 Virtual Private Server vs Dedicated Hosting

The two top of the range hosting options for customers are dedicated hosting and VPS hosting. Both have their own pros and cons in terms of performance, price, and allocated resources for web hosting needs. If your website has grown in terms of traffic and revenue, then you may consider either VPS or dedicated. Let us discuss both herein:




1. VPS hosting

With a VPS hosting account, you get access to shared CPU with other virtual machines, but guaranteed access to specified RAM and storage. A VPS server is flexible and often more economical as compared with dedicated server. In terms of control and customization, VPS and dedicated server can be rebooted and further modules/software can be installed easily as provide by your web hosting service provider. Here is a snapshot of VPS hosting:

  • Economical price than dedicated servers
  • Flexibility to grow as your site grows
  • No technical limitations in terms of domain hosting
  • Assigned control over RAM and storage
  • Shared CPU resources with other virtual machines
  • Click script installation, backups, SSL certificates, etc.


2.Dedicated Servers

Dedicated server provides the power, flexibility and complete control over the CPU resources that you can use. If you are looking for the best hosting solution with robust server speed and flexibility, the dedicated hosting is for you. As with VPS plans, dedicated hosting prices also vary in terms of storage capacity, RAM and disk speed. It is the most powerful website hosting plan available and the one providing complete control to the customer. Here is a snapshot of dedicated hosting:

  1. 100% control over computer resources

  2. Your computer resources never get shared with anyone else

  3. Heavy upfront costs and investments to setup a dedicated server

  4. Extremely powerful and fast

  5. 1-click script installation, backups, SSL certificates, etc.



When choosing in between VPS and dedicated hosting, cost is the biggest determining factor. If you are just experiencing growth on your website, it is recommended to get VPS hosting, which shares similar benefits of dedicated hosting and is also nominally priced. On the other hand, if you own a large website with millions of page views per month, you would want dedicated hosting with complete control over your computer resources. An average high-end dedicated hosting is not less than $500 per month, whereas VPS plans start from as low as $15.00. Hence, considering the sheer costs of setting up a dedicated server, VPS hosting is a good choice for small to medium sized businesses looking for economical hosting solutions.
