VPS Hosting That’s Faster Than AWS, Rackspace, and Digital Ocean
Our servers outperform Rackspace, Amazon, and Digital Ocean across the board. We enlisted the help of Cloud Spectator, an independent 3rd party cloud analytics firm, to benchmark our cloud products against the competition.
The result? Our server performance is up to 200% faster.
A 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. This parent server splits up portions of itself for other virtual servers through software called a hypervisor.
A Cloud VPS instance can store multiple sites, email, DNS, databases, users, but most importantly these aspects can be managed through an easy to use control panel. Since a Cloud VPS is a simulation of a physical server, it also provides SSH/SFTP and Root access, allowing for libraries, modules and other services to be configured.
You’ll have control to resize your server to accommodate for sudden spikes in traffic or scale down for post-seasonal businesses. By resizing you’ll be able to upgrade or downgrade your VPS instance allowing you to pay for only what you use.
Cloud VPS servers not only provide peace of mind for small to medium businesses but they also offer a robust combination of benefits:
Quick Scale-Ups for Changes in Traffic
Pay for What You Use
Host Unlimited Sites
Contract Free Hosting
Various OS Choices
SSH and Root Access
Yes, by default all of our servers come managed! Our servers are configured with a Fully Managed image using your choice of cPanel/WHM or Plesk control panel. Management level is determined by which server image is being used. If desired, you can customize your desired level of management level. View full details of our management tiers here. We’re confident we’ve got you covered!
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.
If you are new to hosting or don’t know your current set up, contact our helpful Solutions Architects! Our team of experts is waiting 24/7 to assess your needs and make those tough decisions for you. Get used to a group of experts on your side!
On our VPS platform we currently offer the following 64-bit operating systems:
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard
Windows Server 2016 Standard Edition
Unfortunately the VPS platform does not allow installation of custom operating systems. If the offered operating systems are not the right fit you may want to consider a Dedicated Server.
Our Dedicated Servers allow for the installation of 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?
Moving a website requires special attention, skilled experts and dedicated time, but the Migrations team can transfer your data on your timeline and with minimal downtime. Whether you are looking to have more room for customization or if you just have outgrown your current hosting environment, our Migrations team is here to make the transition as smooth as possible.
Our cloud provisioning system is able to rapidly deploy new servers after orders have been verified. The setup time for a VPS server actually varies depending on if you are using a Linux or Windows operating system. On Linux based servers 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 to accommodate your traffic.
Being able to scale not only means that you’ll have the power to serve out your customers’ request but that you also won’t be paying for anything you don’t use. Our options of “Quick and Full Resizes” enable 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. As with fixed resources, scarcity can lead to less than optimal performance for the resource-intensive application, which is why Dedicated Servers often outperform VPS instances.
The two environments have plenty of overlapping qualities, but most importantly Dedicated Servers render greater security, customization and excellent availability. With granular control, you are free to customize hardware components like disk space or RAM and installation of unique operating systems. More substantial computing power (CPUs) and disk space allow Dedicated Servers enhanced performance for high amounts of traffic. When uptime and performance are critical to your business, Dedicated Servers are second to none for hosting.
The beauty of having an environment that can expand is that you can upgrade your Cloud VPS at any time. Consequently, your server has limitless abilities to host as many websites as you would like.

Hear What Others are Saying About Our VPS Hosting
Don’t get me wrong, there are some great hosts out there. But there is only one that I *love*. Liquid Web is, hands down, the best of them all. And they keep getting better year after year.
Incredibly fast, very responsive and incredibly helpful. I’m a newbie in the hosting space and everyone that I’ve dealt with at Liquid Web has been extraordinarily patient and has helped me figure out what I do not yet understand and explain everything fully and completely.
After having shared hosting plans with other providers for many years, I switched all of my sites to Liquid Web a few months ago for my first VPS experience. It’s been smooth, fast, and easy to use. At one point I suddenly ran out of disk space, and within minutes I was able to use their system to upgrade my plan and move my site to a larger partition.
