VPS hosting or virtual private server hosting is a form of storage offered to people who need more
space and data security than is offered by their current shared server providers, but don’t want to
foot the cost of maintaining expensive and dedicated space on physical servers. VPS hosting uses
virtualisation software which partitions a physical server to offer you all of the major benefits of an
isolated storage environment without the advanced management requirements and higher costs
you would pay for dedicated server space.
We offer you a range of scalable plans for your VPS hosting, from beginners through to advanced
users. Our fully managed cpanel VPS hosting plans include an expert technical team who can handle
all of your technical needs behind the scenes, including the installation of your preferred operating
system. For anybody confident with basic server administration, you can choose a scalable VPS
hosting plan that suits you and your technical needs. These include plans offering anybody keen to
learn how to build a technical knowledge base but aren’t yet completely server savvy.

What to do with a VPS?
You know you have outgrown your current shared server hosting plan and provider when you don’t
have any more space for your websites and databases or when your pages and systems are running
too slowly, unable to keep up productively. VPS shared hosting is the next step up from traditional
shared server plans. You get more space, faster response time and higher productivity with
dedicated server space on a virtual private server. It’s also a lot cheaper than paying for and
maintaining dedicated physical server space.
The way it works is your storage for your websites and databases exists within a larger physical
server. However, your data is loaded into a partitioned part of that server, the VPS, and therefore
keep separate and isolated for the data stored within other partitions. VPS hosting is the affordable
server alternative which still offers you the space you need, the speed you need and either the
access and freedom to manage your own server, or a fully managed tech alternative which takes
care of your IT needs behind the scenes.
