When it comes to website hosting, you typically have 2 options:

1. Rent a shared server

2. Rent a dedicated server


Shared hosting is typically the cheaper way to host, because you are able to divide the hosting and server charges between multiple users, and the hosting company typically takes care of all of the server management and hosting support. You can think of shared hosting like an apartment building - where there are several different people paying the apartment complex for their own apartment. The apartment complex takes care of all the maintenance, repairs, and upkeep of the building, and the renter just pays for the space that they are using.


Shared hosting are usually the best choice for small web-sites and small businesses whose website have low to mid level traffic levels. The majority of all software applications are completely compatible with shared hosting, and you don't have to worry about any of the technical management and maintenance with the server - your hosting company takes care of that.


With dedicated hosting you have your own server and network connection that you don't share with anyone else. Dedicated hosting is a more expensive option, and it also requires more technical knowledge in actually managing your own server. You can think of dedicated hosting like buying your own home out in the country - you would be responsible for the home and yard upkeep and maintenance among other things.


Dedicated hosting is specifically well suited for high-level traffic, if your website is very media-heavy with photos, videos, audio etc., or if you need your own custom-built software applications to run on your server. Being on a dedicated server, you are on your own - nobody else has access to your server and you can know that your data is safe.


The downside of dedicated hosting, is that you will need to manage it - the software, backups, uptime, security patches - so to be able to run a dedicated server you either need to have the necessary skills on your own or the ability to hire someone to manage the server for you.


For the majority of website owners, a shared hosting solution is the easiest and most economical choice, but it really depends on your specific budget, skills and website requirements.
