Business hosting is an analogue of shared hosting, but with guaranteed dedicated resources. Moving from regular hosting to business hosting implies a change resource principle hosting account. Within the framework of ordinary (non-business) hosting, the hosting account has access to all currently free server resources, but they can be used only for a limited time (no more than 100 processor minutes per day). The use of business hosting means that the hosting account will be guaranteed resources according to the selected tariff (the number of processor cores, the amount of RAM, the amount of disk space) and they can be used at your discretion in full volume without time limits (that is, without a limit CPU time).
The list of tariffs and their characteristics can be found at order page... When ordering any of the tariffs for the first time, you will receive a free 5-day test period.
Some of the key differences from shared hosting are listed in the table.
|Regular hosting||Business hosting|
|CPU time limit||The load should not exceed 100 processor minutes per day||None (the load is limited only by the resources of the selected tariff)|
|Number of inodes||200,000 for all tariffs (with the possibility of additional enlargement)||Limited by Linux file system (approximately 1 million inodes for every 16 GB of disk space)|
|PHP parameter value memory_limit||From 512 to 1536 MB in current tariffs1) and from 64 to 256 MB in archived||Expandable up to 1024 MB|
|PHP parameter value max_execution_time||30 seconds, can be temporarily increased to 300 with Turbo Boost||Can be increased up to 3600 seconds|
|The maximum execution time of scripts launched through cron or SSH||1 hour||4 hours|
|Additional services OPcache, Memcache(d), Redis and Sphinx||Ordered and paid separately||Included in the price of the tariff|
|The maximum amount of memory that can be allocated for Redis||512 MB||1/4 of the amount of RAM available in the current tariff|
|Hosting account country||Any of available||Ukraine, Russia or Germany|
|Possibility to use OpenLiteSpeed or PHP-FPM instead of Apache||Notavailable||Available|
|The number of concurrent processes (Entry Process Limit)||50 for Website, 100 for Best and Expert||Depends on tariff: 200 (2G), 300 (4G), 400 (6G), 500 (8G), 600 (16G), 700 (32G)|
|MySQL version change||Notavailable||Available|
|Maximum MySQL query execution time||30 seconds||3 hours|
|Number of tables and database sizes||Each database must contain no more than 1000 tables and be no more than 2 GB in size, the total volume of all databases must not exceed 3 GB||Limited only by the amount of disk space of the selected tariff|
|Number of concurrent connections to MySQL||No more than 50||Depends on tariff: 120 (2G), 180 (4G), 200 (6G), 200 (8G), 200 (16G), 200 (32G)|
|Limit external connections to MySQL per minute||No more than 10||Absent|
You can switch to a business hosting plan by instructions... In this case, the hosting account with all the settings will be automatically transferred to the selected tariff and there is no need to perform manual data transfer actions. After a tariff change, it usually takes about 15-30 minutes for the changes to take effect.
If after changing the tariff there are difficulties in the operation of the sites of the hosting account, then first of all, you should familiarize yourself with the information about the load and the resources consumed by the hosting account on the charts at the bottom of the section “Hosting"(100 on the CPU graph means full load of one core, 200 - two, and so on). Perhaps the resources of the initially selected tariff were not enough for the normal operation of the hosting account and it is necessary either to increase them by switching to a higher tariff, or to work on optimizing the sites and reducing the load they create in order to fit into the resources of the current tariff.
