What is VPS hosting ?

18 March 2013

VPS hosting or Virtual Private Server Hosting, is a virtualized dedicated server. VPS mimics the shared hosting on an dedicated server. Technically VPS is shared hosting and dedicated hosting in one. The Offshore VPS Hosting is one of many types of web hosting plans you can choose from to host your web site online. In order to have an online project, you need to have your web project files on a dedicated web server. Managing and configuration a server can not only be difficult, but expensive too. By purchasing web hosting , you have the ability to rent small part of an dedicated server in order to host your website online. It is much more easier for the average user , since you only have to upload a copy of your website in to your web account folder.

VPS Hosting or virtual private server hosting technology is used to get multiple virtual servers from a single physical server. The method is by partitioning a physical server into multiple Virtual Private Servers (VPS). Each one VPS has resources and OS that is independent from the other virtual servers on the physical machine. Thus the overall performance of one VPS never implicates with another VPS on the same physical machine. VPS comes with a free Server Control Panel where you can manage most of your VPS details: view VPS info, Reboot, Manage Rescue OS, Bandwidth Usage, Server Graphic Stats and more. Additionally you get a functional Webmin Control Panel for easy web based Unix system administration.

Why is VPS Hosting different than Shared and Dedicated

If you are considering a dedicated server and are unsure if it is right for you, perhaps you will need to get VPS hosting. Dedicated server is optimal for those who have very high traffic to their online projects or are on need of specific server configurations. However, not everyone needs a fully dedicated server. For example, if you’re just starting with your website, you could save some of your budget if you rent small portion of an entire dedicated server , the so called VPS hosting. In the other hand , Shared hosting is where you share an entire dedicated server with thousands other users . Shared Hosting is less expensive but has lot of limitations.

Advantages of the VPS Hosting

Security

First and very important advantage is the Security – VPS has low risk of unauthorized access from hackers or other customers, because each VPS is indeed isolated virtual machine from all other VPS machines. This makes VPS Hosting highly secured compared to shared hosting.

Dedicated Mail Server Each VPS has its own mail server with its own dedicated IP address. This prevents your email capabilities from being blacklisted because of somebody else spamming activities.

Performance Reliability Performance Reliability is the second and one of the most important advantages the VPS Hosting has. One single customer cannot exhaust large share of the resources but actually exhaust up to its allocated resources. This assures reliable and predictable service for you.
