This article will give you an idea about important things you should know about VPS hosting before purchasing VPS server.
Managed vs Unmanaged VPS Hosting
Managed and Unmanaged VPS hosting
In both situations, you’re responsible for server setup and maintenance of all programs which run on the system.
With an Unmanaged VPS, your hosting provider has only two responsibilities i.e making sure your VPS is running and that it’s connected to the network. You will need to handle your server issues and configurations as this is an unmanaged service.
In a Managed VPS environment, your service provider will take care of the server. There are no security issues to be concerned about, not function-specific tasks you’ll need to handle yourself i.e your host will manage everything for you and solve any issues that crop up.
VPN vs VPS: What’s the Difference?
Basically, there is not much of a similarity.
What is a VPN?
A VPN is a private network used by most people to keep their connection secure and private on the Internet.
How VPN works ?
I’m including this segment because you can use a VPN to connect to a VPS server and manage it. The VPN keeps your connection private and untraceable.
Some VPNs offer fixed IP addresses, and that gives many users an advantage since almost all ISPs use dynamic IPs for their customers. By using a VPN with a fixed IP, you can whitelist your IP in managing the VPS. It will be more secure.
What is a VPS?
A VPS, on the other hand, is a virtual server you can use as a dedicated server to host your websites or manage other web-related tasks, such as setting up Cloud Storage, hosting emails and more. The two are similar in acronym only.
