What Is Best For Me?

Managed vs Unmanaged

Our unmanaged servers provide you with all the hardware, connectivity and power; it’s up to you to manage your own firewalls and updates. If you’d like our system administrators to help take some of the load off, we recommend going with our managed option. This makes it easier to get started and delivers additional reliability with full daily backups.

Dedicated Servers vs VPS or Shared Hosting

Our shared web hosting and virtual private servers offer excellent cost-efficiency, but if you’re looking for that extra performance punch, as well as additional security and flexibility in your configuration, then dedicated servers are the right choice.
