Blog The Truth about Free VPS

Customer gaining information on Importance of Virtual Private Networks

Looking for a free virtual private server? Here's the truth: free virtual private servers, or VPS servers, as they are most commonly referred to, are as real as a unicorn. And here’s why. Unlike standard web hosting, where a low-end server is used to host thousands of websites (the service some companies offer for free), running virtual servers is a very expensive operation.

At ColossusCloud (a brand of ServerPoint.com), our virtual servers do not share resources. We run all virtual servers in expensive, high-performance SSD storage arrays, using powerful Xeon E5 servers that have redundant power supplies. In addition, all traffic runs on top of a high-speed 10g/40g network that most providers just can't afford to build. We designed ColossusCloud for maximum performance and speed.

So, what does it all mean? It simply means that if you are looking for a free Windows or Linux VPS, you are out of luck. Free VPS just doesn’t exist. What many providers do is offer a trial for a certain period of time. And they do it with an intention that you are trying the service to become a full-paying customer. Be prepared to talk to sales representatives often during this period.

Another important reason as to why a free VPS doesn't exist is abuse. Unfortunately, a server can easily become a cyber weapon. It can be used to spread spam, launch targeted attacks, illegally distribute movies over BitTorrent, run websites to support terrorist groups, and much more.

ColossusCloud offers competitively priced VPS's for any price range. Sign up at https://www.colossuscloud.com  to get started.
