Why it’s better to skip VPS and upgrade to Managed Hosting

If you’re running a website or application on a traditional shared hosting provider and you are feeling like you are outgrowing the shared environment, you may be considering upgrading to a virtual private server (VPS) as a next step. While a VPS can provide some benefits over shared hosting, it may not be the best solution for every website. In some cases, it may be more effective to skip VPS and move straight to a Managed Hosting service.

With Managed Hosting, you’ll get a customized hosting infrastructure that fits your needs, which can help your site handle more traffic and run more smoothly. And with Winhost’s Managed Hosting, you’ll have access to a team of professionals who can help you with everything from setting up your server to optimizing your site performance.

Winhost’s Managed Hosting provides many benefits over both traditional shared hosting and VPS.

No Noisy Neighbor Effect
With shared hosting, many customer sites run on a single server. With VPS, you have a slice of a server that has many other VPS customers – and they all share the resources of a single server. In either case, you are sharing resources and are susceptible to noisy neighbors. If another site is using up a lot of server resources, your site can be negatively impacted. If another site uploads a vulnerable application, your site could be affected.

No Server Management
Winhost’s Managed Hosting is fully-managed. We take care of setting up the server and the ongoing server maintenance and security patching. With VPS, you will need to manage your slice of the server. And you are also relying on the other VPS customers on the same server to make sure they manage their VPS too.

Easier Upgrading
Upgrading Shared Hosting and VPS usually means migrating your site which is disruptive. With Winhost’s Managed Hosting infrastructure, we can upgrade your server with little to no downtime.

Consultation and Technical Support
Typically traditional shared hosting and VPS are deployed through automated online signup forms. With Winhost’s Managed Hosting, we provide preplanning consultation and we customize the private hosting environment for your site/s and we assist in migration. Our team of experts is also available to help you plan for growth as well.

So, how do you know when it’s time to make the move to Managed Hosting?
Here are a few key indicators:

In conclusion, if your site is experiencing sluggish performance and/or high traffic levels, it may be best to consider skipping VPS solutions and upgrading to a fully-Managed Hosting service, especially if you do not have the technical expertise to setup and manage the server.
