Is your web site at risk for an outage?

At least once or twice a year, some large hosting provider has an outage that causes thousands if not millions of web sites to become unavailable, often for hours at a time. For some, it’s a minor inconvenience that’s brushed off or may even go unnoticed. For businesses that host e-commerce sites, popular news sites, or conduct the majority of their business online, it can mean lost profits and real dollars at stake.

Hosting outages can happen for any number of reasons — human error, acts of nature, faulty equipment, malicious individuals, etc. I know of few hosting providers who haven’t suffered from some kind of outage at one point or another. However, not all hosting solutions are made alike.

The best way to prevent an outage from taking down your web site completely is to build redundancy into your hosting solution. Instead of having a single server host your web site, set up several servers that are physically isolated from each other. Then, even if there’s an outage at location B, locations A and C will still be online and your web site will remain available.

Sound complicated? We’ve got you covered! Our entire hosting infrastructure is fully redundant to ensure your site remains available when you need it. Every site we host for our customers is served by a minimum of two isolated web servers along with distributed storage and database systems.
