Virtual Private Servers SurfNet
VPS Hosting

A Virtual Private Server, more commonly known as a VPS, has much more power than a shared hosting account without the cost of a dedicated server.

VPS technology allows a single computer to be partitioned into multiple exclusive environments. These "virtual" servers are very close to a dedicated server for control, flexibility, performance and security, but are closer to shared hosting in cost.

Here are some of the benefits that come along with VPS hosting:

  • Stability - Unlike shared hosting, the traffic and activities of other VPS customers will not adversely affect your operation.

  • Performance - Having your own allotment of resources allows you and your visitors to enjoy faster load times.

  • Dedicated Resources - VPS hosting provides you with more disk space, CPU and RAM.

  • Flexibility - You have the freedom to choose the operating system and software you want to install on the server. 

Like a Dedicated Server, VPS hosting can be managed and unmanaged. Cost wise, the managed will be more expensive, but can save you a lot of headache. Also, some virtual private server providers have a control panel pre-installed allowing for a seamless transition from shared to VPS. Some providers do not provide a control panel or you must pay extra. We recommend going with a provider that includes a control panel. cPanel is the best in this case.

Some VPS hosting providers will limit the exact memory amount alloted to each environment while others allow for burstable memory over your limits to ensure your site will not break during times of high resource usage.

VPS hosting providers are known to handle CPU cycle usage of their accounts differently. Some providers offer an equal share of the CPUs while others limit the usage for each customer. Platforms that utilize fixed CPU allocations will be less flexible with overages.

Not all hosting companies provide virtual private servers and the level of personal support can vary greatly by company. Dedicated IP addresses, custom set -ups, and backups are all features that leading VPS providers should include. VPS hosting is a great solution for customers outgrowing their shared hosting capacity but are not ready to have their own dedicated server.
