Static Websites

 

HTML, CSS, Javascript, an application to develop (write) in, and a place to call home is all you need for a site and everything else is just unused dough.

 

Our static website hosting offers a place for your site to call home.

 

Static sites do not rely on PHP or databases to generate their content and as a benefit load quickly and server resources usages are generally low.

Site Builder

 

With our site builder , you can create a site without knowing any HTML, CSS, or javascript and you will not have to know what those are. Move around elements with drag and drop easy. Work with text as if you were using a word processor. Create sites that look great on mobile. Add pictures to pages with a couple clicks. Then preview your changes and publish the site. All without leaving the site builder interface.

 

A site builder takes the place of web design software and runs on our servers so that it is available any where for that quick update you need done.

The site builder publishes directly to your storage area, so you can download the files for your own backups.

    Plesk - Control Panel

    gallery/plesk-staticsites-full-gimp

    We use Plesk for our website hosting control panel. Plesk's user interface is easy to navigate and has built-in help documents on almost every page. Its built-in file manager allows you to upload and edit files, archive folders, rename files / folders, change permissions, etc. Resource usages are also displayed, so you know exactly what you are using.

    gallery/git-logo-1788c

    Ever wondered what code you changed 5 days ago but not could not recall all the changes?  With version control via git, you can see all changes that where commited, who commited the change, and when via your git supported design software.

     

    With Git publishing, you can use a Git repository hosted remotely, like on GitHub , or on our web server and have changes automatically published to your site when you push changes to the repo.

     

    With Git repo (repository) hosting, you can store your Git repos on our web server and start using version control.

    Nginx is a front end web server that connects to the backend web processes such as PHP or Apache. Nginx handles caching of any content to make site loads as fast as possible. Nginx handles requests of static content (javascript files, style sheet files, etc) faster than Apache and thus is configured out of the box to do so.

     

    Nginx is setup to support HTTP/2.

    gallery/nginx

    http/2

    http/2 is a major revision of the protocol that the web is driven by. The last revision, 1.1, was released in 1997! http/2 evolves http by utilizing one connection for every page load instead of one connection for every page element (images, css, js). And with one connection, multiple simultaneous requests can occur. Thus http/2 is more efficient than http/1.1.

    Reliable Servers

    Our servers use enterprise grade hardware from Dell or other well known server manufactures. All server hardware parts are enterprise grade from the power supply to the hard drives and RAID controller. Hard drives are hot swappable, so that if a drive fails it can be changed out without downtime.

     

    Servers are not packed and always have available resources for bursting of site resources.

     

    Services are backed by a 99.9% Monthly Uptime SLA. We publish uptime reports pubically for transparency.

    Rebootless Kernel Updates

    The kernel is the captian of the operating system and everything flows through the Kernel. As such, keeping it updated against security threats is important and so is keeping uptime at the maximum possible levels.

     

    KernelCare allows us to update (patch) the kernel without requiring a reboot of the server. At times the updates provided can arrive faster than from the operating system's developers and those still require a reboot.

    Web Application Firewall (WAF) uses a mix of custom, open source, and commercial rule sets. These rules check content and other web requests for malicious activity.  Rule sets are updated constantly to address the always changing landscape of security.

     

    We use multiple anti-virus / malware scanners with different definition databases from different sources.

    Security and Firewalls

    File System Security

    CageFS isolates a webspace's (your) files from other webspaces using a virtual file system called a chroot or jail. each webspace uses their own CageFS instance. This prevents another account reading your files or even knowing you are on the server. Even different webspaces in your account can not read other webspaces in your account.

     

    SElinux provides security contexts so that users can not access files they should not have access to. This provides an additional file system security separate from CageFS. We keep SElinux enabled, where possible, while other hosts disable it as their standards.

     

    Backups

    All servers are backed up at least once a day using a Continuous Data Protection (CDP) backup system. Backups are kept for 15 days and archived weekly. Databases are backed up every 3 to 4 hours. We also encourge the use of available backup tools to create your own backups.

    WAF and File Scanners

    Server Firewall

    Our server based firewall has automatic intrusion detection (IDS), failed login blocking to stop bruteforce attacks, DoS and DDoS detection and blocking.  We use multiple blacklists to prevent known attackers from even reaching your site(s).
