about our migrations

How We Are Different

Our Linux VPS is one-of-a-kind and here's why.

root access

Root Access

Hosting providers often limit how you can use their servers - we'll gladly give you any combination of root access, a control panel, and fully managed support on the distribution that you prefer most. You can't find this anywhere else. 
transparent pricing

Transparent Pricing

Hosting prices that change without your knowledge is frustrating and confusing. That's why our prices are transparent and honest towards our users. The price you see is the price you get to keep for as long as that service is active!
money back

100% Uptime SLA

No more surprise downtime. For any hour of unscheduled downtime we will credit you 1000% (10x) the hours your server was down by dividing your monthly service charge by the number of hours in a month (720) and multiply by the downtime hours. 
dell servers

Best Dell® Hardware

The best VPS hosting starts with the best hardware. Our latest-generation Dell® PowerEdge servers are equipped with Intel® Xeon® Gold processors or better and NVMe storage to keep your Linux server running smoothly and efficiently. 
usa location

Located in the U.S.A.

Choose a hosting provider that is as local as your business. Our data center is located in St. Louis, MO, only 100 miles from the population center of the USA. This means low latency for your users. Our data center systems are N+1 redundant.
managed support

Fully Managed Service

Focus on your business while we do the rest - our hosting services come with our unlimited 24/7 fully-managed support service, all at no extra cost to you. This leaves you with more time and budget to spend elsewhere in your business.

Network Information

Don't let slow load times or downtime push your customers away. Benefit from up to 1Gbit/s of reliable bandwidth on our servers. We use redundant 10Gbit links through multiple Tier-1 upstream providers for maximum resiliency.
no limitations

No Arbitrary Limits

Most providers limit you in some way. We impose no arbitrary limitations on your server. You can host as many websites, applications, or services as your server hardware will handle. Feel free to use all of the resources on your server with no limits.

Here’s what some of our clients are saying.
I love RoseHosting so much, I kind of hate leaving a review. They are like a secret gem! Before them I was using a well known company and struggling. Rose Hosting basically held my hand through all of my VPS Hosting so I could concentrate on what I’m good at, web design.
Christina G.
They clearly have the best support for all companies i have been working with. You can chat with them anytime, friendly, supportive and it doesn't matter day or night. Good technical understanding. Keep up the good work guys!
Jordie van H.
Customer Service is by far the best you would ever find anywhere. They are an amazing team willing to collaborate and explain in detail in order to help. The team of technicians are fast pace and quick at solving any issue. they are absolutely great professionals.
Lery M.
I have tested more than 20 hosting services in the past at WHSR - RoseHosting is easily one of the top 3 in term of server quality by far.
Jerry L.
I have been with RoseHosting for over a decade. After dealing with other hosts and being frustrated by their lack of support and knowledge it was refreshing to finally find a host that not only hired experts, but also valued customers.

RoseHosting has very nice support time I ever met! Excellent Support team! Even I am 6000 miles away from them! I hope you have more customers!

Competitor Comparison

What is Managed
Linux VPS Hosting?

If you have a site that gets a lot of traffic or is expected to generate a lot of traffic soon, then you might want to consider getting a Linux VPS hosting package. A Linux VPS hosting service is also one of your best options if you want more control over the software that is installed on the server where your website is hosted.

A Linux VPS (or Virtual Private Server) is a Linux-based operating system running on a virtual private server. That virtual private server is hosted on a physical "host" server, running using part of the host server's resources. This allows the host server to run multiple virtual servers at the same time if its resources allow it to.

Managed Linux VPS Hosting is the key to running your site, service, or business with complete control. Whether you have a website, run software, or host files, a Linux VPS provides you with the ability to do all of that at the same time, with no limitations other than resources.

With our Linux VPSes being fully managed, you also receive the convenience of having a team of Linux experts ready to assist you with any request that you might have.

The typical features of our managed Linux VPS hosting include the following:
  • Linux security features and tuning
  • Automatic OS updates, package installation on request
  • Hand-tailored Linux optimization of eligible services for improved performance and capacity
  • Dedicated resources for your Linux applications
  • Experienced Linux technical support with focus on your OS and its software & services
  • Installation/configuration of software and services
  • Migration of an unlimited number of websites and data from your previous Linux hosting provider

Since the physical server is divided into several virtual servers, this allows the provider to diffuse the cost and overhead expenses between the users of the virtual partitions. This is why a Linux VPS is comparatively much more affordable than a dedicated server, which, as its name implies, is dedicated to only one user. For a more detailed overview of the differences, check our Physical Server (dedicated) vs Virtual Server (VPS) comparison.

Aside from being more cost-efficient than dedicated servers, Linux virtual private servers often run on host computers that are even more powerful than dedicated servers—performance and capacity are often much more capable in order to handle running many servers at the same time.

Our Managed
Linux VPS Hosting

With over 20 years of experience in the web hosting industry, we have the knowledge and the expertise to give you what we believe is the best Linux VPS hosting available on the market today.

We were the first company in the world to provide commercially available Linux VPS hosting, starting back in 2001. Since then, we have advanced and innovated to provide the best Linux hosting experience possible at this price point.

One of the most significant benefits of our fully managed hosting service is that you can spend the your time on budget on something other than your server. We simply provide full hosting support and you have full control. All you have to do is to let us handle your hosting; your VPS server will run 24/7 at its peak performance. What’s more, we will fine-tune and optimize the setup and configuration of your Linux VPS hosting to give you the best speed, performance, and efficiency.

Our expert Managed Linux VPS support team is second-to-none. We provide you with one of the fastest Linux technical support teams available. While this is great, what really makes our team special is the fact that our Linux VPSes are fully-managed.

What this means is that no matter the nature of the problem, even if the problem is software that you installed or a mistake someone in your business made, our team of expert Linux system administrators will fix your problem within minutes. Thanks to our Live Chat and Ticketing System, our response times are only 5 minutes on average. The best part is that this is all included for free with your Linux VPS purchase, for as long as you remain a customer with us. Yes, Linux tech support really can be that good and affordable.

If you need specific software or a software stack to be installed onto your Linux server, don’t hesitate to reach out to our Linux support team. We perform software installs on your Linux server as well as optimization of more popular software such as WordPress and Magento.

This is not a cookie-cutter optimization script that performs the same operations on all Linux servers - our system administrators manually fine-tune and optimize your Linux server based on its configuration in order to maximize speed based on your unique requirements and use case. Customer treatment like this is something that you will not find anywhere else.

We are also the only Managed Linux VPS hosting provider that grants customers full root access to their Linux VPS, with or without a control panel, while still providing the Fully Managed Linux support that our customers love. This gives you complete control over everything on your Linux server (much like a dedicated server) while still giving you the security and confidence to do anything, knowing that you have a helping hand to rely on if something goes wrong.

Our Linux VPSes excel at speed and reliability, too. With the latest-generation Intel Xeon processors, DDR4 memory, and Enterprise-Grade NVMe solid-state storage, our Linux VPS’s speed will blow you away. Our data center is located close to the population center of the United States, utilizing several Gigabit and OC3 Tier-1 upstream providers, meaning that your Linux server’s response times will be lightning-fast for everyone.

The most desirable advantage of our service is a 100% uptime guarantee across all hosting plans. We offer the best uptime guarantee on the market to provide the best Linux VPS hosting experience. Our service upgrades are seamless; in most cases, only a single reboot is required, which minimizes your Linux server's downtime with no risk to your data. Start building your online business by choosing the best uptime rate guarantee. Your website should no longer experience even a minute of downtime.

Our strict no-upsell strategy ensures that the prices you see are the prices you’ll pay for the Linux VPS that you want. The prices listed in our hosting plans - which are carefully considered for maximum value - are prices that you get to keep for as long as you have that service.

We avoid shadiness and do our best to set original prices that we proudly represent as transparent hosting prices, which are very hard to find in today's hosting market.

We never hide extra payments or increased rates in fine print, and we don’t change our payment plans for existing customers. We also never oversell our Linux server’s resources, which means that your server’s resources are available 100% of the time.

Linux is the core software needed for either the LAMP stack or LEMP stack, and we'll help you set up either of those simply with a request to our support team.

Why Choose A Linux VPS?

The Virtual Private Server (VPS) is an isolated virtual machine on a physical server. It is backed by its own RAM, storage, CPU, and operating system. Linux VPS hosting is mostly used by small and medium businesses expecting high-volume web traffic, a lot of growth, or data-heavy websites, since it ensures faster load times and near 100% uptime.

Linux VPSes provide a lot of flexibility and control - they are the middle ground between a closed-off shared host, and a full-on dedicated server. A Linux VPS balances the attributes of each, providing the modularity and expandability of a shared host, while also providing the control and freedom of a dedicated server.

Because of their virtual nature, it is easy to add or remove storage, RAM, CPUs, and so on. Their modularity also allows for several Linux VPSes to be easily added and removed from the host (physical) server, as well as moving them to other physical servers. This is unlike dedicated servers, which require physical maintenance in order to change the attributes and resources available on them.

Individuals and businesses that want more flexibility with their customization and development options should definitely go for Linux VPS hosting, especially those who are looking to get great performance and service without paying for a dedicated server, which could eat up a huge chunk of the site’s operating budget.

There are many benefits when using a Linux VPS hosting service, including ease of use, increased security, and improved reliability at a lower total cost of ownership. However, for most webmasters, programmers, designers, and developers, the true benefit of a Linux VPS is the flexibility. Each virtual private server is isolated with its own operating environment, which means that you can easily and safely install the operating system that you prefer or need—in this case, Linux—as well as remove or add software and applications easily whenever you want to.

You can also modify the environment of your VPS to suit your performance needs, as well as improve the experience of your site’s users or visitors. Flexibility can be the advantage you need to set you apart from your competitors.

Note that some Linux VPS providers won’t give you full root access to your Linux VPS, in which case you’ll have limited functionality. Be sure to get a Linux VPS where you’ll have full access to the VPS, so you can modify anything you want.

Latest Generation Servers

Even though you can't directly see it, hardware makes a huge difference in how your VPS performs in regular and peak workloads. Everything from the memory, CPU, and storage all change how your virtual server performs with website load speeds.

That's why we use the newest high-end PowerEdge line of servers from Dell. We equip them with Intel® Xeon® Gold processors or better to give you high performance and great multithreading capabilities. We also use the fastest DDR4 memory that these CPUs can handle to give you great memory speeds as well.

The real star of the show is our use of PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD storage. PCIe technology means that your storage is directly connected to your CPU, giving you amazing throughput. This gives your server some of the best performance that other hosting providers can only dream of giving you. What does PCIe 4.0 mean? This generation of PCI Express means that in a nutshell, you can expect transfer speeds of up to 6 GigaBYTES per second! This will let you read and write thousands of transactions almost instantly.

Last but not least, a high-quality network setup lets your server connect to the Internet and serve your business with great speed and reliability. We utilize multiple upstream providers to give our users excellent redundancy and network capacity.

These factors combined make for what we believe is the best Linux server hardware available at this price point.

We support the most popular Linux distributions including Ubuntu, AlmaLinux, and Debian. We provide our Linux VPS hosting with managed Linux support regardless of which distribution you choose.

Which Linux distribution is best for my Linux VPS?

While we offer several different options (Ubuntu, Debian, and AlmaLinux), there is no right or wrong answer. If you have specific Linux software that you need to run on a Linux VPS, we suggest you check the documentation of the software and see what they recommend you use.

Additionally, it is worth considering the support lifetime of each distribution. Some distributions only receive updates for a few years, while others receive support for up to a decade.

If you're still not sure which distribution to use, we recommend going with the latest version of Ubuntu that we offer. They provide security updates for up to 10 years, it's compatible with almost all new software, and its user friendliness makes Ubuntu our preferred choice.

I don’t know how to work with Linux, can I still use a Linux VPS?

Of course! If you get a fully managed Linux VPS, your provider will manage the server for you, and most probably, will install and configure anything you want to run on your Linux VPS. If you get a VPS from us, we’ll take care of your server 24/7 and we’ll install, configure and optimize anything for you. All these services are included for free with all our Managed Linux VPS hosting packages.

So if you use our hosting services, it means that you get to enjoy the benefits of a Linux VPS, without any knowledge of working with Linux.

Another option to ease the use of a Linux VPS for beginners is to get a VPS with cPanel, DirectAdmin, or any other hosting control panel. If you use a control panel, you can manage your server via a GUI, which is a lot easier, especially for beginners. Although, managing a Linux VPS from the command line is fun and you can learn a lot by doing that.

What does KVM virtualization mean? Does your Linux VPS hosting use KVM?

KVM, or Kernel-based Virtual Machine, is full virtualization on Linux done using CPU virtualization extensions. What it means for you and for VPS hosting is that unlike competitors that use OpenVZ (or OVZ) containerization, you actually get a full virtual machine running its own kernel as your VPS. You get virtualized hardware, such as storage devices, network devices, etc.

With KVM, you get better performance, better reliability, better security and privacy, and it's impossible for another user's resource usage to affect your VPS in any way.

RoseHosting exclusively provides VPSes using KVM technology. We also do not oversell any resources, so your CPU cores are truly yours, your RAM is yours, and your storage is - you guessed it - yours.

Do you migrate services other than websites?

Yes! We'll migrate any service from your existing hosting provider as long as it is compatible with the operating system that you choose. If it is compatible with a different distribution that we offer, we'll consult with you on whether you wish to switch to that distribution instead.

If no distributions are compatible with that service, we can either try updating that software to a compatible version, or it simply won't be able to be migrated. You can ask our experts using our live chat if you're not sure or if you would like to check first.

How long does it take to migrate my services?

Migrations entirely depend on the number of services you have, the size of the services, as well as the complexity of the setup at the old provider. A basic website might take only 20 minutes to migrate, while large, complex, interconnecting services spread across multiple servers might take days or even a week to set up properly.

What's important is to note that we are flexible on scheduling migrations. We can start migrating your services immediately once we have the credentials to your old server, or we can start migrating at a specific day and time, whichever you prefer.

I want to move from a shared hosting environment to a Linux VPS, can I do that?

If you currently use shared hosting, you can easily move to a Linux VPS. One option is to do it yourself, but the migration process can be a bit complicated and is definitely not recommended for beginners. Your best option is to find a host that offers free website migrations and let them do it for you. You can even move from shared hosting with a control panel to a Linux VPS without a control panel.

What is the difference between a VPS and a Dedicated Server?

A VPS (or virtual private server) is hosted inside of a host server - the host server gives a portion of its resources to the guest server so that it can run its own operating system and services. The result of this is a server that to you looks like its own standalone server where you can run your websites, apps, and more.

A Dedicated Server on the other hand is a server that is managed and run by the infrastructure surrounding it. Dedicated Servers usually come with more resources and capacity for running larger websites, more services concurrently, and so on. To you, the user, all that will seem different when you connect to the dedicated server is the presence of more resources.

We recommend starting with a VPS if you've never hosted something before, and slowly expand into using a dedicated server if your website demands such resources.

Can I upgrade my managed Linux server's resources?

Absolutely - you can order a service upgrade for your managed VPS and pay the invoice, after which we'll upgrade your hosting plan. Due to our use of KVM technology, a server restart is needed in order to upgrade the storage. However, you can schedule the reboot at a time that suits you. Your data is safe and you won't lose anything in the upgrade process.

Will you provide me with THE root user & privileges even if I get a control panel?

Believe it or not, yes! We do not limit the level of access you have on your server, even if you choose to use a control panel on your server. Additionally, we'll continue to provide our class-leading support to you no matter what kind of server configuration you need.


Your Linux VPS can be reinstalled and set up with new software whenever you like. Just let us know what you need to be done and we'll do it.

Does a managed Linux VPS help my business better than an Unmanaged VPS?

A Managed server affords you the single most previous resource: time. Instead of using up your time to manage and run your server as well as your business, you can cut your responsibilities down by letting experts handle the dirty work while you run your business. We'll install, update or remove software, adjust software configurations, optimize your services, and troubleshoot and attempt to fix any problems your server has. All you need to do is ask.

Unmanaged servers don't give you that convenience, meaning you would either need to do it all yourself or hire someone externally to manage your server for you.

Why increase your costs when you can have it all in one reasonable price?

Do I have to share a server with other users?

In most cases, yes. However, this does not mean that you will suffer from downtime or decreased performance. Each virtual server can run its own operating system, and each of these systems can be administered independently of each other. A virtual private server has its own operating system, data, and applications that are separated from all the other systems, applications, and data on the physical host server and the other virtual servers.

Despite sharing the physical server with other virtual private servers, you can still enjoy the benefits of a more expensive dedicated server without spending a lot of money for the service.

Is Linux VPS hosting for everyone?

Yes! Even if you run a personal blog dedicated to your interests, you can surely benefit from a Linux VPS hosting package. If you are building and developing a website for a company, you would also enjoy the benefits. Basically, if you are expecting growth and heavy site traffic on your website, then a Linux VPS is for you.

Individuals and companies that want more flexibility in their customization and development options should definitely go for a Linux VPS, especially those who are looking to get great performance and service without paying for a dedicated server, which could eat up a huge chunk of the site’s operating costs.

How does a virtual private server work?

All VPSes (VPS is short for virtual private server) use some kind of technology to take resources from the host server (the bare metal that the hosting provider uses) and allocate those resources to the VPS. This VPS then can run its own operating system, have its own files, and run services that are not managed by the host server.

A VPS has dedicated resources, which means that several VPSes can coexist on the host server, all without any of them interfering with one another. Your resources belong to you, and no other VPS can affect yours.

Which payment methods can I use?

RoseHosting accepts all Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express credit cards, as well as payments through PayPal.

After I order, how long does it take for my server to be ready?

If your invoice is paid for, your server will be provisioned immediately. You'll be able to access and start using your VPS within minutes. We recommend opening a ticket with everything you need installed as soon as you order so our experts can get started on setting everything up for you when the server is provisioned.

What does 'Free Control Panel' mean? Are there other control panels available?

When ordering a VPS, we give you the choice of getting the starter version of DirectAdmin at no cost to you, or you can select a discounted plan of DirectAdmin or cPanel/WHM for your server.

Additionally, if you have a different control panel that you want installed, you can ask us whether it's supported on our Linux VPSes - if it is, we'll gladly install it for you, for free.
