How to choose the best location for a VPS Server in 2021

Published on 31 May, 2021 in Vps Hosting

If your online business is expanding and you’ve outgrown shared hosting, taking the next step to VPS hosting could definitely be the right choice for you, as it provides a lot more resources at an affordable price. So if you’ve already decided to opt for a VPS, you need to make sure it’s in the best possible location for you, too. In this article, we’ll look at what things to consider when choosing the location of your VPS Server in 2021.

What is a VPS

A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a form of hosting where one physical server is partitioned with hypervisor technology to create multiple Virtual servers – each with their own set resources, like memory and disk space. A step up from shared hosting, a VPS offers a great middle ground when shared hosting is no longer viable and you’re not quite ready for a dedicated server.

As one of the most popular hosting choices, a VPS is beneficial for many reasons. Let’s take a look at a few of the advantages of a Virtual Server. 

Main benefits of a VPS

VPS is reliable

VPS hosting increases reliability and performance by ensuring that your website is not impacted by other websites on the same server. A VPS emulates a dedicated server, meaning other sites cannot affect the uptime or performance of yours.

VPS is cost-effective

You may be surprised to find out that a VPS does not actually cost much more than shared hosting, and with the amount of resources, high level of performance and stability you get, VPS hosting is most definitely a bargain! 

VPS is easy to scale

Another great benefit of a VPS is how it allows you to expand without interruptions and downtime. As your business grows, you’re going to need more resources to accommodate more customers and a VPS ensures seamless scalability.

Choosing the best VPS location

Here are our top tips of what to consider when it comes to choosing the location of your VPS.

Safe from natural disasters

When you’re deciding on a location for your VPS, it’s vital that the data centre where your server is located is somewhere that is low risk of natural disasters, and has infrastructure in place to withstand and prevent any power outages or connectivity issues. The safety and security of the physical server should be a huge priority.

Near to your customers

You’ve opted for a VPS to give your customers a smooth and reliable experience, and choosing one closer to your customer-base will enhance this even further with a faster connection and lower latency. Regardless of the quality of your server, physical distance should still be taken into consideration for optimal performance.

At NetShop, we have data centres strategically located in 7 global destinations including Cyprus, the Netherlands, Malta, the UK, the USA, Singapore and Hong Kong. 

Privacy

Depending on the type of content you’ll be hosting, picking a VPS location that has strong privacy laws may be beneficial. Where your data is stored impacts the level of privacy and rules and regulations you’ll be subjected to.
