I have a question: what is the difference between shared hosting and VPS/VDS hosting?
For example, I created a website, it is on my local computer. I want to place it on the internet. What am I supposed to do? Use a website hosting service or buy a server, set it up, etc.

Maybe I asked a stupid question, I do not rummage at all in this ...



I can advise VPS.
If your site is large enough, or you will be faced with the choice of shared hosting for $3, then I advise you to opt for vps. You will have to study the work of the modules both on shared hosting and on vps.

VPS nearly always does not require an admin, since the support is provided by the hosting company, admins are required on dedicated servers.

Hello. If I want to explain on my fingers, then VPS is a more expensive, but reliable data storage system (website, blog, online store). VPS has many advantages over conventional hosting. I strongly recommend that you contact a service hosting provider and rent a server from them (especially if the site is small and is used for branding a person / company). In any case, you will not lose anything if you transfer your site to hosting, and then to VPS. I want to warn you right away that VPS is more expensive, and administration is more difficult.


VDS (Virtual Dedicated Server) or VPS (Virtual Private Server) is a service where users rent a virtual server to host your website software. VDS is a server with large resources that are somewhat limited by the user. VPS is a server with limited resources, but without restrictions, since the user has full access to the server. Summary: The difference is only in the number of resources provided and access to them...
