Virtual private server is the best option for SMEs and startup companies because the only best thing about this hosting process is the affordability or low price. Though, the price of a virtual private server depends on site’s storage, technology, and bandwidth requirements. In some cases hosting organizations offer free hosting in the return for displaying advertisements from the web hosting organization. The question arises, is a VPS safe?
Organizations which are only concerned about the hosting prices and left with no choice may opt for VPS hosting but you should be aware of potential problems as well.
Why Hosting Your Website on a VPS is risky?
We all know that one server is shared by many websites, so it is important to know your neighbor or other websites which have share along with you. It is not good when you share an IP address with any adult site or spam site. It raises a warning flag with search engines. In most of the cases, adult sites try to false search engines to avail undeserved high ranking.
Before giving a nod to a VPS web hosting plan, one should investigate all web hosting terms and conditions to check which sites are allowed to be registered on that particular server. An organization should also ask whether they are been offered individual IP addresses or not. You should make sure that issues like IP address and domain name resolve completely before you jump upon promoting the site.
Finally, if you are hiring virtual private server hosting, you will face slower server for sure. In a VPS hosting, a server receives the requests for files and it only serves up those files according priority. Thus, a VPS user always faces uptime problem and other issues.
These are the basic issues with a virtual private server hosting. If you still consider it as a great option, then you must hire the service. It is suggested that you should only rely on a reputed hosting provider and not all.
