VpsCity uses SSD drives in a RAID 10 array for all its web hosting servers. As a result, your website enjoys unmatched performance and speed. Since the company backs this up by a Gigabit network backbone, it makes sure to help you reach your clients quickly irrespective of where they are located.
Thanks to the company’s FTP File Manager, you can easily transfer sensitive files to your website as the drag-and-drop feature helps you to quickly upload and download files to your web space. The company also gives root/administrative access to its VPS clients, thus helping them enjoy full control of their VPS at any level.
VpsCity offers a Server Metrics tool and Bandwidth Usage monitor. With the former, you can track and monitor important server resource usage information (such as memory, CPU, network, load, disk space, sessions and users, uptime, etc.). With the latter, you can get insight into the amount of data flowing across your network.
