Hosting: Dedicated vs. Shared

I am looking at either DiscountASP or 1and1.  My scenario is one installation/one DB with single site but many domain names pointing to the main site.  All of these domains will have the same content with the exception of some personalization on a couple modules I have created which will get the URL to determine info to be used in the module.

My question is which scenario would be better here seeing that the number of domains pointing to the main IP address if dedicated or root folder if shared would be better?

Thank you in advance for any input here.

Hi Jon,

The number of domains really isn't an issue here unless the shared hosting provider charges per domain. The real issues that you need to take into consideration are 1) the amount of traffic your site will generate and 2) your own requirements for uptime if another site were to crash the shared server.

If you know your site is going to get a lot (I know that's relative) of traffic or you are not comfortable with the possibility of your site being down due to a crash caused by another site, you should go with dedicated hosting.

HTH,

Thank you Joe.  I have looked at your site as well and would be interested in your hosting package and what you could possibly do for us.  Should I contact you via your website for custom hosting package?

Thanks for the quick reply.
