Dedicated hosting is a website hosting environment that provides the highest level of resource allocation, privacy, and control. Dedicated servers are completely isolated from one another, so users get full access to configure their server anyway they want without affecting another user or being affected by the actions of other users.
Control, privacy, and guaranteed resources are the primary benefits of both VPS hosting and Dedicated hosting. However dedicated servers are not shared with any other users, so the performance of a Dedicated server customer’s website is stable and predictable. Customers with high traffic websites are often the best fit for Dedicated hosting.
Users of VPS hosting have allocated resources just like Dedicated hosting users, however, the number of available resources on VPS servers may still not be what a website needs. For example, VPS servers often start at 2GB of RAM, whereas Dedicated servers often start with at least 4GB of RAM available. In short, Dedicated hosting allows for the same full customization and control of a VPS server, but with even more horsepower.
