    Semi Dedicated servers are those that allow less users to shared a physical machine with dedicated resources unlike that in standard VPS.

    Be semi-dedicated it's still a shared environment. There is no server resources being particulalry dedicated/guarantee to a particular account onthe server. Thus, you still face the same security risk, performance hits, etc as in the shared hosting environments.

    On the other hand, VPS offers resource guarantee so that each account can have its own guaranteed/dedicated resources. To this extend, VPS should be the one called semi-dedicated server.

    Semi dedicated server is usually a hybrid dedicated server comprising of complete dedicated hardware and often KVM virtualization. It might be a great solution but still depends on the hosting provider.

    Default Semi Dedicated Servers

    Hi Lucifer,

    Here are some features of a semi-dedicated server -

    • Semi-dedicated hosting is a common choice for medium-sized businesses that want most of the benefits of dedicated hosting, but don’t have extremely large budgets or extensive storage needs.
    • Each VPS has a limited amount of resources – but the customer can still configure the server however they like.
    • But one of the disadvantage of a semi-dedicated server is that it won't be as secure as other hosting since the server is shared there are chances of malware attacks.

    I would say be careful while selecting your host. Several times you select a host, firstly they offer you real servers but which later turn out to be faulty.

    A semi-dedicated server is a virtual machine that with Type 1 or Baremetal virtualization.
    It will enable your VM to perform similar to a physical dedicated server with those specs, since it's hypervisor runs on the same layer as the operating system or in other words, the operating system is the hypervisor.
    In addition, there are also VDS servers that use a Type 2 or OS-Based virtualisation such as KVM and XEN.
    The fact that there's an additional layer between the server and the hypervisor may adversely affect your performance.

    Our Semi Dedicated Hosting servers fill the gap between VPS Hosting and Dedicated Server Hosting.

    So if you need more resources than a VPS but aren’t quite ready to upgrade to a dedicated server yet, our Semi Dedicated Server is the answer for you.All Semi Dedicated Hosting accounts are hosted on Quad Core Intel Xeon processor web servers which are much more powerful than a Single Core or Dual Core Xeon processor web server.
