Frequently Asked Questions
What is VPS hosting?

VPS is short for “virtual private server”. When you’re choosing a web hosting service for your website, there are various types to choose from.

 

With a dedicated server, you rent an entire server from your web hosting company, meaning you have complete control over the server setup, maximum bandwidth, and the highest level of security.

 

Shared hosting allocates space on a server for your data, which is also used by several other individuals or businesses. This type of hosting is more limited than dedicated hosting, as you won’t have full control over your settings, but it’s a lot cheaper.

 

VPS hosting is a compromise between shared hosting and dedicated hosting. With VPS hosting, you share a physical server with other customers, but the hosting environment is set up to work as if it was a dedicated server. This gives you many of the advantages of dedicated hosting at a lower cost.

Who Should Use a VPS?

Although a Virtual Private Server Hosting provides a much more affordable alternative than its physical equivalent a “Dedicated Server” a VPS plan is more expensive than a standard shared hosting plan. So who should use a Cloud-based Virtual Private Servers?

 

  • Growing businesses that are expanding beyond the capabilities that shared hosting can offer.

 

  • Businesses that have expected or planned future growth. When entering a new market or presenting a new opportunity where rapid growth is a possibility, ensuring your website has the dedicated resources it requires to maintain performance under heavy site traffic.

 

  • Websites that require a better level of privacy and performance compared to what shared hosting plans offer.

 

  • A business that requires full control over their server. Ability to custom configure, allow root access and installations that are unavailable with standard shared hosting.

 

  • Company’s that house multiple brands and websites. Keeping all your branded websites under one roof, or one VPS, rather than multiple shared hosting will ensure consistent performance and provide a better way to maintain various website hosting.
How does a VPS server work?

VPS hosting uses virtualisation technology to divide the resources of one single physical server into several virtual servers. Each of these virtual servers operates as if it is an independent dedicated server, but is contained within one physical machine.

 

If you’ve ever installed a virtual machine on your computer to run an instance of Windows on your Mac or run Linux on your Windows machine without having to restart your computer, you’ll already have experience with the type of technology that makes VPS hosting possible.

 

Or, to give a non-technical analogy, you can think of VPS hosting as renting an apartment in a larger building. While you may share the physical building with other occupants, you’re responsible for paying your own utility bills and choosing how fast your internet connection is. Nobody else has keys to your apartment, as it’s a completely private space.

What are the benefits of VPS hosting?

VPS hosting offers several benefits over shared hosting:

  • It’s more secure – as each VPS is running its own independent server environment, you won’t be at risk from viruses or cyber-attacks targeted at other virtual servers. This is particularly important if you’re running an e-commerce site, or taking data from people who visit your websites and may actually be a regulatory requirement in many cases.

 

  • It’s faster– you’ll have dedicated resources for running your own sites, so you won’t need to worry about the load on other websites slowing yours down.

 

  • You have more control– with shared hosting you’ll have limited control over your server settings, as you’re sharing the setup with several other customers. VPS hosting gives you total control over your virtual private server, so you can set it up as you wish. You can run your own instances of applications such as Apache and PHP, and customise them to your own requirements.

 

  • You get better customer service – VPS hosting is a premium service so you can expect a higher level of support than you would get with shared hosting. This means, if you need help with setup, backups, recovery, or anything else, you won’t be left on your own.

 

  • You’re isolated from other VPS environments– upgrading software or installing new software on a server usually requires rebooting the machine. This means if you’re on shared hosting, you’ll need to wait before having access to certain applications or upgrades, or you may experience downtime while the server is rebooted. With a VPS, you can restart the system at any time you choose, without affecting other clients hosted on the same server.

 

The main advantage of VPS hosting over a dedicated hosting is that it’s much more affordable. You get the advantages of a dedicated server at a lower cost.

 

If you’re concerned about your impact on the environment, you’ll be happy to know that VPS hosting is a more eco-friendly option too. Each additional physical server run by a hosting provider has an impact on the environment in terms of its production and maintenance. Sharing a server with other people is more efficient as it means that resources are used in an optimal way, and the environmental impact is reduced.

What VPS features should I look for when choosing a hosting option?

There are many VPS hosting providers out there. So how do you go about narrowing down the selection and choosing the most suitable one to host your website?

 

The physical resources of the VPS hosting package are the first thing you should consider. You need to make sure you have enough storage space, bandwidth, and processing power to meet your needs both now and in the future. Migrating your site to another server with upgraded resources can be a hassle, so it’s important to make sure you have room to scale.

 

Make sure you consider:

Storage space – If you have a large website or host multiple sites, you’ll need plenty of space to grow moving forward. Make sure to choose a server with SSD storage for the best speed and reliability.

 

Memory allowance – If you’re running numerous services on your VPS, or have a high-traffic website, you’ll need a generous memory allowance. Insufficient RAM can cause your website to be sluggish

 

Bandwidth – Bandwidth is a measure of the amount of data that you are capable of processing either to or from the users accessing your web services each month. Your bandwidth needs to increase as your site grows in size and complexity and as your traffic increases. You’ll also need a high bandwidth allowance if your site involves large-scale data transfers, for example, if you are streaming video.

 

vCPU allowance – This is a measure of how fast your server can process data. Again, the bigger your site and the more traffic you experience, the more vCPU allowance you’ll need to keep your site running smoothly.

 

Management– Do you need a self-managed or fully managed VPS?

 

Service level agreement – Each hosting service should publish an uptime guarantee. A small amount of downtime for server upgrades and maintenance is sometimes unavoidable, but good hosts should manage their servers well to keep downtime to a minimum. VentraIP promises a 99.9% uptime guarantee.

What else should I consider when choosing VPS hosting in Australia?

While it’s important to gather the above information so you can compare hosting packages, hardware options and features aren’t the only things you should consider when choosing VPS hosting.

 

Sometimes what looks like the best package on paper isn’t necessarily the best deal for you. You must also consider:

 

Price – the most expensive packages aren’t always the best, but suspiciously cheap hosting is usually cheap for a reason.

 

Customer support– What support is available if you run into problems? Can you access support 24/7? Is there an extensive online support centre to answer quick queries?

 

Reputation and reliability– How long has the hosting company been in business? Have they earned a reputation as being reliable and providing a good level of service? Be wary of brand new companies offering packages that seem too good to be true.

 

Server location– If your business is based in Australia and most of your clients and customers are there too, you should choose an Australian hosting provider. This ensures your website is as fast as possible, as your server will be physically close to the majority of your visitors, and it can give you a bit of an SEO boost too.

How do I set up my Virtual Private Server?

Once your purchase is complete, one of our web hosting experts will provision your server and perform the initial setup before giving you a call to walk you through all the finer details of your product.

 

We encourage you to ask any questions you may have and take the time to discuss what you hope to do with the server so that we may provide advice on how to proceed.

What is a root password and will I need it?

The root user is the default account that has complete access to all commands and files on the server. The root password is simply the password that is required to access the root user.

 

To make managing your server as easy as possible, we store the root details in our database for use during ongoing maintenance, support, and service optimisation.

 

Due to the way in which we manage your VPS, there’s no reason you’d ever need to access the root user or need the root password for your server.
