How our web servers help get you online.
Which server is the best for you?
From low-cost to high-tech, we've got you covered.
So you need a server.
What is that and why do I need it?
At its core, a server is a computer that’s connected to a network. You can then use that server to deliver — or “serve” — files out to multiple people simultaneously. Although you can use servers for lots of things, the most common application is to deliver web pages.
Think of a server like a home for your website. It’s a place where it can live online and it has an address for people to visit. Now what kind of home is it? Well that gets more complicated, but we’ll get to that in a minute.

Going back to our housing analogy, a Dedicated Server is like a private house for your website. This is your hardware, essentially. You’re the only person who uses it, and only your website lives there. And because it’s yours, you can set it up and manage it however you like.
Now if you’re a pro, then you probably know this is what you want. But if you’re new to the server world, you’ll want to get an IT professional to manage it for you. They can set you up in a Linux or Windows environment (your preference) and do everything else you need to deliver your website(s) quickly and effectively.

Not everyone has a dedicated IT professional at their beck and call. And even if you do, the power of a dedicated server might be more than you need. With a VPS (Virtual Private Server), you get a secure and powerful hosting solution built for handling multiple sites and resource-heavy apps. Plus, you can even provision a virtual machine across any continent. If we return to our housing analogy, in this case you’re in a townhome. You’re now sharing your space with a few other people, but you still have a lot of resources at your disposal.
And that’s not all. Every one of our plans include backups, monitoring, patching and security, so you can be confident that your server will run smoothly. Plus, once you buy a plan you can be ready to go in minutes, not days. That’s a benefit you won’t find everywhere else.

When it comes to Business Hosting, you’re dealing with a winning combination. You don’t have to be technically minded, because it comes with a super simple control panel, making it substantially easier to learn than more complex options.
Sounds great, right? It gets better. You also have all of the power and performance of a VPS system. That means you don’t need to learn Linux or command-line programming. Instead, it’s all about ease of use with an incredible amount of power.
