What is a Virtual Private Server (VPS)?
A is a server divided into fully separate hosting environments. When you have VPS hosting, one of those environments is completely dedicated to you. That means you don't have to share resources (such as RAM or CPU) with other customers and you're less likely to be impacted by their behavior.
What about VPS vs. Dedicated?
Another great question. A dedicated server is a server that's literally dedicated to you and no one else, which means the world (or in this case, server) is your oyster.
How do I get started with VPS hosting?
To get started with a vps if your using it to host games but are new to vps hosting we recomend using a windows vps. If you are more advanced we recomend using a linux distribution for your vps. To get a vps simply go to our store click purchase and it will automatically setup for you.
Wait… if we're talking about a VPS, what is a VPN then?
Yup, it can be a little confusing, but a VPS is a virtual private server mainly used for games, webhosting, etc while a virtual private network (VPN) is a technology that allows you to remain completely anonymous when using the web.
When should I use VPS hosting over Shared?
In short, a virtual private server is ideal for users looking for more control over their hosting environment. A VPS gives you more flexibility and control to bump up things like RAM and disk space without paying for more than you need.
I already have hosting, but want to switch to VPS. Any tips?
If you’re switching from Shared, Reseller, or Dedicated hosting to a virtual private server, the process is pretty simple. You’ll just have to transfer your files, change the DNS, and cancel your old plan.
