SolarSystem Knowledgebase

Today we announced the release of the official Solar VPS SolarSystem Knowledgebase. The knowledgebase is a compendium of web hosting knowledge. With how to articles on everything from Apache, My SQl, CentOS, Debian etc. to video tutorials covering how to properly migrate data from your old cPanel to your new cPanel, the SolarSystem knowledgebase, our Information Deck, will serve as both an information portal for our users and the beginnings of a true Solar VPS community in which users can interact with articles and tutorials we post and interact with each other concerning posted or non posted articles & tutorials. In essence we are working to turn the SolarSystem Information Dock into a true social community. But before that happens, we want to take a moment to talk about our custom made SolarSystem Video Tutorials.

R1 Soft Data Backup Solutions

For every web hosting consumer, regardless if you’re a professional blogger or a mid-level ecommerce firm selling high quality diamond products, the data you advertise to your consumers is highly important to you. From your public facing data, to the applications your virtual private server (VPS) is running, SolarSystem R1 Soft Data protection means your data will never go lost again. SolarSystem Data Backup Includes:

  1. 10 Day Data Backup Solutions

  2. Restore any of your data from the last 10 backups, provided you have the available quota, i.e. sufficient space

  3. Bit-by-bit data backup. Instead of continually backing up 10GB of data, SolarSystem Data Protection solutions incrementally backs up new files which were added after your most recent data backup

Solar VPS Upcoming Product Announcement

Under Construction

Under Construction

Over the past few months, we have been feverishly working to improve our customer experience. Through making our Linux and Windows Cloud Hosting MGMT suite, the SolarSystem, easier to navigate, to installing and improving upon our SolarSystem A.I. one-click installer of over 260 web apps, to constantly updating our Windows and Linux OS versions to the most current OS’s, we have all been mad at work improving the SolarSystem. In this vein, we have something brewing which will be announced in the next few days. At the moment we can’t say exactly what we are about to release to our Windows and Linux Cloud Hosting consumers, however we can say it is going to make using the SolarSystem easier than eating piece of your grandma’s apple pie.

Once the announcement is made, this new feature will be available for public use. More importantly, we will be opening this feature up to our consumers so they can get directly involved with our services. Here at Solar VPS we believe the more information and interaction our consumers have with us, the better. We have designed this new feature to be exactly that. Easy information and great interaction.

Stay tuned for the announcement next week!

HTTP/HTTPS Website Monitoring

HTTP/HTTPS Website Monitoring

Clifton, NJ – On December 10, Solar VPS announced two new features to the SolarSystem – their Linux and Windows Cloud Hosting platform – a HTTP/HTTPS Monitor and a new Linux OS template. The new features will allow SolarSystem users to utilize a more comprehensive Cloud hosting solution. The two new features come on the heels of Solar VPS announcing two new SolarRay Website Uptime Monitoring nodes in Orlando, FL and Chicago, IL in addition to a new Linux and Windows VPS price structure.

Developed to meet the needs of consumers, the HTTP/HTTPS monitoring feature now allows SolarRay Website Uptime monitoring to specify if fetched content from the monitored URL in question should or should not contain a string. For example, if Google.com was to be monitored, the HTTP/HTTPS monitor user can choose to add the criteria “should contain” “I’m feeling lucky” or “should not contain” “I’m feeling lucky”. The addition to HTTP/HTTPS monitoring allows SolarRay to report website failure based on status codes and now strings.
