Features to Consider while Buying a VPS Hosting Service.

However, it is not only the pros and cons that you need to study. You also need to take a look at their features so that you can distinguish one provider from the other from a horde. There are plenty of viable VPS solution providers, including a few very budget friendly ones. Therefore, in order to make a smart decision regarding the selection of a VPS hosting provider, you need to consider the features you actually need, along with the overall costs.

Average Uptime

Uptime and downtime of a server vary depending on various factors including DDoS attacks, Hardware failure, company's responsiveness to attend such situations, DNS issues and many others. Despite all these, several companies maintain really nice average uptime and that's really expected by their customers. Low uptime may end up loosing sales, search engine rankings and visitor's trust, so average uptime of a service is a must check feature when you buy hosting service.

Control Panel

The control panel is an interface that establishes a connection amongst customers and offers instant access to operations and features. There exists a multitude of control panels, with cPanel and Plesk being the most popular ones. These two are quite intuitive as well as self-explanatory, due to which they are suitable for the beginners. Further, some providers offer control panel free of cost, while others charge an extra monthly fee for it.

Operating System

The operating system may not make up a big difference for beginners, but experienced or enterprise business managers are truly affected. However, the latter ones clearly know how to differentiate between Linux and Windows and choose the most appropriate one. Generally, Linux is cheaper than Windows, because it is an open-source operating system. There are some providers that even extend their support for Ubuntu. Therefore, you must choose a VPS solution that offers the operating system of your choice.

Data Centers

The number of data centers varies from one VPS hosting to another. They are usually scattered within a country or even across nations. You should choose a data center that not only ensures high-speed performance but also is closer to your customers’ location for gaining the benefit of faster connection.

Security, Backup, and Restore Options

Security is essential for winning the trust of your customers, regardless of how basic or advanced your business is! Most VPS hosting providers integrate security options in their own packages. However, you need to check that tight security is offered against viruses and other malware. Apart from security, the backup and restore options are also important. While some providers charge you for weekly or monthly backups, others allow you to back up at zero cost.


A myriad of applications as well as some scripts are offered free of cost many VPS hosting providers. However, there are a few reputable providers who charge for the same. Therefore, it is crucial to identify your needs before spending money on them. Moreover, go for one-click installations if you are a novice, as you may not be familiar with FTP installations.
