VDS Hosting Services Offer Advanced Features that Greatly Enhance Your Online Experience

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

People quickly get used to good things, often forgetting the time when they had to cope without them. There was a time when website owners on shared hosting had no other option but to migrate to dedicated hosting when their website’s size and popularity grew. But the price difference was tremendous. And still is to this day. Moving from a shared hosting plan to a dedicated plan is like going from a single-engine prop plane to a fighter jet where performance and price are remarkably different.

Now with the latest emerging virtualization technology, web hosting providers can bridge the gap between shared hosting and dedicated hosting by offering virtual dedicated server (VDS) hosting. VDS hosting has become a perfect, cost-effective migration platform for websites that have simply outgrown their shared hosting services. Website owners have started embracing this new type of hosting because it gives them performance on par with dedicated hosting, but with a much more appealing price tag.

But what exactly made VDS hosting so popular among small to medium-sized (SMB) and even larger businesses, webmasters, and private individuals? This article explores VDS hosting and its peculiarities, details the benefits of VDS hosting over other types of hosting, and explains the perfect time you should start looking for a good VDS hosting solution and migrate your website from shared hosting.

With success comes growth in the business world. Growth usually means businesses begin looking for a bigger place to accommodate their increasing needs and growing workforce. Similarly, when your website success and popularity grow, you will need to look for a bigger, better hosting solution with more resources to accommodate your website’s growth. If you started off with shared hosting, like many businesses and private individuals do, then you have two options you can choose – virtual dedicated server (VDS) hosting and dedicated hosting.

While dedicated hosting is the pinnacle of web hosting, its price is simply too much for most small to medium-sized businesses. Not only that, dedicated hosting may even be an impractical choice since VDS hosting offers almost the same features but with a much lower impact on your budget. VDS hosting is a significant advancement over shared hosting surpassing shared hosting in every aspect. And VDS hosting is also a cost-effective alternative to dedicated hosting.

VDS hosting strikes a perfect balance between shared hosting and dedicated hosting and is therefore a perfect choice for businesses that need an advanced hosting solution to migrate to without having to spend a lot on dedicated hosting.

Advantages of ASP.NET Web Hosting Services vs. Linux Web Hosting

Saturday, February 5th, 2011

As the two most popular server operating systems, Windows and Linux each offer their own advantages. ASP.NET lets websites run the newest, most interactive content. While Windows allows for ASP.NET web hosting, Access databases, and other proprietary Windows applications, Linux offers lower costs, more versatile customization, and a multitude of evolving applications.

These differences, however, are not as clear-cut as they might first appear. ASP.NET, for example, can run on the Linux platform. While Linux is not a “free” solution, it is sometimes portrayed as a more cost-effective hosting solution. And in some cases, may be more expensive to run than Windows servers. However, Windows-based server hosting makes a lot more sense for small, medium, and large businesses, particularly if they have dynamic applications that best run in an ASP.NET hosting environment and minimal time to spend on server management.
