In this article we will try to explain different types of hosting involved when you are looking for hosting your website on the cloud. Along with each type of hosting we will also provide the details about ServerSpace.us offerings for the particular hosting like the server capacity and the price for such service.
What is VPS Hosting?
VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. To make VPS hosting a little easier to understand, let’s take a quick look at two other kinds of hosting and compare them to VPS hosting.
On one hand, there’s shared hosting. Your website files are housed on a server along with the files of other websites, and the server’s bandwidth and resources are shared among all the websites on that server.
You have very little control over the server settings or operations.
Think of it like renting a unit in an apartment complex where you share parking space, storage, and laundry facilities with others in the complex.
Shared hosting is an affordable solution that is generally well suited to most small- and many medium-sized businesses that have simple, straightforward websites with daily traffic under 2,000 visitors.
What is VDS Hostig and how is it different from VPS Hosting?
Dedicated hosting is often the right solution for large, complex, high-traffic sites and applications.
Dedicated Hosting is available in two forms – Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS) and a Physical Dedicated Server.
What is Cloud Server Hosting?
The term “cloud” can be confusing and misleading. There’s nothing airy or nebulous about it.
cloud hosting uses innovative technologies to spread the files, data, resources, bandwidth, and computing operations among multiple servers that are networked to act as one system.
Serverspace.us provides cloud server hosting for VPS and VDS with the following features.

What is DNS?
Well, it’s a translation system that allows us humans to search the Internet using language we’re comfortable with.
Without DNS, the Internet as we know it would not exist.
For example, you couldn’t do your shopping online; you’d have to drive to an actual store to buy your things.
There’d be no way to stream music or videos to your smartphone, and no way to video chat with a friend across the ocean, or even across the street.
What is SSL?
SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. The protocols like HTTP and FTP are extended with SSL and are called HTTPS and SFTP. These secured protocols require you install a certificate in your hosting server. These certificates are provided by Authorized providers like Verizon or you can also install self signed certificates from sources like LetsEncrypt.
ServerSpace.us provides free SSL certificates when you host your websites with them. They take care of integrating with letsencrypt.org and deploying the certificates for your website(s).
