WordPress VPS hosting is all the rage at the moment because of the affordable prices, higher speeds, control and flexibility. For those of you that don’t know, VPS stands for Virtual Private Server which comes at a cost that’s only 1/3 to 1/4 of renting a dedicated server.
But why would you need VPS hosting for your WordPress blog?
If you’re like me and like adding/inserting and uploading, images, screen shots and other slow loading, high CPU/Bandwidth guzzling attachments, then you have to use it.
There’s no amount of wordpress caching plugins that will help you once you get to a certain point. For me that point is about 100 posts plus 30 odd pages of WordPress related content filled with several hundred images. Not a lot really!
VPS Hosting for wordpress combined with other website optimization site speed solutions gives you the ultimate experience for your site visitors.

One of the things i really like about them is they will transfer your wordpress site to your new vps server free of charge and without any hassles. I’ve tried several of the big hosting providers and never received the same qaulity of both service and hosting.
Bluehost throttled my account so much i was getting 500 server errors everyday even though they advertise unlimited everything its really NOT unlimited. That’s the reason i moved to Hostgator and recommend them to all my clients as well.

WordPress VPS Hosting in The Cloud
One of the greatest benefits of VPS hosting for WordPress is that you can choose vps hosting that’s cloud based. Why would you need VPS cloud Servers?
- Unlike standard VPS hosting for WordPress, if any hardware fails, that server will fall out of the cloud and your site will come back online within seconds on new hardware. Automatically.
- Standard VPS only offers a certain amount of resources so you can still suffer downtime. Not VPS Cloud hosting. Cloud VPS is able to dynamically assign RAM and CPU as your server needs it.
- Cloud VPS Hosting for WordPress offers choice of multiple locations to deploy your servers for maximum website optimization. Choose USA, Asia and/or Europe based on where your site visitors and customers live.
