Jetfire Networks: Premium Virtual Private Servers, cPanel® Web Hosting, Never Oversold, Focused on Security.
We provide Virtual Private Servers using OpenVZ (Open Virtuozzo) technology. Also known as VPS Containers, Virtual Machines, or Virtual Environments, the OpenVZ platform provides virtualization at an Operating System level. Each virtual server runs independently, and has its own disk, CPU, and memory allocations, while sharing an identical system kernel. As OpenVZ does not utilize a hypervisor (ie, Xen or KVM) it is much more lightweight and has very little overhead. Each VPS is contained within its own operating system, and runs completely independent from other Virtual Machines, allowing you to have control over your choice of Operating System, control panels, software packages, security configurations ... the list goes on! Choosing a VPS allows you to have the features and control of a dedicated Linux server at about half the price.
Whether running a single website, or a large scale Web Hosting service, we've created multiple configurations to benefit individuals and business alike.
Jetfire Networks adheres to a business model which embraces our ethical and moral values. We form business relationships with experienced, knowledgeable professionals, who understand that the phrase "you get what you pay for" reigns especially true in the Web Hosting
industry, and have the foresight to look past service packages labeled as "cheap", "budget", or "basic" - who understand that a "cheap" Virtual Server package can often return a similar level of service.
You may have noticed that OpenVZ VPS configuration packages are generally less expensive per month than technologies like Xen or KVM. You may have also read other providers' websites, which can sometimes claim that OpenVZ's lightweight, Operating System-level virtualization results in a decreased level of performance and the potential for overselling/overloading on the part of the provider. If you've not heard about "overselling" before, this practice is the Web Hosting equivalent to "biting off more than you can chew", and is a gross misrepresentation of service. The practice, in this industry, generally accompanies a collection of visually appealing service packages advertising giant (and even in some cases, "unlimited") amounts of system resources, for only a few dollars per month. This is generally based on the provider's assumption that their customer will only use a fraction of the service they've ordered, and therefore continue offering these packages, without considering their own system resources and limitations, and most importantly, how it will affect their clients' level of service down the road. Frequently reported complaints associated with this practice include a notable decrease in website load and response times, a marked delay in accessability and availability of service, frequent fluctuation of upload/download speeds, unexpected error messages loading in place of your website, emails bouncing back as undeliverable due to poor I.P. address reputation, and, worse yet, a full-blown outage when you least expect it.
We believe in providing generous shared hosting packages, but two words that we don't use around here are "unlimited" or "unmonitored" when defining our services. This reflects a more realistic approach to web hosting, and the services we provide. It can be hard to resist a package with "unlimited" domains, disk space, data transfer, and domains hosted. We have set up services for many clients who have come to us from an "unlimited" service package due to problems with fluctuating load & response times caused by misuse of system resources (overselling), or legitimate emails being returned to the sender due to poor mail server or network reputation. Having an eventual limit to our service packages allows us the ability to maintain reliability and performance of our shared hosting environments.
