What is a Virtual Private Server?
A virtual private server (VPS) is a virtual machine that runs an independent copy of an operating system (OS), and customers can allocate all the available resources without most of the restrictions of a typical shared hosting environment.
For almost any hosting purposes, they are functionally equivalent to a dedicated physical server but much more cost-efficient, highly scalable and provides a level of redundancy that most bare-metal (physical server) solutions are missing.
FastComet VPS servers are powered by fully-redundant, SSD Cloud hosting infrastructure, which makes them ideal for high-traffic websites and resource demanding applications.
Websites hosted on a Shared Hosting environment have access to a shared pool of server resources available to a single physical or virtual server. Because of the nature of this setup, certain limitations and restrictions apply to the amount of resources each user can allocate for a specified period.
Although the concept of sharing resources makes the Shared Hosting service very cost-efficient for the end user, some high-traffic and resource-demanding websites and applications may require more than the available fair-share resources or a more flexible setup and configuration that is not suitable for a shared environment.
For such projects, the Virtual Private Server provides an excellent alternative by being much more affordable than a fully dedicated server and far more powerful performance-wise than a typical shared hosting service.
Additionally, customers may have superuser-level access to the operating system instance, create unlimited hosting accounts, install almost any software that runs on that OS and freely allocate all the available server resources without affecting or being affected by other customers’ websites.
What is the difference between VPS and Dedicated CPU Server?
Despite being fully independent, Virtual Private Servers share the underlying physical hardware with other VPSes, which means that they still “compete” for the CPU and memory of the hosting hardware infrastructure. This setup architecture gives a Virtual Server guaranteed amount of resources to utilize but does not provide exclusive access to the hardware hosting infrastructure.
The Dedicated CPU Servers, on the other hand, have fully dedicated CPU cores and memory that are 100% available and isolated from any other servers. Despite being a bit more expensive, this exclusive access to the hardware infrastructure makes the Dedicated CPU Servers suitable for very resource-intensive and high-traffic websites and applications without compromising any of the VPS advantages.
What is cPanel/WHM?
cPanel/WHM is a server configuration panel used for configuring a web server. It gives you a simplified interface, making it much easier to manage multiple websites, as well as services that are associated with the server — all that without the need for technical knowledge. Also, cPanel can automate administration processes to eliminate the need for constant technical maintenance.
Using the cPanel you can create email accounts, databases, install applications such as WordPress and Magento, configure your domains and more than 100 other system task in just a few clicks via the user-friendly web interface without any technical skills or system administration work. This makes it the ideal solution for people with no technical background as well as experienced users that want to automate and simplify their day to day operations.
I don’t have any Linux/Unix experience, is this the right service for me?
Although having some Linux/Unix experience can be useful, you don’t need to have any technical knowledge to take full advantage of your server. All FastCloud services come with web-based cPanel/WHM control panel via which you can manage all your websites without any system administration skills.
In case you need any technical assistance, you can always contact our 24/7 technical support team as a part of the Fully Managed service included with every plan.
What is the difference between managed and unmanaged service?
Usually, an unmanaged service means that you are provided with access to a specific hosting environment (whether a dedicated or a virtual server) with minimal configuration and setup. Having such service provided as-it-is means that you will need to install, configure, and maintain all software and technical aspects (including monitoring and security updates) by yourself. Furthermore, the unmanaged service usually includes no technical support and control panel or such are provided as a paid service. In general, unmanaged services are recommended for very experienced users with lots of technical knowledge who prefer to manage all the aspects of their infrastructure on their own.
On the other hand, with the FastComet Fully Managed service you will receive fully setup and optimized server with a powerful web-based control panel. Additionally, our 24/7 Technical Support will take care of your server security, optimization and help you with any technical issues you may face completely free of charge. You can check the full list of Technical Support Services for more information on our Fully Managed Service.
Can I host multiple websites on my VPS?
Yes, every Virtual Private Server provides full access to cPanel/WHM control panel via which you can create an unlimited number of independent hosting accounts with their own domain(s) and website(s).
Each hosting account will have an independent cPanel control panel, which makes the VPS hosting solution ideal for resellers, agencies, or people looking for hosting multiple independent projects on a single solution.
Which is the right hosting plan for me?
You can always upgrade or downgrade your VPS Server. In case you are not sure which is the right plan for you, we would recommend starting small and scale up from there as you can upgrade or downgrade any time. However, if you already have an active site for transfer, we recommend considering a server with at least 4 GB RAM for the most optimal experience. We will be happy to help you in case you need assistance with making the right choice for your custom needs. Get in touch via our LiveChat and we will help you make a proper decision. Our team works 24/7 and they are always ready to provide guidance.
Do you offer a trial or money back period?
Yes, we offer a 7-day money-back guarantee for all VPS Servers. In case you are not happy with the service during the first full week, you are able to cancel and we will give you a full refund of the hosting fee, excluding any setup or processing fee paid during the signup process.
