Virtual Private Server

Considerable Price difference between Virtual Private Server and a dedicated server

Depending on the Virtual Private Server you are looking at and the dedicated server you are looking at there can be a considerable price difference. The reason for the price difference is that there are usually 10 or more customers sharing the resources and therefore the expense of the hardware where with a dedicated server it is only one person paying for it. A Virtual Private Server is a great way to get the security and privacy of a dedicated server at a fraction of the cost.


In a Virtual Private Server more than one customers sharing the resources so it is less expensive.


The Dedicated Hosting environment provides an exclusive server or servers devoted solely to your web site. You do not share a server with other customers, as with shared hosting.

Virtual Private Server more secure than a shared server

A Virtual Private Server is more secure than a shared server due to how the file system is setup. Even though you are sharing CPU, memory, and network connectivity you do not share the same file system. This means if someone else’s virtual server gets broken into there is no way they can go from that virtual file system onto your virtual file system. In a shared system there is only one file system and users can go anywhere they want on it to see who else is on there so if someone were to break into a site on a shared system they would have access to all the sites on the server.
