If you're interested in starting a website, you're probably aware that you need some type of website hosting to make it available online. While you may be tempted to just look at the normally lower price of VPS Hosting and make your choice based on cost alone, you may be doing yourself an expensive disservice. While you could save some money with VPS Hosting in the short-term, you may find that you need to spend a lot of money later on if your website grows significantly. Along with differences in pricing, there are a number of differences in how resources are managed. The type of hosting you'll need will depend on the kind of site you intend to run as well as if you expect to need more bandwidth or data in the future. When you use your computer, you're using an operating system. For most people, it's either Windows or the Apple OS. An operating system allows you to access the files on your computer, and it runs programs as well. Hosting providers do basically the same thing, allowing visitors to your website to access files on your site and enable processes, such as scripts. Just like with a regular computer, the amount of RAM, storage and bandwidth will determine how fast or slow access is.
