No matter if you’re just getting started with a simple blog or creating a business website it’s important to optimize WordPress and your server so it runs much faster and more efficiently. A faster website reduces your site load time and has more page views. Website performance will also influence your rankings in search engines.
Disk space is an amount of storage space that is required for a website. The amount of space depends on the size of your website. If you already have a website you may easily find out how much space you need. In your local disk there’s a folder that contains website files, just right-click on it and select Properties. In case you don’t have a website, it depends on nature of your website, for example, if your website contains 20 – 30 pages, our basic Pluto plan should be enough. Moreover, you can upgrade your plan anytime you want.
Bandwidth or traffic is the amount of information sent over the network, in other words, it is the amount of data transferred through a website at one time. Bandwidth depends on your web page size, the number of pages people visit and the number of visitors. It includes all downloads and uploads, but you don’t have to worry, all our plans (Pluto, Earth, Jupiter, and Sun) offer unlimited bandwidth.
RAM in website hosting represents the resource that temporarily stores data and its command instructions, and passes it along for computation or other purposes. RAM stores data which are repetitive, delivers it at very high speeds. The intensity of RAM memory is proportional to the number of visitors on your website and also, optimization of databases and processes will define how much RAM memory you need. We offer you 128 MB, 1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB or more packages.
An inode is a data structure used to keep information about a file on your web hosting account. The number of inodes equals the total number of files and folders on your account. In the packages we offer, the number of inodes is unlimited.
One of our main advantages is that we provide free basic Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certification. SSL is the most secure technology for establishing an encrypted link between client and server. If you want privacy and data integrity our SSL certificate provides complete communication security. Any important information such as login credentials, credit card numbers or any type of information between a web server and browser, or mail server and mail client are secured from any attacks.
Distributed denial of service (DDoS) is a malicious attempt to make the network unavailable to users, temporarily or indefinitely interrupting or suspending the services of its host connected to the Internet. Attacks are launched from multiple connected devices that are distributed across the Internet. Source attacks arrive from thousands of unique IP addresses and these multi-device barrages are generally hard to deflect, mostly due to the sheer volume of devices involved. On the other hand, the protection can be activated quickly, after you’ve made an order, just give us information about your hosting structure and we’ll make sure you get the most reliable protection from the kind of attacks.
Content Delivery Network is the network of proxy servers distributed globally with multiple data centers. Our main goal is to optimize content delivery with high performance in loading Internet content.
Parked domains are additional domains hosted on your account that display the same website as your primary domain. They are useful if you want to include, for example, site.net to display your primary domain site.com. Also, you may reserve a domain name for future development or advertising purposes.
A subdomain is a domain that is a part of a larger domain. It is the extension of your primary domain name and you can create a subdomain for some part of your website. For example, you may request us to create a subdomain for videos on you site called “videos” that is accessible through video.site.com.
File Transfer Protocol is a client-server protocol that relies on two communication channels between client and server which include transferring files on a computer network. FTP users authenticate themselves with a clear-text sign-in protocol, usually in the form of a username and password. Multiple FTP accounts may be created for one website and we offer that solution in our Earth (5), Jupiter (20) and Sun (unlimited) plan. The main benefit of the FTP transfer in comparison to the web-based file managers is that the FTP connection allows you to upload a whole directory tree at once.
R1Soft is a leading commercial backup software for Web hosting providers. It is known as the fastest, most scalable server backup software for both Windows and Linux platforms in private and public clouds. R1Soft Server Backup Manager gives service providers a flexible, server-friendly solution, their technology enables users to run backups every 15 minutes with no negative impact on server performance.
Varnish Server Cache
A cache is a place to store something temporary in a computing environment. Web browsers use a browser cache to improve performance for frequently accessed web pages. The cache is often the most critical piece of software for a web-based business. It is an open source HTTP engine that can speed up a website by up to 1000 percent by doing exactly what its name implies: caching (or storing) a copy of a web page user visits for the first time. Varnish Cache visits your server once to cache the page while all future requests for the same page will be served by Varnish Cache.
Railgun uses a collection of techniques to accelerate and cache these previously uncacheable web pages so that even when the origin server are consulted, web pages are delivered quickly. And it even works for rapidly changing pages like news sites, or for personalized content. Railgun connections are secured by TLS so that requests sent them cannot be eavesdropped upon. The connection is secured by certificates so that a man-in-the-middle attack is not possible. The TCP connection between CloudFlare and the origin server is kept alive so that it can be reused for subsequent requests eliminating the slow start up of a TCP connection.
SSL vs TLS
TLS (Transport Layer Security) and SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) are protocols that provide data encryption and authentication between server and applications. The closest similarities are found in the first version of TLS (TLS 1.0) and the last version of SSL (SSL 3.0). In fact, TLS v 1.0 is often confused with SSL v 3.1.The differences between SSL and TLS are subtle and extremely technical, but TLS is generally a newer and more refined system. For example, TLS protocol distinguishes between security parameters and state elements for TLS connections, whereas the SSL protocol only considers state elements.
