Comparison Between Shared Hosting and Virtual Dedicated Servers
 

Shared Hosting Environment

In an unsecure Shared Hosting Environment all of the accounts on a server are in the same directory and can be viewed by other account holders. Since all accounts share the same operating system and applications, an error on one account will cause the entire server to be rebooted.

Virtual Dedicated ServersVDS Technology

VDS Technology divides up the disk space and network space, creating a more secure and reliable hosting environment. Each VDS has it's own operating system. If a VDS on the same physical server crashes it will not affect any of the other accounts on the server.
