We are happy to announce the following new features in SPanel – the all-in-one cloud management platform allowing every website owner to choose between a shared hosting plan and a much more secure and reliable fully managed VPS with a control panel and daily backups while the cost remains the same.View more
After the cPanel price increase and the new account-based pricing model, the hosting industry has been dramatically changed. The most affected by this change are the resellers and web development companies that host their websites themselves. Since SPanel is being developed by ScalaHosting which clients can easily find the demand for branding in SPanel is huge. We have been working hard on introducing branding options so that any SPanel VPS owner can brand the control panel and name it as they wish. This feature is now available and you can change the logo, the login URL and also enter your brand to be displayed in the control panel instead of SPanel. Then you can market it as your own control panel, escape from cPanel, avoid the price increase and have a better and faster hosting solution for your websites.
If you have a reseller account and you consider migrating to SPanel but you are not sure if it will work out for you, feel free to contact us and we will give you a 30-day free trial to test it yourself and decide if you want us to migrate your websites to your own SPanel virtual server with a dedicated IP and resources.View more
The new version of SPanel is being released today delivering innovations that will change the hosting industry and the way websites run online. SPanel is a next generation hosting platform. It is an “all-in-one” solution allowing every website owner to host unlimited websites on their own cloud VPS with a control panel, SShield real-time protection, daily backups and snapshots, managed by experts 24/7/365 at an affordable price. The new SPanel features a user interface, admin interface and a powerful API allowing you to provide access to 3rd parties such as web developers or your own clients to manage their individual hosting accounts. The owner of the server gets access to an administrative interface to create new accounts and manage them, view the server status, load, disk, CPU and RAM utilization, restart services if necessary, suspend/unsuspend accounts and many others. In the new version SPanel supports all major web servers – Apache, Nginx, LiteSpeed Enterprise and OpenLiteSpeed with the last 2 being the fastest in the world for processing both dynamic and static content.View more
It is a known fact that the website speed is crucial nowadays for the ranking in search engines and especially Google. Another known fact is that most website owners are not aware what they need to do to speed up their websites. That’s why we decided to enable gzip compression by default on all servers running the sPanel control panel.View more
Many years have passed without anything major happening in the web hosting industry. The most serious issue for websites in the last 8-10 years remains security and speed. The hosting industry leaders are not working hard enough to develop a solution. Instead, they continue competing on pricing, disk space and other standard features.View more
It has been just 2 weeks since Scala Hosting has switched to the new management platform for the SSD cloud servers. We are now able to deliver more efficient cheap cloud server hosting at an affordable price. That will allow end users to switch from a shared hosting plan to an affordable SSD cloud server pretty easily. With that they will have their own server, root access, full control, more speed, more resources and their web site will load much faster. The advantages of a server compared to a shared hosting plan are many. One of the main benefits is security. By using your own server there will not be other users using the server except you and that is a huge plus in regards to security. In shared hosting what usually happens is that one web site gets compromised and it is used to compromise more web sites on the same server by using local PHP shells or brute force attacks. Having your own server not only increases security but gives you tones of benefits since you are not anymore limited. You have freedom to manage and configure the server per your own needs and requirements. You can’t do that on the shared hosting plan.
It has been more than 3 years since we started offering SSD cloud servers. During that time Scala Hosting has provisioned hundreds of cloud servers in both our datacenters in USA and Europe. We have allocated multiple TB’s of memory and SSD SAN disk space to all of the servers. At the beginning we have started with 1Gbps storage network which we upgraded about a year and a half ago to 10Gbps. That increased the speed of our cloud servers drastically. The cloud hosting services are getting more and more popular. The cloud hosting industry is growing all the time and people are migrating from their traditional dedicated servers to cloud servers to get all the benefits of cloud hosting. They save money, have better reliability and are easy to manage and deploy. Cloud hosting is the future of hosting and in the next couple of years almost everyone who has a web site will be hosting it on a cloud server. To be able to meet the requirements of our customers and our own requirements to provide best cloud hosting services we have to make changes in our infrastructure and management. The software we were using for managing the cloud farm has reached a level not to be able to perform what we need it to do. That’s why we decided to invest thousands of man hours and development in order to configure, implement and deploy a new management platform for our SSD cloud servers.
