Frequently Asked Questions

  • How many containers can I have?

    Every server has a finite amount of resources that can be used. That means one container could in theory use all the resources on that server if it gets a lot of traffic, is a complex application or takes up a lot of space. Equally you might be able to fit 20 containers before you run out of resources, it all depends on your usage.

    The number of containers we show on our plans is the absolute maximum number we would recommend on that plan based on average usage we have seen but for you it might be less.

  • What are Docker containers?

    There are some great resources that will explain what Docker is in better detail than we can here, but put simply we view Docker containers as mini servers, or boxes that store applications or websites and everything they need to run.

    For hosting that makes websites more portable and far more flexible. Docker containers can be moved around easily without worrying about missing something the website needs to run, plus you can customise your environment for each container, rather than the whole server.

  • Do you offer a free trial?

    Yes. If you're not happy with your hosting simply cancel it within 7 days and you won't be charged. Do note however that we require a credit card to be associated with accounts on sign up.

  • Do I need server management?

    We highly recommend opting for Server Management if your server will be hosting critical applications or websites where uptime is important. Problems arise, downtime happens. You should consider who would respond at 3am if there's an urgent problem, especially if you don't have your own dedicated system engineers.

  • Do you have a Service Level Agreement?

    We have an uptime guarantee of 99.9% across our Cloud Container, VPS and VDS platforms. We also offer comprehensive SLAs as part of our Managed Hosting. You can read more about our uptime guarantee and getting a full SLA in our knowledge base.

Cloud Containers Explained

Learn how Cloud Containers work in 2 minutes and see how they can benefit you.

What are Cloud Containers?


Cloud Containers offer a huge amount of control for developers while still being incredibly easy to use if you just want to set and forget your cloud hosting.

Making use of technologies like Docker, you can have a container for each individual website or application, all on your own private server. This makes your hosting far more flexible by allowing each container to run different software or services, depending on your needs, without interfering with each other. For example you could have a website running Node.js and another on PHP, independently, in just a few clicks.

Cloud Containers are proven to be an easy, flexible and powerful hosting option. With customers already hosting CMSs like Craft CMS, Silverstripe, WordPress and more on Cloud Containers, we know your sites will be fast, secure and scalable. On top of that, enjoy features like Free Auto SSL, Cloning and an easy to use control panel to manage your websites, containers and databases.
