What is VPS Hosting ?

VPS Hosting

When you’re using a Virtual Private Server – or VPS for short – you’re still sharing a server with other users. However, your web host allocates an entirely separate partition for you on that server. This means you get a dedicated server space and a reserved amount of resources and memory.

In fact, VPS hosting can be great for medium-sized businesses with a rapidly growing number of websites and traffic.

Pros

  • Dedicated server space
  • Traffic surges on other websites have no effect on your performance
  • Root access to the server
  • Easy scalability and high customizability

Cons

  • More expensive than other types of hosting
  • Technical and server management knowledge is a must
