What Can You Use A VPS For?

Running A Website

This is the most obvious and popular use. Since virtual private servers provide more resources for your website (e.g. CPU, RAM, etc.) than shared hosting, you’ll find that your website feels more responsive. Plus, with full control over the virtual server, you can install and remove software at will according to your needs rather than being stuck with what the host offers.

Hosting A Server

Have you ever wanted to run your own Minecraft server? Or maybe you need a private Mumble host for your friends to chat on? Or if you’re leaning more towards business uses, you could use a VPS for hosting files and other media. Basically, anything that runs as a server can be run on a VPS.

Testing New Environments

Since dedicated hosting is so expensive, virtual servers can be used as testing grounds for server setups that aren’t ready for live deployment. They can also be useful for quick exploration and testing of new components: operating systems, frameworks, software, etc.

Seeding Torrents

Also known as a seedbox, you can use a virtual server strictly for torrenting purposes. If you torrent frequently, moving all of that action to a remote VPS not only frees up a lot of home bandwidth, but it also allows you to keep it going 24/7.

Private Backups

The leftover disk space in a VPS plan can be used to store private backups of important files. It’s cheaper to use cloud-based storage from a price-per-gigabyte perspective, but if you’re already using a VPS for some other reason and you have leftover space, you might as well think of it as free file storage.
