    SmarterMail Domains CLOSE
    SmarterMail Domains

    SHARED Cloud SmarterMail Hosting supports from 1 to 5 Domains; whereas Cloud VPS CONTAINER and HYPERVISOR support UNLIMITED Domains.

    SmarterMail Mailboxes CLOSE
    SmarterMail Mailboxes

    SHARED Cloud SmarterMail Hosting supports from 4 to 50 Mailboxes; whereas Cloud VPS CONTAINER and HYPERVISOR both support 250 Mailboxes by default and can be upgraded to: 500, 1000, 2000, or UNLIMITED.

    SmarterMail Inbox Size CLOSE
    SmarterMail Inbox Size

    Inbox Size is the maximum supported size of each individual Mailbox for each Email user. It is the total amount of Diskspace that an Email user can consume with stored messages. SHARED Cloud SmarterMail Hosting supports from 1 to 2 GB Inbox Size; whereas for both Cloud VPS CONTAINER and HYPERVISOR this is an optional setting of your choice, for which you can set whatever limit you desire or even set it to UNLIMITED.

    SmarterMail Email / Message Size CLOSE
    SmarterMail Email / Message Size

    Email Size or Message Size is the maximum permitted size of each individual Email or Message that can be sent or received by an Email user. Messages larger than this limit will be rejected by the server. SHARED Cloud SmarterMail Hosting supports from 10 to 100 MB Email Size; whereas for both Cloud VPS CONTAINER and HYPERVISOR this is an optional setting of your choice, for which you can set whatever limit you desire or even set it to UNLIMITED.

    SmarterMail Diskspace CLOSE
    SmarterMail Diskspace

    Diskspace is the amount of SSD Cloud Storage that is provided to store Email Messages, Log Files, etc... SHARED Cloud SmarterMail Hosting supports from 4 to 100 GB of Diskspace; whereas by default Cloud VPS CONTAINER provides 20 GB; and HYPERVISOR provides 40 GB of Diskspace – any of which can be upgraded as needed.

    SmarterMail Memory CLOSE
    SmarterMail Memory

    The amount of Cloud Server Memory that is available to run SmarterMail and to handle in/out Email, Antispam, Antivirus, etc... Memory does NOT relate to SHARED Cloud SmarterMail Hosting because the servers are "Shared" and resources are therefore allocated at the server (not subscription) level. By default, Cloud VPS CONTAINER provides 1 GB; and HYPERVISOR provides 2 GB of Guaranteed Memory – which can be upgraded to higher levels in both cases, as more Memory means better performance and increased server stability.

      Guaranteed Memory CLOSE
      Guaranteed Memory

      Memory is the primary determining factor of server performance – even more important than CPU... more Memory is better performance. This is the default (base) amount of Guaranteed Memory allocated to the Cloud VPS; however this guaranteed amount can be increased on the server configuration page, for an additional fee. Cloud VPS Memory is also a burstable resource – which means that when under peak load, the server is able to temporarily burst above the guaranteed amount to maintain server stability.

      CPU Power CLOSE
      CPU Power

      CPU is the amount of processing power (GHz / Units) for the Cloud VPS... more CPU is better performance. It is second only to Memory as a determining factor of server performance. This is a burstable resource... here you set the guaranteed amount. | + $10 per 0.50 Ghz

      Diskspace CLOSE

      Diskspace is the amount of storage space available on the main (C:) Drive of the server for all: Files / Folders; Emails; Databases; Logs, etc... starting at 20 GB (Container) or 40 GB (Hypervisor) and can be increased up to 300 GB (Container) or 1 TB (Hypervisor) as more space is needed. | + $0.75 per GB

      Traffic (Data Transfer / Bandwidth) CLOSE
      Traffic (Data Transfer / Bandwidth)

      TRAFFIC – The amount of monthly Traffic (i.e. Data Transfer / Bandwidth) provided for all Websites Hosted within the subscription. Every Website visitor and every Email sent or received results in some amount of Traffic. ViUX® provides "UNLIMITED" Traffic for our Cloud Hosting, which means that we do not impose a limit on the total amount of Traffic used by the Website(s) or Email; however there is a practical limit to the total amount of simultaneous data that can be handled by a Cloud Server's Virtual-NIC Card as generated by (X) number of Websites and Web Services Hosted on that server. Therefore if it is known that a Website will have ultra-high traffic needs, we highly recommend Hosting on a Dedicated Server.

      Linux CLOSE

      Linux 64-Bit (Choose Distribution at Checkout)  –  Web Server: Apache; Application Servers: PHP, Perl, Java, & Ruby on Rails; Database Server: MySQL. Best for Applications written for "LAMP" Servers.

      Windows 2008 CLOSE
      Windows 2008

      Windows 2008 R2/SP1 (64-Bit)  –  Web Server: IIS 7.5; Application Servers: PHP, Perl, Java, ASP & ASP.NET; Database Server: MySQL & MS-SQL. | $30/mo as Container (1GB Memory) | $70/mo as Hypervisor (2GB Memory & 40GB Diskspace)

      Windows 2012 Standard (64-Bit)  –  Web Server: IIS 8.0 Application Servers: PHP, Perl, Java, ASP & ASP.NET; Database Server: MySQL & MS-SQL. | + $10 as Container | + $30 as Hypervisor (Virtual Machine / VM)

      Windows 2012 (TBA) CLOSE
      Windows 2012 (TBA)

      Windows 2012 Cloud VPS Containers will be available from ViUX® upon release of Parallels® Virtuozzo Containers (PVC) 6.0 for Windows – and support for this new version of PVC by Parallels Business Automation Standard (PBAS), which is our Billing & Hosting Automation System. This is expected in Q3-2014.

      Parallels® Containers CLOSE
      Parallels® Containers

      A Cloud VPS [Container] is based upon the concept of Operating System (OS) Virtualization, allowing a single OS install to support multiple isolated Virtual Environments. These are called "Containers", which look and work just like a real server from the prospective of the owner (YOU) and your users. The diagram (at right) shows how this looks from the Host Server.

      Parallels® Hypervisors CLOSE
      Parallels® Hypervisors

      A Cloud VPS [Hypervisor] is based upon the concept of Hardware Virtualization, which functions at the hardware level to create a duplicate of all system resources, including the: Operating System (OS); CPU; Memory; Configuration Files; etc... within each Virtual Machine. The diagram (at right) shows what a Hypervisor based system looks like from the Host Server. A Virtual Machine is BETTER than a Dedicated Server, as the resources are both guaranteed and burstable – plus more OS control than a [Container].
