New: self-managed VPS hosting at tsoHost

New: self-managed VPS hosting at tsoHost

Posted 10th June, 2021 by Sarah

Three letters have been on everyone’s lips at tsoHost this week – VPS.

We’ve just launched a brand-new collection of self-managed VPS products.

These VPS plans give you dedicated resources without you having to splash out on a dedicated server.

They’ve been designed for the likes of system admins, web developers, experienced web designers and those who know their way around a virtual private server.

In particular, this sort of hosting is ideal for anyone who offers design or development services to a portfolio of clients, those who run resource intensive or high traffic websites and apps, and those who need more flexibility when it comes to configuring a server.

There are six plans to choose from, featuring between one and 16 CPUs, 40 to 800GB of storage, and up to 64GB of RAM.

They’re highly tailorable, too. You can choose operating systems, add control panels and pick between standard and high RAM plans.

With one vCPU, 2GB RAM and 40GB storage, the first-tier plan is spot on for anyone who feels they have outgrown shared hosting and wants to make their first transition to a VPS product.

Plus, whether you start out with the first-tier plan or the more powerful options, you’ve got room to grow. Should you need more resources, you can upgrade to the next plan up in a single click.

The top 10 highlights of our new VPS offering

Build the exact server you need

There are six plans to choose from, but these can be configured in more than 40 different ways – add a control panel like cPanel or Plesk. Switch to a high RAM plan. Choose Windows over Linux and so on.

Root access

There are two main benefits to root access. The first is flexibility – install the exact applications that you need. The second is efficiency – if you know your SSH commands, you can carry out server admin faster than you can say ‘server admin’.

Performance monitoring

These plans allow you to put your server’s performance under a microscope. We’ll send you emails about any issues that may impact on your server’s efficiency, such as high resource usage and outages.

99.9% uptime

The performance monitoring alerts included in these plans should give you a certain degree of peace of mind. We top that up with our 99.9% uptime guarantee. Our network is monitored 24/7 and we have steadfast security such as DDoS protection firmly in place.

VPS support

If you need help restarting or rebuilding your server, you can direct your questions to a member of support team. 

Free backups

Automated weekly backups are included in the price of all these plans, so you have one less thing to think about.

One click upgrades

You can be as ambitious as you want to be with these plans. If you find yourself taking on a new project or new clients that require more resources, just upgrade your plan in a single click.

Global data centres

Choose a data centre that best suits your business. Pick from locations in Europe, North America or Asia Pacific to ensure your clients get the best page load speeds for them.

No noisy neighbors

The resources in these plans are yours and yours alone. You don’t have to worry about anyone else taking your share.

SSD storage

Every one of these plans comes with SSD NVMe storage, to ensure quicker loading times – up to three times faster than normal SSDs.

The three most frequently asked questions about our new VPS offering

How technical do you need to be to have VPS hosting?

You’ll get the most out of these plans if you know your way around a server. If you’re well-versed in SSH commands, you can use them for server admin, too.

If you’re looking for high power hosting but feel like the technical side of a VPS is too much, take a look at our Business Hosting packages, instead. These come with cPanel included, so you can manage your hosting admin through a graphical interface.

How long does it take to set up a VPS?

Usually, we will have your VPS up and running within 24 hours.
