VPS Hosting: Instant Setup to the Rescue

Nothing’s worse than trying to use someone’s website when you absolutely need information right now, and it’s unavailable. Luckily for site owners VPS hosting is here for the rescue.

Last semester when attempting to figure out where the heck my classes were located, the school’s website was crippled by the influx of new freshmen that were trying to do the same. Imagine over 20,000 people trying to access this site at the same time, and because of this, the site is rendered practically useless.

We’ve had customers of ours face all sorts of hardships with their sites. Whether they’re featured on a popular TV show, or they’ve seen an unprecedented traffic spike due to such sites as Reddit (commonly referred to as slashdotting).

It’s often difficult to get a new dedicated server online quickly enough to mitigate this effect. Imagine that instead of tens of thousands of college students, it’s tens of thousands of dollars! Quite the predicament, right?

Not a problem though! VPS hosting to the rescue! VPS computing instances are able to be setup in an instant to provide additional resources as demand requires. Even better, if you only anticipate a short burst, you can grab a few up, use them while they’re needed, and then toss them the next month.

With proper planning and deployment, your site can be profitable regardless of the situation. This includes a popular product, blog, or the first day of college.
