What are the advantages of VPS Hosting?
With VPS Hosting, you have complete isolation. This means that no matter what other users might be doing on the server, your VPS package will be unaffected. With root access, you can install whatever applications you require. VPS also gives you guaranteed resources, so no matter what, the CPU,RAM, HDD and Bandwidth allocated to your VPS package will always be available for your applications. It gives you all the features and functions of Dedicated server, without the additional cost.
What is a KVM VPS?
KVM is a virtualization solution for Linux that allows the hosting of various virtual machines (VMs) on a single physical server. With KVM, each VM operates as an independent entity with its own virtualized hardware resources like memory, CPU, and disk space.
A KVM VPS offers several benefits:
- Isolation: Each KVM VPS is isolated from other VMs on the same physical server. This ensures that the performance and security of one VPS are independent of activities of others.
- Full root access: KVM VPS provides full administrative access which allows users to have control over their virtual server. This helps users to install and configure their preferred operating system, software applications, and settings.
- Dedicated resources: KVM VPS offers dedicated resources to each virtual machine, meaning that the allocated CPU, memory, and disk space are not accessible to other users. This assures consistent performance and eliminates the risk of resource contention.
- Scalability: KVM VPS can be seamlessly scaled up or down based on the user's requirements. Additional resources, such as CPU cores, RAM, and storage, can be modified as needed, providing flexibility and cost-efficiency.
KVM VPS provides a reliable and customizable virtual server environment that allows users to run their applications and websites with the help of virtualization technology.
What is the difference between KVM and OpenVZ?
KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) and OpenVZ are both virtualization technologies used to create virtual environments on a physical server, but they differ in their approach and capabilities.
Here's a comparison between KVM and OpenVZ:
1. Virtualization Approach:
which stands for Kernel-based Virtual Machine, is a robust virtualization technology that replicates the complete hardware environment for each virtual machine. It empowers the simultaneous operation of numerous virtual machines on a single physical server, even with varying operating systems.
OpenVZ is a virtualization technology that relies on containerization. It utilizes a single shared kernel to run several isolated containers, which are referred to as virtual private servers. These containers share the same host operating system but operate independently.
2. Operating System:
KVM allows for the execution of different operating systems, such as Linux, Windows, and other supported options within the virtualization platform. On the other hand, OpenVZ is limited to Linux-based operating systems because it depends on a shared kernel. Both the host and containers in OpenVZ must have matching kernel versions.
OpenVZ exclusively supports Linux-based operating systems due to its reliance on a shared kernel. It requires both the host and containers to have identical kernel versions.
3. Resource Allocation:
KVM ensures dedicated resources for every virtual machine, assigning exclusive CPU cores, memory, and disk space to each one. This approach guarantees improved isolation and performance.
OpenVZ operates on a shared resource model where CPU and RAM resources are distributed among containers. This sharing of resources can result in potential contention if a particular container requires more resources than others.
KVM enables flexible allocation of resources and facilitates seamless scaling by adding or removing virtual machines as needed.
OpenVZ optimizes resource utilization by eliminating the need for additional resources for each container instance. This characteristic makes OpenVZ lightweight and scalable, enabling a greater number of containers to be hosted on a server, thus increasing container density.
5. Kernel Modifications:
KVM does not require modifications to the host kernel, making it suitable for situations where the host environment needs to remain untouched.
OpenVZ requires a modified kernel on the host system to support containerization. This may limit its compatibility with certain hosting environments or restrict kernel updates.
In summary, KVM offers full virtualization with greater flexibility and compatibility, supporting multiple operating systems. OpenVZ, on the other hand, provides container-based virtualization, offering high efficiency and scalability, but limited to Linux-based operating systems and a shared kernel. The choice between KVM and OpenVZ depends on specific requirements, such as the need for different operating systems, resource isolation, and scalability.
Can I install cPanel on my VPS package?
We have an automated installation process configured on our servers. When you buy a KVM VPS cpanel will be installed on your package. This is inclusive of any package that you choose to buy
Is a Dedicated IP available?
Yes, at an additional cost. You can raise a support ticket to get a dedicated IP.
What kind of support do you offer?
Our support team will assist you in managing your servers. For a list of items that we support, please refer to the features mentioned above
What is your backup policy?
You are responsible for your backups and web content. It is recommended that you keep copies of your content safe and make your own backups. You can take a backup from your cPanel or use a remote backup solution.
Is Upgrade/Downgrade possible?
No, an upgrade or downgrade is not possible between the plans or resources.
