Best VPS Hosting Article 1

What is a VPS in a nutshell?

A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is one of the latest evolutions in the world of hosting. A VPS gives a user all of the benefits of having their own dedicated server, without the hefty monthly bill. If you have a growing website, or simply need more server power and reliability, a VPS might be right for you.

How does the VPS technology work?
VPS technology allows multiple users to share the expense and hardware of one physical server, without a lack in performance. One physical server is split into independent sections. The server can then house multiple VPS accounts that are all run independently from one another.

Each VPS is allocated a fair portion of all server resources including:

  • Hard Disk Space>
  • Memory/RAM
  • Processor Power
  • Network Access and capabilities

Once a server is split into separate VPS accounts, each VPS can then run independently and will not be affected by the other VPS accounts on the one physical server.

Advantages of a VPS?
The true benefits of having a VPS over shared hosting include:

Privacy/Security – Each VPS is independent of the others on the server so you can be sure that your websites, information, and data are never affected by other user accounts or websites.

Reliability – Since your VPS is independent, you will not deal with server downtime due to another user’s website problems or errors.

Guaranteed Resources – You are guaranteed a set minimum amount of processor power, disk space, and memory so your websites will have all the resources they need.

Flexibility/Customization – Since your VPS will run its own independent operating system, you can load programs and scripts, make custom changes to settings, and tailor the system to your needs which is not always permitted on restricted shared hosting accounts.

Price – You share hardware costs with multiple users, so your monthly bill is less.

Why a VPS is right for you?
Virtual Private Servers are the perfect solution for the small business, or a website that has outgrown a shared hosting account. VPS technology is a great alternative to a dedicated server when power and reliability are needed, but not a hefty price tag.
