Purchase a VPS
So you want something a little more powerful? Maybe you have a very busy e-commerce website with thousands of products and want hosting that is more advanced, high performance and a little bit special. If this is the case – virtual private servers are for you.
The tech behind these immensely powerful servers speaks for itself:
- Dell PowerEdge r7xx Servers
- Intel Xeon Processors (12 cores)
- 8 x 10k SAS Disks & super fast 144GB RAM (RAID 10 arrays)
- Choose from Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, Ubuntu 11.4, CentOS 6, CentOS 5.7
The best thing about our VPS servers is that they are available as fully customised packages and can be upgraded to meet your changing requirements.
If you purchase a VPS server, you are not limited to just hosting your website on it, you can also use it to store files, as a database or as a gaming server. You are not limited by your VPS server and can install any scripts / software that you desire. For peace of mind, our bootable recovery build ensures that you will always be able to access your data in any eventuality.
Sound good to you? Check out our VPS hosting features and packages above for more information.
Please note all VPS and Dedicated servers are self managed unless otherwise stated.
Do I need a VPS or Shared Hosting (1,2,3, Nut)
Most websites will run ok on a shared server. Our own website runs on our shared platform perfectly fine. Generally people turn to a VPS when they start to get so much traffic that they pass the 5% CPU usage limit on shared hosting or if their old host has informed them that they are exceeding the shared resources. If you're not sure if you need shared hosting or VPS then the odds are it is a shared platform that you require.
Do VPS come with the same features as shared hosting?
No, a VPS comes without most of the features shared hosting does as default. We strongly suggest purchasing either Plesk or cPanel if you are new to VPS.
Internet VPS Technology
KVM is a hypervisor that integrates deeply with the host OS, ensuring that each VPS, whether it is running Linux or Windows, can use the hardware to its maximum potential.
Cloud hosting technology
In the unlikely event of hardware failure, our migration technology ensures that your data is quickly transferred to another server.
Bootable recovery build
Our recovery build helps ensure that you can always access your data, even in the event of disaster.
Full root access and out of band console
Our VPS come with full root access allowing you to install any scripts or software you want. Out of band SSH access means you can log in to your Virtual Server even if it is not accessible to the outside world.
Use your Virtual Server for more than just hosting your website. A VPS is also perfect for use as a file, database, email, or gaming server.
