Re: What are the advantages and disadvantages of Virtual Machine Hosting

Having a website is good. But the hosts - even paying - sometimes impose heavy constraints:
  • You can usually use that php / mysql
  • You do not have access to the web server logs, or logs to mysql
  • MySQL Access restricted (it must go through phpMyAdmin)
  • Unable to install applications of your choice
  • Inability to pages or services on other ports than port 80
  • Impossibility (usually) have a HTTPS site.

Host a website at home gives total freedom, but there are constraints:
  • It must leave your computer on 24/24 basis
  • The upstream (upload) is pathetic, so your site will be slow. (Example: 100 kb / second flow amount at Free with Mega offers 24-bit).
  • Poorly secured website = your own machine is cracked.

It gives you access to a Xen virtual machine placed on a big server and a high speed line (This virtual machine behaves as a complete computer). This virtual server has a certain amount of RAM and hard drive and a dedicated IP address. You install the operating system of your choice above (Debian, Suse, Ubuntu, Fedora ...) You have root access on the server.

It is seen that most webmasters start your website hosting in a shared hosting server, especially since the shared web hosting plan requires a small fee compared to the most powerful Virtual Private Server (VPS), semi -Dedicated server hosting, or dedicated hosting server. It is with good reason, because at first, these webmasters are trying to settle in this great internet.

VPS Advantages

Therefore, customers who place you on the same physical server as part of its VPS will not be able to access data on your VPS. Due to this, a dedicated virtual server favorably with Shared-hosting an increased level of security.

Performance : The owner of a dedicated virtual server has all the permissions (the right root) for administration. This allows a particular VPS realize the optimal environment for your project and maximize its performance.

Cost : Dedicated virtual server gives you all the benefits of a dedicated server, but has at the same order of magnitude lower cost. Therefore, virtual machines are typically used in large projects as an inexpensive alternative to dedicated server.
