A Virtual Private Server is a section of a server that’s dedicated specifically to you. Unlike shared hosting, the resources allocated to your section of the server cannot be tapped into by your server “roommates,” which provides peace of mind.

FAQ

What is a website host?

Since websites need to “exist” in cyberspace, the host is simply the server on which the website is stored. The host provider is the company you rent the storage space from.

How many page views should I be getting before I upgrade?

Although there are other factors to consider (like if your website uses a MySQL database for eCommerce or client/customer information), generally you’ll want VPS Hosting if you’re getting a few hundred page views each day. Plans then scale up to accommodate your growing website.

Don’t VPS and Shared Hosting both “share” a server? What’s the difference?

While both types of hosting have your website share a server with other websites, VPS hosting allocates a certain amount of resources to your website that cannot be tapped by the others, while Shared Hosting can sometimes cause slowdowns in your website because others are using too many resources.

I’m just starting a website, should I use VPS?

It depends. If you’re reasonably certain you’ll be getting moderate traffic, especially on an eCommerce website, then there’s a good chance VPS is for you. Consult our guide above to get an idea of which plan might be right for you.

I have a question that wasn’t covered here. Where can I find an answer?

Virtual Private Server buyer’s guide.

VPS Hosting offers a good mix of resources, security, and value. In this Online Buyer’s Guide, you’ll learn about VPS Hosting, what other options are available, and how to choose a plan that’s right for you.

What Is VPS Hosting?

A Virtual Private Server is a section of a server that’s dedicated specifically to you. Unlike shared hosting, the resources allocated to your section of the server cannot be tapped into by your server “roommates,” which provides peace of mind.

It also provides more resources than Shared Hosting, including upgraded storage, bandwidth, RAM, and CPU.

Because VPS Hosting is customized by using the command line and installing your own security, it’s generally preferred by more technical users. However, there are ways to make it simple to manage yourself, or even have others do it for you.

Alternatives to VPS Hosting

Shared Hosting

The cheapest hosting option, Shared Hosting lets you split a server with other websites. The websites share a finite amount of storage and processing power.

Reputable hosting providers don’t allow servers to hold too many websites, but even they can’t always stop bottlenecking (slowdowns) because too many websites are using too many resources at once.

Dedicated Server

A whole server dedicated to your website(s). These plans provide the most storage, RAM, and bandwidth, and can hold several websites.

These are also the most expensive plans, and only needed by those who have multiple high-traffic websites.

The Bottom Line: When to Choose VPS Hosting

If your current website experiences slowdowns or is starting to gain traction with users (approaching a few hundred page views per day), then it’s probably time to switch to VPS Hosting.

Now that you know your alternatives to VPS, we’ll tell you how to decide which VPS plan is right for you.

Choosing the VPS Hosting Plan for You

With four VPS Hosting plans to choose from, it can be tough to determine which one is right for you. Though all the plans differ with RAM and storage, the RAM is definitively more important when deciding which plan to go with.

Economy

Recommended for a medium-sized personal website with moderate traffic (up to a couple hundred daily page views). With a full GB of RAM, your users won’t experience the dreaded “500 internal server error” unless your website runs many plugins and scripts. Although, you still might experience some slowdown with a MySQL database. 40GB of disk space (storage) is more than enough for a personal website—you won’t run out.

Value

2GB of RAM lets your website handle a good amount of plugins and scripts, as well as moderate traffic. The big difference is its ability to handle a MySQL database, so fairly-successful eCommerce and business websites should have this package, at the minimum. 60GB of disk space will hold everything you need and more.

Deluxe

Now we’re getting into highly-trafficked (or even multiple-website) territory—several hundred page views per day. 4GB of RAM will handle even high spikes in traffic, and MySQL databases will be no sweat. 120GB of disk space is once again more than enough.

Ultimate

For successful websites with heavy traffic (up to thousands of daily page views). 8 GB of RAM will handle databases, and can be enough for multiple websites, as long as the combined traffic isn’t too high. 240 GB is likely more than you’ll ever use.

Server Management

When you choose a hosting plan, you’ll have the option of managing your server yourself, or having a managed or fully-managed plan.

Self-Managed

The default option for VPS, you manage your server the way you want it. Use SSH (Secure Shell) and the command line to tweak performance settings. Choose which updates to install and customize security settings to your liking. This plan is for the technically advanced user.

Managed

Your hosting provider takes care of the major upkeep for you. Security patches, updates, and backups are automatically applied. Automatic malware scans keep your website safe, and you’ll have an easy-to-use control panel to adjust important settings to your liking.

Fully-Managed

A step up from Managed Hosting, a Fully-Managed Hosting plan has the provider take care of all the configurations for you, including technical aspects like DNS configuration, load problems, software upgrades, task automation, and more. While you still have access to cPanel to tweak things to your liking, you also get a dedicated team of server admin experts to guard against bigger security threats.

Security

Essential

Defend your site against hackers and malware. Automatic daily scans detect malware on your site and our guaranteed cleanup removes it.

Deluxe

Block malware before it reaches your site and stop DDoS attacks with our advanced WAF (Web Application Firewalls). Plus, boost page load time 70% with our CDN (Content Delivery Network). A CDN is a network of servers that provide high performance by using ones that are physically closer to the user and origin of the webpage.
