Many men and women who start their first Web site hire a Web designer. The Web designer usually organizes a Web hosting account on a shared server. However, as the years pass, the Web site will continue to expand. It may bring in more visitors. When more visitors come, it will be time for the Web site owner to make a big decision. Would it benefit the Web site to get a VPS hosting account, or would it benefit the Web site to get a dedicated server? A shared hosting account has many different limitations. Upgrading to a VPS account or a dedicated server account could help the Web site grow and expand. If you do not know how to compare the two types of accounts, understanding what each account is could be of great help.
