Pickaweb understood our problems from the get-go and recommended a package that would suit us as web designers. We had a VPS spun up in no time and were helped through the entire process. We were offered free migration and had Brad pretty much on stand by whilst we were getting used to our new VPS.

We’ve tested our VPS with various speed testing tools and so far, it’s very quick indeed.

I would recommend Pickaweb and here’s why. It’s not because the server is fast or the response times are quick. It'’s because they listen to us and talk to us like humans. Simple, understandable, and helpful customer service… All we ever wanted.

Customer Testimonials

Excellent Support!

I have been using Pickaweb for many years. I started off with simple shared hosting then ran a dedicated server with them for many years. I changed over to a VPS to reduce costs as I am not currently developing.

I am always pleasantly surprised with the support that I occasionally call upon. They are always helpful and get the job done with minimal fuss.

Great Service!

One of the very best hosting companies about! I decided to look around for a UK hosting company following speed issues with my current provider. From day one I’ve found Pickaweb to be the fastest and just as importantly the most helpful hosting company I’ve ever dealt with.

Problems (generally my end) are dealt with quickly and efficiently I would recommend Pickaweb to anyone looking for fast, efficient and cost effective hosting, what more could you ask for?

David B.

Love the online chat!

I've been hosting with Pickaweb for a few years now. Have dealt with a couple of the pickaweb staff over their online chat, and they have never failed to fix any issues I may have.

Cracking company to get your hosting from.

VPS FAQs

A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a type of hosting account where the data is stored across various servers instead of storing the data on one physical server as with traditional virtual server.

These servers can all share their resources such as processing power, RAM memory & disk space.

With our cheap VPS hosting packages, you will enjoy maximum performance and easy administration tools to help you make the most of your virtual server.

All servers are based in the UK, in state of the art datacentre in London.

There are numerous advantages to a VPS hosting service, the most important being performance, resilience, flexibility, fast set up, lower cost & lower energy use.

  • Performance

    Because you are on a cloud infrastructure your server will have access to the full resources of our cloud. Whether you want extra RAM or CPU our Cloud servers are fast - seriously fast.

  • Resilience & Self Healing = Increased Uptime
    With a traditional virtual server your data is physically stored on one server. A reputable host will ensure that this data is protected & will maximise uptime by building the server with no single point of failure. Typically this will include using a RAID array of “hot swap” disks, dual power supplies, dual processors & network cards as a minimum.
    With a VPS server the data is stored on several servers at the same time so there is minimal impact if an entire server has a hardware failure or if it needs an upgrade. The Cloud software just ensures that the data is available on the other servers whilst the failed component is replaced.

  • Fast Set Up

    A VPS server can be deployed with the operating system & choice of control panel pretty much instantly (less than 1 minute for CentOS with cpanel). No need to wait around for your VPS to be set up. We’re ready when you are!

  • Lower Cost

    If you want performance and the peace of mind that your data is safe & secure then a VPS server is the obvious choice. A traditional dedicated server with all of the performance & security of our Cloud servers will be extremely expensive once you factor in dual power supplies, RAID controllers, extra disks & the rack space.
    For a fraction of the cost you can experience massive power & more security!

  • Lower Energy Use

    From an energy perspective VPS servers are far more energy efficient than traditional dedicated servers. Shared components such as power supplies mean that the energy savings are considerable when compared to a traditional dedicated server.

Maybe you’re a reseller, a developer, a web designer or you run a growing company & you know that you need power, control, flexibility to grow & a low monthly cost with no long term tie in. If that’s you then VPS hosting is the perfect choice.

One of the major advantages over shared hosting is that you have much more freedom over key settings such as PHP & Apache than you would if you were sharing a server with other users.

The real beauty of a Cloud VPS is that you can try it out & experience some serious performance without committing yourself to the higher costs & longer term contract that a high spec dedicated server that offers these features would involve.

We can even manage your virtual server for you if you aren’t comfortable with that type of thing & we’re here for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

In a word; anything.

Maybe you have just one website or eCommerce store & you just want to give it a more powerful platform to ensure you give your visitors the best experience possible.

Or maybe you need to run resource hungry applications that require a more exotic configuration than is offered with a shared hosting service.

Whatever your requirement you can be sure that our VPS hosting packages can handle it.

With a managed VPS we would run all the server maintenance for you, so you do not have to worry.

With an unmanaged VPS you would need to do upgrades yourself.

With our virtual private servers you are in complete control via your control panel. Just login, select the plan that has the resources you want & you can upgrade instantly.

No waiting, no downtime, just instant access to the resources you need.

If you are not technical then you can use our managed VPS service which you can order at any time & for a low monthly fee we will take care of the technical aspects & perform upgrades, security patches, etc. for you.

If you have some technical skills & are able to use SSH & run some basic configuration tasks then you should not have any issues.

Most of our customers will use a control panel such as cPanel which when used with a VPS is managed via the cPanel WHM interface. This is the industry standard, market leading control panel for managing Linux servers.

If you are using cPanel already & you wish to migrate then you can use the cpanel Migration feature.

If you are an existing Pickaweb customer using cPanel or if you are new customer & you are not confident with this type of thing then we do offer a free migration service as long as we can check the files in advance & they are within reasonable limits. Just contact our support team & we will check everything with you before migrating your files.
