Features

Performance, control, and flexibility

Whatever size Windows VPS you choose, and whatever you run on it, valuable features are built in to the platform.

Windows Server OS

Windows Server 2022, 2016, 2012, and 2008 are ready to go when you spin up a new VPS, or you can ask for something more specialised.

First class support

Our in-house support team is always on the job. Engineers are available 24/7 and our average response time is measured in minutes not hours.

Powerful hardware

We select high quality hardware and rigorously test it all for top performance and stability. Fast NVMe storage is standard across our whole product range.

Uncontested performance

Your resources are yours - every SiteHost VPS has its full resources allocated to it at all times. We don't oversell, so what you pay for is what you get.

Administrator access

Every unmanaged VPS comes with full Administrator access, so you can install any packages you need and set them up just how you like.

24/7/365 Server Management

Add optional Server Management and we'll monitor your servers and respond to issues around the clock, so you can sleep well at night (or even take a holiday).

Local servers and NZ service

Host close to local customers, meet data sovereignty standards, rely on our NZ-based support team, and expand to our Sydney location if you need.

SQL Server Web Edition

At $45/month, SQL Server Web Edition is a low-cost option that provides more scalability and features than Express Edition. Suits small or large projects.

Automatic backups

Backups are an essential part of any disaster recovery plan. We'll take a daily backup of your files, and store them securely offsite for 7 days. Only 50c/GB.

Plans & Pricing

It only takes two minutes to provision a new server. If you need a Linux Virtual Server we do those too.

Frequently Asked Questions

A VPS is powerful and configurable, which makes it a good fit for teams with an experienced sysadmin on board. It's also a good option when you require root or administrator access. We have a number of plans to cover almost every size project.
NVMe (non-volatile memory express) is a faster form of data storage. We offer NVMe as standard because we don't think anyone should be slowed down by their hard drive. Technically, NVMe is the transfer protocol for accessing data quickly from a solid-state drives (SSD).
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.
Yes. If you're not happy with your hosting simply cancel it within 7 days and you won't be charged. Note that you will need to provide valid credit card details when you open your account.
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 24/7 Management. You can read more about our uptime guarantee and getting a full SLA in our knowledge base.
