Technology

The Managed Flex Server lets you operate numerous popular developer technologies. Here we draw a distinction between services and components that are administered by Hostpoint (“managed services and components”) and those that you can operate yourself (“self-managed services”).

  • Node.js
  • MariaDB
  • Memcached
  • Redis
  • PHP
  • Nginx
  • Apache Solr
  • Elasticsearch
  • Apache web server
  • Tomcat
 1const http = require('http');
 2const hostname = '127.0.0.1';
 3const port = 3000;
 4
 5// Our response handler
 6const handler = (req, res) => {
 7  res.statusCode = 200;
 8  res.end('Hello World!\n');
 9}
10
11// Our server
12http.createServer(handler)
13    .listen(port, hostname, () => {
14  console.log(`http://­${hostname}:` +
15              `${port}/`);
16});

Node.js

Node.js is a server-side platform used in software development for running network applications. It is used in particular to set up web servers.

 1<?php
 2// Create database connection with our
 3// username and password
 4$mysqli = new mysqli(
 5    'localhost',
 6    'my_username',
 7    'MaS3cr3tPassword',
 8    'my_database_name');
 9
10if($mysqli->connect_error)
11    die('Connection error: ' .
12        $mysqli->connect_error);
13else
14    echo 'Connection was created ' .
15         'successfully';

MariaDB

MariaDB is a database management system that started as a spin-off of MySQL. The project was launched by MySQL’s former head developer Michael Widenius, who also developed the Aria storage engine that forms the basis for MariaDB.

 1  2// Connect to our memcached server
 3$mc = new Memcached();
 4$mc->addServer('localhost', 11211);
 5
 6// Set some values
 7$mc->set('test_foo', 'Hello');
 8$mc­->set('test_bar', 'World!');
 9
10// Retrieve those values
11echo $mc->get('test_foo') . ' ' .
12    $mc­->get('test_bar');
13
14
15

Memcached

Memcached is a cache server for the general storage and retrieval of data from the memory. The software is used mainly for web pages that store data from database systems temporarily on the server.

 1#!/usr/bin/env python
 2import redis
 3
 4# Connect to our redis server
 5r = redis.StrictRedis(
 6    host='localhost',
 7    port=6379,
 8    db=0)
 9
10# Set some values
11r.set('test_foo', 'Hello')
12r.set('test_bar', 'World!')
13
14# Retrieve those values
15print(r.get('test_foo')
16      + ' '
17      + r.get('test_bar'))

Redis

Redis is an in-memory database with a simple key-value data structure and belongs to the family of NoSQL databases. Redis is probably the most common key-value-based database.

 1<html>
 2  <head>
 3    <title>PHP Test</title>

PHP

PHP is a scripting language with a syntax similar to C and Perl. It is mainly used to build dynamic websites or web applications. Today, PHP is the standard for the most common CMSs.

Nota: Please note that you can only manage the Nginx web server from the Hostpoint Control Panel and configure the specific settings there.

Nginx

Nginx is a web server software, reverse proxy and e-mail proxy developed by Igor Sysoev. Nginx is currently used on 62.7% of the top 10,000 websites and is frequently used for high-performance websites because of its intelligent caching functions.

 1<?php
 2// Setup the Solr client. Make sure
 3// your server is up and running.
 4$client = new SolrClient(array(
 5    'hostname' => 'localhost',
 6    'login' => 'my­username',
 7    'password' => 'MaS3cr3tPassword',
 8    'port' => 8983));
 9
10$doc = new SolrInputDocument();
11$doc->addField('id', 12345);
12$doc­->addField('cat', 'Software');
13
14print_r($client
15        ­->addDocument($doc)
16        ->getResponse());

Solr

Solr is an enterprise search platform written in Java and was developed as part of the Apache Lucene project.

 1#!/usr/bin/env python
 2from elasticsearch import Elasticsearch
 3
 4# Connect to the local elasticsearch
 5# server. Make sure your server is
 6# already setup and running.
 7es = Elasticsearch()
 8
 9es.index(index='test­index',
10         doc_type='tweet',
11         id=1,
12         body={'text': 'Hello World'})
13
14print(es.get(index='test­index',
15             doc_type= 'tweet',
16             id=1))

Elasticsearch

Elasticsearch saves documents in NoSQL format. Communication with the clients is processed via a RESTful web interface. Along with Solr, Elasticsearch is the most commonly used search server.

Note: Please note that you can only manage the Apache web server from the Hostpoint Control Panel and configure the specific settings there.

Apache web server

Apache HTTP Server is a free open-source product from the Apache Software Foundation and is one of the most widely used web server solutions.

 1package ch.mywebsite
 2
 3import javax.servlet.annotation.*
 4import javax.servlet.http.*
 5
 6@WebServlet(name = "Hello",
 7            value = ["/"])
 8class HomeController : HttpServlet() {
 9  override fun doGet(
10        req: HttpServletRequest,
11        res: HttpServletResponse) {
12    res.writer.write("Hello World")
13  }
14}
15

Tomcat

Apache Tomcat is a web server and web container that implements the specifications for Java servlets and JavaServer pages. It also allows web applications written in Java to be run with servlets or JavaServer pages (JSP).

  • Services that you can start and stop yourself using «Custom service control».
  • Managed services and components that we administer on your behalf.
  • Applications and application servers that you install yourself and keep up to date.

Managed services and components

We operate and monitor these common services for you, and we always keep them up to date.

  • Apache web server
  • Node.js
  • Java
  • Python
  • PHP
    (Parallel operation of multiple current versions)
  • Nginx web server
  • MariaDB
  • Memcached
  • Redis

Self-managed services

On the Managed Flex Server, you can install your own applications and manage them yourself as a customer. With «Custom service control» you can have them start and stop automatically during server reboots or when maintenance work is carried out.

For the following applications, we offer installation instructions and reduced support:

  • Apache Solr
  • Elasticsearch
  • Node.js Express
  • Tomcat
  • Django

But you can operate just about any application or your own developments if they are based on a supported programming language, or can be run on our Unix platform (FreeBSD). You are responsible for these applications, and we offer no application-specific support for them. Examples include:

  • Jboss/Wildfly
  • Ruby on Rails
  • Generic Java application
  • Generic Ruby application
  • Generic Node.js application
  • Generic PHP application
  • Generic Python application
  • Own application

Basic hosting services

In addition to specific developer and performance advantages, you also benefit from extensive basic services for managing your website, e-mail addresses and domains. The Managed Flex Server packages even offer a complete office solution.

CMS ready!

INSTALL, click and start!

We offer the latest versions of the most popular content management systems. Our Managed Flex Servers are preconfigured so that the specific CMS interacts perfectly with the databases and runs faster than ever.

  • WordPress
  • TYPO3
  • Drupal
  • Joomla!
  • Magento1
  • Neos1

CMS-optimized architecture

Stable and maximum CMS performance

Guaranteed server resources (vCPU and RAM) keep your CMS running at light speed at all times.

Caches: CMS accelerators

Various caches, such as Redis or Memcached, ensure optimal, fast website performance.

Intelligent CMS load balancing

Managed Flex Server services, such as the Hostpoint Control Panel, e-mail services, multiple daily backups, etc. run on separate hardware instances and clusters. As a result, your Managed Flex Server does not slow down these services and can make all of its resources available to your applications. This offers considerable added value in comparison to other managed hosting providers, who run all services directly on one and the same virtual machine.

Flash storage (SSD)

Our redundantly configured storage clusters are equipped with flash storage (SSD) for websites and databases. Our SSD storage speeds up storage clusters for your websites. For your databases, we also use 100% flash storage.

1 – Magento and Neos must be installed manually by you.

Multilayer server security

Uncompromising and impenetrable to hackers: six security mechanisms to ensure your Managed Flex Server is always secure. These include both electronic and non-electronic methods:
1
Infrastructure DDoS protection
We protect our infrastructure against DDoS attacks. This protection helps us reduce the risk of your website going offline for an extended period due to an attack.
2
Firewall and load balancing
The firewall is the very first protective barrier and therefore helps reduce the load on your system resources.
3
SSL encryption and certificates
Free SSL certificates from Let’s Encrypt or our Business EV SSL certificates allow you to encrypt data communication between your website visitors and your website.
4
FINMA-certified data center
Your server is located in one of Switzerland’s most secure data centers. Even Swiss banks entrust their sensitive data to Interxion, which is ISO- and FINMA-certified.
5
Server
management
We provide 24/7 monitoring of your managed server and regularly update your software and systems. In the unlikely event that something does go wrong, we will take care of it.
6
Stable servers located in Switzerland
Our entire infrastructure is located in one of the most secure, best-protected data centers in Switzerland that is even trusted by banks. Your data is stored in various separate fire protection zones.
