Dedicated Hosting vs VPS Hosting

Dedicated Hosting vs VPS Hosting: What's the Difference?

What are the main differences between a dedicated server and a virtual private server (VPS)? There are a number of advantages of having a dedicated server for your business. The main features that a dedicated hosting plan offers include:

  • Dedicated hardware and resources
  • Full control with root access
  • Improved performance

Dedicated Hardware and Resources

With a dedicated server, all of the hardware is solely yours to use. Resources are not shared with any other users, since the machine is dedicated to only you. There are no virtual drives or containers for others to use. Since there are no shared resources or hardware, you can install applications as you see fit, without affecting others. This also allows you to take your dedicated server to its limits without worrying about limiting your application or website.

Full Control with Root Access

With root access to your dedicated server, you can modify the machine as you want when you want. Modify server side files, change system settings, and install new applications as you see fit.

Improved Performance

Since the server is dedicated for your use and you have full control of how programs behave, server performance is faster. You won't have to worry about the server slowing down because of another customer heavily loading the CPU and RAM.
