If you are considering an upgrade to a VPS but aren't sure if this is the right move for your online presence, consider the benefits of an British VPS from LetsHost below.
VPS accounts are insulated from each other, minimizing the risk of unauthorised access from hackers as well as other customers. The isolation of your account also minimizes the risk of being impacted by a DDOS attack that was intended for someone else.
All of the system resources can be regulated in the VPS environment. Someone else cannot run away with a large share of the resources leaving you without server resources to process your tasks. Therefore your VPS service will run reliably and predictably.
Protected Mail Service
Each VPS account has its own private mail server. This eliminates the risk that your mail service will be blacklisted due to abuses of others sharing the same mail service. This can a common problem on shared hosting services.
Customer Installed Applications
With our VPS you have your own partition and root/administrator access. You have the ability to install applications that we do not offer. Please note that LetsHost do not provide support for customer installed applications. You also must assume the responsibility to update any applications that you install in the event that a security vulnerability is discovered in the version you install.
Some applications require that certain ports and/or protocols be opened or closed in the firewall. With Shared hosting, custom firewall configurations are not advisable due to security reasons, how ever under a VPS structure, custom firewall configurations are feasible because of the partioning between customers. In a Linux VPS, for instance, you could also close ports using the IPTables feature. This will let you open ports that are normally closed, or for more sophisticated firewall needs, choose our Custom Firewall Configuration.
The LetsHost VPS systems allow us to manage your hosting environment (we call it a container). This means that your entire VPS can be restored from backup to any physical server with no changes to your configuration. You can also easily upgrade your service with no downtime!
