I have hosted site in shared of unlimited domain hosting plan. i want to move to VPS, i need to know if i take a plan then how many domain i can host with one vps plan . example : lates take $5/m.

  • I'm thinking of opening an account and I would like to know the answer to this question as well.
    I'm assuming that as you have complete control over this environment that the answer is 'unlimited', but it would be good to get this clarified.

  • I believe that it is as many as you want (unlimited) but it will be limited by the resource usage of the sites you're running.

Hi there!

Great question! So here's the thing about moving to a VPS. You can host as much as you want on your server, but that isn't all that there is to it. Basically the question you want to ask shifts from "Can I" to "Should I?"

For example, you could host thousands of websites on our $5 server. The question then becomes whether or not that is actually a good idea.

As an administrator for your own VPS you might find yourself learning why shared hosting companies limit certain things, you might find out why they have specific setups that allow them to throttle your application performance down instead of crashing their servers (because yours will simply crash, those limits are often applied by licensed software like CloudLinux+cPanel).

It is absolutely worth it to transition to a VPS and learn how to manage your own servers. It generally isn't something you can just set up and forget about, you will find challenges from time to time and we will always be here to do our best to offer advice and guide you on that when you come across them :)

If I can be of any further assistance, please be sure to let me know.
