Premium Shared Hosting is ideal for clients whose website has outgrown Shared Hosting, but who don't want the responsibility of managing their own Virtual Private Server (VPS). You won't need to manage the server, just your site. And the increased capabilities of the platform will let you grow your site without worrying about server management.
Yes, remote MySQL database access, for the purposes of using software like MySQL Workbench and Navicat, is available on Premium Shared Hosting.
Yes. Premium Shared Hosting packages offer an ultra low contention hosting platform which also includes SSH access to your website space.
If your payment gateway is offsite (that is, your customer goes to a payment vendor website such as Sagepay, Worldpay or PayPal to make their final payment) our Premium Shared Hosting will be fine. If you have an onsite payment gateway (where you take payments on a page on your website using Sagepay Go Direct or similar) then you will need your own Virtual Private Server to satisfy the requirements of the PCI-DSS standard. Contact us and we'll be happy to advise.
Premium Shared Hosting gives you a live environment for your live domain. If you want to host multiple live sites on Premium Shared Hosting you will need to sign up for a package for each site. If you want to develop a copy of one of your sites, you will need to purchase an alternative package and develop the site from there. This can be on another platform entirely (such as the standard Shared Hosting packages) and we can offer you assistance moving the data between the servers.
nginx complements Apache in a dual web server configuration. Apache, the most common web server on Linux, is very capable, but nginx is faster and more efficient at serving static resources, such as images. When running alongside each other, content is provided by the web server best suited to that content type, so you should find that your site runs faster whilst using less resource. Some sites are better suited to this setup than others, and gains will be more noticeable on some sites than others. Talk to us if you're unsure about the best configuration for your site.
There is no 'better'. They are different approaches to hosting a website. Premium Shared Hosting is an optimised, controlled platform, providing high performance shared website hosting using the latest technology. A Virtual Private Server can provide all this with the added ability to administer, configure, amend and access the server however you choose. That additional power costs more, and may not best meet your needs. One thing that shouldn't be an issue is the expertise traditionally required to manage a VPS system. We offer managed VPS so you needn't feel intimidated by the added complexity. If you're unsure, please call us and we'll help you work through the options.
