VPS Hosting is a new hosting solution that has come into being and has started attracting many all over the world. Lots of users of Shared Hosting are shifting to VPS Hosting. It has become a necessity for everybody now to have an online presence for his business. In order to do that you need to have hosting and VPS Hosting has become the best choice since it offers all the features that a Shared Hosting does not. Also it offers all the features of a Dedicated Server Hosting and still costs a fraction of its price. So we can say that a VPS Hosting costs something similar to Shared Hosting but is far cheaper than Dedicated Server. This is the reason why VPS Hosting is gaining popularity over Shared Hosting.
A VPS is based on the concept of virtualization and is created by dividing a high end physical server virtually. Virtual Private Server is an independent server, has its own identity and acts as your personal server, even though you share the same physical server with the others. VPS is of two types; one based on Windows and the other based on Linux. A Windows VPS is more popular among people as it is very easy to use and is based on GUI (Graphical User Interface).
A Windows VPS or a Windows Virtual Server helps people who want to do website development. People who need more reliability will surely not opt for Shared Hosting because of bad neighbor effect. VPS Hosting would be the best choice for them since it is as cheap as a Shared Hosting solution but still is very much reliable. With a Virtual Server people can get the best of both the worlds, which means low cost advantage of a Shared Hosting and advanced features of Dedicated Server Hosting.
Here are some major advantages of a Windows VPS or a Windows Virtual Server:
- Security and reliability
The main advantage you get from Windows VPS over Shared Hosting is that you don’t have to face a bad neighbor effect. Each virtual server acts as an independent server and can be made secure completely. Also a virtual server gets updated automatically as and when updates are available. So a Windows Virtual Server becomes of great importance for anybody who wants a secured environment.
- Customization and Scalability
In a Windows VPS or a Windows Virtual Server one can install and uninstall applications and software as and when desired. This is not possible in a Shared Hosting plan. Also in a Virtual Server you have a Burstable RAM in place so you can increase and decrease resources as per your will. This is the main problem in a Shared hosting plan. You have to constantly fight for resources since you share the same server with the others. So in a VPS Hosting every user gets its own independent server and, hence, his own dedicated resources.
- Not a constraint in your growth
People who are planning to expand their business or have started getting a larger traffic on their website, then Shared Hosting would not be able help you in any way. Then you would be needing your very own virtual server as a Windows Virtual Server (Linux also) is able to handle more traffic on your website. Also a Windows VPS supports lots of applications such as ColdFusion, ASP.NET etc., so it will never be a problem for webmasters to perform various activities on their Virtual Server.
Thus a Windows VPS or VPS Hosting is an all-in-one solution for everybody.
