Which Hosting Plan Should I Choose?

Are you looking for a hosting plan? Confused which one to choose? Shared Hosting, VPS Hosting or Dedicated Hosting? In this article, we hope we help in making the best decision possible for you.

Shared Hosting Plans

These are our most affordable and economical web hosting plans. Shared web hosting means multiple users share one physical server and it’s resources. It is recommended for customers that don’t have a large amount of incoming traffic. Almost every tool and modules required for common web applications are pre-installed here.

Advantages of The Core Hosting Shared Hosting

  • Very economical. Our most affordable plan
  • Our shared hosting is Fully-Managed, This way you do not have to worry about anything server related
  • Easy to use cPanel based control panel.
  • 400+ 1-click install scripts available
  • Our servers run on Raid-10 hardware raids on SSD Drives
  • Our servers are optimized to run your site at its optimal performance, and we never overload our servers, so that way there are resources available.
  • Easily scale your website to VPS or Dedicated Servers with our no downtime migration process.

Disadvantages of Shared Hosting

  • You will not be able to install any modules or programs that require server-side changes
  • Since it’s a shared environment, issues with other sites sometimes will affect your site.
  • It is not suitable for resource-intensive applications.
  • You are not allowed to make any customization that will require server-side changes.

VPS Hosting Plans

A VPS ( Virtual Private Server ) is a shared server platform that mimics all features and functions of a dedicated server. A VPS will have its own operating system and customers will get access with full root privileges. This means you can install anything upon it and can customize the VPS as desired.

Advantages of InterServer VPS Hosting

  • You will get access to the server with full root privileges.
  • You can choose your OS from the list of supported OS’s
  • You can install any applications and can make any server-side changes.
  • You can choose a stand-alone server or choose any supported control panels.
  • You can upgrade or downgrade the resources anytime.

Disadvantages of VPS Hosting

  • You will need a bit of technical knowledge to effectively manage the backend of a VPS server.
  • VPS is a shared server platform that mimics all features and functions of a dedicated server. Instead, physical resources are being shared amongst customers. In rare situations, other server hosted on your same node may affect your VPS’s performance. ( depends on the virtualization technique. )

Dedicated Hosting Plans

It’s an actual physical server with real hardware and resources. Techs at our Datacenter will be doing the server provisioning and upgrades. If you want to know more about our datacenters and network, the details are available in the following links.

Advantages of InterServer Dedicated Hosting

  • Suitable for high resource-intensive applications.
  • Recommended if you are are getting high incoming traffic.
  • You can choose to install any OS’s.
  • Extreme reliability and performance.

Disadvantages of Dedicated Hosting

  • Expensive when compared to our VPS and Shared plans.

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
