Cloud reseller hosting. Is it better?

Cloud reseller hosting. Is it better?

We are asked that question multiple times per day by new customers. The answer to this question depends on many factors – power, speed, reliability, how critical uptime is, how popular web sites you are going to host.

If you are looking to host heavy web sites which require more systems resources to run normally then the cloud reseller hosting plan would be a better choice due to the much more powerful processors used and the much more faster SSD drives.

Your data is safe at Scala Hosting

Your data is safe at Scala Hosting

One of the things which make us different from the other web hosting providers nowadays is backups. We checked what backup options other hosting providers in the industry provide to their clients and we were shocked to see that almost all of them charge extra for backups and they have either daily or weekly backups but not both of them. They charge from $10 to $15 per restore. At Scala Hosting, we give our clients access to their backups so that they can access and restore the data at any time of the day or night. On top of that, we provide it for free. Our shared hosting and power reseller hosting plans include daily, weekly and even monthly backups for free. Our best reseller hosting and VPS hosting plans include daily and weekly backups for free. Dedicated servers can have custom backups. For example, you can decide to have backups for the last 1, 3, 7, 60 or even 90 days. We can perform the backups as per your needs for your dedicated server. We can also do backups hourly. All our backups are stored on remote backup servers with RAID for maximum redundancy and reliability. That allows us to keep your data secure no matter what happens with the server you are using. Our servers are also secured well to avoid severe failures and eventual data loss. All our servers have RAID cards and 4 drives configured to work in RAID10. RAID10 increases the read/write operations so that the web sites of our clients load instantly and also it protects the clients from data loss. RAID10 allows up to 2 hard drives to fail at the same time before the server goes down. All servers are hot-swap which lets us replace failed hard drives without rebooting the server and causing downtime. We know uptime is the most important thing for every web site and that is why we invest a lot of money to have the latest and best hardware which enables us to offer a top quality service.

Why Scala Hosting doesn’t offer unlimited space and bandwidth?

We are getting lots of requests on daily basis for web hosting plans which will offer unlimited web space and bandwidth. The prospective clients say our competitors offer unlimited space and ask us why we don’t offer it. The amount of requests we were getting recently increased so much that we decided to write this article. The reasons not to offer unlimited space and bandwidth hosting at Scala Hosting are many but the most important one is that we don’t want to lie our customers by selling them something which doesn’t exist in the world. The unlimited space drives haven’t been invented yet and the drives available on the market are all limited to some amount of space such as 250GB, 500GB, 1TB, 2TB and so on but there are no drives offering unlimited space. Once such drives are invented we will buy them and start offering the unlimited plans immediately. What most people don’t know is that the companies offering the unlimited hosting plans have so many limitations imposed in their terms of service so none of their clients who paid for the unlimited space can use it in reality. How does that happen? It’s easy. They put a limit on the maximum size of files which can be uploaded and a limit of the number of files and directories which can be created in the account. That makes the owner of the account unable to use the unlimited space which he paid for. Those providers try to attract customers with their unlimited space offer as they can’t attract them with quality of service. Once the client finds out he can’t really use the unlimited space, he gets disappointed but there is nothing unlimited in the world and there is no free lunch. You can’t buy unlimited cheese in the shop for a fixed amount of money. That is why Scala Hosting doesn’t offer unlimited space and bandwidth. We don’t want to lie our clients or offer them misleading web hosting specifications. We prefer to be fair with the customer and provide him with the space, bandwidth and resources he paid for. Along with that, he will also get extraordinary customer service and support which he will never get at a company providing the unlimited lies. We will keep on doing our best to make our clients happy they have chosen Scala Hosting as their web hosting provider. We will continue to increase the value of our services. We will continue to add new services so that our resellers have the broadest variety of services they can offer to their clients.
