Our hosting is now even faster

When it comes to websites, fast is good – so we thought you might be pleased to hear that we’ve been working hard to make your websites faster than ever.

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been moving your sites to new servers, and we’re pretty proud of them:

  • We’ve eliminated hard drives completely by using enterprise SSD disks in a RAID 10 array. This means disk access is almost 10 times quicker than it was.  
  • Instead of Intel Xeon E3 CPU’s, we are now using the much faster E5 model.
  • Each server now has access to 2 GB of internet connectivity, some 20 times faster than our previous 100 mbit connections.

Nobody likes to wait for websites to load, so we’ve made sure that we won’t be the bottleneck when someone is visiting your site.
