    Basically with shared hosting you share the machine with other companies/entities. You each have a directory that's all yours but the system resources, CPU, HDD etc, are shared. Normally you share an IP range as well.

    Dedicated hosting typically costs more because your paying for use of the whole machine by yourself. The entire CPU, HDD etc is all yours and may or may not include a static IP address, depending on the package you pay for.

    Shared hosting is sufficient for 90% of what a typical user will do. Companies and more specialized/dedicated content and content creators, prefer the additional resources and usually bandwidth of dedicated hosting.

    Re: Reccomend a Dedicated Web Host Service?

    Thanks guys for explanation of dedicated web hosting. i was thinking to host my website at home. But i think if i get good deal on dedicated services I may switch to them. i have to workout which is cheaper dedicated or home hosting.
    You came empty handed, that is how you shall leave. Whatever you claim as yours today, belonged to someone else yesterday, will be someone else's tomorrow.

    Yeah, I'm in a similar fix. I have hardware knowledge but otherwise no knowledge whatsoever about setting up, administering, and securing a webspace at home. That said, I do plan to look at the cost of a line and hardware, since in general I don't like to depend on others for services-- especially if they don't do their business well. The day when hosting from home becomes easy and accessible-- that will be when the internet revolution will really start. Yeah, right now we have blogs and social networking, shared hosting. At the end of the day, though, if someone doesn't like your stuff, it will go out. When you're on your own line and hardware is when you're really free.

    That day is already here. However the problem is not in setting up a home server, but in the speed of the internet connection. Unless you have a leased line at home (VERY unlikely) then your up connection speed becomes the bottleneck as it will be much slower than your download speed. Hosting your site at home will mean your site will be extremely slow especially when more than 2 people try to access it.

    It's not really a better plan anyway (to say the least), since now you are dependent on your electricity company, your ISP, and your skills in adminstering a webserver as well as your availability to fix any problems immediately. I prefer to spend £30 a year and not have any of those disadvantages.

    It already is easy to do, the problem is the cost of the electricity and ADSL internet connections which provide a much faster download than upload speed, making the end user experience painfully slow. I run a Web server for toasting bits and peaces before uploading them to my shared hosting provider(mainly fixing XHTML errors) and a subversion server for data storage. In the latter case fast downloads are actually an advantage as it makes remote commits rilly fast, but remote checkouts can be slow.
