VPS as the word stands for means a Virtual Private Server. Here a physical server is distributed into a number of servers via a virtual partition. Each virtually partitioned server has its own operating system or an OS. The operating system can be Linux or Windows. Usually people buy a Windows VPS because of its ease of use.
Since each VPS is a separate entity it can be rebooted independently without affecting any other server. Because of this ease, Hosting Companies are taking advantage of it and selling it to customers at a very cheap price hence the term Cheap VPS. Not only the hosting companies but the customers are also getting benefitted from it a lot. But how?
Everyone who wants to make a presence online has to make a website and get it hosted from a hosting company. One has three options to choose from the first one being Shared Hosting in which you do not have much features. The second option is a Dedicated Server in which you have features like customization, increased security etc. But this option is very costly. There comes the third option called as VPS or a Virtual Private Server which is very cheap as compared to a dedicated server and still offers all its features. So VPS is for people who want to make an online presence, want to expand their business or have an increased traffic and still are low on budget and cannot pay for a Dedicated Server.
Advantages of Cheap VPS –
- One of the biggest advantage a VPS offers is its low set up cost. If you set up a dedicated server for the same features then it would cost you almost three times the cost for setting up your VPS.
- Here you can host a large number of websites on the same server which is not possible in case of Shared Hosting and very costly in a Dedicated Server.
- You can have a better control over your server as compared to a Shared Hosting plan.
- You can customize your server as per your requirements. You can download and install as many applications and software as and when you need you them.
Drawbacks of a Cheap VPS –
There is only one drawback to this type of hosting. Here one has to have a thorough knowledge of the platform he is choosing on his VPS. By platform we mean to say either Windows VPS or a Linux VPS. Usually people prefer windows because of its ease of use as compared to Linux but Windows VPS is usually expensive than a Linux VPS because of the licensing cost involved in it.
After studying the various features described above of a Cheap VPS all we can say is that it is a perfect combination of price and features when compared to a Dedicated Server Hosting. Here you get the price of a Shared Hosting and still have all the features of a Dedicated Hosting.
