Hostek: Your VPS Windows Hosting Provider
If you’re launching your new business website or you think your existing server could use an extra boost, it might be time to take a closer look at your web hosting options. Your web host is actually just as important as your website design, as any hosting shortcomings will undoubtedly impact how your site performs and the overall user experience. Shared servers are traditionally perceived to be a good place to start. However for most organizations that is not a good idea. If security, performance, PCI, etc are important to your organization or you are preparing for significant web traffic, you definitely should be looking at your own virtual private server (VPS).
Generally speaking, virtual private servers utilize advanced technology to ensure that you have a reserved, dedicated resource that houses all of the information needed to access your website. You won’t have to share that space with other websites, meaning that your site visitors won’t be affected by any other sites (which frequently happens with shared servers). You’ll also obtain a lot of the same features offered by dedicated hosting without having to pay exorbitant prices, while still having total control over your server. With VPS hosting, you’ll have your own virtual spot for your domain or application only, allowing for an independent operating system with scalable CPU and RAM to meet any growing needs you have.
Usually, it’s recommended that you switch to VPS hosting if you’re struggling with slow site speeds, low server memory (or frequent navigation and loading errors), or server security concerns. You may also want to consider VPS hosting if you’re looking to utilize a specific operating system and accompanying software. Of course, within the VPS sector, there are several different options to choose from. Often, Windows server options emerge as the most familiar and most beneficial for businesses. Let’s take a closer look at why a Windows virtual server might be the best choice for your needs.
What is a Windows VPS Server?
You now know more about virtual private servers, but what makes Windows VPS hosting different? It’s actually pretty simple: these hosting systems use Windows interfaces and management tools to provide a streamlined and user-friendly experience. With a VPS Windows set-up, you’ll gain superior software along with tutorials, how-to guides, and customer service support that will provide valuable information on how to make the best use of your server.
While Windows isn’t the only VPS operating system that will be available to you, it will most likely be the one that’s most recognizable to you, particularly if your business already uses Windows software in your daily operations.
Why Use Windows VPS Hosting?
As mentioned above, Windows VPS operating systems utilize interfaces that are already familiar to many business owners. That benefit might seem easy to dismiss at first, but don’t overestimate the importance of feeling comfortable with your hosting provider. The less time your organization has to spend on acclimating to a new system, the better off you’ll be. You won’t have to sacrifice your organization’s productivity while trying to get up to speed on your server management.
One of the more common reasons to utilize a Windows VPS is that your application may be built for Windows Server. A Windows VPS will allow you to utilize various technologies like .NET, PHP, Perl, nodeJS and more.
What’s more, Windows is a highly trusted name in the industry -- and for good reason. Not only do their VPS systems come with desirable features, frequent updates, and extra support, but they also offer greater flexibility for administrators. Essentially, Windows knows how to customize their offerings to address the needs of different businesses. With so many functions available, all displayed in a straightforward way, you’ll be able to save time while gaining more control over your hosting.
