The recent technology in the web hosting world is VPS (Virtual Private Server).
It is a cost-efficient web hosting option, which allows the small web owners to enjoy the benefits of dedicated server at a low-cost.
In VPS, a physical server is segregated into various independent servers for every website.
It means that you will get a separate private server instead of sharing it with other websites.
Now, a question arises is that how you can decide to switch to VPS? In my opinion, no one can answer this precisely.
The decision can be made by ones' experience.
When you start a new blog or website, you can rely on shared web hosting.
However, in this type of hosting, you will have to share the same server with lots of other users.
A problem with a single website can disturb the working of the server.
For example, a security hole in a single website can harm other websites.
Nevertheless, as the traffic starts increasing and the website begins to generate good earning, you may think to switch to VPS or dedicated hosting.
Switching directly to a dedicated server is a costly option and may not be required for the website.
VPS is the most proper solution if you want to get for largest benefits within a small budget.
A VPS allows enjoying dedicated server features and resources.
You get separate disk space, Ram, bandwidth and operating system.
No one else can affect or interrupt your website's performance.
Moreover, there are certain interactive features and software that are needed to attract more traffic to your websites.
In VPS, you get complete access to your server and can install/update all such softwares, plug-ins and applications.
This facility is not provided by a shared server; you will have to switch your hosting package to VPS.
Another reason of switching to VPS is the problem of over use of resources on the shared network.
If you are having a shared hosting package and the services will be terminated due to high-bandwidth usage, it's the time to have a VPS package.
Furthermore, if your website is at a point where the amount of traffic is increasing day by day, and the website is becoming slower, don't think it's a fault in the website.
This would be due to over burden on the web server.
The solution is to upgrade to a better hosting option, or you will have to lose your visitors and profit.
Precisely, virtual private server (VPS) is the most secure, cheap, and easy to deal web hosting option for high-traffic websites.
You must research well before switching and selecting a reliable VPS service provider.
