We strive to ensure maximum data protection and uptime for our customers’ web sites. We strive to ensure maximum data protection and uptime for our customers’ web sites, that’s the reason why we have added a specially designed anti-DdoS device to protect our network from unfriendly outer attacks.
All our servers in the US data center are now part of our new cloud hosting platform whose main goal is to minimize all possible downtimes and to offer a significant increase in the performance of both your Control Panel and your website. Here is just a short list of the benefits you will enjoy in our US data center with our cloud hosting platform:
- enhanced service stability – we store different services (emails, MySQL databases, etc.) on different servers so as to make our overall platform less vulnerable to hack/DDoS attacks.
- faster servers – we have recently upgraded our network to 10 Gbps, which means that our servers are faster than ever and so will be your website
- faster maintenance – by ensuring spare servers, we have simplified server maintenance procedures and hence minimized frustrating service interruptions and downtimes
- migration to SSDs – all web hosting users who are using less than 1 GB of storage space are now located on fast SSDs. This means that they will enjoy much faster read/write speeds and faster website speeds. We are planning to move all cloud hosting accounts to SSDs as well.
- web accelerators (Memcached, Varnish, Node.js) – our web acceleration tools will help you boost the speed of your website even further.
