VPS hosting is an excellent choice for websites that receive a high volume of traffic or are very large. Think media-intensive sites like photography and videography blogs or service websites. Even large e-commerce sites that get a ton of traffic, or sites that get unexpected surges of traffic (hello, viral blog posts), can benefit.
Before jumping into the plans below, we’ll take a brief detour to explain what VPS hosting is. VPS stands for Virtual Private Server (if that gives you any hints). With this style of hosting, you have a physical server that’s broken up into multiple virtual servers, which operate like individual dedicated servers.
Using VPS hosting gives you much-improved server performance, loading speeds, and support for higher levels of traffic than a traditional shared hosting plan.
InMotion Hosting offers two different options for VPS hosting: managed and cloud.
With managed VPS hosting, the InMotion Hosting team will be handling all the technical elements required to run a server. So they’ll be taking care of tasks like patching for security vulnerabilities, updating server and control panel software, troubleshooting, and more. All you have to do is run your site.
This is a great setup for agencies who manage their own site and the websites of their clients—or individuals who have a portfolio of websites they’re running themselves.
The other option is cloud VPS hosting. These plans are best suited for engineering, IT, and technical teams who want to deploy web applications quickly. With support for multiple programming languages and full root access, these hosting service plans are built for deploying and maintaining apps and websites.
As each plan scales up, whether a managed or cloud plan, server storage, RAM, and bandwidth increase. So you’ll get support for more substantial and higher traffic applications and websites
