Frequently asked questions

What is VPS Hosting?

VPS is short for Virtual Private Server. VPS hosting is the perfect balance between price-point and computing power. It occupies that middle ground between shared hosting and dedicated hosting, making it ideal for growing or complex websites. These websites may not regularly experience frequent high-volume traffic but have steadily increasing traffic, with occasional surges.

Although virtual server hosting is shared with other domains, you're granted your own dedicated allotment of CPU time and memory. While you do have VPS neighbors, there are way fewer domains utilizing that server than you would have with shared hosting.

What Are the Benefits of VPS Hosting Plans?

There are five main benefits to VPS hosting:

  • Affordability - As mentioned, VPS is an ideal balance between cost paid and benefits received. In many ways, you have the benefits of a dedicated server, but at a portion of the cost.
  • Control - If you wish to restart your server for installed applications or similar reasons, you can do so at your discretion. Even though the server is technically shared, the virtual nature of this hosting experience allows you to manage your resources without affecting anyone else's hosting services.
  • Customization - VPS allows you to have your chosen operating system as well as server applications. You can alter these applications, or services, or make any changes you see fit. This gives you a completely custom VPS hosting experience, providing you with the flexibility you need.
  • Dedicated Server Resources - On a VPS server, you have a dedicated amount of CPU time, memory, ram, and bandwidth. Although a portion of this is shared, these dedicated resources mean that you are far less likely to be impacted by other websites, should they experience high traffic volume.
  • Privacy - Since your operating system is your own, no domains on your server can possibly access your information, data, or files. This protects your domain and provides peace of mind that your important information is safe.

Do I Need VPS Hosting?

If you are a business that receives frequent traffic and expects further growth, a VPS plan is ideal for you. The great thing about VPS is that it can expand with your site. This scalable nature allows you to adjust the amount of dedicated server space in accordance with traffic growth.

What is the Difference Between Shared, VPS, and Dedicated Hosting?

Shared Hosting

Shared hosting is the most affordable form but provides the least amount of power, memory, and bandwidth. Since other small websites share the server, a traffic surge to one could potentially cause website crashes or slowdowns. Shared hosting is ideal for smaller sites or blogs that do not experience high traffic volume.

VPS Hosting

VPS is that perfect middle ground between the shared and dedicated hosting. It allots you a portion of dedicated resources and flexibility without the cost of having a dedicated server. VPS hosting offers a great mix of scalability, privacy, control, and customization, making it ideal for growing companies.

Dedicated Hosting

Dedicated hosting is the most expensive of the three options but packs the most firepower and features. With dedicated hosting, your domain is the sole user of that server, granting you the ability to handle high volumes of traffic or traffic surges. Dedicated servers are optimal for quickly growing or large companies that see a large amount of regular internet traffic.

Is VPS Hosting Secure?

Your domain's security is very important, especially for sites that use and store user credit card information. Your domain and your user's data needs protection, which VPS provides diligently.

VPS's customizable and virtual nature can provide extremely high levels of configurations and security.
