Need Help Deciding on a Dedicated Server or VPS?
Which server is right for you?
Which is the server path you should trod down?
To help answer that question, you should look at what your hosting requirements are. Are you running multiplie databases from multiple hosting accounts using hardware intensive software platforms? If so, then a dedicated server might be for you.
If however, your tasks are less demanding and your server won't pull resources from others on the server, then renting a VPS should be the way to go. The table below compares the two:
You are still sharing server hardware with other users. However, you server is virtualized which means it runs as though it is on a dedicated server. That means you can restart services, make modifications to server files, and create other user hosting accounts.
You are on your own here. The entire server is yours to play with. That means all the hardware specs (CPU, RAM, data transfer, etc.) are yours. Also, you can have more flexibility with hardware setups. For example, need an extra 500GB of storage? Then this could added by the support team for an additional fee.
You are allowed to use any software program of your choice. However, we suggest to use one of our FREE 1-click Pre-Built Optimized Configurations (Standard, WordPress, or PHP) to speed up your server and avoid abuse of resource allocations. We will notify you if you are pulling on too many resources, especially other VPS customers', and of slowed performance prior to a necessary suspension.
Regardless of how your software programs perform, you are free to install any programs you please. A high resource program will not affect others expcept for any clients you are managing.
Given the hardware specs and freedom you get on a VPS, the performance boost on a VPS is more budget friendly.
More expensive than VPS hosting because you do get your own server and better specs.
