More power, more control
A Virtual Server is the next step up from Web Hosting and Reseller Hosting. It offers many of the capabilities and features of a dedicated server, including root access and dedicated IP addresses, but at a much lower price. Users share a server, but because each Virtual Server is isolated from other accounts, you have full control over the server space.
Virtual Servers are ideal for companies and individuals that run higher-traffic websites or resource intensive applications, that need consistent performance and the flexibility to upgrade as your resource usage grows.
A Virtual Server comes with different resource limits. These resources are CPU, RAM, Disk Space and Bandwidth. Different websites and different applications use different types of resources, but it is usually the CPU and RAM that can cause issues on a Virtual Server under high traffic.
Our VPS plans are recommended for websites, or web hosts, who are experiencing a relatively high amount of traffic, and need the additional resources to cope.
Our VDS plans are recommended for resource intensive websites, or applications, that require a guaranteed level of resources. A VDS uses a different type of virtualisation, which creates a higher level of performance. While a VPS is fine for most people, if you need a really powerful solution, then a VDS is for you.
