VPS v the rest

Shared hosting runs on shared virtual resources and there are no dedicated RAM or CPU allocations. As your site grows, you may encounter performance issues because your website and database require more system resources.

This is where Virtual Private Servers come in. VPS gives you dedicated virtual resources, including your own storage space, vCPU, RAM and bandwidth. By taking advantage of these resources, you optimise your application and enjoy improved performance and greater stability.

Disk space, RAM and system resources

There are several factors to consider. One is that you can always upgrade should you reach the limits of your package. Another is that the operating system that you choose to install will take up space on your VPS. Because of this, Windows Server is ideally suited to the Virtual Plus package and above.

When it comes to RAM, the basic rule is the more you have the better - obviously within reason! This is because RAM is the fast, short-term memory available for your operating system, programmes and processes. More RAM means better performance.

And as with desktop computers, access to more CPUs will give you faster and greater processing power.

Frequently Asked Questions

 
What exactly does Virtual mean section icon image.

What exactly does 'Virtual' mean?

It means a number of physical machines brought together to form a virtual infrastructure. This is then centrally managed and provides a high degree of reliability and availability. The interaction with virtual servers is the same as dedicated servers: you get remote access via remote desktop or terminal SSH.

VPS gives you computing resources at a lower price when compared to dedicated servers which means that 'going virtual' equates to more affordability for you or your business.

 
What's included section icon image.

Tell me a bit more about the process and what I get?

Firstly, decide which package you want. (Hint - we've given you some tips above!) Then choose and order your Operating System and any add-ons. You get the dedicated allocations, and after we've provisioned your VPS we'll send you an email with everything you to get started. You’re then good to go!

You can stop and start your VPS from our Customer Zone - making it easy if you need to troubleshoot - and you also enjoy full remote and SSH access.
