Web hosting is the basic requirement for any business to have a fair multi-marketing strategy, even if itâs not completely online-based. When it comes to your online presence, it becomes essential how you want to prioritize your expansion plans. Your expansion plans decide what infrastructure youâll need.

Unfortunately, not many start-ups entrepreneurs today have deep insights when it comes to taking a call on infra requirements. One of the topmost important decisions involves picking the kind of hosting. The two basic models available commercially are â Dedicated server hosting and Shared server hosting.

As a transition from one model to another may have disruptive impacts of seamless business operations, it is important to think well ahead of time so that you face no problems in later stages.

Letâs see what the major differences are in these two models of hosting so you can easily choose one over the other:

1. Sites Hosted on the Server

Most of us may know but itâs good to reiterate this primary difference between the two. In a shared hosting package, there are other sites that are hosted on the server along with your website while in a dedicated hosting plan, itâs yours and only yours website on the server. No physical sharing at all!

2. Security

More than anything else, security is one aspect many companies are thoughtful of when it comes to putting the valuable data on cloud. Practically seeing, either of the hosting is nothing but putting your data on a cloud based environment. In case of shared hosting it is the hosting company that installs firewalls and server security applications and programs. When it comes to dedicated servers, you are the boss. You have all the rights to install whatever you want to, double assured of your data security. No wonder, there is definitely more concerns of data security when it comes to shared resources compared to dedicated server.

3. Costs

The other major difference that could affect decision making is the cost involved. Naturally, with all the resources in your hand, dedicated servers come at significantly higher costs. In a shared hosting, server resources are shared among several users, the operating costs are thus lower as they get shared.

4. Blacklisting Of Website

A very important point here which many of you might not now! In case of shared services, you run a considerable risk of your side being blacklisted by search engines because some other side on the server your sharing has been engaging illegal internet practices such as spamming may get the entire IP address blacklisted. When it comes to dedicated server, the risk of blacklisting is solely dependent on how your site is operating and not othersâ.

5. Server Performance and Response Time

Itâs very common to see in shared hosting environment that due to high peak traffic at some hours of the day, the server could experience overall drain of resources leading to high response time to your site. A high traffic on one of the sites sharing the server could choke the bandwidth leading to slow response time and slow loading time. In case of dedicated servers, you sit on the saddle of resources!

Conclusion

No wonder a dedicated server offers more control than shared hosting model, you need to equally make sure that you have the resources and manpower to have an effective utilization of this control. Also, the kind of hosting you may want to choose will depend on your budget, server requirements and website needs. The decision has to be well thought through!
