All our host servers are running Intel i7 quad-core processors, DDR3 RAM and RAID-1 redundancy. We make use of world-class South African data centres offering environmental control, redundant UPS's / backup generators / Internet connections and the best physical security.
Our hardware and hosting providers afford us the ability to provide you with a 99.5% uptime guarantee. Should we fail to live up to this promise, we will credit your account with 50% of the base hosting amount. As always, planned maintenance by either SpinUp or our service providers does not count towards the downtime total.
Here is why we are so confident:
Our network provider has a 99.9% uptime SLA, which means a maximum of 43 minutes of downtime per month.
Our hardware provider supplies us with a 90 minute turn-around time on any hardware repairs and/or replacements.
Why a VPS over a dedicated server?
- Out-of-band recovery / maintenance console
- Remote Reboot / Shutdown / Power-on
- Bandwidth usage statistics
Why a VPS over shared web hosting?
Ever wanted to make use of a different control panel or needed a different software version to run your website effectively. What if you wanted to run Postgres but your shared hosting provider only supplies MySQL? Traditionally, if you required any of these "features" you would need to search for a compatible shared web hosting supplier, change your website to suite their requirements or go the costly route of hosting your own dedicated server.
A VPS removes these limitations.
