Hosting Plan Features Comparison

Our new Solo, Growth, Pro, and Reseller hosting plans are now available to provide our clients with all the great hosting plan features of PWH and much more! 

Active Premium Web Hosting (PWH) plans will stay in place for clients who are still using them, but they’re no longer for sale on our website.

This article is for you if you’ve been thinking about switching hosting plans from your PWH plan to a new one.

Exclusive New Hosting Plan Features: 

The following hosting plan features apply exclusively to our new plans. To see a list of features common to PWH and the new plans, click here or read through the section below.

Ultrafast and Redundant VMware vSAN Storage

Our compute infrastructure is powered by VMware.

We’ve upgraded the storage infrastructure to VMware vSAN, a software-defined distributed storage platform. On the new plans, all client data is hosted across multiple physical servers while also stored locally to the compute infrastructure that serves the sites.

Distributed storage platforms are beneficial because the storage is redundant. As a result, in the event of a server failure, all data remains accessible and can be read locally. vSAN combines the redundancy of traditional SAN with fast local storage performance.

To further optimize performance, we’ve configured the underlying hardware of our vSAN storage arrays with SSD drives. Our SSD drives are backed by an even faster NVMe-accelerated caching layer. 

Node.js Support Added

Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform, JavaScript runtime environment that executes JavaScript outside of the web browser.

Our new plans fully support Node.js, with the latest LTS version. We’re also supporting legacy Node.js versions, including 12.18 and 11.15.

It’s easy to set up Node.js web applications through the Setup Node.js tool in your Rochen cPanel.

Dual-Stack IPv4 and IPv6 Routing

We are a member of the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) in North America, and the RIPE Network Coordination Centre in Europe.

We have direct IPv6 address allocations through both organizations.

Sites on our new plans are routed and reachable using both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

Web Host Manager (WHM)

The Growth, Pro, and Reseller plans include Web Host Manager (WHM.) With WHM, you can create your own hosting packages to distribute your resources.

When you add new domains to your hosting, you assign packages to them with default storage and LVE limits.

You can also manage packages and domains via your My Rochen customer account, in addition to using WHM.

Dedicated IP Addresses

The Pro and Reseller plans include one dedicated IPv4 address each, so sites hosted on them will not share an IP address with other Rochen customers.

Email messages sent by customers on the Pro and Reseller plans are sent from their dedicated IP address, so they are less likely to be flagged by spam filters than those sent from shared IPs.

As noted above, all of the new plans receive dedicated IPv6 addresses.

Pooled Systems Resources

Our new plans use Linux Virtual Environments (LVEs), a kernel-level technology developed by CloudLinux, to ensure that each account has a generous pool of resources. 

People who host more than one site can use their systems resources as needed or set limits for each site. Limits ensure that one site can’t use the entire pool and impact the performance of the other sites. LVE limits are particularly beneficial for hosting resellers.

We segregate accounts on the server for added performance so that each has its own share of resources to use. Segregation ensures that clients cannot negatively impact one another’s resource availability. 

Generous Inodes Allocations

Each file in an account (e.g. an image, JavaScript file, or email message) consumes one inode. One inode = one file.

Most big-brand hosting providers are restrictive about inodes. Rochen is different.

With our Solo plan, we provide 150,000 inodes per site, and with our Growth, Pro, and Reseller plans we provide 300,000 inodes per site.

Again, that’s per site and not per plan. As an example, if you are hosting five sites under the Growth plan, each will be allocated 300,000 inodes for a total of 1,500,000 inodes. 

Exclusive PWH Hosting Plan Features: 

These hosting plan features apply exclusively to our older Premium Web Hosting (PWH) tier. To view a list of features common to both PWH and the new plans, click here or read through to the section below.

Scaling/Adding Storage

PWH owners can scale storage beyond the default limit. Scaled storage is provided in increments of 1GB, and it is billed in addition to regular renewal fees.

More information about how to scale PWH storage can be found here

Site Booster add-on Option

PWH owners can add the Site Booster add-on to their sites. Site Booster is an optional add-on that provides extra LVE resources (RAM, vCPU) to websites that need it. 

(Clients on our newer plans have higher default LVE limits, and more robust overall plan upgrade options, eliminating the need for the Site Booster add-on.)
