What is a High Availability DNS?

DNS systems

Solar VPS is a multi-service provider for the modern online business owner. One of our most popular features is the availability of multiple servers to ensure a website is always up. A Domain Name System (DNS) is essentially an address book, allowing internet users to access information online through various domain names, like or Clearly, this is an integral component of online use, but each aspect is not without its flaws or pitfalls.

To sum up this process, your web browser interacts with these sites by way of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. DNS systems do the work, translating domain names to IP addresses, which allows browsers to properly load up internet resources at that very moment.

Solar VPS knows how important it is to keep a website available during its moment of need. The majority of internet users are used to fast-responding technology. When you are waiting in line for coffee at the local cafe, you expect a quick check on your phone browser to respond. After all, you only have a few minutes to do so. The inability to see what you need to see is a big deciding factor for users. If a website does not respond in a timely manner, there is a near-90% chance that users will move on to another site–and unfortunately for a one-server business–to another provider of the thing they need.

Solar VPS can provide you with smoothly running DNS systems that take all that pressure away. DNS usage can make or break a business, no matter how long the brand has existed. Both established and foot-in-the-door websites need more than one server to truly be a contender. 

DNS Usage 

Websites that only feature one DNS server are susceptible to crashing when you need access the most. This is because everything hinges on that lone server and you are essentially out of luck if an error or malfunction occurs. For instance, if you are a new online business, one server is not going to cut it. Online traffic is often seasonal in nature, with certain industries having a heavy demand during the months of October through December; others experience that demand in the early months of the year, from January until summer rolls around.

Relying on one DNS server to get you through those needed months is not a good gamble. The more downtime you and your clients face, the lower your chances are for business growth. Constant downtime leads to user frustration and bad business reviews. A DNS is essential to movement, both digitally and in the realm of success.

Solar VPS can supply you with a DNS system to meet the high demand of seasonal targeted audiences. High availability DNS systems are synonymous with top-level operational performances and system uptime. After all, in the competitive online world, there is little room for failure.

No Room for Failure

Solar VPS’s DNS systems eliminate any holes in your plan for online dominance. We want you to succeed. To do this, you need to consider even the smallest details of what helps and what might hurt your chances of success. In situations where a website’s primary server fails, users expect a backup of some kind – anything to help give them access.

Solar VPS uses DNS systems to establish backup servers. These servers will carry the needed load automatically, without any proverbial cracks in the switch. Known as “failover,” our DNS system is essentially a safety net for your online business. For example, when one server stops responding, it will purposely failover to a different backup server instead. This process does not require a failure detection response from a specific server. Ultimately, your site is covered and will remain up for users to browse.

Establishing a constant, accessible site presence is key to providing your users with what they need. While faulty implementations or changes can still cause websites to fail and not load properly, multiple servers will catch a total crash whenever possible. As an online site runner, you cannot afford to take any chances. Solar VPS ensures that you never work without a net.

DNS Systems 101

Technically speaking, a server is a user’s initial entry point to a network. When a server crashes, a secondary DNS server will step in and stabilize everything. DNS systems are in communication with the other servers in the enterprise, which allows a redirect to an available server with no wait time, and during any time of day or night.

Speaking of availability, DNS systems store records; this information must be reachable at all times, regardless of where it is stored or uploaded. With a DNS system, if one server fails, another will automatically take its place. A downed server is not an uncommon happening. In all honesty, attempting to run an online business based on one server is asking for trouble. 

A backup is necessary to stop failures from frustrating and ultimately chasing away your clients. After all, half of the work is keeping your clients happy. DNS systems do just that. Solar VPS offers a monthly subscription – one that only requires you to pay for the services you actually use. Our DNS systems ensure that you have a server available at all times, just in case any unknown software changes or data entry trips a failure. Our computer technicians provide the following features to benefit your online business and websites:

  • High-Availability Multi-City DNS Cluster
  • Remote Desktop/VDI
  • Forex Trading
  • Manage A, MX, NS, CNAME, TXT, SRV Records
  • SQL Server Hosting
  • Game Server Hosting
  • DNS Management

High availability DNS systems will keep those clients (and yourself) with optimum access to your website and its wares. Our expert tech support can keep a site running at 100%, and we are always on hand to answer any emergency questions or concerns. With our years of experience and high-tech services, we will get you up and running within 24 hours. Contact Solar VPS today and join the solar system.

4 Ways to Use A Cloud Server

Cloud-based servers have revolutionized the internet market. Over the years, people have learned to use cloud servers to grow their businesses, start and finish projects, and filter through loads of data more efficiently.

For the uninitiated, cloud servers are virtual, not physical. They operate in a cloud computing environment. Cloud servers are designed to host and deliver information via their titular cloud computing platform and via the internet. 

One big advantage is that any of the stored data can be accessed remotely. Sometimes referred to as a “virtual server,” this technology can function as an independent unit thanks to all the necessary software being contained within. Users can rely on could-based servers to be stable, avoid software issues, avoid hardware issues, and be faster on all fronts.

Cloud Servers 101

A “cloud” is made up of multiple servers which are connected to the internet. These can be leased as part of a software or application service. Cloud servers are essentially “cloud computing,” involving a number of servers linked together, which helps systems balance the load of incoming/outgoing data sharing. This means that complex processes can be distributed across multiple potentially smaller computers that businesses utilize, as opposed to putting all the weight onto a singular machine. Some of the perks of cloud-based servers include web hosting services, data hosting and sharing across platforms, and the use of popular software and applications. Cloud servers certainly give their users an advantage over any potential hurdles. 

User Stability & Security

A cloud-based server gives the common business user stability and security. Using a dedicated server is an effective way to run an operation, but there are drawbacks, such as the inability to work on a consistent schedule. After all, online systems always need upgrades and resets, which ultimately puts your productivity on hold. For example, server maintenance can take hours to complete – sometimes even days. However, cloud servers are designed to roll with every little change. Solar VPS’s systems only experience automatic upgrades that are applied while you continue to use the platform for whatever needs to be done. User stability and security are possible with cloud-based servers because you never need to stop what you are doing. Momentum is vital to any operation. Solar VPS can give you that momentum.

No Software Shortages

Physical servers often experience software issues. These hiccups are unfortunately not far from your environment. Cloud-based servers keep these issues far away from your projects, which means neighboring cloud servers will not impact yours (or vice versa). This way, you are protected against untimely server overloads. You won’t experience any collaboration problems since all the files and data are stored in the same location. Cloud-based servers allow you and your team to make edits and updates to documents and applications in real-time.

No Hardware Setbacks

Hardware issues are a never-ending battle when it comes to physical servers. Not only do you have to worry about tech breakdowns and stability issues, but there is always the risk (even if it is a minimal one) that your laptop could be lost or stolen. A cloud-based server keeps your company data safe in the cloud, where you have popular security options like Two-Factor Authentication stopping points. With cloud servers, your website can be hosted on multiple servers, meaning your data is always accessible and does not rely on the hardware itself. 

In the event of a hardware failure, other computers can take the brunt of the load and keep your website performing as it should. Cloud-based servers are more reliable than a physical setup because no lone hardware failure will completely tank your system and lose all that sensitive data. Solar VPS can help you avoid debilitating hardware setbacks which can significantly cost you financially.

Faster Uses for Resource Gathering & Storage

Cloud-based servers provide faster uses for your resources. On a cost level, the price of a physical server versus a cloud server is not all that different, yet the features and advantages do differ. For example, your website will run much faster if it is cloud-hosted, and you can add extra memory and disk space whenever the need presents itself. Solar VPS aims to equip you with multiple management perks, including:

  • Start, Stop, & Reboot your Cloud Apps Pod
  • Console Access, Change Password
  • View Bandwidth Usage Graphs
  • Upgrade and Downgrade Resources

Our cloud-based servers work perfectly for teams working remotely, on the road, or just out of the office. With cloud-based storage, your distributed resources act as one. Cloud storage holds up to large distributions of data and resources. Your team will have shared access to documents, files, and data that you need to keep the operation going strong.

Dedicated servers require a good amount of personal monitoring and managing, not to mention the use of more IT resources to meet general upkeep needs. That said, cloud-based servers never require software installations or physical maintenance. Solar VPS’s cloud servers are fully managed. Your operation is in good hands. You will always have fast and easy access to your resources.

Solar VPS’s Cloud-Based Servers & You 

Solar VPS’s cloud-based servers allow you to scale data requirements up or down, which means you can accommodate any variations in your business from day to day. With a monthly subscription, you only need to pay for the services you actually use. Using the Windows Cloud as an example of features, you have access to:

  • Windows Development
  • High-Availability Multi-City DNS Cluster
  • Remote Desktop/VDI
  • Forex Trading
  • Manage A, MX, NS, CNAME, TXT, SRV Records
  • SQL Server Hosting
  • Game Server Hosting
  • DNS Management
  • Simple and Advanced Mode Operation
  • Customize your own TTL Settings

If you are curious about using a cloud-based server, ask our tech support, sales, and customer relations teams to answer any preliminary questions. We can help you set up within 24 hours so your projects don’t miss a beat. Contact Solar VPS today and join the solar system.

3 Beginner’s Tips for Web Security

Cloud VPS

Web security is an essential part of keeping your online investments safe and giving them the potential to grow. Common high-risk categories like financial information for you and your clients could be vulnerable to hackers if your web security is on the low end of quality. After all, your website can become a target regardless of its purpose, with sensitive data being the first thing to take a hit.

Information theft is often random, without any specific motivation other than causing a leak or creating general chaos. Obviously, no one wants to find out what a hacker has in mind after the fact, even if the breach is ultimately a prank versus actual identity theft. Business data, technical specs, and employee logins are popular targets for hackers. Being prepared is vital to stopping attacks before they happen. The following tips can help make the situation make sense: understanding what happens when sensitive data is lost.

Know What Happens When You Lose Sensitive Data 

Every day, companies lose critical information. You have seen these stories on the news with an alarming frequency. These losses can be something that the layman understands, like username and password leaks. Or they can be more technical, with thousands of ID numbers, credit card information, and software secrets being handed out like tickets in a movie theater–everyone can now see what was meant to be kept from public view. A lack of cybersecurity can lead to disastrous results, often halting business procedures for months – and sometimes permanently. Do a quick Google search and you will see plenty of examples of data loss tanking in-their-prime websites and brands.

Cybersecurity, the protocols used to protect computer-based systems, networks, data centers, and servers from online attacks, can help keep hacking disasters at arm’s length. A cyberattack can come in many different forms, often leaving no trace behind. This means that the damages are often irreparable, with nothing to do but hope for recovery. When you lose sensitive data, you have to funnel thousands of–if not more–dollars into PR campaigns to help current clients understand how you are going to make security changes.

Convincing clients who have lost their privacy to stay with your company is a near-impossible act – let alone gaining new clients once your website is in the headlines at CNN. Hackers steal sensitive and personal information with ease if your website is a sitting target. They will destroy or manipulate critical information. Having proper web security software can help protect your sensitive data. Believe it or not, there are hundreds of websites that only keep the barest of security minimums in place. The only reason that many dodge hackers is because no one knows who they are. However, this is certainly no security in itself, especially if you plan on growing your website and getting even the slightest of momentum built up. Basically, if you care about your site and don’t want to waste your efforts, then you need to invest in proper security versus waiting around with your fingers crossed for good luck.

Recognize a Scam When You See One

Online scams have a wider target range than “typical” hacking attacks do. Scammers can send their traps through various messaging and email applications with no specific target, which opens up the playing field for potential victims. Identity theft scams are extremely common, going back as far as the mid-1990s, yet people still fall for these scams. If you have a website, chances are you will be targeted even more than the everyday internet user. Scammers can use public information about your website to make their contact attempt seem legit. This includes header, images, and transaction numbers.

One reason scamming is so successful is down to not paying attention. Dealing with client data can be a bit repetitive, no matter how passionate you are about your services or products. Monotonous tasks often place site workers in an automated state, which leads to them clicking links that should not be clicked. These are errors that occur in a subtle way, yet can end up being a horrific, expensive, and embarrassing ordeal. Thankfully, a reliable IT company can ensure your data safety with strong anti-hacking, antivirus, and web security measures.

We offer ways to stop scammers at the door. If they get a foot inside, we can help cut them off before more damage is done. In our experience, we have seen scammers try every trick in the book. We can identify old, tried and true scams alongside new, more conniving viral scams. At Solar VPS, we understand that your data security matters. Our web security software keeps you safe by immediately investigating any suspicious activity reported on all levels of the playing field. 

Keep Recovery Backups

When it comes to web security, you have to protect yourself from heavy losses. Hackers often destroy data along with stealing it. In the event of a breach, you stand to lose hours of manual work, with simple correspondence and vital, work-in-progress data both on the chopping block. Keeping a recovery backup will keep your website from experiencing a 100% total loss. When hacks occur, there is a chance of recovery in the public eye. But without a backup, all that sensitive and crucial data will be forever lost, which makes your climb to the top nearly impossible. Solar VPS’s disaster recovery backups will provide you with enough space to salvage it all, featuring:

  • 20GB to 200GB Backup Capacity
  • Full Server Backups
  • New Data Backed Up Incrementally
  • Backups Stored for Three Days
  • Newest Backup Replaces Oldest
  • Multiple Points of Restore

Web security is a top priority for running a website. Maintaining records and sensitive data is the only way to keep your efforts safe and profitable. Compromising employee information or personal login info is preventable with Solar VPS.

Let Solar VPS Handle Your Web Security 

Current SolarSystem customers know that setting up an account is simple and fruitful in the long run. Once processed, there is little to no wait time, often taking less than 24 hours to be up and running. We can monitor security concerns such as multiple failed login attempts from the same IP address or from strange IP addresses. We take everything seriously, even something this common. Our tech support, sales, and customer relations can help you set up web security with us. If your site is unprotected, give us a call. If your security is outdated, give us a call. We are on standby to halt any harmful measures that come your way.

Popular Cloud-Based Applications You Should Consider

Installing and managing cloud apps can be a hassle without proper customization options. Ideally, apps should be installed in seconds, with the option to do so for several at once. Backing up and restoring apps is also important. An effective VPS gives you the means to do all of these, along with ease of browsing, full installation configuration, and access to hundreds of the best cloud-based applications, including WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Magento, and SugarCRM.

Popular Cloud Apps

It’s no surprise that certain cloud applications have larger clientele bases due to many people working from home or in an online capacity. The following list of cloud apps shows some of the go-to choices that clients from all industries choose.


WordPress is by far one of the most utilized word processing apps on the market, both for professional and casual projects. One reason for its popularity is the interface, which serves to help newbies along with veterans who want to experiment with their site layouts. Importing a blog or movie review was never easier. Users can swap out imagery to give their site a new look or cement certain themes for their clientele.


Open-source web content management systems like Drupal provide a back-end framework for at least 13% of the top 10,000 websites worldwide. Like WordPress, you have your choice of personal blogs and corporate needs. Drupal also works well for government sites. Systems use Drupal for knowledge management and for business collaboration because users can quickly and easily set up a complex and specific product in just a few steps. Drupal’s core release contains basic features such as user account registration and maintenance, menu management, RSS feeds, taxonomy, page layout customization, and system administration. With Drupal, a core installation can serve as a simple website, a single- or multi-user blog, an Internet forum, or a community website providing user-generated content.


Joomla is another CMS that is perfect for publishing web content. Your site can feature discussion forums, photo galleries, and e-commerce possibilities. Developed by a community of volunteers supported with the legal, organizational, and financial resources, Joomla is written in PHP, uses object-oriented programming techniques and software design patterns, and stores data in a MySQL database. Look no further for page caching, RSS feeds, blogs, search, and support for language internationalization. According to Wikipedia, Joomla was estimated to be “the third most used CMS on the Internet, after WordPress and Shopify.”


An e-commerce platform built on open source technology, Magento provides online merchants with a versatile shopping cart system that makes purchases easy for customers. This cloud application gives you control over the appearance, content, and functionality of an online store so it will reach its full potential. Magento offers powerful marketing, search engine optimization, and catalog-management tools. For creative types, Magento has a variety of plug-ins and themes to enhance any customer’s online experience. Known for custom functionality, Magento is designed to be utilized as an application by someone who does not have a whole lot of experience as a developer.


SugarCRM started as a game-changing open-source, but this freemium CRM product has turned into a highly popular, AI-driven cloud platform that keeps businesses heading into the future. This CRM platform delivers a high-definition customer experience without relying on high-maintenance CRMs that require too much manual entry. Developers of SugarCRM say that the platform does the work for you, so you don’t have to do all the heavy lifting of building your products from the ground up.

At Solar VPS, you will have user-friendly access to these apps and hundreds more. You can mass install or do singular installations and updates. Ask us how you can customize your Cloud Apps Hosting Plan today to capitalize on the most popular applications available.

What is the Difference Between Windows and Linux Cloud?

The cloud is one of the most reliable and fastest ways for users to connect. It allows them to perform daily tasks efficiently from anywhere. In fact, it is trending in business and entrepreneur settings because of fast connection speeds with the best security to back them up. However, when it comes to choosing which cloud-based system is the best option for you, things can be more difficult. At Solar VPS, we offer our clients two cloud services: Linux and Windows. 

What is the difference between Windows and Linux Cloud, and which one is the suitable investment for you? While both options can apply to most people, it is worth comparing the two to learn more about each individually. Learn more about Solar VPS by visiting our website today to discover our robust IT infrastructure service plans. 

Intro to the Cloud

First, let’s briefly overview what we mean by ‘the cloud.’ The cloud is any non-physical server system that can be used globally. We call it ‘the cloud’ because of its persistent connection, which can be accessed anywhere. The cloud can mimic physical servers without having to be established in a physical server. 

Elements of the Cloud

The cloud is composed of multiple elements. These elements include software and databases that are strung together to create a web or cloud-like system. Often, cloud systems are referred to as VPS systems, which stands for “virtual private servers.” Anyone with a reliable internet connection can access these virtual systems from any location on the planet. The information from these connections is stored in data centers. Although cloud systems are not based on physical servers, they still rely on these physical databases to store their data securely. 

Cloud Services with Solar VPS 

At Solar VPS, we offer two primary cloud services: Windows Cloud and Linux Cloud. We specialize in optimizing your critical connections, performance, quality, security, and speed with every plan we offer. The best part about our cloud services at Solar VPS is that every project comes standard with multiple functions and features you can count on for all your IT needs. However, we also offer additional add-ons to ensure you always have all the features you need to succeed. 

Choosing between Window Cloud and Linux Cloud services can seem daunting. However, the process isn’t as complicated as it seems once you learn the basics of each service plan. Plus, at Solar VPS, we pride ourselves on friendly and knowledgeable representatives who are happy to discuss both options with you. Let’s take a quick overview of both cloud services to grasp which might be the best option for you. 

Cloud Hosting

Overview of Windows Cloud Services at Solar VPS

With plans starting as low as $30, Solar VPS offers Windows Cloud services you can count on. Windows Cloud is a good choice for business owners of all backgrounds and sizes because it offers a secure connection with vital features for operating a business in an easy-to-use interface. Here are some typical applications of Windows Cloud systems that give you an idea of how handy it can be for businesses and individuals alike. 

  • SQL Server Hosting
  • Forex Trading
  • Remote Desktop/VDI
  • Windows Development

Overview of Linux Cloud Services at Solar VPS

However, Linux Cloud services are also a valuable asset to entrepreneurs and business owners. The best part is these plans begin at just five dollars for the most basic plan, with add-ons available as needed. Linux also offers five different ‘flavors.’ These options include CentOS, Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu, or CloudLinux. Linux is beneficial for the following uses:

  • DNS Hosting
  • Game Server or MySQL Database Hosting 
  • CPanel Hosting or Plesk Hosting
  • LAMP Development

Choosing Your Cloud Services

Choosing your cloud services can be overwhelming at first. However, with this understanding of some of the key differences between Linux and Windows cloud systems, you can begin to understand which is the best option for your needs. 

A helpful way to choose begins with writing down key features you need in your cloud system. This might quickly eliminate one of the two options. Listing your budget is another way to price out which option is best for you. Finally, speaking with one of Solar VPS’ friendly representatives is the best way to make your final decision for either cloud-based service. 

Also, remember that in addition to the essential feature on every Solar VPS plan, numerous add-ons are available. Knowing what you need is the most critical step to choosing the right cloud services for your needs. Asking questions is a crucial step to take. However, if you still find yourself stuck, looking over our add-ons might help you quickly customize the exact plan you need. 

At Solar VPS, security, reliability, and affordability come with every service we offer. You can trust that no matter which choice you make, we will have your back.

Intro to Linux Cloud

The cloud is one of the most popular server options over a physical server today. However, there are so many options within the cloud-based server world that it can be overwhelming to make the right choice. While cloud servers are a reliable choice for individuals and business owners alike, the perfect cloud-based system for each situation might differ. At Solar VPS, we understand the process behind seeking the best cloud services for your needs. Therefore, we don’t just offer one solution for a one-size-fits-all approach. At Solar VPS, we offer both Windows and Linux Cloud servers for your enterprise. 

At Solar VPS, we make the process of choosing the best server for your needs simple with the help of our trained IT experts. They are here to answer your questions, work with you, and help you find the best server fast! Here’s what you need to know about the Linux Cloud server in this handy introduction to Linux Cloud. 

Back Up: What Do We Mean by ‘The Cloud’?

Before we dive any further into understanding what Linux has to offer, let’s make sure we know what the cloud is in the first place. 

The cloud is any server that isn’t physically connected to the internet. Cloud servers give the public access to web-based systems. They have a global outreach because they are a vast interconnection that mimics physical servers without being one. 

What Does It Contain?

A cloud-based server contains many elements, even though it’s not physical. Some aspects of a cloud server include software, databases used to create the cloud web strung together, and security systems. Since cloud systems can be accessed through any reliable internet connection, the information has to be stored somewhere. Therefore, the databases work as the collection centers of all the data from the cloud servers. 

What Solar VPS Has to Offer with Cloud Servers

Linux Cloud Overview

First, let’s begin a quick overview of what Linux has to offer. Linux comes standard with numerous features, but add-ons are also possible with any Solar VPS Linux Cloud plan. This plan has a $5 starting cost for the most straightforward program. Linux also provides what we refer to as five different flavors: CentOS, Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu, or CloudLinux. 

Common Uses for Linux Cloud

The Linux Cloud server can be used for many different tasks. Here are some widespread applications of a Linux Cloud server.

  • DNS Hosting
  • CPanel Hosting or Plesk Hosting
  • Game Server or MySQL Database Hosting 
  • LAMP Development

Is the Linux Cloud Right For You?

You might be asking yourself if a Linux Cloud server is the right choice for your needs. How do you know that a Windows Cloud system does not have a better setup? 

The easiest way to choose between server systems is first to decide what you are looking for. What are your personal and enterprise needs? Other helpful questions include:

  • What is your budget?
  • What features can you live without?
  • Do you plan to change plans in the future?
  • Who else might be affected by your choice in Cloud systems?

After you ask yourself these initial questions, the process gets even more accessible. Just call Solar VPS, where we will team you up with a friendly IT infrastructure expert. They will set up an appointment with you to talk over your thoughts and considerations in budgeting. You will leave with the right cloud server plan for you. 

Linux Cloud Systems Offer Numerous Benefits

There are some of the numerous benefits of choosing the Linux Cloud system from Solar VPS. Cloud servers are very convenient since they can be accessed from anywhere. You never have to worry about being unable to access vital information for your business.  

They don’t rely on regular IT infrastructure; therefore, you can concentrate on more important matters than IT maintenance. This also means that you will save costs by not putting money into hardware server repairs. A cloud server is maintained by outside entities, rather than internal managing software or a hired IT specialist.
