What is VPS or Virtual Private Server?

Many people have this question as to what is a VPS or Virtual Private server and what does a VPS do? For people who are not very technical, a server is just another computer which stores all the information required for a website and makes the website available when it is searched on the internet. Also, VPS uses virtualization technology which can help create multiple virtual servers on a server.  Each one of these servers is assigned only to one person or company. This is how a VPS is setup and functions. VPS helps to host your website so that it can be found when someone searches for it with the relevant keywords. 

Comparing VPS with Shared and Dedicated hosting

Shared and Dedicated hosting facilities have been available even before VPS came in to picture. Most people prefer Shared and Dedicated hosting and it works well for them. In a shared hosting facility, you have to share your CPU, RAM and hard drive space with all the other websites which are hosted on that physical server. In the Dedicated hosting, you have a server and its resources reserved only for you and your website. Shared is less expensive, however, Dedicated hosting is much more expensive and not suitable for small companies and enterprises. VPS is somewhere between both Shared and Dedicated Hosting. It is less expensive as multiple websites can be hosted without affecting or sharing the resources allocated to one website. You get better scalability options with VPS hosting and unlimited bandwidth for your website.

Choosing the best VPS hosting plan

This is something which the business owner can decide for their website. When you select VPS hosting you have two plans, managed service, and self-managed service. If you are familiar with server administration, managing applications, services, and software installed on a server then you can self-manage your hosting, however, for non-technical people managed services is the best way forward. Apart from that, you may also have questions as to which OS to go for, Linux or Windows. You can set up a Windows VPS for hosting your website or even a Linux one. It is important that you select the right OS as Windows VPS is easier to use and user-friendly with a GUI or Graphics User Interface. Some companies do not offer Windows hosting services.
A hosting service should be reliable. The uptime should be 99.5% and anything lower than that is not at all acceptable. Also, make sure that the hardware that is being offered is up to date and latest in technology. These will make the installation and running of applications easier. The service provider should have a backup plan and a 24/7 available Customer support for any breakdown. Backup plan is important so that in case of an issue you can easily set up the website again instead of starting from scratch. 

Why should one upgrade to VPS?

The business owner needs to take a call on this one. You can understand your business requirements and check your website. There are some parameters which can help you to make the decision as well.  Parameters such as security of the website and its data, increase in the web traffic on the website, slowness issues with the website, Online store, Installation of software, unwanted server errors, and cost-effective solutions. If any of the above parameters are true then you should move to VPS plans for a better management of your website and business. 

Conclusion

Since now you have the information in regards to VPS hosting, you can decide which hosting solution is the best for you. If your website is growing and is getting the attention, and if you do not want to affect the performance, then you can upgrade your website with a VPS plan. VPS is costlier than Shared hosting but less costly than Dedicated hosting, but the benefits of a VPS will surpass both Shared and Dedicated hosting services. A VPS hosting plan is reliable, with better scalability, unlimited bandwidth and SSD storage for a better experience.
