Frequently Asked Questions

What is VPS Hosting and what is it used for?
Short for a Virtual Private Server, a VPS refers to the partitioning of a physical server into multiple ones. Since each VPS features its own Operating System (OS), it receives a specific share of resources from one physical server so they are isolated, unable to interfere, and can be separately rebooted. Read more here about VPS services.
How do I set up VPS Hosting?
Choosing a VPS host usually implies that you already have some basic server management knowledge and skills. With Namecheap, however, you can rely on us to set up everything for you. If you prefer to do things on your own, please refer to our Knowledgebase article, specifically the VPS services section. If you need fast assistance, please get in touch via our 24/7 Live Chat.
What are the VPS Hosting plan benefits?
VPS Hosting is perfect if you need more resources (compared to Shared Hosting) but prefer not to spend as much (compared to Dedicated Server Hosting). When deciding what VPS Hosting plan is right for you, the following three factors should be considered: 1) the amount of resources required to host your website, which includes CPU, RAM, and bandwidth; 2) your OS choice (as some applications may require a specific OS) and 3) your choice of Server Management (User-Responsible, Basic or Complete). “User-Responsible” means you handle all technical and administrative tasks yourself, “Basic” means you receive a proactive response if unexpected server failure occurs and “Complete” means all technical and administrative tasks related to your VPS are handled for you. You can also think of it as fully-managed VPS Hosting.
Why should I choose VPS Hosting from Namecheap?
Ideal for web developers, bloggers, resellers, and e-commerce owners, we offer VPS plans with top security, flexibility if and when your business scales in size, independence from neighbors, and full control over your hosting environment. The best part? It’s the cheapest VPS around. Read more about Namecheap as a VPS host →
What’s the difference between VPS Hosting, Shared Hosting, and Dedicated Server Hosting?
VPS Hosting answers any issue of scalability and limited resources. A VPS is more powerful than Shared Hosting, where you still technically “share” the server with others but you have more control over how you use the virtual space. A VPS server price is more expensive than Shared Hosting. A VPS host is similar to a Dedicated Server but the resources are allocated between individual websites. Although it’s the most expensive option, Dedicated Server Hosting gives you sole access to all the resources available. Learn more about the differences →
What is the difference between a VPS and a VDS?
To put it plainly, a virtual private server (VPS) is a server that’s configured to host multiple servers isolated from one another and using different operating systems (OS) but using the same hardware whereas a virtual dedicated server (VDS) can have their resources like CPU or memory levels reserved solely for their needs.
Disclaimers
