A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is an independent, virtual partition on a physical server. Think of a server with different "containers" within it. When you sign up for HostPapa VPS hosting, you get one of these containers to manage as you wish—install applications or scripts, and arrange your web files the way you want. It's private, secure, and flexible.
While you will share some hardware resources with other VPS customers on your server, nothing your neighbours do will affect your container and vice versa. You get many of the benefits of your own dedicated server at a fraction of the cost. On a shared server, you rely on the performance of the platform provided. By choosing VPS, you get to select a configuration best suited for your applications, requirements, and growth.
VPS hosting is an affordable option when your business requirements outgrow the capacity of shared hosting. It's the next logical step: substantially more capacity and control for just a bit more money. Users on a shared web hosting server share the computing resources for the websites, email, and databases. There is no guarantee of CPU, RAM on shared web hosting. VPS hosting provides dedicated compute resources for your websites, files, email, databases, etc. keeping you in complete control. In addition, you get more control with root level access to perform configurations not possible in shared hosting.
A Virtual Private Server allows you to host sites (storefront, eCommerce, content, media) and software applications (primarily web: portal, extranet, collaborative solutions, wiki, CRM) with ease. Unlike shared hosting, VPS hosting makes it possible to isolate multiple applications from one another within the same container.
VPS offers a number of advantages over shared hosting. As a VPS user, you can:
Users are guaranteed the resources on their VPS server for their web hosting accounts. This means that your account will always be allocated the set amount of RAM, CPU, and disk space you've chosen regardless of what other users on the server are doing. This allows for greater stability and performance of your website, applications, and email. You also do not share the operating system with any other users, providing better security for your website files.
Two words: cost and maintenance. Running your own dedicated server is possible but comes at a higher cost and is self-managed. You will need to keep up with patches, hardware upgrades, server maintenance, and storage. You can also rent dedicated servers, but the price is substantially more than a VPS.
A VPS offers the perfect step between the constraints of a shared hosting plan and the commitment of a dedicated server. You'll have a lot more flexibility, capacity, and control at an affordable price.
Managed VPS hosting means that we will handle just about anything to do with your server: nuts, bolts, wires, drives, connectivity, racking, storage, security, and so on. All you have to manage is your own container, which you can do using the provided control panel software or through root access. You can install, manage, and operate software / scripts of your choice. Customers who acquire either managed or fully managed service for VPS hosting will receive cPanel/WHM licenses. Installation of non-cPanel supported applications will not be supported by our customer service.
Managed support services include, but are not limited to:

With HostPapa, you have a choice to either self-manage your VPS or acquire a managed or a fully managed service. HostPapa's Managed VPS service includes updating and patching core operating system, backing up content and data on the server, installing SSL, and more. Fully managed VPS is a white-glove service that includes a dedicated team of server admins, server setup, DNS setup, content migration, custom Firewall rules, and more. For more details about this and other managed VPS services, please go to this article.
Using VPS hosting is not more complicated than using a shared hosting service, but some prior experience in hosting will be an asset. Remember, a VPS lets you take control of your server space. It's a logical step if you require more computing resources or flexibility than being on a shared hosting environment.
