Many developers and administrators of up-and-coming web sites are confronted with the difficult task of ensuring a smooth transition from basic shared web hosting to more capable hosting plans. Adding to the difficulty of choosing the right hosting plan, webmasters need to weigh in the economic aspect of the problem, and decide if the investment in an expensive dedicated server is truly necessary.
One solution that has become popular in recent years is virtual dedicated server (VDS) hosting, also known as virtual private server (VPS) hosting. VDS hosting is a service that combines the affordability of shared hosting plans with the performance offered by dedicated servers. WebECS’ recently published article, Windows VDS Hosting Provides the Best Combination of Performance and Affordability for your Hosting Needs, explores the benefits of hosting a site or web application on a VDS.
The article describes how virtualization technology works, explains the advantages of VDS hosting, and describes why Windows is the best operating system for running a virtual private server. You will learn how VPS hosting uses powerful virtualization techniques to minimize costs while offering performance parameters that are similar to more expensive dedicated servers.
