What is in it for you?
Building a website is not a difficult task, but maintaining it is quite critical. It requires most of your time, hard work & expenditure in maintaining a website manually irrespective of size of your organization. If you are a small scale organization, you might need fewer resources to manage it but if you are large scale organization, you need more resources & manpower to manage your website & get desired benefits. Though you do all that needed for it, possibility of expected income seems to be vanished. To avoid the huge loss for what you are investing, choose the best method of managing the website – Virtual Private Server Hosting!

Basically VPS Hosting is subscription based server virtualization. It is a method of dividing a server in to several parts which operate like multiple servers. Each of them runs its own operating system, uses its own bandwidth and disk space. Each VPS can be individually rebooted at any time, & you can also monitor resource usage and keep track of traffic statistics of your website.

Economic way of maintaining website!
If your website is most visited website or busy website & has constantly growing number of visitors, downloads & hits, but cannot afford a dedicated server solution to hold the increased load to the website, then you have got good option of cost-effective VPS hosting solution. It ensures the protected hosting environment, with all the crucial resources that a dedicated server would provide such as CPU, memory, disk space and bandwidth, exclusively allocated to you.

You can choose an operating system and, also you can install your own software configurations as you get root access at your section. Though it is less expensive compared to dedicated & cloud hosting, it has some drawbacks. Unlike Cloud Hosting, resources are used from single physical machine which acts as virtual server. It gives freedom of operating independently of other users on the same physical machine but still some Hardware assets are shared such as CPU, RAM, and Disk I/O.

VPS is most chosen hosting solution by small as well as large organizations because it is less expensive than dedicated hosting & hosting provider maintains hardware and network infrastructures allowing full administrative (root) access at your division. You have two options to pay – a fixed amount for limited resources or paying amount per resource like CPU, memory, network, storage etc. per hour. It is expensive than shared hosting as you have own hardware & network infrastructure but could be still cost effective if you use allotted space only.
