VIP Hosting - Mini Pro

VIP Hosting - Mini Pro

Cost-effective, Professionally Managed Server

Our introduction to the managed server range is the Mini Pro. It is suited to those on a budget and whose sites, whilst mission critical, do not require the guaranteed fail-over and uptime of a RAID system. The server does, however, include all the superlative management and backup facilities described previously. Its memory and processing capabilities allow moderate traffic sites to run very well.

You may transfer up to 1000 Gigabytes of included data transfer per month through the Mini Pro. This is significantly more than any other entry-level managed server from any commercial source, and will allow your site to grow comfortably.

Small businesses and new ventures will benefit enormously from the well supported value for money that the Mini Pro represents. The Mini Pro is housed in a compact but well-ventilated 1U case.
