If you’re considering using dedicated hosting to get some kind of advantage in your SEO efforts, you might as well vanquish the thought, because according to Google’s John Mueller, dedicated web hosting doesn’t have any kind of advantage over shared hosting.

Not only do you not get any really advantage with dedicated hosting, you’ll end up spending more money. In the end, the only real advantage you’ll get is faster page speeds.

Regarding shared hosting and search rankings, Mueller said:

“Using shared hosting is perfectly fine and does not negatively affect your site in Google Search.”

You can still move to a dedicated hosting plan if you really want the extra speed it could bring to your website, but it’s best to make that decision with an informed mindset.
