It’s pretty simple. Semi dedicated is shared hosting, but more of it.
Most web hosting providers will push their customers onto VPS or dedicated servers once their site outgrows shared hosting. But this has a number of disadvantages. It’s more expensive, it takes work to set up, it’s much more difficult and costly to maintain, and it’s inflexible in the sense that it doesn’t allow much wiggle room when it comes to resource usage.
Semi dedicated solves those problems. With a semi dedicated plan, you retain access to the tools you’re familiar with (cPanel, Softaculous, PHP Version Selector, etc), and you don’t have to worry about server maintenance any more than you did before.
The difference from shared hosting is that with semi dedicated you have a much larger share of the resources of the server you’re on (think one tenth of server resources over one hundredth).

Working with Squidix was like having my own data/web team. For a small business, their services are perfect. They answered all of my questions, solved my problems quickly and efficiently, and gave me great advice [...]for the future. They are the only company that has been able to help me with Moodle effectively. I consider them now part of my team that will help me run my business successfully.
A while back, I was looking to build a searchable web database solution for a project and was referred to Squidix. I needed a company I could trust that could work individually with me. I [...]am glad I was referred to Squidix, they have been incredibly helpful to me and my company. They are very responsive and well priced and now host several sites for our company.
Our company went to Squidix looking for an extremely convenient and hassle-free web hosting service. We have been so impressed with the support and efficiency of the Squidix team. Within just an hour, our [...]entire site was migrated over to the new servers with no problems whatsoever. The constant support from the team throughout the entire process and their willingness to address any web issues immediately has allowed us to focus our energies on growing our business. We highly recommend switching over!
As a small non-profit we were lost when our website went down. We worked with our former web host for months trying to get the site back up and running. Eventually we were told a [...]new site MUST be designed at a cost of around $2,000.00. Having such a small budget we were forced to operate for over a year without a website. One day I was online and saw something about Squidix. I decided to reach out, thinking "what could it hurt". Sam at Squidix was calm and confident in his ability to repair our website problems. Skeptically I gave him the green light. In the same day he had our site up and accessible again. And for about 10% of what a new site would have cost. Immediately I decided to switch our site to the Squidix server as well. This company is the real deal.
