If you’ve outgrown shared hosting, and have decided that a VPS is the best option for you, keep reading to find out why Cyprus is the best location for VPS hosting!
What is a VPS?
VPS (virtual private server) hosting will take your website to new heights. A VPS is a virtual server, hosted on a physical server with many others but completely isolated, providing the features and functionality of a dedicated server at a more affordable price.
As your business grows, your website needs to follow suit, and a VPS provides the level of performance required for uninterrupted scalability, especially for businesses that heavily rely on their web presence.
Why choose Cyprus VPS hosting?
Cyprus is quickly becoming one of the most popular offshore hosting locations for a variety of reasons.
1. Cyprus is a global business destination
Cyprus has become a global business destination by offering many advantages for investors and offshore companies seeking to incorporate in the EU.
Although not officially a tax haven, Cyprus is an internationally recognized financial centre that offers offshore company formation opportunities, with the added benefits of having access to the European Union’s various economic and trade treaties.
Simply put, Cyprus’ efficient taxation system has one of the lowest corporate tax rates in the EU (12.5%) and non-resident based companies are also free from all local taxation.

2. Ideal geographic location
Located at the centre of the EMEA region (Europe, the Middle East and Africa), Cyprus is ideally situated for offshore business activities. Its unique advantage of being the only European Union member geographically located in Asia and the Middle East, has made Cyprus an attractive location for offshore businesses and investments and has quickly become an international investment platform to the EMEA region.
3. High Internet speeds
When choosing offshore VPS hosting, it’s important to determine whether the country’s internet infrastructure and speeds are reliable. Cyprus has a strong telecommunications infrastructure that is vastly and dependably improving. It’s vital to choose a VPS hosting provider who can guarantee you high server uptime and lowest possible latency.
NetShop ISP was the first in Cyprus to offer 1Gbps network at a very low cost, making the fastest speeds affordable to our clients.
4. Low risk for natural disasters
It’s crucial that the location of your server is safe and secure. The last thing you want is for circumstances beyond your control, such as a natural disaster or power outage, to affect the growth of your business. That’s why choosing a country that is not prone to natural disasters is very important, and that is what makes Cyprus hosting the ideal choice.
With very few natural disasters occurring in Cyprus, it is considered low risk to power and internet connectivity disruptions, so choosing a Cyprus server will provide you with that extra peace of mind.
5. Cyprus is a Forex & iGaming hub
Due to all the benefits Cyprus has as a business destination, it will come as no surprise that it has also become a financial hub for Forex firms. Many forex brokers use Cyprus as a base for operations, due to the low corporate tax we mentioned in our first point.
The rapid development in financial technology saw the financial services sector develop a great deal, making Cyprus one of Europe’s most prominent financial hubs, with many forex firms established on the island.
Cyprus is also a member of the European Economic Area and the European Union, meaning that Cyprus-based brokerages can offer their services to citizens of any other EEA country.
For these same reasons, the online gaming industry in Cyprus has also grown at a steady rate. Cyprus has infrastructure in place which creates a very hospitable environment for the betting industry to expand.
Whether you are in the Forex, Betting or iGaming industry, Cyprus is definitely a great location for VPS hosting.
