Upgrade to a new hardware platform in the US data center

We are in the process of migrating all servers in our US data center to our new hardware platform. It features the latest Xeon Gold processors, enterprise-grade RAID SSD storage arrays, and optimized 10 Gigabit Ethernet internal network connections.

The new hardware is co-located in a brand-new data center facility situated next to our existing facilities in Boston, MA. This new facility features upgraded network connections, advanced DDoS protection services, improved data security and surveillance.

This hardware upgrade will further improve the stability and performance of our hosting infrastructure. The new platform will provide our clients with even faster and more robust hosting environment for their websites and mailboxes.

HTTP/2 available on all servers

HTTP/2 is a major revision of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol. It provides improved network communication and decreased latency, which makes it much faster than HTTP/1.1. HTTP/2 is supported by all modern browsers.

As of today, HTTP/2 is available on all our servers and hosting plans, including shared servers. It is available only through SSL/HTTPS, as the browsers supporting HTTP/2 do not allow non-encrypted communication over HTTP/2. Therefore, it is advisable all customer sites to have SSL certificates enabled, so that visitors can access them over HTTP/2. All security certificates, including the free Let's Encrypt certificates available in the Control Panel, fully support HTTP/2.

SSH access for all our customers

Today our Software Team added yet another section to the hosting Control Panel interface. It is for managing SSH access to the hosting account, and controlling the user access permissions to various server-side binaries and tools. Now all our customers, including users on shared-hosting servers, can allow SSH access to their hosting accounts.

This new interface increases the overall account and server security, as customers can allow access only to the features they need and plan to use, while leaving the rest disabled.
