How to Get the Most Out of Your VPS Hosting

Our popular VPS hosting accounts are a great option for users of all kinds. You get the freedom of a dedicated server for a fraction of the price.

So we wanted to go through some of the great things you can do with a VPS hosting account that you may or may not have considered yet.

Host Your Own Optimized WordPress Site

We believe you can place your VPS at the center of your marketing and production efforts.

To this end, having an optimized WordPress website as your command center is not only possible but recommended.

And you have plenty of options for optimized WordPress hosting. When selecting a VPS account at checkout, you can select to have it optimized for WordPress with one click.

If you already have a VPS and want to optimize for WordPress, you can follow our guide on installing various addons to create a WordPress stack. Or, you could have our Managed Hosting experts do it for you.

BuddyPress (Your Own Social Media Services)

Self-hosting WordPress means you can easily install BuddyPress to add social media features to your VPS account.

Why send your customers away from your website to contribute their time and attention to Facebook groups?

Keep your visitors on your site longer by offering them your own social media network.

Building an Online Game

Believe it or not, some of our customers use their hosting account to manage an online game.

It’s not so far out of the realm of possibility as you might think. If you have some coding experience, you can use our VPS plans to host your own game too.

The VPS hosting account is managed within in its own container. This means you can install any third-party addons you need to make a great game.

Do E-commerce The Right Way

If you want to go the e-commerce route, you need a VPS. The VPS environment provides you the freedom to make necessary security modifications.

With the right security features enabled, you could get your server compliant with the latest customer protection standards.

There are third-party shopping cart apps you could use for selling your products, but you may be paying more for advanced features you could more easily integrate into your VPS.

Final Thoughts

We think investing in a VPS hosting account gives you the freedom and security necessary to ensure a long term return on your investment.

And with a fixed pricing model, you always know exactly what your bottom line will look like. We don’t spring any hidden costs on you or charge for addons you may not need.
