We've been in the web hosting business since 1995. During those years,
we have actively grown into the largest Linux web-hosting platform in the world.
This is a fact that we're proud of, because it means that we can offer you
the best web hosting experience available.
We're stable, we're innovative, and we stay on top of all of the technologies,
which fall under the umbrella of web hosting on Linux.
What is web hosting?
It is the technology that allows you to share web pages you create with people
anywhere in the world. The technology facilitates sharing with millions of people,
or with just a few, whatever you decide. If you are new to the web or you don't have
your own tools to build web pages, that's not a problem. Our web hosting solutions all
offer tools and shortcuts to help you get pages up quickly and easily. And, if you
like to build your own pages, you can do that too!
How does web hosting work?
To help illustrate, consider a common example. Say you have photos you want to share.
You upload your photos to your website, create a page which uses those photos, and then
supply your friends or family with the address of that page. That's how web hosting
works in a nutshell. Our tools and shortcuts can help you with each of these steps.
How is web hosting different from my ISP?
An Internet service provider (ISP) is the entity by which you connect to the Internet.
When connected, your ISP allows you to use a web browser to visit other websites.
Occasionally an ISP will also provide rudimentary web hosting features, such as
providing you with an email address "@" (at) some-address.com. Web hosting is different.
It provides you with a robust set of features and a place to put your own website that
can be accessed by anyone that you want to allow, any time of the day or night, from
anywhere in the world.
Why use Linux-based systems?
Linux is very prevalent, very powerful, and most important very stable and reliable.
Linux is an operating system that has been maturing over many, many years with the
input of thousands of programmers. It's gained such wide popularity because of the
open nature of its ongoing development. In the Linux world, when bugs or
vulnerabilities are discovered, (as they are in all competing systems)
they are quickly repaired and the repairs efficiently and inexpensively get
propagated, so costs do not get passed on to users. Contrast this with other
operating systems using different development strategies, which result in users
having to pay for their operating systems again and again when bug fixes are
introduced to warrant a new release. Linux is simply better! It is pretty much
invisible to the average webmaster. But, it's comforting for anyone to know that
his or her website sits on an architecture that is
fast, powerful and actively maintained.
Who needs scalability?
We support millions of web sites, with tremendous daily visitor volumes and hits.
That means simultaneous Internet activities can take place here, handling visitor
traffic with ease. You won’t experience any slowdowns while accessing your web site.
And you’ll notice the system is always up and running, too. Keynote and other industry
reports rate our performance as top notch.
Where are the operating systems?
Our operations are based in Los Angeles, California. We have banks of computer servers
in the operations center that are all dedicated to serving your web pages quickly and
reliably. Our architecture provides a level of redundancy and special mitigation against
malicious attacks that you would otherwise have to pay thousands of dollars to achieve.
And, because Los Angeles has one of the best, centralized telecom networks, you get
amazing service performance. In fact, if you were allowed access to the highly secure
location, you would be amazed to learn of the other well known brands that also
occupy the facility.
