You will get full control over your virtual server but there are lots of things you will have to keep in mind. You get great features in VPS Hosting but also it is important to keep this solution secure so as to enjoy its features fully.
When you choose VPS Hosting solution then it becomes the duty of your hosting provider to keep your virtual server secured all the time. They keep all the systems in place so that there is no danger to your server from virus or malware etc. This is the reason why we say that virtual server is the best solution for anybody as not only you take care of your server but the hosting provider manages it for you and also makes sure that it is up and running all the time.
The great way to keep your secured is to keep it updated at all times. Your server must have the latest updates installed on it. And in case of VPS Hosting, this is the major advantage as your virtual server has the ability to update itself on its own as and when updates are available.
