Virtual Private Server

Virtual private servers share server hardware and resources but act like many, separate servers. This is a great solution for those who wish to have their website separate from other websites and avoids the issues with someone elses busy website slowing yours down.

A VPS is a great stepping stone between shared hosting and a dedicated server, normally priced on the guaranteed resources purchased.

Dedicated Server

Dedicated hosting is when your purchase a physical server that is hosted in a data centre. You have full control of the server and can install any operating system and software. A dedicated server is the highest level of server you would need if a lot of resources are required to run a busy website.

Ideal for larger businesses, big website projects or those who want to ensure security at every level.

Managed Server

Managed hosting is an extension to dedicated hosting, where the hardware is leased to a single client. The day-to-day management and maintenance of the server is done by the hosting providers technical staff, this would include software upgrades, hardware monitoring and repairs.

A managed server is good if your requirements demand that of a dedicated server but don’t have the technical skills to support it.
