Even if you don’t know what VPS Hosting is, you might need it. Let’s find out if you do!

VPS Hosting is the acronym for ‘Virtual Private Server Hosting’, and it is essentially your private slice of a server online. A section of one of our servers is set aside specifically for you – offering more space, higher speed, better uptime, individual security and administrative access. That’s your Virtual Private Server and yours alone!

So do you need VPS Hosting?

A standard shared hosting plan may well be enough for a small business website that’s just starting off. However, as your business grows over time your website will too and you may need to consider switching to VPS Hosting. 

What are the signs your website could benefit from VPS Hosting?

  • Your website is slow – your success means lots more people are flocking to your website, especially at peak hours, which could mean it doesn’t perform as well as it should. When our websites don’t perform well, our customers may lose patience and look elsewhere.
  • Your website displays errors – as your busy website starts drawing upon more and more server resources it could lead to errors being displayed to your customers. This provides them with a poor experience of your brand, potentially leading to negative reviews online.
  • Your website has security issues – your website is becoming popular, which invariably means it will also become a popular target for hackers. A VPS Hosting solution is how you shore up your defences, providing extremely robust security that makes it considerably harder to breach.

Self-managed or Managed VPS Hosting?

You’ll be looking after any software installed on it and performing any necessary updates, whilst we’ll take care of the network and the hardware. You’re not entirely on your own though, as we’ll always be available to offer any advice or support you may need. If you’re confident in your server management abilities and enjoy total flexibility, then self-managed VPS Hosting is perfect for you.

Managed – you don’t need to be a techie to enjoy the great benefits of VPS Hosting.
