If your website is growing busier and busier and demanding more resources than shared or reseller hosting can supply, you may be ready for an upgrade. If you cannot afford a dedicated server at this point but require the same performance and stability, then VPS (virtual private server) hosting may be the best solution for you.
VPS hosting offers you the features of dedicated server but it’s more to a dedicated server being shared by a few other tenants. It means, it is not shared by as many other websites as a shared hosting in a physical server. A reliable hosting provider will have the maximum amount of tenants in a physical server to a certain degree so that the resources of the server can fully support the minimum resources allocated for every client. Just like a dedicated server, you can have access to all configuration files within your account which means a greater ability for you to install and run custom software should you choose to.
Canadian Web Hosting is one of the many VPS hosting providers. They offer two type of VPS hosting; Linux VPS and Windows VPS hosting. You can get Linux VPS hosting for as low as $35.95(Canadian Dollar) per month, while Windows VPS for $85.40 per month with free setup fee. You’ll be provided with an operating system (you can choose from different OS like CentOS, Debian, Fedora, Redhat, SUSE or Windows 2008), your own allocation of RAM memory, plus large space and bandwidth resources. You get full control of your root access, choose the programs you want to install and even install them yourself if you prefer. You can even reboot, back up and restore the VPS server yourself.
VPS hosting are a great solution for businesses that have outgrown shared hosting, but aren’t quite in need of a dedicated server. They’re designed to provide greater security, increased bandwidth and more control and privacy than shared hosting at an affordable price.
