With Cloud Computing, a VPS is a private, virtual server that exists on a much more powerful physical machine. But unlike shared hosting, you have a guaranteed allotment of system resources that only you have access to.  We built our VPS on Microsoft Azure with Plesk.

Microsoft Azure, commonly referred to as Azure, is a cloud computing service created by Microsoft for building, testing, deploying, and managing applications and services through Microsoft-managed data centers.  It provides software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and supports many different programming languages, tools, and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems.

When your website grows further, you can still upgrade your VPS in term of more core, more RAM, more disk space, faster disk, and faster network.

The upgrade can be performed in a matter of minutes – no migration required.

VPS Auto Scaling can also be configured dynamically to cater for sudden increase or decrease in web traffic.

Plesk is a web hosting server automation software with a control panel developed for Linux and Windows-based retail hosting service providers. Plesk’s user management model is suitable for dedicated and shared hosting, allowing server administrators to set up new websites, reseller accounts, email accounts, and edit and create DNS entries through a web-based interface. Key features and solutions include the automation and management of domain names, email accounts, web applications, programming languages, databases, and infrastructure tasks to provide a ready-to-code environment and strong security across all layers and operating systems.

  • Plesk Web Admin Edition: Up to 10 domains. For basic management of simple websites, without the extended tools and features.
  • Plesk Web Pro Edition: To manage up to 30 domains. It also includes Plesk WordPress Toolkit full-featured.
  • Plesk Web Host Edition: Unlimited domains. The administrator can also create additional reseller accounts.

Plesk has competitors like Cpanel. We chose Plesk because it is more user friendly and can support both Most of Linux and Windows Servers.  Plesk also offer better security options than Cpanel.
