Unlike our shared UK web hosting service, with our UK virtual private
servers, you'll have full root access to the server, so you can install and configure the virtual server exactly the way you want it.
You have full control allowing you to reboot, shutdown and rebuild the VPS at any time of day or night, simply clicking a button in our web based control panel is all that is required.
We also provide a complimentary web based SSH console for every client, so you'll never get blocked by your virtual server firewall rules again!
We ensure that your host node resources are never overloaded, paying particular attention to disk contention.
Farbyte's virtual servers are supplied with lightening fast SSD disk caches, running at 1000MB+ per second for random and sequential disk IO with fair scheduling employed across all VPS.
Our Linux virtual private server hosting ensures that you get a fair share of disk IO resources and aren't adversely effected by other users disk activity.
Unlike many providers, we use only server grade CPU's for our OpenVZ UK VPS, guaranteeing the highest performance and stability.
Every one of our servers utilises server grade 'Error Checking and Correction' RAM (ECC RAM) for increased stability.
Our host servers are all built using high availability RAID systems, reducing the risk of data loss and downtime.
Many other OpenVZ, XEN & KVM providers will oversell & overload the host node, often by 300% and sometimes
This means, for example, that for every 1GB of RAM in the physical server other providers will sell 3GB or more to customers. This policy can have a devastating effect on the performance and reliability of your VPS.
Unlike others, we strive to provide the best UK based virtual private server hosting solutions at great prices.
At Farbyte we never overload our host nodes. Our virtual server nodes
are built using the latest hardware and specifically designed by our engineers to provide industry leading performance with the latest Sandy and Ivy Bridge CPU's.
In addition each physical server is constantly monitored for performance and we are alerted if thresholds are reached. In this case we can upgrade the hardware, before it has any affect on our clients service.
With a 99.9% uptime guarantee and redundant components used throughout our infrastructure, you can
rest assured that your virtual server will enjoy the highest levels of uptime the hosting industry can offer.
Using our state of the art, web based control panel, you can monitor your levels of bandwidth, CPU and RAM consumption from the last hour to the last 12 months! Ensuring that you can plan for any resource upgrades before running low and giving you a detailed view of how your VPS is performing.
For the price, we offer the highest levels of service reliability available in the UK!
All Farbyte's virtual servers are protected by the latest Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), constantly monitoring all incoming and
outgoing network content for intrusion attempts, worms, viruses and other unwanted activity.

In addition server hardening service can be purchased during checkout or at any time in the future for your VPS!
You can rebuild your virtual server, without additional charge, anytime you wish from our selection of Linux templates.
With our web based control panel, you can keep an eye on the statistics for network, CPU and RAM usage.
All our 'unmanaged' VPS come with technical support from the same people that designed the infrastructure, not some 3rd party service designed to
simply provide a 'canned' response to the ticket until a member of staff can look at it.
In the event of clients experiencing technical issue that fall out of our standard 'unmanaged' support, we often provide additional assistance to customers when possible, which our testimonials page vouches for.
Our UK VPS also come with an easy to use web based control panel (SolusVM) allowing clients to reset root passwords,
reboot, rebuild and connect via local console at anytime, without additional charge!
We offer 24 hour technical support for all critical services (e.g. network outages). Non-critical support hours are 09:00-18:00 Monday - Friday and 11:00-15:00 Saturday - Sunday. However, we often also provide support out of these hours, as we are working on infrastructure maintenance, etc.
