FastDomain Web Hosting Help

Overwhelming Traffic

Summary

FastDomains' high powered servers can support several hundred websites easily. FastDomain has taken many steps to allow your site to become very popular without a degradation of service. However as users share the certain resources, including disk space, processor (CPU), and bandwidth limits (the speed and capacity of the Internet connection). If one website becomes extraordinarily popular it can threaten the normal speed of access you have been accustomed to.


CPU Protection

Shared servers from FastDomain are monitored to make sure each customer gets their fair share of resources on the server. This software is in place so that you have a low chance of being affected by abusive users on the server. When a servers performance is being affected by an abusive user we can identify the user and take corrective action.

CloudFlare

CloudFlare is a very powerful Content Delivery Network (CDN) that we offer to all of our customers for free. If you are worried about a sudden spike in traffic CloudFlare is a great way to handle this increased traffic.

To enable CloudFlare you will need to:
  1. Login to your FastDomain Control Panel
  2. Click the CloudFlare icon, located in the Domains section of the cPanel.
  3. Click the Activate link, located to the right of your Domain Name.

Dedicated Hosting

However if your website becomes very popular (such as having tens of thousands of simultaneous users) please consider looking into a dedicated hosting solution.

Due to our shared server model, FastDomain is able to offer unsurpassed prices and the best customer support, that will not be found easily and cheaply elsewhere. Many customers that left come back and choose to stay with us and just move portions of their site to the dedicated solution.

Customers that need Flash Servers, or game server commonly leave their Web sites and email with us and move the content that demands a dedicated solution. This is the most economical solution for most customers.
