phpBB hosting experience

phpBB Optimization
and Fine-Tuning

We manually optimize and fine-tune your phpBB installation for the highest possible speed and efficiency specific to your requirements and use case.

Enterprise NVMe
Storage

To ensure the best phpBB performance, all our servers come with enterprise-grade NVMe storage. The experience is far superior compared to traditional SSD storage, and is lightyears ahead of spinning disks.

Fully Managed
phpBB Support

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

FREE Full Weekly
Backup

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

Full root
access

All phpBB hosting services include root access and allow you unrestricted access to your phpBB server and its operating system. Other providers allow you either root access or managed phpBB support. We gladly give you both.

100% Uptime
Guarantee

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

Control Panels
Available

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

Already Have phpBB Hosting?

Our team of experienced system administrators is there to remove the guesswork of safely moving your phpBB services to RoseHosting. We will migrate your websites and move your files, databases, 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.
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.
us 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

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.

Competitor Comparison

What is phpBB?

Managed phpBB Hosting

If managing your own phpBB installation sounds like a headache, or isn't something you want to do, then you came to the right place. We will help you with any aspect of using and configuring your phpBB installation, including free Let's Encrypt SSL Certificate installation, phpBB optimization, and best effort troubleshooting for any phpBB issue.

We offer fully managed phpBB hosting, and our experienced team of Linux system administrators are available 24/7 with a response time of less than 5 minutes, happy to assist you with any phpBB question or issue you may have, big or small. We'll make sure your phpBB runs perfectly on our virtual servers and we will optimize it for blazing-fast speed, ensuring maximum security.

Fully Managed Support

We take all of the guesswork out of having your own phpBB VPS. Our expert Linux system administrators can help get you up and running in mere minutes. On top of this, we offer something with all of our VPSes that we believe nobody else offers - full root access to your machine, without compromising on the phpBB support experience. That’s right - we not only let you have total control over everything that happens on your Managed phpBB VPS, but we also take care of any problems that arise, even if they’re caused by a mistake.

We focus on providing the fastest and most reliable phpBB Hosting experience possible. This begins with our phpBB server hardware. Our servers utilize the latest-generation Intel Xeon processors and are paired with DDR4 RAM and Enterprise-grade NVMe storage to provide the best possible performance for your phpBB stack.
fully managed phpbb

Latest Generation Servers

Our servers are built to serve users like you with a premium, high-quality phpBB hosting experience that focuses on giving you convenience and transparency above all. You need a high-performance phpBB 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 phpBB server handle many requests simultaneously, process data from requests that are made, and run several services at once with ease.

Storage is make-or-break for phpBB'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 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 phpBB server the best 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 phpBB 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 phpBB server hardware available at this price point.
