Thread: Is VPS better?

    Is VPS better?


    Currently I have a dedicated server with a very low utilization.
    There are about 125 websites but only consumes 30GB of bandwidth/month.
    Only 4 GB of data on HD.
    Server loads no more than 1 at all times.
    Server specification: Intel P4 2.4 Ghz, 1 GB DDR

    Since it cost me $149.00/month I'd like to move the websites
    to a VPS (VPS cost me only $75/m). VPS specs:
    - Minimum Guaranteed CPU 384 Mhz +
    - Max CPU Burst 11,200 Mhz
    - Memory 1.5 GB Reg ECC DDR
    - 16 GB of space

    The VPS itself is hosted on an Intel Dual Xeon Hyper-threading server
    with 8GB of RAM. Max VPS on 1 server is 10 VPSs.

    Will I notice slower response from the server?
    Or is it better since the server has more memory with better cpu?

    Thanks for any responds.

    If you load is around 1 it means your P4 is fully loaded. I honestly think downgrading to a VPS will end up with worse performance for you..

    Take your current 2400Mhz that you're on at load one and make that less than 400Mhz and you're going to have insane loads and a slow VPS.

    You won't notice any performance gain with insane loads no matter how good the hardware behind the VPS is.

    Im guessing your asking not just for price but also becuase you use so little of your drive space right now. Unfortunately its a total solution you have to balance everything and while your heavily undersold on drive space your processing need could not take the hit. Stick with the dedicated.
