    Managed vs Unmanaged server. Which one to choose?

    Managed vs Unmanaged server. Which one to choose?

    Hosting providers offer a wide range of products to meet all the users' needs. There are some basic specifications in order to choose a VPS:
    - high uptime,
    - technical support available 24/7,
    - ability to scale plans,
    - additional security services, etc.
    You can learn more about this from the post in our blog.

    To continue the subject of VPS selection, let's look at what managed, and unmanaged servers are, and what are used for.

    Managed hosting ensures that your server is administrated by the provider. In fact, you get additional services to the standard configurations of unmanaged hosting, such as software updates, mailbox, database management, installation of add-ons, which, of course, are reflected in the price of the plan. It can be recommended for users with no technical knowledge on server operation. As usually, the functionality is limited and depends on the service provider.

    An unmanaged VPS is completely controlled by the customer. The software and operating system configuration, as well as total control over server configurations and operation, allow you to customize the server environment according to your preferences.

    An unmanaged VPS has several advantages over a managed VPS.

    The primary benefit of an unmanaged VPS is full control (in terms of bandwidth, memory, software installation and storage usage). Flexibility in settings allows you to install selected applications that best meet your needs or are required for specific tasks. It's easy to create a separate environment within the server or isolate resources for different projects. Finally, unmanaged VPS servers are ideal for businesses with high bandwidth requirements.

    What factors should be considered when choosing an unmanaged VPS?

    Virtualization. Learn the available features of virtualization software. VPS Netherlands are based on KVM, which has more core settings and more software options available.

    Resources. Over time, your project will expand and require additional resources. Ensure you can scale your plan as needed.

    OS compatibility. Not all providers offer unmanaged Windows VPS or all Windows OS distributions, and the same can be said about Linux.

    OS distributions. If you need a specific OS version, make sure it's on the provider's services list.

    Uptime. Make sure your server provider has minimal downtime. VPS Netherlands’ uptime rates to date are 99.9%.

    Additional services. Some projects may require additional components, such as IP addresses. We recommend choosing a provider that can offer these services.

    Technical support. Despite the fact that an unmanaged VPS implies full control over the system, LLHOST INC.'s multi-lingual support is available 24/7 for any queries.

    The decision to select a VPS is based on your technical experience, project needs, budget, etc.

    We just want to kindly remind you that Black Friday MONTH is in full swing! And VPS Netherlands from LLHOST INC. gets -50% OFF with the promo code #BlackFriday50! Hurry up to apply it before December 25, 2022 and share it with your friends, because the promo code can be applied by an unlimited number of users.

    6 tips to check the server before the Christmas holidays.

    6 tips to check the server before the Christmas holidays.

    Winter holidays always come with long weekends. Someone decides to spend it with family and friends, and someone leaves for a vacation. Anyway, you don't want to get back to work, even for a minute.

    We have prepared for you a list of recommendations to check the server before the long vacation, so that you can celebrate without worrying about your projects.

    1. Check your balance.
    Server invoice is the most important and, at the same time, most often forgotten to pay. Check the time frame of your services. We recommend that you make sure that your balance is not zero. It is even better to pay in advance so that the server is not stopped for non-payment. Also, in the case of a bank payment method, take into consideration some time for the funds to be credited to your account.

    Don't forget that you also need to verify payment for additional services, such as domain name, SSL certificate (if used), IP addresses, services provided under a paid subscription. For example, an SSL certificate has to be installed on the server instead of the expired one, even if you have automated payments.

    2. Set up tracking.
    During the holidays, there is always an increased load on the servers, which can result in their downtime. The risks of other external factors are also not excluded as well. A tracking service will notify you of any issue that occurs. It can be achieved through scripts that send emails or by installing special tracking apps.

    3. Keep logins and passwords within your reach.
    Ensure that you always have access "keys" with you, at least to the main resources: your email account, personal account and server. They can be saved, for example, in a password manager or notes on a mobile phone. This will save you time and allow you to solve any problem promptly, because it may happen that due to the lack of access to a resource, any minor problem will turn into a global one.

    4. Ensure free storage.
    Lack of disk space is one of the frequent reasons why your project is unavailable. You can test the upload to the server with special utilities, commands, or tracking services. We recommend that you check these settings:
    • cache space that your project requires,
    • log files,
    • backups that are saved to the same disk,
    • at least 40% of space is available.

    5. Keep backup copies.
    Backup is necessary to form a data archive that is protected from changes and damage, as well as to restore the project in case of damage or failures in the original source. Save all data back up before the holidays using the "3-2-1" rule. It consists of creating 3 copies at a time, 2 of which are stored on physical storage devices and the other in digital format.

    6. Improve network security and DDoS protection.
    Server security is always our priority, and is particularly relevant during vacations. Almost every Internet project, from business applications to web development and online services, requires increased fault tolerance, performance and data protection. We recommend switching passwords and using servers with anti-DDoS services. VPS Netherlands from LLHOST INC. include DDoS mitigations that scan all incoming traffic and cut suspicious packets in accordance with established rules.

    These simple tips will allow you to avoid unnecessary worries on the server during the winter vacation. In addition, you can also get a DDoS-protected virtual server for half the price!

    LLHOST INC. is still on Black Friday MONTH! Until December 25, 2022 VPS Netherlands are available with a -50% discount on the website or with the promo code #BlackFriday50. This promotion is valid for 3 months of the monthly billing cycle for an unlimited number of users.

    Avatar: The Way of Water. Worldwide release.

    Avatar: The Way of Water. Worldwide release.

    Released in 2009, “Avatar” was a huge success and continues to be the highest grossing movie of all time. So 13 years later, since the movie hit the public, we're going back to Pandora. December 16, 2022 is the day when the world will see the next chapter of the story. It is the date of the world premiere of the eagerly awaited sequel "Avatar: The Way of the Water".

    The release of the movie was planned for December 2014. However, its launch has been delayed eight times because of multiple pre-production problems, as it was designed to be a visual show with staggering effects and the best 3D technologies. The pre-broadcast took place earlier in London, and almost all participants agreed that director James Cameron is definitely creating different visuals of everything we've seen on the screen before. And “Avatar: The Way of Water” also has a more personal emotional development of the story. 3 hours and 12 minutes of CNA hours seems to make up for the long wait between films.

    In an interview, Cameron said, "I felt I had to do the same thing [as Jackson did with The Lord of the Rings]. I had to play this as if the books already existed. So the only way for us to do that was to write all the scripts and let the actors read all the scripts and see where their characters were going and what it all meant".

    Long before he began working on the sequel, he spent several years writing “The Avatar Bible”, where he described the entire saga: world, mindset and characters. And this time, James Cameron also took on the role of screenwriter with Josh Friedman, author of War of the Worlds, and Terminator: Dark Fate.

    An official synopsis says, "Jake Sully is living with his new family on planet Pandora. Once the troubles begin to follow them, he co-operates with Neytiri and the Na'vi army to protect his planet". This only unveils the mystery as well as the trailers.

    The production crew specified that the film focuses on Jake, whose human consciousness has been permanently loaded into his Na'vi body. Along with Neytiri and their children, he is forced to leave their home and explore other areas of Pandora, including its oceans, in order to save their family. While “Avatar: The Way of Water” is the sequel to the first film, the team has repeatedly pointed out that this is a full-fledged story.

    Looking forward for Cameron to once again makes a 3D revolution in cinemas, we're going to the premiere of “Avatar: The Way of Water” with you.

    And yes, good news are never not much! We remind you that -50% discount for VPS Netherlands from LLHOST INC. with DDoS protection (L3-L4) is extended until December 25, 2022.

    Check out all the technical specifications on the website and choose the appropriate plan. The discount applies to 3 months of the monthly billing cycle and cannot be combined with other special offers.

    How to make a server migration?

    How to make a server migration?

    Data migration is the process of a one-time mass movement of large amounts of data from source system to a destination system, in which the operation of data in the source system is terminated.

    During the migration process, we can't avoid a temporary downtime of both servers. Also, the complexity of the process depends on the type and volume of data being moved. There are steps to help facilitate the process:

    1. Determine the type and status of the data, such as format and confidentiality, taking into consideration any changes they may receive during migration.
    2. Plan your migration time: since migration involves a downtime period, this can affect the work of all project members.
    3. Back up your data in order to have access to all available files and, if required, use them for recovery.
    4. Monitor the process, even if everything goes well; there may be some issues after the process is completed.

    Depending upon your options, the following migration methods are available:

    Migration via Control Panel.
    If the source system uses one of the control panels, the migration process will be much simpler. They usually contain back-up and recovery options. For example, during your website migration, you may need to update the configuration to use your VPS' IP address. When the installation is complete, you will need to update your DNS records to point to your VPS.

    Migration via a unique or non-use Control Panel.
    If the source system (hosting provider) does not use a control panel or uses its own, or you do not want to use a control panel for your VPS, then you'll have to do some extra steps. Using the example of a website migration, once you backup and complete your configurations, you may need to manually install additional software on your new VPS.

    Migration carried out by LLHOST INC. technicians.
    LLHOST INC. team is ready to help you set up the server, organize and prepare the migration. To do this, select any VPS Netherlands plan and, after server activation, send a migration request through the ticket system. Data transfer is done automatically by fully copying and then deploying the entire file system and its settings (OS and software) on the new platform, excluding temporary files or directories.

    To reduce your concern about the migration process even more, LLHOST INC. is coming up with an interesting offer for you: a -35% discount on all VPS Netherlands plans for 3 months of the monthly billing cycle. Hurry up until January 13, 2023 as the offer is only available for one week!

    What is the best VPS hosting service?

    What is the best VPS hosting service?

    Virtual servers (VPS) are one of the best business solutions around the world today. It is useful not just for the IT community involved in web development or online shops, but also for enterprises using the services of an email server, IP telephony or CCTV server.

    VPS is a must for complex web projects with high traffic, which is supported by a reliable hardware solution.

    On a virtual server, you can deploy any version of the system libraries and configure existing ones. Full access to the root directories will enable you to change, add or remove files, change the operating system and make modifications to the software.

    When using a VPS server, the dedicated resources are guaranteed: RAM, CPU, storage, which make your server operate fast and independent of other users.

    LLHOST INC. team improves its services daily to ensure our users get the best products. We aim to provide the highest level of service by increasing anti-DDoS protection. At the same time, a high level of productivity and maximum uptime are retained.

    83% of our customers continued using VPS Netherlands from LLHOST INC. after first month of use.

    Why do they choose virtual servers from LLHOST INC.?

    The main advantages of VPS Netherlands are:

    High security level.
    VPS Netherlands includes protection from DDoS attacks (L3-L4), and 24/7 multilingual technical support ready to solve any issues as quickly as possible.

    Server's performance and power.
    All hardware is based on Dell platforms, latest generation AMD and Intel® Xeon® processors, REG ECC RAM, enterprise-class SSDs. As a result of these technical specifications, there will be sufficient power and memory for all needs. You can distribute resources in different directions, create an email server, cloud storage, install your own software, etc.

    Quick installation.
    SLA setup is 10 minutes. You can start using VPS immediately, without installing extensions. The virtual server receives all required startup information from the parent host.

    Server scalability.
    As the amount of data increases and the power needs to be increased, it is possible to scale any VPS Netherlands plan.
    You can also perform nested virtualization or request an extra IP address.

    Root access.
    You manage the server with administrator rights, so that all processes running on the server are under your control. You can modify the settings for your project's needs, install additional software, edit or replace the files in the system.

    Dedicated IP address.
    It helps to protect from accidental blockades caused by the actions of "neighbors". A dedicated IP address is required when setting up an e-mail service or FTP server for exchanging files, when creating VPN channels.

    Price and payment.

    What a Virtual Server is NOT a Solution for?

    What a Virtual Server is NOT a Solution for?

    In our blog, we have talked about all the benefits and advantages of virtual servers (VPS) several times. Whether it's storage of personal data or creating VPN channels, deploying IP telephony, a CCTV or a mail server (see the articles “Why does your business need a virtual server?”, "QA environment on a virtual server", "What is the best VPS hosting service?").

    Today we are going to discuss on what a virtual server is NOT a solution for.

    Thus, cases where VPS will not be helpful to your business:

    Storage of bank data or state secrets.
    Processing and storing confidential data requires high-level security and control that no virtual server is yet able to provide. The "Concerning Personal Data" law in many countries requires physical data protection and security practices. Often, such organizations use a hybrid infrastructure: some of the data is stored on a virtual server (including the QA environment), and critical information is stored on a physical one.

    IT conservatism.
    IT-technologies offer ever more advanced methods of processing, monitoring and management. And if it's sometimes difficult if they help or if they just exist in parallel, allowing us to enter their world, pay attention to the world's leading successful brands. There are few who today do not use modern virtualization capabilities, cloud-based solutions or big data.

    Older hardware and software.
    Is your operating system version pre-2000s, and is your database stored on floppy disks? Based on the above, older versions of software and components block the transition to the VM environment. This means the business must make fundamental changes to its IT infrastructure.

    Financial indifference.
    You're unlikely to ignore IT service maintenance costs, such as budget for hardware purchase and repair, software upgrades, team of experts. For small and medium-sized enterprises, the cost of physical servers is heavy. Virtual servers help prevent capital investment in hardware. All you have is just small monthly payments for the necessary specifications. The provider takes care of everything else.

    No plans to develop the business.
    If today you decide to stop there or don't see any development possibilities, tomorrow everything can change in a spectacular way. Increase in customer base or services always requires scaling the IT infrastructure. And migrating to a virtual server will prepare your company for fast growth as much as possible.

    For all other solutions, there are VPS Netherlands from LLHOST INC. They are a perfect solution for both small businesses and start-ups, and leading holdings. They allow you to fully control your resources with no restrictions or influence from "neighbors". Top Tier data centres are served 24/7 to avoid unnecessary downtimes, multilingual technical support is provided 24/7, and enterprise-class SSDs help improve speed and reliability.

    For those who have not yet joined the LLHOST INC. family we have prepared a -20% discount on all VPS Netherlands for 3 months of the monthly billing cycle. *

    Pick the plan that works for you, paying only for the resources you need!

    * The discount is valid until February 3, 2023 for an unlimited number of users and cannot be combined with other special offers.

    TV Show The Last of Us. Premiere Weeks Review.

    TV Show The Last of Us. Premiere Weeks Review.

    WARNING! This text may be followed by spoilers!

    The first video-game "The Last of Us" from Naughty Dog’s developers, was released back in 2013 exclusively for PlayStation consoles. This story of the post-apocalyptic world has struck a chord with so many users, that it has been constantly updated with various DLCs and remastered versions of the video-game, as well as four comic books as a spin-off.

    Thus, nearly 10 years later, HBO presented the eponymous TV show to fans of "The Last of Us". It debuted on January 15, 2023, and is already determined #1 on IMDb's "Most Watched TV Shows" with a 9.3 user rating.

    We went through the reviews of the first two series on the network. The opinion of the critics is unanimous: "The Last of Us" is better than the cult "The Walking Dead".

    “Empire”, a British film magazine, named “TLoU” the best adaptation of the video-game: “Comfortably the best adaptation of a video-game ever made: one that deepens the video-game’s dystopian lore, while staying true to its emotional core. Like the video-game, it’s a masterpiece, too.

    Indeed, the TV adaptation follows the video-game's original storyline, keeping all the most thrilling moments.

    “NME”, one of Time Warner's largest magazines, noted that the authors revealed the missed moments of the video-game: “Mazin and Druckmann have opted to expand their world rather than remake it – filling in the gaps that were previously left blank.”

    Thus, the series "The Last of Us" not only adds details to the video-game, but also acts as an entry point for those not familiar with the story. The action takes place in the United States after a global epidemic caused by a mutated Cordyceps fungus. The cities were destroyed alongside the population. The survivors, a smuggler Joel and a teenage Ellie, cross the ruins to get out of the quarantine zone.

    No doubt, the imitated key scenes from the video-game are delightful, but the "terrifying" details deserve special attention: the appearances of the infected, their fuzzy tendrils crawl out of their mouths like nested xenomorphs, mushroomed scalps... Even the old paint scabbing over walls and fungal veins crawling across floors was taken into account and imitated in the series.

    No negative reviews were found for "The Last of Us'' as of this writing. It was also highly rated by LLHOST INC.'s team. We are also interested in your opinion. So we prepared two promo codes at the same time: HBOTLOU-LIKE for those who liked the series, and HBOTLOU-DISLIKE for those who think the video-game would be sufficient. Apply them when ordering VPS Netherlands from LLHOST INC. and benefit from a -25% discount during 3 months of the monthly billing cycle.*

    Let's see how you cast a vote

    *The discount is valid until February 10, 2023 and cannot be combined with other special offers.
