What is VPS?
A VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. A VPS is a combination of dedicated hosting and shared hosting but on a virtual environment. In shared hosting one shares, the resources with other hosting accounts on the same server while in dedicated hosting the entire server and its resources are only utilized for your website. Most of the businesses do not usually acquire a dedicated server as it is quite expensive and may not really use that much amount of power and thus end up using a shared server. Although a shared server is an affordable option, it may not meet the expected amount of performance and security that a dedicated server delivers.
Therefore, to bridge the gap between the two, a VPS server is perfect for a website that needs dedicated resources at an affordable cost. In a VPS you get full control of the server, with desired privacy, resources and customization. So, your website developed in Magento doesn’t have to share any resources with other users.
Moreover, a VPS server provides access to your preferred choice of operating system. At MilesWeb, they provide powerful Linux VPS hosting and Windows VPS hosting platform which are fully managed and serves the fastest performance.
