Learn About Virtual Private Servers

What Does VPS Mean?

VPS stands for Virtual Private Server and acts like a dedicated server. You'll get root shell access and an equal share of server resources.

How Do VPS Accounts Work?

With VPS hosting, the server you are hosted on is shared with up to 16 (sometimes more) webmasters. With the use of a powerful software, hosts like InMotion Hosting have found a way to partition the server's system, so each part could function like a dedicated server.

VPS hosting consists of a server divided into multiple isolated accounts, and each VPS account has its own independent operating system with it's own web server and mail server resources, netc. Just like a dedicated server, you can have access to all configuration files within your account which means a greater ability for you to install and run custom software should you choose to.

Is a VPS Right for Me?

More experienced webmasters may wish to manage the technical aspects of their VPS accounts, but this can be a time-consuming and complicated task. It's little wonder many people prefer to have their VPS hosting accounts fully managed by the hosting provider. Usually you'll pay a few dollars per month extra for this, but this can free up your valuable time and energy to concentrate on content and website promotion.

How Much do VPS Plans Cost Typically?

You can expect to pay $40-$60 per month for an entry-level, fully managed VPS hosting account and this will allow you to run multiple sites from one account just like a reseller account. You'll be provided with an operating system, control panel, your own allocation of RAM memory, plus large space and bandwidth resources.

Other VPS Information:

A minimum of 256MB guaranteed ram is suggested in order to run your control panels and database driven sites smoothly. For higher traffic sites consider 384MB or 512MB of guaranteed ram or more.
