Why Use A VPS For Hosting

The web has become a more interactive place. The option for simple HTML sites ranking well isn’t there. With most websites built on dynamic platforms and frameworks such as WordPress (40% of websites) shared hosting isn’t the option it was.

Shared hosting puts you on a managed server with a thousand other sites. This makes you more vulnerable to hackers, as well as allowing the reputation of the unknown hosted sites to affect yours. Also stretching thin the shared resources. Shared hosting on average can only sustain 10 visitors at a time. This leaves you without the capacity to server search engine crawlers as mose manke many connections. Though $5 a month seems great, it can leave your site ineffective.

The other option is Managed WordPress or other framework and platform specific hosting. Managed hosting starts at $30 and averages $50 a month. At $600 a year that isn’t affordable for most. Our recommended option is Virtual Private Servers. The average website can run off a $5 plan and server over 250k visitors a day. The catch is VPS hosting is a blank server with no software and as such carries an initial setup fee. At $450 one time plus $5/mo. A VPS first year is $510 and then $60 a year after that. Small savings at first but major long term.

Unlike other types of hosting a Virtual Private Server gives us full control of the software. We can deploy better security and optimizations.

We also employ intrusion protection software to to block the IPs attempting to repeatedly access administration, email or other sensitive services.

In case of WordPress site the guaranteed resources of a VPS allows us to setup a second web application firewall to block attempts to access WordPress admin areas, as well as constantly monitor WordPress’s files against the official repository to make sure nothing has been changed or corrupted by hackers, and in the case of such an event immediately revert the files and hack back to the correct code.

Being able to run any software on a virtual private server also allows us a wide variety of optimisations. We setup server image optimization software to run regularly and shrink the size of images without changing the quality, making for faster load times. The average load time of our sites on VPS hosting is 500 milliseconds vs shared hostings 3 to 5 seconds to load. This can boost conversions and traffic by 60% to 80%.

A Solution To Grow With

Virtual private servers can grow with your business. For $5 a month you can run several sites and apps easily, but as your business and traffic grows so can your VPS. Inseconds the RAM, CPU and Storage can be increased  (or decreased) to fill demand. Increasing your VPS capacity costs only a few dollars more a month. Shared and managed hosting can’t usually be expanded requiring you to open a second account and have your site moved, both a costly and time consuming project at times.

The Necessity Of VPS Hosting With eCommerce 

Running an online store? With shipping calculations, package tracking and credit card processing eCommerce requires a bit more power and stability that a VPS can bring. Less errors or slow loading encountered by customers means more completed checkouts. Virtual private servers allow for more automation with your eCommerce saving you both time and money. The better security provided also means less chance of being the source of data leaks or credit card leaks. Even though platforms like Stripe.com remotely process transactions and never store cards on your server, A malicious script implanted by a hacker could still be used to capture this information. Virtual private servers can be set up with antivirus, and other security solutions to help prevent these issues. Many shared and managed hosting shares encryption certificates with all the sites hosted on the server. This and other issues can allow the vulnerability in someone else’s site to allow hackers access to yours and your customer data. Nothing like a data breach to kill customer trust. With a VPS you are not vulnerable to other security issues as you are hosted privately and isolated from others.
