By utilizing DataCenters in Ireland and the UK, we can provide hosting for our clients by location so that their target market can be accessed as fast as possible. For example, if you are selling mainly to clients in Ireland, then hosting your website there means clients see the site that bit faster. It also allows us to have backup servers in multiple locations so that we have no single point of failure.
When it comes to your bandwidth and disk space usage, going over your limits per month will not mean your site shuts down, unlike other providers.
When comparing our packages to other providers, the most common question we get asked is why our usage limits are sometimes smaller. We do this deliberately to help safeguard our clients and ensure you get the best service.
We closely monitor our servers, but it is easy for sites to be hacked these days because of badly written php/asp scripts or a new found security hole in open-source software being used. When this happens, a clients site usage or disk space can rocket, due to hosting malware or the site being used to send spam or spread viruses.
If you have a hosting account with un-necessarily large usage limits, then this might go un-noticed until your site is blacklisted in search engines or other adverse effects. Our usage limits suit 99% of all clients and enables us to quickly identify any issues.
Also, if you are on shared hosting with another provider, that have large limits, then you could be sharing the server with a site that is a resource hog, making your site’s performance suffer.
Sometimes less is more. We know this from over 18 years in the hosting game.
