Best value for your money!
Find out the score in a flash:
Share and benefit
The basic principle of a virtual server is that multiple customers
share the hardware of a physical system. This means they all make
joint use of its hardware, including the processor, memory, storage,
Obviously varying numbers of VPS can be set up on a
system like this – it depends entirely on what performance is
required from each individual server.
Good news: Our hardware is so powerful that you can enjoy efficient
performance despite shared resources.
Web hosting vs. virtual servers: How much freedom do you want?
You'll like the fact that a VPS on Potential Server comes with full
root access for administration. Set it up however you choose! Full
root access makes it significantly different to other web hosting
services, where you have less freedom and options.
For example, other types of hosting provide you with far fewer
resources than a virtual server. So if you want to do bigger things,
a VPS will put you on the right track. It also stands out because of
its versatility in terms of possible applications, such as hosting
multiple websites or installing a development environment.
Extra performance included
A further practical benefit is that you can often have your Virtual
Server utilise more performance than is assured by your guaranteed
resources. There is a very simple reason for this: when other
servers on the host system have low performance needs, you can use
the untapped performance temporarily for your own needs.
Hosting experts know that it’s often worth leasing a VPS if
increased server performance is only needed from time to time.
SATA or SSD?
It all depends on what you’re planning.
SSD storage media are
fully electronic and provide significantly higher IOPS performance
than classic mechanical hard drives. This enables more read and
write access per second. More than 10 times as much, in fact, with
the SSDs that we use.
So the decision is clear: a
virtual server with SSD storage is recommended when you have a lot
of input/output operations, e.g. with dynamic websites.
You should choose a server with traditional hard drives
in the host system if you need more storage capacity and your
project has a lower volume of database queries.
