PacificHost launches free Railgun CDN with its Hosting services
Elk Grove, CA - 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.
