Compare us to VPS providers

Old web hosting companies lock you into restrictions that hurt your application.

Bad performance during promotions

For e-commerce websites, you want to make a good first impression, and having page load times skyrocket during a promotion can cripple your business. With a limited plan, you're forced to choose between overpaying for hosting or having your server go down when you need it most. It's not just CPU limits that hurt you either, the same is true for every resource.

"Out of Memory Killer"

When you don't have enough memory for your server, performance begins to suffer because Linux cannot speed up access to your storage with caching. Once storage performance suffers, your application uses even more memory while more slowly responding to requests. Eventually, Linux begins killing your application to free up memory.

Old plans waste money every day

It's impossible to fit your application within your server's plan perfectly. Every application is unique, and your needs change constantly. When you aren't using something you're paying for, you're throwing away your money. At our competitors, you're paying for a limit you can't use, so you always lose.

Plans are structured to lock you in

By design, old web hosting companies limit you on what you need most: disk space. It's the one thing that always grows, even when your business doesn't. This is intended to drive up your costs over time. They make more profit by forcing you to pay for more CPU and memory, even though all you need is more space.

Our vertical scaling versus horizontal scaling

Deploying a web application on many machines is difficult and costly.

Adding more machines wastes money

When you scale an application horizontally, you need to constantly add and remove nodes. Each individual machine will be restricted by a plan, just like one individual server at any VPS provider. This means that the inefficiency you experience on one single server is multiplied by countless servers when you scale horizontally.

Scaling horizontally is difficult

For traditional web applications, like WordPress, Magento, and PrestaShop, it can be very difficult, if not impossible, to move from a single node to a pool of servers. While custom applications, which are designed from the ground up to be scaled horizontally, can be adapted to container solutions, it is very hard to move applications designed for a single server.

Horizontal scaling means managing containers

Large companies that can afford the teams capable of horizontally scaling an application rely on container solutions like Kubernetes. While horizontal scaling is a great solution for Fortune 500 companies, it's very expensive for small and medium-sized businesses to maintain experienced employees who can manage clusters of Docker containers.

Servers cost more for short periods of time

Large providers, such as AWS and Microsoft, offer significant discounts for reserving servers a long time into the future. This means that if you want to turn up and down virtual machines as your usage changes throughout the day, you will be paying a premium compared to longer billing cycles.

Take a deep dive

Vertical scaling is much easier because it only refers to scaling with one single server. When your server and its application require more resources, vertical scaling solves this by allocating more resources to your server. With old web hosting companies, this is accomplished by having you upgrade your plan, locking you into a new rate, and incurring significant downtime. With Slicie, your server scales automatically, without a reboot.

Horizontal scaling is much more complicated because it involves many servers. You need to add complexity to your application by allowing it to be distributed across many servers, usually done with containerization, using software like Docker and Kubernetes. While horizontal scaling can handle huge, fortune 500 sized systems, it requires a lot of skilled employees to manage.

Almost certainly. If you're running a web application, it's practically impossible not to save using our automatic scaling. The reason is that with a hosting plan, you're paying for a fixed limit. You can't actually use that limit because you'd run into serious performance problems (or worse) if you were to do so. With our unique approach to billing, you pay based on your usage, not some arbitrary limit.

In some cases, people will see huge savings. If you're paying hundreds of dollars a month for a server, the potential savings can be dramatic. It's not uncommon for people to use just 10% of their server, which translates to a huge reduction in cost when moving to our hosting.

Yes, but not as much as you might imagine. For one thing, we bill based on your usage each day. For instance, if your site gets aggressively crawled by many bots, that usage would only be reflected in that day's costs. A single day of heavy usage is not a huge expense; it does not drive up your costs for the entire month.

It's important to keep in mind that your website will suffer poor performance if the same thing happens on a limited server. Our customers value their applications running smoothly, and that is a worthwhile compromise.

You are free to limit your server using our control panel. You can adjust your limits at any time.

This is particularly useful for people interested in reselling our servers.

Yes, our system has insight into how your virtual machine is utilizing its memory using virtio kernel drivers. We provide extra memory in order to provide for caches, like your page cache.
