In the past few years, companies providing web hosting services on virtual servers have been establishing a firm new industry, offering companies an almost endlessly adaptable and scalable web hosting solution.
According to a recent report from HostReview.com, VPS servers have had a marked impact on the virtual server hosting industry.
A virtual private server provides an optimum balance between dedicated and shared servers.
In a dedicated server, a company rents out its own server space from a hosting provider, acquiring endless opportunities for scalability and customization. However, a company must pay a substantial sum to enjoy renting its own server.
As a result, shared servers quickly became popular due to their cost-efficiency. These give organizations the same scalability as dedicated servers, but were difficult to customize as the device was shared with other customers.
The new wave of VPS servers, on the other hand, present an optimum middle ground, allowing companies to inexpensively share a server, but create more space for customization because they do so with a smaller number of clients. As a result, VPS hosting allows organizations to maximize the potential of their hosted virtual server.
According to one hosted server organization, VPS solutions are ideal for SMBs, as they provide some of the freedom of a dedicated server without the subsequent costs.
