SO i am in search of a cheap but useful website host .In this process I have encountered the terms shared and dedicated servers . And most of time suggestion is made to avoid shared servers . But why ? What are the disadvantages of shared server compared to dedicated server ? Thanks .

Advantages of a dedicated server over a shared server: 1. Basically you can install whatever applications you want. 2. You will have your own resources 3. You will get your own IP address However, take note that with these advantages you will need a lot of work to do and advance knowledge about webservers since you will do all the maintenance, security, patch, etc. on the server. Also with price comparison, a dedicated server maybe 10 times or more than a shared server
