Benefits of the Cloud & SSD Disk + the simplicity of Shared Hosting & cPanel
Cloud Hosting has become extremely popular over the past few years. This very site is running on our Startec Cloud Hosting, and you can see how well it performs.
The main concept of cloud hosting is “Divide and Rule” – the resources required for maintaining your website are spread across a cluster of servers that work together, termed as “the cloud”. This redundancy greatly reduces chances of any downtime due to server malfunction.

Cloud hosting is the latest form of hosting that has become extremely popular over the past few years. The main concept of cloud hosting is ‘Divide and Rule’ the resources required for maintaining your website are spread across a cluster of servers that work together, termed as ‘the cloud’. This greatly reduces chances of any downtimes in case of a server malfunction.
When a website is hosted on shared hosting, the website is placed on the same server as many other sites, ranging from a few to hundreds. Typically in this setup, all domains share resources, such as RAM and CPU from the same server. Cloud hosting, on the other hand, offers nearly unlimited ability to handle high traffic spikes. On Cloud, your website is hosted not only on one but on several servers connected to work as one. Your websites donâ€™t depend on only one Serverâ€“ even if one server is inaccessible, the Data is retrieved and processed by the other available servers with no downtime.
Our cloud hosting offers high reliability. Cloud Sites automatically distributes three mirrored copies of your data across multiple devices to ensure safety and protection. The website is hosted on a virtual partition which draws its resources, such as disk space, from an extensive network of underlying physical servers.
Dedicated IP is available at an additional cost, and will only be approved if an acceptable reason is provided.
Each Cloud Hosting package comes with a free Lets Encrypt SSL certificate. If you require a more robust SSL certification, you will need to get in touch with our support team and we will help you with installation.
Varnish Cache is a powerful web application accelerator that can speed up a website by up to 1000 percent. Varnish is typically used for content heavy dynamic websites. It is used by high-profile, high-traffic websites including Wikipedia, online newspaper sites such as The New York Times, The Guardian, The Hindu, Corriere della Sera, social media and content sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo, and Tumblr. Of the Top 10K sites in the web, around a tenth use this software.
Solid State Disks are far faster than standard hard disks. As such, with your site on cloud hosting with SSD, you’ll not only benefit from superior caching and cloud performance, but additional performance improvements due to the hardware your site is stored on.
We provide ‘Quick Install’ which is accessible from your cPanel. Quick Install allows you to plug and play various scripts like WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, shopping carts like Zencart, Magento and various other billing, social networking, support and chat modules.
An upgrade or downgrade is not possible between the plans. However, you can purchase additional RAM and CPU cores as per your requirement. Simply contact our sales department with your request.
You are responsible for your backups and web content. We create our own weekly backups and can restore your web, email and database content from those per your request. However, this is NOT a procedure you should rely on to keep copies of your content safe as we recommend you make your own backups.
You can take a backup from your cPanel or better, use a remote backup solution. Another option is to sign up for one of our maintenance plans, and we’ll keep daily offsite wordpress backups for you.
