A dedicated hosting service, dedicated server, or managed hosting service is a type of Internet hosting in which the client leases an entire server not shared with anyone. This is more flexible than shared hosting, as organizations have full control over the server(s), including choice of operating system, hardware, etc.

In some cases a dedicated server can offer less overhead and a larger return on investment. Our dedicated servers are housed in a Canadian datacenter, providing redundant power sources, network links and HVAC/fire suppression systems. In contrast to colocation, the server hardware is owned by the provider.

Shared Hosting

A shared web hosting service or virtual hosting service refers to a web hosting service where many websites reside on one web server connected to the Internet. Each site “sits” on its own partition, or section/place on the server to keep it separate from other sites. This is generally the most economical option for hosting, as many people share the overall cost of server maintenance.
