Benefits Of Virtual Private Server(VPS) Web Hosting
The seemingly big gap between high-budget dedicated hosting, and low-budget shared hosting can be filled by Virtual Private Servers (or VPS). VPS hosting bridges the gap between the two. The biggest advantage you gain with using VPS hosting is cost. Dedicated hosting is a lot more expensive to purchase than shared hosting.
Shared hosting was the most commonly used option for cheap hosting before VPS came into the picture. Shared hosting basically is a host that hosts multiple websites on a single server. The cost of the hosting is split up between all of the websites, which brings prices per website down. Naturally a dedicated server for dedicated hosting will cost a lot more since the price for the server is paid by only one website.
Shared hosting does come with some disadvantages though. Most are limited in space, and rely on the other websites on the server to remain up.
Virtual Private Servers give the same advantages a dedicated server do without the high cost. Essentially with a VPS you receive the reliability of having a server to yourself, but are still sharing the server physically with others. Most VPS hosts also offer services to help back-up all your files. As your website grows you’ll usually be able to upgrade your hosting package accordingly.
VPS when compared to shared hosting has many advantages over it. With a VPS host you have complete security and privacy over your files since no one else on the server is able to access them. Your service will never be affected by others on the server, and you’ll be isolated from the rest of the server. It’s almost like you rent out a part of a server just for your own use. You’ll also have complete access to the server, being able to change the hosting software and root files.
If you want your business to succeed it’s almost mandatory you establish your business online with a website. VPS hosting is perfect for any individual who wants to own a reliable website, or for an up-and-coming small business owner who wants to sell their product online.
VPS hosting is now available at low, affordable rates, and is recommended over both dedicated and shared hosting.No Comments yet.
