In VPS hosting, you have your own allotment of resources and it allows your visitors to enjoy faster loading times while in shared hosting that server may get sometimes swamped by requests or overloaded which might cause it to stop.

A good VPS hosting provider will always actively monitor its networks. This ensures the security of a server and defends it from malicious software, hacking, and virus attacks while in shared hosting, it can face a security issue by the server. These servers are usually affected by hacking attacks .

In VPS hosting, you have the flexibility to choose the operating system and software you want to install on your server while in shared hosting, you have to work on the application and software provided by the hosting provider and cannot use any other software aside.
