Apart from these facilities, other features of Shared Hosting are quite similar to VPS Hosting. While Custom Control Panel is available on the Shared Hosting, VPS Hosting, on the other hand, offers Advanced Control Panel.
An advanced control panel is a user-friendly tool that lets you control all features of the hosting account. This control panel is based on the database and offers an inbuilt help function on every page of the control panel.
Components of VPS Control Panels are:
System Administrator – it provides the facility to manage users, groups, system services, and other necessary operations in a VPS environment.
Workgroup Administrator – it provides the facility to manage the website’s settings, files, directories, email, mailing lists, applications, and other features of websites.
My Control Panel – it manages the personal directory and email accounts of the end-users.
POP3 e-mail account, Web based e-mail, E-commerce, and immediate account setup are some common features available on both Shared Hosting and VPS Hosting.
For beginners, it is recommended to select the option Shared Hosting to host their websites. Though it is described that VPS Hosting option provides better control and security of the website, the cost of subscribing to VPS Hosting matters. In a Shared Hosting environment, all websites use common operating systems and server resources. This is the main reason behind the slow performance of the web server and is regarded as a drawback of the Shared Hosting option. But still, it is true that both Shared Hosting and VPS Hosting have their own advantages.
