How to order a managed VPS

This article shows how to order a managed VPS from Extra Host. Unlike semi-managed VPS packages, managed VPS packages provide an administrative environment similar to shared hosting plans. For example, with a managed VPS you can use cPanel to administer your web site.

  6. In the  Choose Billing Cycle list box, select the billing cycle that you want.
  7. Under Configurable Options, in the Softaculous License list box, select the Softaculous version that you want.
