Skyhost VPS cloud hosting

Unlike traditional VPS hosting infrastructures, Skyhost is built on top of our high-speed cloud allowing additional resources (CPU, RAM) to be added in real time upon request. The cloud also adds additional redundancy to our VPS hosting as resources are pooled together from multiple pieces of hardware vs. one single dedicated server. We also do not use traditional hard drives but rather solid-state drives (SSD) that don’t have moving parts and offer much better performance. Each one of our VPS instances comes with 5,000GB (5TB) of monthly bandwidth. All inbound bandwidth is free hence the 5TB is only outbound bandwidth

What makes Skyhost Kenya VPS hosting different?

Many of the "big hosting" brands are still deploying Virtual Private Servers using virtualization software on an old school dedicated server. This means they have one physical server, with spinning hard disks, RAM, etc. and use software to deploy multiple Virtual Private Servers. If just one of the many hardware pieces in the machine fails, it can send the entire parent server offline, crashing all the "child" or "virtual server" instances. If you need to add resources to your virtual instance, they have to ensure they have enough RAM/Disk Space on the machine in order to re-image and allow you to have access. Sometimes this requires taking the entire machine offline and adding them. All of this leads to unwanted downtime, decreased redundancy, and lack of scalability. Our entire platform has been built to solve this situation and provide the highest quality VPS Hosting in the industry: 100% True Cloud Web Hosting - All of our VPS Hosting packages are deployed on top of our high speed cloud. We don't rely on any single piece of hardware to power your VPS. Instantly Scalable - If you need to add more CPU power, RAM, or disk space, it can be done with a couple clicks of a mouse and minimal downtime (for a couple quick reboots). 99.9% Uptime - Since none of our VPS Hosting packages are relying on a single piece of hardware and we have multiple upstream providers we're able to offer a highly redundant solution for your business. SSD Raid 10 Storage - We don't use cheap SATA or other hard drives with moving parts that are known to fail! All of our VPS Hosting packages use Solid State Drives protected by Raid 10. This means that not only is your data being read/written extremely fast, it's also automatically being replicated to another drive incase of a failure. Fully Managed - Don't know how to do important software and kernel updates? Our Superhero Support team manages all aspects of your Operating System including critical updates and patching to ensure your server is up-to-date and patched for the latest security threats. CentOS 7 - All of our VPS Hosting packages come standard with CentOS 7. A free, enterprise-class, community-supported, Linux distribution. This is the operating system of choice for many very large organizations that will ensure maximum efficiency of your server.

HOW VPS SERVERS WORK

vps hosting in kenya

Virtual Private Server (VPS)

One physical machine virtualized into server "sub" machines. Each virtual server is used to have guaranteed resources. Multiple websites/businesses share on physical machine.



Cloud Web Hosting

Cloud computing allows multiple physical machines to act as one system. Therefore with Cloud Web Hosting, visitors aren't accessing just one machine. They're accessing several instantaneously. More resources such as disk space, RAM, and computing power, can be added on the fly. Backups can be spun up instantly and websites can migrate seamlessly.

VPS SERVER FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The best VPS server should be secure, reliable and most importantly scalable to allow you to add computing resources as your business grows

A virtual private server (VPS) is a virtual machine that runs its own copy of an operating system, and customers may have superuser-level access to that operating system instance, so they can install almost any software that runs on that OS. For many purposes they are functionally equivalent to a dedicated physical server, and being software-defined, are able to be much more easily created and configured. They are priced much lower than an equivalent physical server, but as they share the underlying physical hardware with other VPSs, performance may be lower, and may depend on the workload of other instances on the same hardware node.
