What is a VPS?

A VPS or virtual private server is one of the many options available when looking to host a website on the web. However, how do you know a VPS server is for you? A VPS server is unique in that it is both a dedicated server with a shared hosting environment. In short, It allows you to rent a smaller portion of a server, but also maintain the privacy and customization features that you would get from owning your own. As a result, businesses who require less server space can receive many of the same advantages as full servers would, and at a fraction of the price. This results in more flexibility and efficiency overall for all our customers.

Who Does This Really Benefit?

Although there are exceptions, many startups or companies with small websites may find it valuable to choose a VPS plan due to their affordability and efficiency. Along with privacy and customization, customers can also expect full control of their VPS server even in a shared hosting environment, in addition to the dedicated amounts of RAM available to you.

Where Can I Start?

Canadian Web Hosting’s VPS plans start from $5 per month and include 512MB of memory, 1 core, 20GB of storage, 1 IP address, and 1TB of bandwidth. It is the perfect plan for those who are just beginning their websites and provides customers with a cheap and accessible way to host their own server.
