There are a number of reasons why many companies and organizations prefer to switch to Dedicated servers or VPS. Here are six of the most common ones:
Now that the reasons are understood, let's consider the main differences between VPS and dedicated servers, as these two types of hosting are often confused.
VDS stands for Virtual Dedicated Server. VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. In both cases, we are talking about the server that is virtualized on a very real physical machine. That is, the client gets to manage a virtual dedicated server, which runs on a physical one. The client has full control over the provided capacity, he can change the settings as he likes, install any software, etc. That is, can dispose of a server as if the physical possession of the iron.
Shared hosting - is a type of hosting, in which the client gets to own only part of the server. That is, one server is running several accounts with the same rights. And on each account maybe a few sites. This type of hosting is cheaper and suitable for small projects. If you need to host a small business site, a small blog, a forum or a small online store with low attendance, then the hosting is what you need.
Thus, switching to VDS/VPS servers is suitable for medium and large businesses that require full control over the server infrastructure and administration.
The most common problem is the transition to VPS or Dedicated server requires manual administration of the project, which means you will need to find a qualified specialist.
In addition, difficulties may arise at the stage of transferring the site, if it is done manually. In fact, the site is very easy to port and it is only done in 4 steps:
