    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 dont 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 doesnt 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.

      Because your users do not have to queue with other sites' visitors to access yours, a VPS hosting plan is nearly always faster than a shared hosting plan.

      Consider a carnival with a variety of food sellers; if everyone had to queue in the same food place to go to each vendor, the wait would take far longer than if each food stand had its line. VPS hosting provides additional computing resources and processing capacity, which improves the speed of most websites and increases the likelihood of conversion. If your site isn't too large, a shared hosting package will probably suffice. You'll undoubtedly notice the difference if your site is larger or relied on for business and income growth.

      Numerous websites could potentially overload the server in a shared hosting environment. A VPS is hosted in its environment, so you don't have to worry about other accounts interfering with your site's access.

        A VPS gives you direct root access to your server allowing you to install a control panel such as cPanel and start setting up your own websites in WHM.


          VPS hosting acts similarly to regular private hosting. A VPS server exists in a shared hosting environment, but you get server space dedicated specifically to you and your business. You won’t get any of the pitfalls associated with shared hosting, but you also won’t get the high cost associated with private servers.

          With shared hosting, you have to share bandwidth space with other users. As a result, you may experience slower speeds than you would experience with VPS, especially during peak hours. You’ll also get a limited amount of disk space and accounts. As a result, you have limited scalability. For single-person businesses or partnerships that don’t plan to expand, shared hosting can work well. However, for businesses that want to plan for growth, VPS hosting has far fewer limitations to get in the way of expansion.

          The shared nature of this option can leave your company vulnerable to hackers and other security issues. VPS hosting, on the other hand, gives you the security that comes from having your own dedicated space.
