Data center colocation allows a small or mid-sized business to save money by storing and running parts of its IT infrastructure off-site instead of building and maintaining a large dedicated data center in-house. For instance, a start-up business might colocate its servers. In such a scenario, the servers are owned by the business but are colocated to save money in overhead costs incurred by things like cooling, physical security or insurance. Some colocation providers also provide technical support for additional fees.
A dedicated hosting service, dedicated server, or managed hosting service is a type of Internet hosting in which the client leases an entire server not shared with anyone. This is more flexible than shared hosting, as organizations have full control over the server(s), including choice of operating system, hardware, etc.
In some cases a dedicated server can offer less overhead and a larger return on investment. Our dedicated servers are housed in a Canadian datacenter, providing redundant power sources, network links and HVAC/fire suppression systems. In contrast to colocation, the server hardware is owned by the provider.
Dont want to be limited by the limits of your hosting provider? Get a VPS! Virtual private servers bridge the gap between shared/reseller hosting services and dedicated hosting services, giving independence from other customers of the VPS service in software terms but at less cost than a physical dedicated server. As a VPS runs its own copy of its operating system, customers have root access to that operating system instance, and can install almost any software that runs on the OS.
All our VPS servers have a management interface located in your client area to Start/Shutdown/Reboot/Enable/Disable your VPS. You can also rebuild (re-provision) your VPS to a different OS, reset the root password, enable TUN/TAP device, etc. We are constantly working on ways to add features to help our clients with VPS management.
Want to earn profit selling hosting services, and get your foot in the door into a diverse industry? A reseller web hosting service or virtual hosting service is similar in comparison to shared hosting, only it allows the client the ability to resell regular shared hosting accounts for profit, giving their clients their own login/passwords. All of this is typically white-label, and the end-user typically would not know they are being hosted on a reseller account. Each site “sits” on its own partition, or section/place on the server to keep it separate from other sites. This is generally the most economical option for hosting, as many people share the overall cost of server maintenance.
A shared web hosting service or virtual hosting service refers to a web hosting service where many websites reside on one web server connected to the Internet. Each site “sits” on its own partition, or section/place on the server to keep it separate from other sites.
