Our dedicated server is hosted by Bluehost. Bluehost was founded in 2003 with one goal: to make a better hosting company. Built on open source technology, they have since grown to become one of the world's largest providers of cloud-based online solutions. Operating beneath the Wasatch Mountains in Utah, over 700 employees are pushing boundaries to deliver the promise of the internet to more people than ever.
What's new @ Bluehost!
Over the past year we've worked to enhance our customer service, revolutionize our technology, and improve our products. Here are some highlights of what we're doing to ensure you enjoy the next generation of hosting services today.
Improved Spam and DDoS protection
As the internet grows, so do attacks, malware, and spam. DDoS attacks have been on the rise (you might have noticed), so we installed new industrial strength DDoS protection that helps prevent and mitigate attacks. We also saw an increase in spam sent by some customers, so we are leveraging new tools to better stop spam originating from our servers. This will reduce the likelihood of your server being blacklisted because of someone else's actions.
Overhauled Network Infrastructure
By designing and building our own servers, we ensure our technology is always cutting edge. We invested in a slew of new features to improve the performance and reliability of every hosting account. New 10GB switches with built in core and power redundancy across the network, we're upgrading servers to now utilize screaming fast 32-core processors, 32GB memory, SSD storage and increased space, and much more.
VPS and Dedicated Services
We've designed our brand new servers from the ground up to be blazing fast and unbelievably easy to use. Breakthrough cloud technology and software now lets every Bluehost customer easily upgrade and take advantage of more powerful, dedicated resources, with great features like:
- Instant provisioning in seconds instead of hours or days
- Seamless, automated upgrades from shared hosting accounts
- Redesigned cPanel and multi-account management
