It’s oftentimes difficult to foresee the needs of your website when you’re just getting started. The hosting plan you choose initially may not be sufficient as your website grows and traffic increases. In such cases, it’s important that you’re able to seamlessly upgrade your resources so that your website, and business, continues to run smoothly.
In this article we’ll provide a step-by-step tutorial on how to easily upgrade your VPS via the myNetShop portal.
What is a VPS
A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a form of hosting that somewhat simulates the environment of a dedicated server, whilst being extremely cost-effective. A VPS uses hypervisor technology to effectively split one physical server into multiple, independent virtual servers. Its multi-tenant cloud architecture allows each virtual server to have its own dedicated resources, like RAM and CPU.
VPS hosting has grown in popularity as it provides a middle point between shared and dedicated hosting. With a VPS, you can expect high-performance and reliability at an affordable price.
