A few months back we launched our cloud hosting services in our New York City datacenter. That launch was our most successful new product to date, but we kept seeing one question come up: when will you have the cloud in Singapore? After months of work we can proudly say you asked, so we listened, and now Singapore is our first international cloud datacenter!
Similar to our New York City deployment the Singapore cloud has been approached with quality in mind above all else. We’ve partnered with an industry leader in the Singapore market for our datacenter facilities and we’ve invested in top-of-the-line server and network hardware. We were also able to leverage the knowledge and experience we gained by deploying our first cloud in New York City and apply that to Singapore. It took our extremely talented (and certainly ready for a vacation) provisioning team roughly half the time to research and deploy our Singapore infrastructure to production. At that rate we’ll have a cloud in every location by 2019! ;)
You can find more details about the cloud infrastructure below, but for those of you just looking to order here’s your quick links!
If you’re looking for a full cloud server that includes root access these links will be for you. Full details about these cloud servers can be found at on this page
If instead you’re looking for shared hosting that’s in our cloud infrastructure (cloud hosting) you can sign up using this link:

As is the case with any properly built cloud infrastructure there is no single point of failure at the hardware or network level. We’ve focused on making sure our cloud can scale as you scale, ensuring that if you need more CPU, RAM, or disk on a moments notice we have the capacity to provide it. We’ve spent hundreds of hours testing countless scenarios and we’re confident we’ll be able to provide the reliable environment you need for your most critical projects.
Currently our Singapore cloud plans support CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, and more. If there’s a Linux/BSD based operating system you want just ask, we’ll make it available! cPanel will be supported on all packages so you can create your own hosting environment in no time. Cloud plans start with 1GB of RAM and scale up to 16GB so we have a package to meet any of your performance needs.
As with all our services control is integrated directly into the client area so you can view your resource usage, rebuild the cloud server, reboot it, change your password…whatever you want really, it’s your server!
As always if you have any questions just contact us and we’ll clear up any concerns you have. And hey, if you have another location you’d like to see a cloud in, just let us know. We’re listening :)
