Virtual Infrastructure Benefits

Farbyte's cloud virtual server service dramatically reduces costs compared on-premise & co-located server solutions.

All VPS can be administered remotely, from anywhere in the world, eliminating the associated costs & lost productivity of site visits.

With triple replication of all data & multiple failover paths, our cloud infrastructure provides a more reliable platform than dedicated or on-premise solutions & at a fraction of the cost!

Unmanaged VPS hosting can be billed at every 1, 3, 6, 12, 24 or 36 month periods.


Our web browser based VPS control panel allows you to shutdown, reboot or boot the VPS at any time.

Initially there are 2 ways to access your VPS:

  • SSH or
  • via the web console provided in the VPS control panel

After the VPS has deployed, you can add additional remote access methods to your requirements (e.g. RDP, VNC, etc.)

Any SSH client software can be used to connect to the VPS.

By default our Linux VPS are intended for carrying out server based operations, therefore no window desktop is provided out of the box.

However, you can install any Linux window system & remote access software you like after the VPS is deployed.


You can access a terminal console for your VPS at anytime by logging into our VPS control panel & using the browser based console client, or creating a special proxy console session & using any SSH client to connect to that.

As such, you can access the VPS, even if you IP address get blocked by your VPS firewall, etc.
