VPS Hosting Service
VPS hosting is a Virtual Private Server, and is a virtualized server. VPS services allow you to install your own security software and configure it with the operating system of your choosing.
VPS hosting is an excellent platform for personal websites, small-to-medium-sized business websites, or e-Commerce marketplaces. To ensure that you make the right decision for your situation, start by diving into what VPS hosting service offers and whether they are a good fit for your needs.
As the end user, it appears as though you have your own dedicated server. With our dedicated servers, you rent an entire server. This is optimal for people that have very high traffic to their websites or need to setup their server in a very specific way. Not everyone needs to have a fully dedicated web server however. If you’re just getting started with your website, you can save quite a bit of money if you rent a virtual private server.
Because a VPS is analogous to a virtual machine, any software that can run on the VPS’s operating system may be installed. For example, a VPS can be used to support any of the following:
- E-Commerce Software
- Blog Hosting
- Company Website
- File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
- Email Server
- Data Storage
Monthly Backup- In our VPS backup plan, we also include monthly backup plan besides with daily backup, which will be ensured by every last day of the month at 1 AM. For many businesses though, VPS hosting offers up all the benefits they expect at a reasonable cost. Some benefits of VPS hosting are as follows:
Flexible Resource Allocation
VPS hosting offers dedicated resources for your website; specifically, the amount of RAM, CPU, and disk space you specify are assigned to your VPS. If, however, your website experiences a surge in traffic and requires greater resources than you have specified, you may be able to temporarily borrow resources from another VPS.
The flexibility permitted by the VPS is one of its most useful benefits. VPS hosting often makes use of a hypervisor, which is software that facilitates this sharing of resources.
Root Access to Customize and Configure the VPS
VPS hosting also gives you root access to configure and make changes to your hosting environment. Root access is not guaranteed with other arrangements, such as a shared hosting plan. If you are particularly tech-savvy or foresee hiring web developers in the future, the root access will allow you to configure your VPS accordingly.
As you don’t share your OS with anyone else, there are no other websites on your server that potentially have access to your files.
VPS hosting offers scalability so that available resources can grow with you as you need them. This means that if you start out on a server, you would then need to invest time in migration to a VPS when required. However, if you start with a VPS, you can migrate slowly without breaking the bank on a server, which you may not need for quite some time.
An Affordable Option
VPS hosting is much more affordable for website owners than purchasing a dedicated server. It can reliably host your website or application, handle surges in traffic, and grow to accommodate your needs over time. Rather than committing to a dedicated server and spending nearly twice as much (or sometimes more) than a VPS hosting solution, take your time to evaluate your options.
