1. Increased Reliability
As the amount of traffic on a Shared Hosting server grows, it may begin to lag or experience downtime. VPS Hosting can handle a spike in traffic better than shared hosting. Because all of the resources provided to a virtual server are used by a single website, VPS Hosting offers the illusion of a dedicated server to the customer. As a result, it puts less burden on the server and, as a result, provides better website reliability than Shared Hosting.
2. Software Freedom
With shared hosting, your software and operating system options are limited to the hosting provider’s preferences. VPS Hosting, on the other hand, allows you to install the operating system of your choice. If you don’t want to deal with the technical aspects of server management, you could go with a Managed VPS Hosting service. The hosting company assigns professionals to handle the configuration and software requirements, allowing your website to handle high traffic volumes.
3. Take Complete Control of the Server
With VPS Hosting, you receive complete root access to your virtualized environment in addition to the software freedom. This is critical information for users who want to customise their server and install additional programmes to handle excessive traffic. In addition, security apps play a significant role in traffic control.
4. Dedicated Resource Availability
Unlike shared hosting, where the physical server’s resources are shared among the websites hosted on it, VPS Hosting provides a dedicated environment with a set number of resources for a single website. Although the resources can be adjusted up or down to meet the needs, the resource usage of other websites has no bearing on your website.
5. Better Security
Cyber criminals and spammers frequently target websites with a significant volume of visitors. VPS Hosting is less prone to cybersecurity attacks due to its virtual environment and account isolation. VPS Hosting also provides full root access, which gives you complete control over your server and allows you to install and customise security software of your choosing to further strengthen protection.
