5 Stars Rated Chicago VPS



“I needed Chicago-based hosting for low-latency media streaming, and Cloudfitters has exceeded my expectations. Support has responded to my questions, the hardware has been stable, and my clients report ping times as low as 3ms over fiber. I tried the same application hosted by V, but it was unusable by some clients due to high (100ms) latency. I hadn’t heard of Cloudfitters before I signed up, but it was a good decision


“Working with Cloudfitters IAAS services is arguably one of the best decisions we made in 2020. They have a great Net Ops team and friendly support, and the staff is very professional. They helped us build a core network in Ashburn, VA, in a matter of months, and we’re doing better than ever. We’d highly recommend doing business with Cloudfitters!”

Questions and Answers about Chicago VPS

What to consider when choosing a Virtual Private Server for my Business?

Choosing the best Virtual Private Server (VPS) for your business workload is a critical decision that requires careful consideration. The right VPS can significantly impact your business’s performance, security, and scalability. Here are the steps to help you choose the best VPS for your business workload:

  1. Identify Your Workload Requirements: Start by understanding the specific requirements of your business workload. Consider factors such as the type of applications you run, the amount of traffic your website receives, the required CPU and RAM resources, storage needs, and any special software or configurations.
  2. Determine Your Budget: Set a budget for your VPS hosting. Be realistic about what you can afford, but also keep in mind that investing in a quality VPS is essential for your business’s success. Balance your budget with your performance and resource requirements.
  3. Consider Managed vs. Unmanaged VPS: Decide whether you need a managed or unmanaged VPS. A managed VPS comes with technical support and maintenance services, while an unmanaged VPS requires you to handle server administration. Choose based on your technical expertise and available resources.
  4. Evaluate Server Resources: Select a VPS plan that provides adequate server resources (CPU, RAM, storage, and bandwidth) to meet your workload demands. Pay attention to CPU cores and clock speed, as well as the type of storage (SSD for faster performance) offered by the hosting provider.
  5. Check Scalability Options: Ensure that your chosen VPS plan allows for scalability. Your business workload may grow over time, so it’s essential to have the flexibility to upgrade resources easily as needed without significant downtime.
  6. Review Data Center Locations: Consider the geographic location of the data centers where your VPS will be hosted. Hosting your VPS closer to your target audience can reduce latency and improve website performance for your users.
  7. Evaluate Uptime and Reliability: Look for a hosting provider with a strong track record of uptime and reliability. Read customer reviews and consider providers that offer service level agreements (SLAs) guaranteeing a certain level of uptime.
  8. Security Measures: Ensure that the hosting provider has robust security measures in place, including firewalls, DDoS protection, and regular security updates. Security is crucial to protect your business data and applications.
  9. Operating System Support: Check whether the hosting provider supports the operating system (e.g., Linux distributions or Windows) and software platforms (e.g., web servers, databases) required for your workload.
  10. Technical Support and Customer Service: Investigate the quality of customer support and technical assistance offered by the hosting provider. Access to responsive support can be invaluable when issues arise.
  11. Data Backup and Disaster Recovery: Ensure that the hosting provider offers data backup and disaster recovery options. Regular backups are essential to protect your data from loss or corruption.
  12. Read Reviews and Seek Recommendations: Research customer reviews, ask for recommendations from peers or industry forums, and check for third-party reviews and evaluations to gauge the hosting provider’s reputation.
  13. Trial Periods and Money-Back Guarantees: Consider providers that offer trial periods or money-back guarantees. This allows you to test the VPS performance and compatibility with your workload before committing.

Choosing the best VPS for your business workload requires a thorough understanding of your requirements and careful evaluation of hosting providers. Taking the time to assess your needs and research potential providers will help you make an informed decision that aligns with your business objectives.


How long will it take to get my Virtual Private Server online after placing my order?

As a new client, we will need to verify your order against any fraud record or potential red flags during the ordering process. If everything checks out, we can have your VPS online in less than 5 minutes.  For our existing clients, your VPS will be online and ready in less than 5 minutes.

Top reasons why choosing a Chicago VPS can benefit my Business and Workload
  1. Geographical Location: Chicago is centrally located within the United States. If your target audience or user base is spread across the country, hosting your VPS in Chicago can help provide low latency and faster access to your services for users from both the East and West Coasts. This can result in a better user experience.
  2. Network Connectivity: Chicago is a major hub for internet connectivity. It has a dense network infrastructure with numerous data centers and network providers. This means your VPS can benefit from excellent connectivity, lower downtime, and redundancy options due to the presence of multiple internet backbone providers.
  3. Reliability and Redundancy: Chicago is less prone to natural disasters compared to some other regions. It’s not in an earthquake-prone area, and the risk of extreme weather events is relatively low. This can translate to higher server uptime and data integrity.
  4. Low Latency to International Markets: If your VPS serves an international audience, Chicago’s central location within North America can help reduce latency for users connecting from other parts of the world. This can be crucial for applications that require real-time responsiveness.
  5. Affordable Data Center Costs: Compared to some other major cities like New York or San Francisco, Chicago often offers more affordable data center and hosting costs. This can be especially important for businesses looking to manage their hosting expenses while maintaining high-quality services.
  6. Legal and Compliance Considerations: Depending on your business or application, you might have specific legal or compliance requirements. Chicago’s legal and regulatory environment may be favorable for certain industries or data handling needs.
  7. Skilled Workforce: Chicago boasts a pool of skilled IT professionals and a strong technology ecosystem. This can be beneficial if you need to hire local talent or work with local service providers for managing your VPS.
  8. Robust Data Center Facilities: Chicago has numerous state-of-the-art data centers with advanced security measures and infrastructure. You can choose from a variety of hosting providers, allowing you to select one that aligns with your specific needs and budget.
  9. Scalability: If your hosting needs grow over time, having your VPS in a location like Chicago with a robust infrastructure and multiple hosting options gives you scalability options without major disruptions.
