What is VPS?

VPS offers an environment that promises high availability, and extreme scalability. Both of these give you more up-time, and better speeds, which will bring your site more visibility, meaning more visitors and higher revenue.

If you are still hosted on a share hosted server and outgrow the shared hosting limits, it is time to consider switching to VPS. Why? VPS gives your site more room to grow. It allows you to personalize the way in which, the server functions that you never expect these features from a shared server. You have complete control and install or configure its software as they require. They are the best choice for businesses that need more control over their hosting environment than shared hosting can offer and expect to have a significant number of daily visitors.
Many people weren’t aware why they have little daily visitors and one of the root cause might be due to slow websites on an overpopulated shared hosting server.

Virtual private server scales easily than shared hosting. When business grows, the resources available to a VPS can be increased to accommodate growing loads. One of the  growing pains faced by rapidly expanding businesses is caused by not being able to smoothly scale their online infrastructure. Choosing a virtual private server from the start makes it much easier for the infrastructure to be scaled in line with business growth.

Dedicated Environment

VPS uses OpenVZ with ploop (disk loopback block device) can run several different virtualized operating systems on same server. Each virtualized operating system acts as if it was a dedicated server allows you to have the benefits of a dedicated server at a fraction of the cost.

Dedicated IP Address

VPS has dedicated IP address. Unlike shared hosting, hundreds of websites are hosted on a Shared server as well as yours on the same IP. If one of the site flagged as a malicious one or the actual IP address of the server was blacklisted due to possible spamming activity of one of the users, you will be affected.


Scalability of a VPS is another area Shared hosting is not able to match. Increasing memory, disk space and cpu is a breeze and uninterrupted upgrade process without the need for a reboot, downtime due to traffic spikes and critical websites and application remain available at all times for online visitors.

Full ROOT access

Vastspace provides full root access to VPS subscribers. Having root access to the server gives you the ability to take complete control of your VPS. You can then use it for almost anything including hosting multiple websites, third party applications, game servers, e-commerce software and etc.

No Sharing of Mail Queue

Shared hosting mail service gateway is usually on high load during peak hours, process thousands of emails, screening for malware and viruses and marking SPAMs. These processes tend to delay incoming and outgoing emails. In addition, it’s common for service providers to apply rate limit the numbers of emails can be sent hourly for each domain and block access to volume senders on a shared hosted server.

Security and Privacy

Shared hosting clients’ website are more prone to attacks. Hackers who upload malware, malicious codes or sites in the server and can be injected to a server through vulnerabilities of one site and cross infect other sites hosted on the same server. VPS containers are secure, isolated Linux containers and each container performs and executes exactly like a stand-alone server for better security.

Resource Allocation

Unlike Shared hosting, service providers state concise specifications on how much CPU core, RAM, disk space and monthly traffic allocation for their VPS plans.

Custom Configuration

VPS is highly configurable especially ideal for application requires fine tuning and tweaking on PHP, MySQL and Web services.
