Britain-based Virtual Internet began in business back in 1996. It is among a group of globally dispersed hosting providers that specialize in different kinds of hosing. For example, Virtual Internet itself specializes in cloud hosting and dedicated servers, whereas its UK2.net sister company mainly supplies shared hosting solutions. Other brands include 100TB.com, VPS.net, Midphase.com, and Westhost.com.
Virtual Internet’s well-organized website is available in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Virtual Internet offers its cloud hosting services through a modular pricing system that allows you to choose your own set of specifications for the cloud server you require. However, all combinations share the following features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- RAID 10 storage
- Automatic failover
- Cloud security (firewalls)
- Windows and Linux OS
- 24/7 phone support
You can add the user-friendly cPanel control panel to manage your cloud hosting, or vCloud Director instead. Backups can be configured to take place daily or weekly.
Pricing and Support
As already alluded, Virtual Internet lets you configure your own cloud hosting solution to meet your needs, with the final price depending on the storage, RAM, CPU, operating system, and server location you choose. Overall, the package prices are high. When you subscribe with Virtual Internet or any of its sister brands, you get a 30-day money-back guarantee, and you can pay using PayPal or a credit card.
