Virtual private server
A virtual private server (VPS) is created through the process of virtualization, by which a virtual replica of a physical server is created. A VPS is like having access to your own personal server with an allocated number of resources and choice of a pre-installed operating system. It is an isolated microsystem based on a shared server. Since a VPS is self contained, you have full control of your server setup and are responsible for all updates and security. You can also choose to opt for our managed service.
If you know your site is going to enjoy a high amount of traffic, a VPS is a safer option than shared hosting options. VPS is also a great option if you have a number of websites to host and want to enjoy the ability to tweak their setup behind the scenes.
A VPS server works hard when it is needed, with burstable memory that kicks in when site traffic picks up. You can also reap the benefits of dedicated bandwidth, CPU, disk space and RAM. VPS servers remove any limitations, allowing you complete flexibility. However, we still offer excellent technical support should you need it.
All data is stored on a RAID10 SAN, and your backups will be stored away from the primary data store, therefore adding extra peace of mind. We recommend configuring iptables on all VPS servers, as well as keeping patches up-to-date to keep your systems secure.
How to connect to VPS?
