Dedicated Server

Dedicated hosting is a website hosting environment that provides the highest level of resource allocation, privacy, and control. Dedicated servers are completely isolated from one another, so users get full access to configure their server anyway they want without affecting another user or being affected by the actions of other users.
Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) is a means for storing data on multiple hard disks, then linking the disks so that the operating system on your server views them as a single entity. We offer RAID-1 with our Windows dedicated server hosting. This RAID method of data storage is known as mirroring. Data is written to at least two disks, which offers a high degree of data security, but incurs a slight performance decrease due to capturing data on two disks.
Dedicated servers are fully-managed, business class servers. They are perfect for resource-heavy apps and giant websites. With a dedicated server, you have full control over how to configure your hosting environment making it perfect for major hosting needs.
Control, privacy, and guaranteed resources are the primary benefits of both VPS hosting and Dedicated hosting. However Dedicated servers are not shared with any other users, so the performance of a Dedicated server customer’s website is stable and predictable. Customers with high traffic websites are often the best fit for Dedicated hosting.

VPS Server

VPS stands for “Virtual Private Server” and is a type of virtual server service that’s offered by major web hosting companies. In short, VPS hosting is the virtual part of a real-life server machine that has been partitioned into smaller virtual servers to emulate and virtualise real server processes. This means each VPS is powered by its own dedicated software called an operating system (OS). Users are able to get full root (superuser) access to it, allowing them to install or configure the software according to their wants and needs.
What makes VPS hosting for Linux unique is that users are guaranteed the resources on their VPS web hosting account. This means that the user’s account will always be allocated the set amount of RAM, CPU, and Disk Space that they have chosen, regardless of what other users on the server are doing. This ensures a higher level of stability and better performance of your website. Since the Operating System is not shared by others, you also get to enjoy a higher level of security for your website files.
Yes, you can upgrade your VPS hosting packages at any time. Our VPS hosting service is super scalable, which allows businesses to utilise VPS hosting for Linux according to their needs.
Getting started with a managed VPS hosting is easy with viper as your VPS hosting provider. All you have to do is, choose from our hosting packages based on the amount of resources your website needs and follow the sign-up instructions. You can easily scale our services as your business grows.
A snapshot allows you to create an image of your server that can be restored at that point in time. This process is quick and efficient and might sound similar to backup, but snapshot files are stored on the Viper cloud environment while backup files are not.

Desktop-as-a-service

Desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) is a form of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) in which the VDI is outsourced and handled by a third party. Also called hosted desktop services, desktop-as-a-service is frequently delivered as a cloud service along with the apps needed for use on the virtual desktop.
Desktop as a service (DaaS) is a cloud computing offering in which a third party hosts the back end of a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployment. With DaaS, desktop operating systems run inside virtual machines on servers in a cloud provider's data center.
A virtual desktop is a computer operating system that does not run directly on the endpoint hardware from which a user accesses it. ... Many other vendors offer products and services to help IT professionals deploy, manage, secure and optimize virtual desktops.

On the other hand, high costs could be seen as a disadvantage, but can be avoided if a provider is found who communicates real prices without hidden usage charges. And an unstable internet connection of course results in poor performance.

Shared Hosting

Virtual private server hosting (or shortly VPS hosting) is a virtual server service that is provided by major web hosting companies. VPS hosting is a virtual part of a real-life server machine that is partitioned into smaller virtual servers in order to emulate and virtualize real servers. Each VPS runs its own software, called operating system (OS) and in most cases users get full root (superuser) access to it and are able to install and run mostsoftware with no restrictions in OS level.
Users are guaranteed the resources on their VPS web hosting account. This means that your account will always be allocated the set amount of RAM, CPU, and Disk Space you’ve chosen regardless of what other users on the server are doing. This allows for greater stability and performance of your website. You also do not share the Operating System with any other users, providing better security for your website files.

A snapshot enables you to quickly create an image of your server that can be restored at that point in time. This might sound similar to backup, but snapshot files are stored on viper cloud environment; backup files are not.

Drupal Hosting

Drupal is content management software. It's used to make many of the websites and applications you use every day. Drupal has great standard features, like easy content authoring, reliable performance, and excellent security. But what sets it apart is its flexibility; modularity is one of its core principles.
Technically speaking, both WordPress and Drupal are made to be equally secure as CMS solutions. However, due to the way websites are built, customized and extended on each platform, many users will say that Drupal wins the security battle. However, it's not the core of WordPress that is at the core of the problem.
The disconnect is that Drupal is not a Content Management System (CMS), nor has it been one for some time. Drupal is a Content Management Framework (CMF), from which you can build a CMS tailored specifically for your needs.
Drupal is not just a frond end or backend.It is system to manage your content with in built templating engine . Even you can use drupal as service to store your content and use some front end tools for displaying your content if drupal ui doesnt satisfy your user experience and requirement.
The best CMS, Drupal is free and can get be installed without the need of purchasing any license or recurring fees. ... This makes it an affordable content management system with so many options available free of charge. As Drupal is open source, therefore, any web developer can work on it.

Wordpress Hosting

WordPress is, by far, the most popular open source Content Management System (CMS), used by approximately 75 million websites. WordPress is free to install, deploy, and upgrade. Thousands of plugins and templates power a flexible and simple interface, which reduces development costs and deployment time.
On a slightly more technical level, WordPress is an open-source content management system licensed under GPLv2, which means that anyone can use or modify the WordPress software for free.
WordPress is designed so that you don't need to hire an expert and pay extra to get yourself a great website. But if you're creating a highly bespoke site or you're running a business and don't have the time or skills to do it in-house, then it can be a good investment.
While WordPress is known for being a fairly user-friendly platform, there's still a lot to learn when it comes to WordPress for beginners.
PHP is a programming and scripting language to create dynamic interactive websites. WordPress is written using PHP as the scripting language. Just like WordPress, PHP is also an Open Source.

Magento Hosting

Magento is an ecommerce platform built on open source technology which provides online merchants with a flexible shopping cart system, as well as control over the look, content and functionality of their online store. Magento offers powerful marketing, search engine optimization, and catalog-management tools.
Adobe Completes Acquisition of Magento Commerce. Adobe (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced the completion of its acquisition of Magento Commerce, a market-leading commerce platform.
Magento is built on top of Zend Framework, which is a popular PHP framework that allows people to create their comprehensive software packages easily. Magento itself is a PHP-based solution and generally uses MySQL for database management.
Learn basic programming languages. Now you know how Magento works, it is time to learn programming languages such as HTML, CSS, PHP, XML, and JavaScript.You need a decent knowledge of PHP to enable you to get tasks done such as repeating sets of products.
Magento is massive, it comes with over 5000 files. There are over 2700 files in /app/code/core/Mage/ folder.This however is what makes Magento so hard to learn. In small applications with just a few classes thrown around few files, it easy to grab you're favorite text editor and do some magic.

MySQL-as-a-service

MySQL is a database management system. It may be anything from a simple shopping list to a picture gallery or the vast amounts of information in a corporate network. To add, access, and process data stored in a computer database, you need a database management system such as MySQL Server.
Database Management, allows a person to organize, store and retrieve data from a computer. Database Management can also describe, the data storage, operations and security practices of a Database Administrator (DBA), throughout the life cycle of the data. ... All users come to that one system to access the data.

1)They store data and provide facilities (tools) to search for specific records in a given set of data.


2)They store data and provide facilities (tools) to search for specific records in a given set of data.


3)They can solve cases where many users want to access (and possibly change) the same entries of data.

phpMyAdmin is one of the most popular applications for MySQL database management. It is a free tool written in PHP. Through this software you can create, alter, drop, delete, import and export MySQL database tables

For new applications, I've said use MySQL 5.5 without hesitation for many months now, and now I'd even say use MySQL 5.6.


For older applications running MySQL 5.0, I'd say upgrade to 5.5 directly, skipping over 5.1

PostgreSQL-as-a-service

PostgreSQL is an open-source object-relational database management system, and the go-to database for companies operating in a variety of markets from manufacturing to IoT.
As an open source technology, PostgreSQL is free to use with no licensing costs, which can save you thousands up to millions each year over a commercial RDBMS. The top reasons why PostgreSQL is used also include its active community support, high performance, 3rd party tools, ease of use, and deep feature set.
A "connection" refers to a TCP connection between your application and the PostgreSQL database.
PgAdmin is one of the most popular applications for PostgreSQL database management. It is a free tool written in PHP. Through this software you can create, alter, drop, delete, import and export PostgreSQL database tables
Yes. In our PostgreSQL DB-as-a-service, HA PostgreSQL DB plans are fully managed PostgreSQL DB Clusters. Each cluster consists of 2 replicas.

Yes. The SSL connection is enabled by default for each newly created MongoDB database on our Mongo DB-as-a-service.
Yes. In our Mongo DB-as-a-service, HA MongoDB plans are fully managed MongoDB Clusters. Each cluster consists of 3 replicas.
You can get it by choosing a longer billing cycle. The longer the billing cycle is, the lower the price is.
If you are not sure what plan you should start with, you can choose a primitive plan and upgrade to a higher level when necessary. Our MongoDB hosting plan upgrade is very smooth here. There is almost no downtime during the process.

MariaDB-as-a-service

MySQL has been bought by Oracle in 2010. The open source community decided to create a fork of it called MariaDB to keep it totally independent from big companies. For general purposes, MySQL and MariaDB are quite the same but MariaDB tends to have more features and is by definition more open.
Vipercloud currently supports MariaDB major versions 10.0, 10.1 and 10.2.
Yes. We takes backups for each database regularly and keeps each backup for 7 days.
PhpMyAdmin is one of the most popular applications for Maria DB database management. It is a free tool written in PHP. Through this software you can create, alter, drop, delete, import and export Maria DB database tables.
We don’t support shared MariaDB hosting.

RabbitMQ-as-a-service

RabbitMQ is a high performance messaging broker. It gives your applications a common platform to send and receive messages. Messages can be sent across languages, platforms, and OS, which decouples your processes from each other and creates a highly scalable system.
Message queues provide an asynchronous communication protocol. They are used to transmit data between components in an architecture. The concept is that messages are put into a queue and then removed from the queue in a predefined order. Messages placed in the queue are stored until the recipient retrieves them. This way of handling messages decouples the sender from the receiver. The sender and the receiver of the message do not need to interact with the message queue at the same time.
A channel is a virtual connection inside a (TCP) connection. A channel is used to send AMQP commands to the broker. Publishing or consuming messages or subscribing to a queue are all done over a channel.
A message is the data transported between the publisher and the consumer; essentially a message is a byte array with some headers on top.
A connection is a TCP connection between your application and the RabbitMQ broker.

Graylog-as-a-service

Graylog is a powerful platform that allows for easy log management of both structured and unstructured data along with debugging applications. It is based on Elasticsearch, MongoDB, and Scala. ... We use Graylog primarily as the stash for the logs of the web applications we build.
Graylog is a powerful platform that allows for easy log management of both structured and unstructured data along with debugging applications. It is based on Elasticsearch, MongoDB, and Scala.
Graylog Sidecar is a lightweight configuration management system for different log collectors, also called Backends . The Graylog node(s) act as a centralized hub containing the configurations of log collectors
Graylog is an open-source log management tool. Similar to Splunk and LogStash, Graylog helps centralize and aggregate all your log files for full visibility. It also provides a query language to search through log data. For large volumes of log data in a big production setup, you might want to deploy a Graylog Cluster.
The Graylog web interface was rewritten in JavaScript for 2.0 to be a client-side single-page browser application. This means its code is running solely in your browser, fetching all data via HTTP(S) from the REST API of your Graylog server. The HTTP address must be accessible by everyone using the web interface

Docker-as-a-service

Docker is a set of platform as a service products that uses OS-level virtualization to deliver software in packages called containers.
Containers are isolated from one another and bundle their own software, libraries and configuration files; they can communicate with each other through well-defined channels.
Fast, consistent delivery of your applications Docker streamlines the development lifecycle by allowing developers to work in standardized environments using local containers which provide your applications and services. Containers are great for continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) workflows.
The Docker daemon (dockerd) listens for Docker API requests and manages Docker objects such as images, containers, networks, and volumes. A daemon can also communicate with other daemons to manage Docker services.
Docker is written in Go and takes advantage of several features of the Linux kernel to deliver its functionality.

Kubernetes-as-a-service

Kubernetes is an open-source container-orchestration system for automating application deployment, scaling, and management
With modern web services, users expect applications to be available 24/7, and developers expect to deploy new versions of those applications several times a day. Containerization helps package software to serve these goals, enabling applications to be released and updated in an easy and fast way without downtime. Kubernetes helps you make sure those containerized applications run where and when you want, and helps them find the resources and tools they need to work. Kubernetes is a production-ready, open source platform designed with Google's accumulated experience in container orchestration, combined with best-of-breed ideas from the community.
The core of Kubernetes' control plane is the API server. The API server exposes an HTTP API that lets end users, different parts of your cluster, and external components communicate with one another.
“A container image is a lightweight, stand-alone, executable package of a piece of software that includes everything needed to run it: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries, settings….(..)…Containers isolate software from its surroundings, for example differences between development and staging environments and help reduce conflicts between teams running different software on the same infrastructure.”
Kubernetes’ broad adoption, growth, support and popularity stands out among all other container orchestration solutions. The project gained a very large active user and developer open source community, as well as the support of global enterprises, IT market leaders and major cloud providers.

SSL Certificates

SSL, which stands for Secure Sockets Layer, is a cyber-security protocol that digitally encrypts information sent from a browser to a server. SSL certificates are used to protect sensitive information like credit card numbers, usernames, passwords, email addresses, and more. A website with an SSL certificate is identified using a number of trust indicators, like "https" and the padlock icon in the browser bar, a site seal from a reputable Certificate Authority (CA), and a green bar that wraps around the URL on more premium certificates.
Wildcard SSL certificates can cover one main domain name (www.domain.com) and an unlimited amount of subdomains (mail.domain.com, login.domain.com, test.domain.com, etc.).
Multi-domain or SAN (Secure Alternate Name) SSL certificates can cover multiple domain names on just one certificate.
Wildcard SSL certificates can cover one main domain (www.domain.com) and an unlimited amount of subdomains (mail.domain.com, login.domain.com, test.domain.com, etc.). Multi-domain (SAN) SSL certificates can cover multiple domains on just one certificate.
These key lengths refer to the strength of the private key. You can think of it as the size of the cypher being used to encode your messages. Obviously, 2048-bit private keys are exponentially more secure than 1024-bit ones and are the new standard across the industry and are required during the generation process.
