Our VPS provide a low-cost entry into the world of servers. The VPS are based on KVM and are set up on host systems with up-to-date and reliable hardware. A variety of current Linux and Windows operating systems can be installed on the VPS. Many of the offered operating systems also support administration panels like Plesk or WHM/cPanel. With the help of those administration panels, websites, e-mails and much more can be managed easily and quickly.
Each customer also receives root access or administrator rights on his VPS and can therefore install any desired software. This enables a variety of possible applications.
Currently we offer seven different VPS models, three with HDD + SSD boosted storage and four with 100% SSD storage. If the allocated resources of the VPS are no longer sufficient in the future, your VPS can be upgraded to a larger model at any time.
Here you can find our currently offered VPS.
Dedicated servers are ideal for larger projects that require a lot of computing power. They can be easily adapted to individual requirements and needs and are particularly suitable for software development, database applications or virtualization. Dedicated servers can also be connected to an internal network that enables fast local data exchange between several servers.
Likewise, as above for the VPS, you can choose from a variety of current Linux and Windows operating systems with compatible administration panels. In addition, some virtualization operating systems such as Proxmox and XenServer can also be installed, which are ideal for creating and managing your own virtual machines.
Dedicated servers are also suitable for hosting game servers or VoIP applications, as the performance of the server is dedicated.
We currently offer six different dedicated servers that cover the complete performance range.
Our currently offered Dedicated Server models are just one click away!
