Hosting Offer

Network EQ have "topped-up" this offer with a special offer on a virtual server hosting package saving you £10 a month.

Virtual servers offer you almost all the benefits of having a full dedicated server, with full control and better performance than shared hosting, but without the high cost of a traditional dedicated server. Virtualisation allows a powerful physical server to be partitioned into separate virtual servers, each with guaranteed CPU resources, RAM and disk space, securely separated from the other virtual servers on the same hardware. We use Citrix XenServer Enterprise Edition virtualisation software developed by Cambridge University and backed by commercial support from Citrix.

WebsiteSpark Virtual Server features

  • 2GB dedicated RAM
  • 4 Virtual CPU Cores
  • 60GB disk space
  • 300GB Bandwidth per month
  • £55 per month (regular price is £65)
