Solar Host is powered from the AISO data-center in sunny California. The data center itself has an environmentally friendly design using recycled and environmentally friendly materials. It is completely steel framed with no wood at all except for the door frames on the interior of the building. The walls are over 12 inches thick and filled with insulation that has recycled content.
The entire infrastructure was purpose built to use the lowest amount of energy possible using the latest "green design" techniques - no other data center can do what they do without starting from scratch. The center even uses solar tubes to bring in natural sunlight which eliminates the use for conventional lighting during the day. The cooling systems are air and water cooled which reduces the amount of electricity needed for greedy refrigeration units.
We host on multiple servers, this helps us perform maintenance without disrupting your site, and it helps keep costs low. For 'shared hosting plans' it is hard to say exactly what server your hosting will be on, but we can make this promise. The minimum spec server we host comprises:
- Intel Xeon* or AMD Opteron* CPU 2.80GHz Quad-Core
- 2048MB RAM
- 120GB Drives
- 1000GB Bandwidth
- 5 IP's
As you can see these are extremely high power systems, along with our technical expertise and maintenance programs. We constantly monitor the server load and have balancing software to ensure the maximum performance is always being delivered. Likewise when demand is low we are able to power down elements of the server system to save power consumption.
We host Red Hat Linux operating systems: the most stable on the market. To discover more about the current installation of MySQL, PHP, Apache and more - please visit our support centre FAQ.
We have cPanel control software bringing you the easiest to use and most accurate administration package available...
