Virtual Private Servers In Kenya (Africa)
In Kenya, there are various providers of VPS services, depending on user specifications. VPS refers to Virtual Private Servers, which are virtual machines sold by internet hosting service providers. A VPS runs its own operating system, and the user can run several applications on top of the OS as the super user. Having a virtual machine has the advantage that the server specifications can be adjusted to meet the user requirement, without a need for hardware acquisition.
There are various providers of Virtual private servers in Kenya. Companies like TrueHost Kenya and CloudPap offer several packages for virtual servers, and many others are coming up. Virtual servers are popular as they can offer many more services compared to the normal web hosting packages, and other features such as email and app hosting. VPS providers can also allow hosting of email servers, which allow one to send many emails without a limit to what one can send. With data centers located in Kenya, many hosting companies are able to have servers physically located in Kenyan data centers, thus increasing the speed of access for clients that are locally located in Kenya, and also help global firms to have back up and secondary servers collocated in Kenya.

With the ones offered by CloudPap, it is possible to deploy and get the server working in juts a few minutes, and even email servers can be made to work with just a few steps of configuration.
