What Makes Elastic Hosting Better than VPS?

When choosing the best web hosting plan for your site, elastic hosting offers many benefits over VPS hosting. Simply put, elastic hosting is quickly becoming the next generation hosting model because it can take care of all your site’s needs, while also cutting your costs. To help you better understand what makes elastic hosting better than VPS, here is a quick look at everything you need to know, starting with a look at the major differences between the two.

What is VPS Hosting?

VPS (virtual private server) hosting provides your website with separated environment. It has its own copy of the operating system, powerful hardware, and allocated server resources. Essentially, a physical machine is divided into different virtual compartments. Separate server software is set up in each compartment, ensuring the unit is able to function independently.

While VPS hosting does have its benefits, such as customization and root access, it is also expensive. Keep in mind that you will need to buy licenses for your VPS. More importantly, you are responsible for handling installation and configuration, as well as managing the site. As a result you have to manage the server yourself, which requires time, effort, and knowledge. Hiring someone for this task tends to get expensive. In fact, managed VPS hosting tends to cost anywhere from 8 to 10 times more than a shared hosting plan.

What is Elastic Hosting?

Similar to a shared hosting site, elastic hosting allows for multiple websites to be hosted on the same shared web server. However, it offers the reliability and resources of a managed VPS, such as dedicated resources for RAM, CPU, and connections. Each site is kept completely isolated from the others in a separate Lightweight Virtualized Environment (LVE). The LVE distributes and limits server resources to ensure stability. No customer can use more than they have been allocated, meaning the shared server should never go down.

To sum it up, elastic hosting offers the resources of shared hosting without the sharing, while also allowing you access to the resources you absolutely need without being burdened with the responsibilities of a VPS. Every site has its own environment and dedicated resources to ensure it is never negatively impacted by others. The server is managed by the host and is easily automated. Though it may be a bit more costly than an unmanaged VPS, it costs significantly less than a managed VPS. Best of all, you will not have to deal with all the headaches that often come with server management.
