What is shared hosting and dedicated hosting?
With shared hosting
one website shares all server resources with other customers.
With dedicated hosting
- sometimes called dedicated server or managed hosting -
the customer gets an entire server which is not shared with anyone else.
The customer has full control over the dedicated server (root access) and usually
can choose a hosting plan regulated by his needs when it comes to hardware, operating system
and things like this. Most hosting providers offer server administration as an add-on service.
