The easy way to explode your online business

Starting your own website can be an exciting process. However, there are also some daunting aspects, like where to start.

Many first-time website owners or businesses tend to opt for shared hosting when launching their website because it is affordable. However, what many users don’t realize is that by investing a little more in alternative hosting options, like VPS hosting, it could make all the difference to your business.

By broadening your horizons and going for a VPS through someone like ScalaHosting, you could eliminate many of the issues that users face with shared hosting. Also, you don’t need any technical expertise to set up a VPS hosting server, as ScalaHosting offers managed VPS plans.

Let’s see how a VPS hosted website could make a difference for your business.

Traditional Shared Hosting vs Managed VPS

Shared hosting is an inexpensive way to host your website because one server hosts many online projects. This means that the cost is divided by hundreds of users, which lowers the price of running a server. Generally, you can expect to pay as little as a few dollars per month for a shared server.

However, shared hosting has several drawbacks that make it unsuitable, especially if you want to drive traffic to your website or business. It’s easier to imagine a shared server setup if you imagine a shared apartment. If a household member’s device trips the electricity, all of the property’s electricity goes out. Similarly, on a shared server, if a website is hacked or has major technical issues, it could cause downtime for the rest of the websites on that server.

Not ideal if you run a business.

VPS hosting also hosts multiple websites on one server, however, as the name suggests, using virtualization technology, the server is split into smaller virtual servers, giving your project its own space. VPS servers are therefore more reliable, and they give you more control since you can install any custom software on them. It’s like having your own personal machine, without the expense of a fully dedicated server.

What turns many people off from VPS hosting is that they often don’t know that there are two types of services. The first is a self-managed option where you will have root access to a server. You will need to configure the machine yourself and create the environment you need. For most users, this is too difficult technically.

However, the second type of VPS hosting – managed VPS – means you can enjoy the benefits of a virtual server without having to set it up yourself. A web host, like ScalaHosting, will configure the machine so that you can host your website immediately, while maintaining full customization control over the environment.

Loading speed, availability, redundancy: their importance for your website

If you share your server resources with hundreds of other users, you might end up with a slow website in a scenario where other sites start hogging available RAM and CPU. With a VPS setup, you’ll get your own server and a set of resources that aren’t shared with anyone else. So if you hit your resource limits, you know you, and you alone, are responsible.

When it comes to web hosting, CPU and RAM are extremely important. They can affect how quickly your website loads because the server is the machine that hosts your project and allows it to be seen by end users on the Internet.

On average, website visitors will wait about two seconds for a web page to load. The longer it takes to load, the fewer users will stay. Over the years, people’s patience has worn thin. So if your website is taking a long time to load and you have no control over it because it’s your web server that’s causing problems, you could be losing potential customers or even your business.

ScalaHosting VPS managed with SPanel

Now is the time to consider your hosting options. Are you currently on a shared server? Looking to set up a business website that could potentially drive a lot of traffic? If you answered yes, it’s probably time to up your hosting game and upgrade to a VPS hosting plan.

ScalaHosting’s Managed VPS not only includes free migration of your existing website, but it’s also managed 24/7. However, if you want to have some level of control over your site, its VPS plans with SPanel might be the best option.

SPanel is a state-of-the-art hosting management platform that lets you easily operate your website’s files, databases, domains, emails, and more. The platform also includes unique tools, developed by Scala—SShield for real-time server security and SWordPress Manager for WP automation.

Unlike market leader cPanel, ScalaHosting’s SPanel is not subject to licensing fees and is absolutely free.

Multi-datacenter cloud cluster

If your business needs a more customized hosting plan, ScalaHosting’s fully managed custom SPanel cluster solutions might be just what you need. This is especially true when you’re looking to host a high traffic website that can’t afford even a second of downtime. ScalaHosting’s intelligent load balancing ensures that no downtime is incurred if a cluster node goes down – it will simply send requests to nodes that are online.

And, if your business plans change at any time, you can scale your resources up or down on the go.

It is the ideal solution for any type of business where availability, reliability and scalability are crucial factors. Each cluster is entirely designed and managed by ScalaHosting’s team of experts (they are not dependent on third parties). If your utilization exceeds 80% in a given cluster, you will be notified to avoid any performance issues.

You can choose between a single datacenter cluster, a multi-datacenter cluster, or a multi-region cluster to suit your website needs. All three options provide full redundancy, high-speed networking, and constant uptime for resource-consuming websites.

From there, you can customize your package to ensure you get exactly what you need, backed by a team of ScalaHosting experts.

Are you ready for the big change?

If your e-commerce store is underperforming or your website isn’t getting the traffic you expect, it’s time to make the jump to VPS hosting.

Change can be scary, especially when your business is at stake, but in this case upgrading makes a lot of sense.

With increased performance, reliable servers, and someone to handle the process for you, a VPS hosting plan from ScalaHosting puts you in the driver’s seat, without the need to shift gears or touch the pedals. The team understands how important your website is to you and will be available 24/7 to assist you.
