Hosting generally is taken as a extra expense for web site, where businesses are dependent on the internet and they share business critical data on the internet, they have to choose the best type of web hosting. When you see the best type of web hosting, Dedicated server hosting is the best solution, VPS hosting is considered the second best in the web hosting. You can think this hosting as a dedicated servers and VPS servers.

The main difference in this two type if hosting is upon the type of servers it is based on. The type of setup is different from each other. Some main differences include disk space , bandwidth and the cost factor. Virtual servers can be small for some applications , so dedicated servers are preferred. In the cases where the companies have their own IT department, or they need a very huge disk space and bandwidth. VPS hosting Vs Dedicated Hosting

When we consider the virtual servers, here the arrangement is made where multiple servers are hosted on the same server and they don’t have to share the resources in the real sense even if they are hosted on the same server. No other web site can interfere in the others web sites data and are unknown of the other web sites which are hosted. It is as good as in the dedicated environment for the space and bandwidth they are allotted.

VPS hosting is the best alternative for the dedicated server hosting, in dedicated server hosting you get the whole server with huge amount of disk pace , with the bandwidth required, good memory, highest security, independence to install the software of your liking. VPS hosting as compared to the Dedicated hosting, has less space , less bandwidth. But it has the feeling of the dedicated environment. The speed has to be compromised in Virtual Servers, as the bandwidth is divided. If we compare the management of the servers, VPS is more complex than the dedicated servers and it is less expensive.

The dedicated server can be managed by the user as well as per the proficiency. If not the administrator can manage it remotely.  If you opt for the dedicated server then the user has a complete independence on the server and has the total control over the machine. With the dedicated server you can enjoy the maximum speed, high memory, good disk space and the best performance. For the larger sites this is the only best option.

We can conclude that the Dedicated server hosting is the best web hosting solution for any site around, however it all depends on the users sites requirement and budget. If the user want the second best compared to the dedicated hosting, and is ready to manage the speed and other concerns, VPS hosting is a good option for him.
