Dedicated Low-cost server VS PlanetHoster Virtual Server



Looking at the web hosting market, you’ve probably noticed the ridiculous price of dedicated servers at some suppliers.

The price of dedicated servers is equivalent or even lower at times than our virtual servers (VPS).

So why opt for a virtual server PlanetHoster rather than a low cost dedicated server !?


Situation: Dedicated low-cost Server

Imagine, Marco, manager of several websites. Marco is looking for a dedicated hosting following a disastrous experience in shared hosting. He wants to have its own server to avoid being disturbed by other clients, but also to have better control over their hosting environment (activate certain functions PHP etc).

Marco knows how to tweak here and there. He does not have too much server management experience but he knows the base.

So he did his research on the web to find the web host that suits him. He comes across an offer that seems perfect it. A dedicated server Quad Core, 2x1TB etc. All for only 60 euros! He signed immediately.

Marco gets his dedicated server. It goes without saying that he must connect in a command line to perform the desired manipulations. After several hours of fervent work, he managed to barely complete the migration of the websites he manages to his dedicated server.

All is well for several days, despite the fact that there are some slowdowns here and there, which, Marco can not find the origin.

Overnight, he is cautioned by his dedicated server provider stating that his server sends spam! Marco tries to find the problem without success, unfortunately. He is powerless before the problem and tries to resort to assistance from his host. His host told him clearly that he is not responsible for the management of his dedicated server. Marco must then turn to outsourcing! He contacted someone from the outside so that they fix the problem for him. The technician in question is charging him nearly 300 € in honorary fees to correct the SPAM problem.

A few weeks later, Marco’s dedicated server crashes. Nothing works, he can not even access his dedicated server! His host informed him of corruption on his hard drives, Marco lost all data! Marco, who thought initially it was a good deal on a dedicated server at 60 euros, is left with angry customers that have lost their web site, e-mail and more!


Situation: Premium PlanetHoster Virtual Server
