Managed VPS FAQs
A VPS or Virtual Private Server is a virtual operating system (or instance) that resides inside a parent server and shares resources with other virtual servers. The parent server divides up resources between all of the virtual servers via software called a hypervisor. The hypervisor creates and runs the VPS instances.
A Cloud VPS instance is just like a regular server and is managed through an easy to use control panel. Since a Cloud VPS duplicates many of the properties of a physical server, it also provides similar functionality and processes.
In a Cloud VPS setting, you’ll have full control to resize your server up to accommodate spikes in traffic or, scale it down for post-seasonal businesses. The ability to upgrade or downgrade allows you to pay for only the resources you use on the VPS.
Cloud VPS servers not only provide peace of mind for small to medium businesses but they also offer a robust combination of ancillary benefits:
• Quick Resizing for Changes in Traffic Flow
• Only Pay for What You Use
• Host Unlimited Sites (based on the resources available)
• Very Cost-effective
• Contract Free Hosting
• Multiple OS Choices Available
• Daily Backups (via your Manage Interface)
• SSH and Full Root Access
• Highly Stable and Secure
Our VPS plans have multiple management levels to suit every business need. Our primary recommendation is our Fully Managed VPS. This management level provides all of the support and assistance you’ll need as a new server owner. Confident in your skills to run your own server with just a little help needed at times? Our Core Managed option may be for you. For larger firms with a dedicated IT staff, our Unmanaged option may work best for you.
We also include multiple management panels to assist you in managing your server:
Other management panels like Directadmin, Webmin and CWP are also supported on most all of our servers.
You don’t have to hire an expert to find a Cloud VPS server that is right for you. Your current hosting provider can provide details about your OS, CPU, RAM and Disk usage to help you make an informed decision. Also, any current traffic logs can help narrow down your choice even further!

On our VPS platform we currently offer the following 64-bit operating systems:
• CentOS 7
• Ubuntu – 16.04, 18.04
• Debian 8, 9 and 10
• Fedora 31
• Windows Server – 2012 and 2016
Unfortunately, the VPS platform does not allow installation of custom operating systems. If the noted operating systems are not the right fit for you, you may want to consider a Dedicated Server. Our Dedicated Servers allow for the installation of multiple, custom operating systems. Additionally, they provide the ability to fully-customize your hosting environment!
You don’t! Our Migrations team’s sole focus is to take that pressure off you by transferring your data from your old server or provider. Did we mention migrations come free with our Cloud VPS server?

Our proprietary cloud provisioning system is able to deploy new servers very rapidly after your order has been verified. The actual setup time for a VPS server can vary depending on which operating system you choose. If you are using a Linux based system, you should see the VPS online within 15-30 minutes. For a Windows based server, you will see the VPS online within 1-2 hours.
Absolutely! If your business goes through seasons or if you’re about to debut a new product line, our Cloud VPS can be upgraded or adjusted to accommodate your traffic.
Being able to scale not only means that you’ll have the power to meet all of your customers’ requests, but you will also be able to scale down so you won’t be paying for resources you don’t use or need!
Our “Quick and Full Resizes” options enables you to account for sudden bursts of traffic or long-term growth.
A Cloud VPS is an emulation of a computer, also known as a virtual private server, that lives within a parent server and shares resources with other virtual servers. A Dedicated Server is a stand-alone, physical server that does not share resources. Because a VPS shares finite resources with other Virtual instances on the parent, overuse of can lead to less than optimal performance for any resource-intensive applications, which is why Dedicated Servers often outperform VPS instances.
Cloud VPS’s and Dedicated servers share several overlapping qualities, but most importantly, the Dedicated Servers provide greater security, extra customization options, and higher availability and uptime. With more granular controls, you are free to customize hardware components like CPU, disk space and RAM as well as the use of a unique operating system. these allow Dedicated servers increased performance for high traffic sites. When uptime and performance are critical to your business, Dedicated Servers are unrivaled in performance and value.
The quick answer is, you are only limited by the amount of resources you have available on the VPS! The beauty of having a virtual environment that can increase/decrease as needed is, you can upgrade or downgrade your Cloud VPS at any time based on your needs. Consequently, your server has limitless abilities to host as many websites as you would like.
