These days, there are so many ways to run a website that it can get confusing. Munesh Jadoun from ZNetLive breaks down their vast array of hosting plans, pay-as-you-go services, and security offerings to help you choose the one that best suits your needs.
What hosting plans do you offer?
ZNetLive offers several hosting plans:
Shared hosting: Linux Shared, running the Linux operating system, is the most common shared hosting type that satisfies common requirements of any basic website.
Windows Shared is another type of common shared hosting that uses Windows instead of Linux OS with different software like ASP.net and MSSQL.
WordPress hosting: WordPress hosting is a web hosting service that is optimized especially for the WordPress environment. Our WordPress hosting includes features like SSD accelerated storage, daily backups, latest PHP, automated SSL certificate, FTP access, File Manager, Web Application Firewall and a lot more.
Cloud hosting: Cloud hosting is basically a way of configuring servers, where instead of being constrained by a single server, you can pull resources as needed from multiple servers, getting scalability and cost-effective hosting solution as a result. ZNetLive’s cloud hosting features SSD caching and Google MOD PageSpeed that helps a website perform at ultra-super-fast speeds. Additionally, it comes equipped with DDoS protection and Enterprise grade hardware making it more reliable and highly secure. With all these features coupled with FREE value-added services, ZNetLive is the leading and affordable cloud hosting provider in India.
Virtual Private Servers: Linux VPS Hosting is a type of hosting in which virtualization technology is used to partition a computer virtually into multiple servers. No physical partition is there but because of virtual or software partition, each user is given much more privacy and security as compared to the shared hosting. VPS permits some special scripts’ installation, but it has some limitations as compared to the dedicated servers in terms of resources, mail usage and processes.
Windows VPS Hosting is similar to Linux VPS hosting except that it uses Windows OS and different software like ASP.NET and MSSQL.
Dedicated Servers: Dedicated Hosting grants complete resources and server control to the users. This hosting has nearly zero limitations in terms of CPU usage, email and processes.
