For any business, organization or individual looking for a web host with strong support for platform redundancy and failover rerouting, Crucial Webhosting has the products needed to ensure uninterrupted service without sacrificing application performance.
Crucial Webhosting is a hosting service provider based out of Pheonix Arizona, and has been in operation since May 2006. With highly technical expertise, and around-the-clock professional support, Crucial Webhosting is able to offer deeply customized hosting plans, paying detailed attention to the needs of their customers. Two Split Platforms:
The split-shared option is far more cost effective, but runs on less memory. What separates Split-Shared hosting from traditional hosting though, is that it uses virtualization as a means create isolation between individual websites. Split-shared hosting is ideal for bloggers, small businesses, and other low-traffic websites.
The Split-Dedicated service runs a Virtual Private Server on the hosting cluster, such that memory and bandwidth resource is always available and efficient. This is the preferred option for high-traffic websites which have lots of customer interaction and purchasing, or that might require setting up complex data structures.
The physical data center is run on a private server cluster cage at the PheonixNap data center facility. The information held in these servers is extremely secure digitally and physically. The network itself has a redundant and uninterrupted power supply, and the cluster is setup in such a way that applications can scale quickly as higher traffic demands occur.
Most web hosts have a standard installation of core technologies which are supported the strongest. For Crucial Webhosting, the following technologies are used:
With these core technology paradigms in place, Crucial Webhosting has optimized themselves for the Magneto Platform. They don't just meet the minimum requirements to run Magneto, they have engineered the hardware and hosting software of their platform to run Magneto and the maximum possible benchmark.
They've been working with Magneto since it was in beta, and have strong internal knowledge on how it operates. With such strong support, this makes Crucial Webhosting an ideal candidate for eCommerce service hosting.
Featured on their customer showcase are liquidation websites for retail industry giants Walmart and Sam's Club. Proving to offer fast transactional service support for those websites allows for live auctions to take place.
They 100% own their own servers, they simply rent space at the PheonixNap Data service site.
The level of root control depends on which hosting plan is selected, however, all plans allow for SSH access, remote MySQL access, SFTP, SCP and webmail access.
No, Crucial is not a domain name registrar. Domains will need to be purchased externally and pointed via their DNS nameservers.
Crucial can be contacted for further inquiries, individual projects would need to solicite for sponsorship.
The most current stable versions are used, covering PHP 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5, all of which can be run from a single account.
Yes, but this is dependent on the site application used to perform the mailing. For mass mailings, a third party service is recommended instead.
From a technical perspective, it involves the use of server containers managed by CloudLinux. For a simple explanation, it means that website server "overcrowding" never occurs, every site is guarenteed to have a significant fraction of resource available at all times.
Split-dedicated servers are virtualized, but resources are protected. Dedicated servers have protected resources as well, but often don't come with full-service server managment tools like cPanel and other applications. Additionally, a split-dedicated server is already hardened for security and setup for performance.
