About Hosting With Zangaroa Web Development
Hosting your internet operations with Zangaroa is unlike hosting with any other web host. Unlike most other hosting companies who just provide you space and let you go at it yourself, we offer a more "managed" range of options, for business professionals who can't be tied down to administrative tasks on the back-end. This is where we come in.
Our hosting plans are tailored around our clients who typically do more than just "host" their website with us. That is, clients whose internet operations we also program and develop. However, we do offer hosting services to the general public as well, as part of our "Managed Cloud Hosting Services" division. Rather than just set you up with an account and set you loose, we are always available for advanced technical support, which is automatically factored into our rates. Need a database created? Need some e-mail forwarders set up? Need help installing a script? We set ourselves apart from general hosting companies by offering our hosting services bundled with our server administration services, meaning that once you are hosting with us, you don't have to hire an extra business to manage your server or hosting account for you.
What Are Your Hosting Capabilities?
All of our web hosting operations are backed by Rackspace and Amazon, two of the largest providers of enterprise-grade cloud hosting services. Most of our hosting plans revolve around the Linux platform, of whom Rackspace provides cloud server infrastructure for. In the case of Windows hosting, (available as part of our dedicated and enterprise solutions) that is provided by Amazon. We also offer file hosting through Rackspace and Akamai's tier-one content delivery network, also known as a CDN.
Operating systems supported include:
- CentOS (default for shared hosting environments)
- Red Hat
- Windows Server
What is So Special About the Cloud?
The "Cloud" is a complex and constantly-growing array of thousands of nodes working together to provide a stable and scalable hosting environment. Rather than be constrained to the limits of a single physical server, the Cloud is capable of distributing load and growth across the massive network that it entails.
Because of the nature of the Cloud, we can deploy virtual server instances within the cloud on a whim, without the overhead or complexities required of running a physical server. Thus we can scale up within the Cloud as our network grows, while still being able to keep operating costs and maintenance at a minimum, and being able to spend more time attending to the needs of our customers.
