Web hosting advantages

Our web hosting services come with the following advantages.

High-performance web server: LiteSpeed

LiteSpeed Web Server (LSWS) is a proprietary web server, the fourth most popular web server software. In August 2019 it was estimated that 4.7% of the world's websites use LiteSpeed. The software uses same format configuration as Apache and offers most of the features of Apache.

LiteSpeed offers a faster loading rate for your website.

High performance is achieved by a very efficient method of serving static content (images, CSS, JavaScript etc.), faster execution of PHP code, support for modern protocols content serving and compression.

LiteSpeed is included free of charge with all packages of web hosting, Magento hosting, Premium hosting and is available for a fee with the packages from Cloud Managed VPS.

Web hosting service protected by BitNinja

The threat of computer attacks on websites is ubiquitous. Customers of web hosting services must periodically update their websites to resolve security vulnerabilities. We welcome customers with an additional layer of security provided by BitNinja software.

BitNinja is a security tool already installed and configured on Hosterion servers (shared web hosting, Magento web hosting and Premium web hosting). This system stops many of the attackers trying to gain access to modify your website.

Security measures automatically applied to your web hosting account include:

  • WAF (Web Application Firewall) detects and prevents attacks of SQL injection, directory traversal, XSS, remote file inclusion, code injection, on-site and cross-site request forgery, buffer overflow, unvalidated file upload
  • IDS (Intrusion Detection System)
  • automatic detection and removal of malware
  • blocking access for low-reputation IPs (using a global IP database)
  • preventing the exploitation of vulnerabilities in known systems (Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, etc.)
  • protection against DOS and DDOS attacks
  • many other mechanisms for protecting your web hosting account that use artificial intelligence including

Anycast DNS hosting

Anycast DNS hosting To get a faster load time for your website and to have a more cyber-attacks resilient DNS service we're including anycast DNS hosting for free with all web hosting services Hosterion offers. Read more about anycast DNS hosting.

Free SSL Certificates

We offer free SSL certificates for any domain that we host. No matter how many domains you have or how many hosting package you choose. Install certificates through a single click from the control panel. Read more about SSL certificates.

Web hosting on IPv6

Hosterion Infrastructure is ready for the future: it works on both the classic IPv4 and IPv6. The IPv4 standard came in the 1970s. No wonder this version has reached its limits, and a new version has to be created that includes enough numbers (IP addresses) to deal with the multitude of devices connected to the internet. Web hosting packages include a dedicated IPv6 address at no additional cost, and IPv4 connectivity is still available.

Free migration* of web hosting accounts

If you already have a website hosted at another provider we'll transfer it at no additional cost and without downtime. We prepare and test the transfer, we choose together a good time of day or night, to make the transfer.

*Migrating web hosting accounts is free in case of full cPanel account transfers to newly created cPanel account, through Full Backup (Full Backup function must be active, you must have enough space to generate a full backup and full access to the DNS zone). If the previous provider does not use cPanel or does not have Full Backup function active, a manual migration will have to be done, which is usually not free. Also, migrations from the cPanel account to the addon domain or addon domain to the addon domain are not free. We will evaluate each particular situation and inform you about the transfer method and the costs.

99,9% Uptime

We guarantee a 99.9% availability per year to your website.

Our technicians offer support by email or phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year (in some years even more). Contact us at any time of day or night.
