Shared Servers

VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. VPS Hosting technology presents multiple isolated server environments on a single physical server. Each VPS uses its own hard disk space, RAM, CPU, dedicated IP addresses and it can be rebooted independently. Virtual Private Servers allow multiple customers to share the expense of hardware and network connections without sacrificing privacy, performance or preference. Unlike standard shared hosting, VPS accounts on the same server do not impact on one another. Each VPS is owned and controlled by one-end user and is fully independent of all other VPS hosting accounts located on the server.

Cobalt Network VPS packages are hosted, typically, on 16-core/24-core Xeon HP ProLiant DL580 G5 servers with a minimum of 32GB/64GB RAM. Each server holds a maximum of 16/24 (standard equivalent) accounts. Each VPS account is allocated access to a dedicated percentage of the resources during peak load. When the server is not being fully utilised the VPS account can “burst above” its own resource limits taking advantage of any spare resources on the server. VPS hosting is ideal for users who do not want the expense of a dedicated server, but need the power, flexibility and reliability. It works as a great stepping stone between shared hosting and dedicated hosting. Email or call us today on +44 (0)1323 843433 for more information.

In nearly every perspective you can see a VPS as if it’s a dedicated server. If you need to host unlimited domains, have complete control of your environment and run your own applications, then you will benefit from having a VPS hosting account. In addition, a VPS provides the ability to manage your dedicated environment directly through SSH. All VPS servers come with the default CentOS software packages including Apache, PHP, Perl and MySQL pre-installed. Our VPS hosting packages match these needs giving you the reliable platform of your own private server, hassle free set-up and typically have the following specification:

  • OS: CentOS Linux (optional Windows 2008 OS)
  • RAM: 256MB, 512MB or 1GB (optional 2GB -> 16GB)
  • HDD: 20GB, 30GB or 40GB (larger sizes possible)
  • Bandwidth: Full 100Mbps burstable
  • Traffic: 10GB, 20GB or 50GB per month

Why choose VPS? A shared server is an ideal choice for professionals and business owners in need of complete control of their hosting along with the flexibility and freedom of dedicated server at a fraction of the cost. VPS offers full root SSH access command line administration along with the ability to host unlimited domains, install custom software/applications, or resell hosting.
