Data Centers and information security.

Data security has always been and continues to be an LLHOST INC priority. This subject is always relevant when choosing a hosting provider, since you entrust your confidential information and want to make sure that it is protected safely. Is it real?

Now imagine the scene: a typical computer genius attempts to obtain confidential or classified information in a secret hideout. All manipulations performed on the laptop are commented as: "Getting around the firewall and accessing the data center." This is the moment when any technician sighs loudly at this blockbuster. And all of us starts thinking seriously about the safety of personal data if, according to the movie script, anyone can access it in seconds.

Now first things first.

A Data Center is a special room (or building) in which powerful computing resources are concentrated: servers and data storage systems. Their main functions are: storage, processing and transmission of the information. In addition to server and network equipment, each data center is equipped with engineering systems, security and monitoring systems that ensure efficient operation and protection of the entire complex. Also, any data center provides secure communication channels through which data is exchanged.

How exactly do Data Centers protect personal information?

Protection of engineering components.
There are thousands of servers in Data Centers, and all of them are monitored day and night by a "smart" control system: from air conditioning to resource consumption. Each server is equipped with its own power supply, and the entire data center with a backup power supply system. It continues to operate normally even if power is lost.

Premises protection.
Each data center has its own range of security protocols. The highest security level is intended for military and financial organizations of special importance.

Data centers used by LLHOST INC. are 24/7 under video surveillance. They are protected by multi-level access control and biometrics scanning. Each server rack is also under lock. These security measures, combined with the physical presence of security personnel, ensure that the data center as well as personal data is protected 24/7.

Protection of data transmission channels.
Nearly 50% of data centers experience DDoS attacks every year. The most frequent are threats of hacking, theft or deletion of data stored on servers. Our networks have both firewall protection and threat detection systems to help mitigate and prevent DDoS attacks. Information protection is achieved thanks to means of detection and elimination of the malicious code, as well as traffic redistribution to other nodes. You can be sure that your data is strongly protected at any LLHOST INC. data center.

Protection from external factors.
As was mentioned before, data centers are usually protected by high-tech security measures to ensure maximum physical security of personal data. For example, each data center used by LLHOST INC. is equipped with the latest fire extinguishing and smoke detection systems. Their intelligent system is activated independently in case of any smoke. Additional protection against external threats such as natural disasters is provided by security rooms and safes, where server equipment is reliably protected from any threatening factors. The choice of the location of data processing centers is not accidental, these are the safest corners of the world, although distant, but in proximity to the Internet exchange ports in order to maintain a high connection speed.

You can be confident that LLHOST INC. is making every effort to keep your data safe and sound. So, the promo code #safeandsound guarantees a -14% discount on all virtual server (OVS) plans from LLHOST INC.

Terms of the discount:
• is available for any virtual servers (OVS) plan.
• can be applied for 3 periods of monthly billing cycle.
• is valid until October 28, 2022.
• is active for an unlimited number of users.


HTTP error codes.

Every Internet user at least once stumbled upon errors that are displayed when trying to access a website. Technically, it works like this: the server accepts requests from the user via a browser (or a client), processes information and gives the answer in the form of a numeric code that indicates the response status.

HTTP status codes are standardized three-digit codes that a web server returns in response to HTTP requests from network clients. The first digit indicates the status class. Currently, there are five classes of status response codes (depending on which you need to take certain actions):
1. Informational (100–199).
2. Successful (200–299).
3. Redirection (300–399).
4. Client error (400–499).
5. Server error (500–599).

Successful and Informational server responses remain invisible for us, while codes referring to a request processing error are displayed on the screen. In this article, we will analyze the main standard types of errors and the possible causes of their occurrence.

4** Client error response (400-499).
HTTP status codes 400-499 indicate an error on the client side of the browser. For example, a request for a non-existent page or lack of valid authentication information. Also, it may be incorrect settings of the web server, site scripts, etc.

Error 400. Bad Request.
Indicates that the request cannot be understood by the server, as it was not made correctly. An invalid URL may have been specified, or a technical failure occurred while transferring data for one of the following reasons:
- unstable Internet connection;
- blocking data transfer by antivirus or firewall;
- browser attempting to download a file that is too large;
- corrupt or expired cookies.

Error 401. Unauthorized.
This code means that authentication is required to access the resource. The login and password were not included in the server's request.

Error 403. Forbidden.
The server cannot fulfill the request due to access restrictions on the resource. In other words, restrictions were imposed by the server administrator or developers. Reasons may be an attempt to access web server system resources such as .htaccess or .htpasswd files, or from a blocked IP address.

Error 404. Not Found.
It is the most common error code. The server cannot find the file or page. The reason may be:
- wrong page address;
- the page has been moved or deleted;
- technical failure due to which the page is temporarily unavailable.
The 404 error code is also used to hide the real reason for refusing to process a request. For security reasons, a 403 error can be disguised as a 404 error.

Error 405. Method Not Allowed.
For each type of operation (download, data transfer), the HTTP protocol requires its own method: GET, POST, and others. This error means that the method defined in the Request-Line cannot be applied to the current resource. It can be displayed, for example, when trying to process files using the POST method instead of the Apache server, or when the interaction between the POST method and the FastCGI module is incorrectly configured.

Error 406. Not Acceptable.
It is a quite rare error that means "the server issues information in a form that the browser or crawler cannot recognize due to data compression or an unsupported format".

Error 407. Proxy Authentication Required.
The error is similar to code 401. The only difference is the authentication is required for the proxy server. As usually, the answer contains recommendations for its fixing.

Error 408. Request timed out.
It means that server timed out for transmission from client. It occurs when large sized files are being transferred, or there is a temporary loss of Internet connectivity, or the server is temporarily overloaded. You can solve this error simply by reloading the page, as well as checking the Internet connection or visit the resource later.

Error 409. Conflict.
Indicates a conflict between the request and the server configuration. Possible reasons:
- conflict with proxies through which the server is accessed;
- access conflict between files on the server itself;
- virus software on the user's device;
- failures in the browser.

Error 410. Gone.
It is similar to a 404 error: The requested page or document is not available. However, a 410 error is displayed when the requested resource has been irreversibly deleted.

Error 411. Length required.
When files are transferred by certain methods and the amount of transferred data is limited, the server refuses to accept a request without a Content-Length header.

Error 412. Precondition failed.
This error means that a precondition processing failure or error was encountered while checking one or more request header fields. To fix the error, it is usually enough to clear the cache and cookies.

Error 413. Request Entity Too Large.
It is displayed when the request is larger than the web server can handle, such as when a file is too large to download. To eliminate it is recommended:
- to compress an image or video before uploading to decrease file size;
- do not upload multiple files at the same time;
- to allow the large file size by changing the settings of the web server that are referred to downloading.

Error 414. Request-URI Too Long.
The server is rejecting the request because the specified URI is too long. This error can occur when the CMS code is configured incorrectly. In the administration panel, each time you go from page to page, data with parameters is added to the URL until the link exceeds the limit. Also, the frequency of displaying error 414 may indicate hacking attempts.

Error 415. Unsupported Media Type.
The server refuses to process a request with the specified data type because the request body has an unsupported format.

Error 416. Range Not Satisfiable.
The server cannot process the request because the Range field in the request header is specified by a range outside the resource.

Error 417. Expectation Failed.
The server for some reason cannot satisfy the value of the requested Expect field header and refuses to process the request.

Error 422. Unprocessable Entity.
This error indicates that the server cannot perform the request because one or more elements may have a logical error.

Error 423. Locked.
The server is refusing to process the request as one of the required resources is blocked to apply this specified method.

Error 424. Failed Dependency.
This error occurs when the server's implementation of the current request depends on another operation that cannot be performed.

Error 426. Upgrade Required.
The server requested to update the connection protocol, but SSL is not supported by the client.

Error 429. Too Many Requests.
Indicates that the user has sent too many requests in a given amount of time. As usually, the response indicates how long to wait before making a new request. It can also point to an attempted DDoS attack.

Error 451. Unavailable For Legal Reasons.
Means that access to the resource was closed for legal reasons. This may be the requirement of public authorities or copyright holders in copyright infringement cases.

Error 499. Client Closed Request.
This is a non-standard code for cases where the client closed the connection without waiting for a response to his request.

5** Server error responses (500–599).
These codes are referred to the errors on the server side. They say that the request is correct and meets all the requirements of the server, but at the moment the server cannot process it. Usually, an explanation of the error is displayed with the code.

Error 500. Internal Server Error.
This error displays any internal server error that is outside the class range. The server is unable to determine the issue or has faced an unexpected condition that prevents it from fulfilling the request.

Error 501. Not Implemented.
In comparison with error 405, when a request method is rejected as invalid, error 501 indicates that the server does not recognize the request method and is unable to process it.

Error 502. Bad Gateway Error.
The error indicates an invalid response message from the upstream server when the request goes through a proxy server and one of the servers in the chain is unable to process the request. This is possible for the following reasons:
- server malfunction;
- of communication between the sections of the request;
- firewall blocking the request;
- incorrect server configurations;
- conflict between servers settings.

Error 503. Service Unavailable.
The server is unable to process requests due to temporary overload or serving:
- the server received too many requests at the same time, and has no enough power to process them;
- technical maintenance is undergoing on the server;
- the limit of users connected to the server has been exceeded.
Also, this error may indicate a DDoS attack or server overload due to insufficient server capacity.

Error 504 Gateway Timeout.
Means that the server as a proxy server did not await for a response from the upstream server, to which the request was sent. The reasons can be either a too short timeout in the settings, or an unstable Internet connection between servers, or server overload with requests.

Error 505. Version Not Supported.
This response can be received if the server does not support the HTTP protocol version passed in the request header. The answer usually contains an explanation of the reason.

Error 507. Not Extended.
The server cannot successfully process the request due to insufficient storage. The problem may be temporary.

Error 510. Not Extended.
The server cannot process the request because the requested extension is missing. You can also require the information about the extensions available to the server.

This is such an impressive list. But those are just standard errors! Experimental or draft are not included to the list. Experience has proven that errors 403, 404, 504 are the most common. They are easy to remember. In other cases, you can always turn to the LLHOST INC. blog, which replenishes your "knowledge bank" weekly.

Why does your business need a virtual server?

Every business owner, in order to dominate the market or expand his company, has to optimize it with various IT technologies. So, different online shops, information portals and websites of companies not only host their own website, but also implement various control systems related to the storage and management of information. In this case, virtual servers can assist you. They are an excellent alternative to physical servers, which take up a lot of office space and require a significant investment to organize and maintain.

A virtual server can perform many different tasks, being, in fact, a universal solution for any business. Let's consider the most popular of them.

Corporate websites.
Hosting your corporate website requires significant processing capacity and enhanced security. This is a prerequisite for the web resources that store personal data. Virtual servers have an individual environment with its operating system and software used only by your company.

Online shops.
For a fast and steady running trading platforms, you just need a powerful virtual server. According to the statistics of Data Insight, a research agency specializing in the Internet market, one of the most important factors for online shoppers is the quick download pages and the ability to make a successful purchase.

Media content platforms.
These include photo stocks, video hosting, music services, etc. Such resources must withstand a large server load, not to cause delays when uploading and downloading files. A virtual server will provide maximum speed even during extreme traffic peaks.

Email server.
It's quite impossible to imagine a company that does not use email. It is used both in internal communication and in communication with customers and partners: for promotional mailings, notice updates, etc. A unique domain email address, control and restrictions on accessing the mailbox, creation of new or additional email addresses - these are the main advantages of your own email server.

IP calls.
Virtual Servers LLHOST INC. can be used for VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) calls. They are powerful enough to install all the required software and store all the call recordings. It is a great solution for call centres, customer support or companies whose activities are related to telephone calls.

Virtual work environment.
We've already covered all the advantages of a remote desktop. Virtual work environment is an ideal solution for different departments or employees working on the same project and interacting with each other on an ongoing basis. This will allow access at any time from anywhere, while protecting the company's confidential information.

Automation of business processes.
Most companies have already implemented 1C, CRM, databases, billing systems and others to automate their business processes. That software can be easily setted up and configured on a virtual server with access limitation depending on the employee's activities.

It is recommended to store databases on a separate server. This will prevent the loss of information in case your PC is affected by a malicious virus or an attack on the company's website, because you're the only one who has access to the server.

Your own VPN.
While free VPNs are insecure as well as many paid apps are geo-restricted, it's easy to set up your own VPN on a virtual server to increase your online privacy and security. You can find all the instructions on How to set up your own VPN on LLHOST INC. virtual servers in our blog.

Creative agencies.
Virtual servers allow you to connect an unlimited number of domains and databases. Thanks to this, you will be able to develop and test numerous websites or services, which will run uninterruptedly.

This is why a virtual server is one of the prerequisites for the development and expansion of any company. Enjoy all the features of a physical server like high performance, maximum speed, etc. by using LLHOST INC. virtual servers without substantial investments in infrastructure. Enter the promo code #whyvps when ordering any virtual servers from LLHOST INC. until November 18, 2022, and benefit a -13% discount for 3 months on a monthly billing cycle.


How to choose a VPN?

VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a technology for a secure and private connection to a network that allows access to resources and services with geo-restrictions. There is a great number of VPN services available today, both applications and servers, both paid and free (their comparison can be found here). And if all the providers declare anonymity, then how to choose the best service among similar ones?

Let's start with the main advantages of using a VPN:
• anonymous use of the Internet;
• data encryption during transmission;
• access to resources with geo-restrictions;
• remote access to work/home PC;
• safe connection to the public Wi-Fi hotspots.

What are the criteria for choosing a VPN provider? We have prepared 9 tips for you to help you find the perfect service for you.

1. Choose the possibility of multi-connections.
If you want to use VPN for all the gadgets in your home, or even an entire department at work, it's important to choose a VPN provider that allows you to connect multiple devices at the same time.

2. Check device compatibility.
Some VPN services support certain operating systems. When choosing a provider, it's important to make sure that all platforms you use are supported.

3. Explore possible payment methods.
Being able to pay for the services from any country in the world in any currency, including cryptocurrency, is one of the advantages of LLHOST INC. Earlier we've published a full list of available ways of payment in our blog.

4. Pay attention to the Data Centres' locations.
Using a VPN will always cause slower speeds. It can be a slight slowdown or a sharper one. The farer you are to the Data Centre, the more speed loose will be. So we recommend connecting to VPN servers that are geographically closer to you.

Important! Keep in mind, that the power of your device as well as the speed of your Internet connection also affect the overall download speed.

5. Make sure the provider is reliable.
A free VPN is characterized by traffic restrictions, bandwidth restrictions and, most importantly, a dubious privacy policy. This means that your personal data can be provided to the third parties.

6. Identify geo-blocked content locations.
In order to access geo-restricted resources, it is important not only to connect to a VPN server, but also to make sure that the content is available in the country(s) you connect with. VPN servers from LLHOST INC. have frequently reaffirmed that they can bypass all blocking (for example, Netflix).

7. Check bandwidth limitations.
Bandwidth limits, as well as exceeding the allocated amount of bandwidth, can affect the speed.

8. Query the protocols to be used.
For increased privacy, make sure your provider uses modern VPN protocols such as OpenVPN and WireGuard.

9. Look for a VPN provider with customer support.
All VPN services are constantly working on optimization, so it is very important to be able to contact customer support at any time. The ideal solution is 24/7 technical support.

These simple tips, combined with cybersecurity rules, will help solve the issue of confidentiality and data safety, as well as protect against hacking threats, which is especially important for business security and maintaining brand reputation. Therefore, VPN servers from LLHOST INC. not only provide an additional level of privacy and security, but also guarantee a high-speed connection and access to any content around the world.

Today we have prepared a special offer for all our followers: a -14% discount on VPN servers from LLHOST INC. for 3 months with a monthly billing cycle. Until November 25, 2022, enter the promo code #choosevpn in a special field when you place your order.

Managed vs Unmanaged server. Which one to choose?

Hosting providers offer a wide range of products to meet all the users' needs. There are some basic specifications in order to choose a VPS:
- high uptime,
- technical support available 24/7,
- ability to scale plans,
- additional security services, etc.
You can learn more about this from the post in our blog.

To continue the subject of VPS selection, let's look at what managed, and unmanaged servers are, and what are used for.

Managed hosting ensures that your server is administrated by the provider. In fact, you get additional services to the standard configurations of unmanaged hosting, such as software updates, mailbox, database management, installation of add-ons, which, of course, are reflected in the price of the plan. It can be recommended for users with no technical knowledge on server operation. As usually, the functionality is limited and depends on the service provider.

An unmanaged VPS is completely controlled by the customer. The software and operating system configuration, as well as total control over server configurations and operation, allow you to customize the server environment according to your preferences.

An unmanaged VPS has several advantages over a managed VPS.

The primary benefit of an unmanaged VPS is full control (in terms of bandwidth, memory, software installation and storage usage). Flexibility in settings allows you to install selected applications that best meet your needs or are required for specific tasks. It's easy to create a separate environment within the server or isolate resources for different projects. Finally, unmanaged VPS servers are ideal for businesses with high bandwidth requirements.

What factors should be considered when choosing an unmanaged VPS?

Virtualization. Learn the available features of virtualization software. VPS Netherlands are based on KVM, which has more core settings and more software options available.

Resources. Over time, your project will expand and require additional resources. Ensure you can scale your plan as needed.

OS compatibility. Not all providers offer unmanaged Windows VPS or all Windows OS distributions, and the same can be said about Linux.

OS distributions. If you need a specific OS version, make sure it's on the provider's services list.

Uptime. Make sure your server provider has minimal downtime. VPS Netherlands' uptime rates to date are 99.9%.

Additional services. Some projects may require additional components, such as IP addresses. We recommend choosing a provider that can offer these services.

Technical support. Despite the fact that an unmanaged VPS implies full control over the system, LLHOST INC.'s multi-lingual support is available 24/7 for any queries.

The decision to select a VPS is based on your technical experience, project needs, budget, etc.

We just want to kindly remind you that Black Friday MONTH is in full swing! And VPS Netherlands from LLHOST INC. gets -50% OFF with the promo code #BlackFriday50! Hurry up to apply it before December 25, 2022 and share it with your friends, because the promo code can be applied by an unlimited number of users.

Note! The discount is valid for 3 months of the monthly billing cycle and may not be combined with other special offers.


6 tips to check the server before the Christmas holidays.

Winter holidays always come with long weekends. Someone decides to spend it with family and friends, and someone leaves for a vacation. Anyway, you don't want to get back to work, even for a minute.

We have prepared for you a list of recommendations to check the server before the long vacation, so that you can celebrate without worrying about your projects.

1. Check your balance.
Server invoice is the most important and, at the same time, most often forgotten to pay. Check the time frame of your services. We recommend that you make sure that your balance is not zero. It is even better to pay in advance so that the server is not stopped for non-payment. Also, in the case of a bank payment method, take into consideration some time for the funds to be credited to your account.

Don't forget that you also need to verify payment for additional services, such as domain name, SSL certificate (if used), IP addresses, services provided under a paid subscription. For example, an SSL certificate has to be installed on the server instead of the expired one, even if you have automated payments.

2. Set up tracking.
During the holidays, there is always an increased load on the servers, which can result in their downtime. The risks of other external factors are also not excluded as well. A tracking service will notify you of any issue that occurs. It can be achieved through scripts that send emails or by installing special tracking apps.

3. Keep logins and passwords within your reach.
Ensure that you always have access "keys" with you, at least to the main resources: your email account, personal account and server. They can be saved, for example, in a password manager or notes on a mobile phone. This will save you time and allow you to solve any problem promptly, because it may happen that due to the lack of access to a resource, any minor problem will turn into a global one.

4. Ensure free storage.
Lack of disk space is one of the frequent reasons why your project is unavailable. You can test the upload to the server with special utilities, commands, or tracking services. We recommend that you check these settings:
• cache space that your project requires,
• log files,
• backups that are saved to the same disk,
• at least 40% of space is available.

5. Keep backup copies.
Backup is necessary to form a data archive that is protected from changes and damage, as well as to restore the project in case of damage or failures in the original source. Save all data back up before the holidays using the "3-2-1" rule. It consists of creating 3 copies at a time, 2 of which are stored on physical storage devices and the other in digital format.

6. Improve network security and DDoS protection.
Server security is always our priority, and is particularly relevant during vacations. Almost every Internet project, from business applications to web development and online services, requires increased fault tolerance, performance and data protection. We recommend switching passwords and using servers with anti-DDoS services. VPS Netherlands from LLHOST INC. include DDoS mitigations that scan all incoming traffic and cut suspicious packets in accordance with established rules.

These simple tips will allow you to avoid unnecessary worries on the server during the winter vacation. In addition, you can also get a DDoS-protected virtual server for half the price!

LLHOST INC. is still on Black Friday MONTH! Until December 25, 2022 VPS Netherlands are available with a -50% discount on the website or with the promo code #BlackFriday50. This promotion is valid for 3 months of the monthly billing cycle for an unlimited number of users.

Avatar: The Way of Water. Worldwide release.

Released in 2009, "Avatar" was a huge success and continues to be the highest grossing movie of all time. So 13 years later, since the movie hit the public, we're going back to Pandora. December 16, 2022 is the day when the world will see the next chapter of the story. It is the date of the world premiere of the eagerly awaited sequel "Avatar: The Way of the Water".

The release of the movie was planned for December 2014. However, its launch has been delayed eight times because of multiple pre-production problems, as it was designed to be a visual show with staggering effects and the best 3D technologies. The pre-broadcast took place earlier in London, and almost all participants agreed that director James Cameron is definitely creating different visuals of everything we've seen on the screen before. And "Avatar: The Way of Water" also has a more personal emotional development of the story. 3 hours and 12 minutes of CNA hours seems to make up for the long wait between films.

In an interview, Cameron said, "I felt I had to do the same thing [as Jackson did with The Lord of the Rings]. I had to play this as if the books already existed. So the only way for us to do that was to write all the scripts and let the actors read all the scripts and see where their characters were going and what it all meant".

Long before he began working on the sequel, he spent several years writing "The Avatar Bible", where he described the entire saga: world, mindset and characters. And this time, James Cameron also took on the role of screenwriter with Josh Friedman, author of War of the Worlds, and Terminator: Dark Fate.

An official synopsis says, "Jake Sully is living with his new family on planet Pandora. Once the troubles begin to follow them, he co-operates with Neytiri and the Na'vi army to protect his planet". This only unveils the mystery as well as the trailers.

The production crew specified that the film focuses on Jake, whose human consciousness has been permanently loaded into his Na'vi body. Along with Neytiri and their children, he is forced to leave their home and explore other areas of Pandora, including its oceans, in order to save their family. While "Avatar: The Way of Water" is the sequel to the first film, the team has repeatedly pointed out that this is a full-fledged story.

Looking forward for Cameron to once again makes a 3D revolution in cinemas, we're going to the premiere of "Avatar: The Way of Water" with you.

How to make a server migration?

Data migration is the process of a one-time mass movement of large amounts of data from a source system to a destination system, in which the operation of data in the source system is terminated.

During the migration process, we can't avoid a temporary downtime of both servers. Also, the complexity of the process depends on the type and volume of data being moved. There are steps to help facilitate the process:

1. Determine the type and status of the data, such as format and confidentiality, taking into consideration any changes they may receive during migration.
2. Plan your migration time: since migration involves a downtime period, this can affect the work of all project members.
3. Back up your data in order to have access to all available files and, if required, use them for recovery.
4. Monitor the process, even if everything goes well; there may be some issues after the process is completed.

Depending upon your options, the following migration methods are available:

Migration via Control Panel.
If the source system uses one of the control panels, the migration process will be much simpler. They usually contain back-up and recovery options. For example, during your website migration, you may need to update the configuration to use your VPS' IP address. When the installation is complete, you will need to update your DNS records to point to your VPS.

Migration via a unique or non-use Control Panel.
If the source system (hosting provider) does not use a control panel or uses its own, or you do not want to use a control panel for your VPS, then you'll have to do some extra steps. Using the example of a website migration, once you backup and complete your configurations, you may need to manually install additional software on your new VPS.

Migration carried out by LLHOST INC. technicians.
LLHOST INC. team is ready to help you set up the server, organize and prepare the migration. To do this, select any VPS Netherlands plan and, after server activation, send a migration request through the ticket system. Data transfer is done automatically by fully copying and then deploying the entire file system and its settings (OS and software) on the new platform, excluding temporary files or directories.

To reduce your concern about the migration process even more, LLHOST INC. is coming up with an interesting offer for you: a -35% discount on all VPS Netherlands plans for 3 months of the monthly billing cycle. Hurry up until January 13, 2023 as the offer is only available for one week!


What is the best VPS hosting service?

Virtual servers (VPS) are one of the best business solutions around the world today. It is useful not just for the IT community involved in web development or online shops, but also for enterprises using the services of an email server, IP telephony or CCTV server.

VPS is a must for complex web projects with high traffic, which is supported by a reliable hardware solution.

On a virtual server, you can deploy any version of the system libraries and configure existing ones. Full access to the root directories will enable you to change, add or remove files, change the operating system and make modifications to the software.

When using a VPS server, the dedicated resources are guaranteed: RAM, CPU, storage, which make your server operate fast and independent of other users.

LLHOST INC. team improves its services daily to ensure our users get the best products. We aim to provide the highest level of service by increasing anti-DDoS protection. At the same time, a high level of productivity and maximum uptime are retained.

83% of our customers continued using VPS Netherlands from LLHOST INC. after first month of use.

Why do they choose virtual servers from LLHOST INC.?

The main advantages of VPS Netherlands are:

High security level.
VPS Netherlands includes protection from DDoS attacks (L3-L4), and 24/7 multilingual technical support ready to solve any issues as quickly as possible.

Server's performance and power.
All hardware is based on Dell platforms, latest generation AMD and Intel® Xeon® processors, REG ECC RAM, enterprise-class SSDs. As a result of these technical specifications, there will be sufficient power and memory for all needs. You can distribute resources in different directions, create an email server, cloud storage, install your own software, etc.

Quick installation.
SLA setup is 10 minutes. You can start using VPS immediately, without installing extensions. The virtual server receives all required startup information from the parent host.

Server scalability.
As the amount of data increases and the power needs to be increased, it is possible to scale any VPS Netherlands plan.
You can also perform nested virtualization or request an extra IP address.

Root access.
You manage the server with administrator rights, so that all processes running on the server are under your control. You can modify the settings for your project's needs, install additional software, edit or replace the files in the system.

Dedicated IP address.
It helps to protect from accidental blockades caused by the actions of "neighbors". A dedicated IP address is required when setting up an e-mail service or FTP server for exchanging files, when creating VPN channels.

Price and payment.
All the possible payment methods of LLHOST INC. allow you to make transactions in any currency from anywhere in the world (find the full list in our blog). And competitive prices help our users grow and expand their businesses with no overpayments and/or unexpected bills.

What a Virtual Server is NOT a Solution for?

In our blog, we have talked about all the benefits and advantages of virtual servers (VPS) several times. Whether it's storage of personal data or creating VPN channels, deploying IP telephony, a CCTV or a mail server (see the articles "Why does your business need a virtual server?", "QA environment on a virtual server", "What is the best VPS hosting service?").

Today we are going to discuss on what a virtual server is NOT a solution for.

Thus, cases where VPS will not be helpful to your business:

Storage of bank data or state secrets.
Processing and storing confidential data requires high-level security and control that no virtual server is yet able to provide. The "Concerning Personal Data" law in many countries requires physical data protection and security practices. Often, such organizations use a hybrid infrastructure: some of the data is stored on a virtual server (including the QA environment), and critical information is stored on a physical one.

IT conservatism.
IT-technologies offer ever more advanced methods of processing, monitoring and management. And if it's sometimes difficult if they help or if they just exist in parallel, allowing us to enter their world, pay attention to the world's leading successful brands. There are few who today do not use modern virtualization capabilities, cloud-based solutions or big data.

Older hardware and software.
Is your operating system version pre-2000s, and is your database stored on floppy disks? Based on the above, older versions of software and components block the transition to the VM environment. This means the business must make fundamental changes to its IT infrastructure.

Financial indifference.
You're unlikely to ignore IT service maintenance costs, such as budget for hardware purchase and repair, software upgrades, team of experts. For small and medium-sized enterprises, the cost of physical servers is heavy. Virtual servers help prevent capital investment in hardware. All you have is just small monthly payments for the necessary specifications. The provider takes care of everything else.

No plans to develop the business.
If today you decide to stop there or don't see any development possibilities, tomorrow everything can change in a spectacular way. Increase in customer base or services always requires scaling the IT infrastructure. And migrating to a virtual server will prepare your company for fast growth as much as possible.

For all other solutions, there are VPS Netherlands from LLHOST INC. They are a perfect solution for both small businesses and start-ups, and leading holdings. They allow you to fully control your resources with no restrictions or influence from "neighbors". Top Tier data centres are served 24/7 to avoid unnecessary downtimes, multilingual technical support is provided 24/7, and enterprise-class SSDs help improve speed and reliability.

For those who have not yet joined the LLHOST INC. family we have prepared a -20% discount on all VPS Netherlands for 3 months of the monthly billing cycle. *

Pick the plan that works for you, paying only for the resources you need!

* The discount is valid until February 3, 2023 for an unlimited number of users and cannot be combined with other special offers.


TV Show The Last of Us. Premiere Weeks Review.

WARNING! This text may be followed by spoilers!

The first video-game "The Last of Us" from Naughty Dog's developers, was released back in 2013 exclusively for PlayStation consoles. This story of the post-apocalyptic world has struck a chord with so many users, that it has been constantly updated with various DLCs and remastered versions of the video-game, as well as four comic books as a spin-off.

Thus, nearly 10 years later, HBO presented the eponymous TV show to fans of "The Last of Us". It debuted on January 15, 2023, and is already determined #1 on IMDb's "Most Watched TV Shows" with a 9.3 user rating.

We went through the reviews of the first two series on the network. The opinion of the critics is unanimous: "The Last of Us" is better than the cult "The Walking Dead".

"Empire", a British film magazine, named "TLoU" the best adaptation of the video-game: "Comfortably the best adaptation of a video-game ever made: one that deepens the video-game's dystopian lore, while staying true to its emotional core. Like the video-game, it's a masterpiece, too."

Indeed, the TV adaptation follows the video-game's original storyline, keeping all the most thrilling moments.

"NME", one of Time Warner's largest magazines, noted that the authors revealed the missed moments of the video-game: "Mazin and Druckmann have opted to expand their world rather than remake it – filling in the gaps that were previously left blank."

Thus, the series "The Last of Us" not only adds details to the video-game, but also acts as an entry point for those not familiar with the story. The action takes place in the United States after a global epidemic caused by a mutated Cordyceps fungus. The cities were destroyed alongside the population. The survivors, a smuggler Joel and a teenage Ellie, cross the ruins to get out of the quarantine zone.

No doubt, the imitated key scenes from the video-game are delightful, but the "terrifying" details deserve special attention: the appearances of the infected, their fuzzy tendrils crawl out of their mouths like nested xenomorphs, mushroomed scalps... Even the old paint scabbing over walls and fungal veins crawling across floors was taken into account and imitated in the series.

No negative reviews were found for "The Last of Us'' as of this writing. It was also highly rated by LLHOST INC.'s team. We are also interested in your opinion. So we prepared two promo codes at the same time: HBOTLOU-LIKE for those who liked the series, and HBOTLOU-DISLIKE for those who think the video-game would be sufficient. Apply them when ordering VPS Netherlands from LLHOST INC. and benefit from a -25% discount during 3 months of the monthly billing cycle.*

Let's see how you cast a vote  ;)

*The discount is valid until February 10, 2023 and cannot be combined with other special offers.

Why are server logs necessary?

Server logs are records of what is happening on a server. They contain information about all events occurring on the server, including user requests, server errors, security events, performance and configuration information, and more. These logs serve many different purposes, and in this article, we will explore how they can be used and how they can help us.

Logs (log files) are files containing system information about the operation of a server or computer, in which information about a request is recorded, including the user's IP address, time of the request, requested resource, and response code.

Server log files are necessary for the following purposes:

Diagnosing and resolving problems.
Server logs are an important tool for diagnosing and resolving problems that arise on a server. They can help identify the cause of the problem by providing information about the operations performed at the time of the error, what data was processed, and when it occurred.

Performance monitoring.
Server logs can be used to monitor server performance, such as response time, server load, and memory usage. If any applications are using too many resources, analysing server logs can help identify bottlenecks and optimize server performance.

Security assurance.
Server logs can be used to detect potential security threats, such as hacking attempts, brute force attacks, and unauthorized access attempts. By analysing server logs, security threats can be detected and prevented.

User behaviour analysis.
Server logs can help understand how users interact with applications on the server and which features they use most often. This information can be used to improve the user experience and optimize applications.

Compliance with security requirements.
Server logs can be used to comply with security and regulatory requirements such as HIPAA, PCI DSS, and GDPR. Storing server logs allows organizations to demonstrate compliance and provide evidence in case of an audit.

Trend analysis.
Server logs can be used to assess changes in server load over the course of a day, week, or month. This information can help plan server rental expenses and optimize its operation.

Server logs analysis provides many advantages. They help detect malware, various errors, improve server security, and even analyze all server traffic. Depending on the operating system, server logs can be found in various directories, often in the corresponding /logs directory.

LLHOST INC. offers virtual servers that provide a high degree of security and performance. Powerful monitoring systems allow you to access server logs in real-time. Additionally, until March 3, 2023, VPS Netherlands from LLHOST INC. are available with a special -15% discount on any plan.*

10 Advantages of KVM Virtualization You Need to Know.

Today, no hosting service provider can do without virtualization. Indeed, in recent years, this technology has expanded its boundaries beyond the IT sphere, as it can significantly increase the efficiency of equipment use, reduce maintenance costs and improve overall system flexibility.

In this article, we will consider the main aspects of servers on KVM virtualization, its advantages and applications in the modern world. We will also talk about the technologies used to manage resources and ensure system security.

Among the most popular hardware virtualization technologies for VPS are KVM, VMware, Hyper-V, Xen, and others. All of these hypervisors allow multiple virtual machines to run on a physical server, using the hardware capabilities of the processor to efficiently divide resources between virtual machines.

Each of them has its pros and cons, but KVM is considered one of the most effective and flexible options. For example, the Hyper-V hypervisor, developed by Microsoft, was created to run Windows OS VPS, while KVM supports a wide range of guest operating systems, including Windows, Linux, Solaris, and others, making it more flexible and universal.

KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) virtualization is a Linux kernel-level virtualization technology that allows you to create virtual machines based on the resources of a physical server.

KVM virtualization servers are suitable for a wide range of users, from individual users to large enterprises looking for the perfect virtual server deployment solution. This technology can provide high performance and security. Such servers can be used for various commercial and open source projects, running various applications such as web servers, databases, and many others.

What are the advantages of KVM based servers over servers based on other hypervisors? Among them there are:

1. Security.
As already mentioned, by using a separate kernel for each virtual machine, KVM provides complete isolation between them, preventing the spread of malware and data leakage.

2. Performance.
KVM operates directly with hardware, providing high performance for tasks running on virtual machines, making it ideal for high performance applications.

3. Flexibility.
KVM supports most operating systems and can run on different hardware platforms, allowing it to be used for different tasks. The ability to create multiprocessor systems allows more efficient use of processor power and improves performance.

4. Scalability.
KVM allows to easily scale virtual machines based on user needs, as well as create and maintain numerous virtual machines on a single host with different specifications (CPU, RAM and Storage), making it an attractive choice for enterprises and large companies.

5. Community and support.
With a large community of developers and users, KVM provides extensive documentation, support and development of this technology.

6. Integration with other technologies.
KVM can be integrated with other technologies, such as OpenStack, allowing it to be used in various virtualization scenarios. And thanks to integration with backup and recovery mechanisms, KVM is highly reliable.

7. Various encryption methods.
KVM can use various encryption methods to provide an additional level of security.

8. Quick virtual machine creation.
KVM allows you to quickly create and delete virtual machines, making it convenient for testing and development.

9. Storage types.
KVM allows for the use of various storage types, including local disks, network storage, and SAN and NAS-based storage.

10. LIVE MIGRATION support.
KVM allows migration of virtual machines from physical servers without downtime, which provides higher availability and ease of management.

Predicting your questions about other hypervisors, the answer is: the choice of virtualization depends on specific needs and tasks. If you need high performance and flexibility, security and scalability, as well as availability and low cost, KVM based VPS Netherlands from LLHOST INC. is the ideal choice.

In addition, now you can take advantage of a -15% discount for 3 months of the monthly billing cycle. Enter promo code KVMVPS15 in a special field when choosing any VPS Netherlands plan.

A day in history: the advent of the WWW.

Today, the internet has become an essential part of our lives, facilitating communication with friends and family, information searching, shopping, education, entertainment, and of course, business. Thanks to the internet, companies can find customers from anywhere in the world, providing small businesses with the same opportunities as large corporations in the market.

Let's go back to the beginning of March 1989. 34 years ago, English scientist Tim Berners-Lee and his colleagues from the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, presented a global hypertext project called the World Wide Web (WWW). To implement it, Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs), the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), and the HyperText Markup Language (HTML) were invented, which became the foundation of WWW. Later, the technical specifications of these standards were improved and presented to users. Nevertheless, 1989 is still officially recognized as the birth year of the World Wide Web.

Initially, the World Wide Web served as a communication tool between CERN employees. In the 1990s, the internet became available to a wider audience through the first browsers: Mosaic, Netscape, and Internet Explorer. However, most users primarily used it for email exchange and communication on forums, since the internet library at that time could not boast modern volumes of information.

The development of internet technologies in recent decades has given us social networks, messengers, audio and video platforms, streaming services, AI technologies, and we can hardly imagine our lives without them. Like any technology, the World Wide Web will continue to evolve and change in the future.

The factors that will determine internet trends are:

‣ Growth in devices with the internet connection: it creates new opportunities for communication and interaction with other people and technologies.

‣ Artificial intelligence and augmented reality: already widely used in various fields and will be directed towards improving the user experience on the internet.

‣ Improvement in internet speed and availability: for example, 5G internet guarantees higher data transfer speeds and lower latency, allowing for full use of virtual reality and autonomous vehicles.

‣ Development of "smart" devices (IoT): in the future, IoT devices will be connected in a global network to create smarter and more efficient systems.

‣ Cybersecurity: with the growth in the number of devices connected to the internet, cybersecurity becomes increasingly important and leads to the development of new technologies and methods for protecting information from cyber attacks.

‣ Data privacy: technologies for protecting user privacy and legislative control over the collection and use of personal data will be strengthened.

For LLHOST INC., it is important to stay up to date with the latest technological trends and provide the highest level of security for our users. We are proud to use modern equipment and constantly improve our technologies to guarantee high-quality service. We also remind you that the spring discount of -40% on any VPS Netherlands plan, is still valid until March 31, 2023.*

Take care of your privacy and security today with LLHOST INC.!

DOS attack and DDoS attack: are they the same thing?

Attacks on computer systems and networks have become a common occurrence in the modern world. According to Infosecurity Magazine, a journal on information security, the number of DDoS attacks in 2022 increased by 74% annually. The most vulnerable sectors were: fintech industry (34%), telecommunications (26%), and e-commerce (17%). Microsoft recorded an average of 1435 attacks per day, with the highest number of attacks in a single day being recorded on September 22, 2022, with 2215 attacks.

The two most common types of attacks are DoS and DDoS, aimed at overloading a system and causing it to fail. Let's understand the essence of these concepts and what security measures can be taken.

DoS (Denial of Service) attack is a type of attack on a computer system in which an attacker tries to disrupt the service of the system or service. Various techniques are used, such as sending a large number of requests or data packets to the system, overloading its resources, and exploiting vulnerabilities in software. DoS attacks can be launched from one computer or several located in the same network.

DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack is a more complex and common type of attack that uses so-called botnets - a group of computers or devices infected with malicious software to simultaneously launch an attack on the target system or service. The ability to distribute the load across multiple computers makes DDoS attacks more effective and difficult to detect and stop, and devices can be used without the knowledge of their owners.

Thus, the main difference between DOS and DDoS attacks is that a DOS attack is launched from a single computer or a few computers within the same network, while a DDoS attack uses a group of computers located in different places.

DDoS attacks can be classified as L3-L4 (network and transport layers) and L7 (application layer). L3 and L4 DDoS attacks are aimed at overloading network resources such as network bandwidth, routers, switches, and other network devices, as well as fraudulent purposes such as extortion.

VPS Netherlands from LLHOST INC. include L3-L4 DDoS attack protection systems that operate at the network protocol level. These systems are capable of processing a large volume of traffic and quickly responding to attacks to prevent service disruptions. To do this, they use traffic filtering methods such as connection throttling or blocking certain IP addresses to prevent network overload.

To protect from DDoS attacks directed against VPS Netherlands, LLHOST INC. employs the following methods:

1. Using specialized software to detect and block attacks.
2. Regularly updating the software used on network devices and servers.
3. Increasing network bandwidth to provide greater resilience to DDoS attacks.
4. Using cloud resources to distribute the load and ensure high service availability.

Until March 31, 2023, you can get any of VPS Netherlands plans for 6 months with a -40% discount when choosing monthly billing cycle.
