How VPS hosting can benefit your web site or small business web

Submitted by sbd on

There are so many different types of web hosting it may be confusing. Often we go for the lowest cost which is shared web hosting. With contracts to lock in even lower prices, we are also often left disappointed with a shared web host that does not deliver. If you have a large web site or plan rapid growth there are alternatives. In our previous blog entry we covered cloud hosting and today we cover Virtual Private Server or VPS. The following is an excerpt from our new article, Virtual Private Servers Explained: Have you outgrown shared hosting?

A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is what is created when a web hosting provider takes one of their larger servers and divides it into many separate small servers. Also known as a Virtual Root Server (VRS) or a Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS), the idea originated due to a need to provide more individualized services to website owners who found that they needed more power and functionality than their shared web hosting account could provide. Before the advent of a VPS, those who needed to upgrade their shared web hosting account had to do so using a dedicated server, which can get quite expensive.

What Exactly Does VPS Mean?

A Virtual Private Server is quite the inventive idea. Since a number of small virtual servers can be used instead of the one large server, which are now considered to be individual servers and can now be rented out to many different customers, more people are going to benefit from the additional resources that come with a VPS. These customers are now not only able to still have access to the power that the larger server provides, they are now able to receive their very own dedicated Central Processing Unit (CPU) as well as Random Access Memory (RAM).
