Dedicated servers, virtual private servers, what’s the difference? Is one better than the other or does it depend on the type of business you own and what type of web hosting you need for your website? These are all questions that business owners ask themselves when choosing a hosting plan for their website. For some, the answer is simple, but for others, they need to do some research first to be sure they are choosing the hosting plan that is right for them.
Here at Webreger.com, we offer both dedicated servers and virtual private servers. Both are excellent options for any business website but the choice depends on what you need and what you want to spend. Let’s take a look at both and see which one might be the better option for you.
Virtual Private Server
A virtual private server offers service that is often split between different hosting accounts or websites. With a virtual private server, you have many options available from high-end, expensive packages, to low-end options that don’t cost very much and are perfect for the budget minded business owner. Without the ability to customize the hosting package, a VPS is much easier to set up and can be used for basic websites that don’t need the extras.
A dedicated server is a server that is dedicated to your own personal use. You have the rights to all of the resources of the server enabling you to configure the hosting environment to suit your needs. A dedicated server is best for websites that see a higher volume of visitors every month and is ideal for businesses that have an IT staff on hand to optimize the server as needed.
Choosing whether you need a dedicated server or a virtual private server is based on the needs of your website. If your website doesn’t see many visitors, a virtual private server could be right for you. If you want to grow your business or your business is already seeing more than 500,000 visitors per month, choose a dedicated server. Both have their benefits and you can learn more about which server is right for your business by contacting Webreger.com and let one of our professionals assist you and answer any questions you might have.
