Shared Hosting Plan Benefits and Comparisons

Vivio has worked very hard to balance features and affordability in our Shared Hosting plans. This page will explain the differences between those plans and help you choose the plan that is best for your site. For more details on the various plans, including much of what is below, please feel free to visit our Website Hosting page at the following link:



The power behind Vivio Technologies Shared Hosting resides in it's use of CloudLinux to keep your site working to it's full potential no matter what your neighbors on the host are doing. This is accomplished through the use of a Light Virtual Environment (LVE), which isolates your resources, providing each user with a specific resource allocation which only they use, making our Shared environments funciton much the same as a Virtual Private Server (VPS).

CloudLinux also provides our users with OptimumCache, which provides significant boosts to your IO by caching frequently accessed files for faster retrieval.


CloudLinux settings by service plan

Our Shared Hosting plans are broken up into three tiers, Standard, Ultra, and Reseller, with resources increasing for each plan.

1.) CPU core allocations are listed as percentages of a single core, so 100% means one core, 200% means two cores, and 300% means the plan is allocated a full three CPU cores.

2.) The Virtual Memory total indicates how much memory may be allocated to your processing threads. Memory that is used by the OS, web server, and database do not count towards your memory total.

3.) The Physical Memory total indicates how much memory may be actively used by your processing threads. Because similar processes, such as PHP, share memory, the amount of Physical Memory needed is typically much lower than Virtual Memory.

4.) Entry Processes indicates how many concurrent connections your account can process simultaneously. This can be a good indicator of how many simultaneous users on your site can support, depending on the number of threads spawned by each user.

5.) This indicates the total number of threads your application can spawn.

6.) Concurrent MySQL Connections indicates how many simultaneous MySQL connections you can have at any given time.

7.) Outgoing Email Limit indicates how many email messages you can send out per-hour, per-account. This means all of your sites would be limited to a combined total of less than or equal to this total.

8.) I/O LImit indicates how much data can be read/written from storage at any given time.

9.) I/O Operations per Second indicates the total number of read/write operations that can be processed per second.

10.) Files (inodes) indicates the total number of files, directories, and symlinks an account can have at any given time.


Other Differentiators
