Choosing the right web server for your business can be a daunting task and even when you have a server in place there are times when the service provided is just not working for you. If you are looking for a cost effective yet comprehensive server solution then why not consider a Virtual Private Server (or VPS).
It is an ideal solution for those looking to host a virtual server with the security and privacy of a separate physical computer server. Each VPS can use it’s own operating system and has the possibility of independent rebooting. Virtual Private Server’s are particularly effective set-ups for web designers, resellers, short-term developments or multiple single site installations. If you’re looking to find out exactly how a VPS could help your business then read on.
A Virtual Private Server is ideal for your business if server flexibility is important. You will have the opportunity to choose the operating system environment that is right for your needs, whether they be Linux or Windows based. You are able to install whatever software is required meaning you can have all the tools and applications your business needs in one secure virtual location.
Most VPS systems include user friendly interface Plesk for easy to understand server controls and navigation. Plesk allows for full control of your VPS from one control panel and login destination with the provision of multiple log-in user types including: administrator, reseller, client, domain owner and mail user. Plesk controlled VPS’s also allow full customisation of the user interface which is great for company branding. Domains, websites, tools and mail accounts are also accessible and easy to manage.
One of the greatest advantages of a Virtual Private Server is the enhanced security. As each VPS is isolated from another there is a minimised likelihood of hackers or other customers being able to access your files and applications. The separation of server accounts also reduces the risk of malicious attacks (such as DoS attacks) targeted at other users. Plus, the usual server firewalls and security implementations should be included with any legitimate VPS supplier.
Support and Resources
When purchasing from any good hosting provider a VPS will come along with continues support and resources too. Whether that be in the form of telephone support or comprehensive user guides and information. Support should be provided for both hardware and software use meaning that any VPS issues you experience at any point will be sorted promptly.
