Although VPS server hosting may not fall under the same umbrella as Windows and Linux dedicated servers, they do share some of the same attributes that can be a huge benefit to website owners.
If you imagine a scale where shared hosting (in which multiple websites share one server and its resources) is at one end, and dedicated servers (entire server and its resources to yourself) is at the other — VPS hosting (virtual private server) finds itself right in the middle. What we mean by this is that while you do share a server with other sites, your site is assigned dedicated VPS resources to ensure quality and to prevent other users’ websites affecting your own.
To give you a better idea about what you can expect from a VPS hosting service, we’ll highlight how it differs from other types of dedicated server hosting, and why it’s incredibly beneficial to many website owners.
A virtual private server is a virtualised server that mimics the concept of a dedicated server but does so as a shared hosting environment. This provides customers with dedicated VPS resources, without the need for their own physical server. It’s technically both a dedicated and shared server.
Although this does mean that VPS doesn’t produce the same level of performance as dedicated server hosting, it’s leaps and bounds above shared hosting because you don’t have to ‘share’ resources.
Whether you should choose VPS hosting or dedicated server hosting depends on your website’s needs, so to help you decide, here are some of the advantages of virtual private servers.
Are you looking for a web hosting service that is efficient, scalable, and caters for a tighter budget? A Virtual Private Server provides the benefits of dedicated VPS resources without the expense of a physical server — the ideal option for any website owner in need of high-quality hosting at a lower price.
