Virtual private server hosting (VPS hosting) continues to grow into one of the most popular web hosting services available. More and more businesses are taking advantage of the control and dependability of an entry-level dedicated server, for a price closer to that of shared hosting. VPS hosting makes it possible for businesses to enjoy power, control, and flexibility, while ensuring that their hosting service – and its price – scales appropriately for their requirements.
Hostek.com is an experienced provider of VPS hosting services and provides customers worldwide with the VPS hosting they require to create a responsive, reliable, and profitable web presence. Read on to find out how Hostek.com adds value to every VPS hosting plan with features specific to our VPS hosting lineup.
VPS hosting using VMware virtualization
VPS hosting depends on a technology known as virtualization. Virtualization effectively divides a dedicated server into a number of smaller virtual machines, each with its own unique configuration. A virtualization hypervisor runs in the background of the server, deploying each virtual machine and establishing its settings.
A wide range of available virtualization systems are capable of basic VPS hosting. However, Hostek.com has invested resources to find the most appropriate solution for our hosting infrastructure and the demands of our customers. This solution is VMware.
VMware is a virtualization platform used by more than 190,000 customers worldwide to create and manage virtual machines. Its feature set has a lot in common with other solutions, but, distinctively, VMware operates with a much smaller footprint than competing products. As a result, VPS hosting powered by VMware offers the features customers expect, without becoming a significant drain on hardware resources. This allows a hosting provider to use more of the dedicated server for customer accounts, and less of the server to run the platform. For end-users, this means lower costs and improved performance.
VPS hosting with burstable bandwidth
VPS hosting is often used by businesses in the growth stage. Customers commonly select a VPS hosting plan when shared web hosting no longer meets their fixed system resource needs, but dedicated server hosting is not yet required. As a website becomes more popular and the type of content it offers changes, it can be incredibly difficult to estimate bandwidth usage.
To help, Hostek.com offers burstable bandwidth on every VPS hosting plan. This means that in addition to the standard bandwidth allowance available, it is possible for customers to exceed their bandwidth for a short period of time. This provides additional protection against unexpected traffic spikes that would usually result in compromised performance or service outage.
In other words, burstable bandwidth helps keep your VPS hosting plan online more consistently.
VPS hosting on a cloud-based infrastructure
Working alongside burstable bandwidth, Hostek.com also provides a cloud-based infrastructure for all VPS hosting services, improving availability even further.
Cloud hosting refers to any platform where system resources such as disk space come from multiple hardware servers, or nodes. The distributed nature of cloud hosting means that if one server becomes unavailable, other servers can step in to maintain service. It is this cloud-based infrastructure that allows Hostek.com to offer a 99.999% network uptime guarantee on all VPS hosting services.
In addition, cloud VPS hosting makes it easier to increase your resource allocations as your website grows and your demands change.
