    Web hosting where a single physical server hosts multiple sites. Many users utilize the resources on a single server, which keeps the costs low. Users each get a section of a server in which they can host their website files. Shared servers can hosts hundreds of users.

    Multiple users will be hosted on the same server.  For general websites this is fine but if you are wanting something more intensive that uses more server resources you may want a dedicated server.  Whats the context for the usage?  Is it a website or a minecraft server etc?

    This is when a web host company puts multiple clients on the same server. This is less expensive than having a dedicated server, but has somewhat lower performance because the server is performing services for all the hosted websites.
