We have launched our openvz range of VPS’s located in Sydney, Australia. We believe that VPS’s in Australia shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg and we wanted to offer flexible pricing so that you can pick what resources you need.

Why get a Sydney VPS?

Having a VPS located in Sydney can dramatically increase your response times to the server. What this means if you have a website located in Sydney and your business is solely based within Australia your site users will be able to load your webpages quicker. Also in addition to this if you are running your site content on a CDN like CloudFlare the distance for the cache to be loaded from CloudFlare’s servers in Australiais shorter which means the CloudFlare’s cache will cache quicker from the VPS which means further increase in performance.

If your website is hosted overseas you can benefit from having a node hosted in different regions around the world which offers a laer of redundancy and performance increase, especially if your site is also utilising the CloudFlare network for caching.

Upgrading from shared hosting to a Sydney VPS

If you are currently hosting on a shared hosting environment you may benefit from upgrading to a VPS. This will add a layer of security and make sure other sites traffics hosted on the same server isn’t causing your site to perform less, this is known as the bad neighbourhood effect.

You can run your own applications on a VPS

The primary advantage of running a VPS is the ability to run your own applications and software. For example, if you want to run your own private mail server you have the flexibility to do that. Especially if you want to have control over specific settings and integrate addons into your mail server.
