Ann Arbor, MI – October 20, 2008 – Linux website hosting
provider A2 Hosting
has added Xen VPS
to their web hosting lineup. VPS Hosting is a web hosting environment created by taking a full server and dividing it into multiple, smaller segments called virtual private servers (VPS). A2 Hosting’s VPS packages enable customers to host their site in an environment very similar to dedicated server hosting, but at the fraction of the cost.
Xen is a highly segregated VPS Hosting environment with a well-earned reputation for being very stable. The stability of Xen VPS systems stems from their extreme isolation from one another. Xen VPS's feature hard memory and CPU usage limits so there is zero contention amongst VPS instances for server resources. A2 Hosting customers also have the option to choose the OpenVZ VPS Hosting platform.
A2 Hosting CEO Bryan Muthig commented on Xen’s launch: “Our VPS packages are a very popular product offering. We believe that webmasters will be very excited about the ability to choose between the Xen and OpenVZ platforms. Each environment has specific advantages based on the customer’s technical requirements and knowledge.”
Xen is great for experienced webmasters who require a flexible VPS platform with high levels of control and customizability. Each package is powered by the HyperVM Control Panel for superior hosting control. Specific features include:
* Customizable kernel
* Complete access to iptables for fine-tuned firewall security
* Ability to reload and re-image the VPS at any time
* Full root access
* Boot, shutdown and reboot controls
* Access to install or compile custom software
* Full control over network services running on the VPS
* Port monitoring and IP blocking
In addition to the range of features included, each Xen VPS package is compatible with many popular Linux distributions including Debian, CentOS, Fedora. Gentoo and Ubuntu.
