A vCPU is a Virtual Processing Unit. One or more vCPUs are assigned to a Virtual Machine (VM). Each vCPU is seen as a single physical CPU core by your servers operating system. Larger packages include more vCPU’s. The CPU is very often not a limiting factor. In the majority of the used cases the most important factor is how much RAM (memory) is needed. Modern PHP/MySQL scripts often use a lot of RAM, so RAM is very important when deciding on the package you buy.
Each server is deployed with 1 IP address to start with. You can request additional IP’s from us in case you need it. In such a case we charge a small monthly amount in addition.
You can host as many websites as you like on your virtual server, we do not define any limit. You just have to ensure the size of your VPS is always sufficient for the amount of resources your sites use. Your VPS can be upgraded or downgraded at any time to suit the number of sites you intend to host.
Easily login to your customer section, choose the product and click up- or downgrade. Upgrades will be processed immediately, downgrades at the end of the month.
