What is the difference between a dedicated server and a shared hosting plan?

Dedicated servers and shared hosting packages are solutions that serve completely different purposes. Here is a brief comparison:

Dedicated server

  • You are the server’s only user.
  • Resources are dedicated.
  • It is fully configurable.
  • You are free to choose the programming language and software.
  • It is suitable for most uses.

Shared hosting plans

  • Several customers share a server environment.
  • Resources are shared between users.
  • It is pre-configured to host websites.
  • Users are limited to a few programming languages and software (PHP, MySQL, HTML).
  • It is perfect for hosting a medium-sized website that does not experience traffic spikes.

 

What is the difference between a dedicated server and a VPS?

The technical aspects of a dedicated server and VPS are:

  • A dedicated server is a physical server with no virtual layer or special configuration.
  • A VPS is a virtual private server created from a physical server, with virtualisation software installed on it.

A dedicated server provides raw computing resources, such as CPU and RAM, a large amount of disk space, and total freedom in how you use and configure your machine. It is suitable for all web projects: business hosting for high-traffic websites, cloud computing, and even complex infrastructures with multiple servers.

A VPS (virtual private server) offers virtual resources that can be increased on demand. It is designed to deliver performance that fits its user’s requirements as closely as possible, with the ability to track project progress by adding resources for further flexibility. This makes it a perfect hosting platform for medium-sized websites, applications and a variety of services.

Both solutions are available with different operating systems, and the most popular Windows and Linux distributions. You can also order your server with a cPanel or Plesk control panel pre-installed.

What is a dedicated server?

A dedicated server, also referred to as a bare-metal server, is a physical server offered without an application or software layer. You get a machine that is completely dedicated to your use, and it is fully customisable. You can install your choice of operating system, and create the perfect environment for your project. Depending on the resource configuration you have chosen, it can be used for hosting e-commerce websites, creating a fleet of virtual servers, designing an architecture dedicated to big data or machine learning, and much more.

Which dedicated server should I choose?

Your dedicated server must meet specific technical specifications, which you determine to fit your needs. Resource requirements are often the main determining factor for what you choose. This means you need to identify which resource type is most important for your project — between processor performance, RAM and storage technology. The bandwidth should also be taken into account, as it determines your server’s capacity to process the transfers required for your web applications and services to work. It also influences the speed at which data can be transferred. Location is another factor to consider for your dedicated server. If your website is located far from your end users, they may experience high latency. You can also select the best product for your needs based on the varying range of features offered in each server range, as well as their included components.
