5 reasons why VPS hosting is the best choice for CMS website

  • June 06, 2013

If you have a Content Management System (CMS) based website - whether it be WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal or something else - then you must surely be thinking of what kind of web hosting would be the best fit for your needs. There are plenty of options available from various shared hosting packages from different providers. However, whichever way you slice it, shared hosting still means you have to share your resources with others and will always be limited when you need more.

Virtual Private Servers (VPS), or sometimes referred to as Virtual Premium Servers, are an option that often gets overlooked. If you look again, they offer features and computing power that matches a dedicated server but is still offered at a fraction of the cost. That just one of the advantages that VPS’s offer over shared hosting and dedicated servers.

Since CMS systems require slightly more resources and stable environments, VPS hosting is a perfect option for the average, or even more advanced, CMS based website. Here are 5 reasons for why a VPS plan is right for your CMS based website:

  1. Improved load times
    A CMS website, especially an eCommerce site, requires a lot of speed for accessing web pages and for lower page loading time count. With dedicated resources on a virtual machine, the website can consistently load faster and not get affected by other users.

  2. Flexibility
    VPS hosting plans are flexible and scalable to your website needs. So if your business is growing and you need more bandwidth to handle the traffic, simply move to the next plan without having to change the specifics of your site.

  3. Cost effective
    There are fully managed VPS options available that leaves the maintenance of the software and resources of your server with the hosting provider. VPS plans also lets you host multiple websites on a single virtual machine if that is what you are looking for, all for less than what it would cost on a dedicated server.

  4. Security
    Hosting providers and yourself have more control over a VPS server since it is an isolated machine. You can isolate a problem quickly and remove any malware or block any hacker threats with constant monitoring and security protocols.

  5. Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
    Faster page load times and more secure pages are crucial for SEO value for your website. Your pages will rank higher in search results and will not be flagged for malware or virus if the proper security measures are in place.

Building a website has become a lot easier because of CMS tools available at our disposal. It removes the necessity to know programming languages or be a web developer in order to build a website. However, choosing the right hosting plan for a CMS website is just as important. So if you’re considering a CMS website, or already have one, give the VPS options available a look.
