VMS - server management

Virtual Managed Servers are for customers, that needs something more, than shared webhosting and Managed server (so called dedicated server) will not be used enough. It's also for customers that don't need or don't want to have complete administration of server in their own hands. Setting of whole server is managed by our experienced administrators.

VMS offers benefits of Managed server, for example server performance is give by chosen package and is reserved directly to our customer, thanks to this VMS cannot be influenced by servers of other customers, how it can be on shared hosting. It has similiar functionality as physical Managed server but it's price is much cheaper. All VMS are stored on highly accessable HyperV-Cluster (for VMS - Windows), where data itself are stored on multinod External data Storage.

Our Customer center replaces applications for server management as is Plesk or cPanel, users that wants this management applications can use VPS solution. Using control panel you can manage on VMS unlimited number of virtual servers, mailboxes and databases.
