Web Hosting Types compared to Transportation and Housing. A simplified way to explain the differences between shared hosting, VPS hosting and dedicated server hosting.
As an analogy, if you own a car (in this case a dedicated server), you have to take care of everything (securing your car, insurance, adding fuel, periodic planned and planned maintenance, deal with unplanned issues, …). For your dedicated server, you have the same things (securing the server, patching, …) unless if you subscribe to a managed service package where your professional service provider takes care of these aspects.
If you are in a shared or vps environments, some of the aspects are taken care of by the provider (the shared resources between different customers).
Anything you can have in life is associated with specific risks. Dedicated servers are not the exception! You have to evaluate you needs and find the perfect deals that fit them (server performance and reliability, server pricing and location, provider reputation, accreditation & certifications, service quality, …).
