When It’s Time To Switch From Shared Hosting To VPS

Web HostingCPU, which stands for computer’s central processing unit, is the part of the machine that controls all of the tasks and processes at all times. The CPU is like any other working component, in that it has the ability to be overworked. The cause of the CPU to become overworked would be if the amount of RAM the computer has is getting low in comparison to how many programs are open and being used, which can consequently result in a slower and hotter in temperature of a machine.

CPU Performance

The speed at which the CPU operates is known as the CPU time. This term refers to the amount of time the CPU takes in processing the data for each program in order for them to work. CPU time is measured in seconds, or in computer lingo, clock ticks. When CPU usage is regarded as being high, it means max levels of applications are open and running at the same time. In order to reduce the high levels of CPU usage, the programs that are open and not in use should be closed to achieve a faster clock tick of processing. Doing so will put less stress on the computer system overall, and will prevent any chances of damage, of which most of the time is caused by overheating.

CPU Programs

Programs are executed by the functions of processes. A virtual address space is given to a process, as well as executable codes, security contexts, priority classes, in which each are started by a single thread which has the ability of creating more threads from its own. A thread is the process’s entity which is executed through scheduling. Like processes, a thread has its own virtual address space as well, and the many components allows it to have the ability to mimic its clients. On a single-core CPU, only one process has the ability to be run at any single time, although it may seem as if many are running concurrently due to the operating system’s ability to switch between different ones. A process may also be referred to as a task, in which its presence is defined as something that takes up time, rather than space.

Bandwidth

The bandwidth of the CPU can be defined as the rate of which data is transferred. This rate is known as the bit rate, in which it is measured by bits per second, BPS for short. In computer networking, the bandwidth is referred to as the data rate supported by connection, in which it measures the distance between the highest and lowest signals on a single band, or the network’s communication channel.

In web hosting, the bandwidth controls the speed of the site’s running and load time. The amount of bandwidth of a website is crucial to its performance, and can be the difference of being looked at as professional in opposed to amateur built. The amount of bandwidth needed for a single site can be determined by how many users visit. If the website is of a smaller business and in the process of just starting up, then not a lot of bandwidth is needed, unless there is a great outlook of visitors very soon.

In web hosting, shared hosting is the sharing of a single server amongst many different websites. This can be problematic for some in the case of a single website developer using up too many resources of the server, which could have the effect of it slowing down. For the bigger and more visited websites, developers might want to consider moving to VPS hosting in which they can have more control of the server, because as opposed to shared hosting in which a single server is shared, they will be renting an entire server for themselves.

  • VPS hosting is definitely a much better option and really it is for people who get serious about their blogs. Shared hosting is good for beginners and people who are still trying to figure out things for themselves.

    Once you get serious, VPS is a good choice and if you want to focus on business and don’t want to deal with technical issues of managing a website, managed VPS hosting is what you want to go for. It’s a bit costly when compared with normal VPS hosting. But it’s all worth it.

    Thanks,

    • Thanks for stopping by and making a good point, Kumar.

  • Nice post! I’d saying when the certain amount to traffic is achieved we must switch to VPS hosting. I’ve been thinking to switch to a reliable VPS provide very soon.

    Thanks

  • Personally, I would recommend VPS over shared hosting. It’s much better when it comes to resource management. Its capacity to run more advanced scripts and root access is another thing that I love about this. Well, shared hosting is cost-effective but I don’t want to go through the hassle.

  • Hi Garen,

    VSP has been really a need in the market in recent days as when blogs starts to grow and traffic as well; resources like CPU well start to become overwhelming with all the traffic coming in, also VSP becomes handy and sometime cost effective when you have multiple websites. Thanks for sharing this post.

  • Shared hosting is good option if you have a very good base setup with large audience . For small websites with small no of users shared hosting is a valuable option to keep business cost low.

  • Yes. Karim Roumani you r right. I’m also shifted from Shared to VPS & now using VPS hosting. It gives much better result now. But someone suggested me about Dedicated Server. What you think about this 😀 plz rply

  • Very nice and informative article… Thanks for sharing such an amaizing information….

  • is Bandwith speed is important ?

  • Good discussion here on the inner workings of the CPU. Thanks for sharing.
