Like the shared website hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting plans have different functionalities depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS server package offers guaranteed hard disk storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short periods of time if there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A VPS server is easier to manage as it offers a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by competent customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, given hosting companies offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they implement dedicated hosting server management tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
