    Is dedicated server hosting expensive?

    I am often look for into VPS and shared hosting plans, sometimes I check reseller hosting because it is better than shared hosting while keeping some features from VPS plans, but the hosting plan attracted me more to have in the future is a dedicated servers with best features as 32GB of RAM, 8CPUs, 150 GB SSD..but for those, it is a bit more expensive for me. its pricing is around from $80 to $150/ month and not ready to get it now. What do you think dedicated server hosting is expensive? but its worth getting for your websites?

    VPS are in most of case the best hosting solution, with better prices and a good ratio CPU/RAM/Storage.
    If you use a control panel like cPanel or Plesk, a dedicated server will provide better CPU and storage performances, but you will never use all the memory available, probably less than 4GB.
    The main feature of dedicated servers is the ability to create your own VPS, with dedicated resources.

    To get started, there are some good dedicated servers on soyoustart like this one : https://www.soyoustart.com/us/offers/143sys13.xml
    In my opinion, a XEON-E3 with 16GB RAM and 3x120GB SSD is a good server size for web hosting.

    For start you can rent some reseller package , but they must have ssd drive if you have some money i recommend you order KVM VPS with ssd drive and install some control panel, if you need FREE -> VestaCP , if something cheap DirectAdmin or ISPmanager5 .

    OP is not asking for reseller or VPS, he just want to know if it's a good choice to choose a dedicated server, even if it's more expensive.

    You have to be aware that on the top of the monthly/year dedicated server price, you have all the licenses necessary to run the server, and licenses for dedi servers are very expensive. VPS is in a shared environment, however and in some cases a good VPS is better than a weak/poor dedicated server. So check your budget and make a good decision :-)

    Plesk Onyx license is free on all OVH dedicated servers, and Web Pro for 30 domains cost only $9/mo with Soyoustart.
    Only cPanel cost more than $40/mo

    I don't think a dedicated server plan with pricing range from $60 to $150 / month is expensive, for instance, if you have a website with good traffic and genertaing around $50 per day then you could earn $1500 / month and its worth buying a dedicated server with just $150/ month to serve your visitors visit your website better and help website to grow faster.

    i think the different between vps and dedicated server is very big. I know dedicated server has more fast and the best think is you know the server is only your.

    You dont not sharare nothing with are person.

    A good server dependes where you looking for. OVH is cheap but assistance isn't the best

    There is no relation between your website traffic, loading speed and revenues.
    You can pay $150/mo for your dedicated server but it doesn't mean your website will load faster.

    I manage some websites with high-traffic and the most part are running on VPS which cost less than $40/mo.

    And with dedicated servers, higher-price doesn't mean better performances, bandwidth, network and components are not the same on all providers.

    There are multiple reasons dedicated servers are more expensive the VPS or Reseller plans.

    Look at this way and to keep it easy, I am going to use very basic numbers.

    Lets say a data center can hold a 100 racks of servers (most data centers actually hold 1000s of racks, but the math still works)
    Each Rack of server on average will hold 40 servers.
    So each server has a fixed cost already associated with it. Physical space in the data center and power the server uses, plus the cost to buy the hardware of that server
    Now a dedicated server can only be assigned to one client.
    So if you divide that same server into VPSes, say even very basic of 4 users. Now those 4 users are dividing those fixed costs at 25% each.
    Now even more basic, the same server might hold 10 resellers, so now each reseller is responsible for 10% of those fixed costs.

    In the real world, some VPSes might hold 25+ on a single server and resellers can easily be in the 100s.

    Thats why there is such a huge cost difference between all the offerings
