HostGator VPS Hosting Plans and Review


Now a days every individual and company is making its website to share their knowledge and provide services online. Normally, people purchase go with free blogging services like Wordpress or blogger to create their blog and then transfer their blogs to paid hosting. You can read a comparsion chart of Blogger and wordpress to realize which blogging platform is better. Anyways, when your blog florish and gets thousands of unique visitors per day, shared hosting (like hostgator hostinghostmonster hosting etc) can not fulfill your needs and you have to move your blog to a dedicated server or a VPS (Virtual Private Server).

There are two kind of VPS - managed and unmanaged. In Managed VPS, you dont have to install applications and software and in Unmanaged VPS, you have to take care of your VPS and have to install all apps. So, Unmanaged VPS is quit difficult thing for newbie VPS seekers.
When I was looking for a managed VPS, i just navigated my browser to hostgator.com as they provide Managed VPS with several Levels (levels means VPS packages) and i was already with them having a shared hosting account with them. Here is my Experience with Hostgator VPS. You can call this Hostgator VPS Review.
Positive Points - Advantages
  • Several VPS Plans: starting from $19.95
  • Fully Managed Linux VPS Hosting
  • Weekly automated off site backups
  • Gigabit uplink with a guaranteed 20mbit connection
  • Multiple layers of network security
  • Multiple bandwidth providers
  • Server Monitoring
  • Dell PowerEdge Servers
  • Fully Customized Hardware Specs
  • DDR3 ECC RAM
  • Ability to install and customize applications
  • Apache Web Server
  • Optional cPanel with WHM Control Panel (cPanel and WHM)
  • CentOS Linux with Full Root Access (64-bit with 32-bit Compatibility)
  • Supports: MySQL, PHP, Perl, Python (Django), Ruby (on Rails), FFMpeg
  • Secured VPS with free IPTables Firewall
  • Two Control Panels - Virtuozzo and Cpanel
  • Purchase additional IP addresses (upto 32). 

    Negative Points - Disdvantages
    • They over-sell dedicated servers
    • Resources limitation even you go with their VPS Level 6 or Level 7
    • If you want to upgrade your HostGator shared hosting account to HostGator VPS, you need about 72 hours to see your site/blog Live on VPS as they take about 48 hours to setup VPS and 24 hours to transfer files from shared account to your VPS.
    • Monthly billing really sucks. You have to pay them monthly charges i.e. you can not purchase a VPS for more than 1 month.
    • You have to pay them extra $10/month if you want to have Cpanel
      Hostgator is best for shared hosting solutions but their VPS plans are not much appreciated by (me and) other professional bloggers. However, you should try their VPS as they come with 45 days money back guarantee. Click Here to Purchase VPS Hosting from HostGator.com
