VPS vs Shared vs Dedicated

Postby Doogle » Mon Sep 10, 2012 3:32 pm

I understand the difference between the three.

Why would you bother to go with a VPS over shared hosting.

Surely you would have to be hosting an awful lot of sites to make having a VPS worthwhile?

Does anyone here have a VPS? Guess it would be useful for certain things, maybe mail servers and stuff, but just for hosting websites? Surely a decent shared hosting package is much better value for money...

Normally shared hosting is fine.

It's when you start attracting more traffic or generating much larger user bases when a VPS comes in incredibly useful.

It's a case of invest when you need to! Shared hosting will be perfect for most websites. Infinitely better value for 98% of people.

I tottally agree with this. I once considered aquiring VPS but when I sat down and thought about it, there would have been no clear advantages and my wallet would have been significantly lighter!!
