VIRTUAL PRIVATE SERVERS

VPS hosting platform with maximum speed & stability

Enterprise SSD Storage

We only use enterprise-level Samsung SSDs to give you the best speed, capacity and endurance. These are configured as local storage in our virtual private servers, meaning that they’re optimised for high performance.

Instant Provisioning

Our super-fast automatic provisioning system will have a Linux VPS online in less than a minute and a Windows VPS in under 5 minutes. If you ever need to upgrade, our control panel makes it effortless.

Latest Technology

All virtual machines are powered by 2.2 GHz Intel Xeon Cascade Lake 12-core processors, with access to DDR4 2666 MHz ECC-registered RAM. Combining your VMs with enterprise-class SSDs gives you maximum CPU power to serve demanding modern apps.

Do I need a VPS?

If you want the control and options of a dedicated server, but with the affordability of shared
hosting, then a VPS is for you. They’re recommended for those who want to host both
websites and apps.

Freedom and independence

Install what you want, when you want. Our advanced hardware – with guaranteed resources always available – gives you the headroom to run powerful modern applications. They’re perfect for business, gaming or communications.

Secure and resilient

Your VPS is partitioned from others and is as secure as a physical dedicated server. It’s in a physically-secure UK data centre with an uninterruptible power supply – so you can rely on it always being available. Our 1 Tbps anti-DDoS protection will cover you against denial of service attacks.

Compelling business case

If you run a business, it’s reassuring to have guaranteed compute and storage resources available. Simply spin-up a low-cost VM whenever you need it. A Acorn Web Hosting VPS gives businesses the power of having a dedicated server, without the capital expense and worries of having your own hardware. It becomes an operational expense, like a utility.

Snapshot Backups

While our virtual private servers have a 99.99% uptime guarantee, there are still ways that a disaster may strike. For example, someone (not you – of course!) might miss a security update and your VPS could become a victim of malware.

So it’s still important to back up your VPS regularly. You can do this easily from the MyAcorn Web Hosting control panel. But what if you forget..?

Our Snapshot Backup service automatically creates full backups of your virtual machines, apps and storage. You can set an automatic snapshot to take place on a daily, weekly or fortnightly basis.

VPS: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Find answers to some frequently asked questions about VPS:
By default, a Self-Managed VPS won’t come with a control panel to manage your sites or applications, but you can install one. Our range of Managed VPS come with the bespoke MyAcorn Web Hosting control panel which is perfect for managing your VPS and websites. You can also order cPanel for your Self-Managed VPS.
We manage the hardware and network that the VPS uses. We don’t manage the security, software or updates on the VPS itself – that will be your responsibility. We’d recommend a Self-Managed VPS if you’re confident with server management. If you require technical support and advice, then we’d recommend one of our Managed VPS.
Absolutely. A VPS can be upgraded at any time. There’s no downtime when upgrading and it’s as simple as a click of a button from your VPS management area.
With a Self-Managed VPS you’re free to install any software you like, there are no restrictions. Choose from a range of operating systems as well as our choice of one-click applications to get up-and-running quickly.
Each VPS comes with one free dedicated IP address. If you need more IP addresses, these can be purchased from within your VPS management area.
