We offer a rich set of cloud features to fit your needs, no matter the application.

  • Hourly billing: create and destroy virtual machines at any time, and only pay for the hours used. Our service is prepaid, and payments can be made via Paypal or Bitcoin.
  • Custom operating systems: add custom ISO and qcow2 images directly from the panel by submitting a URL to the image; once the panel has finished downloading your image, you can begin provisioning VMs from it immediately.
  • Live snapshots: snapshot your running VM at any time (no need to even turn it off!). The disk state will then be saved on a distributed filesystem, and can be cloned to provision more instances with the same configuration, or simply kept as a backup.
  • API: a powerful API is available to programatically manage your servers and other cloud services.
  • Private virtual networks: isolate your network traffic and get more control over your network configuration.
  • Load balancers: HTTP(S) and TCP load balancers can be created within virtual networks to easily set up a distributed and redundant service.
  • Detachable volumes: create arbitrary-sized block devices (volumes) and attach/detach them to virtual machine instances on the fly. Volumes are stored on a reliable, distributed Ceph RADOS cluster.
  • Security groups: define external traffic restrictions on a VM-group level to make securing your software easy.
  • Startup scripts: specify shell or cloud-config scripts to be run the first time your new VM instances boot.
  • Server monitoring and DNS hosting: we offer complementary server monitoring (with various checks such as ping, TCP connect, and HTTP substring, and alerts over e-mail or SMS) and DNS hosting.

Based in British Columbia, Canada, LunaNode Hosting Inc. first launched in August 2013, focusing on low-cost, reliable KVM virtual private server hosting. We use OpenStack for our back-end and an in-house billing / VM management panel called lndynamic on the front-end. We are committed to security and privacy and believe in the necessity of free software (see our GitHub). Our staff consists of experienced developers, system administrators, and network engineers; we are constantly monitoring and improving our infrastructure to ensure maximal uptime, and developing new tools to help you better manage your virtual machines.
