    Is VPS Hosting Faster than Shared?

    I am a bit confused that how VPS hosting is faster than the Shared hosting. So, can you help with the same?

    VPS hosting has several advantages over shared hosting. Though both the hosting platforms have many websites that are sharing the server, the number of websites is likely to be present in shared hosting. The key difference between both of them is VPS gives more stability, customizability, and scalability. Shared hosting, on the other hand, is not scalable and every user gets only a limited share of resources like bandwidth, memory, server space.

    The speed of VPS hosting depends usually on the bandwidth being offered and this depends on the type of websites that are being hosted.

    In case the sites in a shared hosting platform are small, then even a shared hosting service can prove to be highly efficient and fast. If there are large resources then these might slow down the shard hosting platform also.

    Another criterion that holds an impact on server speed is the tools that are used. If the host is implementing tools like SSD in place of an HDD, CDNs or cache servers are used, then the even shared hosting can prove to be faster.

    However, these issues donít occur with VPS hosting as each of the hosting accounts has a set of dedicated resources. If there is a large resource-consuming website, then it doesnít have any impact on other websites. VPS needs the customers to have a requirement of the technical expertise of the consumers in order to configure the server for meeting their business needs.

    The performance of the server, (shared or VPS) depends solely on the hosting service provider. Some providers often overload the server for giving a poor performance.
