The Difference Between VPS Hosting And Other Types

With VPS, a partition created on the server sets aside some of its resources just for you. While VPS plans often no longer provide access to features like unlimited storage and bandwidth, you generally gain a performance boost in the form of load speeds, reliability, and security.

Unlike dedicated or colocation hosting, you still share universal resources with other accounts on the same server instead of having all resources to yourself. Unlike shared hosting, other accounts of the server do not eat into your allocated resources.

VPS hosting can also exist as a part of a cloud hosting configuration. In this case, your virtual server exists on a network of servers rather than a single machine. While this generally costs more, it also results in a significant boost to uptime and reliability with hosts frequently being able to offer 100% uptime. It’s common to find host refer to VPS plans on cloud server as simply cloud hosting.

The Benefits Of VPS Hosting

VPS hosting is a versatile hosting setup that can appeal to most customers in need of hosting due to its low cost and improved performance over shared hosting. This type is ideal for small businesses that want to keep expenses down while still providing a great experience to customers shopping on their website.

VPS hosting is usually managed by the web host, although unmanaged VPS is also common to find. With managed hosting, the provider is responsible for updates, security, configuration, and changes to the server powering your sites. Managed VPS also runs on a Linux-based operating system, the most popular server OS platform in the world, most of the time. This makes upgrading to or from VPS hosting an easy process.

The Best Services For VPS Hosting

When shopping for a VPS hosting, there are two important factors to look out for beyond the basic things like storage, domain and email caps, and allocated bandwidth:

  1. Managed vs unmanaged hosting: As previously mentioned, it is common to find both managed and unmanaged VPS plans offered by a single hosting provider. Unmanaged hosting gives you more freedom in how you use your server but places most of the server responsibilities on your shoulders. Generally, what you want to accomplish is the deciding factor between these rather than cost.
  2.  If you decide to go with unmanaged VPS, you will need to also pay for a server OS license if you intend to run that on your account. However, some web hosts do provide this license for free.

VPS hosting provides less opportunities for hosts to cut corners than shared hosting. However, it is still recommended you read reviews from trusted sources before making your purchase.
