Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know about Virtual Private Servers
Is a Virtual Private Server right for me?

Virtual Private Servers are unmanaged which means you are responsible for the day to day maintenance of your server (e.g. backups, updates & maintenance). We would recommend having at least some experience with servers and control panels.

Our Standard, Hybrid, Reseller and Managed hosting solutions are fully managed if you would prefer not to handle the day to day running of a virtual server.

However, unlike many hosting providers, we'll ensure that we provide you with a production ready server that's fully up to date and optimised.

We'll also help you setup your backups and put monitoring in place so that you can be notified if there's a problem with your server.

If you're really stuck, then we won't ever leave you in a tricky situation - support is always available if you need it.

Which control panel would you recommend?

Plesk Onyx is suitable for the large majority of individuals and businesses, it's also better suited to Virtual Private Servers as it's typically less resource hungry than cPanel (for example). It's also easier to setup, maintain, use and cheaper to license.

cPanel/WHM is primarily aimed at web hosting providers but it's also suitable for medium to large design studios. cPanel is powerful but also requires more resources, making it suitable for our V2 package or greater.

Can you upgrade/downgrade between packages?

Absolutely. You can upgrade and downgrade between packages at any time (subject to availability). RAM and CPU upgrades require a reboot of your virtual server, whereas disk space upgrades require 10-15 minutes downtime whilst the disk is resized.

Unfortunately it's not currently possible to downgrade your virtual server's disk size, but RAM and CPU downgrades are no problem at all.

We're also happy to schedule upgrades outside of normal business hours to minimise disruption to your business.

Can you migrate the data/websites from my existing server or host?

We're usually happy to help you with the migration but please get in touch or call 01872 672 050 to discuss your requirements in more depth as every server & host is different.

What happens if I run out of bandwidth?

It's extremely rare we see customers exceed their bandwidth, most customers don't even come close to their allowance. However, we won't suspend or throttle your service if you exceed your bandwidth limit

Overages under 20% will be ignored but extreme cases may incur a bandwidth charge which is typically £0.02 pence per GB + VAT.

We strongly believe in fair and open pricing, this is why we charge cost for most extras such as licensing and bandwidth.

Elliott Davidson from Impression

I have used cloudabove hosting for several years now and I couldn't be happier with their service and support. I have run into a few speedbumps along the way and the great team over at cloudabove have always been able to fix the issues and get things working how they should. I couldn't recommend them highly enough.

James Gillard from DCINET

One client we had, a Hotel Chain received all their bookings via email, so availability of their email system was key to their business. We had no concerns in using a coludabove. Unlike the expensive "big named" supplier they used before, the cloudabove server NEVER went.
