FAQs

Unmanaged VPS (also known as “Self-Managed VPS”) tends to require an advanced degree of technical know-how and basic understanding of Linux and the command line. Unmanaged VPS hosting plans allows you to configure and update VPS hosting to your exact preference.


But, if you prefer to have an expert manage your hosting and the tech stuff (freeing up more time for you to focus on your business), then Fully-Managed VPS Hosting might be the right choice to fulfill your hosting needs.

ELITE VPS Hosting offers both Linux (CentOS or Ubuntu) and Windows Server.

Yes! We offer Windows VPS hosting with resources staring at 2 GB RAM up to 32 GB RAM. Plus, you may add Plesk Obsidian Web Host Edition (for WordPress and website administration) to create and manage your sites.

ELITE VPS includes one free dedicated IP address. In the past, multiple IP addresses were needed for things like SSL and SEO. However, now with emerging technology, 1 dedicated IP works for:

  • Multiple SSL certificates.
    Your server supports Server Name Indication (SNI), which means you no longer need a dedicated IP address for each SSL certificate on the server.
  • Search engine optimization (SEO).
    As long as each site has its own directory, a single IP address does not negatively impact SEO on the websites hosted on your server.
  • Site previews.
    Your customers can preview their websites using the same IP address as long as you've correctly configured cPanel or Plesk.

ELITE servers are located around the globe. Choose your server location during setup in North America, Europe or Asia-Pacific.

Our hosting services are a great place to setup your online presence and product catalog. You can then work with a third-party provider to process payments on your behalf to keep credit cards off your server. Whichever path you choose, make sure to be informed of additional requirements to keep your business PCI compliant.

We recommend you work with your payment provider (e.g., PayPal Checkout, Square Online Checkout and Stripe Checkout) to understand any additional requirements for which you are responsible.

Yes, VPS hosting is best suited for web developers and system administrators that have the technical knowledge to manage a server. VPS offers more power and flexibility than standard shared hosting, and with it comes more server management complexity. But for those looking for the power of VPS — and the simplicity of a standard cPanel experience to manage their sites — we recommend ELITE Business Hosting.

If you’re looking for credibility and stability in your VPS hosting provider, know that we’re the world’s #1 hosting provider. That means millions of people trust their sites and applications to ELITE. We offer high-performance KVM VPS hosting with flexible configurations for every budget, including automated weekly backups with scheduling and on-demand, monitoring, alert tools and expert support.

 

You also get to choose from Linux or Windows operating systems with optional control panels (cPanel/WHM or Plesk Obsidian Webhost Edition). And for those that don’t have the time or skill set to manage their server, we offer Fully Managed VPS hosting or one-time paid task-based services.

Yes. All VPS hosting includes automated weekly snapshots so you can schedule backup time – or create a backup on demand.

VPS hosting gives you high performance with an isolated environment where the CPU, RAM and storage is 100% dedicated and not shared with any other websites or apps. That, compared to shared hosting, results in higher performance and security along with more flexibility and control over the server.

 

VPS hosting also offers higher resources and bandwidth/traffic than shared hosting, which means faster load times and unlimited traffic. A VPS allows the admin more control over security hardening and is less vulnerable to hackers in comparison to shared hosting. With shared hosting, if a site gets hacked there’s a greater chance that other websites on the server will also be compromised. Conversely, due to virtual isolation, a hacked VPS on the same hardware, won’t affect surrounding VPS environments.

 

And with root access, there are no restrictions on the applications you install; you can access and edit the system files, settings and server logons.

Although the average time for us to provision your account will likely be mere minutes, it may take up to 24 hours or more. But, if you need your hosting right away, please call us and we'll do our best to speed things up.
