Most websites start with a shared web hosting account, which certainly serves its’ purpose. However, as your website grows, you may find a need for better hosting. VPS hosting solutions provide more control over the assigned resources, making it easier to support a higher traffic site and provide more security.
Bridging the gap between shared and dedicated hosting is EXACTLY what VPS hosting does. Your website may have reached a time where you know better hosting has become a need, but you cannot afford the expensive dedicated server hosting. When this happens, it’s time to use VPS hosting to bridge the gap.
VPS hosting won’t eat up too much of your budget compared to shared hosting. The upgrade process is very easy and our support team can assist you throughout the move from shared to VPS hosting. This will provide you with the ability to grow through the different levels of VPS hosting making it easier to transition to a dedicated server when the time arises.
Why Choose VPS Hosting?
Building an online business or taking your brick and mortar business online can become stressful, without the right tools. Hosting is one of the tools you need and choosing the right type of hosting makes a difference. Many times, businesses start with a shared hosting account only to find, it’s not the right solution.
VPS hosting offers a better solution for many small businesses, especially those expecting a large volume of traffic. Shared hosting is great for smaller websites and those just starting out, but an established business may need an upgrade within the first couple of months. If this is the case, it makes sense to start with VPS hosting and avoid the need for an upgrade.
When a business chooses VPS hosting, they gain many benefits including:
- More control over the resources
- Ability to handle larger amounts of traffic
- Added security features
- Comparable to dedicated server hosting without the high cost
- Easy upgrades for additional resources
Sometimes cheaper isn’t better, especially with hosting. VPS hosting costs more than shared hosting, but you get what you pay for. With shared hosting, you may experience larger amounts of downtime, slower load times and less security simply because you’re sharing the resources of a server with many other hosting accounts. You don’t have to worry about this with VPS hosting, since you get your own resources and the ability to secure your account much like you can with dedicated server hosting.
