You have noticed that your blogs are loading slower and slower. Your hosting company is providing maintenance on the shared servers at the worst possible time for you.
Someone on your shared hosting server has been caught spamming and now the IP address that every website or blog on the shared hosting server use is now blocked by the search engines. Your web business has grown significantly. If you are experiencing any of these, then it is time to seriously consider moving to VPS Hosting.
Shared hosting is a great low cost way to get started hosting your single blog or multiple websites. All you have to do was just upload your sites. The hosting company took care of all the maintenance.
Thinking of moving over to VPS hosting causes you some anxiety because you are lacking in technical skills. Fortunately, many VPS hosting companies have what they call fully managed VPS servers. What this means is they will monitor your server to make sure it stays up and running. They provide all the updates to the hosting environments. With that worry out of the way, you need to look at the advantages of VPS hosting.

How VPS hosting is better than Shared hosting?
With Shared hosting, your website was sharing all the server resources. The shared hosting plan may have hundred of customers on a single server who each customer may be hosting hundreds of add-on domains. When this takes place, everyone can experience server performance issues such as slow page loads.
With VPS hosting, you are no longer sharing your server resources. Your VPS plan will allocate you a fixed amount of server memory and server disk space for your website. You are running multiple add-on domains; they will be sharing your VPS server resources. Most people experience a significant improvement in their website performance when moving from Shared hosting to VPS hosting.
With VPS hosting, you have complete control over when server maintenance is scheduled. With Shared hosting, you were at the mercy of the hosting provider. VPS allows you to schedule your backups when they will not affect you.
You also will have the ability to run additional programs that in the Share environment were not available since they could affect everyone else on the Shared server. VPS hosting comes with it’s own dedicated IP address. This prevents you from being penalized if someone on the Shared hosting environment becomes a spammer.
Yes VPS hosting is more expensive than Shared hosting! When you consider the performance increases, no sharing of resources, and complete control over your server environment, the additional cost is worth it.
