5 Tips To Help You Purchase The Best VPS Hosting

Author : JackJ Reynolds

VPS hosting is a situation when the hosting company divides one server into different partitions to make each partition an individual server. These partitions then serve as a dedicated server for businesses having financial constraints. Just like dedicated hosting, VPS allows business owners to have a private server with large assigned resources and install applications and tools according to the demands of their website.

Generally, VPS is safer than shared hosting as different websites operate on different servers. However, like all other types of hosting, it is important to be careful while purchasing VPS web hosting. Some important tips to purchase the best VPS hosting are given below.

1. Managed or Unmanaged

Before making a selection, jot down your preferences. You need to know if you can maintain your VPS yourself or not. If you have the required technical knowledge, managing VPS might be easy for you. However, for new users, this would be a time consuming and complex task. In such a case, you may opt for managed VPS which will allow you to save time by adding software, performing maintenance and organizing the VPS. However, managed VPS is a little expensive and you may need to consider your financial constraints as well.

2. CPanel

If you are a new user and do not have the necessary knowledge on website development, make sure the hosting company offers CPanel or any other known administration tool to help you manage and build your website. CPanel is commonly used control panel which allows amateurs to create and modify their websites as easily as possible. Also, understand that CPanel software does not come with the VPS hosting and businesses need to pay additional costs for its license.

3. Operating System

Generally, hosting companies allow clients to choose their own operating system for VPS web hosting. While making a selection of the operating system, be sure to consider all important elements. Windows is easy to use and costly as compared to Linux which is complicated yet free. Also, if you plan on adding specific tools and applications, you need to know the compatibility of the OS with other software programs.

4. Additional Features and Costs

While making the selection, make it a habit to look for price details. Sometimes, hosting companies offer flexible VPS hosting plans which allow business owners to upgrade the package at additional charges. Search for such flexible plans as they prove to be beneficial when website needs grow.

5. Server Quality

Before the selection, carry out a research on the physical quality of the server. Hosting companies which make use of branded hardware are known to provide better performance and consistency than those with assembled servers. Also look for the computing power of the server. Generally, 16 core servers are an assurance of reliable services.

Although you might be cash strapped now and must be looking for cheap alternatives to dedicated hosting, make sure you do not select a hosting company which offers you low cost VPS hosting, but is not reliable at all. Hence, try to make a sound investment decision regarding your hosting provider.
