What are the benefits of a VPS
Each hosting solution has its own advantages and is suitable for different phases of a business. A VPS is good for companies that feel restricted by shared hosting plans but are not ready or cannot afford a dedicated server. It is ideal for organizations seeking:
With a VPS, you can customize your hardware and software configurations and your running applications.
Lower costs than a dedicated server: the hosting company can distribute the operating costs and maintenance of the server to all companies working on a specific machine. Depending on your host, the monthly fees may be as low as $20.
Better security than shared hosting: because you do not share space with others, your errors, incorrect scenarios, or resource usage do not affect up-time or accessibility of your website.
Independent FTP and POP access: the use of FTP and POP E-Mails of other users has no influence on your access and your speed.
Root access: because a VPS works as an independent server, you get root access that you need to configure and install your own operating system and other applications. Shared hosting gives you access to only one directory on the shared server that does not allow customization of the software.
Less need for technical knowledge from a dedicated server: in most cases, you can use a graphical panel to access the VPS to install and configure your applications. Dedicated servers typically require manual configuration.
You need a virtual private server;
Maybe it’s time to consider upgrading from shared hosting to VPS, if:
Your business grows and gets more traffic: your Website resource requirements, approach your shared hosting provider’s premium Level plan, you can often get more resources and flexibility with a VPS for the same cost.
You want to run applications that your shared hosting plan does not offer.
If many pages are hosted on the same server, your site may become vulnerable if others are injured or attacked. With VPS you have a safer piece of real estate on the server that keeps your data safe.
You need more reliability and uptime: depending on how each user uses at any time, the bandwidth on a shared server changes constantly. If your infrastructure breaks down, your business can’t run. VPS allows you to provide more uptime time for your own share of resources.
You want more control over your server overall: with a VPS you have root access to your configurations and install any software you need.
