First Class: Managed VPS Service
To meet the needs of our customers with high-resource-demanding sites, we have prepared a special plan - First Class. It comes with dedicated hardware resources that are set up to meet the needs of popular heavily-visited dynamic sites, which have become unsuitable to be hosted on shared servers. The type of plan can be compared to Managed VPS - you get dedicated resources, but we are the ones that set up everything. As a First Class plan customer, you get the same Control Panel software shared hosting plans have, but on the background, your account will be the only one on the platform.
|CPU||2 dedicated cores, Xeon E5-2630 @ 2.30GHz|
|RAM||4096MB dedicated RAM|
|Storage||90 GB on a dedicated Solid-State-Disk|
|Data Transfer||5 000 GB / Month|
FTP accounts, Parked domains
|SSL certificate and dedicated IP||YES|
Our experience shows that when it comes to popular, heavily-visited MySQL-driven sites, usually the culprit is neither the CPU time, nor the space/traffic. It is the I/O subsystem that is usually overloaded by heavy MySQL queries. We have eliminated this problem by using Solid-state-disks - their performance is much better than that of RAID6 arrays.
Dedicated IP address, web, MySQL, and mail servers
As you will be the only user on the virtual machine, any services on it will run only for your site. This makes the server behavior fully predictable for you, as no other user can clog up any of the services, or do anything that can obstruct the operation of your site or mail.
System backups on First Class plans are larger, and we keep daily backups for the last 15 days. Also, a snapshot image is saved every two hours which allows faster full restoration in case of an emergency.
Unlike our shared hosting plans, First Class plans come with SSH access to the server. This is a managed service, and you will not get root access to the server; however, SSH will allow you to easily perform most tasks that you may need.
Memcached is a memory caching system that is used to increase the speed of dynamic web sites by reducing the CPU/database load. Memcached generally optimizes the performance of the server and provides further resources to your site.
Although requested by customers, this utility is not suitable for shared hosting, as it requires a lot more server (CPU) resources. However, with the First Class plan and its dedicated resources, there is no problem to run video-processing utilities on your account.
