Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose a VPS over shared hosting?

A virtual private server gives you full control of your hosting platform. It costs less than a dedicated server but still lets you tailor your hosting package to your website’s needs – and because it gives you guaranteed resources, you won’t experience any big knock-on effects from other sites when their owners are moving things around. Choose a Nublue VPS and we can even provide you with some advanced customisation too.

What customisations can be made to my VPS?

As you’ll have root SSH access you’re really free to customise whatever you like on your VPS, or we can make customisations for you depending on which hosting management package you choose with your hosting. From your control panel you (or we) can handle all the key PHP performance variables of your website(s), including memory_limit, post_max_size and much more.

Are all your VPS packages suitable for Magento sites?

Magento requires a lot of resources, specifically RAM. Without adequate RAM a server running Magento can become unstable and crash. If you have websites running Magento then we’d recommend choosing our VPS 2 package or higher, which will give you more RAM than our VPS 1 package. Although our VPS 1 package provides the minimum required RAM to support Magento, we recommend VPS 2 as a minimum for best performance.

Is managed hosting available on all your VPS packages?

Yes. Hosting management is free with all of our VPS hosting packages as standard, which gives you features including daily malware scans, full operating system management and 24/7 platform monitoring. With higher-level managed packages on selected server platforms we can provide more comprehensive management services, including direct monitoring, out-of-hours systems admins and expert hosting consultations.

VPS or a dedicated server?

A managed dedicated server creates significant gains in performance for some websites, particularly large ecommerce sites. As a premium option they cost more than a VPS, but deliver the best possible speed and experience for visitors to your site. For smaller or non-ecommerce sites a VPS could well be more cost-effective without sacrificing any noticeable performance. To make sure you make the right choice, please talk to our support team.

Is shell access provided with a Nublue VPS?

Yes. You can easily create various levels of SSH access to any of your web spaces in the control panel.

Is a Nublue virtual private server PCI-DSS compliant?

It can be! Our VPSs aren’t guaranteed to be compliant ‘out of the box’, but we can work with you to achieve PCI-DSS compliance if you need it for a payment gateway on your website.

If I outgrow my current VPS package, how easy is it to upgrade?

Upgrading is a virtually seamless process, usually needing no more than a few moments of downtime to complete while we restart some services to make use of your new resource levels. You can upgrade to any of our VPS packages to suit your needs – just ask our support team.

Do you provide POP or IMAP email services?

We provide both. Choose Nublue for your email and you can decide how you’d like to access your mail service. Setup is hassle-free, and you’ll have email available from the moment you create an account – and the freedom to create as many email accounts as you like.
