When you start your activity, you are led to ask yourself what type of hosting to choose in Pakistan. Most of the time, for a question of budget, you choose a best shared web hosting offer. Only after a few months do you run the risk of running out of available resources, especially if the project set up takes the form of an e-commerce site whose catalog is growing more and more. In this case VPS hosting may turn out to be the best alternative in terms of security, options and price.
What is a VPS?
In the context of VPS hosting in Pakistan, a physical machine is divided into several virtual compartments. Each compartment works independently and contains everything you need to allow you to host your own sites.
When a shared web hosting offer hosts several sites (clients) on the same operating system, a VPS (or compartment) allows you to host your sites on your own operating system. As other clients are compartmentalized, they are unlikely to influence the performance of your hosting. You therefore have access to the resources for which you have paid. Each VPS client has full access to the delivered system (SSH root access), making it the equivalent of a dedicated server for a much more affordable price.
How does a VPS differ from a shared or a dedicated server?
Shared hosting in Lahore can be understood by the same analogy as if your roommates decide to throw a party, you have no choice but to wait for it to end.
In the same way on a shared server, the resources (processor, memory, etc.) are being shared with other clients, if one of them starts to consume a lot of resources, your site will be slowed down and vice versa. In fact, our shared servers are protected against this kind of problem, large consumers of resources are detected and we suggest they change their subscription.
A dedicated server comes down to owning your own apartment, no convenience sharing constraints, only you are the only one to assume the costs.
A dedicated server will therefore be much more expensive and its administration also more complex. Especially since most hosts do not offer a real outsourcing service, or at very high prices.
VPS is located halfway between shared and dedicated. In some ways we can say that it combines the advantages of each. The ease of pooling and the independence of the dedicated. A VPS is cheaper than a dedicated and in many ways better than a shared one.
Each VPS should be seen as a compartmentalized system, a compartmentalized environment. Each of its environments offers independent access to your site. No chance that another customer will come and slow down your system.
When should we consider switching to a VPS?
As long as your site continues to collect rather low traffic, you can continue to keep your shared hosting and at the same time a small budget.
As traffic increases, most shared hosting services lose stability. Your site can become slow.
This is when your site is beyond the capabilities of the machine that it is time to consider a VPS. Most hosting providers inform their customers when they have exceeded their quota of available resources. They then offer you to upgrade your formula to a VPS. The only drawback is that the transition from a shared to a VPS often involves having to move either its sites.
