Who Needs to Use a VPS?

  • A virtual private server is usually a good choice for growing websites that don't quite need the resources of a dedicated server.
  • Shared hosting is a great place to start out when building a new website, especially if you aren't sure how much traffic you'll be dealing with or what kind of resources you'll need. If you notice that your shared hosting is slowing down website page load times, then that's usually a good hint that it's time to move up to a VPS.
  • Another good reason to step up to a VPS is if you have any concerns about security issues. Most decent web hosts put measures in place to secure your data on shared hosting, but a virtual private server will always be more secure.

What Is a Virtual Private Server?

Virtual private servers use virtualization technology to set up multiple virtual servers on a single physical server.

This is more affordable than paying for a dedicated server, because the costs are split across several users, but you still enjoy the added security of having your own private allotment of RAM, data storage, and usually at least one CPU.

Virtual private servers work by using software to create a number of virtual machines on a single physical server. Each of these virtual servers has access to its own dedicated resources and can't interact with any of the other servers, which is why they're referred to as private.

In effect, a virtual private server works by simulating the effect of having your own dedicated server hardware. You get many of the benefits of a dedicated server, like added security and dedicated resources to help your website run smoothly, without the expense of paying for an entire server by yourself.

Cloud computing is on-demand access, via the internet, to computing resources—applications, servers (physical servers and virtual servers), data storage, development tools, networking capabilities, and more—hosted at a remote data center managed by a cloud services provider (or CSP). The CSP makes these resources available for a monthly subscription fee or bills them according to usage.

Cloud computing has the following benefits:

  1. Lower IT costs
  2. Improved agility and Time-To-Value
  3. Better scaling.

Can Dynamic Sites Go Serverless?

1) A website isn’t static; it’s dynamic . It’s ever-changing. The moment you accomplish something, you can add it to your website. When you complete a project, you can put it in your portfolio for all to see. You don’t need to print new copies of it and send it out to your contacts over and over; you just update it. People can continually come back and see what you’re up to.

2) Having a website makes you more findable. If all you have is a resume, you have to go out and hand it to people to get your name out. If someone wanted to look you up on the internet and you didn’t have a website, all they might get is a Facebook or Twitter profile.

However, if you have a website, you can be found by a much wider audience and control what it is they see first. This is key for establishing your personal brand and for highlighting your accomplishments.

I’ve been offered jobs, met clients for my web design work, and gotten interviews simply because I have a website. If I didn’t take the time to create one, I’m confident that I wouldn’t have been found.
