February Hosting Update

CDN Fully Deployed! (End of Jan)
Our Content Delivery Network will cache website files at data centres around the world. By having copies of your site at the network edge, it means that sites will load faster in countries outside the UK. 
It also adds an extra level of reliability: visitors’ requests will have fewer network ‘hops’ to go through, so in the event of an internet disruption they’re more likely to arrive at a working website.
Same features as paid CDNs
We also include a powerful Website Acceleration Suite, which optimises sites to reduce their bandwidth. This  will help them load faster, wherever they are in the world. It does this by optimising images and code, with over 40 options to improve your site speed. 
Of course, not everyone wants to experiment with all these features, so we’ve created a safe and simple preset: ‘One-Click Optimisation‘. We encourage you to make a note of your pagespeed score – before and after turning it on.

Having a faster site will make your users – especially mobile users – more engaged with the site. It also has search engine performance benefits, and reduces data costs to both individuals and the environment.

To get the same options on a Cloudflare CDN, you’d have to pay for their £20/month package. That’s great value!

You can start using the CDN now by managing hosting in your user panel. 

The new File Manager that we released in January is proving very popular.

It’s designed to be a user-friendly and attractive, in line with the rest of our user panel. You can carry out tasks like editing, compression, unzipping and even opening files in your web space – everything you need to make site management easy. It includes special features like inbuilt malware scans, disk usage reports and global searches.

You can access the new file manager by Managing a hosting package in our user panel.
