What is VPS Hosting?

VPS hosting is a Virtual Private Server, and is a virtualized server. A VPS hosting environment mimics a dedicated server within a shared hosting environment. It's technically both shared hosting and dedicated hosting.

VPS is one of several types of web hosting accounts you can choose from to host your website online. To have a website on the internet, you need to have your website files on a web server.

Setting up and managing a server can not only be expensive, but difficult too. Purchasing web hosting allows someone to rent space on a web server, making it easier for the average person to have host a website online because all they need to do is upload their site files (no server setup is needed on their part).

Why is VPS Hosting different than Shared and Dedicated?

With our dedicated servers, you rent an entire server. This is optimal for people that have very high traffic to their websites or need to setup their server in a very specific way. Not everyone needs to have a fully dedicated web server however. If you're just getting started with your website, you can save quite a bit of money if you rent a small portion of the server. Shared hosting is when you share a portion of the server with other users rather than rent an entire server to yourself.

If you are considering a dedicated server and are unsure if it is right for you, perhaps you will need to get VPS hosting.

Advantages of VPS

Increase Reliability

Shared hosting is like a stack of dominos. One bad user can make the entire server come crashing down. Shared web hosting will soon be a thing of the past. With many hosting companies overselling their servers and piling on as many as thousands of customers on to the same web server, the reliability of their services will soon diminish. When hosting on a shared server, your website’s uptime and performance can be impacted by other websites on the same server.

Gain Total Control of the Server

With root access, you have complete control over the server environment to tweak it precisely for your needs. If you need a custom software package installed or port opened, you can do so without having to wait for your hosting provider to support it. Shared web servers are typically optimized for security and performance as best as possible, and this means that there are many popular software packages that are not support due to their security limitations.

Increase Efficiency on a Green Platform

Green hosting and the use of eco-friendly technologies has been gaining a lot of popularity over the past few years. It is important to do your part to make sure your carbon footprint is as little as possible. VPS and Hybrid Server Hosting can help you achieve this.

Instantly Scale Resources

For someone who is starting a new website with hopes of growing it into something much larger, being able to scale your hosting resources without any downtime or technical issues is very important. When you host with a VPS, your environment is hosted within what is called a container. This container is allocated a certain amount of resources depending on the package you purchased. The great thing about how these containers work is that they can easily and quickly be allocated more or less resources as you need them.
