I wanted to ask this question when I owned a shared web hosting, I heard that for a shared, my websites is hosted around 1000 other websites on the same server, is it right?

what about VPS or Dedicated Server?

I don't understand about types of these hostings. Anyone?

Actually, @OP had somewhat of a valid question here.

You're estimate of 1,000 isn't really that far off, of corse, this depends on the piece of hardware that the provider is using to offer the shared hosting. A lower end server will host about 200 websites without skipping a beat, while a high end server has the capability of hosting upwards to 1,000 websites.

Think of a shared hosting server as an apartment building. Splitting things up to resellers & direct shared customers can be explained simply as whether you're renting an entire apartment or a room in an apartment. When thinking about a virtual server, you're basically renting an entire floor of the building. And a dedicated server, you're looking at the entire building being under your control (Muahaha ?).

In the end it really depends on the hardware being utilized, and how much the hosting provider is going to oversell said system. Going with a provider such as Godaddy or Hostgator, you're going to see upwards to 2,000-3,000 websites on each server as they have been known to push the limits.

Take a look at post below

It is right. Some provider hosts a lot of site on a shared hosting server.

If you go with KVM Virtualization VPS, Then you will get dedicated resources. Nothing shared with others.

Unfortunately this is untrue. KVM is a Level 2 virtualization platform. It utilizes ballooning technology which allows for the host node to accurately oversell resources. What this means is that a host may sell upwards to 300% of the server's resources, as not all virtual nodes will be utilizing 100%. In the event that there is one machine that is utilizing more resources, KVM will balloon machines that are using less so that the one machine can use more (Reduce resources on machines using little resource to give more to the one that is using more).

In the end, Xen is a Level 1 virtualization platform that relies on hardware emulation for true virtualization and requires that a processer is capable of certian technologies. A Xen VPS will provide users with true virtualization,

It is right. Some provider hosts a lot of site on a shared hosting server.

Hey,

This information can be found on the RedHat website for one @

[URLnf="https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5/html/Virtualization/sect-Virtualization-Tips_and_tricks-Overcommitting_with_KVM.html"]https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5/html/Virtualization/sect-Virtualization-Tips_and_tricks-Overcommitting_with_KVM.html[/URLnf]

As well as the Fedora website @

[URLnf="http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/13/html/Virtualization_Guide/sect-Virtualization-Tips_and_tricks-Overcommitting_with_KVM.html"]http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/13/html/Virtualization_Guide/sect-Virtualization-Tips_and_tricks-Overcommitting_with_KVM.html[/URLnf]


--------------------


While overcommiting your processor is a typical practice (especially with newer processors which even while in a dedicated environment without virtualization while maxing out the resources you'll only ever use 60% of a CPU before running out of RAM), overcommitting RAM is another story. As a Level 1 virtualization platform Xen allows you to overcommmit CPU but not RAM, which guarantees that these resources be availible to each virtual system. However, as KVM is a Level 2 virtualization platform that relies on the Host's kernel (not bare metal), each virtual machine is run only as a process and ram being used by each VM can be moved to SWAP to allow another VM to be able to access the memory.

The number of accounts hosted on a shared server really depends on the hosting provider and the server they are using to host the accounts. On VPS and Dedicated Server, client is sole owner so he can decide how many websites he wants to host on the server. However, if the website demands higher CPU, he will have to upgrade accordingly.
