Features and Ease of Use
BosonVPS can equip your VPS with a wide range of Linux and Windows operating systems, including CentOS, Debian, Fedora, FreeBSD, Gentoo, Linux Mint, Slackware, Ubuntu, Windows 2008, and Windows 2003.
The VPS plans are categorized as Virtual Servers (SSD/HDD Hosting) and Windows Servers (Windows or Forex Hosting). Each category is further subdivided, for example, by server location, and every lowest level category presents you with four plans. Some of the standard features are:
- From 99.9% to 100% guaranteed uptime
- Weekly backups
- SSD storage
- PPTP and OpenVPN
- Reboot and reinstall
- RDP Remote Desktop
- Instant activation
- cPanel or ISPManager (sold separately)
- PHP5, MySQL, PHPMyAdmin
Disk space ranges from 10 GB to 80 GB while RAM varies from 512 MB to 8 GB.
I personally like the plethora of plans that allow you to hone in on exactly what you want, such as a VPS with super-fast SSD storage. However, some customers could find it overwhelming. You needn’t be overwhelmed from a technical perspective because the team of experts will install apps and modules for you.
I’m disappointed that you have to pay extra for the cPanel control panel, but BosonVPS does give you plenty of other freebies such as Lockdown, eAccelerator, Ioncube, PHP, MySQL, SSH, and more.
Pricing and Support
BosonVPS provides several VPS subscriptions (to say the least) with solid uptime and a satisfactory feature set, all at very reasonable Australian dollar prices. You can choose to be billed monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually, with no setup fees. If you’re unsure about signing up for a server, the 14-day money-back guarantee should give you the reassurance of being able to get out if anything goes wrong.
You can contact customer support via live chat, email, or ticket. Unfortunately, live chat was offline when I wanted to try it, and my ticket submission went unanswered. To make matters worse, the knowledge base wasn’t enough to answer my questions:
