Choosing whether or not to get a VPS server depends on the level of performance you need to give your users. If you are looking for performance, allocated resources, privacy and high performance SSD servers, then A VPS server is the right choice for you. It is highly capable of managing website traffic surges, and the most demanding site requests. Plus, it’s the midway between Shared hosting and dedicated hosting, still affordable and scalable based on your company needs.
Signing up for VPS hosting gives you the following automatically: You get two dedicated IP addresses, remote reboot, serial console access and fully managed VPS servers (cPanel is optional for some accounts and these are called semi-managed VPS). Plus, you get a high-performance server with 99.9% uptime and 24/7/365 dedicated support.
cPanel is recommended for helping you to manage your account easily and it is available with all our VPS plans. cPanel lets you manage and execute various account management tasks. So very basic knowledge is required.
However, in any case, having some amount of specialised aptitude is a plus. Especially if you’ll need to generate reports and install applications. In this case, having a specialised team to oversee this helps. We provide managed and semi-managed VPS hosting so, you have less tasks to deal with. All server maintenance tasks are all done in-house. We keep your high-performance site up and running all through the year.
With dedicated hosting, you're renting a physical high-performance server only for your organisation or site. Dedicated hosting executes operations significantly faster than shared hosting and VPS. Why? Well, the fact is you have exclusive access to an entire server. That is RAM, CPU, bandwidth, among other resources exclusively for you. If you have a demanding website and high-performance needs, dedicated servers have the capacity to effectively host your site.
Yes, in fact these all cater to different server requirements. Let’s examine Shared Hosting for example, it resembles a college dorm, – Many occupants in a single building, sharing similar resources, but it’s extremely cheap. Dedicated server hosting is like having a cutting-edge house, where you pay much more, and, you and only you have privileged access to its space and utilities. Finally, VPS is in the centre, where you have a couple of inhabitants in a similar building (server), however you each have devoted assets and are in full control of your home. It costs significantly less than a dedicated server, while giving similar dedicated resources as would a dedicated server.

A domain name is a custom web address that each website must have to go on the internet like www.yoursite.com. This is what users type into the search engine to find your address online. No two domain names can be the same, which means if there’s a specific one that you need and it’s available it’s best that you register it now. There are many diverse types of domain names extensions, .com being the most common. Take for example www.yoursite.com, .com is the TLD (Top Level Domain) extension. If a domain extension isn’t available, try another one. For example, if www.yoursite.com is taken, then, consider www.yoursite.net, www.yoursite.online, www.yoursite.org among others, which might be available.
First, try to keep your domain name short (think about simplicity) and catchy. Do some research, check the thesaurus and brainstorm. As soon as you think of the perfect domain name, check its availability, and if available, register it right away. You can add letters, numbers, and hyphens in your domain name, but special characters are prohibited.
ccTLD means country code top level domain. These are domains which bear the official country domain extension like .ie, .de, .fr, .uk and so on. Normally, to register a ccTLD you must reside in the given country or jurisdictions as stipulated by the ccTLD. You will also be required to give some proof of residence in the form of a country address or business address.
In the case of .ie domain extensions you will need to prove you have connections in Ireland. Be sure to research additional requirements on the ccTLD of your choice. Hosting.uk has hundreds of ccTLDs but if by chance you need a particular one and it’s not there, go ahead and ask our support team we can check on the availability for you.
A generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD is a unique word or acronym that lets online users locate your site fast. They are descriptive TLDs that identifies your brand like .MEDIA, .STORE, .APP (has a built-in SSL certificate) etc. As more websites flood the internet, and .COM names being exhausted, the need for more descriptive TLDs emerged and gTLDs were conceived. Now you have a greater chance of finding the perfect domain that suits your brand.
