What is Virtual Private Server hosting?
Virtual Private Server hosting is a type of low cost hosting that shares server resources with other VPSs. Unlike a dedicated server that provides you with hardware and resources unique to you, a VPS takes up virtual space on a larger server—meaning they are most often available at a lower cost to administrators and other users. However, this does not mean that you need to compromise on power or resources as we offer a variety of packages suited to a wide range of applications.
Our Virtual Private Servers also provides simple administration through the Parallels Plesk 12 Control Panel. This means that you can spend more time concentrating on your project and less time managing your server. Additionally, you can count on our great security to ensure all of the data stored on your Virtual Private Server is safe at all times.
Is a virtual server easy to manage?
Anyone can easily and simply manage VPS web hosting, as Parallels® Plesk 12 software guides you through the process. Plesk 12 is the world’s leading software for professional server administration, giving the user stress-free management of their system and server apps.
With this particular tool for server administrators, you have the ability to manage and process the functionality of your virtual hosting and organize user accounts and email addresses with the utmost of ease. Updates controlled via the menu will make sure your virtual server is always fast, safe and efficient. We can also set up or even switch on and off external firewalls to add additional security as required.
