What is better VPS or VIP hosting?
Hi! I see VIP rates/plans offered on different hosting sites. We used to be on the simple shared hosting plan for a long time, then used VPS. We didn`t like the problems that appeared with the new server configuration. Do you think we should upgrade to the VIP plans? (Improved performance compared to usual hosting).Solutions (2)Hi! VIP plans may only give you a temporary solution to the problem. Lack of resources can come up again. There is only one solution - to move on to VPS. If you don`t like to configur it by yourself there is another solution for you. For example, our company AdminVPS provides free basic administration of all services. You just need to order a VPS and contact tech support to transfer your site. Our specialists will perform the transfer and set up of VPS for you.

Hi! VDS/VPS is always better than shared hosting, whether it is the usual rate or VIP. On VPS you are not dependent on the neighbors for the server, and you can make any software configuration. More resources are usually allocated for the site compared with standard shared hosting. On VPS, our Help Desk can set the control panel for free and you change the server settings without having skills in site management. And, we can always help with free advice on what and how to set up.Answers (2)Hi! If resources of the usual shared hosting plans are not enough for you, of course, you should move on to the VIP plan.Hi! VIP hosting is nothing more than a marketing trick. We would need more detailed information on what service is offered by the hoster. In any case, the virtual server will give you room to maneuver if you suddenly need to expand the resources again. For example, our plan using Cloud KVM SSD allows to add resources at any time. There are guaranteed resources which will only be used by you. Unlike SHARED hosting, where everything is together, and often on the same IP.

We highly recommend not to purchase the cheapest hosting package. Usually, they come with a row of issues: the server is often down, the hardware is outdated, lousy and slow support, registration and payment errors, etc.
For your convenience, we have created a tool that can help you to choose the right hosting package for you just by answering a few simple questions.
CMS is a content management system. A lot of hosting providers offer so-called CMS optimized packages. However, this is a marketing trick because most CMSs do not have special software or hosting requirements.
Trial period is a period of time, usually from 7 to 30 days, during which you can use the hosting services for free to test them.
Moneyback policy allows the customer to receive a refund for his order within a certain period after the purchase.
OS means the operating system is installed on the server. We recommend to choose Linux hosting unless your website requires another OS.
Bulletproof hosting - it’s a type of service that allows to host almost any type of content, even the restricted one (adult content, warez, spam etc). Bulletproof hosting providers do not remove your content in case someone reports an abuse.
Unlimited hosting - refers to companies that provide packages with unlimited disk space, bandwidth, number of domains, databases or email accounts, etc. This is usually a marketing trick but sometimes you can find something worth a try.
Secure hosting - it’s a type of service when the hosting provider is mostly responsible for the security of the user’s account: updates the software installed on their servers, provides an antivirus and malware scanner, firewalls and basic anti-DDoS protection, etc.
DDoS-protected hosting - companies that provide packages that include anti-DDoS protection. These packages are considerably more expensive than regular ones. Nevertheless, they’re totally worth their price because the company will ensure that your website is secured from cyber attacks.
Most websites require MySQL and PHP installed on the server to work correctly. Almost all hosting providers support these technologies.
ASP.NET is a Microsoft web application development platform.
The more comfortable the control panel is, the easier will it be for you to change the website and hosting account settings.
Most hosting providers that are in TOP20 in our rating offer user-friendly control panels, such as cPanel, Plesk or DirectAdmin. That’s why we recommend to pay attention to other, more important parameters, while choosing a hosting provider.
