What is the difference between Shared hosting, VPS Hosting and Dedicated Hosting?

Here is a guide we we have created about our hosting plans and how they compare to each other.

Shared Hosting Comparison

Shared Hosting Comparison

Shared Hosting is very similar to living in an Apartment Complex. All residents are in the same location and must share the available resources with everyone. These may include such things as the pool, parking lot, and playground. In shared hosting, all accounts must share the available resources with all the other accounts on the server. These include CPU, memory, and disk space.


VPS Hosting Comparison

VPS Hosting Comparison

VPS Hosting is similar to owning a Condo. While you still share things on the property, you are ultimately responsible for maintaining your own property and repairs inside the condo. There is also significantly fewer residents per building and assigned parking. On a Virtual Private Server, you are assigned resources that are not shared by everyone. The overall CPU and memory are shared across all accounts on the machine, but at the same time, portions of those resources are always dedicated to each account. This allows for more power and flexibility than being on a shared account.


Dedicated Hosting Comparison

Dedicated Hosting Comparison

Dedicated hosting provides set resource limits not shared resources. More control and access.
Dedicated Hosting can be compared to owning a house. You are allowed and have access to all resources available on the machine. No one Else’s account resides on the machine (your house) and would not be capable of tapping into your resources.

WordPress Speed and Performance Suggestions

While we are constantly working to improve our systems and speed things up on our end, there is always something that can be done on your end too.

WordPress out of the box is not optimized for speed, so we suggest a few different options to help speed things up.

Here are some tools of the trade that we love and use often….
Pingdom Speed test – https://tools.pingdom.com/ (Test the load time of that page, analyze it and find bottlenecks.)
GTmetrix – https://gtmetrix.com/ (GTmetrix gives you insight on how well your site loads and provides actionable recommendations on how to optimize it.)

To get started, the first recommendation is to use a cache plugin like WP Super cache (Free – https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-super-cache/), or WP Rocket (Paid – https://wp-rocket.me/).

What is caching? Cache is an area in the computer’s memory that stores recently used information. When a site is cached, it means the site’s pages, images, files and Web objects are stored on the user’s local hard drive. This in turn means that when a user opens a frequently accessed file, the browser will have most (if not all) of its files cached.

When a browser doesn’t have to retrieve new information every time a site is accessed it results in faster page load times. Caching plugins work the same way. They save dynamically generated HTML files in the cache and serve them next time a request is made instead of re-loading all of the PHP scripts from WordPress.

Next, we suggest the use of a CDN. Some options are Cloudflare (Free – http://www.cloudflare.com), MaxCDN (Paid – http://www.maxcdn.com)

If you are just getting started and do not have the budget for a premium CDN system, we suggest you start off with cloudflare. They offer a great system at no cost to you.

All of our hosting plans have this pre-installed in the cPanel system, you just have to activate it.

And Lastly, the use of image smashing plugins is also very helpful. Some that come to mind are WP Smushit (FREE – https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-smushit/), And EWWW (FREE – https://wordpress.org/plugins/ewww-image-optimizer/)

These systems will take all the images on your site and will compress and optimize them while keeping their quality intact.

We would be happy to go through your site and help you come up with ideas on how to improve your sites speed and performance. This also goes for any other questions you may have about your website or our services. Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in doing so. http://www.rfehosting.com/support

We started out with WordPress and RFE but, not knowing much about hosting, we strayed when a good friend of mine offered his services to us at a discount. What he neglected to tell us was, that unlike RFE, his service was only available when he was – and he was often out of town or away on holiday.

When our site went down at 2AM and I learned that he was on a cruise with his family, I went back to RFE who was fast to get us up and running, even though we had left them before! How is that for excellent customer service!

Any time we have a problem, which is always on my end, Aaron is fast to help us. Whether it’s a plug-in issue or just my ignorance of something so simple, I can always rely on Aaron to help me out, no matter what time of day it is!

SSD Hosting: Faster, Safer, Smarter


If you’re looking to upgrade your current hosting solution and move on to a more powerful option, then a solid state drive virtual private server (SSD VPS) might be right for you. Sound like a mouthful? Don’t worry–these terms aren’t as complicated as they sound–and, once implemented, they can help make your website faster, safer, and smarter!

The bullet points below offer a quick explanation to all this terminology for those who may not be familiar with it:

  • A server is simply the physical computer where all the data composing your website resides–and where that data is transmitted from.
  • A virtual private server (VPS) is a certain kind of server designed to meet the needs of website owners. A VPS is a shared option, which means that several different websites will all be on the same computer as yours in order to lower costs. However, virtual private servers are partitioned off, (thus the virtual privacy) which gives you better speed and increased privacy.
  • A solid state drive refers to the precise drive where all of your data resides. Generally speaking, the basic, inexpensive, low-grade option is an HDD (hard disk drive) which is read through physical movement, much like a CD-ROM would be read as it spins inside your drive. SSD, which, again, stands for solid state drive, does not require physical movement in order to be read. For this reason, they oftentimes function with more speed and security.

Is SSD VPS hosting right for you?
The answer to this question will ultimately depend on your current online capabilities and objectives. If you are interested in exploring your hosting options in order to find a solution that fits both your needs and your budget, we encourage you to get in touch with RFE Hosting today.
