The Technology That Powers Self Hosted

The Secret Sauce That Makes Us Better

We believe in researching different technologies to bring our users top of the line performance, stability, and security. We wouldn't settle for any less and we hope you're the same. Our well thought through technology stack consists of SSDs, MariaDB, Cloudlinux, R1Soft, Litespeed and Cloudflare all of which are included as standard with our web hosting packages.

The Stack

SSDs

Solid State Drives or SSDs allow for much faster reads and writes of your data than traditional spinning hard drives. This is especially noticeable on larger sites that need to read and write to large databases.

Cloudlinux

Cloudlinux improves the stability, security and performance of your website as well as giving you nifty features such as the ability to select your preferred version of PHP (Entrepreneurs package only).

MariaDB

MariaDB is a high performance database system that is used in place of the more traditional MySQL. MariaDB is used because it is fast, scalable and robust, as well as being feature rich making it very versatile for a wide variety of use cases.

Litespeed

LiteSpeed Web Server handles connections faster and more efficiently than any other web server on the market today. This leads to improved static content speed and the fastest web applications. This means web apps like Magento or Wordpress run even faster on our LiteSpeed servers.

Cloudflare

Cloudflare is a third party service which will speed up your site by caching your static content and delivering it to your users from a datacenter located near them. CloudFlare also helps improve the security of your site by intercepting wrong doers and attackers before they even get to it. As well as caching static content Cloudflare now also caches the previously uncacheable with Railgun. Websites using Railgun show a 143% improvement in HTML load times and a 90% decrease in time to first byte (TTFB) responses.

R1Soft

We understand that your data is precious and as such we utilise the industry leading continuous data protection (CDP) solution to back up your websites files and databases. R1Soft allows us to take hourly offsite backups meaning if something goes wrong or you delete something you shouldn’t have, you’d only need to go back a matter of minutes. Our hourly backups are rotated every 12 hours and our nightly archives are rotated every 14 days giving you the peace of mind you deserve.
