Get fully isolated Virtual Dedicated Server at low cost!

KVM Virtual Dedicated Servers Added To Service

Host Color launched new Virtual Dedicated Servers (VDS) based on KVM virtualization (Kernel-based Virtual Machine). We host the new KVM virtual machines in our core data center located in South Bend, Indiana, 90 miles from Chicago. With the launch of the new VDS our customers can now get low cost VPS hosting services, while choosing between three (3) virtualization platforms - OpenVZ VPS, KVM, Xen virtual machines.

Host Color offers four standard Virtual Private Server (or also VDS) plans. The entry level plan called VPS Start, now features KVM-based virtual server with 768 MB RAM, 20 GB space, 1,000 GB monthly bandwidth and 2 dedicated IP addresses.

The next VDS plan - VPS Advance offers 1,536 MB RAM, 40 GB space 2,000 GB monthly bandwidth, 2 dedicated IPs. The customers get a free SSL certificate with one year contracts.

Another KVM virtual server - VPS Power - features 2,432 MB RAM, 60 GB space, 3,000 GB monthly Bandwidth and also a free SSL certificate with one year contracts.

The other KVM VPS - VPS Custom - comes with 3,712 MB RAM, 100 GB space, 3,000 GB monthly bandwidth and 5 dedicated IP addresses.

All Virtual Dedicated Servers manageable with SolusVM VPS automation control panel.

Kernel-based Virtual Machine, popular with its abbreviation KVM, is a virtualization technique that allows the hypervisor (VMM or Virtual Machine Manager) to be embedded into the OS kernel. This makes possible for the Kernel-based virtual machines to benefit a lot from excellent disk and network I/O performance.

The KVM virtual servers also feature Virtual Network Computing (VNC) that gives Host Color's customers full access to the console of the VDS. This means that they can work in a physical-like IT Hosting environment and manage their virtual machines as a fully isolated dedicated servers.

Unlike the OpenVZ based VPS, on the KVM based Virtual Dedicated Servers the server memory (RAM) and hard disk space are not "shared" with other virtual machines on the underlying host server system. This means that the resources allocated on any KVM VPS can not be assigned to another virtual server and that overselling is not possible.

Among other benefits of the Host Color's KVM based VPS Hosting plans are:

  • An opportunity for the customers to choose custom kernels and custom kernel modules for their VDS
  • Set up of a VPN server in (PPTP, OpenVPN, IPSec)
  • Use Windows, Linux, BSD, OpenSolaris operating system
  • Run a Window manager such as Gnome or KDE and interaction with it using the VNC
  • The customers of the new KVM-based VPS/VDS Hosting plans, who use cPanel/WHM hosting automation panel can also activate by 1-click a free Content Delivery Network (CDN) service info their virtual machines.

    Host Color recently announced a promotional campaign on 100 Mbps Unmetered bandwidth (Unmetered Dedicated Servers) ports. It is available to users of Dedicated Hosting plans and the new KVM-based Virtual Dedicated Servers. Customers who wants to get a 100 Mbps quality bandwidth should open a support ticket with subject "100 Mbps Unmetered" from their accounts.
