What makes our Turbo Servers so fast?
Your choice of website host has a direct impact on your sites’ speed and can be the key reason why your site ultimately succeeds or fails. We want to see you succeed! That’s why we invested in our high-speed Turbo Servers, which provide enhanced processing power with unbelievable I/O capacity to help vastly reduce bottlenecks. Our EPYC hardware also uses non-volatile memory express (NVMe) giving our Solid State Drives (SSDs) the ability to reach their full performance potential with ultra-fast read/write speeds.
Solid State Drive (SSD) Speed Boost
Some hosts claim to offer Solid State Drive Hosting but only host your OS or databases, not your files. We use SSD for everything so you get the biggest speed boost possible That’s why our SSD Hosting loads pages faster than our competition and why even we host our site on SSDs. While standard hard drives can only perform hundreds of input/output operations per second, our SSDs perform thousands every second! With no moving parts and no bottlenecks, our SSDs can help your site really fly!
Optimized Site Accelerator
- Turbo Cache – The entire HTML contents of a page is stored by Turbo Cache and served without running PHP for up to 20X faster page loads.
- OPcache/APC – Tests show OPcache can cut PHP page response time in half. OPcache comes pre-configured with PHP 5.5 and later version. APC is available on earlier PHP versions.
- Memcached – Increases the speed of your MySQL databases by keeping your most important data in memory for quicker retrieval.
HTTP/3 provides significantly faster page load times than HTTP because of its ability to deliver more HTTP requests at once and prioritize those requests. HTTP/3 delivers files 20%-30% faster than HTTP.
With our Anycast DNS solution, DNS records are duplicated across Chastain Sites Hosting’s global network ultimately bringing them closer to your visitors. Anycast DNS increases performance when your site is visited by offering quicker response times, lowering latency and increasing redundancy.
