How good are free VPS servers?

Check the fine print on other VPS offers carefully — there may be a catch.

Besides VPS free trials, you will often come across "completely free" VPS offers. Before you sign up, you should take note of a few things. Find out whether they offer quality server locations, performance and security. Remember, high quality and secure server infrastructure come with costs.

With completely free offers, make sure there are no hidden costs that could be expensive in the long run. Choosing an experienced provider like IONOS is a safer bet. You can test your IONOS VPS risk-free and, if you like it, continue to rent it at a reasonable price.

What to look out for with "free" VPS

Security

Many free VPS hosting providers skimp on security. In contrast, IONOS is constantly investing in state-of-the-art data centers, comprehensive IT security and product-specific features. This makes us one of the most secure hosting providers worldwide.

Server location

With free VPS offers, make sure the servers are located in the USA, as is the case with IONOS. We store your data securely according to all relevant data protection regulations.

Performance

The processing power and traffic of free VPS servers are often limited. This can quickly slow down websites, especially content-heavy ones. With IONOS, you receive flexible and powerful hosting at a competitive price.

Webspace/Storage

Limited webspace or storage limits your overall project. If you need more, a “free VPS” quickly begins to get expensive. Opting for IONOS from the start saves you time and helps you plan more effectively.

Operating system choice

Do you want a free Windows VPS or a free Linux VPS? Unlike most “free” providers, IONOS gives you the choice. You can also switch operating system at any time.

Service

If a free Windows VPS is having issues with Linux, you may have to wait weeks for support. After all, customer service is a cost factor for providers. With IONOS, 24/7 service is included.

FAQ – Frequently asked questions

A virtual private server (VPS) is best suited for businesses and personal web projects that require extensive, stable system resources, such as memory (RAM), processing power, and storage space. These can include blogs, community servers and online stores.

Virtual servers usually offer good value for money compared to other server options, such as dedicated servers. This is because several customers share the same server hardware, practically renting a share of its computational power. Customers have their own virtual server infrastructure that is exclusively available to them.

Projects with fluctuating resource requirements are best served by a highly flexible cloud server, which can scale resources according to need in real time. On the other hand, dedicated servers are better suited to projects that need exclusive and undivided server resources.

Generally, you can cancel your IONOS order within the first 14 days after receipt of that order. Once this period has expired, we can no longer cancel your order.

If you are not satisfied with a product you ordered within the first month, you can make use of our 30-day money-back guarantee.

Of course, you can cancel your IONOS contracts at any time, until the end of the minimum contract period for the respective product. To do so, you must comply with the contractually agreed cancellation period. This is usually a month before the end of the minimum contract period. In other words, we must receive your cancellation at least one month before the end of the minimum contract period for it to take effect. If we receive your cancellation later than that, it will only become effective after a further minimum contract period.

We offer server packages for private and corporate web projects of any size. In terms of root servers, we therefore provide suitable cloud server and dedicated server options in addition to our virtual servers, each with their own domains. For more options, take a look at our server deals.
