Namecheap’s VPS Hosting refers to the partitioning of a physical server into multiple ones. Since each VPS features its own Operating System (OS), it receives a specific share of resources from one physical server so they are isolated, unable to interfere and can be separately rebooted.

Namecheap VPS Hosting is ideal for web developers, bloggers, resellers, and e-commerce owners. They offer top security, flexibility if and when your business scales in size, independence from neighbors, and full control over your hosting environment.

Managed WordPress Hosting

EasyWP Supersonic 100 GB SSD 500K visitors Powered by Namecheap Cloud

Namecheap’s Managed WordPress Hosting is a hosting environment specifically designed for WordPress that doesn’t require any maintenance on your part.

With Shared Hosting you are sharing your resources with other website owners. This means that if someone else’s website gets a lot of traffic, you may experience slowdowns or downtime. With Managed WordPress Hosting you’ll also never notice if a server or any hardware fails because your website stays containerised from such incidents.

You can install any theme or plugin of your choice using WordPress dashboard. It is recommended you avoid untrusted sources, as well as illegal free downloads of premium themes and plugins.

Namecheap’s Dedicated Servers Offering optimal security and maximum bandwidth. A Dedicated Server comes with all the resources—including root access—from one physical server. It’s ideal for those who are more tech-savvy (e.g. managing and configuring servers) and for businesses that are resource-intensive, handling a considerable amount of daily traffic.

Depending on your needs, Namecheap offers 3 types of Server Management: User-Responsible, Basic, and Complete. User-Responsible requires that the user takes full responsibility for server management. Basic is where core services are monitored by Namecheap with a proactive response if unexpected server failure occurs. Complete is where Namecheap runs and manages all server, software, and component services. Keep in mind Basic and Complete Managements are only available to those who have operating systems CloudLinux or CentOS and cPanel installed.
