When you are trying to create a successful business, it is important that every facet performs at the highest level possible, and this includes the web servers. A slow server can turn off customers, and in the end, it could lead to a loss of revenue. It is for this reason that many businesses are choosing to use
Increased Performance
Unlike shared hosting plans, where there are dozens, if not, hundreds of other users sharing the same server as your business, a VPS will ensure that your enterprise remains independent of other users. This is important because websites that share a plan can be affected by one another, and this can cause functionality problems. For instance, if a website sharing the same server as your business is receiving high levels of traffic, it can slow all of the sites on the server. By using a VPS, the functioning of your website will never be determined by other sites.

Greater Control

A common issue that can occur if you do not use a VPS is a lack of access to your root environment. Without root access, you must rely on software packages that the hosting provider supports. Unsupported software can raise security concerns for hosting providers, and on a shared server, the software that is available will be dictated by the host. If your business is looking to use industry specific software that is not supported by the host, then this could cause issues and may prevent the use of the software entirely. By using a VPS, your business will be able to freely implement any necessary software changes within the server.

Scalability

If you own a small business and do not have plans of expanding, then you may be able to predict the amount of traffic your website will receive. However, if you are looking to grow your business, then chances are that traffic levels will increase as the customer base expands, and you will need a server to accommodate this. Unlike a shared server, which can be limiting in regards to scalability, a VPS makes it easy to scale up operations without interfering with the functioning of the server. In fact, scaling up can be as simple as upgrading your hosting plan, and this typically does not require any downtime, so your site will continue to operate without interruption.


I hope this information will be helpful!
