VPS Hosting – Review & Comparison

 

What is VPS – Virtual Private Servers: VPS is a method of partitioning a server in such a way that each partition is allowed to act as it’s own server or a virtual dedicated server. Each VPS runs its own operating system, has its own bandwidth and disk space, and can be individually rebooted.

Why VPS: Most people start of their websites using shared hosting. It is inexpensive and is good enough for most individuals and small businesses. However; when you starting making progress in the world of internet marketing, shared hosting cannot handle your processing load and your bandwidth. You can go with your own dedicated server but that is an expensive route. VPS severs are in between shared hosting and dedicated servers. You get great performance at a more reasonable cost and if your traffic grows more than anticipated, you can easily ratchet up the hardware and bandwidth needed.

There are lots of companies offering VPS hosting and it is difficult to find out which provider is the best for you. The following comparison will make it easier for you.

Notes: comparison of web hosting companies:

  • CPU: The amount of guaranteed CPU resource/usage allocated to your VPS node.
  • ND: Not disclosed. Certain hosts don’t disclose the CPU figures.
  • Some values are rounded up.
  • Why is money back guarantee important? Because if for whatever reason you are not satisfied, you can recover your investment and start afresh with a new hosting company. For example, if you sign up and after setting up your website, you find your website is running very slow. That means that the host is not providing appropriate resources or you have selected a plan that is not good enough for your load. Time to get your money back and move on. Most provide money back within the first 30 days but check before placing your order.
  • Set up is Free on all the above VPS hosting plans.
  • Most offer hosting of unlimited domains and unlimited MYSQL databases.
  • Most don’t offer Fantastico as part of the bundled price. You can buy and install Fantastico yourself if you like.
  • They all offer email services so we have not included that in the comparison table.
  • They all provide web site statistics, 24/7 telephone, chat and email support.
  • We intend to keep this comparison updated periodically as more and more people are setting up virtual private servers (VPS) and it is always helpful to compare the latest VPS hosting deals.

    […] Virtual private server, is for those who require a more robust server than a shared server but cannot afford the expense of a dedicated server. It is a type of dedicated hosting service where the physical server resources are divided into smaller virtual servers,where resources can be allocated in a way that does not directly reflect the underlying hardware. VPS will often be allocated resources based on a one server to many VPSs relationship, however virtualisation may be done for a number of reasons, including the ability to move a VPS container between servers. The users may have root access to their own virtual space. A detailed review about the same can be read here. […]
