Your Web Hosting Options

Vontainment can help Southwest Florida Businesses who do currently have their own hosting. Web hosting is a service that allows organizations and individuals to unveil their website to the Internet. Websites are hosted, or stored servers so when users view your website, their browser connects to the server and your webpage is delivered. There several types of web hosting: Shared, Managed, Dedicated, VPS & others. Shared was the most common but it’s usage is falling. With shared you sit on a server with 1000+ other sites and sharing the server’s resources. This leads to slow hosting and less reliable hosting. Managed is a pricer version of shared where you share the server with far less websites. Dedicated is one of the most expensive options where you have the full server to yourself. Last but our favorite is VPS (Virtual Private Server). With a VPS the hosting company takes one server and breaks it up into isolated “virtual” servers. VPS come with reasonable pricing as your cost is offset by other sites. As for performance, VPS’s resources are dedicated and unaffected by other sites.

We specialize in working with VPS hosting. We offer a Managed VPS Hosting for clients with a single site and now advanced needs. With our Managed VPS Hosting your site will exist with a limited number of other sites on one of several VPS we currently have setup. This keeps performance high and costs affordable. Fwor more advanced, higher traffic, or clients who require multiple sites or cloud apps we offer Private VPS Hosting on Digital Ocean. Digital Ocean is the 3rd largest hosting company global and specialise in VPS. With Digital Ocean’s service we can open you an account and setup a VPS just for your. This is great for complex/high traffic sites, cloud apps, or multiple projects/sites but comes with the extra cost of server setup. If you are unsure of the best option for you, or looking for a particular hosting style, give us a call! We would be happy to assist in finding the best options for you; from VPS’s to other hosting options.

How web hosting works

Managed VPS Web Hosting

Vontainment is now offering a Managed VPS Hosting plan for clients. Our Managed VPS Hosting plan is designed for clients who do not need a private full VPS hosting. This helps you to eliminate the costs of initial VPS setup but without having to settle for low performance shared hosting. Our Managed VPS Hosting is optimized for WordPress/Woocommerce. Along with fast hosting you also get [email protected], modern webmail, daily local + remote backups, and free WordPress/Woocommerce updates. Our VPS servers are powered by:

  • Debian Linux 11
  • Apache2 with NGINX Reverse Proxy with PHP-FPM
  • Multiple PHP versions (5.6 – 8.1, 8.0 as default)
  • POP/IMAP/SMTP mail services with Anti-Virus, Anti-Spam, and Webmail (ClamAV, SpamAssassin, Sieve, Roundcube)
  • MariaDB and/or PostgreSQL databases
  • Let’s Encrypt SSL support with wildcard certificates
  • Firewall with brute-force attack detection and IP lists (iptables, fail2ban, and ipset).

Our Virtual Private Servers are secured and optimized for WordPress/WooCommerce with NGINX Reverse Proxy + Micro Caching. NGINX sits on the server in front of the Apache2 answering visitor requests from its cache when possible. This cuts out the need for WordPress/WooCommerce to process dynamic requests allowing more traffic as nearly instant loading speeds. We also employee Redis Object Cache to lower WP database usage and OPcache to accelerate PHP achieving 200ms loading times on average. We also integrate WP with server side software to optimize image file size for faster loading.
