Shared Hosting and VPS Hosting are both types of web hosting, but they differ regarding the resources and control provided to users.
In shared hosting, a single physical server is shared by multiple websites, with each website allocated a certain amount of resources such as disk space, bandwidth, and CPU. Shared hosting is a good option for small websites or those with low traffic levels, as it is generally the most affordable type of hosting. However, users cannot control the server environment and cannot install custom software or applications.
In contrast, VPS Hosting provides users with their virtual server, which operates as a standalone environment with its operating system, resources, and software. VPS hosting allows users to customize their virtual environment and install their applications, providing them with more resources and control than shared hosting. However, VPS hosting is generally more expensive than shared hosting and may require a higher level of technical expertise to set up and manage.
