When is the right time to switch from shared hosting to a VPS?

Do you utilize one of our shared hosting plans? When should shared hosting be upgraded to a vps? You should understand the distinction between a shared hosting plan and a vps plan before we begin.

Shared Hosting Plans
These are the web hosting packages that we offer at the lowest prices. Multiple users share one physical server and its resources when they use shared web hosting. Customers that don’t get a lot of inbound traffic are advised to use it. There are almost all of the pre-installed tools and modules needed for common web applications. This makes building a new website rather simple.

VPS Hosting Plans

Virtual Private Servers (VPSs) are platforms for shared servers that imitate all the features and capabilities of dedicated servers. Customers will have complete access and administrative rights and it will have its own operating system. This implies that you can tailor your virtual private server whatever you like.

  1. When you have heavy incoming traffic – It’s time for an update if you are receiving hundreds of thousands of hits every day. Perhaps it’s time for your website to move out of shared space and into its own location. Moving to a VPS is frequently the answer when a site’s performance suffers due to increased incoming traffic.
  2. If you take your SEO ranking seriously – You might be curious about the connection between shared hosting and SEO positioning. A shared hosting plan indicates that you are not the only user on the server. There could be hundreds of other websites, and the majority of them have the same shared IP as your website. Your SEO score will be marginally impacted if other sites with a bad reputation are utilizing the same IP.
  3. Customization – A shared hosting plan won’t allow you to increase its available resources, like as RAM or CPU cores. What happens if your program demands more resources? To overcome these restrictions, switch to a VPS platform. With our vps plans, there are a ton of customizing choices accessible. Operating system, control panels, RAM capacity, and hard disk space are some of these options. The resources can also be upgraded or downgraded whenever you like.
  4. If you require full server administration access – You might want to install additional tools or modules in certain circumstances. A customer won’t be able to carry out these tasks in a shared hosting environment because they require full administrator access. You should switch to a virtual private server if you need administrative access. All of our VPS Plans come with full administrative access. (“Administrator” access for Windows and “Root” access for Linux)
  5. If Dedicated IPs are required – Because no other domains or customers will be utilizing your dedicated IP, that is the fundamental justification for getting one. More security will be given to you as a result, and the bad behavior of other customers won’t have an impact on you.
  6. When you require more security –┬áServers used for shared hosting are safe and secure. However, the server hosts a vast amount of data from other clients, which occasionally may jeopardize the server’s security. With a virtual private server, you may add more firewalls, set up more security controls, and generally increase security.
  7. E-commerce Website – In this case, a VPS package will be a superior investment regardless of how big or little the e-commerce site is. With a VPS, you’ll enjoy improved speed, dedicated IPs, security, dependability, and uptime. If your business depends on your website, each of these criteria is crucial.

It is simple to switch from shared hosting to a vps package. You can get assistance from our support staff with the migration and initial setup.
