Business hosting: Linux Hosting with the power of a private server

What is Business Hosting?

Business hosting is Linux Hosting (with cPanel), but with the power and resources of a private server without the need for a server administrator. Otherwise it's the same cPanel experience as shared hosting.

What's the difference between Linux shared hosting, business hosting, and a VPS?

  • Shared hosting is an inexpensive way to get your sites up on the web.
  • A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is more powerful, but costs more than shared hosting, and requires experience with server administration.
  • Business hosting is a balance between the two, offering the power of a VPS with the ease of shared hosting.

You can use this chart to see the major differences between each type of Linux hosting:

Resource limits in Shared Hosting and Business Hosting

Your cPanel hosting has a maximum amount of resources it can use, ensuring that no single account on a Shared Hosting server impacts other customers' experiences.
