keep you ahead of your competition. Since this acts like
a true dedicated server, you are also free to add any software
you would like at any time.
What is a Virtual Private Server?
Virtual Private Servers are the most advanced step in
server virtualization technology. They are used to partition
a single physical server into many (as many as 1000) isolated
virtual private servers. Each virtual private server looks
and behaves exactly like a real networked server system,
complete with its own set of init scripts, users, processes,
What Applications could be run within the Virtual Private
Most applications that require root level access can
be installed within your Virtual Private Server without
any modifications. Applications and services do not have
to be aware of Virtuozzo as they will act as though they
are being installed on a true dedicated server.
What does control panel does each VPS come with?
You will have your choice between Ensim, Plesk or cPanel.
You can also choose to not have any control panel installed
if you wish.
Which VPS enabling software do you run?
WebIntellects uses Parallels Virtuozzo software to power
our VPS offerings. Virtuozzo is the world's most popular
platform for Virtual Private Servers (VPS). It is the
only real VPS solution available, providing carrier-grade
levels of reliability and scalability, proven with tens
of thousands of Virtual Private Servers (VPSs) in production
use. Virtuozzo is the only solution that is designed specifically
for carrier-grade servers.
What happens when my VPS starts using too many resources?
If your usage grows to a point that your VPS begins to
slow or your services are not operating as fast as they
use to, then you have a few options. One, your can request
to have your VPS upgraded to the next plan up. This will
guarantee your VPS will receive more resources to operate
your sites and applications. You can also have your VPS
upgraded to a full dedicated server. This can be done
seemlessly without any downtime.
Will I have full root access?
Yes, you will have full root access to your VPS. You
may install any software or applications on your virtual
private server you choose. Root access is one of the greatest
benefits of a virtual private server. Unlike many host
who falsely advertise 'full' root access, WebIntellects
VPSs are given true root access.
Can I host multiple domains with my VPS?
Each VPS is set up to host unlimited domains. The only
thing limiting the number you can host is your space available
and your resource use.
Is there a difference between a VDS and a VPS?
No. There is no difference between a Virtual Dedicated
Server (VDS) and a Virtual Private Server (VPS.) Some
hosting companies choose to call it a VDS and others like
WebIntellects choose to call it a VPS.
Is my VPS managed by WebIntellects?
No. All VPSs are fully self serviced.
How many IPs are included with my VPS?
All VPSs come with 3 IP addresses by default. One for
your server and two for your own private name servers.
You can request additional IPs at $1.00/mo/IP.
Can I host Adult Content & IRC on my VPS?
No. IRC is not allowed on our network and we do not allow
adult content on VPS solutions. You will need a full dedicated
to host adult content.
What is the difference between VPS Hosting and Shared/Virtual
With shared/virtual hosting you share your space, resources,
applications and environment with sometimes hundreds of
other users. This configuration can allow any issues to
a single site to affect the performance and security of
anyone else on the same server. A VPS is divided into
multiple isolated environments. Each VPS has it's own
server software and provides autonomy for each website.
Any issues to a site would only affect that VPS and not
any other site(s) on the same server. As with a true dedicated
server, each VPS has it's own independent operating system
with it's own web server, mail server, and any installed
Can I run my own DNS on my VPS?
Yes, by default your VPS will include three dedicated
IP Addresses. One is for your server and the other two
are for your own private name servers. An example is ns1.yourdomain.com
Can I request to have Plesk Add-ons installed onto my
Yes. We support all Plesk Add-ons with your VPS. This
includes the Tomcat JSP, Application Vault, Trouble Ticket,
PostGRES and SpamAssassin Add-ons. Additional fees may
How many databases can I have with my VPS?
You can have as many databases and connections you need.
It is your VPS which acts just like a true dedicated server.
Your database will be completely secure and can be managed
with PHP, SSH, and/or myPHPadmin. As your database grows
you can always increase your service plan to include more
