Virtualmin 6 coming

We are currently rolling out Virtualmin Version 6 to our servers. Version 6 will allow some important new changes to our hosting environment.  Note that these changes and improvements are not immediately available, but will be possible in the next few months due to the new Virtualmin release. Some of these upcoming changes include:

  • VPS and Dedicated servers will be able to run PHP under PHP-FPM rather than FCGID.  This will allow for better cache sharing and performance. Shared servers will continue to use FCGID since that will allow us to let you enable different PHP versions for different websites.
  • Some improvements in the backup environment
  • Virtualmin secure certificates per domain, allowing us to get rid of the secure certificate errors on the control panel.
  • Chroot jails - increased security, particularly for shared hosting clients.

More on all of this as we roll the features out over the next few months.  For the time being, we're just laying the groundwork. 

Hosting Plans

VPS - 4 gig

This is a larger VPS system suitable for a CMS-based site that handles more traffic or needs more capability. You get your own VPS with 4 Gbyte of dedicated memory, root access, and 60 Gbytes of storage.  Beyond those limits it's yours to do anything you want. Free optimized Cloudflare available.

VPS - 2 gig

This is a larger VPS system suitable for a CMS-based site that does not have big requirements. You get your own VPS with 2 Gbyte of dedicated memory, root access, and 40 Gbytes of storage.  Beyond those limits it's yours to do anything you want. Free Optimized Cloudflare available.

VPS - 1 gig

This is a small VPS system suitable for a CMS-based site that does not have big requirements. You get your own VPS with 1 Gbyte of dedicated memory, root access, and 16 Gbytes of storage.  Beyond those limits it's yours to do anything you want. Free Optimized Cloudflare available.

The Half-Acre

The Half-Acre hosting plan is unusual. It's a hosting plan that is shared, but can be used happily for reasonable-sized Drupal sites, and will perform well. Our PHP memory allocation is fairly generous (and can be configured by you in the control panel). This hosting plan will give you a great start for developing a Drupal or larger Wordpress site. As with all of our plans, this includes many Drupal tools, including git, composer, and more. You can run your site under PHP 5.3, 5.5, or 7.0  and set that easily in the control panel. Free Optimized Cloudflare available.

The Garden Plot

The Garden Plot is our smallest hosting plan.  It's a great choice if you have a low-volume CMS-based site (Drupal, Wordpress, or Joomla) or a static web site. You may not want the Garden Plot if you are going to have heavy traffic, will be needing large amounts of memory for PHP, or need to be able to configure things heavily. With this package you cannot change your php.ini file, and it is the only one of our packages that has a cap on bandwidth per month. But it's a great starting point.

The 8 Special!

This is our latest plan. It's a special Drupal 8 oriented shared hosting plan. We guarantee that a Drupal 8 site will run successfully on this plan (assuming it does not have unusually big demands or very heavy traffic.) Free Optimized Cloudflare available.

PHP 5.4, 5.6, and 7.0 available.  You select PHP version from the Virtualmin control panel.
