    How to make a server migration?

    Data migration is the process of a one-time mass movement of large amounts of data from a source system to a destination system, in which the operation of data in the source system is terminated.

    During the migration process, we can't avoid a temporary downtime of both servers. Also, the complexity of the process depends on the type and volume of data being moved. There are steps to help facilitate the process:

    1. Determine the type and status of the data, such as format and confidentiality, taking into consideration any changes they may receive during migration.
    2. Plan your migration time: since migration involves a downtime period, this can affect the work of all project members.
    3. Back up your data in order to have access to all available files and, if required, use them for recovery.
    4. Monitor the process, even if everything goes well; there may be some issues after the process is completed.

    Depending upon your options, the following migration methods are available:

    Migration via Control Panel.
    If the source system uses one of the control panels, the migration process will be much simpler. They usually contain back-up and recovery options. For example, during your website migration, you may need to update the configuration to use your VPS' IP address. When the installation is complete, you will need to update your DNS records to point to your VPS.

    Migration via a unique or non-use Control Panel.
    If the source system (hosting provider) does not use a control panel or uses its own, or you do not want to use a control panel for your VPS, then you'll have to do some extra steps. Using the example of a website migration, once you backup and complete your configurations, you may need to manually install additional software on your new VPS.

    Migration carried out by LLHOST INC. technicians.
    LLHOST INC. team is ready to help you set up the server, organize and prepare the migration. To do this, select any VPS Netherlands plan and, after server activation, send a migration request through the ticket system. Data transfer is done automatically by fully copying and then deploying the entire file system and its settings (OS and software) on the new platform, excluding temporary files or directories.

    To reduce your concern about the migration process even more, LLHOST INC. is coming up with an interesting offer for you: a -35% discount on all VPS Netherlands plans for 3 months of the monthly billing cycle. Hurry up until January 13, 2023 as the offer is only available for one week!

    Avatar: The Way of Water. Worldwide release.

    Released in 2009, “Avatar” was a huge success and continues to be the highest grossing movie of all time. So 13 years later, since the movie hit the public, we're going back to Pandora. December 16, 2022 is the day when the world will see the next chapter of the story. It is the date of the world premiere of the eagerly awaited sequel "Avatar: The Way of the Water".

    The release of the movie was planned for December 2014. However, its launch has been delayed eight times because of multiple pre-production problems, as it was designed to be a visual show with staggering effects and the best 3D technologies. The pre-broadcast took place earlier in London, and almost all participants agreed that director James Cameron is definitely creating different visuals of everything we've seen on the screen before. And “Avatar: The Way of Water” also has a more personal emotional development of the story. 3 hours and 12 minutes of CNA hours seems to make up for the long wait between films.

    In an interview, Cameron said, "I felt I had to do the same thing [as Jackson did with The Lord of the Rings]. I had to play this as if the books already existed. So the only way for us to do that was to write all the scripts and let the actors read all the scripts and see where their characters were going and what it all meant".

    Long before he began working on the sequel, he spent several years writing “The Avatar Bible”, where he described the entire saga: world, mindset and characters. And this time, James Cameron also took on the role of screenwriter with Josh Friedman, author of War of the Worlds, and Terminator: Dark Fate.

    An official synopsis says, "Jake Sully is living with his new family on planet Pandora. Once the troubles begin to follow them, he co-operates with Neytiri and the Na'vi army to protect his planet". This only unveils the mystery as well as the trailers.

    The production crew specified that the film focuses on Jake, whose human consciousness has been permanently loaded into his Na'vi body. Along with Neytiri and their children, he is forced to leave their home and explore other areas of Pandora, including its oceans, in order to save their family. While “Avatar: The Way of Water” is the sequel to the first film, the team has repeatedly pointed out that this is a full-fledged story.

    Looking forward for Cameron to once again makes a 3D revolution in cinemas, we're going to the premiere of “Avatar: The Way of Water” with you.

    And yes, good news are never not much! We remind you that -50% discount for VPS Netherlands from LLHOST INC. with DDoS protection (L3-L4) is extended until December 25, 2022.

    Check out all the technical specifications on the website and choose the appropriate plan. The discount applies to 3 months of the monthly billing cycle and cannot be combined with other special offers.

    6 tips to check the server before the Christmas holidays.

    Winter holidays always come with long weekends. Someone decides to spend it with family and friends, and someone leaves for a vacation. Anyway, you don't want to get back to work, even for a minute.

    We have prepared for you a list of recommendations to check the server before the long vacation, so that you can celebrate without worrying about your projects.

    1. Check your balance.
    Server invoice is the most important and, at the same time, most often forgotten to pay. Check the time frame of your services. We recommend that you make sure that your balance is not zero. It is even better to pay in advance so that the server is not stopped for non-payment. Also, in the case of a bank payment method, take into consideration some time for the funds to be credited to your account.

    Don't forget that you also need to verify payment for additional services, such as domain name, SSL certificate (if used), IP addresses, services provided under a paid subscription. For example, an SSL certificate has to be installed on the server instead of the expired one, even if you have automated payments.

    2. Set up tracking.
    During the holidays, there is always an increased load on the servers, which can result in their downtime. The risks of other external factors are also not excluded as well. A tracking service will notify you of any issue that occurs. It can be achieved through scripts that send emails or by installing special tracking apps.

    3. Keep logins and passwords within your reach.
    Ensure that you always have access "keys" with you, at least to the main resources: your email account, personal account and server. They can be saved, for example, in a password manager or notes on a mobile phone. This will save you time and allow you to solve any problem promptly, because it may happen that due to the lack of access to a resource, any minor problem will turn into a global one.

    4. Ensure free storage.
    Lack of disk space is one of the frequent reasons why your project is unavailable. You can test the upload to the server with special utilities, commands, or tracking services. We recommend that you check these settings:
    • cache space that your project requires,
    • log files,
    • backups that are saved to the same disk,
    • at least 40% of space is available.

    5. Keep backup copies.
    Backup is necessary to form a data archive that is protected from changes and damage, as well as to restore the project in case of damage or failures in the original source. Save all data back up before the holidays using the "3-2-1" rule. It consists of creating 3 copies at a time, 2 of which are stored on physical storage devices and the other in digital format.

    6. Improve network security and DDoS protection.
    Server security is always our priority, and is particularly relevant during vacations. Almost every Internet project, from business applications to web development and online services, requires increased fault tolerance, performance and data protection. We recommend switching passwords and using servers with anti-DDoS services. VPS Netherlands from LLHOST INC. include DDoS mitigations that scan all incoming traffic and cut suspicious packets in accordance with established rules.

    These simple tips will allow you to avoid unnecessary worries on the server during the winter vacation. In addition, you can also get a DDoS-protected virtual server for half the price!

    LLHOST INC. is still on Black Friday MONTH! Until December 25, 2022 VPS Netherlands are available with a -50% discount on the website or with the promo code #BlackFriday50. This promotion is valid for 3 months of the monthly billing cycle for an unlimited number of users.

    Managed vs Unmanaged server. Which one to choose?

    Hosting providers offer a wide range of products to meet all the users' needs. There are some basic specifications in order to choose a VPS:
    - high uptime,
    - technical support available 24/7,
    - ability to scale plans,
    - additional security services, etc.
    You can learn more about this from the post in our blog.

    To continue the subject of VPS selection, let's look at what managed, and unmanaged servers are, and what are used for.

    Managed hosting ensures that your server is administrated by the provider. In fact, you get additional services to the standard configurations of unmanaged hosting, such as software updates, mailbox, database management, installation of add-ons, which, of course, are reflected in the price of the plan. It can be recommended for users with no technical knowledge on server operation. As usually, the functionality is limited and depends on the service provider.

    An unmanaged VPS is completely controlled by the customer. The software and operating system configuration, as well as total control over server configurations and operation, allow you to customize the server environment according to your preferences.

    An unmanaged VPS has several advantages over a managed VPS.

    The primary benefit of an unmanaged VPS is full control (in terms of bandwidth, memory, software installation and storage usage). Flexibility in settings allows you to install selected applications that best meet your needs or are required for specific tasks. It's easy to create a separate environment within the server or isolate resources for different projects. Finally, unmanaged VPS servers are ideal for businesses with high bandwidth requirements.

    What factors should be considered when choosing an unmanaged VPS?

    Virtualization. Learn the available features of virtualization software. VPS Netherlands are based on KVM, which has more core settings and more software options available.

    Resources. Over time, your project will expand and require additional resources. Ensure you can scale your plan as needed.

    OS compatibility. Not all providers offer unmanaged Windows VPS or all Windows OS distributions, and the same can be said about Linux.

    OS distributions. If you need a specific OS version, make sure it's on the provider's services list.

    Uptime. Make sure your server provider has minimal downtime. VPS Netherlands’ uptime rates to date are 99.9%.

    Additional services. Some projects may require additional components, such as IP addresses. We recommend choosing a provider that can offer these services.

    Technical support. Despite the fact that an unmanaged VPS implies full control over the system, LLHOST INC.'s multi-lingual support is available 24/7 for any queries.

    The decision to select a VPS is based on your technical experience, project needs, budget, etc.

    We just want to kindly remind you that Black Friday MONTH is in full swing! And VPS Netherlands from LLHOST INC. gets -50% OFF with the promo code #BlackFriday50! Hurry up to apply it before December 25, 2022 and share it with your friends, because the promo code can be applied by an unlimited number of users.

    How to choose a VPN?

    VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a technology for a secure and private connection to a network that allows access to resources and services with geo-restrictions. There is a great number of VPN services available today, both applications and servers, both paid and free (their comparison can be found here). And if all the providers declare anonymity, then how to choose the best service among similar ones?

    Let's start with the main advantages of using a VPN:
    • anonymous use of the Internet;
    • data encryption during transmission;
    • access to resources with geo-restrictions;
    • remote access to work/home PC;
    • safe connection to the public Wi-Fi hotspots.

    What are the criteria for choosing a VPN provider? We have prepared 9 tips for you to help you find the perfect service for you.

    1. Choose the possibility of multi-connections.
    If you want to use VPN for all the gadgets in your home, or even an entire department at work, it's important to choose a VPN provider that allows you to connect multiple devices at the same time.

    2. Check device compatibility.
    Some VPN services support certain operating systems. When choosing a provider, it's important to make sure that all platforms you use are supported.

    3. Explore possible payment methods.
    Being able to pay for the services from any country in the world in any currency, including ******currency, is one of the advantages of LLHOST INC. Earlier we've published a full list of available ways of payment in our blog.

    4. Pay attention to the Data Centres' locations.
    Using a VPN will always cause slower speeds. It can be a slight slowdown or a sharper one. The farer you are to the Data Centre, the more speed loose will be. So we recommend connecting to VPN servers that are geographically closer to you.

    Important! Keep in mind, that the power of your device as well as the speed of your Internet connection also affect the overall download speed.

    5. Make sure the provider is reliable.
    A free VPN is characterized by traffic restrictions, bandwidth restrictions and, most importantly, a dubious privacy policy. This means that your personal data can be provided to the third parties.

    6. Identify geo-blocked content locations.
    In order to access geo-restricted resources, it is important not only to connect to a VPN server, but also to make sure that the content is available in the country(s) you connect with. VPN servers from LLHOST INC. have frequently reaffirmed that they can bypass all blocking (for example, Netflix).

    7. Check bandwidth limitations.
    Bandwidth limits, as well as exceeding the allocated amount of bandwidth, can affect the speed.

    8. Query the protocols to be used.
    For increased privacy, make sure your provider uses modern VPN protocols such as OpenVPN and WireGuard.

    9. Look for a VPN provider with customer support.
    All VPN services are constantly working on optimization, so it is very important to be able to contact customer support at any time. The ideal solution is 24/7 technical support.

    These simple tips, combined with cybersecurity rules, will help solve the issue of confidentiality and data safety, as well as protect against hacking threats, which is especially important for business security and maintaining brand reputation. Therefore, VPN servers from LLHOST INC. not only provide an additional level of privacy and security, but also guarantee a high-speed connection and access to any content around the world.

    Today we have prepared a special offer for all our followers: a -14% discount on VPN servers from LLHOST INC. for 3 months with a monthly billing cycle. Until November 25, 2022, enter the promo code #choosevpn in a special field when you place your order. Do not forget to tell your friends, because the promo code is valid for an unlimited number of users!

    Why does your business need a virtual server?

    Every business owner, in order to dominate the market or expand his company, has to optimize it with various IT technologies. So, different online shops, information portals and websites of companies not only host their own website, but also implement various control systems related to the storage and management of information. In this case, virtual servers can assist you. They are an excellent alternative to physical servers, which take up a lot of office space and require a significant investment to organize and maintain.

    A virtual server can perform many different tasks, being, in fact, a universal solution for any business. Let's consider the most popular of them.

    Corporate websites.
    Hosting your corporate website requires significant processing capacity and enhanced security. This is a prerequisite for the web resources that store personal data. Virtual servers have an individual environment with its operating system and software used only by your company.

    Online shops.
    For a fast and steady running trading platforms, you just need a powerful virtual server. According to the statistics of Data Insight, a research agency specializing in the Internet market, one of the most important factors for online shoppers is the quick download pages and the ability to make a successful purchase.

    Media content platforms.
    These include photo stocks, video hosting, music services, etc. Such resources must withstand a large server load, not to cause delays when uploading and downloading files. A virtual server will provide maximum speed even during extreme traffic peaks.

    Email server.
    It's quite impossible to imagine a company that does not use email. It is used both in internal communication and in communication with customers and partners: for promotional mailings, notice updates, etc. A unique domain email address, control and restrictions on accessing the mailbox, creation of new or additional email addresses - these are the main advantages of your own email server.

    IP calls.
    Virtual Servers LLHOST INC. can be used for VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) calls. They are powerful enough to install all the required software and store all the call recordings. It is a great solution for call centres, customer support or companies whose activities are related to telephone calls.

    Virtual work environment.
    We've already covered all the advantages of a remote desktop. Virtual work environment is an ideal solution for different departments or employees working on the same project and interacting with each other on an ongoing basis. This will allow access at any time from anywhere, while protecting the company's confidential information.

    Automation of business processes.
    Most companies have already implemented 1C, CRM, databases, billing systems and others to automate their business processes. That software can be easily setted up and configured on a virtual server with access limitation depending on the employee's activities.

    It is recommended to store databases on a separate server. This will prevent the loss of information in case your PC is affected by a malicious virus or an attack on the company's website, because you're the only one who has access to the server.

    Your own VPN.
    While free VPNs are insecure as well as many paid apps are geo-restricted, it's easy to set up your own VPN on a virtual server to increase your online privacy and security. You can find all the instructions on How to set up your own VPN on LLHOST INC. virtual servers in our blog.

    Creative agencies.
    Virtual servers allow you to connect an unlimited number of domains and databases. Thanks to this, you will be able to develop and test numerous websites or services, which will run uninterruptedly.

    This is why a virtual server is one of the prerequisites for the development and expansion of any company. Enjoy all the features of a physical server like high performance, maximum speed, etc. by using LLHOST INC. virtual servers without substantial investments in infrastructure. Enter the promo code #whyvps when ordering any virtual servers from LLHOST INC. until November 18, 2022, and benefit a -13% discount for 3 months on a monthly billing cycle.

    Data Centers and information security.

    Data security has always been and continues to be an LLHOST INC priority. This subject is always relevant when choosing a hosting provider, since you entrust your confidential information and want to make sure that it is protected safely. Is it real?

    Now imagine the scene: a typical computer genius attempts to obtain confidential or classified information in a secret hideout. All manipulations performed on the laptop are commented as: "Getting around the firewall and accessing the data center." This is the moment when any technician sighs loudly at this blockbuster. And all of us starts thinking seriously about the safety of personal data if, according to the movie script, anyone can access it in seconds.

    Now first things first.

    A Data Center is a special room (or building) in which powerful computing resources are concentrated: servers and data storage systems. Their main functions are: storage, processing and transmission of the information. In addition to server and network equipment, each data center is equipped with engineering systems, security and monitoring systems that ensure efficient operation and protection of the entire complex. Also, any data center provides secure communication channels through which data is exchanged.

    How exactly do Data Centers protect personal information?

    Protection of engineering components.
    There are thousands of servers in Data Centers, and all of them are monitored day and night by a “smart” control system: from air conditioning to resource consumption. Each server is equipped with its own power supply, and the entire data center with a backup power supply system. It continues to operate normally even if power is lost.

    Premises protection.
    Each data center has its own range of security protocols. The highest security level is intended for military and financial organizations of special importance.

    Data centers used by LLHOST INC. are 24/7 under video surveillance. They are protected by multi-level access control and biometrics scanning. Each server rack is also under lock. These security measures, combined with the physical presence of security personnel, ensure that the data center as well as personal data is protected 24/7.

    Protection of data transmission channels.
    Nearly 50% of data centers experience DDoS attacks every year. The most frequent are threats of hacking, theft or deletion of data stored on servers. Our networks have both firewall protection and threat detection systems to help mitigate and prevent DDoS attacks. Information protection is achieved thanks to means of detection and elimination of the malicious code, as well as traffic redistribution to other nodes. You can be sure that your data is strongly protected at any LLHOST INC. data center.

    Protection from external factors.
    As was mentioned before, data centers are usually protected by high-tech security measures to ensure maximum physical security of personal data. For example, each data center used by LLHOST INC. is equipped with the latest fire extinguishing and smoke detection systems. Their intelligent system is activated independently in case of any smoke. Additional protection against external threats such as natural disasters is provided by security rooms and safes, where server equipment is reliably protected from any threatening factors. The choice of the location of data processing centers is not accidental, these are the safest corners of the world, although distant, but in proximity to the Internet exchange ports in order to maintain a high connection speed.

    You can be confident that LLHOST INC. is making every effort to keep your data safe and sound. So, the promo code #safeandsound guarantees a -14% discount on all virtual server (OVS) plans from LLHOST INC.

    Terms of the discount:
    • is available for any virtual servers (OVS) plan.
    • can be applied for 3 periods of monthly billing cycle.
    • is valid until October 28, 2022.
    • is active for an unlimited number of users.

    HDD vs SSD. Which is better?

    When selecting a server, processor specifications and storage capacity are regarded as key factors. In any case, the function of a storage for a server differs from that of your PC as every server must store a great amount of data with 24/7 access. Thus, the main characteristics are:
    • high performance,
    • minimal response time,
    • safety of data and possibility to recover it.

    Modern storage media are represented by HDD (Hard Disk Drive) and SSD (Solid-State Drive). What is that? What are the differences between HDD and SSD? What kind of storage to choose? The answers to these and many other questions can be found in our today's article.

    So what are HDD and SSD?

    HDD (Hard Disk Drive) is a storage device based on magnetic recording technology. Reading and writing data from a hard disk is performed by the sensing head located above a rotating magnetic plate (similar to the phonograph). It was invented by IBM (International Business Machines) in 1956 and immediately became a very popular type of storage, decreasing in size and increasing in capacity over time.

    SSD (Solid-State Drive) is a type of storage that uses electronic circuits to store data instead of moving parts. The operating principle is based on semi-conductors that change the electrical condition of the trillions of circuits contained in the drive. They have no moving parts, which helps to avoid problems with data loss or disk damage (similar to a USB flash drive).

    Both HDD and SSD are similar in their physical features, but they have totally different ways to store and recover data. However, both technologies come with their advantages and disadvantages. Let's talk about the most obvious facts.

    HDD’s speed is very low.
    Speed ​​is the main difference between an SSD and HDD, when servers have to perform multiple IO operations (Input-Output), and information is not distributed sequentially. The speed of an SSD is not mechanically limited, so it works better with random IO processes and reading or writing random information.

    SSD loses in terms of storage capacity.
    This is a major factor if you need a dedicated server for storing large-capacity data. One HDD can hold up to 16 TB. Although it is possible to increase the amount of memory with any storage device nowadays, the price-to-power ratio becomes the only difference.

    HDD is vulnerable to many external influences.
    This could be caused by sunlight exposure or high temperatures, fluids, dust, or sensitivity to other magnetic fields. Mobile parts of a hard drive may be damaged at any time and cause data loss. The architecture of the SSD makes it mechanically more reliable than a hard drive because it can withstand vibrations or shocks that are fatal to an HDD.

    SSD has a limited number of write cycles.
    Although SSD has a limited life-time determined by the number of write cycles, you should not worry about the data safety. SSD assets and smart planning can handle massive quantities of written data. For example, the controller evenly distributes data across all SSD sectors, levelling out its mechanical wear. Also, non-volatile flash memory cells used instead of RAM maintain their conditions when the power is switched off.

    What storage type is worthy to select?
    Of the two options, it is impossible to identify the winner, and there cannot be any clear answer to this question. Both technologies are relevant today, and the choice between them depends on the operations performed on the server. On some, the data are written more frequently than read, on others, inverses. So, video hosting basically requires data reading, logging systems, video surveillance or backup - recording, corporate information systems - both reading and writing. That's why HDD servers are suitable for long-term storage of data with a constant low load. But in case you need a server for quickly dealing with all the tasks under a heavy load, then an SSD is a must.

    The storage of all LLHOST INC. Virtual Servers (OVS) is based on a fast SSD, which has an advantage in terms of speed and response time compared to the HDD. They can easily perform a wide range of operational tasks that require fast loading, such as 1C, web development, 3D graphics and animation, audio and video editing, etc. Also, you have the opportunity to get a -13% discount on any virtual server (OVS) plan using the promo code #needforspeed until October 21, 2022.*

    With virtual servers (OVS) from LLHOST INC. the time for searching and reading data tends to zero!

    * The discount is valid for the 3-month period of the monthly billing cycle.

    12 proofs you need a VPN.

    Talking about VPN, privacy and data security is always in focus. We covered this topic in the articles Who is following us on the Internet? and Beware: Spy Apps! This is really important, because information such as IP addresses, proxies, provider, etc. can be intercepted if they are sent over an insecure network. It is the VPN that creates a private encrypted tunnel between the two networks, which protects all your data.

    However, there are many other uses for VPN that you may not even have heard of. Today we will talk about 12 of them:

    1. Access to blocked resources.
    In many countries of the world, several social networks are subject to censorship and blocking. For example, Facebook and Twitter are blocked in Algeria to prevent students from using them to get answers during exams. However, the blockage affects every user in the country. A VPN will help you bypass regional blocks of resources that are not available in your country.

    2. High speed of media resources.
    A VPN is your trusted companion for avoiding ISP (Internet service providers) speed limits on streaming media platforms like YouTube. In other words, a VPN will allow you to watch videos or movies across multiple platforms without annoying disconnects, buffers, or other barriers.

    3. International libraries and streaming TV.
    Streaming platforms like Netflix have different content in different countries. This may be due to copyright or censorship laws, as well as licensing agreements and price discrimination practices where the cost is different for one viewer or provider than it is for another. A VPN will allow you to access libraries that are not available in your area, as well as watch original programs from almost all TV channels in the world absolutely free of charge, bypassing geo-restrictions.

    4. Change of location.
    If, for whatever reason, you wish to hide your site from others, like employees or employers, a VPN will come to your rescue. For this, a server at the desired location will suffice.

    5. Online gaming without speed limits.
    Game developers often use BitTorrent for updates and fixed bugs. Such traffic significantly increases the load on the network, so it is "throttled" (intentionally slowed down) by Internet service providers to minimize bandwidth congestion. Using a VPN will help prevent those limitations.

    6. Shopping in foreign online stores.
    According to, 24% of online shoppers purchase goods on foreign marketplaces daily. By using a VPN, you can avoid the challenges on different financial systems and make your shopping experience more enjoyable.

    7. Anti-eavesdropping.
    We have already highlighted the threats of public Wi-Fi. Since such connections are not encrypted and not protected, the risk of being eavesdropped is quite high, which you can check by all the permissions of installed applications. Even legitimate apps that let you control your kids or your employees' activities are vulnerable to attackers. VPN not only masks the route of your Internet traffic, but also encrypts your data, hiding your presence on the network.

    8. Voice over IP (VoIP) calls.
    Using a VPN for VoIP calls can make your connection safe from a country where the Internet is strictly monitored or blocked. It is also a means to save money on VoIP calls. The cost of this type of connection depends on where you are, and switching your IP address to a server address may help you access cheaper rates.

    9. Safe connection to any Wi-Fi hotspot.
    All Wi-Fi connections are highly vulnerable and are considered weak when it comes to IT security (see paragraph 7). Keep in mind that a VPN helps you connect to any Wi-Fi network safely.

    10. Booking of air tickets and other services.
    Many airlines and service providers may have different data collection methods that are used to generate service charges based on your location. Just like in the case of VoIP, a VPN will help you get a better price and, in addition, get rid of the annoying follow-up ads.

    11. Marketing research on competitors.
    It is known that each visit to a website is registered automatically. You can be identified by this digital footprint. In this case, a VPN will help you stay incognito. That is especially important when you are researching a competitor and anonymity is crucial.

    12. The "Watch list".
    Traffic, especially illegal, is carefully monitored by international security agencies, such as MPAA (Motion Picture Association) in the US or GPC (Government Communications Center) in the UK. Identified offenders are recorded under the so-called "Watch list". A VPN allows you to download and share files without risk of being included into one of these lists.

    Those are just 12 reasons that prove the benefits of using a VPN. Highly secure encryption, IP masking, the ability to connect two devices at the same time, multilingual support - all this is about VPN servers from LLHOST INC. Take the chance to connect the service with an -11% discount for 3 months! Use the promo code #givemevpn when choosing any VPN plan from LLHOST INC. until October 14, 2022. Let your every connection to the network be as safe as possible!

    All about Remote Desktop.

    Have you ever been in a situation where you needed files or programs from a computer that is currently at home or at work? Or the project you are working on was not available while you were in a business trip? All this can be avoided if you have a Remote Desktop. It allows you to connect to your work or personal computer from anywhere in the world and access the files stored on it, or remotely share the screen with friends and colleagues as if you were sitting right in front of it.

    Remote Desktop is a technology that allows you to control a PC or server remotely via the Internet. The connection is implemented by assignment of the administrative rights of your device to be managed by others. The ability to connect from almost any device, be it a PC or laptop, tablet or smartphone, is available due to the fact that the remote server takes the entire workload. You do not overload your device with running processes, but simply get an image from the server screen and freely manage its system.

    Remote desktop on a virtual server is necessary for both private use and business. So you have a connection to your home computer at any time and access to your files and soft anywhere. And if you have to work with resource-intensive soft such like video editing, 3D modeling programs or run a video game that your home PC cannot keep up, Remote Desktop can help solve this problem.

    For any company, both large corporations and small businesses, it is a great opportunity to organize a remote workplace, allowing you to work from anywhere in the world, having access to corporate software on your work computer and work files. At the same time, all documentation is stored on one server, and access to it does not depend on the presence of the employee in charge in the office. You can perform all actions on a remote device: change software settings, share files, encrypt transferred data, hold conferences, connect webcams, remote projectors and other network devices. It is very important that you have possibility to assign employees access to certain folders.

    There are two options for organizing remote access:
    • Special programs that connect two workstations via the Internet. In this case, constant access to power and the Internet are essential.
    • Server rental, in which operational activities are performed on a remote server of the hosting service provider (therefore, the requirements for your devices are minimal), and it is accessed via the Internet.

    A remote desktop deployed on a virtual server has increased protection, while special programs, both free and with a purchased license, have an increased threat of hacking and unauthorized access to the local network.

    Now let's talk more about the areas in which remote desktop on a virtual server has a distinct advantage:

    It is well-known that the database should be stored within the company, not at an accountant's home. If you have ever lost your ledgers, or broke the contract with an accountant, then you understand how important is it. With a virtual server, you will always have access to accounting files.

    For security purposes, some bank clients are linked to the certain IP address and can only be accessed from one device. Virtual servers from LLHOST INC. have dedicated static IP address, which means that your bank account is always available for operations.

    Electronic archives.
    Remote desktop for the documents' archives contributes to the centralized storage of huge amounts of information. It is great for monitoring, statistics and data management.

    Exchange trading.
    To keep the network delay to a minimum, the server with bots that buy and sell assets should be located closer to the data centers. For example, LLHOST INC. has a data center in Amsterdam. You connect to the remote desktop from your location, and the bots trade directly from Amsterdam.

    Alternative OS.
    Some tasks or software may require a different operating system than installed on your device. Virtual servers from LLHOST INC. are the easiest way to deploy it.

    System administration.
    To system administrators, in order to manage the system and quickly troubleshoot malfunctions, remote access is a must.

    Educational platforms.
    Distance education is widespread today. Remote desktop technology is actively used by modern educational platforms for remotely students' access.

    Personal gaming server.
    If you want to set up a server to play online with friends, remote desktop can help in that.

    VPN as a Bonus.
    You can also deploy your own VPN server based on a virtual server from LLHOST INC. which will be a nice bonus for you.

    Remote Desktop is an essential technical tool in almost any area of life. It finds its application for both private and business use, being effective and secure.

    So, today we offer you a -14% discount on any LLHOST INC. virtual server (OVS) plan for three months with the #remote promo code, valid until October 7, 2022. A remote desktop based on OVS from LLHOST INC. is the best prompt solution to boost the PC performance without any substantial investments.

    Happy Software Freedom Day!

    Every year, Software Freedom Day is celebrated on the 3rd Saturday of September. It was initiated by the non-profit organization Software Freedom International. The idea of the celebration is to inform as many users as possible about free software opportunities.

    What is free software? Free software (FOS) is software that allows users to run software for any purpose, redistribute copies of it, and explore, study, or modify the source code. The most popular FOS today are: GNU and Linux operating systems, Firefox web browser, LibreOffice and OpenOffice office suites, etc.

    The Free Software Foundation was founded in 1983 by Richard Stallman, creator of the Unix-like free operating system GNU. He always highlights the word "free", accenting that "the real goal of such software is freedom."

    For the first time, Software Freedom Day was celebrated in 2004. 12 teams of volunteers participated in the event organization. They talked about the advantages of using free software in every sphere of life, with an idea to learn and share what they learned with others. Today, the geography of this event reaches about 100 countries.

    Initially, the holiday was held on August 28, but in 2006 it was replaced by the third Saturday in September. Every year, participating teams from around the world celebrate Software Freedom Day at the regional level. Local organizers choose the format of the event. So they may differ from region to region. Conferences, seminars, cultural and educational meetings, exhibitions have become traditional activities. Celebrations may also contain master classes, demonstrations, games, discussions, Instalfests, during which experts will help you install and learn the FOS.

    LLHOST INC. as well as Digital Freedom Foundation supports the distribution of educational content, including free software. Therefore, on Software Freedom Day, we are happy to keep the traditions of the holiday. Starting today and for two weeks (until September 30, 2022), our pleasure is to offer all our subscribers an -11% discount on all virtual (OVS) or VPN servers from LLHOST INC., which is valid for three months! How to get it, you may ask? It's simple: enter the promo code #softwarefreedomday in a special field when ordering any plan, and the discount will be applied automatically.

    Celebrate Software Freedom Day with LLHOST INC.!

    What is the difference between a server and hosting?

    Well, formally the term "hosting" is defined as "a service that runs servers connected to the Internet, allowing organizations and individuals to serve content or host services connected to the Internet". It is applied to all hosting services: from shared to dedicated servers.

    In the informal communication environment, the meaning of "hosting" has become almost synonymous with shared hosting. In this article, we will cover it from an informal point of view. To do this, let's find out the essence of those services in order to have a clear understanding of the capabilities of your own resource.

    It is known that absolutely all data on the Internet is stored on servers. Each server is a specially configured, powerful physical computer connected to the network 24/7. It can be fully managed by the user as a dedicated server (required for large organizations), or it can contain a certain number of virtual servers. This virtualization technology allows several virtual limited servers to run on one physical server. Each of the virtual servers is assigned a unique IP address. System files on such servers are completely isolated. This provides security at a sufficiently high level and protects against unauthorized access to user resources.

    Virtual private servers are ideal for high-load resources and show stable performance, even if there is a technical failure on one of the neighboring virtual servers. You can configure the server by yourself, open and close ports, set a privacy policy, and more.

    Complex managed hosting, such as hybrid (a combination of physical and virtual) can be applied to both dedicated and virtual servers, where the complexity of infrastructure deployment plays a key role.

    Colocation provides just the Internet connection, constant power and climate control, and system administration is carried out by users.

    Regarding the hosting, it is the service of providing disk space for hosting websites. All configurations are set up. Site management is implemented intuitive through the control panel’s user account. On the one hand, hosting is easy and simple to manage, and on the other hand, all resources are shared with “neighbors”, disk space and bandwidth are limited.

    Although technical skills are required to set up a virtual server, this issue can be covered by any control panel that is convenient for you, which will set up your server for hosting.

    In other words, hosting is a server with shared resources, configured to host and operate websites (with services already installed, such as control panel, mailbox, FTP, etc.). A virtual server, on the other hand, has dedicated resources and can be configured for any task (read more in our blog article
    How to choose a VPS?).

    Virtual servers from LLHOST INC. have a lot of advantages:
    • Affordable price in the VPS market.
    • Guaranteed allocated resources with no additional fees.
    • Full access to all server resources.
    • Set up flexibility: the ability to install any OP and software.
    • Dedicated IP address.
    • Projects of other users do not affect the performance of your server.
    • Ability to link the required number of domains.
    • The security of your server does not depend on "neighbors".

    Put your commercial project in the best environment! Choose Virtual Server (OVS) from LLHOST INC. and enjoy a -13% discount for 3 months with a monthly billing period. For this, enter the promo code #sharedvsdedic in a special field when ordering any OVS plan from LLHOST INC. till September 23, 2022.
