Unlike coffee, web hosting should always be predictable. Between our 24x365 support and 99.9% SLA, that's exactly what we are.
You’ve probably already caught the news from our Facebook feed by now, but we wanted to make it official: As of February 9 2014, all Fresh Roasted Hosting webserver nodes have been upgraded to LiteSpeed! This is a free upgrade for all of our existing customers, and directly replaces our previous Apache / Varnish / nginx combinations.
For those of you who don’t know, LiteSpeed is a high-performance webserver. That’s the piece of software that sits on the server and hands out copies of your website. Until now, we’ve used Apache — a very stable and widely-used webserver. Apache was revolutionary when it came out nearly 20 years ago. But just as technology has evolved over the years, so has the way we use our websites.
Long gone are the days of dialing into your ISP, loading a website, and watching static content scroll by. Today’s websites are responsive, dynamically-generated mountains of content that require a faster, more robust back end infrastructure. LiteSpeed is as much as 533% faster than Apache and as much as 67% faster than nginx. That means your pages load faster and more smoothly, which keeps your customers happy and your site visitors coming back.
Just to recap, here’s what makes Fresh Roasted Hosting one of the fastest web hosts you’ll ever encounter:
If you think we were fast before, or if you think your current host is even faster, just wait until you see what our accelerated hosting platform does now!
