Frequently asked questions

Questions about Cloud Servers? Our FAQs provide answers to the most common queries. You can also contact our expert support team at any time.

What is a cloud server?

A cloud server is flexible virtual machine within a hosted environment of shared resources. Cloud Servers offer flexibility, scalability and features that ensure that your project is not limited in terms of growth potential or additional functionality.

What is a virtual machine?

A virtual machine is an operating system and associated compute resources which are provisioned by a hypervisor, as opposed to being provisioned directly on fixed server hardware.

Why would I use shared storage?

For maintaining performance of busy websites and applications, it’s often best to use multiple, load-balanced servers as web servers. To keep website management simple across multiple web servers, it can be advantageous to keep all web server content in one place, meaning updates are always consistent.

Can my server be paused?

Yes, a cloud server can be paused and restarted as often as desired. If you select a flexible plan, you will only pay for the storage resources you have allocated to your paused server.

What technology is CloudNX built on?

Fasthosts uses leading technology: VMware vSphere virtualisation, HP servers, SolidFire cabinets and F5 Networks load balancing systems, as well as a fully responsive Cloud Panel designed and built in-house. You only deal with one supplier for all your cloud data centre requirements, and get access to a powerful, intuitive CloudNX Panel.

The CloudNX platform has been designed and engineered with proven VMware technology leading to best-in-class orchestration capability.

Do you have a default firewall enabled?

Yes, selected ports are open by default. Which ones depends on if it’s a Linux or Windows server. You can add rules or change these easily in the CloudNX panel.

How does my bill get calculated?

Your bill is calculated by counting every minute of active resources. CPU, RAM and licences are not chargeable when a virtual machine is switched off. Storage and IPs are charged unless they are deleted, whether on or off. All prices are ‘per month’ which means that months with a differing numbers of days are the same price. For this reason ‘per-hour’ prices vary slightly between months of different lengths.

Can I view my charges before the end of the month?

Yes, you can view charges incurred up to midnight of the previous day at any time. You can also view an estimate of the bill at the end of the month which assumes you do not make any more changes in the current month.
