All of our hosting packages come with all the things you need to rank.
All of our hosting accounts include GZip Compression level 6 by default.
As a Certified Cloudflare Partner all of our hosting plans include free CDN services moving your files closer to your visitors.
Cloudflare has built an expansive global network of data centers that cache static content closer to users, and deliver dynamic content over the fastest and most reliable private backbone links.
The Cloudflare network is API-first, allowing customers to easily automate workflows with highly granular control over how content is cached and purged. With Cloudflare Workers, customers can easily customize caching based on their application needs.
Cloudflare supports over 18 million domains on the web, and intelligently routes content requests on its network along the fastest path using Argo Smart Routing. Traffic can also be load balanced across multiple origins, using proximity and network latency to determine the most efficient destination for each request.
As part of our integration with Cloudflare your site’s images will be optimized without having to download an additional plugin.
By default all of our hosted sites CSS and JS files are minified.
Your site’s served pages have to be rebuilt with each visitor but by default your hosting includes Cloudflare’s cache.
PHP 7.3 is 200% faster than PHP 5.6 and includes all of the necessary extensions for a robust hosting experience.
MySQL: MySQL has generated a strong following since it was started in 1995. Some organizations that use MySQL include GitHub, US Navy, NASA, Tesla, Netflix, WeChat, Facebook, Zendesk, Twitter, Zappos, YouTube, Spotify. You can check the full list here: https://www.mysql.com/customers/.
MariaDB: MariaDB is being used by many large corporations, Linux distributions, and more. Some organizations that use MariaDB include Google, Craigslist, Wikipedia, archlinux, RedHat, CentOS, and Fedora.
Since MariaDB is a fork of MySQL, the database structure and indexes of MariaDB are the same as MySQL. This allows you to switch from MySQL to MariaDB without having to alter your applications since the data and data structures will not need to change.
Better Performance in Flash Storage
MariaDB also provides MyRocks storage engine that adds the RocksDB database to it. RocksDB is a database that has been designed for better performance in flash storage by providing a higher level of data compression.
Parallel Execution of Queries
One of the recent versions of MariaDB – 10.0 allows for parallel execution of several queries. The idea is that some queries from the Master can be replicated in the slave and can, therefore, be executed in parallel. This parallelism in query execution certainly provides MariaDB an edge over MySQL.
MariaDB also introduces a new concept called “Thread Pooling”. Previously, when multiple connections to a database were needed, for each connection, a thread was opened leading to a “one thread per connection” based architecture. With “Thread Pooling”, there will be a pool of open threads which a new connection can pick up and query the database. This way, a new thread need not be opened for every new connection request leading to faster query results. This feature is available in the Enterprise edition of MySQL but is unfortunately unavailable in the Community edition.
MariaDB provides several powerful storage engines out-of-the-box which are not available in MySQL. For example, XtraDB, Aria, etc. To set up these storage engines for MySQL, you need to install them manually which may not be the most convenient thing.
Cloudflare offers more than just performance, it was originally conceived as a security entity.
Reverse Proxy Service
Unmetered DDoS mitigation to maintain performance and availability
Denial of Service attacks continue to grow in sophistication and force: more distributed, greater volumes of traffic, and encroaching on the application layer.
A successful attack increases unnecessary costs on your infrastructure and IT/security staff. More importantly, it hurts your revenue, customer satisfaction, and brand.
To combat attacks and stay online, you’ll need a solution that’s resilient scalable, and intelligent.
SSL / TLS free domain certificates through LetsEncrypt for your domain.
