What is a VPS?
VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. A VPS is a private server in the same way a dedicated server is. You should have full root access to do what you like to it. Reboot it when you like. Turn it on or off when you like.
The private server is provided using virtualization as a virtual machine, hence the virtual private server.
Why should I host in Australia?
If your service is primarily targeted at Australians you will get much better response times by using local VPS Hosting. Not to mention you’ll also get an SEO benefit as well as local Australian Support.
Last but not least you’ll also be helping the Australian economy as we’re an Australian business with Australian Staff.
Why use SSD Storage?
Great question! We hosting providers host all kinds of services for all kinds of businesses. This creates a truly random and unpredictable storage IOPS (input output operations per second) load.
The problem with traditional spinning HDDs is that they don’t perform so well on random IO jobs. SSDs on the other hand perform up-to 70 times faster on random I/O loads!
