Our customers consistently rate their support experience as excellent.


Based on the last 200 support ratings we have recieved which are asked for on every ticket. Last updated: Today

When the team working on this website asked us to write a quick message about why we started SiteHost and why we think you should trust your hosting with us we thought it would be impossible to explain in just a few short lines.

Now we know it is. Nothing we write or show you will earn your business or your trust, that takes time. We also won’t promise you 100% uptime or that we will never make a mistake, because sometimes outages happen and can’t be avoided.

Instead, what we can say is that the whole team works hard each day to provide a better hosting experience than you can get anywhere else (that’s why we started SiteHost) and we would love the opportunity to earn your trust the proper way; slowly but surely.

A Quick Overview

Choosing hosting can be tricky and you’ve got better things to do. Let’s cut to the chase and see if a VPS is the right fit for you.

What is a Virtual Private Server?

A VPS provides you with your very own independent virtualised server, running either Linux or Windows, allowing you to have complete control over the configuration of your system. If you want raw resources and the flexibility to do what you want with them it might be just the thing for you.

Who are they a good fit for?

The power and configurability of a VPS is best suited to a team with an experienced sysadmin on board, and when their particular use case requires root or administrator access. We have a number of plans to cover almost every size project but a VPS is not suited to customers unfamiliar with server administration and management.

What are the important features?

  • Command line root access (Linux) or Administrator access (Windows) giving you full control of the server.
  • Running entirely on fast SSD drives for maximum performance, with no overselling of resources.
  • A bare bones install ready for customisation to suit your unique needs.
  • IPv4 and IPv6 support out of the box.
  • No fixed terms, no contracts.

clock 24/7 Management

For any important websites or applications we highly recommend our Managed Hosting. We will monitor your servers and respond to any issues around the clock, so you can focus on what matters.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • 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.

  • What is SSD Storage?

    This is a type of hard drive that is many times faster than old traditional spinning storage. What it means for you is that you get faster, more reliable storage that won't be a bottleneck for your website or application.

  • 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 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.
