Shared Hosting vs. Semi-Dedicated Hosting


Shared hosting is a suitable solution for most of our clients' hosting needs. However some need more than what this type of hosting has to offer. This is why we have Semi-Dedicated Hosting.

If you are running multiple websites or even a single highly popular website and these have outgrown the capabilities of our Shared Hosting in terms of: CPU/RAM use, Web Server use, MySQL or other services use or need in general better server performance, then you need the power of our Semi-Dedicated Hosting. You are on the move to get what your sites and business demand.

Semi-Dedicated hosting provides the solution. Its a higher level of hosting, which will provide you with a bounty of resources for all your sites' needs:

  • Performance on a Semi-Dedicated plan is better than Shared Hosting
  • Prices for a Semi-Dedicated server will be lower than a Virtual Private Server (VPS) or Dedicated Server solution
  • The hosting technology and tools (control panel, services and support) provided are as easy to use as the ones for Shared Hosting. No advanced technical skills are required (unlike with VPS or Dedicated Server solutions, which will require technical/administration skills).

More processing power

Semi-Dedicated Hosting offers more processing power than shared hosting. It is the perfect solution for people who do not contain the technical knowledge to manage their own server.

Lower usage limitations

CPU, RAM, Apache and MySQL limits are increased several times more than a comparable shared hosting plan.

No advanced or technical knowledge needed

While VPS or Dedicated Servers require advanced technical skills to be managed efficiently, Semi-Dedicated Hosting maintenance and monitoring is performed by our experienced technicians.

Fewer accounts on server

Semi-Dedicated Hosting features fewer accounts compared to shared hosting. Where a normal shared server will contain several hundred accounts, our Semi-Dedicated servers are capped at 25 accounts each.

More server resources

Physical machine resources are distributed on fewer accounts providing them with more CPU, RAM, Web Server and MySQL resources.

Custom modules & packages support

Unlike shared hosting you can request a custom module or software to be installed as needed.
