I think you’ll agree that over the past several years, virtual private servers, or VPS hosting has exploded in the hosting industry. As virtualization costs lower and performance increases, this will only continue.
Why does this matter?
You may be on the hunt for the perfect hosting solution for your project. Today, we’re going to show you the major benefits of choosing VPS hosting, and why WDMSH may be the perfect fit for you.
Increase Reliability With VPS Hosting
Shared hosting is like a stack of dominos. One bad user can make the entire server come crashing down.
Shared web hosting will soon be a thing of the past. With many hosting companies overselling their servers and piling on as many as thousands of customers on to the same web server, the reliability of their services will soon diminish.
When hosting on a shared server, your website’s uptime and performance can be impacted by other websites on the same server. What this means is that if your web server happens to also host a 12 year old wanna-be programmer that happens to crash the server, your website will suffer from this as well.
It’s important to ask yourself if you are willing to take those kinds of risks with your websites, especially if it is used primarily for business.
Gain Total Control of the VPS Hosting Server
One of the best parts when choosing VPS or Hybrid Server hosting is that you have full root access to the server.
Why is this important?
With root access, you have complete control over the server environment to tweak it precisely for your needs. If you need a custom software package installed or port opened, you can do so without having to wait for your hosting provider to support it.
Shared web servers are typically optimized for security and performance as best as possible, and this means that there are many popular software packages that are not support due to their security limitations.
Having your own virtual environment allows you to bypass all of those issues.
Instantly Scale Resources With VPS Hosting
For someone who is starting a new website with hopes of growing it into something much larger, being able to scale your hosting resources without any downtime or technical issues is very important.
When you host with a VPS or Hybrid Server, your environment is hosted within what is called a container. This container is allocated a certain amount of resources depending on the package you purchased. The great thing about how these containers work is that they can easily and quickly be allocated more or less resources as you need them.
