Snowball provides high quality VPS (virtual private server) hosting. Our line of virtual servers are the ideal solution for clients who require the control of a dedicated server matched with the affordability and simplicity of a traditional shared hosting account.

A virtual private server (VPS, also referred to as Virtual Dedicated Server or VDS) is a method of partitioning a physical server computer into multiple servers that each has the appearance and capabilities of running on its own dedicated machine.
