If you are on a shared hosting plan right now then its high time you shift to a VPS Hosting plan as a VPS Hosting plan is cheap, more efficient and very secured. These features are not there in Shared hosting solution. Having a shared hosting solution in the beginning is ok if you just want to make an online presence. But if you wish to have more than an online presence and wish to do some serious business then get started with a VPS Hosting plan.
In VPS Hosting you have an option to choose from Windows VPS or a Linux VPS plan. Both Windows VPS and Linux VPS are equally capable and very efficient in their own way. The only difference between Windows VPS and Linux VPS is that a Windows VPS is GUI based and Linux VPS is text based. So this makes Windows VPS more user-friendly than a Linux VPS plan.
Before you upgrade to a VPS Hosting plan there are some considerations you must have a look at before you make an upgrade. These are –
- RAM or memory
- Disk space
- CPU speed
- Dedicated IP
- Control panel
- Bandwidth etc.
Usually RAM is the most critical factor that governs the performance of your virtual server. If you are going to install lots of applications of your virtual server or expect a large volume of visitors everyday then a bigger RAM should be chosen. Usually a 512 MB RAM is sufficient for high traffic on a site. But if you have more than one site then 1 GB RAM would be good enough for you. If your site is for eCommerce purposes then more RAM will be required. The more RAM you choose for your virtual server, the better performing it will be.
The next factor that comes is the disk space and the CPU speed. You must always check that whether your VPS Hosting provider would be giving you a separate CPU of your own or a shared one.
The next thing you need to see as to how many dedicated IPs you would need. Usually one dedicated IP is given along with all virtual servers. In case you wish to have more than one dedicated IP then you can put in a request with your VPS Hosting provider for additional IPs.
Control panel is next. You must choose the type of control panel for your virtual server depending on the operating system you have chosen. For Linux VPS users you would need cPanel or WHM. For Windows VPS users you would need Plesk or Enkompass. You also have the possibility to upgrade your control panel anytime in a VPS Hosting solution.
