A Virtual Private Server is a new breed of hosting that gives you the features and functionality of a dedicated server but at a much lower price point. A Virtual Private Server, or VPS, account will be created on one physical server along with a number of other VPS accounts. However, the physical server will be running special virtualization technology (in our case, OpenVZ or Xen) that separates the hardware and software. This allows each VPS to get full root access and be setup, customized and run independently of the physical hardware. You can even reboot your VPS!
If you are a web designer, a small web hosting company, a small/medium sized business or an advanced user who needs root access then chances are the answer is yes. A virtual private server (VPS) is a step up from a regular shared web hosting account. Resources are isolated so you are at far lower risk of someone else on the server causing you problem. You’ve got a lot of room to grow and can scale up and down our VPS plan quickly and easily, create your own reseller hosting accounts, setup and tweak Apache/PHP/MySQL and other services and enjoy all the benefits usually associated with a dedicated server at a much cheaper price point.
Our VPS hosting is fast, affordable and a good solution for many different needs.
As you can see, we offer a range of VPS options on both Xen and OpenVZ. Our Mini level plan, as the name suggests, is our entry-level package and designed for those with smaller requirements. Our Silver and Gold VPS plans are our most popular and support cPanel. Platinum Virtual Private Server offers the most disk space, bandwidth and memory resources out of any of our VPS plans so is ideal for the power user.
We strongly recommend you to choose cPanel for your VPS. cPanel includes WebHostManager which is a browser based interface used for managing many aspects of your Virtual Private Server. This makes it quicker and easy to create/modify/delete accounts, upgrade the software, view the current load of your VPS server and generally make life easier.
cPanel is well known as the world’s most popular control panel software.
There isn’t a firm answer to this question. It depends on the size/popularity of your website, how efficient the website is and the type of software the website uses. You can, however, easily see the current performance of your VPS using WebHostManager and if you see performance slowing or the available resources drying up, you can upgrade to the next level at any time. Just get in touch with our support team and they’ll perform the upgrade with the minimal downtime.
Like with any type of web hosting, you definitely get what you pay for. There are many cheap VPS hosts out there who offer unrealistically cheap Virtual Private Servers on inferior technology, slower hardware and outdated software. The support they provide is questionable and you will generally face far more problems choosing one of the very cheap providers.
Connections Dynamic VPS plans offer the perfect mix of affordability, performance, reliability and support. We are confident you will not find a better value VPS provider anywhere.
In most cases, the answer is yes. A VPS essentially operates the same as a stand-alone server. As long as your VPS meets the CPU, memory, and other system requirements of the software, you should not have a problem.
As the name implies, a self-managed VPS is largely under your supervision without much assistance from anyone else. It is your responsibility to maintain security and general maintenance of your virtual private server. A managed VPS from Connections Dynamic provides you with a number of support benefits and helps you greatly with server management responsibilities.
A control panel is not required to manage a VPS in general, but it does make management significantly easier and less time consuming.
Guaranteed RAM means that you will never have less than the guaranteed amount of memory available to you. If that amount is 1 GB, you will not ever have less than that, even if the server load is high for your VPS neighbors. Burstable RAM refers to additional memory that may be available to you, should the need arise. For example, if you exceed your guaranteed 1 GB, you may have up to 3GB of RAM at your disposal for short “bursts” of time, provided the system resources are available to accommodate it.
Root access means that you are king or queen of the castle. Like managing a dedicated server, you are the system administrator of your VPS. The Root user is the user with the highest level of permissions on a Linux or Unix server.
Yes. Your VPS will operate independently of other VPS installations. That means that each one has its own security, and it is not possible for a security breach in one to affect the others.
That is entirely dependent on your preferences. Some users find certain Linux distributions to be more user-friendly than others. Some provide unique software packages that may be important to you. Moreover, the security methods employed in each operating system may vary.
Yes, as long as the software complies with our acceptable use policy, you may install it on your VPS.
For starters, a dedicated server is more expensive. Also, dedicated servers require more maintenance, especially unmanaged servers. Most importantly, if you are considering a VPS, it is likely that your website or websites have not grown to the point where a dedicated server is necessary.
