Dedicated Server Hosting Vs Shared Web Hosting sets

Hosting is clearly paramount to owning a business website because without some form of server or shared hosting service, your website isn’t on the internet. If your a new owner of a website either designed by a web design company or by yourself, you’ll need to understand the different types of server hosting or shared hosting sets obtainable to be able to determine which best fits your needs.

Shared Server Hosting

If your newly designed website is simply a website with the goal to get your company online, a shared hosting package is most likely for you. The greatest advantage to a shard website hosting package is its price as (the name indicates) your website will be hosted on a shared server with those of other businesses.   All bandwidth and hardware resources of a shared server ecosystem will, ofcourse, be shared and as such, performance may be an issue at peak utilization periods.   That said, a responsible server hosting company should always use as best practice a standard for how many websites or applications will be hosted on each server in order to ensure that Quality of Service will not be an issue.

Dedicated Server Hosting

Dedicated hosting is, as the name indicates, where a server hosting company will provision a dedicated server customer with their own server consequently ensuring that all server resources will be dedicated to that customer and their requirements.   In a dedicated server ecosystem, a dedicated server customer should always have access to a control panel that will empower them with control over their server and its resources.  A dedicated server ecosystem will clearly enhance performance including load times and data query responsiveness where the customer’s website or application may require such.  Some good example of those customers requiring a dedicated server would be E-commerce websites, large website containing extensive data housed in a database, or a customer expecting high-quantity traffic.

As is the case with any web hosting or server hosting service, you should always ensure that your hosting provider offers 24/7 failover, server backups, and current maintenance upgrades.
