If you’ve outgrown shared hosting, a managed VPS hosting service is the next step. A VPS is a private, virtual server run on a powerful machine and unlike shared hosting you have a guaranteed allocation of system resource. Meaning your website will perform better and if you outgrow it you can easily upgrade to a more powerful one – no migration required.A VPS hosting service mimics a dedicated server, but is within a shared hosting environment. Ideal for website owners that need more control, but don’t want to invest in a dedicated server. By dividing a server into virtual servers – each website is hosted on its own dedicated server, although you’ll actually be sharing a server with a few different users. So, who uses VPS servers for hosting? It’s for people who want dedicated hosting but don’t have the tech knowledge needed. VPS offers the cost benefits of shared hosting with the control of dedicated hosting. A great choice for advanced users and those that want specific software and package installations. You should use managed VPS servers if:

  • You have multiple email users working in the same office (same IP address). Shared and re-seller plans limit POP and IMAP connections to 30 per hour per connecting IP
  • You use email marketing or have a large contact mailing list. Shared and reseller plans limit each domain name to sending 500 emails per hour
  • You want to customise your hosting environment, or want something that is not compatible with our shared servers. Shared and reseller plans do not allow you to change the server hardware and software. Allowing these changes would affect other users.
  • If you’re looking for cheap vps, uk-based hosting, look no further. Planet Hippo offers three options, starting from just £11.99 per month.
  • Features of our cheap vps servers include: Free IP address, instant reboots, scalable resources, Dell PowerEdge serves, full root access and optional snapshot backups.
