A recent report from VPSAccount.com said VPS servers are capable of offering businesses all of the benefits associated with a dedicated server offering at just a fraction of the price.
This is possible, according to the report, because VPS accounts give the user dedicated processes, files and operating system access. Some VPS services even give webmasters the access to root portions of the device.
The report also likened VPS accounts to dedicated servers because they provide users with access to an independent set of configuration files, allowing them to customize their virtual machine with few restrictions. Even complex configuration tasks, such as editing PHP language, can be accomplished in a VPS environment, the report said.
Another VPS characteristic that provides comparable control to dedicated servers, the report said, is the ability to add, delete and modify files at will. Users can also add new applications freely in a VPS, according to the report.
According to a recent report from the Host Review, VPS packages are typically ideal for more advanced users seeking a high-performance solution to host active personal blogs, an ecommerce site or a small business' website.
