VPS Hosting

In VPS hosting, which stands for Virtual Private Server hosting, a physical server is divided into several logical virtual servers, each of which is private. This means that, contrary to shared hosting, you get full root access to your server, no other user can sneak into your account or files. You can also fine tune all configuration files and you can even run any linux program that you may want to.

VPS hosting is almost as good as dedicated hosting. The only drawback is lower performance since the physical resources (processor, hard drive, etc.) are shared between several VPS instances. The advantage, though, is that you get all the security and flexibility of a dedicated server, at just a fraction of the price.

The main caveats in choosing your VPS hosting provider, are:

  • Performance: this depends as much on the actual specs of the physical servers the hosting company uses as on how many virtual servers the hosting provider decides to run on each physical server. This information is very difficult to get by.
  • Technical support: with root access to your server, it is pretty easy to mess things up. In those cases, quality and reactive technical support make a huge difference from one host to another.

Want alternatives?

  • If you don't actually need to fine tune your configuration or if you are looking for a lower budget hosting solution, check out our selection of shared hosting plans.
  • If your have a higher budget, we actually recommend that you consider a small cheap dedicated server which will give you significantly better performance. For example, you may get 10 times the performance of a VPS for only 3 times the price of a VPS.
