Hosting is a service that hosts code of your website and database on a server accessible 24/7. With Canagon, hosting is included in the price of Website+. We take pride in our hosting, our servers use ultra-fast SSD drives, dedicated RAM per client, top class high-speed overseas connectivity and data center peering with giants like Facebook, Google or Amazon, and big telecoms.
Free SSL certificate
We generate all the websites automatically with an SSL certificate to secure communication between the server and your client.
This is absolutely necessary today to ensure secure transfer for private information like credit card transactions, filled forms, and login credentials. SSL certificate prevents eavesdropping if your customer connects to your website from an unsecured network.
SSL certificate will officially help you with SEO according to Google blog.
We use LetsEncrypt to generate SSL certificates.
WordPress, WooCommerce, Divi builder and other plugins, working with images and videos have high demand on server resources. It is important to be hosted on a server with a lot of RAM and excellent connectivity, with setup customized for specific applications and plugins you install.
Our hosting works differently; we monitor servers RAM, disk and CPU consumption, and server’s consumption. When a server is fully utilized according to our well-tested formula, we buy a new one.
We continuously monitor server load and keep it about 40% – 70%, so we always have enough resources left to tackle traffic peaks. Our customers don’t have to worry about instant traffic surge from a viral video or advertising campaign.
Standard hosting environments limit maximum upload sizes for no good reason; it is usual today to upload big files like videos or plugins; our bottom limit is 100M, so you do not have to worry. You can always ask for more.
In the datacenter, protection is executed in several hardware and software layers to minimize the impact on server hardware and the availability of your website.
Hardware and software systems automatically recognize network packet types flowing to the server and block the bad packets. Datacenter uses Arbor and Juniper hardware and other software layers.
Each server individually uses several protection modules like fail2ban, Apache, Nginx modules and our secret sauce.
If you have clients from other continents, or if you are truly global business, you might want to setup CDN service so your static files will be served from the “edge” servers near to your customers. CDN is short for a content delivery network.
Normally you don’t need to install CDN; our servers have great worldwide connectivity; generally, it all depends on the content type, traffic amount, website size and the budget.
To set up a CDN, contact the support please, you will be presented with multiple options that will satisfy any budget and any technical requirements.
We turn on HTTP2 by default.
HTTP2 is a new HTTP protocol, using which your website will be loaded much faster.
It is one of the biggest improvements from 1999 when HTTP1.1 was designed and is used until today.
- Single TCP connection
HTTP2 uses a single TCP connection to ensure effective network resource utilization, it stays open during the whole website session.
Thanks to multiplexing multiple parallel requests can be made in the single connection. With HTTP/1.1 each transfer had to wait until the previous finished.
- Server Push
A server can push additional files to visitor’s cache for later use, it can speed up preloading.
Requests on the server are given order based on dependencies. If one element is dependent on others, they will be loaded in the correct order.
- HTTP2 is binary
Requests are processed faster with fewer errors. Resources are not wasted on translating content to binary, resulting in less load on the server.
- Header compression
HTTP/2 uses HPACK compression. Before, many headers were sent with the same values, and without compression, headers wasted a lot of traffic and loaded slower.
We offer professional help with setting up DNS records. If you host your website and domain with us, DNS records will be automatically set for you, in special cases, our server administrator will set up correct records and test them for you.
Special cases may include:
Third-party DNS records. It is now common for many online services to utilize DNS records for verification purposes and ask users to manually setup verification DNS records.
TXT records used for SPF, DKIM, DMARC, … for use with external services.
Custom MX records for e-mail routing.
Newsletter services like MailChimp, Constant Contact, AWeber, Amazon SES will ask you to set up several of these to function properly and pass antispam tests.
We are very generous with resources and traffic.
Canagon hosting can handle even a million monthly visitors to your website without any extra cost. In USA and Europe, 1000 GB monthly traffic per website is very reasonable and included in the price of the hosting.
In the US and Europe, traffic is very cheap and pricing varies from $1 – $5 per 1 TB = 1000 GB.
In Australia, Oceania, and Asia, traffic is more expensive, costs go up. If you request a server in these locations, we may ask for extra fees over 1000 GB of data transferred, usually 25 USD per TB overage, it never happened before and most of our clients do not use more than 5% – 10% of the allowed traffic. Should it ever happen, we will contact you before any additional charges apply.
Do you have more than million visitors a month? No problem. We will provide you with a special dedicated server with enough CPUs and RAM to handle your traffic load. Managed server hosting by our admins can be as low as $500 USD/month including server costs, but it depends on location, traffic, and other specs, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
There is nothing you can do with sudden unexpected peaks, it is a good thing, it means your business is rolling. If it happens from time to time and it is not on daily basis, our standard high-performance hosting should be enough and no extra charges apply, no need to pay extra for dedicated servers, we have got you covered and it is the whole point of our special setup.
If you have a big advertising campaign coming, expect traffic peak like airing on Shark Tank, live TV or a viral campaign, contact us at least a day before, we will make sure that you are ready and check your caching settings free of charge, for most occasions, this is not needed, we already have sufficient measures in place.
