VPS Asia Pricing
Asia VPS Hosting
If you have just developed the website for your business, the next step is to find where to host it. You can choose between a dedicated server, shared hosting, and a virtual private server (VPS). The latter is the solution that offers the best tradeoff.
The rental of a VPS is not as expensive as a dedicated server. However, a VPS offers similar functionalities. Shared hosting, on the other hand, is inexpensive, but its performance is not recommended for a business website. Unless you can afford a dedicated server, VPS is the best solution for your business.
If your business offices are located somewhere in Asia, the obvious choice is using VPS Asia. Consider the VPS Asia located in Hong Kong for websites that will be accessed from the Asia-Pacific region mainly.
VPS Asia: Linux or Windows?
You must decide which operating system (OS) is more convenient for your VPS hosting. The decision depends on the programming language your applications are coded. For instance, Linux should be chosen if your applications were developed on PERL, Python, or Ruby. Choose Windows if your applications are developed on PHP or ASP.net.
Both platforms are good, and the VPS Asia in Hong Kong offers both OS alternatives. However, Linux has some advantages like:
- Lower cost, since Linux is open source and compatible with other open-source platforms;
- Fewer reboots and more efficient utilization of the server resources;
- Free support from the open-source community.
The above characteristics are not just qualitative, but they are reflected in the rental prices of the VPS. Let us take a look at the costs of web hosting on VPS Asia using Linux and Windows, respectively.
