In today’s era, the internet plays an extremely vital role in the day to day life of every computer user. Be it obtaining information of any sort or socializing on the social media, the World Wide Web offers it all. With so much of digitization happening around, the internet is the first place a person lands to be it booking a travel, reaching out on unexpected emergency situations, grasping more knowledge about a particular topic or maintaining contact with good old friends.
This has resulted in the development of thousands of websites across the globe to facilitate services in a much easier and digitized approach, provide information and do business. The websites that require large bandwidth majorly look for VPS Hosting, rather than shared hosting. Let us see in brief about VPS Hosting.
What is VPS Hosting?
VPS Hosting stands for Virtual Private Server hosting and is a virtualized server. One can say that VPS Hosting depicts a dedicated server within a shared hosting atmosphere. Technically, VPS is both dedicated hosting and shared hosting. It proves to provide better services than the shared hosting as you have a private space on the same server eradicating all the unwanted downtimes and disturbances of the other websites hosted on the same server.
It is just one of the various kinds of web hosting available in order to make your website live and going. It is mandatory to have the website files that you would like to be live on the web server. Purchasing and managing a server can be an expensive affair and it is advised to rent some private space on a server making it convenient and affordable for a common man to have their website online.
The three kings of hosting; viz; Shared hosting, VPS Hosting and Dedicated Server hosting are all similar in the fact that they allow you to run your website. They differ in the way they setup, the features at offer and how can you customize each of them.
There are many companies in the market that offer VPS Hosting in India. Therefore, it becomes important to wisely choose the provider who would prove to be ideal for your website. There are many factors that could be taken into consideration like price, features, bandwidth, etc. Let’s now dig into the services and features of two top notch companies providing VPS Hosting; MilesWeb and HostGator.
