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.

Jim N.

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.

David K.

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.

What is VPS hosting?

A VPS or Virtual Private Server is a virtual operating system (or instance) that resides inside a parent server and shares resources with other virtual servers. The parent server divides up resources between all of the virtual servers via software called a hypervisor. The hypervisor creates and runs the VPS instances.

A Cloud VPS instance is just like a regular server and is managed through an easy to use control panel. Since a Cloud VPS duplicates many of the properties of a physical server, it also provides similar functionality and processes.

In a Cloud VPS setting, you’ll have full control to resize your server up to accommodate spikes in traffic or, scale it down for post-seasonal businesses. The ability to upgrade or downgrade allows you to pay for only the resources you use on the VPS.

Why choose a VPS?

A VPS gives you a portion of a dedicated server where you have full control of all the resources. A Liquid Web VPS not only provides peace of mind for small to medium businesses, but they also offer a robust combination of ancillary benefits:

  • Quick Resizing for Changes in Traffic Flow
  • Only Pay for What You Use
  • Host Unlimited Sites (based on the resources available)
  • Very Cost-effective
  • Contract Free Hosting
  • Multiple OS Choices Available
  • Daily Backups (via your Manage Interface)
  • SSH and Full Root Access
  • Highly Stable and Secure

Are all VPS hosting plans managed?

Our VPS hosting plans have multiple managed and unmanaged management levels to suit every business need. Choose from these options:

  • Fully managed VPS – Our primary recommendation, fully managed VPS provides all of the support and assistance you need as a new server owner.
  • Core managed – If you’re confident in your skills to run your own server and just a little support at times, core managed may be right for you.
  • Unmanaged – This option may work better for larger firms that have a dedicated IT staff.

We also include multiple management panels to assist you in managing your virtual private server:

  • cPanel
  • Plesk
  • InterWorx

Other management panels like Directadmin, Webmin, and CentOS Web Panels are also supported on most all of our servers.

Which VPS should I choose?

You don’t have to hire an expert to find a VPS 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. Also, any current traffic logs can help narrow down your choice even further!

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!

What operating systems can I get on a VPS? Can I install my own OS?

On our VPS platform we currently offer the following 64-bit operating systems:

  • CentOS 7
  • Ubuntu – 16.04, 18.04
  • Debian 8, 9 and 10
  • Fedora 31
  • CloudLinux
  • Windows Server – 2012 and 2016

Unfortunately, the VPS hosting platform does not allow installation of custom operating systems. If the noted operating systems are not the right fit for you, you may want to consider a Dedicated Server. Our Dedicated Servers allow for the installation of multiple, custom operating systems. Additionally, they provide the ability to fully-customize your hosting environment!

How do I move my site?

You don’t need to move your site, we do it for you! 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 VPS hosting?

Moving a website requires skilled experts, a proven process, sharp attention to detail, and dedicated amount of designated time. Our 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.

How long will it take to set up managed VPS hosting?

Our proprietary cloud provisioning system is able to deploy new servers very rapidly after your order has been verified. The actual setup time for a VPS can vary depending on which operating system you choose. If you are using a Linux based system, 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.

Can I upgrade my VPS hosting?

Absolutely! If your business goes through seasons or if you’re about to debut a new product line, our Cloud VPS can be upgraded or adjusted to accommodate your traffic.

Being able to scale not only means that you’ll have the power to meet all of your customers’ requests, but you will also be able to scale down so you won’t be paying for resources you don’t use or need!

Our “Quick and Full Resizes” options enable you to account for sudden bursts of traffic or long-term growth.

What is the difference between a VPS and dedicated server?

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. Because a VPS shares finite resources with other Virtual instances on the parent, overuse of can lead to less than optimal performance for any resource-intensive applications, which is why dedicated servers often outperform virtual private servers.

Cloud VPS’s and dedicated servers share several overlapping qualities, but most importantly, the dedicated servers provide greater security, extra customization options, and higher availability and uptime. With more granular controls, you are free to customize hardware components like CPU, disk space and RAM as well as the use of a unique operating system. these allow dedicated servers increased performance for high traffic sites. When uptime and performance are critical to your business, dedicated servers are unrivaled in performance and value.

How many websites can I host on a VPS?

The quick answer is that you are only limited by the amount of resources you have available on managed VPS hosting! The beauty of having a virtual environment that can increase/decrease as needed is, you can upgrade or downgrade your VPS at any time based on your needs. Consequently, your server has limitless abilities to host as many websites as you would like.
