Simple Shared Hosting vs. Virtual Dedicated Server

In a simple shared hosting situation, the resources are shared among several users, but are not distributed evenly. With virtual dedicated server hosting, the resources are also shared, but are distributed evenly.
Each user of a virtual dedicated server will have the same amount of CPU, memory, and bandwidth allotted to them as every other subscriber. This allows consistency of the service and ensures that you have a chance to “own“ the same amount of resources as the next person.
Virtual server hosting is also a cheaper way of obtaining and maintaining a dedicated hosting IP address for your site, instead of renting your own private dedicated server.
