When To Shift to VPS or a Dedicated Server ?

When is it appropriate to upgrade from a Shared Hosting plan to a VPS or even a Dedicated Server. Below is a breakdown of certain scenarios where you should definitely consider a VPS over your Shared Hosting account.

  • Your cron jobs are not finishing due to resource usage and PHP timeouts.
  • Resource limits are being reached on a consistent basis.
  • Your sites require non default configurations.
  • There are bursts of traffic to your sites with many concurrent users.
  • You have an online store with several hundred products.

    These are general guidelines for when you may need to upgrade. Of course there are several more reasons that would warrant a need to upgrade.

Even if you have a new or smaller site, it’s always a good idea to remain prepared for growth. That’s because over time as your websites grow, you’ll need a little bit more power to keep them running smoothly.

Why Cloud Hosting?

Performance:

  • With a top-of-the-line technology platform, leveraging high-end processors, high-performance storage & memory along with clearly defined resource isolation, our new cloud platform gives you the performance your customers are expecting
  • Low-density servers (fewer customers per server) coupled with Varnish, will help boost your web-page load speed two-fold!

Scalability:

  • If you wish to increase the performance of your site, simply click the upgrade button on the control panel for more resources to be applied to your site
  • No intrusive downtime or platform migration required, no surprise usage fees on your next bill, you are in complete control! In short, you can allocate more CPU (up to 8 additional cores) and RAM (up to 8 GB of Additional RAM) to your Cloud Hosting Package to handle traffic spikes

Redundancy: Since the storage backend is based on ceph  with 3 copies of data stored in different locations, across different drives and cabinets, we will migrate you onto another server if any hardware issues are detected on one server.
