Space2host servers are housed in state-of-the art data centers located in seven countries. Each data center has 100Gbps of uplink where each cloud instance is powered by 500Mbits/s.
The vendor uses MaxIOPS storage and LiteSpeed technology on its next generation servers for faster loading of the websites it hosts. In addition, Space2host uses a range of caching techniques which ensure that, in addition to increasing loading speeds, the websites they host are better able to absorb peak loads.
Space2host uses the CloudLinux operating system to ensure that its servers have the capacity for maximum load balancing. Moreover, its servers use isolated containers technology to deliver better security to its clients’ websites.
Its virtual servers are connected to high speed network channels with static IP and use both Linux and Windows OS platforms. With these two platforms, users have the option to install Linux CentOS, Redhat, Ubuntu, Debian, Windows Server 2008, and other supported operating systems.
Space2host offers daily and weekly backups as part of its SQL server solution and weekly snapshot backups for its cloud server solutions. The vendor also offers backup services for its WordPress hosting, but does not say whether they are performed on a daily or weekly basis.
The vendor’s other hosting solutions do not include a backup solution. All the same, it is important to note that Space2host does not avail its backups to its customers on a per-user basis.
Space2host offers SSL certificates as a separate solution that users can buy. It offers SSL certificates from popular provider, Comodo. Available certificates include PositiveSSL and EVSSL.
