What is VPS Hosting?
A VPS hosting environment mimics a dedicated server within a shared hosting environment. The resources dedicated to the VPS plan are not shared with the other hosts on the physical server, which offers a great amount of reliability and performance.
What are the advantages of VPS Hosting?
With HostGator’s VPS Hosting, your website and applications remain unaffected by the activities carried out by another user on the same server. Full root access helps you install any custom software without restrictions. Along with complete autonomy, VPS hosting gives you guaranteed resources like CPU, RAM, HDD and bandwidth.
Can I install cPanel on my VPS package?
cPanel is pre-installed with all our VPS Hosting plans, so you don’t have to worry about the purchase or installation of your control panel.
Is Dedicated IP available with VPS hosting plans?
You get 1 free default Dedicated IP with every VPS Hosting Plan. And an additional addon IP with Snappy 4000, Snappy 6000 & Snappy 8000. For additional IPs, kindly get in touch with the support team
Can I Upgrade/Downgrade my plan?

What is your backup policy?

Is there a Money Back Guarantee?
