The MicroRack Server System is a powerful and cost effective alternative
to buying and maintaining your own dedicated server. A secure and reliable solution
for e-commerce and virtual hosting as well as corporate and small business applications.
The MicroRack range of virtual dedicated servers utilize the
highly secure and reliable FreeBSD
operating system and are equipped with the advanced
Web Control Panel System.
Unlike dedicated servers available from other providers the MicroRack servers offer you a "semi-managed" server solution at no additional cost.
The core FreeBSD installation is located on a managed, secure read-only partition in that regular updates of all of the core operating system software will be continually updated as the latest versions become available so there is no need for you to have to compile your own versions or install patches and bug fixes as these updates and installations will be handled for you by our support department.
All of the data on your MicroRack server is automatically backed up on separate file systems once daily at midnight GMT. If you require the restoration of any data you can request that a specific file or directory be replaced for you from the backup archive.
The virtual sub-hosting site users can be allowed the ability to create and manage their own user accounts which can be allocated with both hard and soft disk space quotas and a maximum number of user and/or email accounts.
Both the main administrative and end user client control panels are available in 10 different languages, English, German, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Russian, Greek, Albanian, Italian and Dutch with additional languages to follow in future. Each MicroRack server comes complete with it's own dedicated web, mail, and ftp servers, providing you with full control over all aspects of your servers configuration. With full root access you have total control over your server environment. You can compile and install any software desired, create IMAP, POP3, FTP, TELNET or SSH users and access all server configuration files. The Apache Web server provides support for most of the popular Apache modules.
The operating system on the MicroRack servers is a standard version of the FreeBSD OS with a number special modifications having been made to enhance the system which means that all of the standard file structure, services, and commands of a "generic" FreeBSD dedicated server operating system are maintained. Support for Perl, PHP5, MySQL, FrontPage and other common applications has been pre-installed for you and the many third party applications or "ports" which are available for both the FreeBSD and Linux operating systems will be compatible with your new MicroRack server.
