US VPS

FAQ – Frequently asked questions

A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a cloud-based virtual server that doesn't come with the high costs associated with a baremetal or physical server. It takes a portion of the memory, processor, and storage provided by a much bigger server, and creates its own virtual machine from those resources.

For more information, check out our full article on “What is a Virtual Private Server”.

Cloud infrastructure in the USA has grown exponentially over the last 15+ years, giving the country an economy of scale that nobody else in the world can match. Since resources are more plentiful, this makes virtualized servers cheaper. It's also worth mentioning that the hosting choices in most metropolitan areas are at an all-time high.

But outside of the cost and availability factors, there are lots of reasons for VPS hosting in the USA:

  • Massive customer base: North America is the home to over 500 million people. Most of them speak English, making localization less of a problem. With a single website or app you can service well over 80% of the market. Compare that to the Europe, where heavy localization is needed for every 100 million potential clients.
  • Gaming: China and the United States are the undisputed market leaders in gaming. Because of the difficult regulatory issues associated with entering the Chinese market, targeting gamers in the USA makes a lot of sense. With around $28 billion in gaming revenue up for grabs, you can provide local hosting and download services using a VPS in the USA.
  • BTB: America offers some of the most lucrative business to business in the world, particularly in the tech and banking sectors.

Go to your plan overview by clicking on Configure to set the various options for your VPS plan. That includes the country and in some cases, the metropolitan area, of your VPS’s data center.
