VPS (Virtual Private Servers)
The number of domains you can use on a VPS is determined by many factors such as:
- CPU and Ram
- How active the sites are
- Number of sites on the server
Having more CPU and Ram is best, up to a certain point.
If the site is active we would recommend using CloudFlare's CDN (Content Delivery Network). This will reduce resources on your VPS.
The more sites you put on a VPS, the busier it can be. For any serious site, we suggest starting at least at the Silver level. If you will be developing on the VPS for an extended time before you go live, then start with the Starter if you want; just remember the Silver or Business will offer better performance.
Hostek has chosen to focus on providing the absolute best in Business application hosting.
Therefore, to protect and provide the best for our business customers, Hostek does not provide hosting for game servers.
The common web related ports such as web, SSL, FTP, and email are opened by default. The ports for RDP, MySQL, and MS SQL ports are restricted for security purposes but can be opened for external access within your WCP panel on Windows-based VPS's.
We suggest only opening these ports to specific IP addresses that are known and can be trusted.
If you have a custom application that needs a non-standard port opened, please create a support ticket and ask that the IP address of your VPS be placed in our less restrictive perimeter firewall group. You can then enable the port within your Windows Control Panel.
