We have been constantly trying to improve and upgrade quality of our services and now we are doing one more major upgrade to our Budget Gigabit KVM VPS, after this upgrade even our Budget KVM VPS will performa like Premium VPS:
1) Retiring all our AMD Opteron VPS Nodes and upgrading to Intel E5 based Nodes with same RAID 10 SSD Drives (these nodes will be hosting almost half the number of VPS on them compared to our old VPS Nodes)
2) Upgrade VPS Node Port from 1 Gbps to 10 Gbps, this will improve network performance a lot.
Moreover we would like to inform all our Legacy 100 Mbps unmetered VPS clients that since we are now upgrading server port to 10Gbps, we will be strictly enforcing our Acceptable Usage Policy to avoid any bandwidth abuse, because it affects performance of all other VPS on the same node. We have found a lot of Unmetered VPS users using upto 50 TB per month on 100 Mbps Port, which clearly means that these VPS were using more then 100 Mbps 24×7 (yes it happens sometimes, traffic shaping does not work 100% accurately on VPS Nodes), we are rate limiting such VPS to 10 Mbps to avoid further abuse and to avoid of quality of service going down for our other clients, though if such user wants to switch to our Gigabit KVM VPS packages, just submit a support ticket we will do it. Moreover if you are on 100 Mbps Legacy package and if you are not abuser and following our Acceptable Usage Policy you can continue to use your VPS without issues and won’t find any kind of cap on your network. Most of these Bandwidth abusers appear to be commercial VPN/Proxy providers which is already against our Terms of Service, so if we find good proof that you are using it for commercial VPN/Proxy your services will be terminated (it does not matter if you are on unmetered or metered plan, but we don’t allow commercial vpn/proxy providers on our network)
We have lots of VPS nodes so this whole process will take almost 1 month or may be even more, but we are planning to start this process within next 3-4 days. This is how we have planned:
1) We will add new VPS nodes to same network as our current VPS Nodes (on 1 Gbps Port) then we will migrate all VPS from old VPS nodes to new VPS nodes, there will be no data loss or IP change, but you will experience downtime of few minutes usually less than 10 minutes.
2) Once VPS are migrated to new nodes, we will have to shutdown the VPS nodes and physically move them to the RACK with 10 Gbps network/switch, this migration can take 1-2 hour, as it involves shutting down vps nodes, physically UNRACK the VPS Node from old RACK and move it to the new RACK and plugin all cables, then route the IP ranges to the new switch/RACK and booting all the VPS nodes back online.
But once this done you will experience much better network performance as well as CPU performance, overall quality of VPS will improve a lot.
We will be doing this across all our locations – Los Angeles, New York, Las Vegas, Jacksonville.
We will be even starting Budget Gigabit VPS Service in Dallas soon, since this will be a new node, we will start it with 10Gbps Port
We will email all clients about it before we start this migration.
2020 has been a crazy year for everybody all over the globe, but we at Hosteons have been working behind the scenes to bring new services, service upgrades, server upgrades, and what not.
Here is what’s new with Hosteons:
Premium Ryzen VPS:
We have launched a Premium Range of Ryzen based KVM VPS in two locations – Los Angeles and Dallas (More locations coming soon). Ryzen CPU along with NVME Drives takes your VPS experience to a different level as these are very very fast CPU along with super fast NVME Drives it just makes you feel like as if you are using a Super Fast Dedicated Server with ease of singing a VPS. Our Ryzen VPS Nodes are connected to 10Gbps network instead of our regular 1 Gbps Network to even make your network lightning fast.
Direct Admin Switch:
Due to constant price increase by cPanel we decided to even switch to Direct Admin for our shared web hosting and reseller web hosting and we even took the opportunity to even switch our web server from Apache to Lite Speed along with Kernel Care for reboot less updates, Cloud Linux for stable hosting experience and even more secure with CageFS implementation. We even added Imunify to it to make sure all sites on the server malware free. Not only this now we are using RAID 10 SSD instead of normal HDD for even faster websites. We are now even taking offsite backups every alternate day.
KernelCare for Rebootless updates hence basically services with no downtime
RAID 10 SSD Based Storage for ultra fast disk access and very fast websites
Regular backups just in case if you ever want to restore your data.
24×7 Support – We understand how important your website is for you hence we have 24×7 support
These are so many features and benefits not possible to mention all of them in a single article.
Discontinued 100 Mbps KVM VPS:
We have discontinued 100 Mbps Unmetered KVM VPS and instead of started offering Gigabit VPS as we noticed now when 100 Mbps connectivity is very common even in a typical household broadband, so 100 Mbps on a server is not enough, moreover we had more reasons to make this decision like when we were offering 100 Mbps Unmetered VPS even a few abusive or even compromised 100 Mbps VPS could make the network experience bad for other VPS users on the VPS node and since we did not wanted to compromise on quality of our services, we made this tough decision. Though we are not terminating existing 100 Mbps VPS users, they can continue to use their 100 Mbps VPS as long as they keep renewing and even option to upgrade to Gigabit VPS is open for them.
Also new nodes that we are adding for Gigabit VPS are now on 10 Gbps Port, very soon we will upgrade, all our VPS nodes (those nodes will only have Gigabit VPS not 100 Mbps unmetered VPS)
Migration from SolusVM to Virtualizor:
SolusVM is a good VPS control panel but it’s been lacking lots of features that were available in Virtualizor or where were very much needed, hence we even switch from SolusVM to Virtualizor, it wasn’t issue to switch but we still did it with help of very helpful team of Virtualizor.
Some of the new features which were not available until in our VPS control panel will be available now, like:
Custom ISO upload – Now if you need to install an OS that’s not already available in our VPS templates you need not worry, just login to your VPS control panel and you can upload your own ISO and install your own OS, no need to even submit a ticket to do so.
Until now we had to shutdown or suspend VPS of CPU abusive users, but now we can simply cap or limit their CPU usage to make sure experience of other VPS users is not affected and it even avoids downtime for VPS users whose CPU usage goes out of control (usually it’s due to some buggy software)
Complete Integration with our billing system, so now you even don’t need to login to VPS control panel separately, you can mange most of the things directly from Client Porta/Billing/Helpdesk
Support for Block Storage (We plan to provide block storage soon, but lack of support in SolusVM was our biggest hurdle, but now we have this option available)
There are many more features to list in a single article.
Very soon even daily backups will be available with our Premium Ryzen VPS, we will send out an email once it’s available.

We at hosteons.com are proud to announce that soon we will be launching our new Premium Range of Ryzen 9 3900X Based KVM VPS on RAID Protected nVME Drives in Los Angeles, CA and Dallas, TX – Yeah we are even adding a new location Dallas 🙂
Currently all our VPS Nodes are on a Dedicated Gigabit Port but our new Premium Ryzen Based VPS Nodes will be connected to 10 Gigabit Network to our same premium network (yeah we are not using cogent, HE unlike many of our competitors) Our network mix has loads of premium uplinks:
INAP Performance IP, Century Link, AT&T, NTT, Verizon, Comcast, Telia, Zayo, China Unicom, China, GTT, Verizon and many more
Initially we are launching our Ryzen Based Premium VPS in LA and Dallas, but we will be soon launching them even in our other Locations – Las Vegas, New York, Jacksonville
We will soon launch our KVM VPS services in Denver and Atlanta.
Direct Admin is a feature rich web hosting control panel for Linux as well as FreeBSD.
Since Direct Admin require a license and it’s not free most providers charges extra for Direct Admin License Fees, but we at hosteons are offering Direct Admin for Free with all our VPS packages that can match the minimum requirement of Direct Admin Control Panel.
Our usual charges for Direct Admin License fees is $5 per month per VPS (It’s $15 per month for Dedicated Server), but for now we are offering Direct Admin for free, just use the COUPON CODE “DA” to get Direct Admin free with your VPS, order a VPS from https://hosteons.com/vps.php and use coupon code “DA” in the order form after selecting “Direct Admin Add-on” then submit a ticket we will install it for free.
CloudLinux OS is the leading platform for multitenancy. It improves server stability, density, and security by isolating each tenant and giving them allocated server resources. This creates an environment that feels more like a virtual server than a shared hosting account. By doing so, CloudLinux OS reduces operating costs and churn rates, and increases profitability.
CloudLinux OS is designed for shared hosting providers. It isolates each customer into a separate “Lightweight Virtualized Environment” (LVE), which partitions, allocates, and limits server resources, like memory, CPU, and connections, for each tenant. This ensures that tenants cannot jeopardize the stability of your servers, causing all sites to slow down or even come to a halt. CloudLinux OS also “cages” tenants from one another to avoid security breaches. This way, unstable scripts or malware are not able to sprawl across your customer sites, causing severe harm.
Hence now you can expect much better and faster web hosting experience without worrying about a bad neighbour on same web hosting server slowing down your website or even worried about security as now everything is protected by CageFS hence your site will be secure even if some other site on same server is hacked due to bad script or weak password or any other reason
We started with VPS Hosting Los Angeles, California in 2018, then we launched our VPS Services in New York in 2019, then we launched in Jacksonville, Florida in 2020 and now again in 2020 itself we are getting ready to launch our KVM VPS Services in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In Vegas we are located in Flexential Facility in North Vegas. Our VPS Nodes are already racked in Vegas, but we are still testing them and hoping to launch our KVM VPS Services backed by RAID 10 SSD Drives by this weekend.
As of right now you can order our 100Mbps unmetered as well as our Gigabit VPS from https://hosteons.com/vps.php and just select your location in the order form.
So now we will be providing our KVM VPS across 4 locations:
We are working on adding more locations, soon we will providing VPS Services in more locations
