hello,

If someone can explain to me .... I have a few websites ... total visits is around 5000 -6000 visits per day.
I bought linux vps with 6 GB of memory installed cPanel / WHM. Right now I'm satisfied, but I would like to buy a quick and better server ...
I followed several offers FOR dedicate server, but some things are not clear ...

eg. dedicated server with 2 GB of memory can not be better and faster than the VPS server with 6 GB of RAM .. OR CAN ??

I wonder how can I know compacting reduces power VPS and Dedicated

hello,
If someone can explain to me ....
There is a detailed explanation which helps you know the difference between vps server and dedicated servers on this thread.
https://forumweb.hosting/13169-reseller-vs-vps-dedicated-(explained).html

If you are planning to move your VPS to a dedicated server then there are many good ones here
https://forumweb.hosting/132-dedicated-hosting-offers

I have a few websites ... total visits is around 5000 - 6000 visits per day.
5000 - 6000 visits per day is not much, how many visitors do you get per day? those are visits, not visitors.
What about your websites? they are based on Wordpress cms or custom sites?

I bought linux vps with 6 GB of memory installed cPanel / WHM. Right now I'm satisfied, but I would like to buy a quick and better server ...
Of course if you use a dedicated server instead of your current VPS, then it will be more stronger and give you better performance.

I followed several offers FOR dedicate server, but some things are not clear ...
eg. dedicated server with 2 GB of memory can not be better and faster than the VPS server with 6 GB of RAM .. OR CAN ??
I have not ever read any dedicated server offers that start with 2 GB of memory. Anyone confirms me?

I wonder how can I know compacting reduces power VPS and Dedicated
A dedicated server is more better than a VPS.
Maybe I will wait a web hosting provider comes to help you on this, because I am not a web hosting expert.


Good luck to you,
Harry

The reason Dedicated server is better is you get physical hardware with dedicated server, while with VPS the resources are virtually allocated from on large dedicated server, which can result in performance issue when the whole node is facing problem your VPS is also hampered due to some other VPS , which is not the case with dedicated server as the whole server resources are allocated for your websites.

Vps and dedicated

hi,
thank you for the quick response. I have to correct ... I HAVE 5000 - 6000 visitors a day.

These links are useful, but I still do not understand.
I use VPS with:

6GB Dedicated Memory, 100GB SSD Based Storage, 4vCPU Allocation and I pay for that $24.95 / mo. Right now I'm satisfied, but I would like to buy a quick and better server ... I guess that dedicates server is next level.

but it's not clear what dedicate server configuration is the next level...


I can buy a new VPS WITH:
24GB Dedicated Memory, 400GB SSD Based Storage, 6vCPU Allocation, 1Gbps Public Network Connection FOR $96.95 / mo.

Cheapest dedicated server in the same company is:

Intel Xeon E3-1230v5 Skylake (Std), 4 cores, SSD, 32GB DDR4 (Std), 1Gbps, $199/mo

I need advice: price / quality - VPS OR DEDICATED??

With VPS, all the resources is virtualized. like you said, it's 6 vCPU, but you might not know how the resources are allocated throughout all the virtualized server inside the dedicated ones. You also didn't mention what virtualization the VPS is on, whether it's KVM or OpenVZ, and that will also affect the resource sharing mechanism.

To make it more simple, a VPS is like a house with a bunch of rooms that will be rented to users, and, depending on what virtualization and config set by the provider, the room can get bigger and smaller instantly. if your neighbors are abusing resources or the owner is overselling the rooms, you will be affected, because you're sharing the house. Dedicated server means, you own the whole house.

Now, whether or not a 2gb RAM dedicated is not better than a 6gb RAM VPS, it still depends on the provider. On dedicated, you'll still get the whole CPU to yourself, for example. But all things being equal, dedicated server is always better than a VPS. So if you ask whether vps or dedi, if you have the money, then go ahead get a dedi. But for price to performance ratio and based on your site traffic, i think VPS should be fine.

I think the best choice will be to get a fully dedicated Server and install a virtual environment in it , than distribute your websites among the VPSes that you create inside your dedicated box

I think your best bet may be to upgrade the vps. Does your provider offer a bigger one? If so, the upgrade should be seamless. If you get a dedicated server you will need to do a migration and depending on your skill level could take a lot of time and money to pay for help. Moreover you will be paying for both servers until migration is complete.

Something to think about

I would suggest to go with a dedicated server any good processor like E3- or E5 with SSD disks and 1 Gbps port and in you can use technologies like nginx , litespeed to speed up and serve the site to huge visitors.

A jump from a VPS to a E3 or E5 Dedicated server with SSD and 1Gbps may be expensive unless the OP is willing to increase their budget. Again litespeed license will add to the budget. Just sharing my thoughts.

It all depends on your budget, if the budget stays low i would recommend a VPS, that way you get better hardware components than on a low end dedicated server. Even tho the resources are shared taking in consideration the provider offers a good service and doesn't oversell, the perfoamnce due to the newer hardware will be superior. However if the budget is flexible try to go for a E3 or Xeon D series dedicated server.

With the amount of traffic you are receiving, I'm not convinced you will even notice a performance increase.

I suggest you stay on VPS for budget issue, unless you're facing constraint on the responsiveness, then you move out the heavier traffic website to another VPS. But then again, it depend on your website whether database intensive (read or write) or both. And each website per visitor how much memory do you use? Have you look at the memory taken for each website by viewing the processes running by web server.
Its hard to recommend you based on the information given now. I suggest you give more data in order for best recommendation.

Just based on what I'm reading on this thread, I'd stick with an upgrade to your VPS.
