Your questions answered
What are the differences between a web hosting plan and a VPS?
Shared hosting is the perfect solution for people who aren’t tech gurus, but want to launch a website. The environment is pre-configured with a limited number of supported programming languages, to meet the most common use cases. Unlike shared hosting, a VPS gives you a standalone hosting space with total freedom in terms of how you manage your environment. Once you have chosen your operating system, you can configure it to suit your needs. This solution is perfect if you are looking for a specific configuration for your project, or if you want to perform tests.
How do I choose between a VPS and a dedicated server?
There are two main differences between a VPS and a dedicated server: the type and volume of resources. A VPS is a virtual machine deployed on the basis of a physical server. A dedicated server is a physical machine with no software layer. This comparison concretely demonstrates the difference in resource allocation for these solutions. A VPS offers an allocated portion of the physical server’s resources, which makes it a perfect solution for controlled projects that do not require high volumes of resources to work. A dedicated server offers all the physical server’s hardware resources, whether you need them all or not. For a specific project with a small budget, a low-cost VPS server is the best solution, and delivers all the performance you need. You can always add resources to your virtual server as required, without needing to change machines or perform a migration.
What is a VPS?
By definition, a VPS (virtual private server) is a non-physical computing server. VPS deployment involves installing virtualization software on a physical server, so it can be partitioned into several virtual servers. This means the physical server’s hardware resources are divided between each VPS. There are many advantages to using virtualization technology. It offers a lot of flexibility, since it is easy to add resources as required without having to migrate to another server. Like a standard server, a VPS includes an operating system and software you can use to make your own server environment. You can host many different types of web project on it, such as applications and websites. A VPS is a solution usually offered by a web hosting company, or a cloud computing service provider.
How do I choose a low-cost VPS?
Picking the most affordable VPS for your project is an easy process. Contrary to what one might think, the first element to consider is not the price, but the services offered. This is the criteria that will determine the most suitable server. Evaluate the services required for your application or test environment to work properly: RAM, storage space, network capacity, processor, etc. Next, identify the additional services that could make your VPS the best option for your project. Backup options, anti-DDoS protection, external disk space, availability and location are just some of the things to consider. Once you have determined your requirements, simply select the lowest-price VPS that ticks all your boxes. Ensure there are no hidden costs when you use your low-cost VPS server, as some cloud hosting companies will add them. At OVHcloud, traffic is included and unlimited*, so billing is transparent.

What are the advantages of a VPS?
The virtual aspect of a VPS is what sets it apart from other solutions, and makes it a flexible option when it comes to adding resources. This means you can keep your resources as closely in line as possible with your needs, and only pay for what you use. A VPS can be scaled to suit your project’s growth. Since users are free to choose the operating system (Linux or Windows), software and programming languages they use, it is well-suited to a wide range of use cases. From hosting applications and websites to databases, pre-production and production environments, the possibilities are endless.
