What is a virtual dedicated server?

A virtual dedicated server (VDS), or semi-dedicated server, is a premium shared hosting service where only a small number of clients share the computing resources of a powerful dedicated server. Each client is provisioned a virtual container in the server with access to dedicated CPU and memory resources.

Optimized for high performance

Because we only host a few clients per server, we allow a much higher CPU/memory usage per site than what is generally acceptable on standard shared hosting. For a resource hungry application like Wordpress this means your pages will load faster and feel more responsive for your visitors.

All-inclusive hosting features

Our virtual dedicated servers include all the features needed to run a high traffic Wordpress blog, including web hosting, email hosting and a user-friendly control panel (cPanel) for simple account management.

What is CloudLinux?

CloudLinux is a kernel technology used to control resource usage and encapsulate each client in an isolated, secure environment called a Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE). In shared hosting, the most common reason for downtime is a single account slowing down other accounts on the server.

If one customer is using an unfair amount of resources the server would become slow or go down completely, affecting all other customers on the server. With CloudLinux, we are able to isolate the impact to the offending tenant only, while all other sites remain unaffected.

What is CageFS?

CageFS is a virtualized per-user file system that uniquely encapsulates each customer's files and running processes, preventing users from seeing each other and potentially exploiting sensitive information. CageFS offers complete isolation and prevents a large number of attacks, such as privilege escalation and information disclosure attacks.

Up to 40x Faster with LiteSpeed Web Server

Did you know that LiteSpeed Web Server is up to 5 times faster than Apache and can increase PHP performance by as much as 4000%?

All our Magento optimized servers include a LiteSpeed Enterprise license for free and we will even tune it to work optimal with your Magento store.
