Performance

Performance i PerformanceThe performance that each Virtual Server (VPS) provides is determined by the size of dedicated CPU and RAM resources.

RAM guaranteed i RAM guaranteedThe guaranteed RAM is that share of the RAM of the host server that is reserved for your vServer. The guaranteed RAM is reserved for the sole use by your Virtual Server.
2 GB 4 GB 8 GB
RAM dynamic i RAM dynamicIn addition to the guaranteed RAM capacity you can use dynamic RAM capacity on your host server up to the specified maximum value. This increases the total RAM capacity and helps to ease short-term VPS peak loads.
4 GB 8 GB 16 GB
HDD hard disks i HDD hard disksDepending the package you choose, you will get a specific amount of storage space for your data which you can use to store your website files as well as any databases that you may have. Some of the available storage space is already used by the existing system. With these products, the disk space indicated is available to you by default in a RAID 10 array. This guarantees high data security and a considerably faster write/read speed, since data access and data storage in a RAID10 array extends over at least four hard disks.

Operating system

CentOS i CentOSCentOS (Community ENTerprise Operating System) is a Linux distribution based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) from Red Hat and is binary compatible with it. The distribution is supervised, maintained and developed by an open group of voluntary developers. We offer this operating system with or without Parallels® Plesk Interface.
Debian 7 i Debian 7Debian is a free operating system (OS) for your Virtual Server package that uses the Linux operating system kernel. Please note that we offer the Debian OS (Squeeze) only without the administration software Plesk.
Ubuntu 12.04 i Ubuntu 12.04The operating system Ubuntu is a free Debian based Linux distribution which has become ever more popular over the last few years. You can use Ubuntu with or without the administration software Plesk.
Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter 64bit i Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter 64bitOur virtual servers are also running with the Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter 64bit operating system. This allows you to manage your server in different ways. Windows Server 2008 RS is easy to use and comes with advanced security features.

Fixed IP addresses i Fixed IP addressesDepending on the chosen Virtual Server package you have the opportunity to apply for 2 to 8 additional IP addresses. For the issue of IP addresses a once-off setup fee is charged, depending on the number of IP addresses. Should you require further IP addresses, you can apply for them after ordering through the Host Europe customer information system. The application approval takes place according to the RIPE policies.

Automatic migration i Automatic migrationThanks to virtualisation we can execute performance upgrades to Virtual Servers without manual migration. This means that if you change to a larger product you do not have to set up the system again. Your data/data structure as well as all system settings are transferred automatically to your new product.
Root permission i Root permissionYou have unrestricted access with full root rights to your server and the system configured on it. Thus you are able to install updates, replace software, create additional users with their own access rights etc.
SSH access i SSH accessVia SSH you have direct access with root rights to your Linux vServer . Thus you are able to install updates, exchange software, create additional users with their own access rights etc. Please note that these rights may have system-based restrictions. Secure Shell or SSH is the name for a network protocol as well as the respective programmes that enable the establishing of a secure encrypted network connection. This method is frequently used to open a remote command line locally and direct entered commands to the server.
Branded hardware i Branded hardwareAll virtual server systems (VPS) are hosted on powerful branded servers with the most up-to-date Intel® Multi-Core technology which helps us provide you with optimum robustness and performance.
Traffic flat rate i Traffic flat rateThe traffic resulting from this is included in all Virtual Server (VPS) packages. For vServer, Host Europe Suisse guarantees a peak bandwidth if 100 Mbit/s. If you continually exceed 50 Mbit/s on average per week for used bandwidth we reserve the right to restrict the bandwidth to 50 Mbit/s. We may lift the restrictions after consultation with the customer.
VNC remote administration i VNC remote administrationManage your server via an IP connection, even when the operating system has failed. This feature is included with our Root Servers.

Monitoring and Backup

Monitoring i MonitoringIn order to detect and remedy failures, it is essential to monitor your vServer. We monitor up to 10 services and ports every 30 minutes and will make sure to notify you in case of an emergency by SMS, fax or e-mail. Max. 5 SMS/faxes per day. The Monitoring Silver package is included in all VPS (Virtual Private Server) packages.
Daily data backup i Daily data backupFor virtual servers with Linux-based operating system we use a dynamic incremental backup, which means that the backup service decides according to the amount of changes whether to execute a full or an incremental backup. In an incremental backup we will only backup the the data that hasn’t changed since the previous backup. With a daily backup, you have the option of retroactively restoring a former version for up to 14 days.
Snapshots i SnapshotsExecute your own snapshot backup of your vServer at any time. Snapshot backups create a copy of your server's complete file structure which allows you to restore a previous version in case of a faulty software installation – it's simple and easy. The Snapshot Backup is stored for 12 weeks from the time of the backup and is then deleted.
One Snapshot is included in the package. Further Snapshots can be added during the order process for CHF 5.00/month each. You can order additional Snapshots any time via our customer information system (CIS).
Permanent Snapshots i Permanent SnapshotsThe Permanent Snapshot Backup is saved indefinitely. For an explanation of this feature see the previous "Snapshots" feature.
optional optional optional
FTP Backup i FTP BackupBack up specific files or entire directories regularly and automatically to an external storage solution. For access via FTP you will need to enter the IP you wish to use for access. Your FTP backup will be set up using an admin tool such as Parallels® Plesk Panel or your own scripts.
optional optional optional

Domain & DNS administration

Domain registration & management as domain reseller i Domain registration & management as domain resellerWhile ordering your package you can also register a domain easily via our customer information system (CIS) and connect it to your vServer.
Your own fixed IP addresses i Your own fixed IP addressesEach virtual Server includes a fixed IP address. This opens up additional opportunities such as including your own SSL certificate for your internet presence. Depending on your chosen package you can apply for additional IP addresses. A once-off setup fee is charged, depending on the number of IP addresses you order. Should you require further IP addresses, you can apply for them after ordering through the Host Europe customer information system. The application approval takes place according to the RIPE policies.
