Do I need a VPS or not?

We tried to collect the factors which may indicate you need a Virtual Private Server for your website(s).

  • Your website is visited by many people daily (more than a thousand visits per day). You'd need a VPS for better responsiveness and speed from the server.
  • You have multiple websites that together load the webserver / drive high traffic.
  • You use scripts / "heavy" CMS that require more server resources (RAM, CPU).
  • Your website's scripts require special server settings / configuration.
  • You need to have your own name servers.
  • You maintain / serve some websites of your clients and need to host them all together.
  • You just want to control all server settings by yourself.

If something from above is applicable to your website, most probably should move to a VPS.
