Virtual Private Servers (VPS)

If you’re outgrowing your web hosting or simply want more control, a managed or fully managed VPS (Virtual Private Server) is the next logical choice for your hosting needs. It gives you more freedom with root access to Apache and PHP, plus you can install an SSL certificate, as well as any type of software – all without the responsibility of a physical dedicated server.

On a shared server, you rely on the performance of the platform provided. By choosing for VPS, you get to select a configuration best suited for your applications, requirements and growth.

What is the benefit of a VPS?

A VPS allows you to host sites (storefront, e-commerce, content, media) and software applications (primarily web: portal, extranet, collaborative solutions, wiki, CRM) with ease.

Unlike shared hosting, it allows multiple applications to be isolated from one another within the same container. While this VPS container shares physical resources (infrastructure) with other containers, its resources are dedicated to you.

All Servers Include:

Host server

  • Processor type 2x Intel E5-2630L v2
  • Processor core/clock speed 6 Core, 2.4/2.8Ghz
  • Processor memory 128GB ECC DDR3 1600MHz (8 x 16)
  • Processor cache 15MB
  • Hard disk 6x300GB 10k (slot 0,1,2,3,4,5)

 
Each multi-tenant VM provides

  • 5,000 SMTP relays
  • File and DB backups
  • Linux with cPanel available (managed & fully managed)
  • 1 SSL certificate – 1 year free ($112.99 renewal annually)

Fully Dedicated Servers

If you’re outgrowing your virtual private hosting and you want to take your hardware to the highest level, then a managed, fully dedicated is the only choice for your hosting needs. It gives the same flexibility that a managed VPS server environment with 100% of the servers' resources dedicated to you.

On a dedicated server there is more responsibility involved in the day-to-day management so this option should be reserved for only the largest of server tasks.

Dedicated Raid Array

Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) is a means for storing data on multiple hard disks, then linking the disks so that the operating system on your server views them as a single entity. We offer RAID-1 with our dedicated server hosting.

This RAID method of data storage is known as mirroring. Data is written to at least two disks, which offers a high degree of data security.

All Servers Include:

Host server

  • Processor type 1x Xeon E3-1220-v3
  • Processor core/clock speed 4 core, 3.1/3.5GHz
  • Processor memory 32GB ECC VLM UDIMM DDR3 1600MHz, (4 X 8)
  • Processor cache 15MB 8MB
  • Hard disk 2 x 2TB drives (RAID)

 
Each multi-tenant VM provides

  • 5,000 SMTP relays
  • File and DB backups (Paid Option)
  • Linux with cPanel available (managed & fully managed)
  • 1 SSL certificate – 1 year free (C$99.99 renewal annually)
