Monthly update July

Better CPU performance

Hereby we want to inform you that recently we changed the specification of several VPS plans.

We increased the amount of cores on the 3GB and 4GB plan. We noticed that several customers are running applications that requires more CPU performance. More Cores means more CPU performance. The servers are directly available on our VPS plans page.

New templates

CentOS released a new version. This version is now available as a template on our platform in all locations. The template can be deployed on all available plans.

Coming soon

There will me some new templates available on short notice. As example pre-installed WordPress servers. There are also plans to deploy new locations in Asia. Keep in touch!

Asia VPS locations are coming soon

Asia VPS

We are thrilled to inform you that we are going to open brand-new VPS locations in Asia. Several new locations are on our 2017 roadmap. These sites will provide a low latency VPS connection in almost all of Asia. Our goal is to open the VPS's to the public in Q3 of 2017.

The new sites in Asia will be:
- Singapore
- Hong Kong
- Tokyo

We noticed that there is a high demand from our customers to deploy a server in the Asia region. Many of our visitors are from this area and want to deploy a server nearby.

The new server sites provide you the standard high-quality service, 24/7 helpdesk (including live support) and other high-performance features you have been expecting from us. We noticed that there is a high demand from our customers to deploy a server in the Asia region.

New York VPS location upgrade

We are thrilled to announce that also our New York servers have been upgraded. With this update, we have increased our capacity and performance. On top of that, we use a state of the art storage technique which makes your data extra secure. The demand of new VPS’s in New York is high, with this upgrade we increased the capacity and performance tremendously.

New York VPS

Last week we also upgraded our London platform. This upgrade has the same hardware as we use in New York. We are expanding our datacenters worldwide to meet the needs of our customers.

The hardware upgrade has several new features which all will improve the performance of your VPS. Below we explain some of these functions.

Network connection

Our network now has a 10Gbit uplink connection on all servers. The total capacity of our network is 40Gbit which is simply amazing! You can test this via our speed test on https://www.vpsserver.com/new-york/.

3-Way storage

With this new software-defined storage called “3-way storage” your data is protected in the best way possible. This storage technique stores your data on 3 different servers simultaneously. In the case of any error, there are always 2 other servers that keep your data secure!

Server specification

We use Dell technology on all our Hypervisors. These are equipped with Intel E5-2690 Series Processors. This series is one of the best performing CPU available on the market. To keep your server fast and reliable DDR4 RAM memory is used.

Test our new platform and experience blazing fast Virtual services!

London VPS location improvements

Recently we upgraded the hardware in the datacenter in London VPS. Because of the tremendous demand, we ran out of additional capacity. For this reason, we upgraded the platform and hardware. This upgrade has the following benefits:

London VPS location

Setup

For the new configuration, we use state of the art Dell Hypervisors equipped with Intel E5-2690 series. These processors are one of the best performing CPUs on the market. On top of that, the servers are equipped with DDR4 Memory slots.

Network

All servers have a dual 1Gbit uplink for blazing fast internet connection. We use Mellanox Networking technology. With this technique, the network has an incredible capacity of 40Gbit.

Storage

Most VPS providers use RAID-storage; we don’t!

In our fully equipped setups, we use 3-way storage. Storing all your data on three servers simultaneously. If any failure were to occur, your data remains safe!

What to know about search engines?

If you're a developer, then you'll already be au fait with the tools of the trade - from coding language through to hosting protocols and VPS Server solutions - but how much do you know about search engines? Essentially we want to know just one thing - what is it that search engines look for when ranking content? After all, your clients will happily pay big money to get their search terms to the top of the listings.

Search engines are a complex beast. Not only do they have the seemingly miraculous ability to predict what you are searching for on the strength of just a few typed letters, but they can also return millions of relevant terms in an instant. But how?

Essentially, the following occurs:

1. Every search result is painstakingly codified, collated and analysed in anticipation of common queries. Much of this is done using extreme high technology, but search engine companies also hire large numbers of SEO specialists to provide human context and sense checking.

2. Vast supercomputers process algorithms, endlessly trawling the internet to seek out updates and changes to content.

3. At the same time, they measure time to load and look to assess the more subjective aspects that content is ranked against, such as its inherent quality - based on factors such as language, originality, linking and so forth.

4. The findings are collated into a site index that is relevant to each set of keywords, and which is instantly ready for display at the touch of a search.

Now, every search engine will carry out this process in a unique way according to the company behind the technology. The exact make-up of each algorithm is kept tightly under lock and key to avoid any corporate IP theft, as well as workarounds or black hat cheating tactics from websites looking to jump up the rankings using spurious means.

This was previously a problem, as flaws in earlier ranking algorithms meant that black hat techniques such as keyword stuffing and link farms were rife. These are effectively attempts to defraud the results of search engines.

The need to keep ahead of such behaviour also explains why the underlying search algorithms are always changing. However, this makes it even harder to keep abreast of how websites are scored, and to know how to match your website to precise requirements in order to optimise its placement.

So what factors place a website?

There are hundreds of different elements which a search engine will use to score a website for a search term. These include:

1. Keywords

The holy grail, in terms of usage and their density. The element of keyword strategy is called SEO - although search engine optimisation as a practice is far more comprehensive and complex than simply ensuring that key phrases and words are used on a website page.

The best way to make a website relevant for a page query is to make sure the content features terms that viewers are likely to search for. The other vital aspect is content volume and quality - there should be a good amount of regularly updated, high-quality content which is authoritative in nature.

2. Backlinks

This supports the 'authoritative' content angle. Websites which have a number of external backlinks within their content will be seen as knowledgeable and authoritative. This explains why in the bad old days of SEO, there were so many link farms which simply existed to add in vast amounts of links. Today, associations with these websites is extremely damaging and can render websites blacklisted. However, legitimate linking strategies are highly valuable and can greatly improve page rankings.

3. Loading speed

One of the newer measurement factors is speed of loading - because of the increased use of mobile user traffic. Algorithms now assess how long it takes for a website page to load, knowing that more users will be accessing it via a phone or tablet. Fast sites are ranked by preference for being mobile friendly - so developers will need to code and build in features that support fast loading speeds. This ties in with evolving website design and build trends that include single page scrolling templates, flat design, the use of video and so forth. Use of the right VPS Server will greatly impact speed of loading times, as you will not need to share your data speeds with other users and can buy in custom features and specifications that suit your website needs. Find out more at VPS.

4. On-page optimisation

Metadata text has always been mysterious, but there are now packages such as Yoast with WordPress that make it simple. For developers who want to understand what's important here, metadata text appears in URLs, page heads and image captions, and gives search engine servers another means of assessing the contents of a web page. Again, the more popular the search term, the more likely the page will score highly.

5. Age

The older the website, the more trustworthy it will be judged to be by the search engine. If your website is established and updated regularly, it will score particularly highly. Google results also show when a page was last updated, to provide the user with an extra cue to inform their click choice.

6. Top level domain

Once there was only really .com or .co.uk to consider. Today there are more than one thousand of these top level domains - or TLDs - on offer. When a search is carried out, domains which are specific within a country will be given preference to those in-country geographical searches - but ranked lower for overseas searches. Websites that are looking to build up a global readership are advised to pick a TLD that isn't geographic (avoid the .co.uk for instance).

Remember also that the server that the website is hosted on must be fit for purpose, offer sufficient size speeds and data, and be reliable, with an extremely small degree of published downtime. A VPS server offers benefits to websites and businesses that want access to technical expertise, custom set-ups and advanced features, security, fast speeds and maximum operational uptime.

Five advantages of VPS

Five advantages of VPS

Over the last few years, there has been a revolution in server technology thanks to the increased popularity of virtual private server (VPS) hosting. Here are five reasons why VPS has gone from strength to strength:

More stable and reliable

VPS technology has a clear advantage in stability and reliability. If you are hosting on a shared server, you may find that your website’s performance is negatively affected by other users, and if anything happens to that server, your site will suffer. With a VPS, your site will not be exposed to the performance problems associated with shared servers.

Greater control

With a VPS package, you have total root access to your server environment. Shared servers are usually optimised for performance and put limits on the software packages that you can use, but VPS users are free to upgrade or change to new software. You won't have to wait for a host company to support the package, enabling you to tailor your site to your precise needs.

Greener

VPS hosting is one way that you can help reduce your carbon footprint, while benefitting from the advantages of an individual server. Unlike a dedicated server hosting, which uses a server’s full power consumption for just one user, a VPS is effectively one large dedicated server divided into individual virtual environments, sharing the server’s power resource.

Easy scalability

If you hope to grow your new website, you want to be able to scale the hosting resource you use, with minimal disruption. With VPS, your hosting environment can easily be allocated more or fewer resources as required. For instance, if you are getting a surge of visitors and you want to upgrade your RAM, this can be done at the touch of a button. With traditional dedicated server hosting, the extra RAM would have to be physically installed by a technician.

Cost effective

The cost of VPS hosting has dropped dramatically over the last few years, and that trend is likely to continue. This means that VPS is now an option for small companies and private individuals, who want a reliable, stable hosting environment.

Firewall functionality improved


The new firewall functions are now available in the control panel of every server. You can manage your own firewall settings within the user friendly service page. Login and select Manage your server to setup your firewall restrictions.

The most common used firewall settings are port and internet access related. We advice everyone with a VPS to setup their firewall. Make sure you secure your server and prevent any unauthorized access. Firewall is free in usage and available for all customers.

Have a look at the new interface and make sure your firewall settings are setup right! Feel free to contact our support of you have any questions.

New 3GB plan available

3GB plan


This week we launched a new plan with 3GB Memory, this is now available to the public. You can order this plan on all locations. The specs of the VPS plan will be:

$30
3GB Ram
4 Cores
125GB SSD Storage
4TB Transfer

We noticed that there is a large gap between the 2GB and 4GB plan. For this reason we decided to create a new plan with 3GB of Ram. You can use this Plan to deploy your Linux VPS or Windows VPS.

If you have any questions about this plan, feel free to contact us!
