I'm new to server management. Is DV Developer for me?

Probably not. DV Developer is targeted to power users who are comfortable working in the command line interface using SSH.

Which VPS product is right for me: DV, DV Developer, or Managed Hosting?

  • Select DV Developer if you are an experienced server administrator, familiar with Linux, completely comfortable working with the command line interface, and want the freedom that comes with building your system from the ground up.
  • Select DV if you are looking for an “out of the box” VPS solution. It comes pre-installed with your choice of either the Parallels® Plesk Panel or cPanel® to help administer your environment.
  • Select Managed Hosting if you are new to server management and require help along the way, or you just don’t want to spend your time managing your server.

How is DV different from a DV Developer?

There are four essential feature differences:

  • DV Developer is a minimal install without a web-based control panel. Linux command line skills are required to manage a DV Developer.
  • LAMP & Control Panel — DV includes an up-to-date LAMP stack and either the Parallels® Plesk Panel or cPanel®.
  • Disk Space—DV has up to 50% more disk space.
  • OS Choice—DV is provisioned with CentOS. The DV Developer server offers the choice of Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora or CentOS operating systems.
