Vps A virtual private server (VPS) refers to a server that hosts more than one domain, but it is running functionally as if only one domain is on the server. This is a great option for small businesses because it is a step up from shared hosting where the size of your site is limited to the partition that the host places your site within. VPS hosts also come with another advantage. They cost a fraction of the price of a dedicated server, allowing your business to save money on website costs and use the capital for better purposes.
If you are debating going with a VPS hosting service, ask yourself the following questions: how much traffic do I anticipate having? And; Will there be a good deal of file transferring between the site and viewers? If you plan on having a great amount of traffic to your site with plenty of file transfers, a VPS might be a good idea over a shared hosting service. While there are many hosts out there that might offer unlimited space for your website, a VPS operates on all levels as if your site is the only one on the server.
A dedicated server becomes a good idea under a few conditions, the biggest one being security. Since your domain is the actual only site on the server, there comes an enhanced sense of security associated with your site. Only large companies need this option, but if you are a quickly growing company owner, this is something you might want to consider.
