Shared Cloud Is The Future
At Kickassd we are always looking for ways to improve our service, and offer you the best possible service. What is the #1 cause of downtime in the shared hosting industry?
Typically shared hosting providers use strictly dedicated servers. When hardware fails on a dedicated server it often means downtime and it can in some cases be a downtime of days. Even if they have backups as they should, restoring that to a new server when there are Terabytes of data and 100’s or even 1000’s of accounts involved takes a very longtime.
As usual we are avoiding the “the norm” and doing things different in order ot bring you the best possible service. Shared cloud hosting has so many benefits that it makes perfect sense for us to go with it. Why are other shared hosting providers not doing this then?
Simple, $$. Shared hosting in the cloud costs the provider a bit more money, and so takes a bite out of the profit earned. This is a hit that we are willing to take in order to offer a better service.
How Does it Work?
With the exception of our Montreal location all of our Elastic Sites hosting is offered in the cloud.
- Each of our cloud servers is replicated across a minimum of 2 physical servers.
- If the physical server our cloud server is on has an issue that causes it to go offline our cloud server immediately and without interruption comes online on another physical server, and replicates to another physical server.
What About Performance?
We are all about performance, and carefully chose our cloud based not only on reliability but on performance. Our cloud is purely ran on SSD storage with cutting edge hardware such as CPU and Ram. Our shared cloud hosting offers the same high performance environment that you have come to expect.
Currently our shared cloud hosting is available only in Frankfurt Germany. We do not at this time have the option to offer our services as shared cloud in Montreal and that location will remain traditional shared hosting on dedicated servers.
- Chicago is our next planned shared hosting location followed by Amsterdam and London.
As always if you have any questions about our services don’t hesitate to contact our fast and friendly support!
