What are Virtual Private Servers?

On a shared platform, server resources are shared between all sites on the server, and the performance of your site hinges upon every other site on that server being well-behaved. In a shared environment, server configuration and installed modules are essentially locked down - some provision is made to allow for end-user configuration (PHP.ini modification for example), but essentially, you have to take what you're given.

What a VPS offers you is a dedicated server environment that is located on shared hardware. You purchase a dedicated allocation of resources, and they are not shared with other users. To the end-user a Virtual server is functionally identical to a dedicated server. So essentially, a VPS offers you the same level of control as a dedicated server, but without the price-tag. However, that doesn't mean that VPS is an inferior product to a dedicated server, far from it. Depending upon the implementation, a virtual server can offer distinct advantages over its physical counterpart.

A VPS can be a much more elastic product than a dedicated server - a dedicated server has fixed hardware, and once a server reaches working capacity, your options are to migrate, add another server, or deal with downtime whilst an upgrade occurs. The resources assigned to a VPS can be scaled to meet usage requirements, as the underlying server hardware is typically extremely powerful.

Growth: Your VPS can grow with your business - as you add more clients, or as your clients increase in size, your VPS can too.

Flexibility: Your VPS is multi-purpose. It can be a webserver, fileserver, FTP server, mailserver, game server.

Power: Our VPS is based upon advanced technology, and high powered Dell server hardware, optimised for virtualisation.

Control: Users have full root access, can rebuild on command. They also have access to features not available on a dedicated server, like out-of-band console access, and a recovery build.

Value: We are one of the cheapest providers of a premium VPS product. This is because we build everything in-house, from the ground up. We don't pay for premade solutions. VPS provide the same level of flexibility as dedicated servers, but nowhere near the price.

Data Security: The RAID10 setup on our servers ensures that we have a high level of redundancy, but remember redundancy is *NOT* a backup. We provide a very cheap backup solution, with options for both NFS mount and free snapshots.
