VPS or dedicated server ?

Hi all,

Do you believe it's worth getting a VPS once a shared server is not enough anymore, or is it better to go for a dedicated server straight away ? What are the disadvantages of Virtual Private Servers vs Dedicated servers ?
Also, what do you think about Managed dedicated servers ? Is is worth the premium ?

Re: VPS or dedicated server ?

The difference between vps and dedicated is that with dedicated you are the only person with files on the server. VPS is a virtualization environment where everyone gets root access inside a virtual machine, but there are multiple people with these VMs on one given physical server. If you are comfortable managing your sites in a VPS as root, then it won't be any more difficult to manage them on a dedicated server.

If you are new in the VPS server than you don't have the much knowledge to how to use it...B,coz of that some people can use your VPS server.

Do you know of any good online resource in order to learn how to secure VPS hosting so that your VPS server doesn't get hacked by others using the same server ?
