is Shared Hosting?

With Shared hosting, your website is hosted on a server shared by other websites. The advantage of this setup is the shared cost. You can pay as little as $5 to $10 per month for sharing a super server with (probably) hundreds (or thousands) of other websites.

Advantages of Shared Hosting

Shared hosting usually comes equipped with a built-in c Panel, which makes it easy to manage your site. When you share server resources with others, you’ll face some limitations. While no single account will impact another’s experience, per say, there will be maximum available CPUs, memory/RAM, and disk space. Your website will not be able to use resources beyond the maximum allowed. This may not be a big deal if your website doesn’t require a ton of space or processing power.

Disadvantages of Shared Hosting

The biggest disadvantage of a shared hosting account is that you're at the mercy of the other sites on your server. A really popular site may adversely affect the performance of your own site. On the other hand, if you're the most popular site on the server, you get to use a super server for a very low price. When most people start an online business they usually start out with a shared hosting plan to minimize costs, and they're not likely getting a ton of traffic initially.

Dedicated Web Server

When you have a dedicated web server for your website, it means you are renting one physical server from a hosting company.Dedicated server hosting is regarded as the most feature-rich hosting category for website. Websites like educational and financial institutions such as banks or government and healthcare websites are found to be supported by dedicated hosting. Its unlimited administrative controls, operational flexibility, and scalability.You can have full control (called "root" permissions in Linux) if you want it. With a dedicated server, you don't have to worry about other websites on a shared server taking up your resources and slowing your website down.

A dedicated server is generally the highest level of server you would need if your online business grows into a presence that is getting a lot of web traffic. While the costs of a dedicated server are significantly higher than shared hosting, your business will be at a point that can easily afford the necessary costs of having your own server.
