In our last blog entry titles “VDS VPS” we talked about the difference between VDS and VPS, what types of virtualization technology Solar VPS utilizes for our dedicated virtual server hosting and why virtual private server web hosting is no difference then virtual dedicated server web hosting solutions. In today’s article we want to talk about the benefits of VDS Hosting, or VDS Web Hosting, over dynamic dedicated servers and standard dedicated server hosting.
1. VDS VPS Price vs. Dedicated Server Hosting Price
The main benefit of utilizing a virtual private server vs. dedicated server solutions can be found in the month to month pricing of both web hosting services. For customers using dedicated servers, web hosting solutions can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars per month. The price on dedicated servers is so high because the hosting company is allowing a customer to rent a full physical server fully dedicated to their needs. Instead of purchasing a small bit of that server (this is what a VPS is), dedicated server hosting encompasses renting out a full physical server to meet the consumers web hosting goals.On the other hand, VPS’s (also called virtual dedicated servers or virtual dedicated server hosting) offers clients the ability to purchase a virtual piece of the same pie. Instead of renting out an entire server to meet their needs,virtual dedicated hostproviders supply consumers with a piece of an overall pie, full with resources, to meet their web hosting needs. This solutions is cheaper for the consumer and allows for more clientele for the virtual dedicated host.
2. The Cloud
Unless you have been living under a rock on Mars, you have heard of the Cloud. The Cloud is a marketing term made up by web hosting marketers to make virtual private server web hosting sound pretty. But the truth is the Cloud is VPS hosting. The Cloud is information stored on a virtual dedicated server located in a third party datacenter installed with the highest level of server knowledge and server security.Through the Cloud, users have the ability to access their needed information from anywhere in the world with a steady Internet connection. Virtual server hosting in the Cloud allows you to steam content from halfway around the world, securely protect data behind professional firewalls and sync data across mobile devices almost instantaneously. With dedicated server web hosting, this just isn’t possible.
