Top 3 benefits of using a VPS

Let’s first look at what VPS (Virtual Private Server) technology is. VPS can easily be summarised as full control over a slice of a server. A host server will normally have several VPS servers running on it. The best way to visualise how VPS works is to think of an apartment block. Although there are many individual apartments under the one roof - each has their own electricity, gas and water so they can operate individually. All owners go in and out using the same main door of the building just as VPS traffic all goes through one network port.

What are the benefits?

Gives you more control

With VPS hosting you are given control of your server. This is ideal with websites that use customised software packages or like the ability to install custom applications. Businesses on VPS are also given access to dedicated resources meaning as your business grows you can instantly access more RAM, faster CPU speed and more disk space for storage.

It’s affordable

Small and medium sized businesses can all benefit from the use of a VPS hosting plan. It is an economical solution for businesses that want more control and stability when choosing a hosting plan. With VPS, you get all the benefits of a dedicated server but at an affordable price.

Keeps your website online

With any website it is vital that it is up and running 24/7. It is important to ensure your customers can access your site at all times. With a VPS you have access to your own ‘mini-server’ meaning that activities of other websites running off the same main server will not affect your site. In the unlikely event of a hardware failure, the high availability option ensures 99.99% uptime.
