Cloud Sites

What are Cloud Sites?

Our hosting is based on Cloud Sites, the superior solution for shared web hosting. Designed meticulously to provide all of the incredible features and power of a cloud hosting environment with the ease and simplicity of shared web hosting, enabling you to scale your hosting to your needs.

You don't have to sacrifice scalable performance and improved redundancy to utilize an easy to understand platform. Take advantage of our services by signing up today:

Cloud Sites Features

Our platform provides the following features to help deliver your content better, faster, and more reliably than ever before:

  • High Availability: Cloud hosting leverages pooled CPU, memory, and storage resources for increased redundancy and improved performance. With the ability to quickly and easily balance the workload across all the computer resources, we are able to offer better uptime and reliability.
  • Performance: Our Cloud Sites platform includes a fully integrated content caching solution giving your sites better speed from the start with no optimization required as well as freeing up your CPU and memory resources to focus on any dynamic requests.
  • Server Performance Dashboard: You'll have access to an easy to use dashboard that allows you to quickly see the status of your server and take any action you need.
  • Automatic Failover: If a hardware device experiences difficulty, you won't even know. Your site will automatically begin to be served from an alternate server with minimal downtime so that you don't have to worry about server-specific issues.
  • Fully Managed: We will maintain our cloud platform to the latest and most secure environment available. Our experts deal with maintaining languages, security patches, port access, etc. so you don't have to.
