What are Semi-Dedicated VPS Servers

Semi-Dedicated servers or as they are otherwise known Virtual Private Servers (VPS), are shared servers with partitioned and allocated resources.

What companies use Semi-Dedicated VPS servers?

Given the dedicated resources, these servers are ideal for heavy workloads and critical infrastructure.

Server configurations are separate in their own right, and given the higher resources available are ideal for:

  • Medium complexity websites
  • Forums
  • Blogs
  • Online stores
  • Sites with higher load and traffic requirements

Should I use UK based servers or UAE based servers?

UAE based semi-dedicated servers will have a lower ping time if your web service users are located in Dubai, Abu Dhabi or the gulf region.

You may also want to consider our UAE servers if you require information compliance with regulatory bodies or your own corporate IT security policies.

Why are UAE based plans more expensive than UK plans?

Compared to the UK, bandwidth and data center costs are more expensive for hosting in the UAE, and this is reflected in the cost of our UAE semi-dedicated server plans.
