Question

Are they dedicated or Shared hosting

I am looking at CPU Optimised plans Are these dedicated hosting plans ? Do they have Content Delivery Network? SSL certificate available? Do we get WHM panel? Are they managed plans? What is the security from brute attacks., what is your support for that? What is the chat support you have ?

hI @persistentdsl,

I’ll provide answers to each question as best explained in either documents or other questions alike:

  • CPU Optimised plans, Are these dedicated hosting plans?

Resources like RAM, disk storage, and network bandwidth are always dedicated, but you can choose between shared CPU and dedicated CPU plans for dedicated vCPU.

Dedicated CPU Droplets have guaranteed access to the full hyperthread at all times. With shared CPU Droplets, the hyperthread allocated to the Droplet may be shared between multiple other Droplets. When a shared CPU Droplet experiences heavier load, the hypervisor dynamically allocates more hyperthread(s) to it.

However, the amount of CPU cycles available for the hypervisor to allocate depends on the workload of the other Droplets sharing that host. If these neighboring Droplets have high load, a Droplet could receive fractions of hyperthreads instead of dedicated access to the underlying physical processors. In practice, this means that shared CPU Droplets can have access to full hyperthreads, but it’s not guaranteed.

  • Do they have Content Delivery Network?

No, there is no CDN included however you can use other free CDN like Cloudflare or anything similar.

  • SSL certificate available?

You can install the free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates on any of your Droplets.
