Shared or dedicated server?

Web hosting is a service that allows organizations and individuals to publish a website or web page on the Internet.

To make a decision, you need to know what your hosting needs are, as these services differ in terms of features and price.

Shared hosting
In a shared hosting service, several websites are hosted on a single server. In this way, the web hosting provider can reduce its costs and the services will be cheaper.

Limitations include storage and bandwidth limits, and the performance of your website will be greatly affected by the needs of the other websites, as you will be sharing the same server resources. These hosting services are ideal for websites that do not require a lot of bandwidth, disk storage or CPU consumption.

Dedicated hosting
With dedicated hosting, your website is the only website hosted on the server. Since you do not share server resources with other websites, your limit is the server’s limit.

This type of hosting is for people who plan to have a very popular website, require a lot of disk space, or run scripts that require above average CPU consumption.
