Our Plans are designed for small businesses to mainstream servers that require processing power for applications or databases. Include the standard 99.9% up time guarantee, 24x7x365 technical support with a 30mins average response time and a 30 day money back guarantee.

Server Management

While a "do-it-yourself" server usually provides you with a cheaper line item, you are also responsible for updating and patching your server every step of the way. We offer both fully-managed and semi-managed VPS plans in order to best meet your needs. Our semi-managed plans do not include a hosting control panel, but do include our assistance with any hardware, operating system, or basic configuration issues. Our fully-managed plans include our assistance with just about any issue or configuration request you may have, outside of custom software/script installations.

High-Availability

Our VPS Hosting plans all come with a high-availability feature that essentially takes your VPS container, and empowers it with a cloud infrastructure. How does this work? We put a premium on your server's uptime, so we created an infrastructure of redundant hardware clusters that provides your partition with real-time redundancy. If for some reason there is an error on your server, there is another server in the cluster with that backup information ready to spin up. We utilise Virtuozzo, a virtualisation solution built on top of OpenVZ.

Max Speed Zones

We have data centres in New Zealand & Australia and allow you to choose which data centre is closer to your physical location and customer base. These data centres serve our customers around the world and includes service from premium bandwidth providers and advanced routing technology to ensure your sites are served quickly.

Cutting Edge Hardware

Our VPS is completely Customisable and can be upgraded any time as your site grows. Full root access allows you total control, as well as the ability to install advanced software and completely customise your hosting environment. It truly is dedicated functionality without the expense.

Live-State Snapshots

Change is a good thing. Unfortunately, when you are making big changes to your site or application, there is always room for error. Live-state snapshots takes the idea of a "backup" and takes it forward to its next logical step. Taking a snapshot of your partition not only creates a backup of your files, but also all of the processes running in the background at that instant in time. This way, if you make an error or break something while making updates, you can revert your partition to that exact snapshot, providing a working, fail-safe rollback.

Solid-State Drives (SSD)

One of our top VPS Hosting features is that all of our servers utilise solid-state drives (SSDs), which provide increased performance over standard hard disk drives (HDDs). Our SSD servers perform up to 20x faster than older generation HDD servers, giving you faster read/write speeds and faster delivery of your content to your end users.

Processors

Customise your VPS servers with high performing processors that can enable your workloads to run faster and more efficiently while lowering overall cost of ownership. Configure your 2U or 4U server with up to four processors to deliver high performance for diverse workloads.

Memory

Add up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM during initial deployment, or increase memory capacity during the life of your server to meet your business growth. With next generation DDR4 memory support, your overall memory bandwidth increases and is Optimised for your workloads.

SSH and Root Access

Upon purchase, you can request Secure Shell (SSH) and root access to your VPS container. If you are familiar with these technologies, you can utilise the administrative access to securely access your server and make changes using command-line. Root access allows you to install and configure server-wide applications, quickly edit files and much more.

Full cPanel License

Optionally you can include cPanel/WHM license with our VPS Hosting plans, allowing you to use the industry-leading control panel to manage and organize your files, addon domains, email addresses and more.

Encryption

AES-256 Disk Safe Encryption can be enabled at the time of creation of Disk Safes for backup data. This aids in the protection of data stored in the backup server, and in protection of the data over the network so there is no need to use external encryption suites.

Web-Based Interface

Manage servers with one web-based enterprise console. Browse and restore files instantly across all server backups using an Explorer-style interface.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a VPS?

A Virtual Private Server (sometimes referred to as a VPS or Virtual Server) is a physical server that has been partitioned into multiple virtual servers, each operate as if they were their own dedicated machine. Each VPS can be independently re-booted and the virtualisation software allows each virtual server to run its own copy of the operating system with superuser-level access to install almost any application.

What are the advantages of a VPS?

A VPS gives you the features and functionality of a dedicated server without the cost of building and maintaining one. If you need to host unlimited domains, have complete control of your environment and/or run your own applications, then you will benefit from having a VPS. In addition, a VPS provides the ability to manage your dedicated environment directly through SSH or Remote Desktop Connection.

What hardware specifications does your VPS's run on?

VpsCity's hardware nodes run on HP and Dell Enterprise Servers with 8 or 16 core Intel Xeon E5 processors and SSD RAID hardware arrays. SSD RAID provides disk I/O in excess of 1.2GB/s performance. Each hardware node contains up to 1TB of memory.

Will my VPS be backed up?

If you require your Virtual Private Server to be backed up, we strongly urge you to subscribe to the service during the checkout process. We offer an extremely customisable backup program that is very affordable.

What operating systems do you support?

Virtual Private Servers are full virtualisation servers so you are able to install most operating systems from windows to BSD. Think of Cloud Servers as dedicated servers with some added benefits.

How long does it take to setup your VPS's?

After you have ordered your Virtual Private Server and paid for it, it will be running within 30 seconds, ready for your use.

What software can I install on your VPS's?

As Virtual Private Servers operate like real dedicated servers there are no limitations to the applications that can be installed. The Cloud Server has full kernel level access and is not limited in any way, however some the following content is prohibited on our Cloud Servers: pirated software, hacking sites programs or archives, distribution of music files or any other material in which the user does not own the copyright, any other material deemed illegal by New Zealand law.

Are game servers allowed?

Due to the nature of game servers and the unfortunate ability they have to attract DoS attacks, we unfortunately do not allow them on our network. We provide a predominant corporate network with many businesses running services and can not afford the disruption that DoS attacks bring due to gaming servers.

What is the difference between container based virtualisation and hypervisor virtualisation?

Hypervisor virtualisation mechanism emulates the hardware, you can run any operating system on top of any other, Windows on Linux, or the other way around. Both the guest operating system and the host operating system run with their own kernel.
Containers are the products of operating system virtualisation. They provide a lightweight virtual environment that groups and isolates a set of processes and resources such as memory, CPU, disk, etc., from the host and any other containers.
