What Is VPS Hosting?
A virtual private server (VPS) is a virtual machine that runs its own copy of an operating system, and customers may have superuser-level access to that operating system instance, so they can install almost any software that runs on that OS.
For many purposes they are functionally equivalent to a dedicated physical server, and being software-defined, are able to be much more easily created and configured.
They are priced much lower than an equivalent physical server, but as they share the underlying physical hardware with other VPSs, performance may be lower, and may depend on the workload of other instances on the same hardware node.
VPS Hosting For WordPress
All of our virtual private servers have been designed especially for high traffic WordPress websites. We understand the needs of our customers with large audiences and have developed accordingly by integrating with Softaculous to allow for one-click installations and free and automatic SSL certificates.
For an additional software-licensing fee, we can also add automated nightly Malware scanning and removal to your VPS for added security especially with WordPress themes and plugins.

Guide to Choosing the Best VPS Hosting Provider
A VPS, or virtual private server, is a type of web hosting that is highly efficient and affordable. With a VPS, you can be assured that your website data is safe. A VPS will provide enough resources to perform the functions of your website. Because of its advantages, you should have an understanding of how a VPS can help you with your business.
There are significant benefits with hosting on a VPS. Hosting multiple websites on a VPS is possible without sacrificing performance. This can also make it a more cost-effective option for your business. You can get complete control of the VPS by using full root SSH access. There is also flexibility in running and testing a wide range of applications on it.
What’s more, hosting unlimited subdomains and domains on a VPS is possible. You can install and reboot the operating system anytime you wish. This type of hosting is especially suited for ecommerce websites. You can customize the VPS according to your requirements.
The stability of your website is also guaranteed since there will be enough hosting resources to support its functions. Since you get ample hosting resources with VPS, the website will perform better and faster. The server can also be scaled when needed. The VPS can also be deployed instantly, so there is no need for a long wait to set it up.
When it comes to reliability, ability to customize, security, and stability, nothing can beat VPS hosting. You just need to choose the right VPS hosting provider. Below are some important things to consider when choosing a VPS hosting provider.
24/7 Live Customer Support
The VPS host must have 24/7 support through phone or live chat along with a comprehensive knowledge base. This way, if you face difficulties with the VPS during odd hours, the technical team of your web host will help resolve your problem.
Linux or Windows
If you run websites using Windows technologies like Microsoft SQL Server and ASP.NET, then you should consider Windows VPS hosting. Linux-based VPS is a good choice for MySQL and PHP websites.
Managed and Unmanaged Service
If you are familiar with shell commands, hosting control panels, troubleshooting, and basic server administration, an unmanaged VPS hosting is a great option. If you choose an unmanaged VPS, you must be capable of managing the software, applications, and services installed on the VPS. You must be familiar with uninstalling and installing, server performance tweaking, resource monitoring, and troubleshooting of technical issues.
If you are not able to manage these things on your own, then you are better off with managed VPS hosting.
Reliability and Uptime
Check the amount of uptime that the web host can offer. It is recommended that the uptime is at a score of at least 99.5 percent. Anything below 99 percent is not acceptable. Check the VPS provider including its past uptime records. Consider the reviews on different blogs, forums, and third-party review websites.
Determine the resources of VPS hosting that you need. Look for the host to offer you the best price possible. Make sure that the host can offer you a full money-back guarantee. This way, you can assess the VPS performance and the quality of support during the money-back guarantee period.
In the event the VPS has been infected by shell scripts and you have no recent backup on the local computer, the host taking regular backups of the VPS will help you restore the VPS back to its working state in just a few minutes. If the host does not make backups, then you could end up spending many hours to bring your website back up and may lose valuable data.
