FAQ – Frequently asked questions

Along with the level of security, scalability, and unlimited traffic for no extra cost, there are many reasons to choose an VPS.

A VPS gives you the flexibility to install the apps that you need for both commercial and non-commercial users, whatever their use case.

This affordable server option is suitable for eCommerce stores and small business use. Owners of a WordPress site get greater flexibility and control over their settings. You can host multiple domains and unlimited traffic will guarantee high speed and performance for site visitors.

Perhaps you’re hosting small-scale games or learning web development. VPS servers offer a great playground for both.

IONOS offers a 30-day money-back guarantee for VPS users. If you decided that a managed server better suits your needs or if you simply don’t like the service offered by us, all you have to do is cancel for a full refund.

It depends. There are a few factors dictating the amount of RAM you should have. These include the intended purpose of your site or server, the amount of traffic you normally receive to your site, how many plugins you decide to use, and how many websites you plan on running through your VPS.

512MB of RAM is enough to host a simple website. However, if you want to run several complex websites or a gaming server, you should be looking at at least 8GB of RAM.

CPU cores will also affect the performance of your site. The higher the number of cores, the faster your site will load and the higher the uplink speed. So, whether you are looking to host a small-scale website, multiple websites, or need a solution that can handle very high traffic — we have the solution for you.

IONOS offers plans tailored to different needs. If you are focused on a CPU-optimized plan, we have special plans for this.
