VPS should offer more resources than a shared host. A shared host is shared by hundreds / thousands of users where as a it should be tens in case of VPS. However since most hosts oversell these days, it is not always true. There are cases when you outgrow, you are forced to go to a dedicated server.

Another reason is root access. You can configure any software the way you want, in case of a VPS. Also you are assured of minimum resources and should not suffer even if the other users abuse the system.

The root access and also the privilege to install any third party applications has made VPS more popular. Unlike Shared Hosting, it comes with Guaranteed RAM.

Advantage of VPS is better performance and you dont have to worry about the hassles of shared hosting. And you will get full access to the server and custom tune server for your needs.

The benefits of VPS server has its personal processes files, disk quotas, and complete root entry, you will have your own IP address, you can modify or delete any of the file within the system. In short VPS advantages are high performance, security, host unlimited websites and customization.

Especially since you can customize to your taste. You can not do that with shared hosting.Also if you want to learn SSH, etc. ensuring a VPS is great, because even if you mess up something that can always reinstall the VPS and start again.

These are just some reasons Client pick up the occasional VPS.

1. Security. (I find an environment that Client know what is safe/secure is much safer than the average shared environment)
2. Client need a more dedicated environment, as my sites are resource intensive.
3. Some Client running very light sites that can run on 128 MB - 256 MB, which ends up being cheaper than shared hosting and gives the control that customer like.
4. Client will not be able to operate and maintain a site all the time, as it is for a friend (sorry, my clients sites come first, followed by my own! ), so I purchase managed hosting to just ease off the worst of the burden.
5. Client need root access to configure stuff the way they need it configured.

I would like to say is performance in VPS does not means better than shared hosting. This is because you are only have guaranteed 128MB or 256MB RAM for each VPS, but for shared hosting server, at least there are Quad Core Xeon or it's using clustered server which should be able to provide better or good performance for all accounts even it's in shared environment.

The advantages for VPS should be having better security, root access available, better control for your VPS, and you are the full administrator of your server.
