A VPS server is an excellent choice when you are looking for more control/flexibility around your website. Whether it is the ability to scale resources to meet the needs of your growing business or the ability to install a custom application or custom configuration that makes your site run just the way you want.
This answer will vary based on your site and the VPS option you select. The entry level VPS nodes are targeted towards customers looking for more flexibility and will likely not result in a performance improvement, while the higher end VPS nodes should provide both flexibility and performance improvements.
HostGator offers unlimited free cPanel to cPanel migrations to our VPS Offering. For sites that require a manual migration due to complexity or a different control panel, we support up to 90 migrations based on the VPS package you select.
For our fully managed VPS server we include an easy to use custom cPanel Control Panel that offers many administrative tools but basic knowledge of file transfer and application management are beneficial. Our semi-managed offering does not include the control panel and will require a more in depth technical expertise to keep your website running smoothly.
On a VPS server, there is no default setting within cPanel on outbound email per hour but we strongly recommend that you set it to 500 emails per hour to avoid getting your IP blacklisted by an errant or compromised script within your site.
