We are here because we needed a reliable infrastructure for our own websites and projects. We know developers are looking for a hosting provider that provides performance and reliability with a decent feature-set , but we also believe in a "don't take a shirt off my back" price.
Jump aboard the vRocket, and our Intel Xeon CPU's will take you, your project, and your happy customers to the proverbial moon. Honestly, our hosts are wicked fast w/ CPU speeds of 2.93GHz per vCore.
Our network infrastructure is all built upon redundant 10Gbit links. We also have multi-gigabit, redundant (BGP peered), uplinks to 32 Internet Service Providers (WOW!Business, XO, Level3, GTT, TINET, etc.).
Our ZFS-based storage pools all have 1.2TB of really fast SSDs per node (for caching), paired with 15K SAS drives, and provide stellar disk performance and reliability as is to be expected.
If you do not want the hassle of managing your own VPS, we have a couple of high-performing cPanel servers which will let you dedicate all of your time to coding, rather than managing servers and databases. Check out our cPanel Features.
Powered by Project-Fifo Cloud Orchestrator, our SmartVPS's come with Instant Snapshots and (soon!) Live One-Click (Off-site!) Backups. Shared cPanel accounts, include daily, weekly and monthly backups of all data (and databases) free of charge.
With datasets.at as a source for our SmartVPS's datasets, you'll have a plethora of ready-to-run machine images (both Joyent official, as well as Community created ones). SmartOS, Linux, you name it!
Check them out here.
Most of our friends choose to deploy a vRocket SmartVPS (that is, a Virtual Private Server) running SmartOS (UNIX). This is an awesome choice if you know what you're doing, and you love seeing the #root> prompt. For those not so comfortable with UNIX, we also have KVM LINUX virtualization, within a SmartOS hypervisor. For already finished sites, quick turnaround projects, or those "Hey, Jimmy, can you make me a site" moments in our lives, we ultimately offer cPanel Shared Hosting (which comes with an awesome, dummy-proof, yet extremely powerful Control Panel UI).
Please, make sure you fully understand our *DIY* SUPPORT MODEL! We offer services for DEVELOPERS by DEVELOPERS and as such, our support model is a bit unique. In short, we'll keep the hosts, equipment and your machines up and running 100% of the time, but when it comes to anything else - it'll most likely be up to you to take care of. This approach keeps the costs low for those who absolutely know how to manage their own systems.

As web developers we know the importance of keeping code versioned. Most of us have learned that the hard way, very early on. We've got our Git and SVN repo's, TimeMachine backups of our Macs, etc., but when it comes to live, production, websites, most of us do not really have a decent backup (or restore) strategy. What about our MySQL databases? It is time to protect them all, affordably!

Powered by OX App Suite, our OpenXchange hosted Enterprise Email service (vROX Mail) is all you could ask for, if all you need is a simple to use, yet feature-full and secure email solution. Developers rather concentrate on code than managing email servers for their customers. Now, you can take care of this "problem" with in just a few clicks, and at a price that won't break the bank.
Starting @ $0.99/mo/mailbox for 5GB
Yes, we're that small, but also that much more lovable ☺
The stability and performance of vRocket platform has been really great since the day I signed up. I am hosting a decently sized database as well as a small cluster of web servers for my iPhone app, and could not be happier. VirtualRocket may be a small-town (and small-time) host, however, big-time improvement over previous companies, at least for me.
I run my own hosting company and have thousands of customers. While I can handle any larger requests that come my way, more and more of my customers were requesting virtual private servers. Instead of building and managing my own virtualization infrastructure, I decided to resell Virtual Rocket VPS's to any of my own customers who want them. They are reliable, fast, and Virtual Rocket is co-located in the same datacenter as my own company so it's great to work with my neighbors.
We did say that vRocket is built by developers for developers. This really is a pure fact, and as a developer, owner, and fellow tenant at vRocket, I thought I'd tell you what I like most about it: Extremely fast Internet speed (every VPS gets a Gigabit port no matter how small or large it is), fast and reliable SSD storage, and fun friends to run this company with. We do this for fun and beer, that's all.
We love pretty things. With that in mind, we believe you'll also love the portals we have for different services we offer. cPanel is one of the most awesome and famous Control Panels for Shared Hosting.
Project-Fifo, on the other hand is absolutely the BEST SmartOS Cloud Orchestration product you can find.
We're actually one of the first to use it in production the World!
