VPS Virtual Private Server – the best choice for your online business
Recently VPS or virtual private hosting has gained popularity. In VPS, the hosting server works as virtual servers for multiple clients, with each client getting his own share of the OS and other resources exclusively. The client can only access and manage his own virtual server as a dedicated server however at a much lower cost.
Why go for VPS server hosting?
Website owners show clear preference for VPS as they can control the virtual environment more than a shared server. Even for people who need dedicated server hosting but are not comfortable with the idea of managing it on their own, a VPS dedicated server becomes the obvious choice.
The benefits of VPS server hosting
All web hosting services come with their own advantages and disadvantages. Similarly, VPS also has its own benefits that have made it so popular.
A VPS dedicated server is less expensive than a dedicated server and hence suitable for small and medium websites and also for startup businesses.
Most VPS hosting plans are scalable. The websites can opt for a VPS server hosting and later on move on to cheap dedicated server.
The VPS hosting services are generally very flexible. The clients are required to pay only for the services they need. The features they will never need to use can be simply ignored.
Shared hosting has certain limitations when it comes to enjoying control over the functionalities of the server. With VPS the users can exercise more control and this makes VPS more flexible and popular.
The technical support that a client gets for shared hosting and VPS hosting are almost same although in the later case the cost involved is much less.
VPS ensures that each partition is completely isolated from the other partitions and hence absolutely safe and secured. The VPS account and the website running on it are fully protected from hackers.
The server resources are allocated to the users individually and are not shared. Each client gets his own share of bandwidth, RAM and disk space and any increase in demand from one client will never affect the others. So VPS is reliable and scalable too.
