    VPS Hosting

    A Virtual Private Server is much like it seems: Essentially, you have a “private” server just for your needs alone. With a VPS plan you are given a piece of server real estate that is just accessible to you.

    That means your resources are not shared, and you get sources for memory, hard drive, RAM, bandwidth, CPU, etc., all to yourself.

    Shared Hosting

    Shared servers are quite large and powerful because their main function is to be a communal space used by a number of different clients.

    The number of accounts or sites on each server varies and really depends on how busy a server is or what kind of hardware it is supported by.

    Each user on a shared server has access to a large store of basic reserves that are acquired on-demand as a user needs more space, RAM, bandwidth, or other resources of some kind.

    The key differences which set VPS hosting apart from shared hosting are not a factor for those who wish to host a low-to-moderate traffic website and are happy with the level of control offered by a web hosting control panel like cPanel or Plesk. These individuals will prefer Shared Hosting for its perceived simplicity and ease of use: they generally do not have Linux system administration experience and they are not interested in picking up any.

    The fact is "You get what you pay for". And also all its depend on your needs and your site number of visitors, the more site traffic the more server consumption you'll get.

    Most small sites have no need for their own virtual server.
