Sherweb VPS offers affordable, flexible VPS solutions to businesses looking for stable costs, reliability, and high-end infrastructure that someone else will maintain. A VPS is a great option for business or individual owners of high-traffic websites who are looking to step up from a shared hosting platform – yet aren't ready for the expense or responsibility of a dedicated server.
Sherweb's VPS options allow users to budget foreseeable monthly costs (no maintenance fees!) and take advantage of top-grade equipment. Although you can't actually reach out and touch your VPS, you'll have root access to it, and you can control and configure whatever it contains: software, operating system components, users and more. You're in control – but you're not alone: Sherweb's expert support team are available, 24/7.
Sherweb VPS commits to a 99.9% server availability guarantee.
Basics - What you need to know
SherWeb.com owns and operates a tier-4 data center, which is as good as it gets – it is, frankly, the most robust and costly data center you can have today. The data center is outfitted with redundant systems for power and cooling, with multiple active and fault-tolerant distribution paths. The cabling infrastructure has a redundant backbone, and the facility permits very few, if any, hours of downtime per year.
Sherweb VPS is able to offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee in part because of its redundant power systems.
Access to Sherweb's tier-4 data centre is controlled with biometric readers and single-person entryways. Gaseous fire suppression and redundant cooling systems ensure the center is prepared for any eventuality. Trained security personnel are on hand at all times.

“Just a quick note to say I'm totally impressed already with the service. It's much faster than the previous hosting and my spam has literally disappeared. My iPhone configured first time as per instructions given and again appears to be retrieving email faster, compared to the previous hosted exchange! My only regret is putting up with the previous hosting for so long!”
