Our Goal

Octopus exists to solve "real world" problems with a secure, reliable, stable Australian-based hosting platform. View plans

If your expectations aren't being met, with Octopus you can deal with a friendly, helpful human, who will try to help without just hiding behind SLAs, or blindly passing the blame.

What is a VPS?

A 'Virtual Private Server' (VPS) is a partition of a real physical server that gives you the appearance and capability of a dedicated machine.

Renting a VPS service from Octopus gives you the ability to install and maintain your own webserver software. This is ideal for use with technologies such as:

  • Ruby on Rails
  • Python
  • Load-balanced proxying
  • Database clustering
  • Sandbox testing of software updates

Once your website is running, your server software remain untouched, so your working website is unaffected by system upgrades or other hosting customers.
