Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

What is a VPS (Virtual Private Server)?

A virtual private server (VPS) is a virtual machine that replicates the experience of a dedicated physical server. A physical server is “virtually” split so that multiple users can create their own virtual servers on a physical server. Although multiple VPSs are hosted on one physical server, each VPS is completely private and can run independent operating systems and has its own dedicated storage. Many VPS hosting solutions offer dedicated CPU, or for low traffic applications, users can choose a VPS with shared CPU at a lower cost. VPS hosting is more cost-effective for the majority of organizations than buying, configuring and maintaining physical servers. Additionally, users can quickly scale their virtual private servers by either adding storage to a single VPS or creating additional VPS instances with their preferred VPS provider.

What is the difference between VPS and shared hosting?

Shared hosting is another popular method of hosting websites and applications and differs from VPS hosting in some important ways. With shared hosting, a user shares most of the resources, including memory and CPU, with other websites or applications on the host. This can lead to a decrease in performance if another application experiences an increase in traffic. Using a shared hosting solution also does not provide users with root access to the server, which means you have less control over your server. VPS hosting provides users with a fully dedicated virtual server with root access. Although your VPS is on the same physical machine as other virtual private servers, you have much more control over the configuration of the server and do not have to share resources with others.

For which projects can I use VPS hosting?

VPS hosting is private, secure and provides users with dedicated resources and control over their virtual machines. Almost any type of website or application can benefit from using VPS hosting today, especially when using a provider like centron, which offers a range of options for CPU-intensive, memory-intensive and disk space-intensive applications. While very low-traffic applications such as personal websites can utilize shared hosting solutions, VPS hosting offers all users more control over their server configurations. Some common applications for VPS hosting include:

  • Website and blog hosting
  • eCommerce stores
  • video streaming
  • Gaming platforms
  • Software as a service solutions
  • databases
  • Microservices
  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence
