What exactly does 'Virtual' mean?
It means a number of physical machines brought together to form a virtual infrastructure. This is then centrally managed and provides a high degree of reliability and availability. The interaction with virtual servers is the same as dedicated servers: you get remote access via remote desktop or terminal SSH.
VPS offers you computing resources at a lower price when compared to dedicated servers, which means that ‘going virtual’ will be more affordable for you or your business.
Tell me a bit more about the process and what I get?
First, you’ll need to decide which package you want, and then you can choose and order your operating system and any add-ons you require. You will get the dedicated allocations and, after we’ve provisioned your VPS, we’ll send you an email with everything you need to get started.
You can stop and start your VPS from our Customer Zone, making it easy for you to troubleshoot, and you will also have full remote and SSH access.
What can I do with my VPS? Are there any limitations?
You can do many things with your VPS. Because you have full administrative access, a VPS can be fully customised. The only exception is that it does not violate our Terms of Service.
What if I want to upgrade, downgrade or cancel?
You can upgrade or downgrade your web Hosting package at any time by simply logging into your Customer Zone and choosing your new Hosting package. Upgrades are instant; downgrades are activated at month end, if initiated before the 20th of that month.
And since there are no contracts, if you decide to cancel your shared hosting service it will be terminated at the end of your current billing period – it’s as simple as that.
