What's a VPS?

A virtual private server (VPS, also referred to as Virtual Dedicated Server or VDS) is a preferred hosting solution for small to medium sized businesses since it delivers control at a level similar to a dedicated server at a price not too far from affordable shared hosting.

Benefits over a dedicated server

  • Burstable 
    Get the available resources you need when you need them.
  • Cost 
    All of the functionality of a dedicated server at a fraction of the cost.
  • Backup

  • Manageability 
    Our user friendly control panel allows you to seamlessly upgrade your VPS to a more powerful package instantly!
  • Flexibility 
    Instantly increase your service plan to provide for more resources as you grow, easily move to a new more powerful server.

Benefits over shared hosting

  • Security 
    Your file system is not accessible or viewable by any other customer, your files are ensured full privacy and security.
  • Control 
    With administrative or root access, you can modify server configuration files, install applications or modify system software.
  • Isolation 
    You are fully isolated from other users and actions on the server. No other customer can slow down or affect your service.
  • Performance 
    Your resources may be guaranteed based on your plan, nothing else on the server will affect the performance of your VPS.
