    question about web hosting accounts types...

    guys could anyone explain, how the virtual dedicated server in a web hosting plan is actually achieved at the server level, the other two are dedicated server (well this one is self explanatory), and share hosting account(this one I guess everyone is allocated a folder in the same host for their web pages)....but if someone could elaborate how the virtual dedicated server is done, I appreciate


    thanks

    I'm no expert on this, just guessing, but it'll be done the same way as user accounts on a pc is made. Just a folder in the /usr/ directory with different permissions allowable

    ok I thought that was the way share hosting was done... then what is the difference between that and share hosting, b/c share hosting they put everyone on the same pc too

    A web server is a computer or cluster of computers that understands http requests and sends the response in the correct format, on the desired port

    A dedicated server is essentially one computer dedicated to one user

    A shared environment is where lots of clients (of the web host) are put onto one server or cluster, all sharing resources - indiscrimately

    A VPS is half way between the two - where the resources of the computer or cluster are divided equally, in predefined amounts, between the VPS accounts (ie fixed drive space, RAM, bandwidth, etc)

    For example a VPS provider may have 10 servers and allow 10 VPS accounts per server; where as a shared host may squeeze 1,000 or 10,000 or more accounts onto a cluster of 10 servers, all sharing the resources, so if one client gets greedy - the others suffer
