Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • Question-1 :  What is a Virtual Private Server (VPS)?

    VPS is an intermediate web hosting option between shared and dedicated hosting, wherein a physical server is partitioned into smaller virtual containers that act as an individual server. Just like a dedicated server, VPS can run its own OS, and it comes with dedicated RAM, disk space and CPU resource. Since each VPS runs its own copy of OS, the user can have root/administrator privileges to that OS instance and can install almost any software that can be run on the OS.

  • Question-2 :  Is VPS easy to use?

    Yes, absolutely. You can easily manage your VPS with the help of user-friendly control panels. For Linux VPS, there are plenty of paid and free control panel options are available, such as cPanel/WHM, DirectAdmin, Plesk, InterWorx, H-Sphere, CentOS Web Panel, ISPConfig, Ajenti, Kloxo, ZPanel, etc. The control panel allows customers to manage their websites, DNS records, FTP accounts, email accounts and databases through a single login and easy to use GUI.

  • Question-3 :  What are the benefits of using VPS?

    When your site outgrows your shared hosting environment, VPS Hosting gives you more RAM, storage, and CPU resources to accommodate high traffic website. Having said that your website can grow to receive more visitors without spending the much higher cost of a dedicated server.Apart from this, the VPS Hosting has numerous other benefits over traditional shared hosting. To list a few,1. Full administrative access 2. Highest reliability 3. Highest security 4. Flexibility 5. Scalability

  • Question-4 :  Is VPS secure hosting option?

    Yes, since each VPS is isolated and they have their own dedicated resources, VPS hosting is considered to be the safest hosting solution. When you are hosted under a shared environment, even with all the appropriate security measures, breaches in security can occur. When you upgrade to VPS hosting, the level of security increases significantly, as each VPS keeps all data, applications, and processes safe and secure in its own virtual environment.

  • Question-5 :  Are the Virtual Private Servers scalable?

    Yes, absolutely. In case you are outgrown your current VPS plan, you can easily upgrade VPS resources to meet your needs without affecting the data that reside on your VPS.

  • Question-6 :  What type of VPS are available?

    VPS Hosting can be mainly differentiated into 2 types, Managed and Unmanaged. Under managed VPS, the server updates, security, maintenance, and support etc. are handled by hosting provider. Again, the perks and services offered under managed option varies from host to host. Under unmanaged VPS option, you merely get a basic SSH/RDP connection to VPS server, control panel, and other pre-installed software.

  • Question-7 :  Do I get a dedicated IP address with the VPS hosting?

    Yes, VPS comes with a number of dedicated IP addresses based on the VPS plan you choose. You can use this IP address to run your own websites, emails, databases and FTP servers.
