Your website is a valuable asset to your business, no matter the size of your company or the industry you are in. Your website may be used to direct potential leads to a contact form, sell products online, or simply as a marketing tool to convey business presence online. Whatever the purpose of your website, choose a hosting provider that can give you the hosting services that you need, at a price that your business can afford.
In an effort to maximize the value of a Cloud VPS (virtual private server), many businesses search for cheap VPS hosting because after all, the less money that a company spends on hosting, the more money that can be invested in the business to earn a profit. However, remember that just as you want to keep costs low and maximize profit, so does your VPS host. That’s why it is important to research VPS hosting providers to ensure their service quality is up to standards with what your business requires.
One area where some lower quality hosting providers try to save money is on their data center infrastructure. For example, a cheap VPS host may not see the need to maintain a redundant network, because they do not see it critical to day-to-day operations. However, without a highly redundant, secure, and well-connected network infrastructure, your website could experience downtime, lags, and not function properly. How much of a risk are you willing to take regarding your website and hosted applications?
Another major problem when using a low quality or cheap VPS host is that they may oversell VPS platforms, making one physical host machine run too many customers, causing server crashes and/or poor server performance. These hosting providers are depending on the unlikelihood of every VPS account using their full resource allocation all at once. However, once performance demands meet the capacity of the server, your website and applications will be reduced to a slow, unresponsive mess.
