Advantages of a virtual (VPS) server
The Internet project serves as a modern tool for business development. An entrepreneur's website gives him the opportunity to actively build up his client base and increase sales. For the stable operation of the project, high-quality hosting is required.
On the hosting market, the most common types of services for hosting a website are:
- inexpensive virtual hosting. It is suitable for novice site owners with small projects;
- virtual server. This option is considered optimal for popular sites. Thanks to virtualization technology, the real server is divided into autonomous host machines (VPS / VDS). At the same time, several virtual ones are formed on the physical server, endowed with dedicated resources, taking into account user needs;
- a dedicated server, the lease of which is ordered for high-load sites, since the productive work of such projects requires all the power of a real server. This service is expensive. It is suitable for hypermarkets and other busy projects.
For many sites with high traffic, a virtual server is convenient and profitable. Own OS, hardware allows you to independently perform the necessary operations. Working on a VPS does not depend on other clients, as on a regular hosting, where server resources are shared for projects of different customers.
Hosted sites on a VPS have the same capabilities as on a dedicated server. A virtual server contains part of the resources of a real server machine. Therefore, the cost of services is much lower than when renting a real host machine.
A guaranteed amount of resources is allocated for a VPS, which is enough to ensure good performance. If, for example, there is a lack of RAM, then you can always expand the server capabilities.
VPS is a fairly economical hosting service option. It is compatible with various operating systems, flexible in management, and offers a wide range of settings.
The customer is granted administrator rights. Administration skills allow the tenant to independently change the configuration, optimize work, and install software. Such operations are not available on shared hosting, where the provider manages the processes.
