What is a VPS Server?

Our Premium Hosting service uses a Virtual Private Server. If you want to know what that means, you’ve come to the right place.

The problem…

With standard web hosting, hundreds of websites are all stored together on one giant server, and they all have to share the same resources. What’s worse, if just one of those sites crashes, it can bring down the entire server. It’s fine for smaller websites, but most modern websites need something a little more powerful.

You could pay to have an entire server to yourself (also known as Dedicated Hosting), but the cost is prohibitively expensive. It also requires specialist technical knowledge. So, you can’t have a whole server to yourself, but you can’t share one with hundreds of others sites either… it’s a conundrum!

The solution…

VPS Hosting neatly solves these issues. They’re basically servers within a server. There’s one big physical server that hosts several virtual servers, each isolated from the others. Each one gets it own dedicated resources and behaves as if it were a stand-alone server.

Each VPS server has its own operating system, dedicated storage, CPU, RAM, and bandwidth – all the benefits of Dedicated Hosting, at a fraction of the cost.

And now, with our lightning-fast new VPS, hand-crafted by us for hosting WordPress websites, our Premium hosting service just got even better…
