    Here are some key advantages that VPS offers over shared hosting :

    1. Security - VPS accounts are insulated from each other, minimizing the risk of unauthorized access from hackers as well as other customers.

    2. Performance - All resources can be regulated in the VPS environment.

    3. Protected Mail Service - Each VPS account has its own private mail server, filtered by Postini.

    4. Customer Installed Applications - With VPS you have your own partition and root access.

    5. Flexibility - Some applications require that certain ports and/or protocols be opened or closed in the firewall.

    6. Growth Path - VPS system allows us to manage your VPS as an image.


    Any inputs here? What VPS advantages could you add here?


    Thanks,

    I think VPSes are awesome because it gives you a lot more access with your hosting, its live an administrators account on windows, it lets you play around more with your servers.

    In addition, since you are more in control with the server, it's a virtual, but still you can manage it as a full server. You have full root access, full control and therefore you can do almost whatever you want installing anything you like, even stuff that is not provided the web hosting plans of the same provider, you could remove the control panel and install another one (i.e. removing cPanel and install webmin or remove totally a control panel and manage the server by yourself changing manually the configuration). You could repolace the webmail interface with another one (i.e. remove Squirrelmail, and install something else). You can change root Apache config .https.conf and root php.ini config.

    A VPS Hosting can gives you the following advantages that Shared Hosting can never offer :
    • Full root/administrator Access.
    • You can install any application by yourself on your server.
    • Reboot the server when you require.
    • You don’t need to depend on anyone for fixing and maintaining your web server as you have full control of it.

    The biggest advantage is that you literally OWN the server. I use DigitalOcean and they have plans starting from $5/mo which is cheaper than many shared providers which won't allow me complete access anyway. It's almost like owning a remote PC.
    Of course, you must be able to navigate the command line and there is usually a typing delay etc. when using SSH, but it's worth it.
