Virtual Private Servers (VPS) hosting can be said to be the crossing between shared and dedicated hosting. You get to enjoy the great benefits of a dedicated server at only a fraction of the cost. VPS is similar to shared hosting in that your website shares a physical server with other websites. The different lies in how the resources are shared. When you host your website with a VPS, you have your own operating system. It follows therefore that your website’s performance is unaffected by others. What’s more, VPS hosting comes with greater flexibility and security. It is most ideal for advanced websites, eCommerce websites and any website that is looking to scale up.
While a VPS comes close to a dedicated server in performance, it is much cheaper. You can get a basic VPS plan with as little as R59.00 per month. Have a look at the cheapest VPS servers in South Africa in the table below:
