Understanding Server Hosting

Updated on August 18, 2014

Understanding VPS Server Hosting

Let's start at the basics: VPS stands for 'Virtual Private Sever'. Other people usually call it 'Virtual Dedicated Server Hosting'. In VPS hosting, unitary server gets partitioned into multiple servers. Kind of like shared hosting, right? Wrong. For VPS hosting, each of the partitions is entirely independent from the rest. In fact, each of the multiple servers can be independently rebooted. So it’s basically a hybrid of shared hosting and dedicated hosting. Yes, you are freed from sharing server space with other clients.

So, what is a VPS server? Put simply, a VPS server is the sum total of the resources of a physical server brought together within the same physical hosting node in order to create a virtual dedicated environment. What is this hosting node? This is where numerous VPS servers run. The VPS servers are housed in an environment that is static-free and whose climate is controlled. The 'Virtual' part comes in because you can access the server from any part of the planet. All you need is an internet connection and you're good to go.

Understanding Dedicated Server Hosting

When it comes to server hosting, this one reigns supreme. It's the 'Lion King' of the web management jungle. With dedicated hosting, you get to have an entire server for your site. Your site doesn’t get part of a server, it gets the whole server. That's right-you are the sole owner and controller of your server. You share it with nobody. We offer both VPS and dedicated server hosting in Cyprus, Nicosia and Netherlands, Amsterdam. The choice is all yours.

What VPS Servers Hosting Offers You

Everyone has a different budget plan, and VPS server hosting is offered for those with a lower budget. However, you still get your very own dedicated web hosting environment. Look at it this way: different ministries in the same governments or different employees in the same company. Each are completely different, and perform to their best individually, but are part of the same unit. With VPS hosting you'll be getting to work independently in your own ministry, completely detached from the rest. They do not affect you, you don't affect them. So, how does VPS plan benefit you?

Benefits of VPS Server Hosting

First is the control. You are in control of your own server. And with control comes flexibility. This means you get to customize it in any way you want. You can add any software or applications that your site may require in order to work at its best. More so, most VPS servers are secure. However, you are free to install your own anti-virus and other malware detection software that you deem fit, to protect your site from hackers and other malicious attacks. You are usually offered a range of plans to enable you pick the best suited to your situation.

What of the technicalities? Do you need skills, training and expertise to manage your VPS? Well, if you can, you can opt to maintain your VPS server by yourself. Alternatively, if you feel you’re not up to the task, or you want to be sure, you can hire a professional to do it for you. Or, the best of choices-you can pay the VPS server hosting providers for the VPS maintenance.

Usually, VPS plans are customized to meet your needs. You only need to pay for the features you require. You need not budget for features that you may never need. However, the VPS plans are easily scalable. This means that they adjust to your requirements, should they change. They easily accommodate the growth of your site and traffic. For instance, you can start off with the minimum resources you need and gradually work your way up as time progresses and your business succeeds.

Benefits of Dedicated Hosting

Put simply, dedicated hosting is dedicated to your business. The server is all yours, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. With this comes enhanced performance and superb reliability. With our dedicated servers, you don't share bandwidth with anyone else. This means that you website always has access to the resources it requires. You don't need to be an IT whizz to know that this translates to excellent performance. The chances of your server becoming slow or getting crashed by some other site are literally zero.

Dedicated hosting gives you remarkable security. How so? You are assured that a server and all its resources belong to you. This makes it very secure. When you add updates and protection software to the list, you basically have yourself a fortress of a server. Your online activity and website is safe and secure.

Businesses grow, internet traffic increases. As your website grows, you might find yourself wondering if you'll need more space. Do you find yourself having to migrate to a new server when this happens? Are you tired of having to look for a new hosting provider to accommodate your growth? With dedicated hosting, you need not worry about all that. With the dedicated servers, your business and website can blossom, grow, and expand its reaches without you needing to fuss for space.

The dedicated servers are entirely private and free from monitoring, apart from the bandwidth usage and in the case of DDOS protection. You can use the servers for an array of things ranging from website hosting to data storage and backup to even media streaming.

Freedom in Server Hosting for Maximum Effectiveness

For your site to be the success you require, you need a hosting environment that is uniquely customized to meet this end. You can thus have any applications and softwares installed to for this. This is especially beneficial to large businesses. So you need not worry about how your business runs applications and services that are not necessarily available in other shared web hosting environments. In addition to this, you can make any changes and alterations to the operating system installed in either your VPS or dedicated server. This is primarily because you are provided with direct access to the servers' management console.

What to look for in Server Hosting Providers

You need personnel are both qualified and professional. Seek out experts that provide exceptional services, to which their clients can attest to. Check out their testimonials. They should carry out their duties with the decor that is required and treat you as family.
