What is a cloud VPS server?
More specifically, Cloud Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a Cosyhost virtual machine that shares hardware and network resources with other cloud VPS servers just like a standard virtual machine from most cloud service providers.
How can I get cloud VPS servers?
Cloud VPS servers are provided by a fully automated hosting system that performs a multi-step server provisioning process to ensure you have a clean and secure server whenever you need it. Cosyhost Cloud VPS servers will be deployed within 2 to 10 minutes.
Cloud VPS servers are billed hourly or fixed-time with monthly, quarterly, semi-annual and annual billing cycles. You can order Smart VPS servers through the customer portal or automate provisioning through the Cosyhost Servers API.
How can I scale my Cloud VPS server?
