HostRound Launches Managed SSD VPS Hosting Service in 2018

VPS hosting is the latest addition to our product lineup, offering an excellent alternative for anyone that needs a light, moderate or even intensive traffic solution.

Reliable hosting solutions should be affordable for businesses that want to establish an online presence and remain competitive. At HostRound, we’ve invested heavily in new technologies and infrastructure that allow us to offer affordable hosting packages that free you from storage, speed, and feature constraints.

Why Choose a VPS Hosting Solution?

VPS (Virtual Private Server) hosting allows for a virtually isolated machine that can be accessed and configured as if it were a standalone resource. HostRound makes the VPS even more attractive by using Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) infrastructure. The benefit of this technology is that KVM provides real virtualization where allocated resources are not shared between different virtual servers on the same hardware (Server). The result is faster and more reliable performance, without slowdowns that can be caused by overprovisioning. VPS provides full control over your hosting environment with root access and much more power than shared hosting, so you can install any software you want and host projects of any size.

Intel Xeon Processing Power with Kernel-Based Virtualization

Processing power matters with any server hosting solution, and at HostRound we use some of the most powerful Intel Xeon server processors to provide you with maximum speed and efficiency.

Intel’s E5 server CPU’s are utilized, with the E5-1650 v4 being the most commonly found in HostRound’s servers. These CPU’s are built on 14nm technology which improves efficiency without sacrificing performance. 6 cores / 12 threads, 15MB of SmartCache and a maximum turbo frequency of 4.0GHz per core makes these CPU’s perfect for a virtual private server environment.

Why SSL is vital for your website

Security Sockets Layer or SSL forms backbone of a secure Internet. It protects all sensitive information as the latter moves across the computer networks of the world. It is vital to protect any website even if the site is not involved in managing sensitive information. SSL offers data integrity, privacy, and critical security for not only websites but for the user’s personal information as well.

 

The principal reason SSL is utilized to keep sensitive information safe when it is sent across the Internet in an encrypted form so that only the recipient can comprehend it. There is a good reason for this. Information sent through the Internet gets bounced from one computer to another until it reaches the destination server.

The computers that are involved in the process could view credit card numbers, passwords and usernames along with other sensitive information in case the message is not SSL certified. When an SSL certificate is present, the information becomes illegible to any person or entity except the server where the information is being sent. Identity thieves and hackers thus do not get access to the information. Continue reading Why SSL is vital for your website
