There are different types of hosting today – shared hosting, offshore VPS hosting and dedicated hosting would be most known one. This report is aimed to assist you select most suitable hosting type for your organization. Shared hosting is good for users that do not have especially needs, who usually utilize standard technologies and do not have many hits on its server every day less than 3000 is definitely ok. But if you use some exceptional technology which usually is not supported by shared hosting providers, than you need to select VPS or dedicated server. VPS and dedicated, no matter what people say, are rather similar. When one works together, he probably does not see difference. The only frequently visible distinction is that with a few VPS technology you cannot change the kernel of its operating system.
Some offshore VPS hosting could be even quicker than dedicated hosting. Quality offshore VPS hosting providers puts up to 16 users on one computer. That computer could be much faster than average dedicated server with double and quad processors/cores nowadays, likely with 8 or 16 processors/cores in future. It may be four to eight time more computation power than cheap dedicated server. Using that data it seems you will get 1/2 to 1/16 of computation power of dedicated server. But, in practice if your VPS provider does not do overselling of the physical nodes it may be better, as most users will not use a lot of the computation power. Additionally, other users will have peak in use, but all that would allow your VPS more computation resources if needed, so in practice you have the ability to achieve almost same performances like dedicated server. But, do not forget that some offshore hosting ignore DMCA providers do overselling and they use cheap servers as bodily nodes as quickly as crappy dedicated servers and place many approx. 50 or 100 users on a single physical computer and performances become degraded.
To conclude, if shared hosting do not suit your needs as you need special software, faster response or more computation power, first thing one needs to think about is offshore VPS hosting. If you are quite sure that you need really major computation power have many users, likely more than 10000 per day and you have budget – you should go with great dedicated server to achieve superior performances as possible.
