Atlas has launched representing the 7th overall hosting platform and first platform under the new company, Hostineer. Atlas is built off RHEL 7.3 and features PHP 7.1. Atlas is the first platform launched from the second hypervisor, HV2, which uses faster disks (15k vs 10k) over HV1 in addition to a 1 GB RAID cache, 12 cores, and 144 GB RAM. Given the amount of hardware available, Atlas will be the first platform to dynamically scale up and scale down CPU and memory as needed to cope with changes in traffic allowing bursts up to 8 dedicated cores and 72 GB RAM reducing – if not eliminating – slowdowns due to changes in traffic. Resource coordination comes through the Cloud Resouce Scaling Protocol (“CRSP”) that constantly aggregates resource utilization between the multiple platforms on a hypervisor, then either allocates or asks neighboring platforms to donate based upon resource availability.


  • RHEL 7.3
  • Resource scaling via CRSP protocol
  • curl HTTP/2 (libcurl 7.43 minimum)
    Missed this target in Luna launch :sob:
  • kpatch
    Uninterrupted, rebootless kernel upgrades
  • PostgreSQL 9.6
  • MariaDB 10.2
  • PHP 7.1
  • bump PHP memory limit from 160 MB to 192 MB
  • default Ruby interpreter version, 2.3.2
  • automatic loading of .rvmrc project files
  • remote IP address scrubbing from authenticated SMTP over 465 and 587
  • SSL no longer requires an IP address prereq

Late Changes

The following changes require significant control panel changes and missed launch, but are planned for implementation within the next 90 days:

  • DKIM signing
  • Postfix SNI
