VDO is a part of the Vietnam Online Data Joint Stock Company, a company with headquarters based in Hanoi, Vietnam. The hosting firm was established in 2009. Since then, it has grown substantially and today, it boasts of a client base of over 1,000,000 customers in Vietnam and beyond. Its offerings include shared web hosting, server solutions, domain name registration services, and server rentals, among others. The VDO website is only available in Vietnamese.

VDO Vietnam-based data centers are built with redundancy and operate according to international standards. The data centers are Tier III (or higher) compliant and are equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure, including N+1 UPS power systems and strict security measures as well as air conditioners and fire extinguishing systems. This is to ensure safe and reliable web hosting environments.
When you choose VDO, you get to enjoy a lot of benefits for your servers. First, its cloud server systems are developed on cloud computing platforms that help increase the efficiency of the servers. These servers are integrated with VMWare virtualization technology, which comes with a lot of benefits like helping users create their cloud servers quickly as well as easily create backup copies of their website data.
VDO has invested in high-end infrastructure powered by genuine hardware manufacturers such as Dell, HP, Cisco, and IBM. This ensures that it does not only offer reliable hosting solutions but also that it cares about providing guaranteed resources from trusted companies.
I found the VDO website quite overwhelming with a lot of information and website services, making it hard for webmasters to navigate and make an informed decision.
