We have a page for introducing the top 10 shared hosting companies, however, for advance customers who need more server resources include space, traffic, CPU, RAM and more flexibility, we recommend the VPS Hosting (Virtual Private Server, also known as VDS – Virtual Dedicated Server).
Generally speaking, a shared hosting is good enough for a less than 5,000 daily unique visitors website (not too much pics), it will become hard to load if the daily UVs increase to 8,000 or more even for an article site, you must upgrade to a second level – VPS instead.
When comes to the VPS Hosting, you may find it hard to choose even you are shared hosting guru, why? Because there are too many VPS Hosting ‘companies’ and products on the market, too many to choose. And, traps numerous. Not like the shared hosting, we all know the super star hostgator, midphase, ipage, etc, VPS Hosting is complicated. Based on an investigation, over 90 percent vps hosting websites are personal owned and, maybe gone bankrupt at anytime so that put your data in danger (you know, the data is the most important factor for internet marketing). We encourage you to choose the VPS Hosting under formal corporate operation even you may will be need to pay a little bucks more.
Below we investigated and selected the TOP 5 famous corporate operated VPS Hosting for our customers, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This setting can be met 99% webmaster’s requiments.
