Not open for further replies.


Hello. I am a relative novice at this but I see that the forum is full of expertise, and I have always wondered what the difference between a dedicated and VPS , apart from the fact that the server is DEDICATED and not shared, which I think will be the principal. A good VPS is better than a low-end DEDICATED? Is it better to have 20 pages on 1 only have 2 dedicated or VPS with 10 pages each? 1 Is it better with 2 IP'so two dedicated vps? so I can be me all morning ..... I guess like everything else, it depends, but I would like some expert horientación, some general horientación.

Thanks in advance.

  • In general it depends on your needs, what you offer and what you include. I'll give an example. Better a VPS which your provider performs a dedicated remote that makes backups on the same machine backups. It is also preferable powerful vps to a dedicated few resources. All depends on the price, resources, additional services, .... Also think vps licenses tend to be cheaper but also potentially has devoted greater capacity. My advice is that there are things that you should not play, and others can rate but no better than you have to give priority to a ua another thing. That and with the data you give, say this is better than the other is talk.
    In basic, dedicated server is a whole server computer to yourself. On the other hand, a VPS is a virtualized server inside a dedicated server.
    Resources are assigned using a virtualization Openvz , KVM, Vmware and more in VPS but in a dedicated server all the resources are owned by you.
    You get a share of resources from a physical node in a VPS plan but it don't happen with a dedicated server.
    Resource violation by a user of VPS node could impact other users.
    A dedicated hosting may be a hosting procedure on that a server is devoted for one and solely website. VPS the resources of the server will be split between different websites or hosting accounts. VPS is that the abbreviation type of Virtual Private Server.
    VPS Hosting is nearly perpetually more cost-effective than exploitation Dedicated Hosting for your web site since you do not get your own instrumentation, and since of this, you furthermore might sometimes get fewer resources. Once deciding between the 2 kinds of hosting, you will need to contemplate the kind of web site you are running along side quantifiability. One of the largest factors in deciding if you ought to decide on VPS Hosting or Dedicated Hosting is what style of resources your web site can would like. If you have aforesaid affirmative to at least one or a lot of these queries, you ought to most likely powerfully take into account Dedicated Hosting. With Dedicated Hosting, you'll be able to discovered your hosting server to own the process power, storage and information measure you may need. Further, you will not need to worry concerning alternative sites swiftness yours down or preparation from your resources.

    It's also necessary to contemplate if you may eventually answer affirmative to those queries. If you've got a web site that may need major resources within the not too distant future, you'll realize it best to start out with the kind of hosting you will need instead of making an attempt to migrate your web site from a VPS host to an ardent server. VPS Hosting can typically permit you to proportion, however there is a limit to the quantity of resources you'll need access to with this kind of hosting.
    Hi :D

    Simply dedicated servers are physically hosted in data centres and they are "dedicated" to you and only you. So with a dedicated server you get full control and you can customize it as much as you want. Also if you want a server with high performance to host, for instance, websites with heavy traffic, dedicated servers are the way to go.

    VPS or Virtual Private Servers are of course virtual machines. And they're not entirely dedicated to you. A VPS is a virtual space that can host multiple users by splitting the resources among them. You don't really share the same resources with the other users (as is the case in shared hosting) but the entire virtual server space is split into small private spaces for each user (therefore, the available resources will not be shared, but split). Customization however will be restricted to a certain limit, unlike dedicated servers.

    However, naturally dedicated servers are much more expensive than VPS and if you do not necessarily want a high performing server to say, host a website with or expecting heavy traffic, you don't have to spend for a dedicated server. Get a VPS :)

    Hope this helped
    dediacted server you full control with its all complete wide range option incliuding system modification of your choice whether VPS is part of dedicated server
    What is better - definitely can not be said. It all depends on the site and project. It is important that the support does not fail and the pricing policy of the servers was appropriate.
    In simple words, VPS is similar to a dedicated server, the only thing is you will be owning a part of the server’s resources. But in the dedicated server, you will be offered with the entire server.

  • A Dedicated Server (also known as Physical or Bare Metal server) is an actual tangible and physical server, that is, a big computer located on some place in the world that can be used for a customer/user to host stuff (be it web hosting, game servers, backup services, etc).

    A Virtual Private Server or VPS (sometimes referred as Cloud Server by some providers) is a virtual space, that is, a space created with software that includes OS, dedicated storage space and resources as if it were a physical server, but actually is like 'emulated' inside a real computer.

    The advantage of a Virtual server is that there can be many virtualizations on a same server, so it's cheaper than a real physical server, the disadvantage is that it shares resources and it may be slower than a dedicated server.
