Rent Your Own Server
What is a VPS?
A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a virtual machine sold as a service by an Internet hosting service. A VPS runs its own copy of an operating system (OS), and customers may have superuser-level access to that operating system instance, so they can install almost any software that runs on that OS.
You can rent your very own VPS from us. Costs vary depending on your requirements. Let us know which operating system you wish to install, and what resources you require, i.e. CPU cores, RAM and disk space, and we will give you an accurate quote. If you are not sure, we can discuss what you may need depending on your intentions. You can add your own software to your virtual server, as long as it’s compatible with your chosen operating system, after you have taken control of your account. Any assistance you need will be covered with the cost of the monthly rental fee.
Our servers are located in a secure data centre in Bristol. This means you will have high speed data access when you need it.
What are the benefits of having my own server?
Your VPS is protected behind a firewall. This means that your data is fully controlled by you and anyone who you choose to have access to your server. The physical server is locked in a secure data centre cabinet which can only be accessed by ourselves.
Having your own external server means your data can be accessed from any device connected to the internet with a browser. If you wish to share information with your colleagues, you can set up user profiles for them to access your data.
All our servers are backed up automatically every day. You will not have to worry about losing any work that you save to your VPS. The added benefit of saving your work to your external server is that your existing PC or laptop does not slow down due to lack of memory on your disk.
The VPS is tailored to your requirements. If you find that you need more space, not a problem. We can assign you more memory, disk space or CPU’s on request.
Rent your own VPS on a monthly basis for as little as £25
How do I access my Server?
Once your account is set up, we will email you an URL, which will link you to your login page. A separate email will be sent which will contain your username and password. You can change your login details after you first sign in if you wish.
I've forgotten my password! What can I do?
You can’t reset your password yourself. This is for security reasons. Give us a call or send us an email and we will call you back to reset your password.
Who can login to my server?
You can create an account for whoever you want to access your server. This is done by going to the ‘users’ program, and creating a ‘new user’. We can talk you through this if you experience any problems.
