I have always said something about Hivelocity. I am a guy who has a single little server as a hobby and I am continually treated like I have 10 racks of them.

VPS Hosting FAQ

A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a partitioned portion of a physical server, functioning as an independent virtual machine with dedicated resources. VPS hosting, provided by companies like Hivelocity, enables users to host websites and various software applications on these virtual servers. Offering more power and control than shared hosting, VPS allows for customization and flexibility.

VPS features its own Operating System (OS) and can be separately rebooted, ensuring isolation and non-interference between different servers. While Hivelocity manages the physical servers and guarantees speed, uptime, and stability, users are responsible for managing their individual servers, creating an ideal balance of power and support.

VPS hosting is used for a variety of online projects that require more power, control, and flexibility, such as robust websites, web apps, and online game servers. It provides dedicated resources like CPU power, RAM, and disk space, which aren’t shared with other users like in shared hosting, creating an optimal environment for your projects.

Users with a VPS typically have full root access allowing them to install any supported operating systems and configure their servers to their needs. Linux VPS, for example, offers extensive features and controls due to its open-source nature.

VPS hosting offers a balance of resources and cost, making it an ideal choice for those needing more resources than shared hosting can offer but without the higher price tag of a dedicated server.

No, Port 25 is blocked on our VPS Hosting servers. This security measure is adopted by the majority of hosting providers to prevent abuse. To send emails from your VPS, you can either use alternative ports such as 587 or 465, employ a third-party email service, or consider upgrading to one of our dedicated server solutions.

Selecting Hivelocity for VPS hosting offers numerous advantages. Hivelocity’s global data centers ensure your data is closer to your audience, reducing latency and enhancing user experience—an essential aspect of SEO optimization.

Our service is ideal for varied users—from developers and bloggers to e-commerce owners—offering affordable, secure, and scalable VPS plans.

Performance-wise, our powerful CPUs provide superior execution, making each vCPU Core more potent than those from many competitors.

Plus, our top-rated support team is available 24/7/365, providing responses from experienced engineers in under 15 minutes, ensuring your hosting needs are always taken care of.

Shared hosting is ideal for small projects, where users share server resources and space, limiting customization and potentially impacting performance due to other users’ activities. On the other hand, VPS hosting, like Hivelocity’s offerings, reserves dedicated resources on a physical server for each user, offering more power and customization. This makes VPS hosting more scalable and powerful than shared hosting, albeit at a higher cost. In shared hosting, you share the server directly, whereas in VPS, you have more control over the virtual space, creating a balance between shared and dedicated server hosting.

VPS hosting provides a balance between shared hosting and dedicated server hosting. Unlike shared hosting, you have greater control over your virtual space in a VPS, yet you still share resources with other users. This makes VPS hosting more powerful than shared hosting but less expensive than a dedicated server. VPS is ideal for moderately-sized web projects, with the added advantage of not having to worry about hardware management.

On the other hand, a dedicated server gives you exclusive access to all the resources, making it the most powerful and flexible option, though at a higher cost. If you want to manage the hardware yourself, build complex architectures, create a private network, or deploy complex non-web solutions, a dedicated server is recommended. Generally, users with a growing volume of web activity upgrade to dedicated servers or Public Cloud solutions for more elaborate, adaptable infrastructures that can accommodate high growth levels.

Hivelocity VPS servers are self-managed.

In self-managed hosting, the provider grants users full control over the configuration and management of their virtual server. This means users are responsible for all technical and administrative tasks, including dealing with unexpected server failures. Therefore, users should have sufficient technical skills to effectively utilize self-managed hosting.

Yes.  We offer both Linux VPS hosting and Windows VPS hosting.  When you configure your Virtual Private Server for deployment you can pick from a variety of Linux and Windows Operating Systems distributions.

Yes, you can upgrade your hosting plan at any time. Hivelocity’s VPS plans are designed to scale along with your needs. Whether it’s more disk space, increased CPU power, or bandwidth, you have the flexibility to start small and expand as your business or project grows.

To upgrade, you can navigate to your account dashboard and select the “Upgrade” option. The process is swift and doesn’t cause any downtime.

Absolutely, you can create a private network (VLAN) between your VPS and dedicated servers at Hivelocity. This unique feature allows you to include multiple VPS and dedicated servers in the same private network.

This setup is particularly useful when you have known workloads that are more cost-effective on dedicated servers, but also require small side processes or the capacity to handle bursts, which can be addressed with VPS.

Hivelocity is one of the few global providers that offer this capability, and certainly, we are the most cost-effective option for it.
