As you grow, however, your managers will start to notice that there actually are some limitations to the concept of having just a shared hosting account. You cannot customise settings for certain programs and when you attempt to move some of your business into the cloud at your shared hosting account, you will likely start experiencing some problems.
Using A VPS or Virtual Private Server account, you can move past this type of question. They are normally just a little bit more expensive than a shared hosting account and they allow you to run any type of program that your company needs. A VPS can do this because it really is like having your own virtual computer in the cloud waiting for you to put the applications that you want on it.
VPS provides you with the ability to customise everything you want. You can choose from a wide choice of operating systems and control panels. You also get full admin (root) access and can run any software you want, which gives you complete control of every aspect of your website.
UKhost4u provides 8 GB of RAM with a basic VPS account and has options to increase that if you need to. If you plan to run database-centric applications like a CRM or a ERP or a CMS in your VPS space, you will want to have at least that much memory so that you can avoid any slowdowns for those using the site.
UKhost4u is committed to only hiring the most ethical, professional staff, while the network that hosts your data is highly protected and leads to our data centres which are physically based in the UK. Inside the data centre, we feature cameras, cctv, locked access and constant monitoring to ensure that there is no breach of the data that you store there.
UKhost4u offers a range of VPS plans, which are designed to fit your specific needs, such as disk space, memory and resource usage. You can easily upgrade or downgrade your plan whenever you need to with no hassle.
In addition to robust account types at a savings, UKhost4u is also at the forefront of providing many different pre-built operating systems that you can launch with the touch or click of a button.
While all of our VPS plans include free support during operating hours, it is often the case that IT people that work for companies need to make changes that require some advice during the hours that your firm is not working. So there are other support options for all hours of the day and the more comprehensive support plans end up costing a little bit more.
The two plans that cost extra also include monitored server service, which means that we will respond to problems with your server any time that it is not performing to a normal level. In addition, you receive a service level agreement that fixes the number of hours that can pass before someone gets back to you if the support queue is busy.
There are four major VPS plans to choose from. The entry level plan is known as Alpha, providing you with unlimited bandwidth, 8 gb of memory, 50 gb of storage, and an IP address. At the top end of the plan spectra is the Delta plan, which is 64 gb of memory, 500 gb of storage, 4 IPs, and 4 CPUS.
Each plan also comes with features that add value to a business user’s experience. One of the most prominent features that is available in all VPS packages is unlimited e-mail addresses. When you have unlimited, free e-mail addresses it makes it easier for you to grow your company without having to pay each time you do so.
Overall, if you are working for a growing business that is starting to outstrip the capabilities of its shared hosting account, consider moving to a VPS account. The packages that we offer at UKhost4u have been strategically designed to fit your particular needs.
