Hosting is Slow & Unreliable: No amount of clever SEO will save you

Google always favored fast websites, but soon they will be penalizing slow sites. Once you get an account on a shared host, you are stuck with that speed. You cannot increase it. Not to mention the unreliability that is inherent in a shared environment.

If you are on a shared hosting environment, server load spikes are something that can happen from time to time due to multiple users all sharing the same physical hardware. This is unavoidable.

If you want to speed your WordPress set-up, here are your options:

  1. Get a dedicated computer for your site; Very expensive and requires server administration knowledge
  2. Move to a specialist host for WordPress hosting; Expensive
  3. Get a VPS (Virtual Private Server); Unless it is from a reputable hosting company it offers not much of an speed advantage, and it’s expensive.
  4. Get Purdox and be done with it.

Your own computer on the cloud

We give you your own virtual computer on the cloud. For all practical purposes, they are the same as dedicated computers and they are fast. They virtualise the latest and the best Intel offer. And, you can upgrade your computer to a bigger one, fuss free, when your site gets bigger.

Cloud computing is seen by many as the next wave of information technology for individuals, companies and governments.

In addition to reducing operational costs, cloud technologies have become the basis for radical business innovation and new business models, and for significant improvements in the effectiveness of anyone using information technology – which, these days, increasingly means most of the world.

There are three main players on the Cloud: Amazon, Google and Microsoft. Amazon is the oldest. They basically invented the concept.
