Diskspace (Cloud Storage)
[ DISKSPACE ] is the default amount of SSD Cloud Storage provided for all Websites Hosted within the subscription (Xpress = 10 to 30 or 50 GB & Xtreme = UNLIMITED). Additional Diskspace for the Xpress Plan is $0.50/mo per Gigabyte (GB). Every File / Folder / Database / Email that relates to and/or makes up the Hosted Website(s) uses a certain amount of Diskspace based upon the size and number of such elements. Diskspace can be allocated to specific Websites as desired, as well as, to specific services (i.e. Web, Database, & Email).
Mailboxes (Email Accounts)
[ MAILBOXES ] is the default number of Email Accounts provided for all Websites Hosted within the subscription (Xpress = 10 to 20 Mailboxes & Xtreme = UNLIMITED). Additional Mailboxes for Xpress Plan are $0.20/mo each. Linux Email is via Postfix with RoundCube Webmail & MagicSpam. Linux-Hybrid & Windows Email is via SmarterMail Enterprise with Cyren® Premium Antispam / Zero-Hour Antivirus & optional Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync.
[ WEBSITES ] is the number of independent Websites that can be created for Hosting within the subscription (Xpress = 1 or 2 Websites with the 2nd being an additional $1/mo | Xtreme = UNLIMITED). Each Website created has independent Webspace, custom resource allocation, separate management and control.
Traffic (Data Transfer)
[ TRAFFIC ] is the amount of monthly Data Transfer (Bandwidth) provided for all Websites Hosted within the subscription. Every Website visitor and every Email sent or received results in some amount of Traffic. ViUX provides “UNLIMITED” Traffic for our Shared Cloud Hosting, which means that we do not impose a hard limit on the total amount of Traffic used by Websites, Databases or Email; however there is a practical limit to the total amount of simultaneous Data that can be handled by a Shared Server’s Virtual-NIC Card as generated by (X) number of Websites Hosted on that server. Therefore if it is known that a certain Website will have high-traffic needs, we highly recommend Hosting on a Private Cloud Server.
The Cloud Without Limits
Host an UNLIMITED number of Websites, store as much Data, use as many Mailboxes and as much Traffic as you want – as long as you abide by our Fair Usage Policy.
So what’s the catch?
None really… Use the resources mentioned as “UNLIMITED” as needed – there are NO limits! Just try to keep your Website(s) well optimized and do not overuse the other system resources like CPU and Memory so as to monopolize the server. These are SHARED Servers… For known high resource usage Websites and Web Applications, we highly recommend (and may require) going with our Cloud VPS offering.
Fair Usage Policy
We offer UNLIMITED Cloud so that you do not have to worry about incurring unexpected additional costs for using more Diskspace, or creating an additional Website, or needing another Email Account, etc… However, if you are coming in knowing that you have ultra-high resource needs, then a Shared Server is not the right type of Hosting for you to begin with. If you are asking the question if Shared Hosting is right for you, then it is most likely NOT – in which case you should go with our Private Cloud offering.
