What is VPS Hosting?
VPS Hosting is a virtual machine sold as a service by an Internet hosting service like GB Network Solutions. A VPS runs its own copy of an operating system, and customers may have super user-level access to that operating system instance, so they can install almost any software that runs on that OS.
With VPS Hosting, you effectively get a full server with complete control. The VPS offers you complete control over the software configuration as well as allocated RAM and CPU, so you have a much more flexible and powerful solution.
Not only that, you have a much more scalable solution. Because our VPS is cloud-based you can add as many resources as you need, when you need them. If you want more CPU, RAM, or Disk space, you can just add it as you need it.
Unless you are building extremely demanding websites that are going to be processing huge volumes of traffic, a VPS solution should be perfect for the foreseeable future.
A VPS also requires more technical knowledge. That means you would need to configure the server security settings on setup and then perform normal housekeeping tasks such as updating the Operating System Kernel to the latest version, removing unwanted packages, installation, and configuration of firewall, and other ongoing security related activities.
If this doesn’t sound like something you want to do, then you could let us do it all for you as we offer a full VPS Management Service for FREE at GB Network Solutions.
