The Web Site Acceleration Tools (Node.js, Memcached and Varnish) built into the web hosting Web Site Control Panel, are there to drastically improve your dynamic sites’ loading speed.
They are made to cache the content from your web sites and thus minimize the number of queries to the database server or the application programming interface. This will help your websites load considerably faster than before and will help you attract more happy website visitors, which means decreased bounce rates.
Full scripting support with all our web hosting plans
All our shared hosting packages offer scripting support. You’ll be able to use virtually any PHP or Python–driven application and also take advantage of 3400+ Perl modules supported by each of our Linux–powered servers. Plus, you’ll be able to work with MySQL and even PostgreSQL databases and use the InnoDB storage engine featured in each package. Zend Optimizer, ImageMagick, GD Library and SSI are supported too.
Multiple Data Centers
Always ensure the best web site load speeds for all your site visitors
The data center facility location directly influences your web site’s load speed, therefore, by picking out a facility that’s close to your prospective visitors, you can truly guarantee the nicest Internet browsing experience for them. We provide you with a choice of data centers on as many as three different continents – Steadfast in Chicago, Illinois, USA; Pulsant in Maidenhead, UK, Ficolo in Pori, Finland, Telepoint in Sofia, Bulgaria and Amaze in Sydney, Australia. All of them offer a reliable and risk–free shared hosting environment with a round–the–clock server monitoring service and a 99.9 percent network uptime guarantee.
Your website will be faster with solid–state disks
All new desktop computers and laptop computers boast solid–state disks and this is so for a reason. Solid–state disks have much faster read and write speeds, making everything considerably faster. Precisely the same will be valid for your website if you host it with St8forward Hosting – all the shared hosting servers boast solid–state disks and various web sites hosted with us open much faster than those hosted on ordinary hard disk drives.
And the best part is that you do not have to change, fine–tune or configure anything whatsoever in order to make it open faster.

True Cloud Platform

Your web sites are entirely backed–up with us
We make back–up copies of your site content on a regular basis, so you never ever risk losing your own personal website files, web apps, databases, email messages, etc. due to cyber–thieves attacks or unintended deletions on your end. Furthermore, thanks to the File Manager located in the Web Site Control Panel, you could create manual backups of all your site content whenever you want. Simply indicate and zip the directory(ies) that you wish to back up and our system will save it on your behalf in the location that you’ve indicated.

ModSecurity is a firewall software meant to shield web applications against hacker attacks. We’ve set up the firewall software in such a way as to block all widespread website attacks automatically. By default, ModSecurity is activated for all domain names, but you can easily disable it for any website you would like.
