What is a VPS?

Last modified: July 12, 2020

A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a type of hosting plan where your website is provided with the specific resources it needs as they are required. When resources aren’t required, they are made available to other websites that are using the same server.

What Are The Benefits Of A VPS?

A VPS hosting package offers lots of benefits to the end user. Firstly, they are fairly low cost, especially when the cost is compared to a cloud or dedicated server. While at the same time the performance is very good for small to medium traffic websites.

A VPS server is also modifiable, i.e. you can attach more resources to your server to improve performance. This isn’t always the case with shared hosting.

With the benefits of the VPS server, the performance of the website is much improved over the shared server. Load times can be considerably reduced. This is an important thing to consider. For every second your website takes to load, you’ll lose 7% of your revenue. In addition, load times directly impact your website’s ranking on Google and other sites.
