cPanel Web Hosting vs cPanel Virtual server
Shared hosting is a cost effective way of purchasing cPanel and receiving the feature rich services cPanel provides, without the need to purchase a licence and install the backend for cPanel. The term shared means you will be sharing space with many different users. Having Virtual server hosting to manage cPanel is the opposite of shared. The space you will be utilising is not shared with any other users and you will receive the full speed of the hardware provided to your VPS. The management of the backend up to the end user. With a Virtual server you will require a licence. This allows you to have an unlimited amount of domains attached to your cPanel VPS server.
Each server has dedicated resources assigned to your server and allows you to run multiple workloads and intensive SQL applications.
Security for hosting is crucial, with the capabilities of these systems to manage your hosting, it opens you up to being hacked from multiple sources. We recommend installing a two factor authentication system to only allow access to the provided pin from your mobile devices.
