Virtual Private Server Myths Debunked

Anytime there is a change in operation and technology, skeptics and cynics alike come out of the woodwork to challenge the disruption to the status quo. That’s fine, since it makes the product or service stronger through a bit of a testing phase. There is a shift right now from people and companies going from dedicated servers to virtual private servers (VPS).
A VPS is a more cost-effective way to have a web hosting server compared to a dedicated server with nearly the same performance. But there are a few concerns that have been raised about the value and production of a VPS.
Critics of VPSs talk about how maintenance issues are the biggest things holding a VPS back as compared to a dedicated server. As vmblog.com reports, “As each website has its own operating system and other software, it is very difficult for a web host to maintain all the operating systems while ensuring maximum uptime. There are many factors attached to it like security, maintenance and updates.” A reputable VPS provider will have no trouble with this issue. The VPSs are compatible with multiple operating systems and have no problem keeping up with uptime and the different software options.
VPS blogger David Marshall wrote, “Sometimes the hosting provider does not provide the allocated resources. This is because most of the time virtual server does not use its full resources.” Providers like VPS6.net provides the necessary and allocated resources and the VPSs use their full resources so that is never an issue.
The last main point critics of VPSs argue is that security is an issue. With backup support and encryption-enhanced technology, security breaks don’t happen and any software failures don’t affect the safety of your VPS.
