Business Pro and VPS
What's the Difference between normal hosting and VPS Hosting?
What will the hostname be for my VPS?
The host name of your VPS is totally up to you. When you purchase the server you may well buy a new domain name, or transfer an existing one to us. After this, when you start to configure your server options you will be asked to assign the host name. Most customers use subdomains such as server1.chosendomain.com or alpha.chosendomain.com. These sub domains are up to you. Your name servers will often share the same domain as your host name meaning they would be ns1.chosendomain.com and ns2.chosendomain.com.
Can I host adult content on my VPS?
You would be surprised how often we get asked this. No, Hipposerve has a very strict, zero tolerance adult hosting policy. We do not allow any content that could be considered adult or X rated. Please check your Acceptable Use Policy for full details of prohibited content.
What happens if I use up all my disk space?
As you run out of disk space your VPS will not be able to complete all it’s tasks properly and you will start to get errors. All of our VPS hosting packages allow you to instantly upgrade from inside our interface. If you’re on our largest solution, please contact us and we will sort out the best solution for your needs.
Do you offer a back up service
Yes. During the sign-up process you’ll be able to order back up services for your server. We will automatically back up everything once a day and these can be restored by contacting our support team, who can get you up and running. If you do not choose a backup option, it is up to you to secure your data.
Does my VPS come with SSH access?
How Many Websites can I Host on my VPS?
You can host as many as your resources will handle! From our experience, 50,000 daily unique visitors on WordPress won’t cross a 2.5 load with 32GB of RAM.
