The top perks of hosting a website on a VPS

Whether you want to create a personal website, a presentation page for your business, an online store, or even host a SaaS (Software as a Service), choosing a hosting service for your new website is a crucial decision. Although there is a wide variety of web hosting providers available, you need to take into account resource requirements, accessibility and configuration options, the number of visitors, and their location in order to realize the full potential of your new online project.

1. Better performance

A VPS (Virtual Private Server) provides you with a dedicated portion of a physical server, which means you have more processing power and RAM available. This translates to faster loading times for your website and a better experience for your visitors. Website speed is one of the biggest factors taken into account by search engines when ranking so it should be a priority for your hosting needs.

2. Dedicated resources

While shared web hosting servers allocate resources among multiple websites, a VPS provides you with dedicated resources, ensuring that you always have access to the amount of resources you’ve paid for. This relieves you from concerns about server overcrowding by the hosting provider and peak traffic moments when all neighboring sites might slow down your website’s performance.

3. Better SEO

Since the rules for optimizing your website’s position in search engines are not publicly available, they primarily rely on a set of best practices to ensure online visibility. A VPS offers several advantages in this regard, such as faster loading speed, dedicated IP, customized web server configuration, dedicated resources, and the absence of potentially harmful neighbors. These factors contribute to an improved position for your website in the Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs).

4. Your own IP address

Virtual Private Servers (VPS) typically come with their own dedicated IP address. On the internet, IP addresses have their own reputation, which significantly affects your website’s reputation with search engines, antivirus programs, and anti-spam solutions. Having your own IP address helps protect your website’s reputation from potential neighbors who may engage in activities that are penalized by Google and other relevant entities.

5. Configurable

Certainly, a simple presentation page can exist on most web servers, but a web platform requires various specific configurations. From specific versions, modules, and PHP configurations to running scripts written in various backend languages like Python, scheduling CRON jobs at any interval needed, running a Node.js server, and many other examples can be configured on a VPS without any restrictions because you have access to a complete operating system.

6. Better security

Because you have your own isolated hosting environment on a VPS, you are better protected against attacks and vulnerabilities that can affect websites hosted on a shared server. Additionally, you have access to a wide range of additional security options offered by any Linux-based operating system. Examples include custom firewall rules, additional DDoS protection implementation, SSL certificates, custom SSH authentication, VPN installation, and many other security measures to enhance the safety of your VPS-hosted website.

7. Scalable

Any good website will typically grow its audience with each passing month. Eventually, the website will require additional processing power and RAM to deliver each web page to users while maintaining fast browsing speeds. A VPS allows you to adjust server resources in real-time based on your needs. You can upgrade or downgrade your VPS to handle fluctuating traffic effectively.

8. Unlimited hosting

With your own virtual server, you are not subject to the limitations imposed by web hosting providers. As a result, you can host as many domains, subdomains, databases, and email accounts as you want, as long as you have enough resources to support them.

9. Geolocation

A server located physically closer to website visitors indeed guarantees shorter loading times, which enhances the user experience and improves search engine rankings. Furthermore, geolocation can aid in local and national SEO rankings.

10. Operating system of your choice and root access

You can select the operating system of your choice for your VPS server, allowing you to configure the entire environment required for your web platform according to your specific requirements. With root (administrator) access to your VPS server, you have complete control over the operating system and can make advanced modifications when necessary.


Indeed, the cost of a VPS is higher than that of a shared hosting plan, but considering the advantages and positive impact that a Virtual Private Server can have on a website, including the online presence of a business, it is a highly valuable investment.
