What to Consider when choosing a VPS Hosting

 

Virtual Private Server Hosting is booming day-by-day. VPS is a virtualization technology which helps in performance and functionality enhancement, which is supposed to continue. In many ways VPS is more like to a dedicated server, but as a much cheaper option. Here, we’ll explain some of the main criteria you should be looking for.

Which Platform is Right for You?

You need to first decide on type of VPS environment – Linux or Windows. Linux and Windows are two different hosting platforms  and have their own pros and cons. If your site is performing on ASP or ASP.net you will need Windows environment. Linux platform is considered as a cheap, secure and reliable, most hosting providers use today.

Managed, Unmanaged or Semi-Managed?

If you have ever gone VPS shopping, or been active in the web hosting world for a while, you might already have heard of “managed VPS” as opposed to “unmanaged VPS”. What is the difference between the two?
Managed VPS hosting means your server is taken care of by VPS provider, while unmanaged hosting means you are responsible for complete care of VPS server. With our VPS Hosting plans, you get Semi-Managed VPS, so we take care on network and hardware health and uptime, necessary OS and security patches in the datacenter, OS installation/reinstallation requests, as well as VPS start/stop/restart requests.

While it is possible to order a Management service, this may require sharing login information and including technical staff in each aspect of managing your VPS, while Semi-Management could be the best option for most users, familiar with Linux environment.

High-Performance Hardware - Scalability and Redundancy

In a datacenter, having a backup resource in place is referred to as redundancy. Suppose there’s a failure in regular power supply, you need to have generators and UPS systems as a backup. Or if the services of ISP are interrupted, there should be another alternative to it or if one server gets overloaded, you should have an additional standby server and so on. Scalability refers to manage sudden/occasional high server loads, generally by using redundant resources in the system. The collaboration of redundancy and scalability result into consistent performance and higher uptime.

Be sure to never look at a VPS that has less than 1 GB of RAM (that’s the bare minimum). It is rather surprising to see that even to this day many web hosts offer VPS plan with 512 MB of RAM — that’s even weaker than a shared hosting account! Moving to a good VPS must provide you with exceptional server performance, much superior to standard shared hosting. To make sure you get the fastest and most reliable performance, make sure that the hardware used by your host is of the best quality. Look for the latest Intel Xeon processors, high-speed memory slots, enterprise-class SSD drives and high-performance RAID controllers. SSD storage is much faster than mechanical HDD drives and will provide superior performance for any of your applications. Remember, we use industy-top, best quality hardware for our VPS hosting plans and that guarantees high speed and best performance ever.

Quick Setup

Unlike dedicated server, which requires few hours to be built according to your requirements, VPS setup could be completed very fast, just after the payment will be verified and validated. Sure, appropriate OS and addon software has to be selected.

Control Panel and Technical Support

Having the right control panel can make it much easier to manage your VPS hosting environment, your websites, accounts, emails and any other applications that you run on your server. The most useful and supported control panels are Plesk and cPanel, both of which are industry leaders and which you may be familiar with from your shared hosting.

Although it is very easy to manage VPS and hosted data with the contol panel, in some cases you may face issues which may require much deeper investigation and resolution problem, and 24x7 Superior Technical support here will play an important role. Moreover, with cPanel control panel on your VPS you additionally receive direct access to cPanel Support Portal, where highly qualified cPanel Staff will directly assist and help you.
