The Szaro Consulting Virtual & Dedicated Server Systems

If you plan to grow your web business, the Szaro Consulting Virtual and Dedicated Server System is for you. Your Szaro Consulting virtual server will allow you to establish an Internet presence on multiple high speed OC48 SONET Ring connections at a fraction of the cost of a dedicated server (which Szaro Consulting also offers). Normally, to establish a presence on the Internet, it would require you to purchase a high speed Internet connection, costly equipment, and a fulltime support staff. With the Virtual Server System, you get the Internet services you need without the worries and costs of a dedicated Internet connection (and your employees will not be able to tell the difference).

The Szaro Consulting hosting solution allows you to start small and scale upward to whatever server and bandwidth combination fits your needs. And, Szaro Consulting’s Tech Support will be with you every step of the way, assisting you and underwriting your success. Our customers range from small businesses to large corporate clients. Szaro Consulting’s server architecture is the most robust and flexible in the industry and is specifically designed to grow with you. Customers use their virtual server solutions for e-commerce, on-line auctions, chat forums, virtual postcards, polls and surveys, live audio and video, secure conferencing, market research, banner advertisements, shopping carts, email (virtual post offices), classified ads, databases, search engines, on-line stores and malls and much more. You simply cannot do all this at your complete discretion with the typical hosting solution because you do not have “root access” to your own server. With Szaro Consulting, you do!

How It Functions
Find out more about Szaro Consulting’s unique way of providing an affordable Internet presence and why Szaro Consulting’s Virtual Server System is superior to the typical Virtual Hosting system. It is the top hosting solution in the industry. The core services of Szaro Consulting’s Virtual Server System- WWW, FTP, CGI, Email, and POP are all completely configurable under the Linux OS and Apache. For example, your virtual server includes an entire httpd directory tree to include your own cgi-bin, configuration files (httpd.conf, et al), and log files (access, error, and referer logs). Thus you can customize and configure your virtual server’s WWW service to meet your specific needs (and meet them immediately) since you have complete control of your virtual server.

Virtual Servers vs. Virtual Hosting
Essentially, there are two types of web presence solutions available – Virtual Hosting and Virtual Servers. Although the solutions seem similar, the underlying functionality of the two is very different. Your website is very likely an integral part of your business, therefore understanding the differences between Virtual Hosting and Virtual Servers can have a significant impact on your web presence decision and success. With a Virtual Hosting solution, both the hardware and software are selected and configured by the site administrators. Thus, the client is left with little to no control over how his or her Internet Services perform. This kind of inflexible solution simply shares a single set of software applications on the physical server. The client has no choice but to use only the software resources controlled and maintained by someone else! In this scenario, you can only hope that the site administrators are headed in the same direction as you with the same applications in mind and the same business model.

So Why a Virtual Server?
With a true Virtual Server solution, only the OS and hardware are controlled by the site administrators. The software (i.e.. the web, ftp, pop services, and more, as well as the smtp gateway) is completely autonomous and provides the client complete flexibility, control, and power over how his or her Internet services function. How? The root physical server is multiplexed or partitioned into many Virtual Servers. Each Virtual Server can be completely configured and customized at the discretion of the client. This solution is far superior to the simple Virtual Hosting solution most providers offer on the Internet today. To use a metaphor, why rent a prefab house if, for the same price or less, you can get a contractor to custom build you a house on your land with an option to add rooms and features at no cost for the life of your mortgage? By choosing Szaro Consulting you choose control, you choose flexibility, and you choose scalability because all of Szaro Consulting’s hosting solutions use this technology. For example, unlike most providers who will charge you for additional POP email accounts as your business grows, because they only offer a Web Hosting solution, Szaro Consulting does not limit you or bill you extra because with a Virtual Server, all the POP email accounts belong to you and are part of your Virtual Server. Your growth potential is unlimited! As your business grows, your Virtual Server can grow with you, into one or even many dedicated servers, seamlessly. Why start with anything less than Szaro Consulting’s top notch hosting solution? Don’t let a misinformed technical decision now, limit your success in the future.

A Quick Comparison
Is your web site currently being Virtually Hosted? Chances are yes. Almost all Internet Presence Providers only provide simple Virtual Hosting solutions for their clients. As you review the points below, compare the capabilities of your current web site to a few of the standard Szaro Consulting Virtual Server features. This list does not include many of the features Szaro Consulting offers Free. If you find that your current hosting solution has any “NO’s” with regard to the features below, you are using a solution inferior to what you would enjoy as an Szaro Consulting client. When you are comparing, ask the other providers whether or not they provide the following:

Complete server control ?
Unique (your) Web Server (HTTP) ?
Unique (your) FTP Server ?
Unique/Unlimited # POP email Server ?
Unique (your) SMTP Gateway ?
Virtual (you customize ) Root access ?

Seamless Dedicated Server upgrade ?

Technical Advantages of Virtual Servers
Szaro Consulting’s unique Virtual Server is achieved by multiplexing a single dedicated server into a system of multiple virtual machines. Each virtual machine, or Virtual Server, is given its own IP address, domain name, web server with complete logs and configuration files, ftp server, pop server, and smtp gateway. In addition to increased performance and flexibility, Szaro Consulting Virtual Servers also offer “Virtual Hosting” capabilities. In other words, Virtual Hosting is just one more feature of Szaro Consulting’s Virtual Servers. Szaro Consulting Virtual Servers allow you to create virtual domain web hosts under you, virtual e-mail, virtual ftp logins, etc. In essence, you can become a virtual hosting company without the costs. Most providers only offer virtual hosting, which is simply a single feature of our Virtual Servers. A real Virtual Server is not simply a virtually hosted (Virtual Host) site on a web server we control, rather we give you “virtual root” access. When using your Virtual Server, you will see directories such as “dev”, “usr”, “bin”, “etc”. In your “etc” directory you will find your own “passwd”, “aliases”, and “sendmail.cf” file which allows you unlimited flexibility to add as many POP accounts, aliases, and autoresponders as you need. With Szaro Consulting Virtual Servers, you will also find an entire “usr/local/etc/httpd” directory structure, including your own httpd.conf, srm.conf, and access.conf files, your own logs, and cgi-bin. Essentially, an Szaro Consulting Virtual Server acts and behaves like a dedicated server. You have complete control of your web, ftp, and e-mail services. The basic differences between an Szaro Consulting dedicated server and an Szaro Consulting Virtual Server is the disk space and the price. When you and your business are ready to upgrade, we will assist you.

What it Costs & Getting Started

Szaro Consulting also provides you with plenty of disk space and data transfer so you can grow your web presence without being penalized for your success. Keep in mind that with most other hosting companies, you do not have your own virtual server, only a virtual host. Finally, you have absolute freedom to cancel at any time. Reseller accounts are billed monthly and user accounts are billed monthly or quarterly.
