Shared hosting, sometimes called shared services or virtual hosting, is simply when multiple web sites share the same server, means there are multiple website which runs on the single server and as a result it reduces the cost for everyone. If you choose Shared Hosting account then that means your site will usually be on a server with hundred of other websites. That may sound like a lot, but it usually works extremely well because most of the websites don’t generate the enough traffic or use enough resources and that is why your website works fine on shared hosting account and does not create problem.

Shared hosting is suitable for personal websites, small businesses, and even medium sized businesses if their hosting needs fit within the parameters of a small business.

resources efficiently, it actually works out quite nicely. Because most people and businesses don’t use most of the features they have available to them, using feature lists to choose a web host doesn’t usually narrow the field much.

Shared Hosting

The only real problem with the most shared hosting companies is overselling. Overselling means the host has put too many sites on one server. A good server usually has at least a gigabyte of memory, but if thousands of sites have to fight it out for memory, CPU cycles, and bandwidth, it means all the sites will be slow. Fortunately, with our hosting service we will prevent this from becoming a problem in the first place.

Virtual Private Server

VPS stands for virtual private server. It is sometimes also referred to as a virtual server or a virtual dedicated server. It takes one big server and partitions it off into several smaller servers. Each VPS hosting account can have its own operating system and can be rebooted without affecting the other accounts on the machine.

When to move to VPS?

Before deciding when to move, let us first understand what VPS Hosting is. VPS (Virtual Private Server) is a hosting solution sitting between shared hosting and dedicated server in terms of the features it offers. Basically, VPS slices your server resources vertically to allocate you certain amountof disk space, memory, processing power and bandwidth. Unlike shared hosting, your blog or website does not suffer in a bad way from major performance issues while on VPS hosting because your account has your own dedicated chunk of resources. In shared hosting, it’s like a pool from which you consume bandwidth, disk space and processing power until it is

Note: The pictures are only meant for a raw comparison. Actual virtualization is a complicated topic in itself

VPS actually allocates a chunk of the server resources for your account that ONLY your domains can consume.

More over VPS allows unlimited domain hosting (like shared), multiple dedicated IPs, private name servers etc along with the option of using semi-managed or fully-managed solutions – all within your own private space. You can also decide whether you want cPanel or Plesk for your admin interface.

Moving to VPS is a decision that’s taken based on the following criteria:-

  • High website traffic and hence need for speed
  • Your business’ branding needs – using private name servers etc
  • Supportability – Full or semi-managed hosting support
  • Improved security – Advanced security features, backups and monitoring
  • SEO needs – Fast loading pages, dedicated IPs and private name servers seem to help the onsite SEO aspects of a website
  • Ability to manage your client’s hosting needs – You can create individual accounts within your VPS to provide hosting services to your clients. Just like the way reseller hosting works
  • Advanced performance management options – Good hold on the server parameters for better performance.

If you get more than say a couple of thousand page visits per day, the shared hosting may not be suitable for you. Even if that’s not the case, if you are sharing your hosting space with large number of high traffic blogs or websites, you are anyhow under severe resource crunch.

Needless to say, it is all done by the support team and hence you just need to know how to use your WHM (Windows Host Manager) interface and cPanel.
