VPS Vs Dedicated Vs Cloud Server

Simplifying Hosting, Because Life is Complicated Enough!

> Cloud Hosting >Detailed Comparison of VPS vs. Dedicated vs. Cloud

What is Web Hosting?

It is a service that lets the organizations and individuals post their web-based content, websites, and blogs, etc., on the Internet. These are stored, or hosted, on special computers called servers. A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and the services required to view that web-based content on the Internet. When someone wants to view your content via a web browser, they just to type the address of your website or the domain name in the browser. The computer will then connect to the server which hosts your website and deliver the content through the browser. Hosting companies help you buy domain names in case you don’t own any.


What is Virtual Private Server (VPS) Hosting?

VPS is a virtual machine that is sold as a SaaS (Software as a Service) by hosting providers. Virtual machines are computer emulations which means hardware or software that lets one computer mimic another computer. For example, an emulator makes a host use peripheral devices and run software made for the guest system. It runs its own operating system. It is one of the most famous hosting services. Virtualization provides business owners with dedicated (private) computing resources on a single server with many users.

VPS is more stable and safe as compared to the shared hosting service because it provides a dedicated server space. It is used by businesses that have moderate traffic on their website which surpasses the limits of shared hosting but yet is not worth renting a dedicated server for. Super users of VPS are provided access to the operating system instance, and this enables them to install any software that runs on that operating system.


Advantages of VPS:

  • Cheaper than an equivalent physical server.
  • More safe and stable than a shared server.
  • Easy to create and configure.
  • Grants superuser access to the server.
  • More privacy as the files are locked from other server users.

Disadvantages of VPS:

  • Costlier than shared hosting.
  • More technical know-how is required to manage the server.

What is Dedicated Server Hosting?

In dedicated server hosting, the client rents an entire server, to use exclusively for their business. Not just the computer, they solely use the software and the connection to the Internet as well. It is needed by organizations whose websites get a significant amount of traffic, say up to some million hits a day. Servers can be remotely configured and operated by the business owner. Go4hosting also offers the service of allowing a client company to purchase and install their computer servers at our data centers, a service termed as colocation. We provide a control interface that is easy to use.


Advantages of Dedicated Server Hosting:

  • More flexible than shared hosting.
  • Full control of the server.
  • Redundant powers and HVAC systems.
  • High performance.
  • You get a unique IP address.

Disadvantages of Dedicated Server Hosting:

  • It is an expensive option.
  • The server is owned by the hosting provider, you only own the data.

What is Cloud Hosting?

Cloud hosting is a way of storing and accessing data across several computers via the internet. Put together, these computers behave like one and provide infinite computing power and storage. Dropbox is a web-based application which is essentially a cloud storage service provider. Cloud enables resource sharing and scaling. This model of on-demand computing relies on a stable internet connection to function. It is achieved using the least resources and administration. In cloud hosting resources are drawn from multiple servers, so if a server goes down, others can fill in.


Advantages of Cloud Hosting:

  • Easy disaster recovery.
  • Cloud is an inexpensive hosting solution.
  • It offers the option to scale.
  • Unlimited data access.

Disadvantages of Cloud Hosting:

  • Downtime.
  • The Internet is needed.

Which is better VPS or Dedicated or Cloud?

None is ‘better’ as compared to the other. These are three different types of technologies based on the needs of the client. You choose the hosting service according to the distinct demands of your business. What matters is that you once you have chosen the right type of hosting for your business, you make sure that the hosting provider is promising.
