eNlight Cloud Who Can Use It

If you are currently using a VPS for your website and related services, then the eNlight Cloud could be the perfect solution to allow you to expand your online presence. With auto-scaling Virtual Machines and an order process with which you can configure the precise specifications that you require, eNlight represents a solution that can save you money whilst offering you a more powerful hosting service without compromising on uptime or security.

eNlight Virtual Machines represent the ideal environment for people running their own web hosting companies.  Like other forms of hosting that offer a dedicated hosting environment, you can install a control panel such as Plesk or cPanel that can be used for website management on your Virtual Machine.  Your customers will be able to enjoy the speeds and scalability offered by the eNlight Cloud; if there is a particular website hosted on your server that begins to impact on the performance of your VM, additional resources can be hurried in to scale the VM up as necessary.  This auto-scaling can be beneficial in many different situations, for example, your business may launch a new product that could create a rush of traffic to your website. read more
