It’s important to have your boxes ticked

Your questions, our answers 📮

FAQs for everybody!
I'm not sure which VPS is right for me - how do I tell?

Every server caters to different needs, and it’s important that your VPS is suited to your requirements. You may have a large number of relatively quiet websites, or a small numbers of busy websites – those 2 examples may end up both needing an FM-3 plan for example.

Where there’s a decent/strong growth trajectory, we may instead recommend 1x or 2x FM-3/4 plans to ensure that you have a small cluster that’s able to move with your needs. Our unique approach to software and house-keeping leaves your websites quick, efficient and reliable.

First and foremost, we recommend having a chat with our Sales team – regardless of if/when you do or don’t plan to make a change, we can help you to understand your status quo and make a more informed decision.

How easy is it to upgrade or downgrade my new VPS?

Very easy. Depending on whether you’re going up or down in size, some work may be needed on your end due to restrictions with disk down-sizing however the majority of changes are easy and quick to implement (RAM, CPU, SSD increase, etc). Sales are here to help!

How thorough is the monitoring of the VPS platform?

Very! Our data centre PoPs are monitored for access via CCTV and alerting. We have temperature monitoring in-place, as well as power feed and hardware monitoring.

Beyond that, the hypervisors, networking interfaces and all VMs are kept under close watch. Depending on the plan you choose, services & further parameters are monitored closely.

Do you offer Dedicated Servers as well as Virtual/VM?

Depending on your needs, we do! We have a powerful VPS platform that we prefer to offer, however pre-defined and custom dedicated servers are also available.

How do you tackle maintenance work?

We transparently report our maintenance, upgrades, outages and other advisories via https://the.uptime.business – you can subscribe via email, Slack, webhook and other methods, or script/ingest the RSS feed how you please!

Generally speaking, we work on Friday nights with works extending into Saturday/Sunday nights if/as needed.

What our clients have to say about us

High praise from our favourite people

We needed a blend of best practice mixed with a few wishlist items to push the limits. LEOPARD have continually provided us with the best support I have received, hands down. They’re our secret weapon, but I recommend them to everyone.
Isaac F.

Design Agency, Australia

We migrated all of our sites to LEOPARD from a provider who are no longer Aussie. Since then, they’ve fine-tuned our VPS to give our clients improved performance. We’ve been with them for almost half a decade & have no plans to move!
