Our task is to assist you in getting the most out of your Linux server. Regardless of whether you need help with the use or configuration of the Linux server, we are here at your disposal 24/7. Unlimited fully managed Linux support is just a click away.

Weekly Backup

To provide efficient disaster recovery, we provide you with a free weekly backup as part of our Linux VPS service. We also offer daily Linux backups and a second weekly backup available as an additional option.

Hosting Migrations

Move all of your websites and services over easily - we can migrate an unlimited number of websites and services over from your existing Linux server, all at no extra cost.

100% Uptime

We know that you rely on your Linux server being available at all times. Service upgrades are seamless and in most cases only a single reboot is required, minimizing your Linux server's downtime.


For those that need the convenience of a control panel, we offer both DirectAdmin and WHM/cPanel on all Linux servers with 2+ GB of RAM. On smaller Linux servers only DirectAdmin is available.

Our experienced migrations team is here to safely move your websites and services to RoseHosting. We will migrate your websites and move your files, databases, services, emails and more, for free.
about our migrations

How We Are Different

Our service is one-of-a-kind and here's why.
root access

Full Root Access

All hosting services include root access and allow you unrestricted access to your server and its operating system, with or without a control panel. Other providers allow you either root access with no managed support, or managed support only with their control panel. We will gladly provide you with all of them or any combination you want.
transparent pricing

Transparent Pricing

We don't hide our real prices behind bait-and-switch plans or too-good-to-be-true offers. The prices you see on your screen are the actual prices you'd be paying. We also won't increase your rates at renewal, or ever - the price you start with is the price you get to keep forever.
money back

100% Uptime SLA

We guarantee a true 100% uptime for your servers and we go one level beyond. For any hour of unscheduled downtime we will credit you 1000% (10x) the hours your service was down by dividing your monthly recurring service charges by the number of hours in a month (720 hours) and multiplying by the downtime hours.
dell servers

Best Dell® Servers

We use the latest-generation Dell® PowerEdge servers equipped with Intel® Xeon® Gold processors or better to keep your processes running smoothly and efficiently. That, combined with our enterprise-grade NVMe storage creates a system that will handle your online operations reliably, all day, every day.
usa location

U.S. Location

With our data center located in St. Louis, Missouri, you can expect low latency across the entire United States. Our network will provide you with great speed and low latency thanks to our data center location, less than 50 miles from the population center of the United States. All data center systems are N+1 redundant.
managed support

Fully Managed Service

All our hosting services come with our unlimited 24/7 fully-managed support service, all at no extra cost to you. We will setup and configure any software stack you need and will configure it and tune it manually to your specification and requirements - just let us know what you need and we'll handle the rest so you can focus on managing your business and not your servers.

Network Information

Our network configuration is designed with capacity and reliability in mind. We use redundant 10Gbit connections through several Tier-1 upstream providers. Depending on your plan, servers are able to use up to 1 Gbit/s of network bandwidth. Your websites will perform excellently on our network infrastructure, and will be reliably accessible from everywhere.
no limitations

No Arbitrary Limits

We impose no arbitrary limitations on your server. You can host as many websites, application and services as your server hardware can handle. Most providers limit you, to a predefined number of websites or WordPress installations, or sometimes even number of page views or visitors per month. We simply do not, feel free to use all the resources (CPU, RAM, Disk) available on your server with no restrictions.

    I have tested more than 20 hosting services in the past at WHSR - RoseHosting is easily one of the top 3 in term of server quality by far.

    RoseHosting has provided excellent VPS hosting services since the first day that I switched to their platform. My previous host was plagued with frequent hardware failures, server downtime, poor bandwidth and the inability to create backups correctly. RoseHosting has never once suffered from any of those problems.

  • reviewer
    I love RoseHosting so much, I kind of hate leaving a review. They are like a secret gem! Before them I was using a well known company and struggling. Rose Hosting basically held my hand through all of my VPS Hosting so I could concentrate on what I’m good at, web design.

    It's not the shopping that brings me back, it's the service afterwards. When ever I have questions, or something is wrong with my server, you guys/gals are on it quickly and professionally.

What is Managed
Linux VPS Hosting?

If you have a site that gets a lot of traffic, or at least, is expected to generate a lot of traffic, then you might want to consider getting a Linux VPS hosting package. A Linux VPS hosting package is also one of your best options if you want more control over the things that are installed on the server where your website is hosted at.

Linux VPS stands for a virtual private server running on a Linux system. A virtual private server is a virtual server hosted on a physical server. A server is virtual if it runs in a host computer’s memory. The host computer, in turn, can run a few other virtual servers.

Managed Linux VPS Hosting is the key to running your site, service, or business - whether you have a website, run software, or host files, a Linux VPS provides you with the ability to do all of that at the same time, with no limitations other than resources. With our Linux VPSes being fully managed, you also receive the convenience of having a team of Linux experts ready to assist you with any request that you might have.

The typical features of our managed Linux VPS hosting include the following:
  • Linux security features and tuning
  • Automatic OS updates, package installation on request
  • Hand-tailored Linux optimization of eligible services for improved performance and capacity
  • Dedicated resources for your Linux applications
  • Experienced Linux technical support with focus on your OS and its software & services
  • Installation/configuration of software and services
  • Migration of an unlimited number of websites and data from your previous Linux hosting provider


A virtual private server is just a virtual partition on a physical host computer. The physical server is divided into several virtual servers, which could diffuse the cost and overhead expenses between the users of the virtual partitions. This is why a Linux VPS is comparatively cheaper than a dedicated server, which, as its name implies, is dedicated to only one user. For a more detailed overview of the differences, check our Physical Server (dedicated) vs Virtual Server (VPS) comparison.

Aside from being more cost-efficient than dedicated servers, Linux virtual private servers often run on host computers that are more powerful than dedicated servers—performance and capacity are often greater than dedicated servers.

Our Managed
Linux VPS Hosting

With over 20 years of experience in the web hosting industry, we have the knowledge and the expertise to give you what we believe is the best Linux VPS hosting available on the market today.

We were the first company in the world to provide commercially available Linux VPS hosting, starting back in 2001. Since then, we have advanced and innovated to provide the best Linux hosting experience possible at this price point.

Our expert Managed Linux VPS support team is second-to-none. We provide you with one of the fastest Linux technical support teams available. While this is great, what really makes our team special is the fact that our Linux VPSes are fully-managed.

What this means is that no matter the nature of the problem, even if the problem is software that you installed or a mistake someone in your business made, our team of expert Linux system administrators will fix your problem within minutes. Thanks to our Live Chat and Ticketing System, our response times are only 5 minutes on average. The best part is that this is all included for free with your Linux VPS purchase, for as long as you remain a customer with us. Yes, Linux tech support really can be that good and affordable.

If you need specific software or a software stack to be installed onto your Linux server, don’t hesitate to reach out to our Linux support team. We perform software installs on your Linux server as well as optimization of more popular software such as WordPress and Magento.

This is not a cookie-cutter optimization script that performs the same operations on all Linux servers - our system administrators manually fine-tune and optimize your Linux server based on its configuration in order to maximize speed based on your unique requirements and use case. Customer treatment like this is something that you will not find anywhere else.

We are also the only Managed Linux VPS hosting provider that grants customers full root access to their Linux VPS, with or without a control panel, while still providing the Fully Managed Linux  support that our customers love. This gives you complete control over everything on your Linux server (much like a dedicated server) while still giving you the security and confidence to do anything, knowing that you have a helping hand to rely on if something goes wrong.

Our Linux VPSes excel at speed and reliability, too. With the latest-generation Intel Xeon processors, DDR4 memory, and Enterprise-Grade NVMe solid-state storage, our Linux VPS’s speed will blow you away. Our data center is located close to the population center of the United States, utilizing several Gigabit and OC3 Tier-1 upstream providers, meaning that your  Linux server’s response times will be lightning-fast for everyone.

On top of this, we provide a 100% uptime guarantee across all of our Linux plans. This is better than virtually every other Linux web hosting provider on the market. Our guarantee means that you can rest easy knowing that your Linux server is available to everyone at all times. You will always be informed ahead of time if a Linux server needs to be taken offline for maintenance.

Our strict no-upsell strategy ensures that the prices you see are the prices you’ll pay for the Linux VPS that you want. We never hide extra payments or increased rates in fine print, and we don’t change our payment plans for existing customers.
We also never oversell our Linux server’s resources, which means that your server’s resources are available 100% of the time.

Linux is the core software needed for either the LAMP stack or LEMP stack, and we'll help you set up either of those simply with a request to our support team.

Why Choose A Linux VPS?

The Virtual Private Server (VPS) is an isolated virtual machine on a physical server. It is backed by its own RAM, storage, CPU, and operating system. Linux VPS hosting is mostly used by small and medium businesses expecting high-volume web traffic, a lot of growth, or data-heavy websites, since it ensures faster load times and near 100% uptime.

Linux VPSes provide a lot of flexibility and control - they are the middle ground between a closed-off shared host, and a full-on dedicated server. A Linux VPS balances the attributes of each, providing the modularity and expandability of a shared host, while also providing the control and freedom of a dedicated server.

Because of their virtual nature, it is easy to add or remove storage, RAM, CPUs, and so on. Their modularity also allows for several Linux VPSes to be easily added and removed from the host (physical) server, as well as moving them to other physical servers. This is unlike dedicated servers, which require physical maintenance in order to change the attributes and resources available on them.

Individuals and businesses that want more flexibility with their customization and development options should definitely go for Linux VPS hosting, especially those who are looking to get great performance and service without paying for a dedicated server, which could eat up a huge chunk of the site’s operating budget.

There are many benefits when using a Linux VPS hosting service, including ease of use, increased security, and improved reliability at a lower total cost of ownership. However, for most webmasters, programmers, designers, and developers, the true benefit of a Linux VPS is the flexibility. Each virtual private server is isolated with its own operating environment, which means that you can easily and safely install the operating system that you prefer or need—in this case, Linux—as well as remove or add software and applications easily whenever you want to.

You can also modify the environment of your VPS to suit your performance needs, as well as improve the experience of your site’s users or visitors. Flexibility can be the advantage you need to set you apart from your competitors.

Note that some Linux VPS providers won’t give you full root access to your Linux VPS, in which case you’ll have limited functionality. Be sure to get a Linux VPS where you’ll have full access to the VPS, so you can modify anything you want.

Latest Generation Servers

Our Linux servers are built to serve users like you with a premium, high-quality Linux VPS hosting experience that focuses on giving you convenience and transparency above all. You need a high-performance Linux server that can handle the visitors and requests that are being made to your website. It comes down to three main factors: CPU, Storage, and Network. Our CPUs are the latest-generation Intel® Xeon® Gold processors. Their excellent performance lets your Linux server handle many requests simulataneously, process data from requests that are made, and run several services at once with ease.

Storage is make-or-break for a website's performance. A fast processor is useless if it's always waiting for data to be loaded from the slow storage. That's why we only pair our high-performance processors with the best enterprise-grade NVMe SSD storage on the market. With read and write speeds in excess of 3 Gigabytes per second, you'll see load times that simply aren't possible with a regular SSD, not to mention spinning hard drives. Storage is the largest bottleneck in a server, and we use the best hardware to give your server the best Linux performance.

Having a high-performance and redundant network setup is also key in serving many visitors reliably. With our redundant 10Gbe uplinks and excellent data center location, we're able to provide your Linux VPS with excellent throughput, all while U.S. visitors enjoy faster response times.

These factors combined make for what we believe is some of the best Linux server hardware available at this price point.

We support the most popular Linux distributions including Ubuntu, AlmaLinux, and Debian. We provide our Linux VPS hosting with managed Linux support regardless of which distribution you choose.

I don’t know how to work with Linux, can I still use a Linux VPS?

Of course! If you get a fully managed Linux VPS, your provider will manage the server for you, and most probably, will install and configure anything you want to run on your Linux VPS. If you get a VPS from us, we’ll take care of your server 24/7 and we’ll install, configure and optimize anything for you. All these services are included for free with all our Managed Linux VPS hosting packages.

So if you use our hosting services, it means that you get to enjoy the benefits of a Linux VPS, without any knowledge of working with Linux.

Another option to ease the use of a Linux VPS for beginners is to get a VPS with cPanel, DirectAdmin, or any other hosting control panel. If you use a control panel, you can manage your server via a GUI, which is a lot easier, especially for beginners. Although, managing a Linux VPS from the command line is fun and you can learn a lot by doing that.


Yes, we can move an unlimited number of websites, software, data, files, databases, and more, from your existing hosting provider over to - all at no extra cost.

I want to move from a shared hosting environment to a Linux VPS, can I do that?

If you currently use shared hosting, you can easily move to a Linux VPS. One option is to do it yourself, but the migration process can be a bit complicated and is definitely not recommended for beginners. Your best option is to find a host that offers free website migrations and let them do it for you. You can even move from shared hosting with a control panel to a Linux VPS without a control panel.


You can upgrade your Linux VPS plan at any time with zero downtime. Your services stay online, and your data remains available and safe.


Of course. We don't limit what our users can do on their server - root access comes standard across all of our Linux VPS plans, with no effect on your managed support eligibility.


Your Linux VPS can be reinstalled and set up with new software whenever you like. Just let us know what you need to be done and we'll do it.


A managed Linux VPS is like having a personal IT support team on-hand whenever you need them. Our team of Linux experts is here to perform a variety of tasks on your Linux server upon request. Linux server maintenance, such as installing and updating packages. Software maintenance, such as installing or updating a software stack that you use (such as Odoo, Magento, WordPress, etc). We also fix errors related to services that are unable to start or run properly. On top of all of this, even if a user error breaks a service from running correctly, our team will look into the issue and do what they can to get you back up and running as soon as possible.

None of this is possible if you choose an unmanaged provider. The Linux VPS would be your responsibility alone to maintain and install software on it, as well as fix any issues that arise.
Managed Linux VPS Hosting is a valuable asset to those that need their Linux VPS to work while also not having the time and/or expertise to learn how to use or debug their Linux VPS.

Do I have to share a server with other users?

In most cases, yes. However, this does not mean that you will suffer from downtime or decreased performance. Each virtual server can run its own operating system, and each of these systems can be administered independently of each other. A virtual private server has its own operating system, data, and applications that are separated from all the other systems, applications, and data on the physical host server and the other virtual servers.

Despite sharing the physical server with other virtual private servers, you can still enjoy the benefits of a more expensive dedicated server without spending a lot of money for the service.

Is Linux VPS hosting for everyone?

Yes! Even if you run a personal blog dedicated to your interests, you can surely benefit from a Linux VPS hosting package. If you are building and developing a website for a company, you would also enjoy the benefits. Basically, if you are expecting growth and heavy site traffic on your website, then a Linux VPS is for you.

Individuals and companies that want more flexibility in their customization and development options should definitely go for a Linux VPS, especially those who are looking to get great performance and service without paying for a dedicated server, which could eat up a huge chunk of the site’s operating costs.


A VPS (or virtual private server) is essentially a real operating system running as a service inside of a physical server's operating system, also known as the host. The VPS gets its own dedicated resources from the host, which is what makes a Linux VPS superior to shared hosting, where the resources are shared between users.


We accept Mastercard, Visa, American Express, and Discover credit cards, as well as PayPal.


Once your Linux server is provisioned and you have told our team of experts what software you would like installed on your server, our expert Linux administrators will immediately start with the installation. The time it takes to install the software depends on the complexity of the setup. Migrations may take additional time, depending on the amount of data that needs to be migrated.


We sell licenses for the most popular control panels - DirectAdmin and WHM/cPanel. We can also install a free control panel of your choosing. Note that our managed  support might not cover the control panel depending on which control panel you choose - DirectAdmin and WHM/cPanel are covered under our managed support. The choice of control panel depends on the operating system chosen.
