If you’re outgrowing your web hosting or simply want more control, a Windows VPS (Virtual Private Server) is the next logical choice for your hosting needs. It gives you more freedom with root access, plus you can install an SSL certificate, as well as any type of software – all without the responsibility of a physical dedicated server.
On a shared server, you rely on the performance of the platform provided. By choosing Windows VPS, you get to select a configuration best suited for your applications, requirements and growth.
A VPS allows you to host sites (storefront, e-commerce, content, media) and software applications (primarily web: portal, extranet, collaborative solutions, wiki, CRM) with ease. Unlike shared hosting, Windows VPS hosting allows multiple applications to be isolated from one another within the same container. While this VPS container shares physical resources (infrastructure) with other containers, its resources are dedicated to you.
Anybody with some technical skills; this is especially true for managed Windows VPS hosting. Required admin skills include access, file transfer, and configuration. We continue to develop more tools and features that will make it even easier to manage your server environment.
If you’re a current M2host shared hosting customer, our team can provide insights and share best practices for your migration. We also provide a paid migration service. Otherwise, it's up to you to migrate your data and applications onto the Windows VPS and reconfigure the DNS.
DDoS attacks (Distributed Denial of Service) are attacks that paralyze web servers or even entire networks. They are more dangerous than DoS attacks, as they often attack whole botnets and block services with continuous requests. M2host will protect you from this with just $25 /month and will ensure to have strong DDoS protection which secures both you and your data if you are attacked. Our VPSServer DDoS protection consists of three levels: using firewall rules we block extremely high traffic from specific regions. Our self-developed DDoS protection systems examine every request for 23 characteristics, which prove their authenticity. The third safety level works at the application level: using mod security rules, all dangerous traffic is filtered, so your systems are not effected by them.
With our VPS we only provide Hardware Level assistance. We do the initial standard OS install and hand over the VPS to you after which you will need to install any software that you seem necessary. We don’t maintain 3rd party software products.
You can check your invoices by logging in Client Portal. M2host will also email you an invoice usually 10 days before the renewal date but there is no guarantee that email will reach you successfully due to the nature of spam or other issues. Please make sure the payment proof is received at least 4 days before the renewal date as it takes few days to apply payment. This will make sure service interruption is avoided.
