Our Virtual Private Servers are a combination of the latest server-grade hardware components and industry-leading virtualization software OpenVZ. Each VPS is a truly unique and private environment with its own guaranteed resources and full root access. This system gives you the same level of root access as a dedicated server whilst sharing the cost of the hardware. With a VPS you are virtually running your own server but at a fraction of the cost. Our local VPS packages are hosted in Johannesburg, South Africa and offer unlimited bandwidth.
With a virtual private server, you get complete control. Your VPS is able to be customized in whatever ways you wish. You can install special software,
configure your applications specifically for your needs, and do a myriad of other things not possible with a standard shared hosting account.
If you're not a Linux expert then a server control panel is the answer. cPanel/WHM licensing is also available (R150/month. cPanel is the industry leader in server management software, and is used on all our shared and reseller servers. Due to memory requirements we recommend 512MB or more (VPS2 or better).
