Chances are you understand what shared hosting is, but you need more flexibility, more control and frankly do not want to share. So your next step is to get your own dedicated hosting environment. Red Cactus virtual private servers (VPS) run on Microsoft Hyper-V in the biggest data centres in South Africa.

This means you get full access to enterprise hosting with unlimited growth potential, blistering speed and proven 99.99% uptime!

A Virtual Private Server runs its own copy of an operating system and customers have super user-level access to that operating system instance so they can install any software that runs on that OS. You are welcome to upgrade or downgrade at any time!
