What is the differences between unique name server and dedicated server hosting?


There is a great difference between dedicated hosting and unique name server. In a dedicated hosting site you will get many facilities. First you will get maximum space on your hardware if you use a dedicated hosting. You can use all data of a machine or server if you use a dedicated hosting. But if you use a server which is unique name you can share your data with the other people which is given to your unique name. so there is less access possibility of less people. So you should use a dedicated hosting site from a best dedicated hosting company to get a better service.
