Why Webuzo VPS Hosting?
Table of Contents
Webuzo is a single user control panel. It means that it was developed for individual use rather than for reselling. Which means that it is a good choice for individual use (whether personal or business).
Like cPanel and DirectAdmin, Webuzo is a proprietary – not open-source – control panel developed by the same company behind Softaculous. It is, however, much cheaper. It costs $2.50 a month or $25 a year. Although there is a free version of Webuzo, you will need the license to install both system apps (such as LEMP) and web apps (such as WordPress).
Similar to other control panels, Webuzo is commonly installed on CentOS operating system. Some hosts (e.g. Hostinger, A2 Hosting and AltusHost) let you further choose between CentOS and Ubuntu.
We normally recommend managed VPS hosting to most users. But Webuzo is that easy to use that many website owners will be able to run an unmanaged VPS with Webuzo. Generally, if you have tried Cloudways and found it simple enough, you are likely to be able to manage your own Webuzo VPS.
The hosts below provide a pre-installed Webuzo on a VPS of your choice. In addition to a pre-installed Webuzo control panel, they all include the following features:
Besides cPanel and DirectAdmin, InterServer fully supports Webuzo VPS hosting. It pre-installs Webuzo on its Virtuozzo platform. The pricing starts at $6 a month. If you need a managed Webuzo VPS, InterServer offers managed support for high-resource servers (8 GB RAM and higher). A managed Webuzo VPS costs $24 a month.
Besides cheap web hosting, Hostinger offers semi-managed Webuzo VPS hosting. It means that you are responsible for managing your VPS but should you need advice or basic support, Hostinger is availbale 24/7.
A2 Hosting provides unmanaged OpenVZ VPS starting at $5 (512 MB RAM). Since Webuzo requires at least 1 GB of RAM, the cheapest Webuzo VPS costs $10 a month. You can configure disc space, CPU and other resources. You can also choose between CentOS and Ubuntu operating systems for your Webuzo VPS. A2 Hosting furthermore offers prorated anytime refunds.
