UNIX FreeBSD VPS Hosting

FreeBSD VPS Gives You an IPv6 Enabled Virtual Server Environment


Verio's Ipv6 Enabled FreeBSD VPS (Virtual Private Servers) deliver the security and performance of a dedicated server, but at a much more affordable price. We use a proprietary tool to give each FreeBSD VPS its own file system, processes, users, applications and resource allocations, plus virtual root access.* Plus Verio's hosting experts handle the day-to-day system administration like OS updates, server software patches and upgrades, security tasks and backups.

IPv6-enabled FreeBSD VPS hosting accounts are available in our San Jose, California and Sterling, Virginia data centers. We utilize a dual-stack architecture enabling you to support both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses and services simultaneously. Learn more about IPv6 Hosting technology or get a FreeBSD Dedicated Hosting.

Disk Space More Info
Disk space is the amount of storage space a hosting company offers you for your web content – documents, graphics, emails, databases, etc. that is then is saved to a hard disk on a server. Available space is usually listed in megabytes (MB, millions of bytes). For perspective, a single letter of text takes up one byte.
10 GB 20 GB 40 GB 60 GB
Monthly Transfer
This is the amount of data that passes between the server where your website is hosted and your visitors.

How much Transfer do you need? Estimate your average page size w/ graphics MULTIPLIED BY # page views / month.

Example: average page size of 50 KB X 2000 page views per day = 3 GB per month. 1,000 GB = 1 TB

Memory / RAM More Info
Memory / RAM (Random Access Memory) – Memory is the web server's ability to hold data and support the access of this data by users. It's where the system stores applications and data that is being used. Memory is measured in Megabytes (MB) and Gigabytes (GB). The higher the memory resources, the more programs and applications you can run at the same time, and the more visitors to your website you can sustain.

Dedicated IPv4 Addresses Included More Info
A static or dedicated IP address is a specific, unchanging number sequence that is used every time to refer to your website on the Internet. Many hosting providers use a shared IP address or dynamic IP for all the websites on a server. This means that a different IP is assigned each time your website connects to the Internet, and this IP is shared by other sites on the server. If any of those other sites are banned by the search engines or spam lists, your site will be affected and lumped in as one of the offenders.

Shopping Cart FAQs »

How do I get started?
First think about what are you selling and how many products you will have. This will help you select a ShopSite package. Then think about features you want to offer to customers. The Starter ShopSite package will have basic features. More features and functionality are included in the Manager, and still more are included with the Pro package. You can set up the store yourself using ShopSite's set up wizard, or have someone design your shopping cart for you.

There are four basic steps to selling your product online with a ShopSite shopping cart. 1) Open a Local Checking Account with a banking institution so you can receive deposits. 2) Open a merchant account so that you will be able to accept credit cards. 3) Open a Payment Gateway account so you can connect between the Internet (your website) and secure banking and credit card networks to process your payment. 4) Configure your ShopSite store to work with your merchant account and payment gateway.

What is a merchant account?
A merchant account is a bank account that is designed to process debit and credit card payments, then deposit those funds into your local checking account (for a fee). A merchant account can be established for an online business, a brick and mortar business or both. If you already have a merchant account, contact your bank to make sure you can accept online payments via your website with your account type.

Do I need a merchant account?
Yes. You will need to have a merchant account to accept payments via your website. You will also need a payment gateway to transfer information securely from your website to your banking institution. Verio does not offer merchant accounts or payment gateways.

What is a payment gateway?
A payment gateway is a service that provides a connection between the Internet (your website) and secure banking and credit card networks where your merchant account resides.

What if I already have a PayPal or other merchant account?
You can link directly over to your PayPal account to process a sale directly from the ShopSite shopping cart.

How can I become PCI Compliant?
PCI Compliance can be a troublesome task for the average company. Verio offers scan-ready hosting platforms and compliant payment gateway solutions from AuthorizeNet or Braintree that may help your business with the steps needed to meet compliancy regulations.

Do I need to pay for an SSL account?
No. We provide a shared SSL for all of our hosting plans that you can use at no extra charge. If you prefer to have a private SSL certificate, you can purchase one from a third party vendor for an additional fee. We recommend you purchase an SSL certificate from Global Sign or GeoTrust. Note: You will need a dedicated IP address for a private SSL certificate. We include a dedicated IP address with each Verio hosting account at no additional charge.

Can I have multiple shopping carts?
If you select a Linux VPS or Linux MPS plan you can add multiple websites and IP addresses, and therefore have multiple shopping carts.

Can my shopping cart pages be found by the search engines?
Yes. ShopSite pages are static which is better for Search Engine Optimization. When content is dynamically generated it can't be indexed by the search engines. Static content is always there and easily findable.

Will my shopping cart look like the rest of my site?
Yes. You can either use the shopping cart itself to promote your products and information, or create a website for your information and simply link to the shopping cart for “buy now” functionality when your visitor is ready to purchase. Either way you can add graphics to your shopping cart so that it matches your branding (your website's look and feel).

How do I choose a hosting plan?
It's important to choose the right hosting plan that will accommodate the growth of your online business. Consider how many visitors you will have, how many pages your website will be and how much you are predicting your online business to grow in the next year to two years. Consider choosing a hosting plan level that offers more resources than you need today. Then you will less likely need to migrate or change plans as your business evolves.

What is a Virtual Private Server?
With a Virtual Private Server each customer receives a partition of the server instead of sharing the file system, processes, users, applications and resource allocations with everyone else. Customers can manage their website with tools and perform some minor configuration changes to support applications, data and users. Virtual Providers provider more security than shared hosting and the private resources also help boost performance.

What is Disk Space?
Disk space is the amount of storage space a hosting company offers you for your web pages and hosting account. This space may be used to upload the content of your site. This content – documents, graphics, emails, databases, etc. is saved to a hard disk. Available space is usually listed in megabytes (MB, millions of bytes). For perspective, a single letter of text takes up one byte. HTML files are usually rather small, but pictures and programs can be quite large. Your scripts, emails and statistics will also take up disk space.

I don't have any experience creating a website. Can you help me?
You don't need experience to create a great website if you use EasySite, our free design tool. You can choose from 100's of templates, add your logo, choose your color scheme and add your content using an interface that functions much like Microsoft® Word. If you prefer to have someone else do the work, our Professional Services team can provide you with a professional website.

What is data transfer or monthly transfer?
Data transfer is the amount of data you are allowed to transfer to or from a website. Data, in this case, must be transferred from the web server to the user's web browser and is usually provided in increments of gigabytes (GB) – that's billions of bytes – and allotted monthly, meaning you can transfer a certain amount of data every month. Data refers to text, images, audio and video files that require various amounts of data to transfer.

Memory / RAM (Random Access Memory)
Memory is the web server's ability to hold data and support the access of this data by users. It's where the system stores applications and data that is being used. Memory is measured in Megabytes (MB) and Gigabytes (GB). The higher the memory resources, the more programs and applications you can run at the same time, and the more visitors to your website you can sustain. The amount of RAM available to your website can often be increased on virtual or dedicated servers.

How do I add ecommerce?
You can add a ShopSite shopping cart to just about any Verio hosting plan or server. ShopSite can be added to both Unix and Windows operating system-based plans. This can be done by selecting the “Add ShopSite” option as part of the check out process. If you want to save a step in the ordering process, we also offer Ecommerce bundles that are based on Unix (only) and include both a basic web hosting account and a choice of three different levels of ShopSite shopping cart. You can also select a Windows Virtual Server or Dedicated Windows Hosting plan that both include ShopSite Starter, or you can upgrade to ShopSite Manager or Pro.

What level of shopping cart software do I need?
Choose a Starter ShopSite shopping cart if you will have less than 5 product pages. If you want to offer digital downloads, choose Manager. If you want to offer gift certificates, digital coupons, digital downloads or customer rewards then choose the Pro level. View a full comparison of features

* VPS does not include access to operating system, kernel, or physical hardware or the ability to update/modify OS and hardware configuration files.
