When you are trying to create or sustain a successful business, it is important that information and communication between users is shared quickly and efficiently. Web servers play a major role today in internal and external communication. It is for this reason that many businesses are moving towards virtual private servers (VPS) for their hosting needs.
Increased Performance due to guaranteed resources.
Unlike shared hosting plans, where resources such as memory, CPU-time, processes, are shared with numerous users, a VPS will ensure that your enterprise remains independent of other users.
Websites that share a server with multiple websites of unknown users can be affected by the performance or lack of security of another website hosted on the same server and can cause functionality problems. For instance, if a website sharing the same server as your business is receiving high levels of traffic or has been compromised to send SPAM, it can slow all of the sites on the server. By using a VPS, the functioning and performance of your website will never be determined by other sites.
With VPS, you get root access to the web server. If you do not use a VPS then you must rely on software packages that the hosting provider supports and approves. If your business needs specific software that is not approved by the host, then this can cause issues and some hosts may prevent the use of the software entirely. By using a VPS, your business will be able to freely implement and customise the server.
A VPS makes it easy to scale up operations with zero downtime i.ewithout stopping the server activity. In fact, scaling up typically does not require any downtime, so your business will continue to operate without interruption.
Lower Cost compared to Dedicated Servers
It used to be that businesses would typically opt for shared hosting plans because Dedicated servers were too expensive to use. However, as internet technologies have advanced, and with the advent of the VPS, the cost of web hosting has significantly decreased, make a VPS an option for nearly any business.
A VPS will allow for more flexibility and easier scalability as you expand your business. In addition, the low cost of using a VPS compared to a dedicated server makes this option affordable for nearly any enterprise. If you are in need of a stable, secure and expandable environment for your hosting requirements, there is no better cost -effective solution than a virtual private server.
