Why Choose a VPS?
Posted by David on 02 August 2011 11:00 AM

If you are looking for a hosting package and want the control of a Dedicated Server, but with the affordability of Shared Hosting, then VPS may be the answer. VPS stands for Virtual Private Server, and has become the preferred hosting solution for small to medium sized businesses.

It effectively provides a solution which successfully balances the limitations of shared hosting and the flexibility of dedicated server hosting. The reason it has become so popular is that it provides control which is at a similar level to a dedicated server, but at a price which is far more affordable and similar to that of shared hosting.

VPS Compared to a Dedicated Server

  • It is burstable and therefore you only take the available resources you need, as and when you require them
  • It has the functionality of a Dedicated Server at a far lower cost.
  • Backup is made easy as you can simply manage your own backups via your control Panel
  • Managing your VPS is made easy by allowing you to access your user friendly control panel for simple and easy upgrade of your VPS at any time.
  • You have the flexibility to increase your service plan as and when you require more resources when you grow.

VPS Compared to Shared Hosting

  • Security is provided in that your file system is not accessible or viewable by any other customer, therefore providing you with the assurance that all your files and information are private and secure.
  • You have control over the Server, as with either administrative or root access, you can modify server configuration files, install applications or modify system software.
  • As you are fully isolated from other users and actions on the server, no other customer can slow down or affect the service that you receive.
  • The performance of your resources will be guaranteed based on your plan, nothing else on the server will affect the performance of your VPS.

Netcetera offers a wide range of Virtual Servers which start from as little as £14.99/pm and include FREE setup.  To find out more about how Netcetera’s wide range of solutions can help you, contact our Sales Team today.
