Looking for a Linux VPS ?

Virtual Private Servers (VPS) offer a cost-effective solution to businesses that need the power and flexibility of a dedicated server but not the implied cost and complexity of management.

Choose from our Linux Plesk or Root VPS plans.

Linux Virtual Dedicated Server ?

As fully functional, VMware ESXi based Virtual Machines, each Virtual Dedicated Server performs and acts as a stand-alone server, allowing you to run exactly what you want to at a fraction of the cost of a Dedicated Server.

Choose from our Linux VDS plans.

* All prices exclude VAT where applicable. All plans, packages and offers are subject to terms and conditions of sale available on the site.
