Roberto Tramontano, MediaNote

I really appreciate the great support VPSNINE has given me so far, and I can recommend your company as the best VPS provider I've ever had. (And I've had approximately 12 other VPS providers before you!). I am really impressed with the quick support and service that your company is able to provide to me as a customer. You can expect my full loyalty as a customer as I've decided that I will only and always, from now on, buy my future servers with your company. I thank you again for the great support!

Jordan McQueen, Technical Stop

I have used many hosts that have good prices, adequate customer support and bearably services. This is not the case at VPSNINE, the prices are great, customer support is superb and the quality overall is outstanding.The support has helped me countless times, from installing operating systems to adding domains. If you have not tried VPSNINE, I suggest you do so now because you will be surprised as I cannot find any downfalls to their superb services with great prices.

7 reasons to get reliable fast Linux VPS hosting today

29th May 2015

#1 Easy upgrades of hardware
With our service adding extra RAM, CPU or DISK space does not require a reboot. This makes it easily scalable with zero downtime.

#2 Instant setup
There is no waiting for hardware to be configured to your required specifications and setup usually takes seconds.

#3 Better security
With your own virtual server you have much better security than a shared hosting environment and everything on the server is yours.

#4 Dedicated resources
On our service resources such as CPU, RAM and DISK are dedicated specifically to you, unlike with shared hosting where they are
shared with whoever else happens to be on that server with you. These dedicated resources thus lead to much more
stable and predictable performance for your applications.

#5 Add your own stuff
With full control over your Linux VPS you can install extra items that you require, or customize your web server with your own
extensions. In a shared hosting environment you are restricted to what the host decides to provide.

#6 Your own IP address
You have your very own IP address with your server. This is great for both security and reputation.

#7 Never have to worry about hardware problems as we make sure your instance has a 99.9% uptime.
