Shared hosting was briefly discussed above, but it’s worth delving a little more. When you use shared hosting, you rent space on a real server that is being used by a number of other people. Although the server is divided among users, it is possible that other websites on the same server may have an impact on your site.
You continue to share a physical server with other users while using a VPS hosting package. The underlying technology, however, is very different. A virtual private server (VPS) uses a hypervisor. By doing this, you can be confident that you’ll always have access to the server resources that are assured to be available as per your hosting plan.
VPS is an excellent option after you’ve reached the boundaries of shared hosting, which is a great place to start. Additionally, VPS hosting offers the bonus of being able to grow with your website.
