Running a large blog, e-commerce store, or custom application requires a lot of database input and output (I/O). As your site gets more popular and traffic starts to grow, your hard drives will start getting more and more concurrent I/O requests. During peak viewing times, the amount of I/O requests can slow down the recall of information from your database. This is especially true for sites on traditional “spinning media” disk drives. The physical limitations of spinning hard disks and the mechanical head restricts the amount of information that can be requested at a given time.
This is where our new SSD Hosting is superior. With a lack of moving parts, data transfer is only restricted by the speed of the network (which is why our shared servers are already on blazingly fast 10Gbps networks). We’ve benchmarked our SSDs against mechanical hard disks and, as expected, SSDs massively out perform hard disk drives on I/O transfer.
We provide a dedicated firewall and backup service to protect your website as standard, at no extra cost.
We also provide R1 CDP Daily Backups of your account to external storage, again at no extra cost.
Your website is protected by CloudLinux and ModSecurity. Both services protect your site from hackers and keep your data safe.
