A Hybrid Server is a virtual server with guaranteed RAM, dedicated hard disks and your own dedicated 100Mbps network connection for impressive all-round performance.

Bridging the gap between VPS and dedicated servers, a Hybrid Server is an affordable and powerful hosting solution suitable for a wide range of applications.

Choose your OS

Various operating systems are available, including Ubuntu 12 LTS, CentOS, Debian, OpenSUSE, FreeBSD and NetBSD for Linux users. Windows users can choose Windows Server 2008 R2 (Web & Standard) or Windows Server 2012 R2.

Rocket icon

KVM virtualisation

KVM is a hypervisor that integrates deeply with the host OS, ensuring that your Hybrid Server can use the hardware to its maximum potential regardless of whether it’s running Linux, Windows or UNIX.

Mouse icon

CentO icon

CentOS

CentOS is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, so you can rest assured that it has been tested extensively and is suitable for businesses and websites of all sizes. Installing CentOS 6 also gives you access to our time-saving one-click installs of popular applications such as WordPress, Magento and Minecraft.

Ubuntu icon

Ubuntu

If you run Ubuntu on your computer at home, then an Ubuntu virtual server is a logical step to take as the web version is similar to that on your local machine. Easy for newcomers to Linux to pick up, Ubuntu is one of the most popular Linux operating systems and there are plenty of support communities online if you need help.

Windows Server icon

Windows Server 2008 & 2012

Our Hybrid Servers are available with Windows Server 2008 R2 technology (web and standard editions available) and Windows Server 2012 R2, making them ideal for designers and developers using MS SQL, ASP.NET and .NET.

Debian is a versatile yet stable operating system which is highly regarded by the Linux security community. Using Debian as your OS gives you the freedom to explore a wide range of frameworks and develop for a wide range of applications.

Fedora icon

Fedora

If you’re looking to be more experimental, a Fedora virtual server will meet your hosting needs. Although it’s very similar to Red Hat and CentOS in nature, Fedora allows you to use cutting-edge software releases, opening up more opportunities for experimenting.

OpenSUSE icon

OpenSUSE

An OpenSUSE server creates a stable environment for hosting your websites and projects. As well as being user-friendly, OpenSUSE prioritises collaboration features and easy to use development and packaging processes, making it a great solution for application developers and group projects.

Frequently asked questions

Find quick answers to the most commonly asked questions

1. What are Hybrid Servers?

They mix the affordability and scalability of a Virtual Private Server (VPS) with the performance of a Dedicated Server. With dedicated RAM and hard disk drives with hardware RAID, Hybrid Servers also share CPU resources with the host’s other users at a much lower contention ratio than VPS users.

Return to questions

2. What can I use my Hybrid Server for?

We place no restrictions on what you use it for. As long as anything you do abides with UK law, you are free to use your server for any purpose.

Return to questions

3. What is your SLA?

All our Hybrid Servers come with a 99.99% uptime service level agreement. We aim to fix any network issues within 4 hours, and if your hardware is identified as the cause of any downtime, it will be replaced within 2 hours of the diagnosis.

Return to questions

4. What are the benefits of having my own dedicated hard disk drive?

Servers using their own dedicated HDD are faster, more efficient, and allow for much more control than shared hosting options. You automatically have root administrative access to your Hybrid Server, allowing you to set up it up exactly as you need it to be.
