cPanel is specially optimized for the VPS meaning less resources are required for system needs with little or no damage to the functionality of the panel itself.

Why should you choose a VPS with cPanel:

  • Simplicity and convenience

Information about all important system events and possible issues is sent to the administrator in a form of notifications.
    For analytics, you can make use of the built-in statistical analysis programs: Webalizer, Analog Stats and AWStats.
  • Integration and scalability
    With the help of cPanel/WHM you can deploy your website in the shortest time possible as well as to install and manage third party modules: Apache, Perl, Wordpress, FTP server, mail server, etc.

Activities of HOSTKEY are mainly regulated by Dutch and Russian legislation.

With respect to certain content, the legislation in these countries is more lenient in comparison to the legislation in some other countries, i.e. USA. The differences mainly relate to the requirements for the information posted. Different countries have different instruments of legal regulation. From this perspective, we can talk about some kind of conventional offshore zone for VPS.

On one hand, HOSTKEY is not suitably qualified to evaluate the content placed on our virtual or cloud servers.

On the other hand, we promptly respond to fraudulent activities originating from our network, or activities that negatively affect our customers or Internet users as a whole.

For all cloud services, two types of backup are used:
  • Technological backup. It is carried out by HOSTKEY and is used for technological purposes only, meaning data recovery in case of failure of the physical hardware, on which cloud services are based.
    On VPS — in case of physical hardware failure virtual server will be restored from a backup on a different physical server. It only takes a few minutes.
    On VDS — technological backup is carried out on separate VPS containers, which are used for VDS.
    Technological backup of Managed cloud is not being performed.
    Data from the technological backup cannot be shared with the client.
  • Backups. Client can setup cloud server backup and its schedule himself. In this case, backup of individual virtual servers will be created.
    With Managed Cloud all VPS can be backed up or only certain ones according to the list specified by the client.
    When required, you can manually restore the desired data from the backup.
    Backups are stored independently from the cloud servers. You need to get additional disk space to store backups.
The responsibilities for the proper functioning of services are split mainly between the client and HOSTKEY.

HOSTKEY is responsible for:
  • Operability of the physical hardware.
  • Correct configuration of software when the software installation was performed by HOSTKEY employees. In case of software bugs, software developers are responsible for their correction.
  • Equipment accessibility on HOSTKEY network.
Client is responsible for:
  • Administering the server(s).
  • Content placed.
  • Timely payment for the services.
  • Elimination of the situations that can directly or indirectly cause harm to HOSTKEY’s scope of activities.
