Dedicated Servers Vs. Virtual Private Servers

The solution is highly scalable and extremely cost effective (you only pay for the services you use). This combination is great for growing websites, professional bloggers or small to medium sized businesses that simply dont have the money to spend on a few dedicated servers however know they need specific Cloud Hosting resource allocations. It has to be noted, price will vary dependent on provider, chosen Cloud solution operating systems and resource allocation, but a great VPS provider, like our friends over at Solar VPS start their Linux VPS at $17.50 per month. $17.50 per month is a small price to pay for a professional WordPress website or ecommerce site which could potentially bring in hefty numbers due to ad revenues and sales.With all this being true, why would a small to medium sized business want to invest their money in dedicated servers over a Windows VPS or an Amazon VPS? Dedicated Servers Provide Power, Resources and Privacy With VPS reviews singing the praises of Linux and Windows Virtual Private Servers, why in the world would a professional blogger, an ecommerce website or a small to medium sized business invest their money in dedicated servers? The answer: Resources, Power and Privacy. First things first, a VPS is shared hosting. Cloud hosting, unless you are utilizing a private Cloud infrastructure, is shared hosting. Think of the previously mentioned pie. Whereas VPS hosting is shared web hosting, dedicated servers are stand-alone hosting. Think of the pie again however this time, dont cut the pie into slices. With a dedicated server, the entire pie is yours to utilize. This means you can have greater hosting resources (unmetered dedicated servers come to mind) and at the same time, know your web hosting space is your own space, not to be shared with anyone else. In a world full of frights and perils, Windows Dedicated Servers and Linux Dedicated Servers provide the end user with security and lots of resources. What of Dedicated Server Pricing? Web Hosting for Dedicated Servers and Virtual Private Servers The truth of the matter is, dedicated servers are more expensive to purchase and maintain then their virtual private server counterparts. It goes without saying but since dedicated servers utilize an entire server and provide greater resource allocations for the end user, dedicated servers are more costly than Linux or Windows VPS Cloud Hosting. Although dedicated servers tend to be more pricey than their cloud computing brethren, dedicated servers are great for larger companies, enterprise level businesses and small to medium sized businesses growing at an exponential rate. So, Cloud Hosting VPS or Dedicated Server Hosting? Now, although we highly recommend our DedicatedNOW solutions and the Solar VPS Cloud Hosting solutions, we would be remiss not to tell you to look at some dedicated server reviews and VPS reviews before making your choice in which hosting platform you want to utilize.

Virtual Server can act as dedicated private server.

Users can install any software on server and re-install operating system through web-based control panel in 3 min. VPS also allows users to make full backup of their server and restore it at any time through their control panel.

Original Press Release USA Zanadoo Offers More Efficient, Lower Cost Alternative to Dedicated Server with New VPS Service SAN DIEGO, March 25 -- Zanadoo Web hosting has introduced the Virtual Private Server, VPS, as an efficient, lower cost alternative for clients who need a dedicated server, but don't want to incur the high costs associated with the environment, and don't want to require someone to be on site to physically make changes at the data center. "Dedicated servers typically cost $100 per month," explains John Rodriguez, vice president of Zanadoo. "However, a dedicated server provides the necessary performance and privacy to larger web sites or customers who need a dedicated server. On a dedicated server, if the customer wants to re-install the operating system, someone physically has to go to the data center and install the operating system for them. That's a drawback that a lot of companies don't want." VPS creates a virtual server environment that acts as private server without the high cost or need to physically make changes at a data center. The VPS creates a virtual server environment where multiple dedicated environments can get placed on a single server. This allows customers to pay less money and get the same benefits of a dedicated server. A customer gets root access and can install any software they want and also get the power of a dedicated server. "This is not at all like shared hosting though," stressed Rodriguez. VPS allows multiple dedicated environments to get placed on a single server. The customer gets root access and can install any software they want and also get the power of a dedicated server. It's completely different from shared hosting." Additionally, since the server is virtual, the customer can re-install the operating system through a Web-based control panel at any time in a matter of three minutes. Since multiple customers are on a single physical VPS server, customers get benefits such as RAID 10 and high amounts of ram that would cost around $1,000 per month for a dedicated server. A VPS also allows the customer to make a full backup of their server and restore it at any time through their control panel.
