Web Hosting in British Columbia
Written by Shon Taylor
Everyone should know who’s hosting their website and why. It doesn’t matter if you are a business owner with a website, or a developer who supports them.
A good web hosting company complements your marketing efforts. They ensure your website loads quickly for search engines. They also keep your customers happy by providing a fast and stable experience. A good host even keeps your maintenance and support costs down. They reduce unnecessary support calls and avoid sudden upgrades which can result in downtime.
So which hosting company do you choose?
The options are nearly unlimited across North America. It’s difficult to balance the various factors of value, cost, and location.
But if your business is local, you should host in the closest facility possible.
The problem with local hosting companies is they tend to have fewer customers. This equates to smaller infrastructure and higher fees for service.
That’s why we made the switch
FullHost is local, affordable, and offers superior support. They use the latest technologies in their state-of-the-art hosting facility. And it’s located nearby, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Some of their best hosting features include
The traditional shared hosting environment is like having roommates instead of being neighbours. Spikes in traffic to one account take away resources from everyone else on the same server. Thus, affecting your speed and service.
CloudLinux gives each account a set of resources and then insulates accounts with their own environment. This means no matter what’s happening next door, you won’t hear the noise.
Litespeed Web Server
FullHost chooses Litespeed Web Server for its proven track record of increasing the speed and performance. It’s up to 10x better than the traditional process-driven architecture of Apache.
By using event-driven architecture, the Litespeed web server handles an increased number of visitors. This offers better performance with minimal drain on the memory and CPU.
Another reason for Full Host’s superior hosting service is their Anycast DNS configuration. A traditional configuration limits every IP address to one node and one location. But their Anycast DNS configuration allows that IP to be shared across many locations.
What does that mean for you? Anycast’s DNS prioritizes speed by ensuring users are always connected to the closest server. This reduces delays, balances traffic load, allows for horizontal scaling. They can offer British Columbia businesses better speed and a more resilient network.
Very reliable network
FullHost’s robust network of well-maintained data centres make sure that your website runs reliably.
They chose the best network provider so you can enjoy the speed, redundancy, and resiliency that their dedicated network offers.
