Every day, while doing SEO research for our websites, we constantly come across the famous keyword: free vps, as well as dozens of variations of it.
We also see a lot of clients arrive at our website looking for the same.
But here is the truth: unlike standard web hosting, where one single, and cheap, low end dedicated server can host thousands of web sites, running virtual servers is actually a very expensive operation.
At ColossusCloud, virtual private servers do not share resources. We also host all virtual servers in high performance, and expensive, SSD storage arrays, using powerful Xeon E5 servers with redundant power feeds. Plus, all network traffic runs on high performance 10g/40g networks that most providers can't even afford to build. We built ColossusCloud for speed.
What does all of this mean? If you are looking for a free virtual server, or VPS as it is commonly known, running Windows or Linux, you are out of luck. Such a thing doesn't exist. Many companies will offer a trial for a certain period of time, but that is for those with the genuine intention that you are really trying the service to evaluate and to become a full paying customer. Be prepared to talk to sales people to get this trial.
There is also another important reason why free VPS services do not exist: abuse. A server can easily be considered a cyber gun. It can be used to launch attacks, send massive amounts of spam, illegally distribute movies, run web sites to help terrorists communicate with each other, and much more.
But know that we do offer great VPS servers at a very good price. Visit ColossusCloud and order yours today!
