Getting Started with VPS Hosting

Welcome! This guide will teach you more about your VPS Hosting package.

Your new VPS package provides the power, control, flexibility and security of a dedicated server at an affordable price. Packed with disk space, RAM, and data transfer speed, Virtual Private Servers are designed for the advanced Web site developer. VPS Hosting users get root access to the server, independence from other server customers, and all of the benefits of dedicated Web Hosting without the associated hardware or maintenance costs.

All of our VPS hosting services include state-of-the-art technology from ParallelsTM, a leader in virtualization and automation software. VirtuozzoTM makes it easy to maintain, monitor, and manage server resources. PleskTM control panel automates tasks and simplifies the management and administration of your Web site.

This Setup Guide contains information to help you start using your VPS Hosting package.
