Virtual private servers – FAQ

If you decide on one of our VPS packages, you'll have access to an operating environment that is tailored to your application or software needs. You'll be able to install any apps yourself in no time, via root access. Typical use cases include:

  • Web server
  • Mail server
  • Shop server
  • Development server

An IONOS VPS is suitable for private and professional use.

Having your own web server gives you the opportunity to realise a wide range of web-based projects, big and small. Which operating system suits you best is a question of personal preference.

If an intuitive user interface for your server is important to you, we recommend the Windows server operating system. The popular operating system’s familiar design ensures an effortless server setup.

If you're looking for a more affordable option, a Linux VPS package is a good alternative. It's an open-source operating system, so there are no licensing fees. Linux is also considered to be a secure operating system with a comparatively small attack surface. Additionally, Linux forms part of the widely used LAMP stack (Linux Apache, MySQL, PHP), which underpins countless web applications.

Virtual servers and cloud servers are similar in that they both have a virtualised infrastructure. However, there are differences in their technology and functionality. Virtual servers are typically physical servers that house CPU, RAM, and storage drives, while cloud infrastructures consist of compute and storage nodes, which are separate, individual components that have been cloudified. IONOS virtual servers use the same technological platform as the IONOS Cloud, but they have a slightly reduced feature set.

A virtualised server combines physical hardware that is broken down into separate systems with the help of software. These servers can then be used and shared by several users. In fact, the resources available in the actual server (CPU, RAM, and memory) are divided.

A dedicated server is yours alone to use. Comparable to a laptop or a home PC, the installed resources / components / hardware (CPU cores, RAM, memory, network access, etc.) are used exclusively by one person.

You can see all details of the scope of support in this Help Centre article.

It usually only takes a few minutes to set up a server. However, larger servers (equipped with memory-intensive operating systems) may take longer to install.

You can access your server in the following ways:

  • Linux VPS: via an **SSH **encrypted connection
  • Windows VPS: via RDP

If any problems occur with the network or firewall, a KVM console is also available in the cloud panel to help ensure access.

Yes, after server setup you'll have access to the central administration panel (Cloud Panel), where you can easily manage your server's settings and features.

With root access to your server included in your administrative rights, you'll have total control over your systems, services and network.

Once you've finished setting up your server, you can install the free Web Host Edition of Plesk. To install it, you'll need to generate a licence key, which you can get from our central administration panel (Cloud Panel).
