The 5 Major Benefits of Using a Virtual Private Server

I think you’ll agree that over the past several years, virtual private servers, or VPS hosting has exploded in the hosting industry. As virtualization costs lower and performance increases, this will only continue.

Why does this matter?

You may be on the hunt for the perfect hosting solution for your project. Today, we’re going to show you the five major benefits of choosing VPS hosting, and why ServerMania Hybrid Servers may be the perfect fit for you.

Our server experts are always available to help you find the perfect server. Book a free consultation today.

Let’s get started:

1. Increase Reliability

Shared hosting is like a stack of dominos. One bad user can make the entire server come crashing down.

Shared web hosting will soon be a thing of the past. With many hosting companies overselling their servers and piling on as many as thousands of customers on to the same web server, the reliability of their services will soon diminish.

When hosting on a shared server, your website’s uptime and performance can be impacted by other websites on the same server. What this means is that if your web server happens to also host a 12 year old wanna-be programmer that happens to crash the server, your website will suffer from this as well.

It’s important to ask yourself if you are willing to take those kinds of risks with your websites, especially if it is used primarily for business.

There’s a better way.

ServerMania Hybrid VPS hosting significantly increases stability and reliability over shared hosting. Unlike traditional VPS hosting, Hybrid Servers are completely isolated from one another and very few servers are hosted on each node. This ensures optimal uptime and performance.

2. Gain Total Control of the Server

One of the best parts when choosing VPS or Hybrid Server hosting is that you have full root access to the server.

Why is this important?

With root access, you have complete control over the server environment to tweak it precisely for your needs. If you need a custom software package installed or port opened, you can do so without having to wait for your hosting provider to support it.

Shared web servers are typically optimized for security and performance as best as possible, and this means that there are many popular software packages that are not support due to their security limitations.

Having your own virtual environment allows you to bypass all of those issues.

3. Increase Efficiency on a Green Platform

Green hosting and the use of eco-friendly technologies has been gaining a lot of popularity over the past few years. It is important to do your part to make sure your carbon footprint is as little as possible.

VPS and Hybrid Server Hosting can help you achieve this.

With dedicated server hosting you are taking all the resources of a server – which means you are the only person benefiting from that server’s power consumption. However, with a virtual private server, a large dedicated server is sliced or divided into different virtual environments. This way, more people share the resources of that physical server and allow the resources to be optimally used.

4. Instantly Scale Resources

For someone who is starting a new website with hopes of growing it into something much larger, being able to scale your hosting resources without any downtime or technical issues is very important.

When you host with a VPS or Hybrid Server, your environment is hosted within what is called a container. This container is allocated a certain amount of resources depending on the package you purchased. The great thing about how these containers work is that they can easily and quickly be allocated more or less resources as you need them.

For example:

If you need to upgrade your ram quickly when you are expecting a high surge of visitors, you can simply add more ram to your container with the click of a button. If you were using dedicated hosting, someone would have to physically install the new ram into your server – which would result in downtime and lost traffic.

5. Cost Savings

VPS and Hybrid Server hosting solutions are much less expensive now than they were only a few years ago. With advances in virtualization technologies, the prices are only expecting to decrease. Because of this, Hybrid hosting is now an option for all website sizes – even if you are just starting a brand new site.

Here’s the deal:

You can get a small private hosting environment for as little as $29 per month – this is just as cheap as many shared hosting accounts but without all the risk and performance issues associated with them.

VPS Hosting vs. Hybrid Servers

ServerMania offers Hybrid Servers rather than traditional VPS hosting. Hybrid Servers use the same technology as VPS hosting, except they have fewer clients per server and offer dedicated resources. This delivers a superior experience over traditional VPS hosting.

In Summary

Once you decide to move to a Hybrid solution, chances are you will never look back. It is important to consider a provider that allows for easy management so you have complete control over upgrades and scaling your solution. Many VPS and Hybrid packages also come with one of the popular control panels that will take care of all your needs as far as maintaining and managing your website.
