UK2 Changes the Virtual Hosting Landscape with New VPS Product

London, UK (PRWEB UK) 13 October 2014

Today demonstrated that not all VPSs are made equal. The London-based web hosting company has just launched a next generation SSD VPS, which is faster and more malleable than most other VPSs out there.

The main thing that sets this new VPS product apart from the rest is the fact that it’s built using ground-breaking high performance SSDs or solid state drives. These are faster than standard hard disk drives, which speeds up everything from data reading to writing. The upshot being that customers will experience quicker website loading times and run speeds.

The new SSD VPSs also feature a one gigabit port and a Premium Cisco-powered network with unlimited bandwidth, to further increase performance.

“We’ve developed this high spec SSD VPS as we saw there was a gap for affordable, lightning-fast, website and application hosting,” said Andy Manning,’s brand manager. “It’s likely to tempt those who might previously have opted for a shared hosting solution, as the pricing is now much more comparable.”

UK2’s new SSD VPS is a chameleon of a product as well as a cheetah of one. The OS for this new product can be tailored in lots of ways. Customers can choose from premium templates like Windows or cPanel. Or they can opt for free ones like LAMP stacks or WordPress.

“It’s based on high quality SSD disks so it’s faster than traditional VPSs,” said Andy. “And the infrastructure is the same than that of our highly reliable traditional VPS, so in the truest sense of the phrase, you can now get ‘more for less’.”

The creation of this new SSD VPS is just one in a long line of recent UK2 evolutions. Since January, the web hosting company has been spearheading the sale of the world’s newest web address endings as part of their YearDot campaign. In April, they relaunched their website as part of their quest to make web hosting more accessible and jargon-free.

The new SSD VPS is now available to buy via at Prices start from just £7.50/month.
