VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. This refers to the partitioning of a physical server into multiple servers. In effect, each one acts just like a dedicated server, you get all the features of a dedicated server but at a lower price. Each VPS has its own operating system, and each can be rebooted separately. These operating systems each receive a specific share of the resources of the physical server, no more and no less, they are isolated from each other so that one cannot interfere with another. If one VPS experiences problems or tries to use too much memory or CPU resources, it has no effect on the others.
There are many advantages to selecting a VPS, it costs less than a fully dedicated server and provides a great deal of freedom and flexibility over the limitations and restrictions of shared hosting. You are limited only by the capabilities of the VPS, so select one powerful enough to meet your needs. You can always upgrade later if you decide it becomes necessary.
Since you are supposed to manage your VPS yourself, we recommend you have a good understanding of Linux commands and are familiar with the WHM/cPanel control panel. You can get a VPS without WHM/cPanel, but in this case, you would need to have very advanced knowledge of Linux.
If you don't feel you have the technical expertise necessary to manage your own VPS, there is no need to let that stop you - you can select full management for an additional fee.
You won't have root access, and it will act much like a shared hosting plan, but you will still make the decisions.
cPanel is required if you choose full management for a VPS.
Virtual Private Server is the right choice for developers, webmasters, resellers and simply for those who run resource-intensive websites. We use technology for virtualization, that is why each VPS performs and executes exactly like an independent physical machine and therefore offers security and flexibility for your sites, independence from neighbors, full control over your hosting environment and power of a dedicated server at an affordable price.
With a VPS, you receive all the power of dedicated hosting with the ability to have your own set of services and customizable disk space. With shared hosting, you have limited administrative access and can't customize software configurations, while with a VPS you can perform any actions from your control panel and don't need to contact technical support with every single request.
Since a VPS is functioning like a dedicated server, you can install almost any software products you want. You receive full administrative/root control of your VPS and will be able to set it up as you need, although you would need to consider the physical limitations (disk space, RAM, CPU) of your VPS package.

For unmanaged VPS packages: No, we don't.
We recommend you to set up regular backups for your hosting account using the Backups option in cPanel.
A dedicated server refers to the rental and exclusive use of a computer that includes a Web server , related software, and connection to the Internet. A dedicated server is usually needed for a Web site (or set of related company sites) that may develop a considerable amount of traffic - for example, a site that must handle up to 15 million hit sa day. The server can usually be configured and operated remotely from the client company. Web hosting companies claim that the use of a dedicated server on their premises saves router, Internet connection, security system, and network administration costs.
We do not provide dedicated servers with custom configurations. Therefore, in order to upgrade your current server/add HDD/additional RAM to your server you will need to switch to the next dedicated server plan. You can check the amount of RAM and disk space coming with our server plans here.
In order to upgrade contact our Billing Department. An upgrade from one server plan to another is connected with the content transfer between two physical servers. You can find more information about the transfer fees here.
Our dedicated servers have 1 IP addresses or more. You can request up to 16 additional IP addresses at an additional fee of HKD100/month. To request additional IP addresses please submit a ticket to our Billing Department with your request.
Once your request is received and the IP justification form is approved, the prorated invoice for the IPs will be issued to you (the billing cycle for your dedicated IP will be automatically adjusted to match the current billing period of your hosting plan). After the invoice is paid, the necessary number of IP addresses will be assigned to your dedicated server.
All our dedicated servers already include 100 Mb/s port with the default configuration. To upgrade your port speed, please submit a ticket to our Billing Department.
NOTE: Once the port speed is increased, more data and content will reach the internet at a higher speed, which means a bigger amount of bandwidth will be used. That is why we strongly recommend to order additional bandwidth along with the port speed increase.
To order additional external storage for your managed dedicated server, please submit a ticket to our Billing Department.
A domain name registrar is an organization or commercial entity that manages the reservation of Internet domain names. A domain name registrar must be accredited by a generic top-level domain (gTLD) registry and/or a country code top-level domain (ccTLD) registry. The management is done in accordance with the guidelines of the designated domain name registries.
Complete the following steps with your current registrar
1.Verify contact information: Verify that the administrator's contact information for the domain is correct. All emails regarding the transfer will go to the administrator's email. For .au domains, all transfer information is sent to the registrant contact's email.
2.Unlock the domain name.
3.Cancel Protected or Private registration: If the domain has Protected Registration or Private Registration, you'll need to cancel it.
4.Get an authorization code (also known as an EPP code or transfer key) from your current registrar.
Use your domain for a custom email address.If you register a domain like bacheloretteparties.com, you can set up a personalized email address such as YourName@ bacheloretteparties.com.
Create a website that's attached to your domain.
1. Hire a professional website designer
2. Do it yourself with a content management system (CMS) .
3. Do it yourself with a template-based site builder.
**If domain and hosting is both registered with us just is automatic to connect.**
When your domain name is registered, you need to connect it to your hosting server.
1.You have a hosting plan elsewhere and you were provided with the nameservers for your domain.
2. You have your own server or you were provided with a set of host records to connect the domain to your hosting.
According to the regulations introduced by Internet Corporation of Assigned Names & Numbers (ICANN) starting from January 1, 2014, we are sending Whois verification emails. Whois verification will only be needed for the Registrant contact information for generic TLDs (gTLDs) in the following cases:
-for new registrations.
-for registrant contact information changes on existing domains.
When a new domain is registered, we will immediately send an email to the Registrant email address specified for the domain. The verification email will be also sent if an edit is made to either of the following Registrant contact fields:
-Registrant First Name or Last Name
-Registrant Email Address
