Welcome to another chapter of Monovm’s inside stories! In this issue we will take you through all the special milestones that we went through during the months of June, July and August or during the summer.
We hit some major milestones during these past months.
1. New infrastructure for VPS
Our technical team has been working day and night for developing a new and improved infrastructure for our services. With months of research, hard work and countless hours put into this project, we have created a new system.
This new system is up and running and we’re proud to let you in on it!
With this new system, all our VPS orders will be activated instantly! Yes you heard it right. In our previous system whenever you place an order it took around 15 mins for the virtual machine (VM) to be activated.
Now if you will order a Linux VPS, it will be activated in less than 55 seconds, and for Windows VPS it will be activated in less than 2.5 minutes.
You will no longer have to wait idly by till it’s activated. Best part is that you won’t have to pay anything extra!
2. New VPS control panel
With the constant work put into giving you the best service as possible we have developed a control panel in which you will have more access to your VPS. With the new control panel you can directly:
- Start and Stop the VPS
- Restart the VPS
- Turn ON and OFF your VPS
- Connect to the VPS via SSH
- Connect the VPS via VNC
- Reinstall any operating systems
- Add new control panels
- Install applications and much more!
You can access this control panel from your client area! This is how you do it:
Login to your Monovm account > Click on view all services > Select your VPS > Under “Server Information” you can find the new control panel
(PS check the tabs shown by the red arrow)
3. All VPS will be based on SSDs
Now from 1st of September all our VPS will be based on SSD storage! Yes you read it right. For all the VPS orders you will make, it will be set up on SSD storage devices.
Enjoy higher and better speeds than using the traditional spinning drives. We have also incorporated SSD RAID 10 technology with all the new VPS.
So what will happen to the old VPS’s that we have been using?
Don’t worry! All the current VMs will be transferred to the new system so that everyone will be able to enjoy the lightning speeds of the SSDs.
4. SSL partnership with Sectigo
We’re really glad we were able to make this happen. We’re now direct partners with Sectigo and are able to provide the SSLs directly to our clients (you) without having a middle man.
With this partnership we have a wide variety of SSLs that you can choose to suite your needs perfectly. With this partnership you will be able to get an SSL certificate for 2 years instead of one.

On a final note we wish all of you good health during this pandemic situation.
