Why choosing a host means choosing the best?
Choosing a web host can be difficult for customers who are not computer literate. This booming industry is extremely dynamic and therefore requires professionals capable of constantly renewing themselves in order to meet the new needs of customers.
This is why, in order to choose a quality host who will be a real partner on whom you can count and who will accompany you in your projects of digital transformation, innovation, and process automation, you will need to inform yourself in detail about the solutions that he is able to offer you.
The ability to offer you tailor-made technologies and services, while having the possibility of ensuring monitoring and security of these is a sign of expertise and professionalism.
In this article, we will present the most important criteria that will allow you to make an informed choice when you decide on a host. We will, of course, take this opportunity to discuss the advantages of RosHosting compared to its competitors.
Criterion number 1: The equipment used
The material that your host has chosen is very important because it must ensure the reliability, speed, security, and scalability of the services offered. Let’s see how Host manages to meet all these requirements.
Our company has chosen to work exclusively with DELL servers: a brand that has already proven itself on a global scale. Their 14th generation server (R640, R740, etc.) have recently been installed in all our data centers.
This new hardware has a scalable, automated and secure computing platform that is specially adapted to the new Intel Xeon SP processors. This accelerates the performance of databases and storage, thereby maximizing the performance of applications installed on the server.
Dell EMC PowerEdge also has intelligent automation and proactive and predictive technologies that significantly facilitate and accelerate problem resolution. The new generation of servers also includes Intel Xeon Scalable processors, which increases the number of processor cores by 27% and increases memory bandwidth by 50%.
Criterion number 2: The security of your data
Even if a web host has the best hardware on the market, that doesn’t mean it is the best choice for you. When choosing a service provider, you must also make sure that your company’s sensitive data is well protected.
All Host data centers are Tier 3 or 4: this means that they have been designed to host servers and critical computer systems. All systems (power, cooling, networks, connectivity, storage, etc.) are therefore redundant in order to ensure the uninterrupted operation of your applications at all times.
Our data centers are located in Europe (in France, Switzerland, and Bulgaria) and access to the premises is only possible on presentation of a badge, badge which will be personally viewed by a person ensuring site security, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
The substantial investments that we have made in our network and our infrastructures allow us to offer our customers a service close to 100% availability.
Criterion number 3: Certifications and guarantees
In our business, there are more or less large companies that lie or embellish the reality of their infrastructure. This is why, when choosing your host, it is very important to check whether it has been certified by a recognized and independent authority or whether it is able to guarantee the quality of its services with an SLA contract.
Currently, Host is in the process of obtaining its ISO / EIC 27001: 2013 certification. Aiming to define the information security management requirements, this certification is a guarantee of the highest level of security standard in our industry.
A detailed audit of all our processes and the precautions we take to ensure the protection of our customers’ data was carried out by the world leader in inspection, Bureau Veritas.
Criterion number 4: The team
RosHosting is a company on a human scale, made up of friends, enthusiasts, experts, and technicians at your service. Unlike large groups where staff turnover is very high, our company is proud to be able to provide you with technicians who are experts in their field and who have worked with us for over 10 years. With RosHosting, you benefit from reactive and efficient maintenance.
You can contact our specialists from your customer area using our ticket system.
Criterion number 5: Philosophy and ethics
Today’s customers are increasingly realizing that by choosing the services of a company, they encourage its economic model but also its ethical choices. That’s why trusting a host means sharing a vision with the latter.
We have always been a company aware of its environmental impact and therefore of its responsibilities towards the planet and its fellow citizens. Since January 1, 2017, we have been using 100% renewable energy for our data center in Lausanne.
Our goal is to gradually move towards the exclusive use of green energy on all of our sites. We are also sponsors of various foundations and regularly finance ecological, educational and sports projects.
