Precision incorporated into Web Hosting Service

8 minutes reading


One of the most significant aspects of the web hosting field, from the customer’s perspective, is its vastness and the availability of countless options to pick from when choosing your new Web Hosting Provider. However, in such a diverse area, selecting the right service for your individual needs can become a hideous process of comparing Web Hosting Service providers. To ease this process, we would like to share a few words about what makes HostArmada unique and possibly narrow down your choices.

What makes HostArmada unique

The major factor that distinguishes HostArmada from its competitors is the innovation-driven approach in every service that we offer. While most companies tend to rely on old and morally outdated technologies, we at HostArmada invest our efforts in implementing the latest tech innovations available in the Web Hosting market, ensuring that our customers have access to the most important Web Hosting aspects – Speed, Security, and Stability.

Our top priority is, was, and always will be to take good care of our customers, their websites, and their personal data. With that being said, we have carefully established and grown a specialized team in delivering exceptional customer support over the years. Each customer is treated with deserved respect and every support case is handled promptly as we understand how vital it is to have a reliable Web Hosting partner 24/7/365 at your disposal.

Combining comprehensive technology with outstanding support, HostArmada strives to impose a high standard from the beginning since we understand very well what a professional business relationship is all about.

Technology that Impacts Performance

To have a website that performs outstanding both in front of visitors and Search Engines is no longer a question of well structured and optimized code. Instead, the equation consists of several other variables related mainly to the Web Hosting environment’s technology on which the website is being hosted. We believe that these variables are the three main aspects of the Web Hosting service – Speed, Security, and Stability. That is why we adopted these as the basic standards of every Web Hosting plan that we created.

Website loading Speed

With consideration of improving SEO ranking and customer satisfaction, every website owner aims to shorten their website loading time. Having a fast website decreases the bounce rate, improves conversion, and increases the time spent, which translates into a better customer experience across all the website pages.  To provide the foundation of fast loading websites, we have thoroughly configured our servers with the hosting field’s predominant technologies.

  • Native SSD StorageThe speed gain is unquestionable, and if performance is your top priority, you should always aim to have your website hosted on a server powered by SSD-based storage.
  • Redundant Network – Ensuring your website’s web availability is what makes it always open for new visitors. To utilize the stability and speed that our infrastructure offers, we maintain a high-speed, redundant network that connects visitors to the websites hosted on our services with very low latency.
  • Latest AMD & Intel CPUs – Every website visit triggers a process for your Web Hosting account. Having a reliable CPU ensures high efficiency and stability.
  • Stable CentOS – We are utilizing a stable Operating System in CentOS’s face across all our servers. Regularly updated, it ensures the outstanding performance of all components.
  • Latest cPanel The most powerful and widely used hosting control panel in the world. The user-friendliness it brings enables you to quickly handle any hosting-related tasks so that you can put more time and effort into what’s really important for you – your website. In contrast, we handle all the technical aspects of the service!
  • LiteSpeed & NGINX Web Servers – For our starting plans, we have chosen NGINX since it offers a significant improvement over the Apache webserver. On the other hand, if the loading speed is what you are looking for, we also offer Litespeed on our top Shared Hosting plan. Litespeed is a complete drop-in replacement of the Apache Web Server most people are used to. Not only is it compatible with the most widely known and utilized Apache modules, but in addition to that, it increases the speed of the websites using it by almost 10 times, outperforming Apache, Nginx, and even Varnish!
  • Latest PHP & MySQL – These two services are the core of nearly every website, and our customers can be sure that their websites will benefit from the latest stable versions of these services.

Website Security

The security and reliability of the Web Hosting environment are also our primary concern. No one wants to see their website compromised or inaccessible as this lowers the visitors’ trust rate. To ensure top-notch security and to guarantee ultimate uptime, we have implemented proven practices and technologies across all the Web Hosting solutions that we offer.

  • Advanced Network Firewall and WAF – Every Web Hosting package comes with a pre-configured and fully functional Network Firewall, working in close relation with the Web Application Firewall. This setup lowers the risk of a website being defaced due to security holes in its code and functionality.
  • Live Security Events Monitoring – All our servers are equipped with a module for live monitoring of undergoing attacks. This allows us to understand the attack vector better so we can further develop our security solutions.
  • DDoS Protection Service – Although part of our Firewalls, we feel obligated to mention that our Shared Hosting solutions are all covered by a DDoS protection layer absolutely free of charge.
  • Malware Scanning – Having a protected website does not mean that it is free from malware. Sometimes you might install a module or a plugin that already has some malware injected in it. For that reason, all our Shared Hosting plans are being automatically scanned every week for potential malware.
  • Proactive Zero-day attack detection – The proactive security analyzes the behavior of the script during its execution. If the script execution is evaluated malicious, then the script’s file is being quarantined, preventing its further execution.
  • OS Patch Management Feature – We apply security patches to the OS of the server, the PHP versions, and other software products without the need for the server being rebooted. Thus, reducing the downtime of the websites hosted on our server to a minimum and at the same time increasing the security of the environment dramatically.
  • Connections Level Limits – It allows for the number of requests per second from a single IP address to be limited to a reasonable amount, thus eliminating the DoS attack’s risk to virtually none.

Uniting all these components together results in substantive protection from the most common threats and attacks. By keeping our server environment healthy, we ensure your website is in its best condition.
