Confused between Shared Hosting, Premium Hosting and VPS Hosting!

Most people gets confused among these hosting plans and many of them have inquired about it. Some even asked if you have everything unlimited in shared hosting then why do we require premium hosting and VPS. The answer to this question is in the table below which describes what actually happens in shared hosting, premium hosting and VPS hosting, but before that let us see what actually is the definition of all these hosting plans.

Shared Hosting:

A shared web hosting  refers to a web hosting service where many websites reside on one web server. Each site “sits” on its own partition to keep it separate from other sites. This is generally the most economical option for hosting, as many people share the overall cost of server maintenance.

Premium Hosting:

It refers to web hosting service where limited users are allowed on one server and powerful premium servers are used in this hosting service and it is somewhat expensive when compared to shared hosting.

VPS Hosting:

Virtual Private Server web hosting is probably the most flexible and versatile, web hosting solution available today. It can be used for practically any web hosting purpose that you think of  but it is expensive when compared to shared hosting and premium hosting. It is well on its way to becoming the most widely used web hosting service, although the majority of people still consider the shared hosting accounts as the best hosting service to go with. This, however, is quite an outdated opinion, considering the fact that the VPS hosting was a subject to a constant development during the past several years.
