Linux VPS

Our Linux VPS hosting plans are designed for developers and administrators who know what they’re doing, and how they want it done. We offer a range of scalable VPS hosting plans including windows VPS and managed VPS plans like our cPanel VPS option which comes with a suite of technical experts who manage everything you need your VPS services to handle. For Linux VPS hosting, you’re on your own.

What is Linux VPS hosting?

VPS hosting or virtual private server hosting is type of shared hosting that offers you more power, more flexibility and more storage than regular shared hosting solutions. Generally speaking, there are three tiers of hosting services available for people and businesses who need to store online material like webpages, databases and apps and the first tier starts start at regular shared hosting plans. These services are great for small businesses or individuals who need space and reliability for storing their data but when your web hosting demands more, that’s what your second tier option is for – VPS servers.

VPS hosting offers you the space of virtual servers rather than space on dedicated servers. VPS servers utilise SSD storage which offers super fast and secure storage designed for apps, websites, emails, etc. It works by using virtualisation software to partition the space on a physical server and create multiple virtual machines. Your data is stored on one of these partitions, or virtual servers, kept isolated and secure from other stored data and is yours to manage how you want. This includes installing your own operating system and running your own analytics, diagnostics, managing your security patches and monitoring your uptime.

The third tier storage option is purchasing space on dedicated physical servers. This can be expensive, requiring technical teams to manage your servers and steep fees for your storage use. VPS hosting is the ideal middle step between shared hosting providers and dedicated server space, and Crucial has been leading the field in VPS hosting in Australia since 2007.

We are proudly Australian owned, and our secure and reliable servers are located in a data centre owned by the Australian Pacific Data Centres, based in Sydney. We have a team of technical experts available to our customers 24/7 every day of the year. That is, of course, unless you intend to purchase one of our Linux VPS hosting plans.

With Linux VPS hosting from Crucial, you have complete control of your server and total responsibility. Designed for server administrators who know and understand how they want they server to operate, our Linux VPS offers you total control of your own virtual server. You are free to install Linux OS and get started immediately with our instant provisioning for new customers. You can also upgrade at any time with no lock-in contracts. We offer you the flexibility to manage your own server and speed with 99.9% uptime guaranteed. When your web hosting, databases and apps become too large, or your audience grows too big for your current plan to deliver optimal speed and accessibility, simply opt for another of our VPS plans.

Our Linux VPS hosting plans are designed specifically for developers and administrators who know what they’re doing and how to do it. If you know what open source and root access is, then this might be the plan for you. If you would prefer a more managed solution, choose from our cPanel (control panel) managed VPS plans which come with a dedicated technical team who monitors your server speed, takes care of security patches, operating system upgrades and all behind the scenes.

Choose your starting Linux VPS plan right now or speak with a friendly consultant about how Crucial can help you migrate your data to your own dedicated virtual server with full configuring access.
