First Class: Managed VPS Service

Order

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.

SOLID-STATE-DISK STORAGE

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.

EXTENDED BACKUPS

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.

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.

MEMCACHED

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.

SSH ACCESS

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.

VIDEO PROCESSING

Although requested by customers, video processing utilities are not suitable for shared hosting servers, as they require 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.

There are CPU/Memory limits set by default on First Class plan accounts, which we consider safe to ensure the proper operation of the system. These limits are adjustable.

First Class accounts are billed on a monthly basis, all volume-based discounts are applied. When calculating the discounted price for customers with more than one account, all customer accounts are counted, including accounts on shared servers.
