Shared Hosting vs. Private Hosting Benefits of a virtual server over shared hosting include:
Direct Root Access – VS gives customer root access to the system so they install, modify, and configure their own applications. In a shared hosting environment, server settings are set at a “standard level” to address the needs of a large customer base, which is not flexible in addressing the unique needs of individual customers.
Security – Unlike a shared hosting environment where customers with shell access can potentially browse through others’ files and data, customers are not able to access each others file systems and data in a VS environment with our VPN solution.
Resource Independent – Customers in a VS environment are not affected by the actions of others, so when a customer crashes his own environment, you are not affected as in a shared environment because you have complete resource isolation, which prevents your own environment from crashing. Additionally, you have your own dedicated resources so you’re not at the mercy of having to compete for resources as you do in a shared hosting environment.
Performance – Our hardware is built using top of the line products from the leaders in the industry. Thus, our VS customers can feel confident that they are getting the best resources that money can buy. Our commitment is to continue to push the envelope and stay ahead of the technology curve because we are providing customers with the look and feel of a stand alone server. Thus, VS customers can have the peace of mind that they will continue to receive the latest and greatest in hardware server components. In a shared hosting environment, offering the best in hardware and servers isn’t a priority for hosting companies. Most shared hosting companies are content to provide their customers with a baseline server platform that can last 5 to 7 years, which is evidenced by the performance issues many shared hosting customers face.
Dynamic Resource Allocation – Unlike a shared hosting environment, VS customers can tap into additional resources as they need without affecting others. This can be done because customers are allocated their own dedicated resources instead of sharing resources. Thus, websites and applications can perform at an optimal speed without a risk of degradation. Optimal Number of Users – Most shared hosting environments have an “over-subscription” of users/network environment on a single shared server.
These forces users to compete for resources and, in many cases, resources are spread thin and overtaxed. In a VS environment, the total number and type of users is balanced to create an optimal number of users/network environment on a VS so that resources are adequately spread among them. This avoids any possibility of “over-subscription” and over-taxation of resources.
