Choosing a hosting package tailor-fit your need is serious business. You can’t afford downtimes, you lose customers and users to top it all – lost revenues. Ask me have if I ever experience downtime with my web hosting service? It’s absolutely a big YES.
Let me share to you my experience. I had my site up and running smoothly, installed the necessary and complaint plugins, updated core files to latest and applied best security practices as possible and a few months later when I checked – I could not believe what I saw; my site injected with spam links hidden in the footer, to make matters worse, the site defaced and it lasted for 3 straight days.
I’ve compared lately VPS against Shared hosting. But wait, if you think virtual private server hosting is costly then, think again it’s not.
And here’s why.
Important points to consider:
virtual private server plans offered at affordable monthly rates providing you total control and power of a dedicated hosting.
virtual private server hosting offers better security. When an offending web application or malicious file is found it can be remedied easily because it is separated from the other virtual servers. Tests can be done thoroughly before moving it securely, thus, giving you a peace of mind.
shared hosting – a lot of users are using the same resource on the same machine, when an offending application goes rogue all the web service experience downtime. Technical support is below than par.
Invest in VPS and get your money’s worth.
