Choosing the Right Hosting Solution

Make sure your website is running on the right juice. You won't be winning any championship's if you put orange juice in this bad boy.

The Golden Rule. You get what you pay for, "Usually"

Providers are offering packages that give you hundreds of email accounts, unlimited bandwidth, millions of MySQL Databases, website Builders and everything else you can think of, and of course, it only costs 100 bucks. So, where's the catch? Well, to start with, you get say, 1 GB of storage. So 100 email accounts divided by your 1 GB of storage, minus your website allows a whopping five to ten emails per mailbox. Now, your website only needs one Database. What's the point of the others? Sounding a bit like a sales tactic? What about MongoDB and PostgreSQL? We tested, Mongo outperformed the others in many instances. Now, one of the most important questions you have to ask is, what security measures are in place? If your website is not performing as it should You may already be in hot water. If you are using shared hosting, have they taken the correct procedures to protect your website against other poorly managed or malicious websites sharing your server.

Getting too Complicated?

As our goal is to provide quality hosting solutions, not bore our clients to death, we asked Sandy if she could help. She wasn't very helpful, she jumped onto the net and went looking for ideas.

Webservers - This is the software that your website needs to run

Tick

Apache

Stable, easy to use, works with everything but has speed limitations on its own. They named this helicopter after it!

check

NGINX

Pronounced "Engine X". Fast, but a bit tricky to get right. Great for static websites. McDonald's relies on NGINX. We think.

check

LiteSpeed

LiteSpeed or HTTP/3 is the new kid on the block. Fast, secure & comes with a cool WordPress Plugin. We like LiteSpeed a lot! However, we have some questions regarding their tests.
