VPS Hosting Servers Pricing

UK2’s VPS cloud servers can be up and running on either Windows or Linux within a few minutes and are provided with automatic failover, which means that website data will stay online no matter what hardware failure might occur as client data is instantly transferred to a live machine without any disruption.

The VPS is provided on the VPS Cloud option or the SSD VPS. The VPS Cloud option is provided with toggle switches for CPU, RAM and HDD, however there are recommended presets, UKV100, UKV200, UKV400 and UKV800. CPU is available from 1GHz up to 12GHz, RAM is available from 256MB up to 10GB and HDD is available from 50GB up to 160GB. When it comes to the SSD VPS options, solid state drives are made to provide read and write commands instantaneously, therefore providing a much faster environment and so this is best for those clients who want the VPS but with a touch of speed.

The plans available are VPS1GB which UK2 says is ideal for simple websites and small test environments, VPS2GB which is best for WordPress, Drupal, forums and medium sized web shops, VPS4GB suited to busy websites, forums and hosting control panels, VPS8GB which is best for complex web apps, forums and busy web shops and VPS16GB, similarly suitable for the latter.
