What is a VPS hosting server?
VPS servers are priced much lower than an equivalent physical server. However, as they share the underlying physical hardware with other VPSes, performance may be lower, depending on the workload of any other executing virtual machines.
Although the resources are still shared, as under the time-sharing model, virtualization provides a higher level of security, dependent on the type of virtualization used, as the individual virtual servers are mostly isolated from each other and may run their own full-fledged operating system which can be independently rebooted as a virtual instance.
A VPS server is ideal for a small to medium business that requires enough server power to host an online booking website.
VPS Servers are available for Windows and Linux. This page is for Linux VPS Servers. For Windows VPS server, please click here
Windows or Linux? What’s the difference?
Linux VPS hosting servers run on the Linux operating system.
Linux Hosting is any type of hosting using the operating system (OS) called Linux on the server. Linux is a Unix-like operating system provided as a free, open source choice. Linux is the most common and widely-used operating system in the web hosting industry.
Even though Windows OS is the most widely used OS for computers because of its ease of use, this isn’t the case with Windows Hosting. Windows Hosting is very complex compared to Linux Hosting. And it doesn’t support PHP, a scripting language which is widely used and very simple. This makes way for Linux Hosting. So no wonder Linux Hosting Powers about 80% of web servers in the world.
And we’re all price conscious who need top-notch features at a very low price. This is why Linux Hosting is most preferred as opposed to Windows Hosting.
