A virtual private server (VPS) is a virtual machine sold as a service by Harbour City Hosting. A VPS runs its own copy of an operating system, and customers may have superuser-level access to that operating system instance, so they can install almost any software that runs on that Operating System.

This is a small example of what you can run on a VPS,

Web servers - Apache, Nginx, IIS etc.
Web applications - free applications are available for almost every task. Wordpress, Mediawiki, Joomla, Drupal are all popular.
Development platform- popular languages are PHP, Java, .NET, Ruby, Perl, and Python.
Database servers - like MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server and Postgres.
Mail servers Postfix and Exim are popular on Linux, or Exchange on Windows.
Source control servers like Subversion or Git.
Remote backup location.
Foreign exchange trading software - like MetaTrader

If you have a specific application that you need to run and you're unsure if it is compatible with a VPS then we would be happy to find out for you.

Self-Healing Failover means if a physical machine (node) goes offline for any reason the Virtual Machines running on that node are automatically mounted on another node and brought back online. This means redundancy for your virtual private server hosted with Harbour City Hosting.
This means we can provide live data migrations meaning node maintenance can be done without any downtime at all to virtual machines.
A true self-healing environment such as ours is possible thanks to our 100% Full SSD Storage Arrays.
