According to a recent UCVHost report, businesses used to struggle to transition from shared to dedicated hosting plans.
The issue arose because shared hosting plans feature hundreds of tenants on a single virtual server. This allows companies to participate in an extremely inexpensive but limited virtual server hosting service, according to the report.
Dedicated servers are essentially the opposite, the report said, because they are owned by a single entity and offer incredibly powerful and customizable hosting.
However, many businesses would outgrow a shared hosting plan, but were unable to afford a dedicated plan. The issues stemming from this difficult transition have been resolved, as the recent implementation of virtual private servers allow virtual server hosting providers to offer a plan that is comparable to dedicated servers in terms of power and security, at a price that is more closely related to shared hosting services.
A recent report from the Web Hosting Geeks explains the VPS server is significantly more powerful than shared devices because it allows users to leverage more RAM and dedicated computing resources. In a shared server, resources are split between tenants based on need. In a VPS, each tenant receives a dedicated number of resources.
