A few things
to consider when choosing a VPS server solution
A virtual private server (VPS) is
installed on a computer shared by multiple customers, unlike dedicated
server where all of the resources are dedicated to a single website
owner (therefore is more expensive).
Comparing to Shared web hosting, which provides limited customizability, vps server
gives more control over your server and guaranteed
amount of allocated hardware resources. A VPS hosting solutions usually
provide a minimum amount of hardware resources (RAM/CPU/Network access)
that is guaranteed 24/7.
A VPS runs operating system such as Windows Server, Linux or Unix. The
customer has the ability to install and configure any program he wants.
It may be a web server program like Apache, a mail server, an FTP
program, and applications for blogging and e-commerce such as
Drupal, Joomla, OpenCard.
VPS hosting gives the flexibility of a single website owner to maintain
several virtual servers, each one with its own operating system, and to
host multiple websites.
Since the customer is in control of the VPS server, it may be a
challenge for the inexperienced user to install OS, configure the
server, install and customize new software. In that case, finding
a reliable VPS hosting company which can help with OS and CMS
installation, and configuring the server is essential.
When choosing a VPS hosting provider you need to pay attention to some
other important points.
Get acquainted with the details of VPS
server hardware resources, technology, and host server specifications.
You need to know details of your hosting company like: what customer
service is offered, what is the downtime,
connection speed, backup
measures, security, is physical location of servers close to your
VPS server is a good choice for small
businesses and smaller projects because it provides performance,
customizability, fast configuration options and great scalability at
