I looked up both of these on Wikipedia. I am completely confused...
Why would I (or anyone) need a VPS or dedicated server? What's the difference between those and "reseller" hosting?
So if I understand correctly..
Reseller hosting is a bunch of people getting a piece of a server...
VPS is a smaller portion of people on one server?
And dedicated is your personal own server?
Why would you need your own server? Is this just for huge sites like FB or YouTube?
Also, I am reading that you can run your own operating system on those... WTF?
I am totally confused right now. Run your own operating system on your hosting account as if it was another computer?? I don't get it.
Maybe someone can explain this in English to me, thanks
