What is the difference between Shared hosting, VPS Hosting and Dedicated Hosting?

Here is a guide we we have created about our hosting plans and how they compare to each other.

Shared Hosting Comparison

Shared Hosting Comparison

Shared Hosting is very similar to living in an Apartment Complex. All residents are in the same location and must share the available resources with everyone. These may include such things as the pool, parking lot, and playground. In shared hosting, all accounts must share the available resources with all the other accounts on the server. These include CPU, memory, and disk space.

 

VPS Hosting Comparison

VPS Hosting Comparison

VPS Hosting is similar to owning a Condo. While you still share things on the property, you are ultimately responsible for maintaining your own property and repairs inside the condo. There is also significantly fewer residents per building and assigned parking. On a Virtual Private Server, you are assigned resources that are not shared by everyone. The overall CPU and memory are shared across all accounts on the machine, but at the same time, portions of those resources are always dedicated to each account. This allows for more power and flexibility than being on a shared account.

 

Dedicated Hosting Comparison

Dedicated Hosting Comparison

Dedicated hosting provides set resource limits not shared resources. More control and access.
Dedicated Hosting can be compared to owning a house. You are allowed and have access to all resources available on the machine. No one Else’s account resides on the machine (your house) and would not be capable of tapping into your resources.
