When you sign up for shared hosting, the hosting company will put your website on a server along with hundreds, if not thousands, of other websites. This means each customer has to share space and resources on the server with every other customer, including CPU time, memory, and disk space. Think of shared hosting like living in an apartment building. All of the residents share the same building, but share things like elevators and stairwells, car parking, and garbage collection. Shared hosting is the cheapest and most economical option as far as hosting goes. However, you get what you pay for — in this case, shared hosting comes with strict limitations. VPS is similar to shared hosting in that your website shares a server with other sites, but there are fewer sites sharing space and resources and the server is partitioned out into different virtualized server environments. Think of VPS like living in a condo.
What Does Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS) Mean?
Choose high performance cloud servers and leave traditional Virtual Private Server VPS hosting and dedicated server hosting in the past. Traditional VPS hosting slices up larger dedicated physical servers and shares them between users. VPS providers use technologies such as Virtuozzo to isolate multiple users on the same physical server from each another whilst running a single shared instance of the operating system. By contrast, our next generation KVM technology enables every user to run their own isolated copy of the operating system they choose, providing an open choice of operating systems, deeper configurability, higher performance, stronger isolation and better security guarantees. With our unique cloud server hosting you keep the best aspects of virtual private server hosting and combine them with the many advantages of cloud computing.
