Virtual Private Servers are much more versatile and powerful than a shared hosting. It offers many of the capabilities and features of a dedicated server including administrator or root access and dedicated IP address. On a shared server, you rely on the performance of the platform provided but when you choose VPS you select a configuration best suited for your applications requirements and growth powerful and versatile.
Mostly VPS are fueled by the latest generation Intel processors and offer unmetered bandwidth to handle anything your business throws their way its scalable enough to handle your demands as your business grows and with 99.9 percent guaranteed uptime you don’t have to worry about your site being down. A virtual private server allows you to host sites such as storefront, ecommerce, content media and software applications like portal extranet, collaborative solutions, wiki, CRM. With ease you can also run multiple websites.
Unlike shared hosting, VPS hosting makes it possible to isolate multiple applications from one another within the same container while this VPS container shares physical resources infrastructure with other containers its resources are dedicated to you the latest generation of data processing technology.
In shared hosting, your website files are hosted on a server along with the files of other websites, and the server’s bandwidth and resources are shared among all the websites on that server. You have very little control over the server settings or operations. For real-time example, it is same like renting a unit in an apartment complex where you share parking space, storage, and laundry facilities with others in the complex. Shared hosting is an affordable solution that is generally well suited to most small- and many medium-sized businesses that have simple, straightforward websites with daily traffic under 2,000 visitors.
On the other hand, there’s dedicated hosting, in which you lease the amount of exclusive server space you think you’ll need and you have full use of the server bandwidth and resources. There’s no sharing with other websites. You can control and customize the software and computing operations as needed; even though you don’t have access to the server hardware. It’s similar to living in a large single-family home. Dedicated hosting is often the right solution for large, complex, high-traffic sites.
Now consider VPS hosting. You have your own space on a physical server that is partitioned into multiple private environments. The technical term for this is “virtualization.” So while others may reside on the same physical server as you, your space is yours alone and you don’t share resources and bandwidth like you do with shared hosting. Like dedicated hosting, VPS hosting allows a high degree of control and customization. You can change server settings, install software, add users, and even turn the server on and off as needed.
One way to visualize VPS hosting is to think about living in a condominium building. A single building is divided into multiple private units of various sizes. Each unit has a private laundry room and storage area, and a reserved parking space – resources. In general, VPS hosting is more affordable than dedicated hosting. It’s a good solution when you want your own server space and resources, and the control of dedicated hosting – but you don’t need the amount of space and power that dedicated.
