Hosting services come in all shapes and sizes. But why are some “unlimited” plans so cheap? It’s all about the fine print. When you are paying for a cheap provider that offers “unlimited” everything it is because the fine print says something like “limited to available resources.” What does this mean for you, exactly? Simply put, any number of people that have signed up for this plane will be placed onto the same hosting server, let’s say a thousand; this means that if all of these thousand (yours included) websites received traffic at the same time the server would run excruciatingly slow.
At NewLeaf we make sure that dedicated memory is allocated to our servers alone. We monitor our services and processes that are running on the server and make sure that there are always ample resources available to allow your website to load lightning fast.
We also include a very powerful CDN service called CloudFlare and a robust security service called Dome9. Both of these services help ensure that your webpage loads quickly and reliably, and that your site is protected from potential hackers.
If your site received a lot of traffic or you are hosting a service that streams content such as weekly podcasts, then this might be the right solution for you. Talk to our project manager today to see what the best hosting option is for your situation.

A CDN or Content Delivery Network is a specialized service that takes your website and “serves” the content from a more localized server. Say your physical server is in Texas – every time a user visits your website from Texas the site may load very quickly but users in New York, Oregon, Hawaii, really anywhere more than a state away from Texas won’t see the same load speed. The physical distance from your user to your server will affect the speed of your website.
A Content Delivery Network is a network of many servers that are evenly spaced out across the globe. This network of servers constantly communicates with your server and downloads the files periodically so that when a user near one of the network servers visits your site, it serves the files from the nearest local network server, resulting in a faster load time for your site!
You might be thinking to yourself, “Well why would anyone want to hack my site?” The most common hacks are not actually carried out by humans, but by computer programs that have been made to exploit vulnerabilities that are often found in misconfigured servers or un-updated platforms such as WordPress, WooCommerce, or Magento. We install a number of security softwares to keep your site protected against most common threats.
