VPS vs. Shared Web Hosting

Trying to decide between our shared web hosting and our powerful managed VPS?


  • Control
  • Resources
  • Security
  • Applications
  • Traffic
Shared Web Hosting
  • Server resources may be capped and you may not be able to install the necessary scripts, apps, or plugins on your website.
  • If another customer's website starts using too many computing resources, your website's performance will be negatively impacted.
  • If another customer's website on your shared server gets hacked, your website could be compromised as well and remediation is beyond your control.
  • You may not be able to install important applications in your shared hosting environment due to excessive resource requirements.
  • With shared hosting, you can receive low to moderate amounts of traffic. Traffic surges may require additional computing resources.
Managed VPS Hosting
  • VPS gives you the freedom to install any script or app you need, reboot the server, and even allocate resources where required.
  • With a VPS, the resources on your server are yours alone, so another customer's usage will never harm your website or application performance.
  • A dedicated IP address keeps your VPS account isolated from others and you have the freedom to implement any additional security measures you see fit.
  • You can install applications and other intensive scripts that require custom server configurations and enhanced computing resources on your own VPS.
  • A VPS can handle heavy surges in traffic, and you can upgrade your account at any time if additional computing resources are required.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Virtual Private Server (VPS)?+

A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is an independent, virtual partition on a physical server. Think of a server with different “containers” within it. When you sign up for HostPapa VPS hosting, you get one of these containers to manage as you wish⁠—install applications or scripts, and arrange your web files the way you want. It’s private, secure, and flexible.

While you will share some hardware resources with other VPS customers on your server, nothing your adjacent accounts do will affect your container and vice versa. You get many of the benefits of your own dedicated server at a fraction of the cost. On a shared server, you rely on the performance of the platform provided. By choosing VPS, you get to select a configuration best suited for your applications, requirements, and growth.

Should I choose VPS or Shared hosting?+

VPS hosting is an affordable option when your business requirements outgrow the capacity of shared hosting. It’s the next logical step: substantially more capacity and control for just a bit more money. Users on a shared web hosting server share the computing resources for the websites, email, and databases. There is no guarantee of CPU, RAM on shared web hosting. VPS hosting provides dedicated compute resources for your websites, files, email, databases, etc. keeping you in complete control. In addition, you get more control with root level access to perform configurations not possible in shared hosting.

What can I do on VPS that is difficult or not possible to do on Shared web hosting?+

A Virtual Private Server allows you to host sites (storefront, eCommerce, content, media) and software applications (primarily web: portal, extranet, collaborative solutions, wiki, CRM) with ease. Unlike shared hosting, VPS hosting makes it possible to isolate multiple applications from one another within the same container.

VPS offers a number of advantages over shared hosting. As a VPS user, you can:

  • Run specific applications not allowed in shared plans such as custom forums.
    Access additional capacity⁠—fewer customers share each server.
  • Enjoy the reduced risk that your business will be disrupted due to a co-hosted site on the server.
  • Be independent. If another customer compromises their VPS, yours won’t be affected.
What are the benefits of VPS?+

Users are guaranteed the resources on their VPS server for their web hosting accounts. This means that your account will always be allocated the set amount of RAM, CPU, and disk space you’ve chosen regardless of what other users on the server are doing. This allows for greater stability and performance of your website, applications, and email. You also do not share the operating system with any other users, providing better security for your website files.

Why should I choose a VPS over setting up my own private dedicated server?+

Two words: cost and maintenance. Running your own dedicated server is possible but comes at a higher cost and is self-managed. You will need to keep up with patches, hardware upgrades, server maintenance, and storage. You can also rent dedicated servers, but the price is substantially more than a VPS.

A VPS offers the perfect step between the constraints of a shared hosting plan and the commitment of a dedicated server. You’ll have a lot more flexibility, capacity, and control at an affordable price.

Go ahead. Take a peek under the hood!
