We own, manage, and secure our datacenters from the ground up, meaning no third parties have access to your data. Westhost datacenters are equipped with optical, ionization, and heat detection sensors, along with VESDA fire detection. On‐site staff are available around the clock to ensure your machine’s protection at all times.
CCTV monitoring is in action at our datacenters 24 hours a day, complete with PIR motion detectors to highlight any adverse activity. Our facilities are inconspicuous and operate a dual‐factor, biometric entry system and stringent attendance logging. The site perimeter is alarmed and equipped with beam detectors while staffed with on‐site security guards.
The protection and maintenance of your data is integral to our operations. Redundancy is built into our infrastructure as standard. Our systems are designed and built from the ground up to ensure your data is always available. The datacenter has an N+1 generator power supply, 72‐hour backup generators, and intelligent cooling system to ensure optimal performance.
Our network infrastructure is built on 100% premium hardware, with 200Gb of connectivity and multiple industry‐leading transit providers with multiple fiber endpoints. All dedicated servers are connected to 1Gbps dedicated ports on fully redundant switches, ensuring downtime is no issue. We’ve spent 23 years meticulously planning our global network to meet the exacting standards of Westhost clients.
Solid State Drives (SSD) are built to provide read/write commands instantly. Combined with a gigabit port and a high‐performance network, Cloud SSD VPS hosting is built for speed.
Our intelligent control panel allows you to manage your Cloud SSD VPS hosting in one environment. You can monitor, reboot, backup, and make changes to your server on your time.

Our virtual private servers are designed and built to keep your data online. Should your VPS servers suffer an outage, your data will be instantly transferred to a live machine with no interruption.
Simply select your resources. You can use recommended pre‐set guides should you be unsure of the resources you’ll need getting started. Once you’ve decided, click the “Buy” button. Your VPS Cloud Hosting machine will be online within a few clicks.
Bringing your data as close as possible to your customers will boost your transfer speeds and reduce latency – two factors that can cause trouble for your website or application. Westhost operates on a global scale, and by hosting your data close to end users, you place them as a priority.
Shared hosting is exactly as it sounds, shared, which means that your server and resources are used by many different accounts. While great for a single small website, shared hosting often leaves much to be desired when considering speed and security. A VPS offers resources that are dedicated to you. Additionally, since your virtual instance is not shared with any other accounts, you don’t have to worry about security risks that are inherent to shared hosting.
VPS hosting offers much of the control and power of a dedicated server without the cost. Utilize resources that are dedicated solely to your account and enjoy the increased security and reliability of a dedicated server without paying for a larger environment than you need.
As many as you like! Cloud SSD VPS grows with you. If you need more space, bandwidth, or RAM at any time, you can upgrade and quickly add resources from within your hosting account. VPS solutions are great for websites that experience seasonal traffic spikes or heavy usage based on sales or promotional periods, such as around Thanksgiving or Black Friday.
While a dedicated server grants you full control and a range of benefits, virtual private server hosting is perfect for those who have a lesser resource requirement for their machine. VPS hosting is more cost‐effective and its ability to scale up and down as required gives you more freedom to grow your site or application without committing fully to the expense of a dedicated server.
