VPS Hosting

We provide secure, reliable, fast hosting, with the flexibility of fully-managed, part-managed, or self-managed options.

Our main hosting product is the virtual private server, or VPS. Available as either customer-managed UK VPS hosting, part-managed VPS hosting, or fully managed hosting.

Self or customer VPS server management is for the pros who are experienced sysadmins, comfortable on the command line, applying security updates so you can keep your server running at peak performance — we put you in control with many configuration and customisation options.

Faelix owns its servers and operates its own network — unlike a lot of small companies who are just reselling someone else.

IPv4, IPv6, Anycast, BGP

Our network is multi-homed and fully dual-stacked. We’re very happy to help you announce your own address space from a virtual server hosted with us. Get in touch if you have a bespoke requirement like this.
