Virtual Private Servers

CentOS (Community ENTerprise Operating System) is a free community-driven project, with open source code delivered from RHEL Linux distribution.

CentOS offers enterprise-level stability strengthened by robust performance and represents a reliable, low-maintenance, secure option for running virtual private servers.

Ubuntu is one of the most popular operating systems for running virtual private servers inside the Cloud. Built over the Debian Linux distribution, Ubuntu shares its commitment to principles of open-source software and offers continually developing solutions with agile, secure and versatile performance capabilities.

Windows Server OS (2012 and optionally 2008 R2 versions are provided) allows you to run any Windows-based software on your virtual machine with support of popular tools and technologies: ASP.NET, PHP, SQL, Visual Studio, Active Directory, etc.

Due to the fact that Windows OS is a proprietary software and can’t be distributed freely (i.e. requires the license to be applied to the platform), you can be charged for using such containers (regardless of whether it’s running or stopped). Read More

No More Sharing with Virtual Private Server Hosting

Virtual Private ServersMany businesses start out by purchasing a shared hosting plan. Shared hosting plans involve many different websites being hosted on one web server which is connected to the internet. This is quite cost effective, as the overall cost is often shared by all individuals using the server. However, as businesses grow, so do their needs. As corporations become larger, they outgrow their current shared hosting plans and find that they need more – more resources, more space and more privacy. Virtual private server hosting provides all of this for users. Virtual private servers are physical servers that have been virtually divided into spaces that act as separate servers. They come with their own bandwidth, operating systems and disc space. While these servers are ideal for businesses that are continually growing and require more control over their servers and hosting services, they can also be great for businesses that are just beginning and are not sure if shared or dedicated hosting is the right choice for them. Virtual private servers offer everything that shared hosting offers and more, only without all of the sharing.
