Many new starters of online marketing have been asking one question: which one should I use? Shared hosting or VPS hosting? To clarify this, one must know the main differences between these two.
Shared Hosting is the cheapest hosting solution among the hosting options available. For a few bucks per month, you get a web-based configuration software such as cPanel that is very user-friendly. Even if you do not know how to install Word Press manually, you can easily set up one with just a few mouse clicks using fantastico or simple script, which is some built-in software in cPanel. The down side of shared hosting is that, there is always a limit for hardware resources, stay aways from those marketing hypes about “unlimited disk space, “unlimited bandwidth” and so on.
On the other hand, VPS hosting offers more hardware resources compared to shared hosting, but it tends to be more expensive due to the cost of hardware resources you get. Sometimes you need to have some technical knowledge on how to maintain your VPS also.
