What is VPS Hosting? More about VPS Hosting from the trusted Australian VPS Source
What is VPS hosting? A “virtual private server” is a way of using software to allocate the resources of a server so each partition is completely independent from the others. What this means for customers like you is that anything you could desire from your hosting account is possible when you use Crucial Cloud Hosting. In addition to being a highly affordable option, this sets you apart from organisations that are at the whim of their hosting company. Such enterprises might find themselves facing downtime because another of that company’s clients exceeded their quotas; this kind of problem is simply impossible when you use VPS.
VPS from Crucial Cloud Hosting also makes it very easy for you to extend the capabilities of your network at need. If something on your public-facing site “trends” to the top and you find yourself dealing with an extraordinary amount of traffic, Virtual Server hosting can be upgraded quickly. There is no worry about having your configuration changed, dealing with hidden fees, or waiting while services catch up with your needs. Upgrades are automatic!
How your business benefits from Virtual Server Hosting and VPS Web Hosting
Getting virtual server hosting from our premier Australian VPS range is one of the most powerful and flexible decisions you can make to grow your IT capabilities without growing your budget. When you choose VPS web hosting, you gain all the benefits of your own dedicated, physical server. Your virtual machine can be configured with your choice of operating systems and many other options not available from other hosts. You have complete control over how your resources are used, you can easily upgrade to a higher package when more resources are required.
With the best VPS hosting in Australia, you also benefit from enhanced security. Other, non-VPS hosting plans leave you vulnerable to any security risks that other users might create through their own network or website. This means that if another site on the same server is compromised, yours could easily be next; there is no division that prevents access between the two. With our VPS host options, including Linux VPS hosting, you never have to worry. Your VPS server hosting space is completely isolated from any other website or system.
