Ultra fast Hosting
Always the Hottest Speed Technologies!
Free Email Accounts
You can have unlimited number of FREE email accounts at your domain name – e.g. email@example.com. You can also use forwarders and aliases that allow you to forward emails received to any of your email accounts to another mailbox. Our hosting plan includes the three most popular web-based mail clients: Horde, RoundCube and SquirrelMail, so you can access your email accounts from any computer with an Internet connection.
FASTER WEB SERVER
Files and databases on all of our shared hosting plans are stored on cutting-edge Solid State Drive technology. SSDs provide for a 1000x increase in input/output operations as compared to regular drives.
SSD drives are included in all shared and cloud plans.
NGINX server speed
We use NGINX web server technology to speed up the load of the static content of all the websites we host.
NGINX setup is included in all shared and cloud plans. It is also available for dedicated servers as part of the performance boosters.
For the most popular applications – WordPress, Joomla and Drupal we have also built our own caching mechanism based on NGINX reverse proxy. It speeds up dramatically the serving of the dynamic content of the sites too. Our SuperCacher also allows website speed optimization through memcached.
Our free Cloudflare CDN makes your website load faster in any part of the world by caching its content and distributing it over multiple data centers. When foreign visitors access your website, our CDN delivers the content much faster from the data center closest to them.
HTTP/2 enabled servers
HTTP/2 is the newest network protocol, which significantly speeds up loading of websites in the browser. We are proud to be among the first hosts to support it on all our servers. HTTP/2 requires encrypted connection. To allow anyone take advantage of this great protocol we provide Let’s Encrypt free SSL Certificates.
Whenever a technology or update is introduced, that makes php executions faster, you can count on us to implement it promptly on our servers. For example, we made it possible for our users to take advantage of PHP7, which is known for its great speed benefits, while it was still in beta.
Handcrafted Solutions for 99.99% Uptime
Linux Containers (LXC)
Our platform is built on top of the cutting edge LXC (Linux containers) technology. We have chosen to use LXC, because it is extremely resource efficient, highly elastic and provides great stability in times of unexpected traffic spikes. While building our own implementation of the LXC, our talented DevOps have written multiple Linux Kernel patches, which we are proud to see now incorporated in the official Linux Kernel code itself.
Pro-active Server Monitoring
Our in-house created server monitoring is another piece of art of the SiteGround DevOps team. It is extremely lightweight and can check the server status far more often than standard monitoring systems. It not only detects current issues and fixes them immediately, but is also able to foresee upcoming problems and to take actions to prevent them.
Unique Anti-bot AI
Brute-force attacks by botnets are a serious global issue that very few companies can handle effectively. We have developed an extremely effective Artificial Intelligence solution that stops between 500 000 and 2 million brute-force attempts per hour across all our servers before they have even reached our customers’ sites. It not only prevents unauthorized access, but saves your resources.
