VPS is short for Virtual Private Server. It is a server that's split into a small number of VMs (virtual machines). Each VPS is entirely private and functions the same as a dedicated server. The resources of a dedicated server are divided between each VPS; therefore, running a VPS is cheaper than owning a server. Each VPS has its own dedicated resource.
Your Managed VPS will run AlmaLinux OS - an open-source enterprise Linux distribution, created by the developers of CloudLinux.

What do our customers think?
We've nattered on about why we think we're the best host for your new virtual server, so we'll let our customers take it from here.
Simply have supplied us with fantastic product and customer support for many years now. Their network is fast and rock solid reliable and support tickets always get a fast response from staff who clearly know their stuff. They have surpassed my expectations on customer support a few times now. If you need a server, at a great price and with fantastic support then just stop looking, you're going to be VERY happy.
Absolutely outstanding service! The best hosting company out there. I just love it! Super cheap & super fast dedicated servers! I have tested over 20 different hosting companies and most of them provide very poor customer service, high prices or limited configuration/ access. With Simply I finally have what I have been looking for - high performance dedicated server, nginx php-fpm apc = pure awesomeness!
I have been using Simply services for almost 4 years now and I can tell you that it is a first class service. They are good and fast with the setup, with the changes, with the urgencies, and the ratio price/quality is the best. I use Simply for sites that are visited from Latin America mostly and the connectivity is so good that there are no differences in speed with the local providers who are way more expensive.
Frequently asked questions about Managed VPS Hosting
What is VPS?
What's the difference between a Managed VPS and a Self-managed VPS?
With a Managed VPS, the management of the VPS is taken care of by your hosting provider – this includes all server responsibilities and maintenance tasks, from setting up your server to daily monitoring and maintenance.
On the other hand, with a self-managed VPS, your hosting provider will only take care of the connectivity to the VPS and ensure it is available online. If there are any node hardware issues, your VPS hosting provider will resolve them. All other VPS maintenance tasks are your responsibility.
How do I upgrade my VPS?
We'll manage the upgrade for you – just let us know which VPS you'd like to upgrade to via your Customer Portal or call us on 0333 247 0222 and we'll handle the rest.
Will I get root access to my Managed VPS?
Root access is not supplied with our Managed VPS range; however, check out our self-managed VPS hosting solutions if this is something you need.
