Do I need a VPS?

If you want the control and options of a dedicated server, but with the affordability of shared hosting, then a VPS is for you. They’re recommended for those who want to host both websites and apps.

Freedom and independence

Install what you want, when you want. Our advanced hardware gives you the headroom to run powerful modern applications. They’re perfect for development, business, gaming or communications.

Secure and resilient

Your VPS is partitioned from others and is as secure as a physical dedicated server. It’s in a physically-secure data centre with an uninterruptible power supply – so you can rely on it always being available. Our 1 Tbps anti-DDoS protection will cover you against denial of service attacks.

Compelling business case

If you run a business, it’s reassuring to have guaranteed compute and storage resources available. Simply spin-up a low-cost VM whenever you need it. A 20i VPS gives businesses the power of having a dedicated server, without the capital expense and worries of having your own hardware. It becomes an operational expense, like a utility.

Snapshot Backups

While our virtual private servers have a 99.99% uptime guarantee, there are still ways that a disaster may strike. For example, someone (not you – of course!) might miss a security update and your VPS could become a victim of malware.

So it’s still important to back up your VPS regularly. You can do this easily from the My20i control panel. But what if you forget..?

Our Snapshot Backup service automatically creates full backups of your virtual machines, apps and storage. You can set an automatic snapshot to take place on a daily, weekly or fortnightly basis.

VPS Private Network

Create a private, isolated network between any number of 20i virtual private servers. You can add a second IP address to a server, and make that address unreachable by the public internet. This can connect to other VPS on a secure 1 Gbps port.

A use case for a VPS Private Network might be if you wanted to add extra security to your site’s database. You could have two database servers without access to the internet. They would replicate between themselves. These databases could then be linked to a web server. Only the web server would have internet access, making the contents of your database more secure.

The fast 1 Gbps connection between servers will be private and there are no limits on bandwidth.

It’s highly available, with no single point of failure. Scaling is automatic – using Active-Active software-driven load balancers - so they can handle peaks of hundreds of thousands of requests.

It’s managed by our team so you don’t have to worry about managing a load balancing server. Get enterprise-level load balancing for £9.99/month – it’s activated instantly.

VPS: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Find answers to some frequently asked questions about VPS:

What is a VPS?

A virtual private server (VPS) is a way of hosting files and apps in a data centre. Like a dedicated server, it gives you your own resources: processors, memory and storage.

It’s different to a dedicated server in that you do not ‘own’ a specific piece of hardware. Instead, portions of a physical server are allocated to different users. Whatever these other users do, it can't affect your VPS performance. It’s an isolated private environment for your own use.

A VPS is different to shared hosting in that you are guaranteed hosting resources and you’re free to install any software. You choose these resources when you buy a VPS.

By default, an Unmanaged VPS won’t come with a control panel to manage your sites or applications, but you can install one. Our range of Managed VPS come with the bespoke My20i control panel which is perfect for managing your VPS and websites. You can also order cPanel for your Unmanaged VPS.

We manage the hardware and network that the VPS uses. We don’t manage the security, software or updates on the VPS itself - that will be your responsibility. We’d recommend an Unmanaged VPS if you’re confident with server management. If you require technical support and advice, then we’d recommend one of our Managed VPS.

Yes, our VPS plans are scalable and can be upgraded at any time. There’s no downtime when upgrading and it’s as simple as a click of a button from your VPS management area.

Each VPS comes with one free dedicated IP address. If you need more IP addresses, these can be purchased from within your VPS management area.
