Choosing the right hosting for your website is on of the major steps on the way of creating a successful online business. Shared hosing, SSD hosting, Dedicated servers, blah blah blah. When it comes to choosing the right kind of hosting for your website, most people get confused. Well, you’re at the right place. In this article, we’ll be learning why you should choose vps for hosting your website ?
So what is a Server
Basically server is a computer located somewhere in the data centre. What it does is, it serves your website whenever requested from a browser. Okay.
So What is VPS
VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. Unlike shared hosting, VPS offers you complete control over all the resources of that server.
Whats wrong with shared hosting ?
In Shared hosting, all the resources are distributed among the websites hosted on that server. Same as in case of a shared data plan for your family. It results in lowering the performance of your website.
Why VPS ?
Benefits and Drawbacks of Cloud Hosting
Let’s take an example to understand this. Last 3 months, all our family members were dependent on the same wifi router for internet connectivity. Though it costs very little, we all were facing issues like lower speed and less data transfer. The same goes here in the case of servers.
Benefits of VPS over Shared Hosting
Zero Maintenance : You don’t have to maintain your vps. The hosting provider company do that for you.
Dedicated Resources: Although you have to pay a little bit extra for VPS, you get full control over the resources like memory, speed, and bandwidth, etc.
Flexibility to Choose: In the case of VPS, you have the full choice to select the OS of your choice. You are free to install any application you want on your server.
No Visual Dashboard: In Cloud VPS Hosting, there is no Visual Dashboard like cPanel to manage your files, applications, and database.
You Have to Set it all: There are no pre-installed applications or modules you have to manage it all.
No support: The worst thing about VPS is there is no official support from the hosting provider company at all. If you’re stuck somewhere in the middle, you have to manage it all by reading forums, articles and searching about the topic on youtube.
