Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting is the future answer to those that have outgrown their shared hosting service, but can’t afford to upgrade to a dedicated server or don’t wish to do so. VPS hosting gives you full control over the server environment without all the resources of a real server. Today, it is often common for one person or business to maintain several websites on one machine. This often led to multiple problems that affected all the websites hosted. VPS hosting helps avoid problems such as one website crashing and taking down all sites being hosted. It also helps avoid the problems of one high traffic site hogging all the resources and making it nearly impossible to access the other sites.
So, VPS hosting breaks up the virtual space on one physical machine into separate compartments making each one unique and individual with its access and dedicated resources. Each compartment then hosts one website and keeps problems from one site from affecting any others as if each site was hosted on its physical machine.
There are many different VPS hosting plans available today that allows companies and individuals to find the best fit for their needs. Each plan has multiple options from the amount of bandwidth, RAM, storage, domains allowed, data backups, IP addresses and support that you want for your use. Important features to keep in mind when making your final decision are the amount of RAM, costs based on the amount of RAM you get for your money, the data center location, the disk space, the ability to use PayPal and the monthly transfer. Major differences arise went comparing other VPS hosting plan features such as for IP addresses, domains allowed, telephone support and semi-managed support. Several companies offer VPS hosting with unlimited domains.
