What Are Shared, Reseller, Semi-Dedicated, and Dedicated Server Hosting?

Quote:
If you are looking for a good web hosting company to get your website hosted, then you must know the factors that change the prices between the different packages. What are they? One factor is the type of hosting that the company offers. This includes shared, reseller, semi-dedicated and dedicated server hosting. In order to know which type of web hosting is best for the website of your company, you must know what the different types of hosting are.

Let us start with the shared one. Shared hosting, also known as derive host, is a type of service in which many websites are hosted on one server that is connected to the internet. This is the cheapest option because many customers pay for the maintenance of one server. The biggest disadvantage here is that there is much less you can do to configure the server to your own taste, although you do not have to worry about it if you are still a newbie.

The next type is very different from the shared one. In reseller hosting, one website is hosted by one server. The customer pays for the services of the host. The customer can then use the free bandwidth and hard disk space by selling it for a profit. The customer, now a reseller, can get other websites hosted on the free bandwidth and hard disk space he has. Web design firms, systems integrator or web developers are the typical resellers. The resellers only responsibility here is to communicate appropriately with the customers. Any technical requests such as connectivity problems and maintenance of the server is handled by the server provider.

The third type is the semi-dedicated hosting. In this type, the customer is given more privilege than any virtual accounts can offer. With it, you can make a more user-friendly interface. It also gives you the ability to run more complex scripts. Like the first two types, the server provider is still responsible to maintain the server. This type of web hosting is for websites that has a good amount of popularity around the web. It is also good for people who want to experience the robustness of a dedicated server without paying much since dedicated servers are much more expensive.

The fourth and final type is the dedicated server hosting. The is also known as managed server hosting and is a type of hosting in which the whole server is given to the customer, which means only the website of the customer will be hosted. Furthermore, the customer has the choice to change many aspects of the server such as the Operating System used and changing of the hardware. It is also the responsibility of the customer to maintain the server, although Server Administration is usually available as an add-on service. Large companies are the ones who typically get a dedicated server.

With this much knowledge, I hope that you can find the right type of web hosting for your company.

Well I tend to agree with you but in our overselling word that is impossible to feel this price difference especially for the new people to this stuff.

Personally, I believe that web hosting companies should help educate newbies about what all is involved in hosting and exactly what they are being given.

I believe web hosts which offer unlimited space and bandwidth for few dollars never say to the new (prospective) customer: "Avoid us we are oversellers".
Overselling is marketing gimmick.

I agree. Overselling is used for the marketing goals and every customer has limits (he might never know about them).

I believe that is what they can specify during pre sales conversations.

How many companies really specify that outwardly though?

I think in any case that depends on the web hosting company and on their approach to the new people. Some will learn and some might not if they do not see any profit. And i think that end users should understand that and abe ready for different scenario.

Oh geez, here it comes again. Yes, it's a marketing gimmick, but it's one that all major web hosting companies (keyword: major) have been forced to employ to remain competitive. Even my dedicated server certainly isn't "unlimited", in the end it all comes down to processing and memory, not bandwidth, at least for me, when I get a spike of 100k visitors I'm certainly not worried about bandwidth.

I any case everything depends on the size of your pages Not on number of visitors I get

Can we get back on topic here:
"What Are Shared, Reseller, Semi-Dedicated, and Dedicated Server Hosting? "

Maybe a discussion building on the information in the original post like, pros and cons of each type of hosting mentioned or how much skill you need to manage a Reseller, Semi-Dedicated and Dedicated server hosting account.

I agree. But each kind of web hosting we are trying to discuss here has own purpose. And I think that is incorrect to talk about pros and cons.
They are different.

There are definitely pros and cons in regards to comparing shared, reseller, and dedicated.

Types of dedicated server:

Quote:
Dedicated hosting service generally comes in two packages. One is with partially managed and the other with fully manager services. The first one suits those users who have in-house technical resources to manage the servers to ensure maximum on-line availability. In most cases partially managed hosting packages may include installment and customization of OS to suit customer’s requirements. The hosting team also ascertains that basic security features are put in place as per the customer’s need and monitors the server round the clock to assure that the server doesn’t go offline.

The second type of package is fully-managed hosting. This suits the companies that either don’t have an in-house IT staff or want to free up their IT staff to focus on their cores business tasks. In many cases it is observed that companies are skeptical about giving the management & hosting of their servers over to their web hosting provider. Experience shows that those who avail managed hosting services can save money and time by focusing on their core business.

While buying a server hosting plan, the buyer should find out whether the plan is un-managed server or fully managed server since an unmanaged server greatly reduces the overhead cost of a dedicated server provider and it comes with low price tags.
