Advantages of VPS hosting over shared hosting
« on: June 03, 2010, 02:19:09 PM »
Hi,

Here are some advantages of vps hosting over shared hosting

1> Security :  VPS accounts are insulated from each other, minimizing the risk of unauthorized access from hackers as well as other customers. The isolation of your account also minimizes the risk of being impacted by a DoS attack that was intended for someone else.

2> Performance :  All resources can be regulated in the VPS environment. One customer can not run away with a large share of the resources. You service will run reliably and predictably.

3> Protected Mail Service :  Each VPS account has its own private mail server, filtered by Postini. This eliminates the risk that your mail service will be blacklisted due to abuses of others sharing the same mail service. It also allows you to take your inbox back from the SPAMMERS.

4> Customer Installed Applications :  With VPS you have your own partition and root access. You have the ability to install applications that you want. Please note that hosting company provide support for customer installed applications. You also must assume the responsibility to update any applications that you install in the event that a security vulnerability is discovered in the version you install.

5> Growth Path  :  VPS system allows us to manage your VPS as an image. This means that your entire environment can be restored from backup to any physical server with no changes to your configuration. You can also easily downgrade or upgrade your service with no downtime!

I had complied list of advantageous of VPS hosting over shared and dedicated hosting, which might be helpful to those who are looking for a VPS hosting.

VPS hosting provide many advantageous to a webmaster because it can provide 100% airtime and an unfailing service to the customer. Normally one looks for VPS due to either of the following reasons, resources available in the shared hosting are inadequate, poor performance of shared hosting or for getting better control on software’s installed on server without going for dedicated server.

Usually shared hosting are less stable because of sharing of available resources by hundreds of websites hosted in the same server. Sharing of resources in competitive environment slower the performance of server.

VPS (Virtual Private Server) created using one powerful and reliable server which in turn split in to numbers of virtual servers at hardware or software level then each of the virtual server acts as an independent and separate dedicated server. So virtually you are getting full access on root level with better customization mostly available dedicated servers without being effected by poor performance of shared hosting. VPS can run an entire operating system on its own and having the option of rebooted independently. That means it having the features of single server and can function as a separate server.

Key benefit of going for VPS is one get root level access to your server to install or delete any software, create any accounts, set permission, effectively all the same things you can do on a dedicated server at a cost comparable to shared hosting services.

I have read your post.It is a very nice information.Thats a nice write up.A VPS provides you with isolation from other users and the ability to customize your own web server needs.It all depends what you need. If you need complete control then you need to have root access and you will need a VPS.If you only need control for your website then go for shared account.

A shared server hosts hundred of accounts on a individual concrete server without allowing root level access, control over security features, or many other measures for that matter. A person can update the code and put in small, insignificant applications on their web-site. However, important resources like RAM and disk space are dedicated to each VPS account.

VPS is better able to handle multiple customers when compared with shared hosting. The ability to host unlimited number of Websites & enabling backup & file storage facility are some additional great features of VPS over shared hosting.

VPS is much the same level with dedicated server, so you can create reseller accounts. However, if you are not familiar with VPS/server, you should be careful when choosing a VPS.

I think main advantage is security because security VPS accounts are protected from each other, minimizing the risk of follow up access from hackers as well as other customers. The isolation of your account also minimizes the risk of being affected by a attack that was intended for someone else.

VPS hosting involves the use of virtualization technology to partition a single computer to simulate multiple servers .The biggest advantage VPS hosting has over shared hosting is that it is secure and provides more control to the user.

Shared hosting is mostly used by individuals or small business owners, whose websites does not require much web space and server usage. whereas Usually, VPS dedicated servers are used by big corporate and governmental websites, which requires a lot of web space, have huge data transfer and require a high security for storing sensitive client data.
