A virtual private server or VPS is basically a separate virtual machine dedicated to a single customer. A virtual dedicated server has a much like a dedicated server but has several advantages over that type of server. A dedicated server allows the owner to install whatever software they want on their server and does not have the restrictions of shared hosting where they may have to share the disk space with other websites of the same type. However, these servers have one main disadvantage: they cost more than shared hosting. In this article we will see how you can avoid the high costs of shared hosting by using VPS Hosting.
VPS Hosting is a new method to get web hosting without having to buy or lease a dedicated server. A VPS Hosting provider is an independent reseller who sells their own personal virtual server for other customers to use. This makes them very similar to the resellers of a dedicated server except that they are actually independent and therefore can offer their own packages and terms of service which you can use as long as you pay them what they charge.
Because VPS Private Servers is sold as an independent service from a web hosting company, they come with a complete set up, which includes everything that the reseller has to offer you. The only thing that you have to do is choose your own operating system and web host from their website. The most important part of VPS hosting is actually its physical design: the virtual hardware is configured by the host operating system itself and is not dependent on any other software. As such, it is highly resistant to attacks by viruses or worms.
Although VPS hosting may be a bit tricky to set up at first, the fact that you don’t have to install any hardware on your own computer, and that your server can be setup almost anywhere on your home (although not on the desktop) makes it easier than a dedicated server. This is why it is often used in home offices or home-based businesses. As such, you won’t have to worry about installing your own hardware.
Since VPS hosting can be installed on just about any computer with a working internet connection, it is often more economical for businesses. This is because a VPS host provides its own storage space, and since it is less expensive to maintain than a dedicated server, it is also often cheaper than a shared hosting plan. You also have no additional costs for web hosting, no monthly fees to rent space or use the mail server, no additional cost for hardware and no additional cost for installing software.
If you have been considering switching to VPS hosting but aren’t sure if it’s for you, then I would recommend that you look into it more carefully. As previously mentioned, this type of hosting is great for beginners, it’s very cheap, there are no monthly or yearly fees, it is easy to setup, you have your own root access to your server, you get unlimited resources, and you can easily configure the virtual operating system. It’s an ideal choice for anyone who wants to start a business in their own home without spending a fortune. It is also one of the cheapest ways to get a dedicated server and use it yourself for your own web site and personal use, and if you get lucky, it can even give you the ability to share it with other people!
