2.1.2. Business hosting
Business hosting is similar to shared hosting, but with guaranteed dedicated resources. When switching from virtual hosting to business hosting, the principle of provision of resources hosting account. On virtual hosting (not business), the hosting account has access to all currently available server resources, but they can only be used for a limited time - no more than 100 processor minutes per day. On business hosting, resources are guaranteed for the hosting account according to the tariff (the number of processor cores, the amount of RAM, the amount of disk space) and they can be used at your discretion in full without time limits - that is, without a processor time limit.
The list of tariffs and their characteristics can be found at order page... When ordering any of the tariffs for the first time, you will receive a free 5-day test period.
Some of the key differences from shared hosting are listed in the table.
|Regular hosting||Business hosting|
|CPU time limit||No more than 100 processor minutes per day||None (the load is limited only by the resources of the selected tariff)|
|Disk space||10 to 30 GB||16 to 144 GB|
|Number of inodes||From 200,000 to 400,000 depending on the tariff||Limited by Linux file system (approximately 1 million inodes for every 16 GB of disk space)|
|PHP parameter value memory_limit||512 to 1536 MB||No more than the amount of RAM in the tariff|
|PHP parameter value max_execution_time||Default 30 seconds, can be increased up to 60 seconds||Can be extended up to 3600 seconds|
|The maximum execution time of scripts launched through cron or SSH||1 hour||4 hours|
|Extra services OPcache, Memcache(d), Redis and Sphinx||Ordered and paid separately||Included in the fare|
|The maximum amount of memory that can be allocated for Redis||512 MB||1/4 of the amount of RAM in the tariff|
|Hosting account location country||Any of available||Ukraine, Germany or USA|
|Available web servers||Only Apache and OpenLiteSpeed||Apache, OpenLiteSpeed, PHP-FPM , Node.js|
|The number of concurrent processes (Entry Process Limit)||50 in the minimum tariff, 100 in the rest||Depends on tariff: 200 (2G), 300 (4G), 400 (6G), 500 (8G), 600 (16G), 700 (32G)|
|Available versions of MySQL||Only 5.7||5.7 or 8.0|
|Maximum execution time for a MySQL query||30 seconds||3 hours|
|Number of tables and database sizes||Each database has no more than 1,000 tables and no more than 2 GB, the total size of all databases no more than 3 GB||Limited only by the amount of disk space in the tariff|
|Number of concurrent connections to MySQL||No more than 50||Depends on tariff: 120 (2G), 180 (4G), 200 (6G), 200 (8G), 400 (16G), 400 (32G)|
|Time threshold for commit slow queries||5 seconds||Adjustable in the range of 0.5-10 seconds|
Cost and payment
- The cost does not depend on the payment period.
- Loyalty program discounts are not provided (in this case, business hosting payments are taken into account in account turnover).
- Backups are handled as virtual hosting.
- Copies are created regardless of the number of inodes used.
Switching to business hosting
You can switch to a business hosting plan by instructions. In this case, the hosting account with all the settings will be automatically transferred to the selected tariff and you do not need to transfer anything manually. After changing the tariff, it usually takes about 15-30 minutes for the changes to take effect.
If after changing the tariff there are difficulties in the operation of the sites of the hosting account, then first of all, you should familiarize yourself with the information about the load and resources consumed by the hosting account on the charts at the bottom of the section. "Hosting" (100 on the CPU graph means full load of one core, 200 - two, and so on). Perhaps the resources of the initially selected tariff were not enough for the normal operation of the hosting account and it is necessary either to increase them by switching to a higher tariff, or to work on optimizing the sites and reducing the load they create in order to fit into the resources of the current tariff.
