  1. Also, a true "cloud" would be a fully redundant, self healing network of nodes. This could be 5 nodes, 20 nodes or 100 nodes. It all depends on who your provider is. One issue that's frequently run into is because of using a SAN vs local storage, the r/w times can be higher.
  2. The only functional difference between a cloud server and a normal VPS is that a cloud server can migrate between hardware as needed. This is probably outside of your control, so it will be difficult to 'prove' it. You can't use the "if it only takes a few minutes to add ram, it's a cloud server" argument, because I can do the same with our VPS's. You may also find "Cloud" servers to be a bit slower sometimes over a traditional VPS container because typically the host nodes have lower specs than the typical VPS node. It also depends on your providers "definition" of the term "Clo
  3. There's not much difference other than the hardware aspect. Licensing is cheaper for a virtual instance & in a lot of cases you can get a more powerful VPS for less than a comparable physical server.
  4. I've got nothing for that one. Although it is a free service so I guess you can't really complain.
  5. I wouldn't say they're all crappy, ad riddled, but I honestly wouldn't expect much out of them. Just remember, they're not obligated to provide you anything at all... working one day then gone the next.
  6. Content has been updated since a company name change has taken place. Any questions, feel free to ask.
  7. Since the last posts here on the forum, we have changed company names & re-vamped our offerings. I have updated the thread with our new plans. If anyone has any questions, please do let me know. Thanks, Brent
  8. Well, generally speaking the cheaper the service, the less you'll get. Someone once told me, "pay peanuts & get monkeys".
  9. Hosting plan update - shared & reseller packages now feature double resources!

  11. This should never happen. Best practice should be to disable/suspend the account until everything is sorted out, not just delete files.
  12. Nathan, As I mentioned, I have sent you an email & cc'd my developer contact. Just wanted to be sure you got the email. Thanks, Brent
  13. Sorry for the delay in getting back to this thread, I haven't been on the forum in a few days. As I mentioned above, there was a problem with the install. -Brent
  14. Wow, that's horrible. I have a reputable developer I could put you in contact with if you're interested. I forward any website work to him that comes through us.
  15. We've already resolved the issue. It appears to have been an installation problem.
  16. This isn't DNS, it's ClamAV. I have our best linux tech working on this issue. It will not hinder the performance of the machine, it simply runs AV each night. We sometimes come across weird errors related to ClamAV running. When building VPS's by hand, things are configured a little differently than the standard cookie cutter VPS. We lock the firewalls down to the extreme and perform other tasks. Sometimes cPanel/WHM doesn't completely see some DNS related entries even though they're there and correct. I usually browse the forums every few hours checking to see if any customers
  17. Absolutely. There are a few ways. Without cPanel, you could use something like Webmin. With cPanel, on a VPS you will have WHM as well. You can use WHM to create as many accounts as you need. Each will have their own domain name and DNS records on the server. • shared: you use addon domains (cPanel) • VPS - cPanel - use WHM (Web Host Managed) • VPS - non cPanel - you can use something along the lines of webmin We are also working on creating the exact guides you're looking for in our Knowledge base. They're just still in the works.
  18. So everyone who has posted here on the thread knows, I have updated the original post with our links for our Germany servers.

  20. Ok, so we have a few options here. 1.) Shared Hosting - most likely the business plan, due to the space. We run LiteSpeed as well as CloudFlare. (See my 3rd option as well) 2.) Smaller managed VPS - This would actually be your best bet for a growing forum. The reason I say this is because we can instantly scale the VPS on demand. You will also get dedicated resources & database engine. I did take a look at your forum, and it does seem to have some lag when moving throughout the forum. 3.) At the top of my recommendation, I would say a "middle of the road" VPS such as Sand S
  21. Hi, Which hosting package are you interested in? If you're looking into shared or reseller hosting, you won't need much experience. VPS's on the other hand, require a little more administration unless you go with a managed plan. Let me know which plan you're interested in and I'll see which discounts are available. Thanks, Brent
  22. True, you've got a good point there and I could see this working out good for the company offering it as well as the customer.
  23. It could, and it could also be a good idea. That is something I will look into possibly offering with our unmanaged VPS's. As far as managed go, they're managed at all times, monitored etc etc. I do like the idea though of a one time fee to configure the server. The only thing that could become a problem is having to tell a customer there's a fee each time there's a request for something - this is why we have managed.
