Web Hosting Information’s Guide to VPS Hosting

If you’re looking for a larger server, but you can’t quite swing a dedicated hosting plan, a virtual private server is usually the next logical step. There are thousands of VPS hosting companies out there, so we’ve rounded up some of the highest ranked ones in our directory to make your selection easier. You’ll find full reviews for each host linked in their descriptions below.

RackSlash – The RV V-Series 600 plan from RackSlash is priced at $45.50 per month and offers 10 gigs of disk space and 400 gigs of monthly data transfer. This company only permits 15 VPS’s per individual server, which is a nice feature and should make a difference when it comes to system resources. CPanel, WHM and Fantastico are all provided, free of charge.

GotWebHost – The Virtual 5C plan features 5 IP addresses, 5 Class C’s, and 5 different nameservers. The disk space and bandwidth allotments are a little low, at 2 gigs and 20 gigs respectively, especially for the monthly price of $79. You can choose between three different control panels and Fantastico is provided. You’ll even get 1 free hour of SEO advice when you sign up for a new account.

IX Web Hosting – For the budget price of $9.95 per month, IX Web Hosting’s Business Plan offers 20 gigs of data storage and 300 gigs of monthly data transfer. 5000 email and FTP accounts are offered, as well as 50 MySQL and MSSQL databases. The one-hour technical support guarantee is one of the best features of this plan, even though there are some downsides.

KnownHost – This is a newer hosting company and their VPS L Plan is competitively priced at $35 per month. 15 gigs of disk space and 300 gigs of monthly data transfer are offered as well as unlimited email addresses, MySQL databases and a bunch of other features. Virtuozzo VPS technology and the Virtuozzo control panel are offered with all of their VPS plans.

Rose Hosting – Although this VPS plan is one of the more expensive VPS plans in our directory at $89 per month, it offers some advanced features that are hard to find elsewhere. 15 gigs of storage and 200 gigs of data transfer are offered, and you’ll have 768 megs of guaranteed RAM, burstable up to 1 gig. You can choose your own OS and there are two different control panels from which to choose.

HostEasier – For $74.95 a month, you’ll get 30 gigs of disk space, 500 gigs of monthly bandwidth, 1 gig of guarantee RAM and unlimited email accounts, FTP accounts and MySQL databases. Three IP addresses are provided and you will be able to personalize your nameservers. The Virtuzzo Power Panel is included for easy administration

WebsiteHostingSource – http://www.webhostinginformation.net/website-hosting-source/ This plan is a little cheaper at $39.95 per month but it offers only 3 gigs of disk space and 120 gigs of monthly data transfer. On the plus side, a DDOS suite is provided free of charge as well as a firewall. The MivaEmpress shopping cart is an available add-on and there are a lot of other nice features that make up for the lack of disk space.

InMotionHosting – At $99.95, this is one of our most expensive VPS plans reviewed in our directory. It offers 15 gigs of disk space, 300 gigs of monthly data transfer, 256 megs of RAM; burstable up to 512, and a huge collection of “value apps” are provided. Not many extras other than this collection come with this plan.
