Unmanaged VPS (also known as “Self-Managed VPS”) tends to require an advanced degree of technical know-how and basic understanding of Linux and the command line. Unmanaged VPS hosting plans allows you to configure and update VPS hosting to your exact preference.
But, if you prefer to have an expert manage your hosting and the tech stuff (freeing up more time for you to focus on your business), then Fully-Managed VPS Hosting might be the right choice to fulfill your hosting needs.
Yes! We offer Windows VPS hosting with resources staring at 2 GB RAM up to 32 GB RAM. Plus, you may add Plesk Obsidian Web Host Edition (for WordPress and website administration) to create and manage your sites.
VPS includes one free dedicated IP address. In the past, multiple IP addresses were needed for things like SSL and SEO. However, now with emerging technology, 1 dedicated IP works for:
Multiple SSL certificates.
Your server supports Server Name Indication (SNI), which means you no longer need a dedicated IP address for each SSL certificate on the server.
Search engine optimization (SEO).
As long as each site has its own directory, a single IP address does not negatively impact SEO on the websites hosted on your server.
Your customers can preview their websites using the same IP address as long as you’ve correctly configured cPanel or Plesk.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS or PCI for short) designates security standards to protect cardholders’ credit card data. That means, entities that store, process or transmit credit card information are expected to be compliant to the standards in the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards.
Our hosting services are a great place to setup your online presence and product catalog. You can then work with a third-party provider to process payments on your behalf to keep credit cards off your server. Whichever path you choose, make sure to be informed of additional requirements to keep your business PCI compliant.
We recommend you work with your payment provider (e.g., PayPal Checkout, Square Online Checkout and Stripe Checkout) to understand any additional requirements for which you are responsible. If you’re using one of our PCI-certified products, we have a simplified checklist for you here.
