Most of the time, when we talk about web hosting for SEO purposes, we talk about having your own dedicated server. You don’t need to have an actual server in a corner in your store, of course, though some large businesses do prefer to have control over their server in such a direct manner.
No, a dedicated server just means that, in a data farm somewhere, one complete machine is dedicated to you. This is in contrast to a shared host, which is one piece of hardware running software that creates virtual server environments, each of which hosts a site.
Web hosting companies typically offer both types of hosting. They love users that run shared hosts, because they’re more efficient with hardware. On the other hand, they love users that run dedicated servers, because they can charge more for dedicated servers than they can for spaced on a shared server.
This is, of course, because there are numerous drawbacks to using a shared server. Some of those drawbacks can have an effect on SEO, though they are largely minimal.
