Advantages And Disadvantages Of Shared And VPS Hosting

Two of the most common hosting plans are shared hosting and VPS (virtual private server) hosting. They are a popular choice especially among first time users and can be the right choice for you depending on your specific needs. Here is a look at the advantages and disadvantages of both of these systems. What Is Shared Hosting? Shared hosting is a system where one single server is divided among various users. This means that you do get your own disk space and database but the performance resources, such as RAM and bandwidth, are shared. What Is VPS Hosting?

I think the video suits many purposes even for those using it to explain the web-hosting world to newbies, clients, or simply for web developers to have a tongue-in-cheek laugh.
