Cloud Hosting

The infrastructure used for shared hosting was very well suited for the hosting of static websites, but does not longer meet the requirements of todays demanding business applications.

The diversity of technologies and rich functionality of some applications is well beyond the traditional technical limitations of shared hosting.

We made a simple observation: many of our customers do not have the competence to administer a dedicated server and want a turnkey solution, quick to deploy and offering a level of performance suitable for today's applications.

It was not possible to do this with the shared hosting infrastructure, whose design dates back more than 10 years. So we relied on our “Scaleway cloud” to offer a new generation of web hosting.

Technically, we isolate each hosting on a Scaleway cloud instance, which integrates all the usual technologies of web hosting.

Our hosting solution works with all CMS and PHP frameworks without any changes, and many other technologies and languages will be available soon on this platform.

Because of having dedicated resources, performance does not fluctuate throughout the day, the only limits are the amounts of dedicated processors, memory and storage space.

Storage is done on SSD offering much better performance.
