About our Virtual Servers

Take control of your own server

A Virtual Server gives you access to your own private server, giving you complete control over what software you install. This makes it a great way to host services that can't easily be accommodated on shared hosting, such as Node.js, Java webapps, mod_php, Python (WSGI), and git.

What you get with a Virtual Server

A Virtual Server is just like a full dedicated server, and in some ways it is even more convenient. You get root on your own private server, but the hardware that it is running on is shared.

You can access the virtual screen, keyboard and mouse of your server using VNC, even when it is booting or doesn't have networking configured.

Grow your server to meet your needs

Our Virtual Servers can be upgraded at any time and at no extra cost: the price of the new service will be charged pro-rata from the time of the upgrade.

Upgrades typically require just a reboot in order to take effect.

IPv6 as standard

IPv6 is the future of the Internet. All our VPS come IPv6-enabled as standard. As the move to IPv6 accelerates, this ensures that your website and other services will remain directly accessible to all Internet clients. Don't forget to use our IPv6 health check to be sure you're ready!

Support

For more information, see our support pages.

Your choice of Operating System

You can install an operating system on your Virtual Server automatically using our pre-built OS images.

Alternatively, you can install one from an "ISO" image of a CD/DVD, allowing you to install almost any operating system and configure it exactly how you want it.

We provide a library of ISO images for popular operating systems or you can upload one of your own.
