Frequently Asked Questions About Linux VPS Hosting

VPS Stands for Virtual Private Server. It is a hosting where multiple websites use isolated space on the same host. It is a form of multi-tenant cloud hosting where virtualized server resources are made available to the user.

A Linux VPS specifically refers to one where the virtualized environment runs on the Linux operating system. This type of hosting gives you more control and flexibility than shared hosting, where you share resources with other users on the same server.

With shared hosting, your website shares one server with other websites like an apartment building. It offers you less management flexibility, performance, bandwidth & more.

On the other hand, In VPS hosting, your website is on a virtual server. You still share the physical server with other websites, but resources are partitioned and dedicated to each user. So, you don’t need to worry about the bandwidth & storage in VPS hosting.

When you scroll through various web hostings for your business, VPS is a great and affordable option, whereas a dedicated hosting solution is quite expensive compared to VPS web hosting. Additionally, VPS hosting offers its subscribers decent stability, faster access, and website loading speeds compared to shared hosting.

There isn’t a single ‘best’ Linux distro for a VPS. The best choice depends on your specific needs and experience level. 

Here are some popular options to help you decide:

  • Ubuntu Server
  • Debian
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux
  • CentOS Stream
  • AlmaLinux

Creating a VPS on Linux involves setting up a VPS through a hosting provider and then configuring it using SSH. 

Here's a simplified breakdown:

  1. Choose a VPS Provider and Plan.
  2. Setting Up Your VPS which involves picking a Linux distribution (OS) like Ubuntu or CentOS.
  3. Accessing Your VPS with SSH.
  4. Securing and Configuring Your VPS.

Essential steps include updating the system, creating a new non-root user, setting up SSH key authentication for security & installing a firewall.

VPS Hosting is specially developed for tech-savvy users. You should consider VPS Servers in the following cases:

  • When it exceeds the resource limits and traffic fluctuations.
  • When you are required to install custom modules or applications.
  • When you are handling sensitive data on your website.
  • When you need root access.

One of the significant reasons for upgrading is if you are worried about your server's privacy and are frequently targeted by cyber attacks.

For the kind of websites that need additional power, flexibility, and control, hosting them on a VPS server will boost their performance. The best examples are resource- and power-intensive websites like gaming sites and multisite based on WordPress.  

When you buy a VPS hosting service for your website, your hosting provider will offer you dedicated CPU, Memory (RAM), and disk space so that your website’s performance is not hampered due to other websites. VPS hosting gives you full root access. You may use this access to install the operating system and configure the server setting.

Managed VPS hosting is a service where the hosting provider not only provides you with a virtual private server but also takes care of managing server administration, software updates, security, backups, and other technicalities related to panels & servers. 

It lets the users comfortably focus on their core business without worrying about server management tasks.

Self-managed VPS hosting is a hosting arrangement where the user is responsible for the setup, configuration, maintenance, and security of the VPS server. It puts more control and responsibility in the hands of the user.

Managed VPS and unmanaged VPS are two distinct types of hosting services:

The hosting service provider in Managed VPS provides comprehensive support for your VPS server. 

It includes handling server setup, configuration, software installations, security updates, monitoring, and troubleshooting so that you can focus on your business while leaving the technical troubles to the hosting experts. This is a great option if you don't have technical knowledge or a team for server management.

On the other hand, self-managed VPS gives you the capacity to control the server. With unmanaged VPS, you are responsible for setting up, configuring, securing, deploying updates, and maintaining the server. The hosting provider's responsibility is typically limited to properly functioning the hardware and network. 

Self-managed VPS is best for users with advanced technical skills or a team of experts.

It is essential to identify the technical expertise you or your team have. If you enjoy managing server tasks and are sure of the outcomes, then self-managed VPS hosting is the best option for your company. Additionally, unmanaged hosting is economical.

On the other hand, if you are not a technical expert and don’t wish to invest your time and efforts in managing server-related tasks, it is always advisable to allow your hosting provider to help you manage your server. As your hosting provider has to invest more effort, employees, and time in managing your server, the managed hosting plans come at an additional cost. 

VPS Hosting is affordable when compared to Dedicated Hosting and when we compare it with Shared Hosting, VPS hosting is more secure in terms of privacy. In VPS, users can customize features according to their requirements, reducing the cost involved for the end-user and saving time and money.

VPS also includes your performance and makes your website more scalable. 

VPS server is a secure, consistent, and smaller-scale solution. It's more affordable than a dedicated server. It's more affordable and offers privacy, independence, and isolation. With VPS hosting, your files and databases are locked from other service users.

When you discuss Cloud servers, you refer to Dedicated Web Hosting, which is much more expensive than VPS web hosting. Secondly, you get dedicated resources, robust security, and superior performance with VPS hosting. 

VPS hosting offers full root access. Hence, your technical team can control and customize the server environment. Manage the OS and the applications installed and ensure your website's security, stability, and scalability at the most affordable price.

Suppose you compare the speed of a VPS Hosting server to a Shared Hosting server. The VPS server wins because each hosted website receives dedicated resources like RAM, processing power, and space virtually. As a result, your site performs well. 

Shared hosting costs less, but the resources are shared across all websites. Hence, the speed and performance aren’t guaranteed. But for a minor hike in the price, if you can get decent speed and performance, VPS hosting is a better choice. Dedicated Hosting might seem appealing, but it is too expensive.

So for a good business website with decent web traffic and appreciable security, VPS Hosting is the best choice.

VPN stands for Virtual Private Network, whereas VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. VPS is a web hosting service allowing users to have a dedicated space to host their website with other (multiple) websites. On the other hand, VPN provides an encrypted server and provides the user with a private environment by masking the server's IP address.

The technical team of your VPS service provider takes care of the regular operations and maintenance of servers. The users have root access to their memory and are given options to personalize their VPS, allowing them to operate on programs and software of their choice.

"Best Location" is a relative term. 

First, determine where your target audience is. If you target a specific country's local viewers, having your VPS server within that country is advisable. 

Secondly, you must also consider the internet speed and other resources that affect your server's speed, stability, and performance. If these factors favor your VPS server to excel, then your decision is appropriate.

Contrary to this, if you plan to target an international audience, you must avail of the VPS services from a vendor offering robust hardware, the best internet speed, and minimum downtime. Using Cloudflare CDN Service to cache your website at various locations helping your website load faster, is also a great decision. 

Because Windows is a commercial OS, the price for Windows VPS will be higher than the Linux VPS. While Windows VPS is more expensive than Linux, If your website is built in PHP, HTML & WordPress, Linux VPS hosting is the best option.

Windows also beat Linux in providing backend support. Windows are preferred by companies with significant IT infrastructure and budgets, while Linux is the choice of small and medium enterprises with less or no IT budget.

We provide full root access along with one dedicated IP address in all VPS plans.

Yes, you can install any software/application on your VPS server, depending on the server configuration.

A Linux VPS hosting empowers our customers to employ dedicated resources without paying the cost of dedicated resources. The use of virtualization software enables us to run multiple virtual private servers independent of each other on the same physical server. Thus, resulting in reduced costs. Linux virtual private server hosting refers to a VPS hosting that is based on the Linux operating system, which is also one of the most popular operating systems for the web.

VPS hosting is the most preferable solution if you want dedicated resources for your business at an affordable cost. This assures minimum interruption and eliminates the risk of interference or security from other businesses that you share the server with on your shared hosting plan. VPS offers flexibility, root access, stability and high-performance in terms of the website loading time.

VPS hosting is much like dedicated hosting except that you own only the part of a server along with many businesses sharing it, whereas with dedicated hosting you have a whole server addressing only to your requirements. In VPS hosting, a server is divided into many fragments just like apartments in the building.

VPS is an ideal solution for high-traffic websites that have outgrown their shared hosting plans whereas, if you have a large business that has outgrown VPS plans, dedicated hosting is the most ideal one.

VPS servers are unmanageable. If the Hosting panel is available with your server and your request can be fulfilled via panel, ie., we do not have to login remotely to your server, we can support you that for free. But if we need to login to your VPS server to perform any action, that will be a chargeable support.

You can’t directly run a Linux VPS on your Windows machine like a program. You have to access and manage your Linux VPS from your Windows PC with these common ways:

SSH with PuTTY: This is the most popular method. SSH is a secure protocol for remote logins. You have to use a free tool like PuTTY to connect to your VPS through SSH with the respective SSH port or custom-defined ports with valid credentials provided by your VPS provider. 

VNC Viewer (If desktop installed): You can use a VNC viewer on Windows to connect to the graphical desktop remotely, similar to how Remote Desktop works in Windows.

In short, you can't run the Linux VPS directly on Windows; you can easily connect to it and manage it from your Windows machine using freely available tools.
