Shared vs VPS Hosting

Common shared hosting and Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting are services offered by web hosting providers. The main difference between VPS and shared hosting is that in the former several users and websites use the same server and required resources and in VPS hosting, one physical server is virtually partitioned into several private servers that can be individually managed by users.

Shared hosting

Shared hosting is configured on a physical server with Windows or Linux based OS. Such server has several users and websites assigned to it. These users share server's resources without any restrictions or priority to certain users. Nowadays many hosting providers offer unlimited server space – it means that users can store unlimited number of files, except media files. In shared hosting all necessary resources, for instance memory, storage space, processor utilization, bandwidth and applications are shared by all users.

For example, users ascribed to particular web server share MS SQL Server, My SQL Server, IIS web server, Apache web server and Cpanel application. Shared hosting is the least expensive web hosting option available.

VPS hosting

VPS is a partition of one physical server equipped with base operating server. It is configured as a separate server with the help of virtualization. Each virtual private server located in the physical server can run different operating systems according to user's needs and requirements. The user has administrator access rights to the virtual server and can use it as an individual or dedicated server.

In VPS hosting almost all resources are shared by users, except for processor utilization. When you order VPS hosting you can request the hard disk space or memory size according to your needs. These resources will be assigned to individual VPS accounts.

VPS allows more flexibility and power than shared hosting as it has no limitations of dedicated resources. Besides, users have administrator access rights to VPS hosting and can customize and configure their accounts.
