When should I move to a Virtual Server?
If you’re outgrowing your web hosting or simply want more control, a managed or fully managed VPS (Virtual Private Server) is the next logical choice for your hosting needs. It gives you more freedom with root access to Apache and PHP, plus you can install an SSL certificate, as well as any type of software – all without the responsibility of a physical dedicated server.
On a shared server, you rely on the performance of the platform provided. By choosing a VPS, you get to select a configuration best suited for your applications, requirements and growth.
What is a VPS used for?
A VPS allows you to host sites (storefront, e-commerce, content, media) and software applications (primarily web: portal, extranet, collaborative solutions, wiki, CRM) with ease.
Unlike shared hosting, it allows multiple applications to be isolated from one another within the same container. While this VPS container shares physical resources (infrastructure) with other containers, its resources are dedicated to you.
How do I upgrade my VPS?
You can upgrade your VPS at any time, directly from your control panel. Your entire system (OS, software, settings) is saved; you don’t need to make any changes. Once you select a plan, upgrading happens automatically within minutes.
Who can use a VPS?
Anybody with some technical skills; this is especially true for managed VPS. Required admin skills include access, file transfer, and configuration. We continue to develop more tools and features that will make it even easier to manage your server environment.
How do I migrate my web hosting content to a VPS?
If you’re a current 3rd Coast Domains cPanel shared hosting customer, you can select one-click migration to VPS to import your sites, then simply re-direct DNS (Managed or Fully-Managed plans only). We also provide a paid migration service. Otherwise, it’s up to you to migrate your data and applications onto the VPS and reconfigure the DNS.
What is Self-Managed?
You don’t need anyone’s help — you’ve got this covered. When standing up new environments, you’d rather control your updates, if you make any at all. Our Self-Managed plans give you the freedom to flex your tech skills.
What is Managed?
You just need simple backups and patching, updates you don’t have to think about and the power of cPanel. We include it all at no additional cost, giving you the tools to handle everything else.
What is Fully Managed?
You don’t have the time to be a SysAdmin. Our dedicated Advanced Hosting Support team can do that job for you, so you can focus on your clients.
