How do Snapshots work?
Our High-Performance VPS series offers you the possibility to create so-called “Snapshots” of your system. This means that the current state of your system is saved and stored. This is a useful tool that allows you to run risk-free updates of apps or install new software on your system. In case you encounter any issues afterward, you can easily “roll back” your system to its previous state. You can perform a Snapshot yourself through your flashhost Customer Control Panel by clicking the “Create Snapshot” button. If you want to reset your system at a later point in time, simply click the “Rollback”-icon. You can find more information in our tutorial on the Snapshot Feature for the VPS.
Can I virtualize my VPS?
No, our Virtual Private Servers do not support nested virtualization. Should you need to run your own virtual machines, you can order one of our Dedicated Servers or our Virtual Dedicated Servers.
What is the difference between Storage VPS and High-Performance VPS?
When you opt for a Storage VPS you get a virtual server with a standard hard disk (HDD) and an additional SSD boost. Consequently, you receive a lot of Storage space for your data and at the same time, the SSD boost ensures that your VPS Operating System works faster. Compared to ordinary VPS without SSD, our servers offer you much quicker access to your data.
In our High-Performance VPS series, we only use the latest solid-state drives (SSDs), which are much faster than standard hard disks (HDDs). As a result, the performance of your VPS increases significantly since Operating System and all your data is stored on SSDs only and can be handled with a much better read-write speed.
Can I change the specification of my VPS?
You can select one of the models available on our website. Beyond that, the hardware specifications of our VPS cannot be customized or changed. Should you need a custom configuration consider a Virtual Dedicated Server or Dedicated Server.
Can I upgrade to a different VPS plan later?
Yes, you can easily upgrade to a bigger VPS plan through your flashhost Customer Control Panel. Simply go to the administration of your VPS, click on “Manage” and select “Upgrade VPS” from the drop-down menu. The next steps are explained there in detail. Should you wish to switch to a smaller plan, we recommend purchasing it through your Customer Control Panel, transfer all data from your existing VPS to it and then mark your VPS for cancellation. In case you need assistance with this process, kindly get in touch with our Customer Support Department.
Which Operating Systems are available for my VPS?
At flashhost, the choice is yours: Select from a wide range of popular Linux distributions (CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, and many others) and Windows Server. Since we do not believe in offering pre-configured bundles but let you configure your server according to your needs, the Windows license fee is added to your monthly VPS fee only if you choose this Operating System. The amount charged depends on the size of your VPS.
Do you offer Control Panels for easy administration of my VPS?
Yes, we offer cPanel and Plesk admin panels at extra cost, as well as Webmin which is available free of charge. At flashhost, we exclusively offer you to try Plesk one month for free with our VPS, Virtual Dedicated Servers and Dedicated Servers! Should it not suit your needs, simply cancel it before the end of the first month through your Customer Control Panel and there will be no fee charged for it!
Our comparison of administration panels gives some more information and could possibly help you to take a decision.
You can order your preferred panel directly with your VPS or later by contacting our customer support via e-mail.
