Nowadays, VPS Hosting and Cloud hosting has become more popular. Most people who are in online business need more resources to use on shared hosting and that is why VPS hosting has come up. VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. In shared server thousands of website are hosted and that is why there can be a possibility of downtime. Everyone wants to have the supreme resource, since downtime is become unavoidable in shared hosting server. Many users get disappointed with this poor performance and also the web traffic gets down. To avoid these kind of difficulties the virtual private server came in market. You may surprised why VPS and why not dedicated hosting. Well, the cost of dedicated server is an unaffordable for the small business people and shared hosting server never complete their requirement. The VPS Hosting is the best one for online businesses.
VPS server is similar to dedicated server and more effective than shared server. So this service is more beneficial for you because you can actually get the benefit of both shared server and dedicated server at low price tag.On VPS server all the Website works on their individual and separated server where nobody fights with another for resources. In this service you can easily choose platform as per your requirement. The downtime problem never occur here. Here you can stay tension free. In recent years many people shift from shared server to VPS server for all these benefits.
Here you can select the operating system as per your choice, it is only depends on which type of distribution service you select. So you are able to run your applications on your favorite operating system. But it does not matter which one you like most because you may need to run various types of services on your VPS server and each one of them will have a unique set of requirements. So think twice which type of operating system will more suitable for your different types of services.
Also you can install any application or software on the VPS hosting package. However some application need more resources like Java need more resources than PHP or MY / SQL. So the installation is depends on the specifications which are allocated to your virtual private server.
Before selecting shared or reseller hosting package, I strongly recommended you to note above points.
