Hard Hat Hosting has implemented a revolutionary new technology, the "Virtual Dedicated Server" or VDS. A VDS is created when a computer is divided into multiple, isolated servers. Each VDS has its own unique domain name (ie: "yourdomain.com") and performs much like a dedicated server.
More Secure and Stable than Shared Hosting
Unlike shared hosting which stores hundreds of users in the same directory, the data within your VDS cannot be accessed by other users on the same physical server. For added stability, VDS technology completely isolates each VDS, or 'slice' with it's own disk space, and network space.
Just like a dedicated server, each VDS has it's own independent operating system with isolated instances of Apache (web server), Sendmail (mail server) and all installed software. A crashed application (Apache, Sendmail, MySQL etc.) in another customer's VDS has no effect on your Virtual Dedicated Server.
All of our web hosting plans are built on VDS technology which securely isolates your services from other websites on the same server. With the VDS, site owners get full control over all aspects of website administration:
