Virtual Private Servers

What is a VPS?

A Virtual Private Server or VPS is exactly what it says on the tin. It is a server that is divided into a small number of VPS that share resources. Each VPS is completely “private” from the other VPS and functions the same as a regular server. But as multiple VPS are running under one set of server hardware, the running costs are significantly lower than having your own physical server.

Please note: If your VPS configuration includes Plesk licences, CentOS will be installed as the default operating system.

CentOS
CentOS is a community-supported, mainly free software operating system based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). CentOS is the most popular Linux distribution for web servers with almost 30% of all Linux servers using it.

Fedora Core
Fedora is the third most popular Linux-based operating system.

Ubuntu

Plesk licences

If you require a graphical interface to host domain names, create mailboxes and more, we recommend the Plesk control panel. Plesk licensing is based on the number of domains you host and is available as follows:

Number of domains supported Price per month
