Do you want a fast, secure website hosting that is always live, optimised and kept up to date?

“What ‘technical’ things need to be considered for website hosting?”

The most important technical considerations are the optimisation, website hosting, security and ongoing updates to your website. Ignoring these usually results in not being found by search engines, slow website performance, malware & hacking attacks and your website breaking due to outdated software.

Website Hosting

We host our clients’ websites on WordPress specific cloud servers. Our website hosting solutions are specifically made for WordPress and don’t share resources with hundreds of other websites. We also run a caching mechanism based on NGINX reverse proxy called SuperCacher. It speeds up dramatically the serving of the dynamic content of the sites too. Our SuperCacher also allows website speed optimisation through memcached.

Guaranteed Resources

Our cloud platform website hosting offers powerful dedicated resources and is optimized for efficiency and speed that guarantees a top performance of your site. Each cloud account is created on a private lightweight Linux container. The underlying server infrastructure uses SSD disks. Our setup provides unmatched resource efficiency and site speed.

Fully Managed Website Hosting

Your website hosting comes with our super powerful hosting stack. It includes CentOS, Apache/Nginx, managed PHP versions, MySQL and Postgre support. The Stack is heavily customized and optimized for best performance and our devops maintain and update it for you.

Safety & Security

Your website hosting health is constantly monitored by our unique automated systems. We also guard it from hack attacks, SPAM and malicious bot resource usage. Proactive software updates and patches are applied by our best security experts whenever this is needed.

Highly Available Network

Our partner facilities rely on network connectivity to multiple major carriers for the highest possible availability and speed.

Redundant Electrical Systems

Electricity outages are prevented by multiple power feeds, own power generators and enterprise-class UPS technology.

High-end Physical Systems

All facilities are well protected by 24×7 human security, biometrics, access control man traps, bullet proof lobbies and video surveillance.

Proactive Server Monitoring

Our in-house created server monitoring is another piece of art. It is extremely lightweight and can check the server status far more often than standard monitoring systems. It not only detects current issues and fixes them immediately but is also able to foresee upcoming problems and to take actions to prevent them.

Unique Anti-bot Artificial Intelligence

Brute-force attacks by botnets are a serious global issue that very few companies can handle effectively. We have developed an extremely effective Artificial Intelligence solution that stops between 500 000 and 2 million brute-force attempts per hour across all our servers before they have even reached our customers’ sites. It not only prevents unauthorized access but saves your resources.

Secure Account Isolation

This was one of the first technological innovations introduced back in 2008. We were the first to come up with an efficient CHROOT account isolation of accounts on shared servers at a time, when other hosts thought this was not possible. On our machines we still have one of the best security isolations in the industry.

We received quotes from other companies that promised the same solutions and service, yet yours come out more cost effective in the end and we preferred your working style.
