Despite our Managed Cloud VPS Hosting costing less than £25 per month, we haven’t compromised on speed, functionality or customer support!
All of our VPS hosting packages include unlimited bandwidth, and are fully managed from our UK-based datacentres. We take care of everything, so you can focus on what’s important – running your business.
With a monthly cost of between £24.99 for smaller websites and £49.99 for more exhaustive ones, Managed server hosting is an affordable solution for companies looking for a cloud based VPS in the UK that they can rely on.
What can I do with the NetNerd VPS hosting as opposed to any other NetNerd hosting plans?
A VPS is a Virtual Private server meaning you have complete control over it – you can choose to install your own software, have more control over your own security and you can customise things that you can’t on any of our other shared hosting plans.
Are there limits to numbers of cPanel accounts or any other size limitations with the VPS hosting?
You can create as many cPanel accounts as you like, and there’s no CPU/RAM limits other than the size of the VPS itself.
How do you access the VPS with NetNerd once I become a customer?
Access to our UK managed VPS is achieved through any Web Host Manager (WHM) software, as with any cPanel server for which you have root access.
How long does the VPS setup take with NetNerd?
Typically after completing the purchase on our website the fully managed VPS setup will take between 6-24 hours. We will email you with all access information as soon as the VPS is ready.
What kind of customer service and support is included with the VPS hosting?
Due to being fully managed, full support is provided by the NetNerd team. This includes offering UK business hours, UK based phone support, and a 24/7 ticket helpline which operates 365 days a year.
Shopping around the web it seems that NetNerd’s VPS service is very cheap - how can you offer the service at such a low price? (What’s the catch?!)
Because NetNerd has been operating for so many years and serve over 100,000 customers, we’re able to invest in the necessary resources at a large scale, enabling us to pass on a much larger discount to our customers. It’s a little bit like businesses that can buy goods at a wholesale price; when buying in bulk you can often pay a much reduced rate.
What are the benefits of the VPS being powered by Openstack?
Openstack is an industry standard virtualisation platform which is easy to scale and extremely reliable. Many big businesses power their hosting by the very same Openstack services. We felt it was important to invest in a platform that provides top quality, fast hosting with minimal downtime or service disruption.
Where abouts is the VPS hosted - it says UK based?
Our managed VPS are based in Bournemouth in the UK. We make use of biometric security, man traps, access cards – all the security requirements of a high-grade data centre, ensuring all information is completely safe, as well as still being based in the UK. This helps those companies concerned about their GDPR compliance as well as any potential data sovereignty issues.
Do these VPS hosts run on Linux or Windows?
Currently our managed VPS are using Linux and managed cPanel but at a later date we may launch unmanaged and Windows solutions.
What reason should I opt for one of NetNerd’s managed VPS solutions for hosting my website as opposed to another of the web hosting packages on offer?
Ultimately speed is the likely number 1 factor at play here. With our VPS platform we can provide unrivalled speed and performance which even outperforms some of our other hosting plans. The VPS we offer is ideal for higher usage websites which need more CPU, RAM or disk space than a shared hosting plan can provide. If you’ve got a resource-intensive website, and need to provide lightening load times, then our VPS ticks all your boxes.
Can I use your Managed VPS to act as a VPN to hide my internet browsing activity from third parties and to give me added security on the web?
It would be possible to create your own VPN server, you’d just need to install VPN server software on it and then configure your VPN client to connect to it – in effect making your VPS act as a relay by using VPN server software.
