Running your own virtual private server (VPS) was once restricted to either lucrative side projects or those with money to burn. The comparatively high regular costs made it too exclusive for personal projects that didn’t produce income and more significant endeavours often used dedicated hardware, leaving VPS with the rep of optional extra that wasn’t taken seriously.
Today VPS hosting is both inexpensive enough for personal projects and dependable enough for serious ones. With VPS hosting, you have an entire server at your disposal. Of course, it is a virtual server, but in all but the most punishing use cases, it will work just as well as dedicated hardware. In fact, numerous high-end VPS choices sometimes outstrip low-end dedicated hardware. The main benefit of dedicated hardware these days is that it offers total control.
Of course, if you just want to introduce a new WordPress blog to the world, then you don’t need dedicated hardware or a VPS at all, you only need a web host. While VPS hosting can be set up to host web applications, they’re going to take more work and more familiarity with Linux and networking. So if you’re looking for guidance along the way such as help with installing web servers, configuring firewalls or setting up apps, then VPS may not be the right choice.
If you’re a web developer looking to enlarge your server admin know-how or a start-up that needs a more dependable, and powerful set-up, VPS hosting offers a low-priced, scalable way to get your app into the data centre.
A VPS means you have (comparatively) total control over the structure and can do things like compile Nginx with precisely the units you want, run OpenVPN to avoid geo IP restrictions, or even set up your own video game server for multiplayer.
Aside from rivalries, the ever-lower costs of buying VPS hosting are also driven by the developments in virtualisation software that have been pending in the last few years too.
