The CloudLinux environment, used for our shared web hosting, is optimized to guarantee good performance, high reliability and increased security.

CloudLinux OS

The CloudLinux operating system is a commercial Linux distribution intended for the shared web hosting sector, and is based on CentOS. The CentOS operating system is specially designed to meet the growing needs of a site. Thanks to its ability to isolate and control resource peaks, CloudLinux offers superior site availability.

 

Complete SSD Solution

The operating system (OS), your files and your databases are stored on solid state drives (SSD), which guarantees maximum read and write performance throughout your accommodation. Up to 10X more performance with SSD, compared to standard drives.

 

RAID 10 : Efficient and Reassuring

RAID 10 is a combination of RAID 1 and RAID 0, also known as RAID 1+0.

RAID 1 is a set of 2 hard drives, one of which is used as a mirror to secure the stored data. This data redundancy system has a high fault tolerance and is therefore suitable for storing sensitive data.

RAID 0 is a system that distributes the information stored on several hard disks (logical units), the read and write time is then accelerated.

 

Balanced Number of Accounts on Each Server

 

Anycast DNS

DNS records are duplicated on the A2 Hosting global network, bringing them closer to your visitors. Anycast DNS increases performance when your site is visited by providing faster response times, reducing latency and increasing redundancy.

 

Reinforced DDoS Protection

The enhanced DDoS protection solution offers large-scale capacity, instant attack detection and rapid mitigation. While DDoS attacks can be complicated and difficult to mitigate, the solution improves the likelihood that your site will stay online even during the most sophisticated DDoS attacks.

 

24/7 Network Monitoring

 

Quadruple Redundant Network at 10 GB/s
