VPS Servers are small, with limited resources, and many customers are not qualified to address server security and maintenance. So why do so many people recommend a VPS?
You should know that the website community has begun to lose faith in shared hosting because many hosts have adopted predatory pricing, promising unlimited accounts, space and bandwidth for cheap hosting accounts. They foster bad practices, like stacking accounts with add-on domains, making them vulnerable to hackers. They also use buzzwords and drop product names to mislead customers.
New customers don’t know how to compare hosting services because the buzzwords and ad copy make everything sound the same at different price points, when in fact, hosting services vary greatly from company to company, The industry is saturated by these disgusting practices. Predictably, this causes overloaded, unsafe hosting environments that attract unsuspecting customers who get burned. It has given shared hosting a bad name.
In response, the website community has shifted their trust to VPS servers, feeling that a small, limited server that delivers minimal resources is better than a bloated, predatory service that is even worse. Many choose a VPS when they don’t have the experience to work on their own server, trusting that the server will just manage itself, or the provider will spend hours each month maintaining a cheap VPS. Obviously, no company can spend adequate time each month to maintain a product they sell for pennies a day. Sadly, many hosting customers don’t know any better.
There are some unique circumstances where a seasoned server pro can benefit by choosing a VPS. Generally, because they have special needs. There is a place in the market for VPS services, but it is a small niche, and not for the fledgling consumer.
