Guaranteed Ram

Our SSD VPS servers include massive amounts of RAM. This is not “burstable” RAM, the amount listed is available to you at all times with VSwap on top.

What operating system are the Critihost SSD VPS servers running?
Our SSD VPS nodes are based on the lastest CentOS 6. Currently CentOS 6.6.
What virtualization system is being used?
Our current offering is OpenVZ. If you have a specific need for another system or a question about whether that will fit your need please contact sales.
What does 100% SSD mean?
100% means 100%. Our SSD VPS servers only use any other disk type for backup. All operating system and client files are stored on pure SSD storage with RAID.
How do you offer so much RAM?
The price of RAM has come down drastically. We want to provide a VPS offering that is free from major bottlenecks so we don't put too many clients on one node which means less disk issues and even faster SSD performance.
Are the virtual servers really installed instantly?
Generally, as long as payment is received without any complication it takes under 5 minutes. If it is taking longer than you think is normal or there's an issue please log into the Client Center and open a ticket.
Do you backup your servers?
Yes, every SSD VPS is backed up daily. It is still important to keep your own backup as we are not responsible for your data.
What actions can I perform myself via the Client Center?
Most often, any major server administration task is available in the client center:
  • Reboot, boot, shutdown, rebuild, delete server
  • Access console if you are locked out of SSH
  • Change host name
  • view IP address(es)
  • Monitor bandwidth, memory and disk usage
  • Enable or disable TUN/TAP
  • Add licenses
  • Enter the SolusVM control panel to initiate backup
Additional Features:
Purchase other services, request help, order domains, add additional authorized users, enable 2-factor authentication, pay bills or update billing options.
I need x number of IP addresses, how do I order those?
Because of the global IPv4 shortage we must manually approve and assign all additional IP addresses beyond the 1 that comes standard with your account. To request additional IP addresses you must log into the Client Center and open a support request, proper justification will be required. Additional IPs will be billed at $2 /month.
How long will it take to get a new IP?
Most IPs are able to be assigned within 12 hours, some can take 48.
