Virtual Private Server(VPS)

Well, with Virtual Private Server, you are still sharing space with your fellow users, but here’s how it differs from Shared Hosting:

In this type of sharing you will not have to share resources{your site will have its own allotment of resources irrespective of what other’s are doing on your server} and will have more control over server {like configuration and allotment}.

Many hosting providers offer two types of virtual private servers.

  • Managed-This simplifies your job to a great extent as here the host manages the server for you, exempting you from have any technical knowledge.
  • Unmanaged-In this case you are required to configure and manage your server all by yourself, which makes it mandatory for you to have technical knowledge.

Known for its Scalability Feature, Cloud Hosting Technology allows you to add or remove resources. To put it simply, if your site on a certain period unexpectedly gets a rise in traffic, you can scale the resources during the rise to manage, and get back to normal when it has gone less.

Cloud Hosting is a plan which fits for all sizes and offers Managed and Unmanaged Hosting similar to Virtual Private Server.

Dedicated Server

Users of websites, specifically E-Commerce, with a big budget and great traffic, seeking great performance should go for Dedicated Server.

With Dedicated Server, you are going to have a boom in your Website’s performance, which implies quick loading of the website and no navigation and page loading errors.

You get an entire server to yourself, without the need to share resources(like shared hosting) or limit yourself to a virtual partition(like a VPS).

Like VPS and Cloud Hosting, Dedicated Servers are both Managed and Unmanaged.

The only point which makes Dedicated Server, a much thought after plan is its Cost. Even the cheapest Dedicated Servers costs $100 a month and going a bit high can easily go up to more than $300 per month.
