If you are new to the internet it's more than likely you have heard of the phrases hosting, or VPS hosting. You may not understand what this or how it will help you but there are many uses for it. Many individuals may be wondering exactly what VPS Hosting is. A virtual private server (VPS) allows users to divide their server into multiple servers. Each individual server has the capability to run different operating systems as needed. This also allows each individual server to be rebooted as needed without interrupting the other servers. One single individual can use each of the servers for different purposes or they may choose to rent out each of the other servers for profit.
Up until a few years ago the biggest hosting options available to companies were dedicated or shared hosting. With the modern changes that have been made recently businesses can benefit from VPS Hosting. They can have full control of their website which has often been compared to a managed dedicated hosting but without the high price tag. With this type of hosting you have the benefits of having technical support that takes care of all of the tedious work such as security monitoring, updates, backups, or anything else that needs to be done.
You can run and host as many websites as you like with VPS Hosting. They only factor that will play a part on how many websites you can host is the amount of disk space required. Each VPS Hosting plan has a specific amount of space that can be used so you will want to make sure you do not exceed that limit. If you go over your allowed disk space it may cause all of your sites to go down until you either remove a few of the sites or have the service provider to increase your allowed space. If you know on average how much space your website or websites use it may be in your best interest to place an order for VPS Hosting that is a bit larger than you normally use which will give room to grow.
Controlling your VPS Hosting can be done remotely from your desktop. You always have complete control over it using an admin control panel. Each service provider usually installs some type of control panel which will allow you to access your VPS hosting as needed. The type of control panel varies from one company to another and at times you can pay an extra fee to upgrade to a better control panel. You are the administrator of your hosting and can often install other types of programs as needed. The price that you pay will depend on the type of VPS Hosting you order and the amount of space needed.
