    Vps is fast enough?


    I redesigned my site using WordPress and am interested to change my webhost...
    My site has a small traffic and is not expected to change
    which leads to that bandwidth or traffic spikes does not worry me.

    I wonder whether it makes sense to move over to the vps because of the need for speed.
    Or no sense that pays 4 times more for a site with low traffic
    Does anyone know about what the difference is in speed for shared vs VPS.
    How time is VPS really faster?

    For a low traffic site shared hosting will probably be faster than a cheap VPS.

    Hello,

    It depends on the VPS and Shared hosting accounts. VPS hosting should return the page more faster, but main issue regardsing fast response is usually related with the hosting location and your customers. If by example you have UK based customers then UK based server will be more faster than US based one.

    Well if you need more speed for your site then you can buy vps because vps is a lot faster than shared. Look shared servers are made when VPS is devided into small parts to all users of those shared servers on VPS use same connection.

    I think that VPS is faster, but you might not notice change (it might be tiny speed improvement). I would not loose time with VPS setup just for one low visit site, unless you like computers and want to learn command line

    I would suggest trying a shared server 1st - since you are low volume - and it is easy to upgrade if need be.
    All that stuff depends on several things
    cpu speed - memory - configuration, etc.
    you really need to compare specs for differing hosts on VPS.

    I think you should go with Xen or KVM vps, just make sure that server memory are not oversell.

    Its your wish


    I would say it depends on your choice. If money is not a factor for you, then you can take VPS or if you think that your website will be larger after some months and at that time you don't want to shift your hosting or upgrade your plan, then you can take VPS. Otherwise, if you are not very serious about your website/blog then you may stick with your shared web hosting plan.

    For your help, if you want to take VPS then I suggest you to try Rackspace, Amazon or Atlantic. I have heard that Atlantic.net is offering $15 free trial credit for new users on their cloud solutions. May be you can check VPS speed by taking this free trial.

    Hope it helps.

    Itís hard to say which one is faster. Ever if there is little bit difference you might not notice anything at all. If have such problem with shared hosting I would switch to different hosting company rather to move VPS hosing.

    VPS is really faster than shared hosting.
    And if a VPS provider (a2hosting, for example) has SSD technology, you will see that load speed is much faster.

    If your website has low traffic than shared hosting is one of the good option for your website than VPS.

    If your traffic is low, you can just use shared hosting than VPS. Or you may use new technology, Cloud hosting. It will bring more reliability, scability to your site.

    It depends on your traffic. If you have low traffic, then I would recommend shared hosting to start off with.

    You can always upgrade to a VPS later.
