It is extremely important that when you are looking to purchase a VPS, you make sure that it is easy for the provider to scale up your RAM, HDD or number of cores. This allows you to then modify the resources in realtime so that your website or application can run smoothly when it grows.
Here at Ezee all it takes a simple ticket request and we can tweak your resources to whatever you think may be required. We can also advise on this looking at your usage.

We have added the most common questions and explanations of what a VPS is and how it can be applied to help with your business or personal projects.
VPS is an acronym that means ‘Virtual Private Server’. A private server, as you might expect is one that is exclusively yours. If you buy VPS UK based services, you give yourself a certain amount of resources that are not shared with anyone else. It’s similar to having your own dedicated server, but it is entirely virtual.
By ‘virtual’, we mean that it is actually a partition on a physical server that is reserved entirely for you. With this virtual server, you can gain root access, install the Operating System that works best for you and get to work on projects with total freedom.
All the back-end business is handled by us. We manage the physical servers, offer speed guarantees and provide maximum uptime and stability. Meanwhile, you are freed up to focus entirely on your work.
These two types of service have some similarities, but they are fundamentally different. With a VPS, you can create multiple instances on one dedicated server. A Virtual Dedicated Server will offer the same thing, but it takes up the server in its entirety.
The bottom line is that VPS hosting is a much more cost-effective option for large projects. It grants a significant amount of dedicated resources and ultimate control without the exorbitant costs of having your own physical dedicated server.
There are several things that make VPS hosting the best solution for specific projects. In a nutshell, when a large number of resources are needed alongside superb stability, VPS hosting is the answer. Let’s explore that in a little more detail.
At its core, VPS hosting provides you with dedicated resources. What this means is that your CPU power, RAM and disk space are not shared with any other users. You are allocated with a set amount that you are free to have full control over.
By its very nature, VPS hosting guarantees stability. All the resources are carefully, professionally managed and allocated to users, so you get the peace of mind of knowing that high traffic will have no impact on your server’s performance.
Finally, the most prized advantage of VPS hosting is that you have root access and total control over the resources you are allocated. A wide range of operating systems is available to install and you can work on resource-heavy projects that simply wouldn’t be possible with shared hosting. Be advised, however, that you are responsible for the things you choose to use your resources for - customer support can only assist with matters relating to managing your VPS hosting and other back-end queries.
Cloud computing is a 21st-Century method of using resources that are made available through a network of interlinked, remote servers. In the past, a single machine would be the only option people had, but cloud computing leverages high-speed internet and state-of-the-art software to compute a range of demanding applications with superb efficiency.
This method of computing can manage, process and store data just the same as a regular server. However, you can access these resources from any device, no matter where you are. There are significant advantages to cloud computing - it is extremely flexible, infinitely scalable, highly resilient and it makes migration seamless.
Again, there are some similarities between VPS and Shared Hosting, but there are some crucial differences.
A shared hosting package is typically aimed at small projects, like a personal blog. If your project is more resource-intensive or experiences high traffic, a shared hosting service may not provide the computing power to meet those needs. Shared hosting is a great solution for beginners and it is fully managed. This means that customer support teams are on hand to help out with a wide range of issues that may occur.
VPS hosting provides dedicated resources that you don’t share with anyone else. Every VPS hosting package is aimed at ensuring you get maximum control over the resources allocated to you. Things like CPUs, Burst RAM, the OS you use and the management of root access are all in your hands. The only downside is that, whilst the VPS hosting provider will cover the back-end and monitoring/maintenance of the server, we can only provide limited help when it comes to customer support. We can help with VPS hosting control panel queries, but programming, coding and other such issues are not things we can advise on.
VPS hosting is the better solution for users with more technical knowledge and skill. If you are only looking to build a small website, a shared hosting package or premium hosting is probably a better option for you.
If, on the other hand, you require extensive computing power and greater control then VPS is the best cost-effective alternative to a dedicated server. Complex, high-traffic websites, web apps, online gaming servers, databases and other large-scale projects are ideal for a VPS hosting package. No other service offers as much control as VPS hosting, because you can leverage root access and install any OS you choose.
A VPS hosting service is semi-managed. This means that with certain issues you will need to research knowledge bases and tutorials rather than seek help from customer support.
No solution offers greater control over your experience than VPS hosting. To be able to take full advantage of the power at your disposal, some technical knowledge will be required.
The customer support team will always do their utmost to help with the queries customers have. Any question relating to the back-end or control panel will always be answered. If, however, you encounter problems with your project at the front-end, customer support will not be able to help.
It’s valid to be concerned that with multiple users on a single dedicated server, each running their own private servers, other users may be able to access your data. We can assure you that this is not possible. All VPS hosting servers are safely partitioned by specialist software which guarantees flawless protection.
Every VPS hosting plan provides the user with a dedicated IP address.
In a word: yes. This is the strength of a VPS hosting package - you get complete control over your project. There are literally dozens of Linux-based operating systems available to suit your needs.
The best time to start using VPS hosting is when you have amassed sufficient technical knowledge for the endeavour. Alternatively, when your project exceeds the limitations of your shared hosting account, it may be time to think about going bigger.
Yes it is. We have various plans designed to fit any type of project. As you grow, you can seamlessly upgrade to a more powerful plan with no downtime to worry about.
