Differences in Hosting, VPS, and Cloud Server / Virtual Data Center
The following are explanations and differences in Web Hosting, Virtual Private Servers (VPS), and Cloud Servers / Virtual Data Centers.
Web Hosting is a place or center to accommodate all the files and data needed to create a website so that it can be accessed via the internet. The files and data can be in the form of images, scripts, e-mail, databases, domains, and others. With webhosting, business developers can create websites for their business or company so that they can be seen and read by others through the internet.
Virtual Private Servers work like a Cloud Server / VDC (Dedicated Server) and can be used as Web Hosting. Virtual Private Servers are virtual servers that allow the sharing of resources into virtual machines on the server. What distinguishes Web Hosting is that you are free to determine the Operating System you want to use and get access as root. In the VPS, you are free to install any application program, and you can install the panel as the parent of Web Hosting that can share resources to multiple hosting.
Cloud Server / Virtual Data Center (Dedicated Server)
Cloud Server / Virtual Data Center (Dedicated Server) is a cloud server that is very flexible and can be used for large-scale needs. You can determine the resource requirements according to your wishes, such as RAM, CPU, hard drive, etc. With Cloud Server / VDC, you can create virtual machines, containers, or dockers with many operating system choices.
With Cloud Server / VDC, users can use server resources / resources freely because server administration is managed or owned by the server owner. Dedicated servers are commonly used by hosting service providers (VPS / Shared Hosting), application service providers or websites that have high traffic and require high resources.
