Most dedicated hosting solutions are fixed on resource availability acting like a cap on your website growth. Our cloud-based servers free you from the limits of a bare-metal server by providing completely scalable environment allowing you to easily upgrade or downgrade your server resources to simultaneously meet your website demands, reduce cost and address temporary traffic spikes.
Cloud hosting refers primarily to the use of virtual hardware, network, storage and composite solutions from a cloud vendor. It is enabled through virtualization, whereby the entire computing capacity of an infrastructure or data center is distributed and delivered to multiple users simultaneously. The user uses underlying infrastructure to host its own applications, services and data. For example, a physical server can be virtualized and consolidated to host several cloud servers, all sharing the processor, memory, storage, network and other resources.
Our VPS Hosting plans all come with a high availability feature that essentially takes your VPS container, and empowers it with a cloud infrastructure. How does this work? We put a premium on your server's uptime, so we created an infrastructure of redundant hardware clusters that provides your partition with real-time redundancy. If for some reason there is an error on your server, there is another server in the cluster with that backup information ready to spin up. We utilize Virtuozzo, a virtualization solution built on top of OpenVZ.
With the cPanel/WHM control panel you can create, manage and scale unlimited hosting accounts on your personal virtual server. From managing your websites and emails to starting your own reseller hosting business, the cPanel/WHM control panel gives you the tools to manage your business professionally without the need of any special skills or previous experience.
When you provide enterprise-level hosting services, it goes without saying that quality needs to be the prime focus!
