Hosting FAQs

Frequently Asked Hosting Questions

What is a VPS?

VPS stands for Virtual Private Server and it is a significant upgrade from traditional shared hosting. Most standard hosting plans share their server resources amongst many customers which increases the server load and can result in slower response times for your web pages. On a VPS, server resources are dedicated to the sites contained on the server and are not shared with anyone else. The end-result is faster page loading and a better visitor experience.

Where are the servers located?

The primary server is located in Vancouver, British Columbia. All website backups are sent to an alternate server in Toronto, Ontario for geographic isolation.

The internet is fast, but distance does make a difference. With servers located geographically close to your target audience, website performance (page load times) will be better, resulting in a better user experience for your users.

How can I benefit from a VPS?

A VPS will provide better performance than most traditional shared hosting plans. This will improve your visitor’s experience and may result in better rankings with Google.

Most “budget” hosting is shared hosting which means your web resources are being shared amongst possibly hundreds or thousands of other customer’s websites. This can cause your website to load slowly, especially during peak times.

What is the advantage of hosting with Freshworks?

By hosting your website through Freshworks Web Design, you are getting VPS performance for a fraction of the cost (most VPS hosting plans start around $40.00 / month). Additionally, Freshworks Web Design handles your setup, configuration, performance tuning and we monitor the service to ensure any issues are addressed as quickly as possible.

Freshworks hosting also includes a LiteSpeed server license and setup for optimal web performance, a free SSL certificate, automated backups and advanced security provided by Immunify360.

What is LiteSpeed caching?

LiteSpeed is a proprietary server technology that improves upon the standard Apache server by employing a streamlined event-driven architecture, capable of handling thousands of concurrent clients with minimal memory consumption and CPU usage.

LiteSpeed is included and configured for all Freshworks hosting accounts and it has noticeably improved website performance.
