Howto tell difference between Dedicated and Shared/VPS hosting
Forgive me if I say anything silly. I am a noob. Is it possible to tell whether a site is hosted on a shared or dedicated server other than going to the hoster?...
I am trying to find out were my site is hosted: dedicated, vps or shared. I have access to the CP and on one of the screens it says Virtual server, but I am not sure whether this is a definite sign that the server is shared/VPS.
I'd much appreciate an expert input.
Thank you all...

Well a Shared/VPS are products of a Dedicated Server. A Virtual Hosting Package means you only have access to your personal Control Panel usually :2082
If you have a reseller account you have access to :2086 but rarely root to SSH.
There is a tool to check if you have a VPS or a Dedicated Server which I'm currently unable to locate.

difference dedicated/VPSho to tell
Thanks a lot Marks, I would really appreciate it if you could find the tool that you mentioned and post it or PM it to me...
Perhaps I need to give out some more details to make things clearer. I have a plan with my host whereby they provide me with a dedicated server for the site. There are serious doubts that the site is actually on a dedicated server which come from the developers and a third party - another hosting company. They say that the site may even be hosted on a shared server. I understand, depending on how you look at he server it can be dedicated/shared or VPS. My point is that I am trying to see whether there is a way to tell if the site is hosted on a shared server or VPS or dedicated (in the true sense of the word) without going to the hoster.

Shared hosting is act like Dedicated server for a single user but is actually installed on a computer serving multiple Web sites. Another useful of VPS technology is the ability of a single customer to maintain multiple virtual servers. Finally, shared hosting means one server can share among them multiple user.
Dedicated server means that it is dedicated to the one client and it is not shared with any other client. Dedicated servers usually allow for one customer to choose what operating system is installed on it and what type of hardware are they used. Dedicated hosting server where you can find reliable options and minimize the response time for the user requests.
I also got a dedicated server from this site 9CubeHosting.com for my Internationalized business. Here they offered linux based web hosting. They provide good customer service and support.
