What is VPS hosting vs web hosting?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 3:57 pm

When someone decides to start a small business, one of the first decisions they have to make is whether to use a VPS hosting service or a web hosting service.

VPS hosting is a more expensive option, but it offers a number of advantages that web hosting does not. VPS hosting provides a dedicated server, which means that you have full control over the hardware and software that powers your site.

PRO TIP: VPS hosting and web hosting are two very different services. VPS hosting is a virtual private server that can be used to host websites. Web hosting, on the other hand, is a service that allows you to host your website on a web server.

You can also install any software you need without having to worry about affecting other sites on the server.

Additionally, VPS hosting allows you to run multiple websites on the same server. This is not possible with web hosting, which is why it is often used by business owners who have a need to have separate sites for their business, personal website, and a blog.

The main disadvantage of VPS hosting is that it can be more expensive than web hosting. Additionally, some VPS hosting services do not allow you to install software that is not provided by the provider.
