Unmetered Linux VPS

JavaPipe, provider of DDoS preventive products and exclusive cloud based Java hosting solutions, declared that it has released VPS with unmetered bandwidth web hosting accounts.

JavaPipe suggests that their latest Linux VPS with unmetered bandwidth plans will support all sorts of heavy targeted traffic applications and websites. From streaming to hosting big documents , targeted traffic web sites serving audio, online video, pictures or application downloads will not have to keep in mind possibility of paying hidden added fees for exceeding bandwidth quota.

The corporation has launched two Unmetered VPS Servers web hosting options: the VPS FAST Storage and also the VPS BIG Storage. The Fast storage plan provides up to sixty GB SSD Storage and the Big storage account has as much as 800 GB SATA Storage. Both the plans are packed with up to 8 Gigabyte DDR3 RAM, eight x three 4 GHz CPU Core and Seven Hundred Fifty Gbps DDoS Safety. With one Gbps Unmetered Bandwidth bundled with both plans, consumers can choose one of the two components configurations suited to their necessities. JavaPipe also offers the option to select from managed or unmanaged options.

According to the organization, the VPS server industry standard is to offer generous but restricted bandwidth with VPS Server options. These limited bandwidth options are only suited to very low to medium traffic websites serving text articles. Since the development of handheld technologies and access to Wi-Fi Hotspots and blazing fast speed web connection, bandwidth constraints are no longer acceptable for web sites that serve a large quantities of content for every request. Further more they mentioned that, controlled bandwidth restricts the growth of heavy traffic sites and internet sites serving big files like – video clips, application and high definition photos, etc.

javapipe cloud server claims that, in contrast to standard VPS server accounts, VPS with unlimited bandwidth holder does not have to pay for any added price for bandwidth or bandwidth overage payment. VPS Unmetered Bandwidth servers are VPS web hosting accounts that come with unmetered website traffic. Unmetered Bandwidth web hosting makes it possible for a website to serve its content at constant high speeds.

The web hosting market has a tendency to make use of the replace the term bandwidth to refer to traffic or data transfer. Technically, bandwidth is not really the same as traffic. The two phrases have really distinctive meanings and effect on a business. Traffic is the quantity of data transferred to and from a VPS account over a time frame. And bandwidth can be defined as the speed at which information is being transferred from the account.

Unmetered bandwidth is just not similar to limitless bandwidth. Website hosting companies make use of the time period “unlimited” for describing bandwidth allowance on an account. This is promotinal ploy as it’s not cost effective or practically viable to offer genuinely endless bandwidth, nonetheless it does seem excellent to own! Theoretically, the similarity between unlimited bandwidth and unmetered bandwidth is the fact that each convey the same meaning. Realistically, a webhosting provider can provide unmetered bandwidth but not unlimited bandwidth.

Customers should be careful of providers supplying unrestricted bandwidth plans. As these companies are usually not upfront in disclosing their data transfer speeds or restrictions on their deals. Unmetered bandwidth VPS packages give customers a clearer picture in the data transfer limit at hand in a plan. To put it differently, it is easy to obtain and make an estimate of the amount of guests an internet site can serve when information such as the port size and hosting network speed is clearly defined.

In the PR, the company suggests that it is going to pay close attention to consumers and continuously look for ways to enhance its services on all fronts. Encouraged by performance, uptime and protection, their supreme goal is to create the top hosting experience for clients. The brand new Unmetered bandwidth VPS options are a significant step towards this direction. These are ideal options for quick rising companies that require far more server resources and unmetered bandwidth for their expanding sites.
