A Virtual Private Server (VPS) with super fast SSD storage gives you power and flexibility without the larger price tag of a managed dedicated server. With a VPS you’re free to customise your hosting to match your sites’ needs and give your visitors a fast, smooth browsing experience from start to finish. All our VPS hosting packages include free hosting management services as standard, along with more comprehensive services with our higher-level management packages.
Tailor your hosting. Scale it up as your business grows or switch packages in minutes. With PHP-FPM 5.4, 5.5, 5.6 & 7 and performance MySQL 5.6 through MariaDB 10.1 included as standard, a Nublue VPS lets you configure your own bespoke server to match your needs – and the dual Nginx and Apache front end means a swift, seamless browser experience every time.
Complex websites need a powerful hosting platform, and that’s where a tailored VPS comes into its own. Our VPS containers give you guaranteed resources and lightning-fast response times – and with custom configuration and an intuitive Plesk 12.5 control panel, you get total control of your own hosting platform to leverage modern, high-performance tech into true high-end sites.

A Nublue VPS gives you a range of advanced developer tools that could make your site development faster and easier. And if any changes don’t go to plan, you can either choose to pay for on-demand site backups, access rotating backups of your entire VPS, or configure your own.

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.
As you’ll have root SSH access you’re really free to customise whatever you like on your VPS, or if you choose a managed VPS we can make customisations for you. From your control panel you (or we) can handle all the key PHP performance variables of your websites, including memory_limit, post_max_size and many more.
You (or we) can also add extra Apache modules, although please note that we won’t provide you with Linux distribution other than CentOS. If you’re unsure about the possibilities of VPS customisation or how to implement them on your sites, just get in touch.
Magento requires a lot of resources, specifically RAM, and without adequate RAM a server running the software 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.
We offer managed hosting on our VPS packages from VPS2 and higher, but this service is not available with our VPS 1 hosting package.
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.
Yes. You can easily create various levels of SSH access to any of your webspaces in the control panel.
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.
Upgrading is a virtually seamless process, usually needing no more than a minute of downtime to complete. You can upgrade to any of our VPS packages to suit your needs – just ask our support team.
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.
