New service features and cPanel price increase

Hello everyone, Jacob here with The Core Hosting. The team has been working hard over the last few months redesigning our website, working out a new lower-cost pricing structure, and expanding the features of our current services as well as creating new ones! Also, as a follow-up to our email last month, We wanted to go over the new cPanel pricing structure as it is a big change.

New Shared hosting features

Shared hosting is one of our largest services we provide, and we are always looking for ways to improve the performance of our servers, which of course improves your sites. Over the last few months, our team has researched, tested, and now finally rolled out several new features to this platform.

  • Redis Server – For all of our Deluxe and Premium Shared hosting packages, you now have the ability to create, manage, and control your own redis instance. With Redis, you can vastly improve the performance of your websites by allowing you to utilize it as a caching system, rather than file-based or Memcache based.
  • PHP 7.3 – We’ve added support for PHP 7.3 so you can now use this newer version which is 10% faster than 7.2, 30% faster than 7.0-7.1, and 3x faster than 5.6.
  • Discontinuation of PHP 5.6 and 7.0 – Unfortunately, due to both of these versions now falling into their EOL (End of Life), which means they are no longer provided any type of updates. We will be removing these versions from our shared hosting platform. If you need help migrating to a newer version of PHP, please feel free to contact our support team.
  • Cloudflare Railgun – We are proud to announce that we have rolled out our Cloudflare railgun to all shared hosting packages. From your Cpanel account, you can now add your site to Cloudflare, and utilize not only its super-fast CDN, but our included railgun network, built on the Cloudflare platform. (Best part, it’s free)
  • JetBackups System – We’ve upgraded our backup system to now include the Feature package JetBackup system. You can now have more control over your backups, restorations, and more.

Lower Dedicated Server prices!

Over the years, we have become great partners with our infrastructure provider, and as such, we are now able to provide our Semi-Managed dedicated servers at an even lower price than before. On some server packages, the price has been lowered by almost half, while still maintaining the fully packed hardware and unlimited bandwidth at high speeds.

If you are looking to make the switch from your VPS service or shared hosting, to a Dedicated Server, contact our sales team today. We can help you make the best decision for what your site or application needs, and what will help you grow.

cPanel price changes

As most of us heard back in June, cPanel was acquired by Oakley Capital, and as such, price changes were going to be in the works. Expanding a bit more on our email last month in august, cpanel price changes went into effect September 1st of this year. These changes go from the standard VPS or Bare metal license to a new “Per-account” system. Depending on the number of individual cPanel accounts you have within your system, it will determine the pricing of your license. Below is a simple chart of the # of accounts Vs the price.

For VPS’s (Cloud)

cPanel Solo Cloud1 Account$15.00/Month
cPanel Admin CloudUp to 5 Accounts$20.00/Month
cPanel Pro CloudUp to 30 Accounts$30.00/Month
cPanel Premier CloudUp to 100 Accounts$45.00/Month
cPanel Premier Cloud Bulk accountsEach account above 100$45+$0.20(Per account over 100)/Month

BareMetal Servers (Dedicated Servers)

If you have any questions regarding the new cpanel pricing structure, or what your new price will be, or even how to lower your cpanel license price. Please contact our support team with all the questions, we will be happy to assist you.

Why choose a Dedicated Server?

What are the motivations to pick a Dedicated Server?

A Dedicated server is the “All In” when it comes to power, security, and control. With a Dedicated server, you won’t need to share resources with anyone else. Here are a portion of the top reasons that individuals pick a Dedicated server over other hosting choices:

Security is a top need

In case you’re maintaining a large online presence, security ought to be a top priority. With most hosting services such as Shared hosting, VPS hosting, and cloud hosting, you are sharing the host machine with tens if not hundreds of other clients. In these scenarios, Security can not be fully maintained by you, as you do not have root access to change important settings to secure the server and your hosted website or applications.

With a Dedicated server, you have full control, and as such, you can set up as tough of security as you need. Root access allows you to install needed security application, Change needed server settings, and maintain full access to all aspects of the system.

You anticipate reliably large amounts of traffic

The measure of traffic going to your site each day is a significant factor in your sites’ presentation. Generally, most site owners calculate their sites performance on the internet based on the number of people that come to their site. However, if your site becomes sluggish due to hosting services that are just not up to capacity for your site or application, Then it is time to look for something larger.

While a VPS Hosting can be a appeasing solution, For heavily trafficked sites, a dedicated server is a far better solution. Since you maintain full usage of all resources of the server, you never have to worry about others using resources that could be desperately needed for your site.

Faster load times means more visitors

In a similar light to the above, the faster your site goes, the more visitors you will get, and the longer they will stick around. Many articles have been written relating the speed of a site, and the time it takes to load a page, directly correlates to site view time. So the slower your site or application, the less time people will spend on site and the more bounces you’ll receive.

With a Dedicated server, you can fine tune every aspect of the system to give you not only optimal performance, but 24/7/365 up-time.

You need a custom solution

Shared services can be severely limited, Not only in terms of available resources, but in what you can do. As your website or application begins to grow, you may grow out of the standard programming codes, and move into more unique systems. In these events, the normal channels may not be sufficient.

Dedicated servers give you the ability to do what you need. From installing custom services, to creating specific environments for your applications. You have no limitations as to what you can do with a Dedicated Server.

If you have a site that will require major resources in the not too distant future, you may find it best to start out with the type of hosting you’ll need rather than trying to migrate your site to a dedicated server. Other hosting options will allow you to scale up, but there’s a limit to the amount of resources you’ll have access to.
