What’s fast, green and secure? We promise you it’s not a trick question. We asked our staff and customers and here were a few of our favourite answers:
“A frog hopping mad in a box”, “A cucumber on wheels locked inside a cage” and “A runner bean in a saucepan”.
They’re all super guesses but the answer we were looking for was…
“Our new lightning fast, green Web Hosting”.
It’s fast, it’s green and it’s secure – we’re delighted to launch our most advanced Web Hosting ever!
Fast Web Hosting
The web servers that power all four of our new Web Hosting packages use ultra-fast SSD disks with NVMe technology. Putting aside the acronyms for now, what this basically means is that website files can be accessed much quicker than if they were stored on a traditional hard drive. In a world where Google uses loading speed as a ranking factor, a website that is extra-speedy has a much better chance of appearing higher up the search results.
Our new Web Hosting also uses a variety of caching techniques to further improve loading times. Essentially, as well as the main SSD disks, there is also instantly-accessible temporary memory in which a copy of the most popular website files can be stored for even faster access.
It is, put simply, the fastest and most technologically advanced Web Hosting we’ve ever been able to offer.
Green Web Hosting
Climate change is one of the most pressing problems facing humanity at the moment and we believe everyone has a part to play in reducing carbon usage.
We’re delighted to report that the electricity that powers our datacentre is now provided by 100% renewable energy sources. All of us are ecstatic to have reached this milestone, but we know there is still further work to be done.
By hosting your website on our new Web Hosting platform, you’ll be able to proudly tell your customers that it’s powered by green hosting, entirely using renewable energy.
Secure Web Hosting
Websites using our new Web Hosting are protected by our in-house Security Shield, a collection of tools and features that work together to keep hackers at bay.
- DDOS Protection: Security Shield monitors for any sign of malicious requests to your website and will actively take steps to mitigate them. These could include blocking IP addresses, ranges or regions.
- Auto-patching: If you have a CMS such as WordPress or Joomla installed, Security Shield will automatically install any critical security updates, to keep your website safe.
- Malware Scanner: Regular scans will be run across your website, looking for known viruses or suspicious code. If anything untoward is found, it will be safely quarantined so it is no longer a threat to anyone.
We’re really proud of these new packages, and we believe that with our Web Hosting your website will find a home for life.
