The demand for VPS hosting is expected to rise over the forecast timespan due to rising need among organizations to have more control over their servers as compared to shared servers. A virtual server acts as a dedicated server as it allocates a specified amount of hard drive space, computing power, and memory to each client. Each user on the VPS server can access the virtual machine running on its own copy of an operating system, thus enabling users to set up their website with guaranteed resources. VPS hosting acts as a viable solution for organizations, who want the capabilities of a dedicated server but do not possess the resources to physically host and maintain the server hardware. Another factor driving the virtual private server market value is the growing demand for secure hosting. In VPS hosting, each virtual server is separated from other servers on the same physical server, thus providing a high level of security from cyber-attacks.

Furthermore, with the rising penetration of virtualization technology to reduce hardware installation and maintenance costs, the demand for cloud server hosting will increase as it supports the on-demand provisioning of resources for web hosting.

Industry Background

Traditionally, enterprises have been using shared web hosting, where multiple websites reside on a single web server. Such sites share server resources such as storage, memory, and IPs. The model is economical as different customers share the overall cost of server maintenance. With growing broadband penetration and digitalization, there has been a significant increase in the amount of content generated and exchanged over the internet. Consequently, the companies have started demanding independence with dedicated servers. VPS offers the independence of managing the entire resource of the server with no partner. The VPS scheme works basically by having many kinds of virtual web servers on top of an actual or physical web server.
