Top 3 Joomla VPS Hosting

If you are looking to build your website on Joomla, then you should look for a webhost that has support for PHP and MySQL, MSSQL or PostgreSQL. And if you are new to it and don’t know how to install it manually, then you may also want to ensure that your web host offers an auto-install script like Fantastico, Softaculous, SimpleScripts, etc. in order to make your job easy. In this post, we are listing down 3 of the best Joomla VPS hosting. Have a look:

Joomla VPS hosting

1. A2Hosting

The fully managed, cPanel VPS from A2 Hosting comes preinstalled with MySQL 5.5 and the latest cPanel supported version of PHP. You can install Joomla either manually or using the premium version of Softaculous which would cost you $3/month. Since this managed hosting is not targeted at developers, you will not get root access to the server but you’ll have boot, shutdown and reboot control. This is a fully redundant VPS that comes with guaranteed uptime of 99.9% and 24×7 support. For additional $10/month, you can further go for SSD Speed Boost that will make your website load 300% faster.

2. HostGator

HostGator has been the undisputed leader in managed hosting for a long time. They have 4 different VPS plans. But the first one (Snappy 500) is unmanaged and hence not recommended. All the other 3 plans (Snappy 1000 onwards) are fully managed and come with cPanel (optional). You can install Joomla on any number of domains/subdomains using the auto-install script in your cPanel. You also get private name servers and full root access. The weekly offsite backup works as a safeguard against any sudden loss of data. They also offer free site migration to their servers in case you are looking to move in from some other web host.
