Business hosting vs dedicated server?

Hey currently we have expand business hosting but we have to upgrade it and I believe in few months we would hit the mature business hosting (max option) which is quite expensive but its easy to use we are familiar and upgrade are hassle-free.


Speaking to a godaddy rep he mentioned going to a dedicated server for our websites, and since we know how to manage things with a cpanel he mention just getting a semi managed dedicated server. I still did not understand how would this benefit us? because i see the max cpu is 4 offered, it is alot of work but we feel like soon we are running out of options on business hosting, please guide how does business hosting vs dedicated server compare?

The biggest difference between the business hosting and a dedicated server is that business hosting is still shared hosting just with more resources where as Dedicated is you have the whole box - typically with WHM / cPanel so that you can create cPanel accounts for each of your sites. 


I would ask what your business needs are that you are having to upgrade - are you getting more traffic, do you need more disk space - do you need more memory for processing?? Once these questions are answered you can better know which is the best server
