Hosting solutions

Platform Specific Features

WordPress

If you run WordPress, you’ll want to take advantage of our bespoke WordPress platform. We don’t repackage standard shared hosting as ‘WordPress Hosting’; we’ve gone above and beyond to create a completely separate managed platform. It’s optimised specifically for WordPress speed and security with lightning fast caching, MySQL resource handling, and automatic WordPress core updates all backed by fantastic hardware and support.

Automatic WordPress updates
Always forget to update WordPress or simply have too many installs? Don’t worry, we automatically update your core WordPress installs with the latest security fixes and new features as soon as they’re released.

Built-in plugin monitoring
Our systems are always running checks to identify any potentially abusive plugins and automatically block any that may put your website at risk or have a significant impact on performance.

Special Cache
This unique plugin enhances your website caching for consistently quick loading speeds. It works automatically, but you can manage it yourself directly from your WordPress Dashboard if you prefer.

Windows

When you’re building websites using Windows languages, technologies, and software, you need a platform that can handle the workload. We’ve designed a solid Windows platform to meet all your web hosting needs.

Always up to date
We use only the latest Windows hosting technology for our platform to ensure you’re always benefiting from the latest features and improvements. Many hosts avoid this because of the resources and costs involved, but we believe in giving you the best for your website.

Optimised IIS performance
Rather than using Windows as-is, we’ve tweaked IIS to give you enhanced website performance, ensuring better page speeds, happier visitors, and support for all ASP and ASP.NET languages from 2.0 onwards.

Linux

Our high-powered Linux platform is ideal for running everything from Joomla! to Magento, so if you like your software you’ll love this platform. If you’re not sure what kind of hosting you need or what kind of website you want, Linux is the best choice. It’s fantastic out of the box, but we’ve made it even better.

Optimised Apache with NGINX Edge Cache
We’ve fine-tuned Linux’s Apache and created our own superfast caching system so your website always runs at its best. It’s the perfect foundation to grow your website.

70+ one-click installs
Choose from a wide range of powerful free software titles and install them in seconds. With everything from invoicing to project management covered, you can install as many as you like as use them as much as you want. You can also install the world’s most popular content management systems and ecommerce software to create feature-rich websites at no extra cost.

Multiple Programming Languages
Our Linux platform allows you to make use of 6 different versions of PHP, ensuring greater flexibility for your website, frameworks, and scripts.

Hosting Technology & Hardware

Shared hosting with a difference

Unlike with other web hosts, your website isn’t tied to one single server but makes use of a whole platform, meaning that you get incredible reliability and speed at an unbelievably low price. Traditional shared hosting performance is subject to how much traffic you get and what other users are doing, but our platforms are load-balanced and automatically scale to meet resource demands at no extra cost to you. Your website stays online and runs fast so you can concentrate on your business.

Key features

  • Choose from three powerful platforms: Linux, WordPress, or Windows
  • Autoscaling and load-balanced
  • Enhanced speed and security
  • 100% SSD (solid state drive) storage
  • IPv6 enabled
  • Secure, state-of-the-art UK data centre
  • Friendly UK support

Data centre & hardware

Our intelligent and advanced UK data centre is kitted out with premium hardware and the latest and greatest security and environmental technologies. With technicians onsite 24/7 every day of the year and a resilient national network for ultimate reliability, you can rest assured that your websites are safe with us.

We’ve invested heavily in our hardware to ensure optimal performance and a faultless design with no single point of failure. Each server has Dual Intel Xeon CPU E5-2640 v3 octa-core processors with hyper-threading for 32 logical cores and 64GB DDR4 RAM.  All MySQL and MSSQL databases are hosted on dedicated 32 core servers with 128GB RAM and full SSD storage.

We’ve developed an incredibly resilient high performance storage platform utilising 100% SSD storage arrays in a RAID 10 configuration, with battery-backed hardware RAID cards. Storage arrays are then replicated across multiple servers so in the highly unlikely event that disks, arrays or entire servers fail there will be no downtime or impact to your site. We take daily data backups, which are stored at a secured offsite facility. We also run our own bespoke Web Application Firewall that continually monitors and filters out threatening requests before they can even target your website.

Key Features

UNLIMITED HOSTING

Host Unlimited Websites

When we say ‘unlimited’, we mean unlimited.

That includes unlimited websites, SSD storage, bandwidth, SSL certificates. You can have any number of hefty 1 GB MySQL databases and 10 GB mailboxes.

Choose your platform: Linux, or Windows.

OUR PLATFORM

Autoscaling Cloud Platform

All our platforms are load balancing and autoscaling. Instead of relying on just one or two servers, each website you host accesses a whole platform’s resources with automatic scaling to meet your needs.

No single point of failure means optimal reliability 24/7.

POWERFUL HARDWARE

100% SSD Storage

With Zarapress you get full, unlimited SSD web space at no extra cost. This applies across both Windows & Linux platforms. Our entire storage platform is SSD, not just the cache.

This ensures super-fast, search engine friendly websites from the word ‘go’.

MOVE YOUR DATA EASILY

Migrate Automatically to Us

The Zarapress Migration Centre automates the import of websites, databases and email from cPanel and most large UK hosts. You choose what you want to move over, and it’s replicated exactly.

There’s no downtime, and no risk to your data.

UNLIMITED HTTPS

Unlimited FREE SSL Certificates

SSL is everywhere so it makes sense to offer your customers wildcard SSL certificates at no cost. Site visitors benefit from secure, encrypted browsing with the ‘https://’ prefix and browser padlock.

Extended Validation certificates are also available at an extra cost.
