VPS Hosting vs. Shared Hosting
Why choose a VPS over a traditional shared hosting solution? While there are similarities between the two hosting technologies, there are also several significant differences that make VPS Hosting a superior option as compared to shared hosting.
In order to fully appreciate the extended capabilities that a VPS Hosting solution offers you, a quick review of how they two technologies are similar is helpful. Here is a brief list of their similarities:
Choosing a Forex VPS Hosting provider can be a confusing and uncertain task. There are many factors to consider like choice of operating systems, reliability, connectivity to brokers and the quality and responsiveness of customer support. Many providers try to achieve all of these by offering low-end, cheap forex vps hosting products that fall short in hardware, speed, uptime and failure to provide stellar customer support after the sale. What features will traders hosted by us have that other providers simply can’t compete with?
LNMP is quickly becoming a preferred alternative to traditional LAMP hosting. The driving force behind this popularity is the NGINX (pronounced “engine-ex”) web server platform as opposed to Apache. Why is NGINX preferred over Apache? NGINX is both an incredibly lightweight web server and it has a reputation of tremendous speed. NGINX is fundamentally different from Apache in that it is event-driven whereas Apache is process-driven. As Apache spins up additional processes to handle increased load, NGINX is handling the same load with few processes and with greater cohesion amongst the processes.
How does this benefit the system that is hosting the server? Processes are handled much faster and as a whole, the web server utilizes much less RAM than a traditional LAMP server would require. Less Ram and utilization of the available CPU resources is a winning combination for any server administrator.
Let’s take a look at how to setup a LNMP VPS Hosting server from scratch on the CentOS platform. There are several automated scripts that are available for this but many admins prefer to install the packages themselves so they know exactly what’s being added and configured on their server.

All of our Cloud VPS Hosting plans are fully protected by a multi-tier enterprise firewall and intrustion prevention system. However we understand the need for customers to want to deploy further host-based security measures to further strengthen their windows vps security. Here are some basic security steps we recommend after you have launched your VPSLAND windows cloud vps.
Choose a secure Administrator password. We recommend choosing a password using a password generator tool that consists of random numbers, letters, characters and punctuation. A minimum suggested lenght is 8 characters or more to ensure maximum protection against brute force dictionary attacks.
Configure the Windows firewall to only required services and ports inbound. Disable all unnecessary allowed inbound rules.
Lock down certain Services to YOUR IP. Within your advanced firewall settings, doubleclick your inbound rule for RDP (port 3389), click scope and add your IP address into the “Remote IP Address” section.
Keeping both the operating system and software up to date with the latest versions/hotfixes/patches/updates ensures that any known vulnerabilities are not exploited on your server.
Configure Windows Updates to Check for updates but let me choose when to download and install them.
Take regular backups before running the lastest update, so you can easily roll back if it breaks something.
The Password Policy can be set to define rules on passwords for Windows users, while the Account Lockout Policy defines rules on locking an account after multiple failed passwords entered. This is great for ensuring that all users choose strong password and/or choose new passwords after a specified length of time and also to prevent against brute-force login attempts through Remote Desktop.
Click Start -> Administrative Tools -> Local Security Policy
Double-click Account Policies
Choose either the Password Policy or Account Lockout Policy to start configuring security settings.

Our new product is designed for those who want to easily access Metatrader, not have to worry about accidentally closing their instance or session and want to access it via a web-browser worldwide without having to use remote desktop software.
