What is a managed VPS and how can it benefit you?
A VPS is a virtual private server, and as the name suggests, is a versatile hosting solution that does not require physical equipment to run.
We specifically tailor your server to your precise needs (high user traffic rates, file-sharing sites, video-hosting etc.) so that you can be sure your site will function at its best. Once your server has been set up, it is then fully managed so that you can focus on running your site or business and we can make sure that your VPS is powering along at all times. Our high-calibre servers are UK based and make use of VMware virtual computing infrastructure, so you can be assured our managed VPS setups are supremely technically capable and versatile.
As an added bonus, the benefits are not limited to just you and your site users. Being virtual means that VPS networks use a fraction of the electricity that large physical servers require, which can easily take up an entire room. They are an ideal blend of efficiency, efficacy, and security.
One of the downsides of shared web hosting is how negatively the performance of other sites can affect that of your own. A private server frees you from this worry completely, as now your site is independent of any others. Not only this, but it means that you have greater control over the server as it is solely yours – you can make changes without being hamstrung by the restrictive nature of a shared server.
In this day and age, personal and business data stored online are extremely valuable to everyone. But unfortunately, the double-edged sword of an interconnected world is that personal data has become a target for criminals that seek out the weaknesses and vulnerabilities in online defences.
After recent news stories about large-scale data breaches and the new GDPR legislation, visitors to your site are likely to be more vigilant about the security of their information. Security is an utmost priority of ours and should you decide to use our VPS hosting services, you can rest easy and know that your site will be protected by a variety of defensive measures.
Performance and practicality
Having a responsive and reliable website is instrumental as crashes and slow loading times will no doubt drive visitors away. All of our VPS packages are highly capable and dependable when it comes to factors such as bandwidth allowance, virtual CPU computing power, and RAM amongst others. You can find out the exact details in the breakdown of each package further on to decide which one suits your technical and budgetary requirements.
As well as offering you superior technical capabilities compared to shared hosting, having your own dedicated managed VPS solution can also save you headaches when it comes to maintenance and upkeep of your server.
Shared web hosting is susceptible to a domino effect – one outage can result in many more across the board. Equally, when a physical server malfunctions, repairs can be hugely costly and time-consuming.
