PacificHost launches free Railgun CDN with its Hosting services
Posted by Rex Boyd on 17 April 2013 02:14 PM

PacificHost, a leading provider of Linux-based cPanel hosting solutions for social media and video sharing websites recently announced the addition of Railgun to its shared and reseller hosting services. Railgun works in conjunction with the CloudFlare CDN to cache both static and dynamic content; this has been shown to provide a 143% improvement in HTML load times.

In May of 2011, PacificHost added the CloudFlare CDN to its line of hosting products. This technology helped to increase website security, and help speed up static content. Despite caching up to 65% of a website, CloudFlare was unable cache the dynamic content. Railgun solves that problem by efficiently compressing dynamic content, and serving that in conjunction with the static HTML files. This in turn, reduces latency by allowing the visitor to retrieve all the content from the nearest CloudFlare datacenter.

 “CloudFlare has been a great addition to our hosting service, and when CloudFlare chose us to join their exclusive partner program for Railgun, we were ecstatic. A large majority of our customers run social media and video based websites, and this will not only help to deliver faster page times, but help make our customer’s websites more secure with their integrated security and analytics programs ,” said Thomas Perry, President and Founder of PacificHost.

In addition to offering CloudFlare for free, the company has chosen to include Railgun for free in its line-up of hosting products. PacificHost customers can activate Railgun by logging into their cPanel account, and clicking on the “CloudFlare” icon.

The company also announced that it will be tuning its server configurations for new shared and reseller servers, beginning in early May. These changes will include 32GB of DDR3 RAM, 2 Gigabit Ethernet cards, 12TB of space across Enterprise Sata drives, running on Hardware Raid 10. The new hardware is expected to increase speed and server capacity for PacificHost’s expanding video hosting market.

About CloudFlare

Powering thousands of websites, CloudFlare's free service accelerates performance, protects against attacks, and gets smarter as its community expands.

PacificHost is proud to announce the release of Breezi – a new robust visual website builder – now available to customers through cPanel. The plugin gives customers the ability to create, design and manage a fully customizable, mobile optimized website with up to three pages for free.

“We saw a massive need in the web hosting space for a proper website builder solution,” says Chris Anderson, Co-founder of Breezi. “Customers sign up for a hosting account, and the next step is often to create a website. But many customers don’t know how, and have become increasingly frustrated with the tools available through their cPanel accounts.”

Website builders available for web hosts to offer customers through the control panel have traditionally been too restrictive and difficult to use, resulting in low adoption and disappointed customers. "When we were invited to test drive Breezi, we knew instantly this is something our customers would love,” said Thomas Perry, Founder of PacificHost. “The ability to design elegant, professional and beautiful websites has always been a rarity amongst website builders. However with Breezi, the only limitation is users' creativity & imagination. We're thrilled to be able to provide Breezi to all our hosting customers, and look forward to a prosperous relationship with Breezi.”

We love incorporating new features into our hosting service to enrich our product offering and provide more value to our customer’s. Breezi is also available to PacificHost resellers who can use it to make their hosting product more competitive as well.

Once a hosting company installs the simple plugin, customers can click the Breezi icon from their cPanel account and easily create a new website for free. They first select a professionally designed starting point theme, and then are taken into the online visual website editor. From there, content can be added through a library of apps, and the customer can modify the design and page layouts exactly how they’d like, with granular control over every aspect of the look and feel of their website.

Each website is mobile optimized automatically. When a customer is ready to publish their website, there’s a simple FTP Syncing feature that syncs their website files over to a newly generated FTP user on their hosting account. The customer can log into their Breezi account anytime, directly through the cPanel plugin icon. For customers that want to take their websites to the next level, there’s a Pro account upgrade option with pay-as-you-go billing at $1/hour of usage, or $15 per month.

PacificHost moves to CloudLinux platform on all Shared Hosting services
Posted by Rex Boyd on 13 September 2011 05:00 PM
CloudLinux is an operating system that integrates with a variety of service types. It is is designed to allow for user isolation in a shared hosting environment. This allows for a more efficient use of server resources. Additionally, PacificHost added Memcached which is a distributed memory object caching system. This speeds up dynamic web applications by alleviating database load.

The CloudLinux software effectively creates a virtual environment for every hosting account. By doing this it prevents any specific user from using all the server resources at any one time. Hosting companies without such an isolation software can see individual accounts slowing down or even taking an entire server offline.

"These additions to our shared hosting service will help further our stability and reliability among all of our servces. CloudLinux helps us to prevent individual users from affecting other users on the server while Memcaches helps us to distribute load among the servers for a faster experience. We are always looking for ways to improve our hosting service and these additions only help to further our reliability and reputation already known in the hosting industry.” said PacificHost President & CEO, Thomas Perry.

In addition to the release of CloudLinux and Memcached on shared servers, PacificHost recently added NginX to all new VPS servers. NginX is a lightweight web server that replaces Apache as the primary HTTP server. NginX is known for its high performance, stability and low resource consumption. There is no added cost to PacificHost customers for NginX, however LiteSpeed licenses are still available to all customers.
