High-Performance Platform

  • SuperCacher For All

    All three layers of the SuperCacher are now available on all our hosting plans. What is more, the most effective caching mechanism – the dynamic cache, is already enabled for all sites by default, which will significantly increase the performance of all websites hosted on our platform.

  • Blazing Fast CDN

    Our in-house built cloud CDN service allows websites to run with blazing speed, caching their content on multiple servers across the globe and delivering it from the closest location to each visitor. It comes with an easy one-click set up, smart defaults and simple on/off management of key features.

  • Faster MYSQL Setup

    We have deployed a new MySQL setup that allows a much higher number of parallel requests to be processed simultaneously. This has a great impact on the effective handling of heavy MySQL queries and leads to a significant drop in the number of slow queries on our infrastructure.

  • Brotli Compression

    Brotli – the next generation compression algorithm, developed by Google as a successor of the popular gzip, is already deployed and enabled on all our Site Tools servers. It speeds up your site by producing up to 20% smaller files than its predecessor.

  • Ultrafast PHP

    We developed a custom PHP implementation that significantly cuts the TTFB (time to first byte) and makes your pages load 30% faster on average. Our new PHP has lower memory usage and allows the server to process a bigger number of queries faster.

Security-First Approach

  • Boost Your Protection With Site Scanner

    Site Scanner is our early warning malware detection system that regularly checks your website for domain blacklisting and other malicious software. Daily reports are available in the interface and immediate notifications are sent if a threat is detected, so you can have a peace of mind for your website’s safety and focus on what’s important – your business.

  • Comprehensive WordPress Security Plugin

    Meet our SG Security plugin – an all-inclusive, free plugin that protects your WordPress website from common hacks, bruteforce attacks, and malware. It’s a must-have for clients and non-clients alike.

  • Geographically Distributed Backups

    We launched geographically distributed backups that minimize the risk of data loss and аllows for fast data recovery even in case of a serious incident that may affect a whole data center.

  • Powerful AI Anti-Bot

    Each hour our AI antibot system blocks between 500 000 and 2 million brute-force attempts across all our servers. We not only prevent potential unauthorized logins, but also manage to save an enormous amount of server resources.

Friendly Client Area & Control Panel

We have built our own account management software to guarantee an outstanding user experience and efficiency of operations on our platform. All our tools aim for maximum simplicity and efficiency that save you time. They follow the same style guide to ensure a unified and consistent experience.

Sophisticated Collaboration Tools

Whether you are an agency building sites, a business client or a blogger, we have made it really easy for you to add experts on your team and manage your workflow. You can use our collaboration tools to have several people work on one site, easily transfer a website to a client, or even resell and manage white-label hosting service.

Exclusive Tools for WordPress

Since the large majority of our clients use WordPress, we have invested extra effort into building automations and management solutions for them such as the WordPress Migrator plugin to help transfer sites easily, the WP Starter to get a theme and essential plugins installed, as well as the staging tool that creates a copy of your live site in a sec and more.

Automatic Scaling on Cloud

We develop unique technologies that facilitate our clients in building and managing their websites. Start with our in-house developed site control panel and go through a wide range of tools for WordPress and other users such as the WordPress Starter, WP Migrator, the staging tool and more.
