Although the end product of both VPS and Cloud Hosting may seem similar, the functions, practices, and operations of these modes are very different. Sure, both ultimately provide a similar hosted solution; however, the way in which they work radically changes the final product.
VPS, or Virtual Private Server, refers to a web hosting plan in which the virtual server appears to users as a dedicated server, but is installed on a computer that serves numerous websites. As such, the physical server hardware is shared. That being said, VPS does not use a computer as a server. Instead, VPS works as software within a user’s personal computer and functions like a separate computer dedicated to each individual’s specific IT needs. In doing so, VPS acts as a middle ground between shared hosting (which has lower costs) and a dedicated server (which allows for complete control). In utilizing this mode, users are allotted in full configuration, customization, and administration as they would with a dedicated server; however, they do not have to pay for a dedicated server. Instead, the server is divided (virtually) into pieces, which still maintain the same functionality. This means that each user that utilizes VPS Hosting is assigned a specific piece of the system’s resources, which they then tailor to their needs.
For most of the medium sized businesses getting a dedicated server is not possible due to the huge costs associated with it. In such a case, businesses can certainly opt for bodHOST’s virtual private server often known as VPS or VPS Hosting. It is one of the best and affordable alternatives to a high-end dedicated server.
Unlike shared hosting and similar to a dedicated server, a virtual private server offers various benefits for SME’s and SMB’s. Some of the core advantages of having a bodHOST’s Virtual Private Servers are listed below:
Web hosting companies provide shared hosting services with a lot of features, but sometimes they set heavy limitations for secure environments.
If anyone want to get a web page on the internet then they have to choose a suitable web hosting provider. There are many web hosting providers in the web hosting market with their different hosting plans, like- shared hosting, reseller hosting, vps hosting, dedicated hosting, cloud server hosting etc. Users have to choose the web hosting plan based on how they plan to utilize their website, how much budget they have for the server, and how much time they want to spend maintaining the servers which make up the website.
Bodhost’s Linux dedicated servers are offered with the choice of cPanel/WHM and Plesk if you require a web-based control panel through which you can manage your dedicated server and any hosting related services, for example clients and web hosting plans. As the only other method of management available to you as a Linux dedicated server administrator is through SSH, a web hosting control panel is strongly recommended as an addition to your hosting package so that you are able to fully utilize the features and power that a dedicated server can offer.
