Vps Web Hosting Services Vs. Dedicated Server Hosting06/21/2012
Whether you are developing a resource-intensive project or you are simply planning for how incredibly popular you expect your website to become, dedicated server hosting is a guaranteed way to get the best security, connectivity, and hardware power available.
Of course, getting your own dedicated server is also the most expensive web hosting option. If you are considering a dedicated server hosting plan for your business, it is possible that VPS hosting could offer similar resources and features at a more affordable price.
Certified Hosting understands how important it is to get the web hosting service that best suits your technical requirements, as well as your budget. To help you choose the right service for your particular needs, we compare the respective features of dedicated server hosting and VPS web hosting, and discuss how the right VPS web hosting plan could help you to get the power of a dedicated server at a fraction of the cost.
Do I need dedicated server hosting or a VPS hosting service?
A dedicated server hosting plan represents the most powerful – and most expensive – web hosting option. When you order a dedicated server, you receive a full server of your own, along with complete control over how the entire server is used. However, many dedicated server customers only use a small portion of the hardware capacity available to them. So why pay for something you don’t need?
A VPS hosting plan is built to mimic the behavior of a dedicated server, giving you similar control and power, but reducing your costs to a far more affordable point.
With the latest virtualization technology used to build and deploy VPS hosting, VPS hosting can replicate almost every major feature of a dedicated server, despite being on shared hardware. Your VPS hosting plan will behave exactly like a dedicated server, with guaranteed system resources assigned exclusively to your account. While your shared web hosting neighbors could hoard system resources and reduce the speed of your website, VPS hosting accounts that share your hardware will never affect your performance. With VPS hosting, you can depend on the availability of hardware power at all times.
In addition, the way in which virtual private servers are partitioned on server hardware ensures that your security is as robust as possible. If you store confidential, mission-critical data on your web hosting plan or in databases, VPS hosting gives you complete peace of mind that your data is just as protected as it would be on a dedicated server.
Although there is no doubt that some large-scale projects call for the massive resources of a dedicated server, VPS hosting represents an opportunity to get similar features at a competitive price. Across security, reliability, and consistency of performance, VPS hosting plans can give low-end dedicated servers a run for their money.
