A web site that has outgrown shared hosting will benefit from VPS hosting. It is a good problem to have if your website needs more resources than our Shared or Business Hosting can provide you and Hostwinds makes a very strong effort to help you continue to grow and be successful. We make the migration easy for you to a VPS server and using a Tier 3 or Tier 4 with a cPanel license should be pretty familiar to most Hostwinds Shared or Business Hosting clients. Hostwinds VPS services are a good choice to keep your website growing and successful in today’s Cloud first world.
You’ll also Benefit from the Following Features:
Similarly, in a real dedicated server, you will pay for the entire server that is not shared with anyone else. You will get complete control over all services. Unfortunately, it is also the most expensive hosting option and needs some technical expertise to manage. It is commonly used by those who have websites with specific scenarios, most commonly extremely high traffic and tight security requirements.
Each of these stack layers contain I/O routes for anonymous public network requests that must be penetration-tested by web security professionals. Users on managed plans can expect the hosting company to keep all of the web server stack software updated with security patches, while website owners under unmanaged plans will need to keep these aspects up-to-date personally.
Hostinger provides a 6-tier plan for their VPS hosting services, which you can choose to fit the needs of your website. Their Plan 1 offers the basic specs with 1,000 GB (aka 1TB) of bandwidth, 20 GB of disk space, and about 1 GB of RAMs. If you want more, you can opt for Plan 6 which gives you a whopping 8 GB of RAM, 160 GB of disk space and 6,000 GB of bandwidth.
InMotion Hosting is refreshingly different. Its baseline VPS-1000HA-S plan doesn't have the most eye-catching price at $27.99 per month over two years, but it's easy to see why the company asks this much. The product has a better specification – 4GB RAM, 75GB storage, 4TB bandwidth, 3 dedicated IPs – than some high-end plans from other providers, backups and a cPanel licence are included for free, and there's a 90-day money-back guarantee.
Virtualization is a framework or methodology of dividing the resources of a computer into multiple execution environments. Virtualization techniques create multiple isolated partitions (Virtual Machines (VM) or Virtual Private Servers (VPS)) on a single physical server. There are several kinds of virtualization techniques which provide similar features but differ in the degree of abstraction and the methods used for virtualization.
Most services on a VPS have to be publicly visible all the time and unnecessary services should be disabled anyway, so a firewall is not as useful as you might think. Nevertheless, a firewall helps to protect against some types of denial of service (DoS) attack and is needed by fail2ban if you use that to block brute force attacks. Firewalld is set up and enabled by default by Webmin and needs no further configuration - it works for IPv6 as well as IPv4.
It is rumored that Linux servers are more secure than Windows. Well, it depends on who implements security enhancements on a VPS. There is plenty of information on the Internet about securing both Windows and Linux servers. One of the Windows server weak spots, Active Directory, can be protected using several simple steps; Linux distros have SELinux control system and other security tools. It is possible to maintain a decent level of security on any platform; however, it requires server administration skills.
You will need to change the Domain Name System (DNS) settings to point to each new site that is added to your VPS - this is how the human-readable website addresses and email addresses get translated into machine-readable IP addresses. Each DNS change can take 24 hours or more to propagate around the worldwide DNS network. If you're impatient you can access the site in "preview" mode at Virtualmin > Services > Preview Website or you can access the site directly by IP address (by entering an address like https://192.0.2.0 in your web browser) or you can modify the "hosts" file on your computer (on Windows this is usually located at C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts, on a Mac it's at /etc/hosts and you need to be an administrator in both cases).
With cloud hosting, you don’t use a single server but rather a cluster that runs in the cloud. Each server in the cluster stores an up-to-date copy of your website. When one of the servers is too busy, the cluster automatically redirects the traffic to a less one. As a result, cloud hosting comes with no downtime, as there’s always a server in the cluster that can serve the requests of your website visitors.
