Cluster Setup for Professional Blogging Sites

We have had a heavy surge of orders from people who are Professional Bloggers recently and we have deployed numerous such clusters over the past few days. We have now standardized the setup required for most Professional Bloggers and so have also decided to launch it as a service plan itself so that bloggers don't waste their time on figuring out what the best standard configuration can be for their popular blogs. The cluster setup for Blog sites is specifically designed to handle popular sites running blog scripts like Wordpress, Wordpress MU, MovableType, b2Evolution, Nucleus, Blog System and any other blogging or microblogging scripts. The objective of the setup is to make the sites ultra fast, seo friendly and digg proof to maximize the revenue output. Optional services like Geolocated IPs and installation of third party plugins/softwares like memcached to provide greater speed to your blogs are also available with this plan. The plan includes two Webservers and one MySQL server setup to run one website in round robin load balanced environment. The default webserver used is Lighttpd with PHP configured to run as FastCGI and MySQL 4.x/5.x/5.1.x is made available on request.

The configurations for the two Webservers are as below:
  • Intel Pentium D 3.0Ghz Processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 250GB SATA Hard drive
  • 2000GB Bandwidth per server
  • 5 IP addresses
  • 100Mbit Port Connectivity
The configuration for the MySQL server would be as below:
  • Intel Core2Duo E8400 3.0Ghz Processor
  • 2GB RAM

  • Cpanel Control panel
The setup comes with preinstalled wordpress and 10 popular plugins as well as 2 popular themes from . We can also assist in moving your existing blog from your old host to the cluster for free. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact us.
