Good hosting is essential for your website or application to be succesfull (For example, WordPress, Drupal or Plone websites). You’ll need good hosting to ensure that your website works correctly and that it’s secure and stable. It also assures that your website will be load quickly and that you won’t have to worry about activities of other websites or applications.

This of course is not a problem for a blog with your travel report or smaller websites in general. It is recommended to start using a Virtual Private Server (VPS) if your website has 5000 monthly visitors and 4 or more webpages. A VPS can run Teamspeak, Game or Jabber servers and is Alternatively also suited for development, for example: Ruby on Rails, CodeIgniter and Django.

VPS in action

With VPS hosting you will obtain a set part of the server-capacity at your service. This part of the capicity is for you and only you and cannot be accesed by other users or websites that use the same server. This ensures that other users will never “bother” your CPU time. Even during peak hours.

Each of our clients will obtain a part of the hardware resources, selected during ordering of your VPS. Therefore the performance of a VPS wont be influenced by other clients.

Each VPS has it’s own RAM memory, disk space, processes, OS, serverload and even their own filesystem. In other words: each VPS is fully independent, and thus “Private”. It is your own private cloud environment.

At our company no servers are being over-sold and the promised amount of resources is really yours. Our Proxmox cloud environment guarantees your VPS to be continuously online and scalable to cater any new demands for resources. By setting up all hosting components separately and then linking them back to act as a single unit, a so-called "fail-over" environment is created. Within this cloud environment, hardware can fail, be replaced or added without the cloud environment having to be taken offline. This is the big advantage of Cloud Hosting when comparing it to Traditional Hosting.
