Linux Hosting (with cPanel) is Web Hosting Plus, but it has all the resources of a dedicated server without the expense or hassle of hiring a server administrator. Aside from that, it’s the same cPanel interface as shared hosting.

What’s the difference between Linux Hosting, Web Hosting Plus, and a VPS?

  • You may get your websites up at a low price with shared hosting.
  • VPS hosting is more robust than shared hosting, but it’s also more expensive and necessitates knowledge of server administration.
  • Web Hosting Plus strikes a happy medium between the two, providing all the features of a virtual private server (VPS) and the simplicity of shared hosting.
