When it comes to web hosting, there are many different options available. Virtual Private Servers (VPS) are a powerful and popular form of hosting. Besides dedicated hosting and shared hosting, VPS combines the best of both. In this blog we are sharing 5 reasons why you should consider VPS.
What is a VPS?
Virtual Private Server – VPS is a virtual server, one of several which are created on a single physical server. The word private means that your virtual server is reserved for you and every other user is given their own space.
When you are considering VPS, it’s good to know that each user’s resources are secluded from others. This means that tasks being run on another user’s server won’t affect your website or application’s performance.
With a VPS, you have complete control over your own server. The server is operated at the needs of the user and you are free to manage your server as you like. You can configure the VPS to your needs.
The management of the VPS is completely in your own hands, but if needed, technical support is there to help you. You can decide to choose a fully managed service, or a server in which your hosting provider will only take care of the management.
Depending on your changing business needs – with VPS, scaling up and down can easily and quickly be done without any interruptions.
Since the VPS is separate from other users on the same server, they cannot access the resources dedicated to you. The security of your server is in your control. You can put up firewalls and additional security tools without worrying about the other virtual servers.
Opting for a VPS solution is much more affordable than dedicated hosting as it uses the same foundation of resource sharing. A basic VPS plan with the needed resources to launch and handle a website is reasonable on any budget.
