Web Hosting NewsCLIFTON, N.J. – HostNexus, Inc., a leading web hosting provider, today announced two new web hosting products designed to continue the company’s mission of providing tailored yet low cost web hosting solutions for today’s most demanding users.

Virtual Private Server (VPS) is the perfect web hosting option for young companies who want the control and power of a dedicated server at a lower cost. VPS plans can rapidly scale and are great for “Web 2.0” style applications such as those written in Ajax and Ruby on Rails.

[swfobj src=”” width=”300/250″ class=”border: 1px solid grey;” align=”right”] HostNexus provides VPS web hosting services based on ParallelsR Virtuozzo Containers 4.0, the world’s leading server virtualization solution.

“Host Nexus’ new VPS web hosting plans are a great intermediate step between a shared web site hosting plan and a dedicated web site hosting server,” said Andrei Zimiles, president of Habitastic, Inc. and a long-time HostNexus customer. “VPS gives us the benefits of a dedicated web hosting server, including command line root access, without the cost and administrative complexity of a full-blown dedicated server solution.”

“VPS is ideal for clients that want to expand beyond the limitations of cheap web hosting accounts and get expanded services and control,” added Laurence Flynn, CEO, HostNexus.

Prices for VPS web hosting services from HostNexus start at $29.95 per month for 10 Gb. of disk space, two IP addresses and 256Mb of RAM to $84.95 per month for 100 Gb. of disk space, 10 IP addresses and 768 Mb of RAM.

HostNexus also introduced two new ‘Ruby on Rails’ web hosting plans based on either low-cost shared web hosting or VPS web hosting packages. The new web hosting packages use customized installations of CentOS or Unbuntu operating systems, upon which HostNexus preconfigures the “rails stack” (mod_rails) for customers as a basic part of the product offering.

“Ruby on Rails is popular because it allows programmers to write less code and get more done in less time,” said Flynn. “We’ve carefully designed our new Ruby on Rails Hosting packages that reflect that same philosophy.

“For smaller sites and ‘stealth mode’ projects, HostNexus offers an entry-level Ruby on Rails hosting package powered by a specially configured and optimized shared server,” said Flynn. “The package is ready to run an unlimited number of ‘Ruby on Rails’ applications.

“For experienced Rails users, we offer a virtual private server with mod_rails (Passenger) installed, full Shell/SSH Access, FastCGI, SCGI and pre-installed Gems,” concluded Flynn.

Ruby on Rails web hosting packages start at $8.35/month for 3 domains, one dedicated IP address, 5Gb storage space and 50Gb of bandwidth up to $99.95 per month for an unlimited number of domains, 10 dedicated IP addresses (on different C-Address blocks), 100 Gb. of storage space, and 1,000 Gb. of monthly traffic.
