If you are managing a heavy resource-demanding site with an ever-increasing number of viewers, page hits and downloads, but cannot afford a dedicated web hosting server to handle the expanded load, then take a peek at our cost-effective VPS hosting plan.

The VPS Hosting Service Clarified

A VPS (Virtual Private Server) offers an isolated web hosting environment whereby the entire amount of CPU, RAM memory, data space and bandwidth resources is assigned to you exclusively – as if you were hosted on a dedicated web hosting server.

When you order your virtual private server from Tierra Hosting, you are given the opportunity to choose between two cutting-edge data centers – Steadfast in Chicago, USA, and Pulsant in London, United Kingdom, and we suggest you to pick the one closest to your physical whereabouts, so that you and your website's viewers can be served quicker.

With Tierra Hosting's VPS web hosting servers, you can select an Operating System and install your own software configurations (you get full root privileges). Also, you can reboot your VPS web server at any moment, keep track of the system resource usage and monitor your bandwidth stats in real time. You can choose between OpenVZ and KVM based VPS hosting packages, and if you need help administering your private virtual web hosting server, you can make use of the optional administration services offered by us.

Tierra Hosting Virtual Private Servers – A Web Hosting Solution Tuned to Your Demands

For the sake of customers with data-laden sites, at Tierra Hosting we offer the Memcached memory caching system and the Varnish Cache web accelerator, which will enormously improve your website's speed and decrease the load on the server. It's worth pointing out that Tierra Hosting's VPS hosting plans offer PostgreSQL, InnoDB and NodeJS support, so power users can get all the flexibility and high-level tools they need.
