Why you Should Host your Business Website on a VPS

VPS is often always considered the next step in the hosting world after shared hosting, especially for beginning webmasters. Many consider VPS as the bridge between Shared Hosting and Dedicated Hosting accounts. However, if you have a business that relies on your website, then consider getting a VPS account instead. Let’s learn why.

What is VPS and Why Choose It?

VPS is short for virtual private server and it offers more power and resource for your website or web app. It’s better than shared but lesser than a dedicated server in terms of pricing and performance. Generally, a VPS offers more control than a shared hosting site, but your hosting environment is fundamentally the same to shared hosting as you still share the same server with other users, though you have your or private space/resource share, hence the name.

And like a dedicated server, you have more control over your account as it allows you to configure advanced settings as well as install additional software that you need.

Finally, with a Windows VPS, you can easily use RDP to connect to your server as if you are physically present on-site. There are many cheap Windows VPS out there to start your business and many of them are flexible – meaning you can start with a moderate amount of resources then easily scaling it up when needed.

When to Move to VPS/Reasons to Choose VPS

Slow Loading – if you are from a shared hosting platform, once your website gains more visitors and traffic, it will start slowing down. As it continues to grow, your shared hosting account won’t be able to catch up. Even if it says you have unlimited bandwidth and storage, there’s still a soft limit on how much you can use and once you hit that, you’re going to encounter internal server error also known as error 500. Once you begin experiencing this kind of errors, then it’s time to consider getting or upgrading your account to VPS.

More control – if you want more control over your hosting account, then VPS is the best choice. Unlike a shared hosting account, you can’t have root access. In addition to that, you can install software on a VPS whereas you’ll have to make do with the software package that comes with a shared hosting account. And like what we’ve learned earlier, you can easily access a Windows VPS package using RDP (depending on the host) making server management far easier.

Multiple sites – if you have multiple websites, it’s better to choose VPS hosting as it offers more power, accurate resources and better control. In shared hosting, you also have the ability to host multiple sites, but it can only handle too much just like what we’ve learned earlier.

If your business relies on your website – if you rely in your website for your business needs, then it’s no brainer that you get VPS hosting. You have more control, more resource and more flexibility/scalability with a VPS hosting.

In the era of instant communication, call centers have evolved as a company’s nerve center — it is here that most customer contact takes place and here that customers form their opinions about the company. HTI’s call handling solutions help companies manage these centers to provide the fastest service thereby ensuring caller satisfaction.

HTI offers two methods for improving call center management. The first is to automate routine inquiries and functions, thereby offloading these tasks from customer service personnel. Interactive Voice Response (IVR) and/or Web-Enablement accomplish this by allowing callers to use their telephone or Web browser to directly access the information they need and act upon it. On average, this can offload 30% to 60% of a company’s total call volume.

Once an automation solution is implemented, companies can look to improving the management of live calls. HTI offers a variety of solutions including Call Queuing, Call Routing, and Computer-Telephony Integration. These applications contribute to better service, the reduction of expenses, faster call handling and increased caller satisfaction.
