Handcrafted Solutions for 99.99% Uptime
We have always been pioneers in inventing our own advanced web hosting security solutions. They have minimized the downtime risk to levels which companies, relying on the available mass solutions, could never achieve.
Great technology made even better by us!
Linux Containers (LXC)
Our platform is built on top of the cutting edge LXC (Linux containers) technology. We have chosen to use LXC, because it is extremely resource efficient, highly elastic and provides great stability in times of unexpected traffic spikes. While building our own implementation of the LXC, our talented DevOps have written multiple Linux Kernel patches, which we are proud to see now incorporated in the official Linux Kernel code itself.
Prevents and fixes issues without delay.
Pro-active Server Monitoring
Our in-house created server monitoring is another piece of art of the SiteGround DevOps team. It is extremely lightweight and can check the server status far more often than standard monitoring systems. It not only detects current issues and fixes them immediately, but is also able to foresee upcoming problems and to take actions to prevent them.
For the fastest data recovery whenever needed!
Own Backup System
Two things are important for a good backup system: to create the backups with minimal resource usage and to allow for fast restore in times of need. The currently existing and massively used backup solutions did not perform to our high standards, and that is why in 2015 we have launched our own backup system, which has cut the restore time needed by more than half.
No single account can affect the others
Secure Account Isolation
This was one of the first technological innovations SiteGround introduced back in 2008. We were the first to come up with an efficient CHROOT account isolation of accounts on shared servers at a time, when other hosts thought this was not possible. On our machines we still have one of the best security isolations in the industry.
