Lightweight FreeBSD VPS Hosting Plan
Perfect general purpose webserver for WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc.
You can turn this FreeBSD Virtual Private Server (VPS) into a perfect general webserver. You can easily install Apache HTTP-server, the MySQL database server and PHP (AMP), the software components you need to turn your VPS in a general purpose webserver. This webserver will run lots of popular software like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal. More information you can find in this article from Alwina’s Blog.
Fast European datacenter
Our servers for these hosting plans are located at a large German datacenter with fast international connectivity. The total bandwith of this datacenter exceeds 180 Gbit/s. A 30 Gbit/s connection to the largest internet exchange in the world: The German Commercial Internet Exchange (DE-CIX) ensures excellent high speed connectivity to all places in the world including USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Singapore, Taiwan and Australia.
Full root control
A Lightweight Virtual Private Server behaves like a heavy-weight VPS but there are some minor limitations. You have no complete control of the operating system and you cannot install other operating systems or “tweek” the kernel. But you do have full root control.
FreeBSD Ports Collections available
You can install all needed software from the FreeBSD Ports Collection (currently containing more than 22.000 applications). The FreeBSD Ports Collection uses Makefiles arranged in a directory hierarchy so that software can be built, installed and uninstalled with the make command. When installing an application, very little (if any) user intervention is required after issuing a beginning command such as make install or make install clean in the ports directory of the desired application. In most cases the software is automatically downloaded from the Internet, patched and configured if necessary, then compiled, installed and registered in the package database. If the new port has needed dependencies on other applications or libraries, these are installed beforehand automatically.
Based on FreeBSD jails
This Lightweight VPS hosting is based on FreeBSD’s jail baised virtualization support. This type of VPS is very cost effective and easy manageable. It behaves just similar as a heavyweight VPS. Each jail is a virtual environment running on the host machine with its own files, processes, users and superuser accounts. Each jail is sealed from the others.
