If your serious about your website or it is growing too large for a traditional shared hosting plan, the next step is to make the transition to a Virtual Private Server or more commonly known as a VPS web hosting plan. Finding a quality VPS hosting provider is tougher than it looks, but I went through the trouble of find five potential hosting providers who are known for quality service and affordable prices.

Guide: Five Of The Top VPS Web Hosting Providers Option #1: DreamHost

Dreamhost is a popular web host and has an excellent reputation in the industry. They are very reasonably priced and are the only VPS hosting provider that I’m aware of that offers unlimited bandwidth and storage on all of their VPS hosting plans. Their pricing tiers are based solely on the amount of RAM dedicated to your VPS.

HostGator is probably the most well known and respected hosting providers for any website. They have been around since 2002 and pride themselves on excellent customer support and providing quality hosting services for an affordable price.
