For virtual server hosting users that are outgrowing their shared hosting plan but cannot afford an upgrade to a dedicated server, a recent report from Trip To said virtual private servers can provide a combination of the two offerings.
According to the report, a virtual private server has many similarities with shared servers. The primary comparison is that both exist on a physical device shared between multiple tenants. As a result, both are budget-friendly programs because the physical device is shared by a number of clients.
The report said a VPS server is similar to dedicated servers because the device is distinctly separate from the other virtual servers on the same machine. This lets VPS users deploy dedicated server resources and enjoy advanced security systems comparable to those in dedicated hosting plans, according to the report.
According to a recent Web Hosting Geeks report, VPS servers are not only good for users trying to upgrade from shared hosting plans. Many virtual server hosting clients do not maximize their dedicated hosting plans, the report said, and would be wise to downgrade to a VPS server to maximize their financial resources.
