UAB “Esnet” (trading as VPSnet) was founded in 2007 to offer flexible hosting solutions at competitive prices. Its long-term experience in the dedicated/VPS market, and its constant push to innovate, make it an attractive proposition for customers who’re looking for a progressive hosting service.

Features and Ease of Use
Unlike some small hosting service providers, whose servers are colocated, this firm owns and operates its own premium hosting equipment at a private facility in Lithuania. Therefore, speed, stability, and quality are the three words that define VPSnet’s load-balanced server solutions that use SSD storage for faster performance.
Some of the key VPS and rental server features are:
- Full root access
- Unlimited traffic
- Various Linux distributions
- Cloud-based servers
- Complete control over resources
- 32 and 64-bit architecture
- 24/7 server monitoring
- Remote server management
- Premium network
- Ability to connect extra hardware
If shared hosting isn’t sufficient for you, but a dedicated server is too expensive, then a cloud-based VPS could be exactly the intermediary solution you need. Not so different from the VPS are the virtual dedicated servers that support KVM virtualization and are cheaper than (dedicated) rental servers. You get more flexibility to install an operating system of your choice (e.g., FreeBSD, CentOS, or Debian) and whatever additional software you want.
VPS setup is free, and activation is fast, but rentals take up to 24 hours to go live. The easy-to-use control panel that lets you manage your resources, including performing regular backups.
Pricing and Support
When you order a VPS, VDS, or a dedicated server, you can pay with one of the 10+ supported payment methods. It’s cheaper to sign up for a year than to renew monthly, and your commitment risk is mitigated by the 30-day money-back guarantee that should get you out if you change your mind within the first month.
Technical support is just phone call away, or you can get an email response within 24 hours, but many people (including me) prefer live chat since it is immediate yet you get a written record of what was discussed:
Self-support resources are disappointing since the FAQ page contains only two entries.

Which VPSnet plan should I get?My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. VPSnet can help you with the migration to a more expensive plan.
