Virtual Private Servers

Micron21’s Virtual Private Servers (VPS) are a great and cost-effective way to achieve dedicated resources. You need not worry about “noisy neighbours” on a shared cloud web hosting platform anymore. Based on the Linux KVM platform, our VPS platform provides stability and flexibility for our customers at a reasonable price.

VPS hosting provides a growing business with the best of both worlds: you basically rent your own dedicated ‘slice’ of an existing server!  This means the option is easier and cheaper to set up than dedicated hosting, along with better performance due to increased resources and security than the shared hosting platform.  VPS solutions tend to be highly customisable and scalable.  They provide far greater general control over the server without requiring the hefty price tag and the hassle associated with investing in a dedicated server.  However, if you do have a mission critical application or require a higher level of availability, then consider our VMware cloud servers instead.

What is VPS Hosting?

VPS Hosting (Virtual Private Server) is a way of partitioning a server into multiple servers. The VPS is a simulated server that allows administrators of the service to customise the server for their own requirements and to maximise performance. A VPS provides the same functionality as a dedicated server, but at only a fraction of the cost. When you choose this hosting option, you’ll essentially be opting for the versatile middle-road between the two other most popular choices: Dedicated Hosting and Shared Hosting.

With Dedicated Hosting, you have your own complete server (no partitioning).  However, the process of setting it up can be quite expensive and difficult.  This expense is usually not justified for small and medium sized businesses, as they don't tend to have the need nor budget for such a high amount of dedicated resources and capacity that such a Dedicated Server would be providing.  A much cheaper option is Shared Hosting, however, issues such as security and resources can become a concern due to the fact you are sharing resources with other users that may not necessarily follow best practices in managing their own environment. That's why many businesses choose VPS Hosting.

FAQ's

What locations are the Virtual Private Servers (VPS) hosted at?

Micron21's primary location is our Tier IV Data Centre in Kilsyth South, Victoria.  By default, new instances of VPS will be created here.  We also have the facility to provide VPS at our satellite network locations – in Melbourne's CBD, Sydney's CBD, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, or Singapore if need be.

I have special requirements - will Micron21 be able to accommodate it?

Absolutely!  At Micron21, we specialise in providing solutions for special circumstances. All Operating Systems are supported by our Hypervisor. We support network layouts that less flexible hosting locations simply cannot, and we'll help you plan and implement your application with our support team's expertise.

Does Micron21 provide a fully managed VPS?

Yes. Micron21 provides a range of support options.  There is Business Support for applications that are typically not used outside the usual 9 to 5 grind.  On the other hand, there are 24 hour support options for those businesses that do require all-hours applications.  Our management contract can involve a patch management process that aligns with your needs, as well as experience monitoring of your application during all hours. We also understand that some businesses have the in-house knowledge to operate their own virtual environment, and as such, would never need to contact Micron21 for support, so we are able to provide these services without a support contract if that's the preference. 

How long does it take for a new VPS to be ready?

For a new account, Virtual Private Servers are usually ready the same day after the account creation process has been completed. For existing accounts, a VPS is ready within a few hours, depending on the Operating System installation requirements and any other custom needs (installed software, networking configuration, additional security requirements, etc).
