Hostpoint enables parallel operation of Nginx and Apache in shared hosting
Hostpoint customers now have the option of running their websites using the powerful, high-performance Nginx web server in shared hosting. As a leading and innovative hosting company, Hostpoint also enables the use of Nginx and Apache web servers in parallel. Customers can decide which web server to use for each website they create.
Since Hostpoint was founded in 2001, shared hosting offers have been based on the widely used web servers of the Apache Software Foundation. Hostpoint customers with a Managed Flex Server have already been able to benefit from the performance advantages of Nginx web servers following its launch in 2019. Hostpoint is now expanding its product range and also making it possible to use Nginx in the shared hosting models "Smart Web hosting" and "Business Web hosting".
With shared hosting, Hostpoint customers have the option of using both leading web server technologies, Nginx and Apache, in parallel as part of the same web hosting account. Customers don't have to decide on one web server for their entire hosting, but can choose one of the two web servers for each website. Various configuration options are available for both web servers, which are easy to adjust on the Hostpoint Control Panel.
Intelligent caching and high performance lead to SEO advantages
The main benefits of Nginx web servers are their intelligent caching and strong performance. In addition to Nginx caching, however, static websites can also be run with Nginx. Nginx is particularly well suited for websites with high visitor traffic. Thanks to extremely fast loading times, using an Nginx web server can also help to optimize your search engine ranking (SEO).
The open source web server Nginx has gained more and more market share in recent years and is almost neck and neck with long-term market leader Apache. Depending on the statistical source, it even overtook Apache some time ago.
The use of Nginx and Apache web servers in parallel is available in the product range models "Smart Web hosting" (CHF 14.90 per month) and "Business Web hosting" (CHF 24.90 per month). Both offers can be tested free of charge for 30 days.
All web hosting now also with 100% SSD (NVMe)
As a leading and innovative hosting provider, Hostpoint is constantly working on upgrading performance and expanding its web hosting product range. In addition to the newly introduced parallel availability of Nginx and Apache in shared hosting, all hosting customers will benefit from even better speeds in the storage infrastructure from now on. Hostpoint is now using 100% NVMe-based solid state disks (SSD) for website data and database queries. This guarantees even better performance and high availability.
