Compare Advanced Web Hosting Plans: Linux

If you have any questions about our web hosting plans, give us a call at (630) 420-2550 or if you prefer send us an e-mail.

The following table compares the features for our managed Linux Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting plans. Let ITS worry about managing the data center, network, hardware, core software applications, security updates, and data backups, so you can focus on your web site and applications. Our Add-Ons page includes additional capabilities and pricing.

Our Linux VPS plans provide a dedicated virtual server environment on powerful shared hardware. Our Linux VPS system is based on the Debian or CentOS (based on Red Hat) operating system to deliver the best of open source technology and the stability of a true enterprise-class platform. Other operating systems are available upon request. Compare Advanced Hosting to Shared Hosting.

Note: we have discontinued the Linux VPS 1 level server in favor of our Shared Plus 5 Site plan which we feel is more appropriate and higher performance for 5 or more web sites that don't actually need a virtual private server.

ITS highly recommends against, actively discourages, and does not support, forwarding e-mails to a mailbox on another service, even if ITS Mail Guard is used. It is increasingly likely the target service may detect externally forwarded mail as forged and blacklist our mail system.

One IP address is included; additional IP addresses are available as shown for an additional charge

When installing a custom SSL certificate, a unique IP address is required for maximum backwards browser/OS compatibility. Server Name Indication (SNI) is supported on all plans.
