VPS hosting flexibility
SilverRack specializes in providing you with high performance and affordable Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting. We offer a variety of VPS hosting plans to fit any budget or application. Our VPS hosting plans are perfect for hosting Ruby on Rails, Python, PHP, and Java applications.
Our Monthly VPS Hosting Plans
Other VPS hosting providers make you pay months in advance or wait on a long wait list. All of our plans are available today! Simply signup, pay for 1 month, and your VPS will be configured immediately.
Who Needs a VPS?
The ideal user of a SilverRack VPS is someone who has outgrown their shared hosting environment and needs more room to grow. Or if you're simply tired of the headaches and lack of control with shared hosting, your own VPS is probably right for you. You should know your way around Linux and should feel comfortable setting up your own software on Linux. Remember, you will have full root access - so managing a mailserver, setting your iptables, and compiling the latest Apache code should sound like fun to you!
What Can I Do With a VPS?
Pretty much anything you could if you had your very own Linux server. Since you get full root access, you can install almost any software you want. You can run the latest Ruby on Rails stack with Apache 2.2, Passenger or Mongrel and MySQL. Or try out Nginx. When you're ready, deploy your new app with Capistrano. Our VPSs are compatible with all the latest buzzword technologies stacks out there.
VPSs are also great for testing and learning. You can create your VPS with a fresh OS install, play around with it, and instantly recreate it from scratch again and again. Our control panel allows you to change the OS of your VPS and recreate it within minutes.

Need to Host Your Ruby on Rails Application?
Our 384 or above plans are perfect for hosting Ruby on Rails applications. By the time you get Apache, MySQL, and a couple of Mongrel's running, you'll need at least 256mb of RAM to work with.
Want to get up and running quickly? We have Centos and Debian VPS templates that come with Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Apache 2.2, MySql 5, and ImageMagick installed and ready to go.
