What is VPS hosting?

A VPS, or virtual private server, is a server that provides you with dedicated resources on a server with multiple users. It’s a safer and more secure answer to shared hosting without needing devoted server space. This makes it a more cost-effective solution than dedicated hosting.

By harnessing virtualization technology, Elite will install a virtual layer on top of the server‘s operating system. This layer splits the server into separate areas, allowing all users to install and use their own OS and software, simulating their own physical server.

A VPS is great for those looking for a powerful, yet cost-effective way to run their site. The server provides you with your own secluded container with your own scalable resources (ie. your website’s memory, CPU cores, memory) that are dedicated to you.

VPS Hosting FAQs:

A VPS, or virtual private server, is a server that provides you with dedicated resources on a server with multiple users. It’s a safer and more secure answer to shared hosting without needing dedicated server space. This makes it a more cost-effective solution than dedicated hosting.


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 fulfil your hosting needs.

VPS hosting is ideal for those who have some knowledge of servers and will make use of a bigger online space. Essentially, it’s perfect for those who need a large amount of power and control over their server, whilst maintaining a smaller budget.  

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

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

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. 

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. 

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. 

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. 

Since you’ll have full root access, you are free to customize your website by installing a wide variety of third party software, meaning you can turn your website into whatever you desire!
