    Web Hosting Can be the same as Shared Hosting.

    with VPS Hosting you have full control of the your server with a dedicated O/S and IP.

    With shared web hosting you can generally add additional domains if the hosting provider offers addon domains with the shared hosting package. With a VPS you're limited by the container's resources such as CPU, memory, disk space, and bandwidth. Keep in mind, shared hosting will have these resource limitations as well, they may just not be advertised. If your site becomes too popular and uses excessive server resources your host may force you to upgrade your package or migrate to a VPS or dedicated server.

    I would avoid Godaddy for hosting services. Their servers are heavily oversold.

    Web Hosting is the actual term for the process of hosting one or more website. Now it's categorized under a few categories.
    A) Shared Hosting: Regularly this is cheap as many others share the resources of the box (PC). You can adjust many settings as you are not in full control.
    B) Premium Shared Hosting: This is a little more expensive and allows you to have a unique IP address and even SSL to run a store.
    C) Reseller: Here is almost freedom from shared, while you have tools to sell hosting your self.
    D) VPS (Virtual Private Server): This could be managed or unmanage. A VPS gives control of the box, no other person is in your virtual enviroment, while you share the main box resouces, it works on a different level. You can have multiple IP's, and SSL's.
    E) Dedicated Server: A full blown computer all for your self. Very expensive. This is recommended if you are selling the services or running large scales web sites.
    F) Cloud Servers: A cheaper version of a dedicated server. Unless you are running a high scale website or website where you need to scale resources up and down as needed this is really something you should not be thinking of. But pretty much you can have a dedicated server for MySQl, four dedictaed to balance the apache process and so on.

    Hope this describes all the stages for you. Stay away from GoDaddy hosting. If you are looking for a quality VPS you will be spending about $40 a month ServInt, HostGator and a few others are great. Stay away from 1&1 and other trash hosting that in order to give you access to SSH you need to send a drivers license and stuff.

    Is this a joke?

    If both physical spec is the same, there's no way VPS can outperform dedicated server. With VPS you have to share resources with other users. Not to mention that your OS actually runs virtually on top of the host (there are many ways to virtualize, but this is common assumption.)

    Well I can agree and disagree. I have to say it also depends who put it together. I have seen dedicated servers from high end companies like RackSpace been outperformed by some cheap ass VPS in another part of the world. Maybe because VPS are cheaper to build that they can actually have more resources assigned than a full blown dedicated server. But why go with a dedicated when you can go to the cloud?
