What is a Virtual Private Server (VPS) ?
VPS are powerful computer systems for hosting, which host websites or software apps so multiple users can access them at once. Like other computers, servers have certain performance characteristics, for example, the memory, the hard drive and the power of the processors. A virtual server, also known as a vServer or VPS (Virtual Private Server), works according to the same principle. However, a virtual server does not use dedicated hardware, like a hard drive or CPU, rather it accesses one or more parts of certain hardware resources. This means a VPS has some performance characteristics that differ from those of a physical server. For example, the virtual hard drive capacity can be spread over various hard drives, or only use a part of a physical hard drive.
How do I upgrade my VPS?
The server virtualisation from MS IT Solutions is an affordable and powerful solution for beginners with small to medium sized projects – from websites to online shops and database applications. As not every project requires the same capacities, you can choose between different package sizes. The main difference between them is the size of the virtual memory and the hard drive capacity. At the start of your project, when its dimensions are still relatively small, the hardware capacity of the beginner virtual server package may be enough for you. This delivers high performance with all the important features, comprehensive server security and reliable availability at an affordable price. With time, as your business or project grows, you may require higher capacities. Our vServers grow with your needs..
Why do I need a VPS?
VPS hosting sits in the intersection of shared hosting and Cloud VPS. Unlike shared hosting, VPS is an isolated environment with dedicated resources, which means you have more processing power and your site loads faster. VPS is best suited for applications that have seasonal traffic spikes or RAM-heavy/CPU-intensive applications. If you are developing a new application that has a complex database and you’re not sure how many visits you’ll get, VPS hosting is the affordable option to start with before you upgrade to a dedicated server.
Which operating system can I configure with a Virtual Private Server?
