VPS stands for Virtual Private Server meaning that the entire file system of the machine is dedicated to you. Unlike our basic and reseller web hosting packages, all of the disk space, RAM, virtual CPU cores, etc. will be dedicated for your use.
All of our VPS hosting packages are managed meaning we install, secure, and keep updated the core software. This includes the operating system, CentOS 7, the control panel, Web Host Manager with cPanel, and your database engine, MySQL or MariaDB. We also have a 24/7/365 monitoring team that is on standby to bring your server back online incase of a failure.
The host name of your VPS is completely customized to you. When you deploy the server you will be asked to assign the host name. Most customers use subdomains such as server1.companyname.com or alpha.companyname.com. Your name servers will often share the same domain as your host name meaning they would be ns1.companyname.com and ns2.companyname.com.
All of our VPS hosting packages come with a dedicated IP address for your private name servers. If you need more, you can purchase them. However, our anti-SPAM and abuse team will have to approve any request greater than 3 IPs. Please note SEO is not a valid reason for additional IPs.
You will begin to experience many errors across your VPS if you use up all the disk space. All of our VPS hosting packages allow you to instantly upgrade from inside our interface. If you’re on our largest solution, our techs will work with you on an additional solution to manage all of your files.
