  • What is the Tech Spec of Shared Cloud Hosting?

    Hi,
    This is a question about Shared Cloud Hosting, and in particular the Windows version - Cloud-01. Hopefully this is the right Forum??

    Please can you list the details spec of what is on offer, as your public website says only the basic details:


    Windows 2008 as you say, but is it R2?
    Plesk Control Panel - what version?
    IIS, is it v7.0 or v7.5?
    ASP.NET is v4.0 supported?
    Trust Level : Is Full Trust supported?
    Application Pool: Integrated or Classic?
    PHP version, I'm hoping for 5.3.x?
    20 Databases - all of one type, or can you mix and match?
    MSSQL 2005 would be fine, but is it 2008
    MySQL what version 5.1, or 5.5 or 5.6?
    Can you access the DBs directly as in normal shared hosting?
    Are the DB servers different than normal shared hosting? In other words if migrating from conventional shared hosting, and assuming less than 20, is there any need to change the server.

    thanks in advance....

      Hi Ryan,
      Thanks for giving these detailed specs.
      Looks good except for PHP, which I didn't realise was a dependency on Plesk.
      But, fortunately, 5.2.6 is just a couple of points above Joomla 1.7's min of 5.2.4
      and a pity, as there is some good new stuff in PHP 5.3 for developers

      Any idea of a timescale as to when you'll likely to move Windows Shared Cloud hosting to later releases of Plesk and PHP?

      thanks
      John

        Hi John,

        We did test Plesk in order to accommodate PHP 5.3.x however it breaks certain functions which are necessary for the operations of the control panel.

        You can perhaps consider a plain Windows VPS if you wish to have PHP 5.3.x. We can install it for you on a plain Windows VPS if required.
