Shared Hosting

- a Huge server where all the websites are hosted and all the websites share the resources
The greatest advantage of electing a shared hosting option is the cost. It is much cheaper to rent space on a shared server than it is to reserve a private section of a server to support your needs.


What is VPS Hosting?

A Virtual Private Server is much like it seems: Essentially, you have a “private” server just for your needs alone. With a VPS plan you are given a piece of server real estate that is just accessible to you.

That means your resources are not shared, and you get sources for memory, hard drive, RAM, bandwidth, CPU, etc., all to yourself.

With a VPS, you’ll also have more control over how you run your website/s. A nice thing about VPS plans is that you can scale your resources as you go. That means if you’re selling Christmas decorations, you have the option of paying less out of season for reduced resources and scaling up to more as the holidays approach.

If the vps is OpenVZ then this may indeed not be true, you should state this...

Fair point to cover. While VPS you have more control over the environment, it is still shared. Even in the case of KVM, typically CPU are oversold/not dedicated. Even in the event of Virtual Dedicated Servers where NOTHING is oversold, there are still other issues that can arise. Heavy load across the board can cause issues still.

With Shared Hosting server, you get shared resources like RAM, CPU, IP, SSL etc. The performance of website is not similar in case you would receive with VPS Servers. You can only get jailed access to the server and not complete access.

While in case with VPS Hosting, you get dedicated amount of resources like RAM, CPU, SSL, IP etc. In sort, VPS server is similar to Dedicated server. You get full root or SSH access with the server. One can install third party applications on VPS server which not supported in case of Shared Hosting. Performance wise VPS is much better then Shared Servers. At the same time prices matters as Shared Hosting is much cheaper than VPS Servers.

VPS ISN'T like a dedicated though. None of the resources are TRULY dedicated to you. Users around you can still impact your performance, just less-so than a shared environment. It's at least more secure, but that's about it.

Very true! If you want a true dedicated server, there is no real "cheap" fix for that. You must pay up and get the dedicated server. However, CloudLinux does an awesome job at turning a Shared Hosting server into a "mini-VPS" for all clients on the machine. This allows users to not affect others as much with resource hogging (in fact, you can actually limit the resources to begin with.)

As skylar said not always are you on a alone network with no one else impacting you even though shared does contain many more customers or users on its not always the best as some shared are amazing like Hostgator even though i have had bad experiences with them.

I also agree with Skylar - performance on a VPS can be affected by the contention ratios on the connection not just by the allocated resources.
I have also heard great things about hostgator on their shared platform.

With shared Hosting, the resources such as CPU/memory are shared. If you site uses a lot of CPU or memory you should go with a VPS. Ofcourse, you can start with a shared hosting plan and then move to a VPS. With us, many customers do this.

Sure VPS is good for you if you care about your site.I would recommend to look at Cloud hosting it is more redundant upgrade very fast and even does not requires a reboot and has near unlimited flexibility with resources sizes

We have found it depends on the hypervisors, KVM offers full virtualization, while XEN is paravirtualized and shares some resources. If you run KVM and have dedicated CPU other users won't impact your VMs performance.

I second NetCloud's post. Depends on the provider's virtualization. Ideally you will have the resources you pay for dedicated to you on 100%.
