Let’s get started:
1. Increase Reliability
Shared hosting is like a stack of dominos. One bad user can make the entire server come crashing down.
Shared web hosting will soon be a thing of the past. With many hosting companies overselling their servers and piling on as many as thousands of customers on to the same web server, the reliability of their services will soon diminish.
When hosting on a shared server, your website’s uptime and performance can be impacted by other websites on the same server. What this means is that if your web server happens to also host a 12 year old wanna-be programmer that happens to crash the server, your website will suffer from this as well.
It’s important to ask yourself if you are willing to take those kinds of risks with your websites, especially if it is used primarily for business.
There’s a better way.
Apps4Rent Hybrid VPS hosting significantly increases stability and reliability over shared hosting. Unlike traditional VPS hosting, Hybrid Servers are completely isolated from one another and very few servers are hosted on each node. This ensures optimal uptime and performance.
2. Gain Total Control of the Server
One of the best parts when choosing VPS or Hybrid Server hosting is that you have full root access to the server.
Why is this important?
With root access, you have complete control over the server environment to tweak it precisely for your needs. If you need a custom software package installed or port opened, you can do so without having to wait for your hosting provider to support it.
Shared web servers are typically optimized for security and performance as best as possible, and this means that there are many popular software packages that are not support due to their security limitations.
Having your own virtual environment allows you to bypass all of those issues.
3. Increase Efficiency on a Green Platform
Green hosting and the use of eco-friendly technologies has been gaining a lot of popularity over the past few years. It is important to do your part to make sure your carbon footprint is as little as possible.
VPS and Hybrid Server Hosting can help you achieve this.
With dedicated server hosting you are taking all the resources of a server – which means you are the only person benefiting from that server’s power consumption. However, with a virtual private server, a large dedicated server is sliced or divided into different virtual environments. This way, more people share the resources of that physical server and allow the resources to be optimally used.
