VPS vs. hosting (shared hosting)?

Before starting to know the difference between these two, lets find out what they mean.

What is Shared Hosting?
If you want to understand share hosting, think about living in an apartment and sharing it with others. The washroom, parking lot, kitchen almost everything is shared by all the occupants of the apartment. The same is the case with shared hosting.

In shared hosting, you have to share all the critical resources of your server like CPU speed, hard disk storage, and memory with all the other clients who have also purchased the same plan as you have.

What are the conditions when you should choose Shared Hosting?

For blog building
For personal site
Start a small to average-sized company website
Low budget
Nave in web development


Beginner-friendly solution
Standardized setup
No technical expertise needed
Least expensive


Often gives less bandwidth
Less storage than VPS
High traffic might create errors
Limited access to the back end
No root access

What is VPS?
The concept here is the same as the shared hosting, but in VPS, you are assigned to a separate part with a separate washroom, kitchen, and parking space in the same big apartment. You are virtually assigned a section on the physical server with virtual boundaries.

The added benefit here is that no other tenant can use the resources assigned to you. So you are unaffected by the traffic of different clients on your physical hosting server.

When to choose VPS Hosting?

When you want to expand the existing business it in the future
You got a more substantial budget.
You deem necessary to invest in your site.
Expect high-traffic in the future.


Root access to your server
More memory
More bandwidth
Easily scalable
Unaffected by other sites traffic
Stable and faster


Higher price
Need technical expertise

Shared Hosting vs. VPS Hosting:

Lets have a comparison between these two.

Security and Performance
You are comparatively less secure when its about shared hosting. When a single sight on the shared server gets affected by some error, all the other sites will also become prone to suffer.

But when its about VPS, you dont get any trouble when the other websites suffer from any error, or even a significant load in traffic on other sites are unable to cause you any harm.

Shred hosting does not allow you the root access to the server and all the other resources. You cannot install or edit anything on the server, and you also have less control over the changes in your website.

VPS gives you full access and complete control by providing you the root access to the server. You can even install your operating system and any software to increase the speed of your website.

VPS hosting is responsive to change, and you can easily scare the resources according to your demands and requirements. When your existing business requires more resources to handle the increasing traffic, you can easily enhance all the capabilities.

Shared hosting is a limited version of hosting the website if you own a small business and dont seem to grow in the immediate future than this service is right for you.

VPS is comparatively costly to the shared hosting.

All the small businesses and low traffic websites go for the less expensive shared hosting. And the security-conscious growing businesses always tend to prefer the VPS if you also do click here.
