The disadvantages are that anything going wrong with another site on your server could affect your site too.

- Dedicated Server: A dedicated server is a more expensive option which gives you all advantages over a shared server but also has deeper cost implications.
- Virtual Private Server: A trade off between the dedicated server and the shared server, VPS is one machine partitioned to act like multiple machine.
