SaaS Hosting

Ligtning Speeds | Improved Page Rank | Heightened Security | Complete Back-Up | Improved SEO


Website hosting is a delicate dance between 3 independent hosts / servers.  The DNS host that identifies the IP address of your site; the file host of your static files (images, html, CSS, PHP, Java, JSON, etc. . . .); and lastly, the database host which stores and calculates all your dynamic content.  Low cost hosting plans focus one thing, keeping costs down. Service being secondary, page load speeds can suffer from inconsistent performance from any one or more of these hosts.  This can create large problems in both user experience and SEO page rank, the two most valuable aspects of your website. 

Basic PHP / MySQL websites take 3-6 seconds to load pages on a common host depending upon intermittent variances.  DISTiMAN is above and beyond a common website.  A DISTiMAN website loaded with a few thousand parts utilizing multiple custom fields, and deep result pages that calculate pre-sorted lists and user-specific sorting / product filtering, page loads could easily take 4~12 seconds on a basic hosting plan.  This amount of time would damage your Google reputation (SEO) and not meet the expectations of the user.

For this reason, DISTiMAN provides one of the most advanced hosting services to ensure lightning speed operation that increase Google reputation (SEO) and user experience.  Our dedicated SaaS hosting utilizes the following:
 
 

AWS LAMBDA

The world's most advanced cloud serverless computing network (CSCN), It automatically finds nearest available cloud server to the user opening your website and optimise the heavy files to deliver it at blazing fast speed.
 

CLOUD ARMY

Compress and partial optimise all static files and scripts prior to storing on cloud around the globe to be consumed by AWS Lambda, Cloud Army when combined with Lamda achive 5thGen speeds/div>

LITESPEED SERVER

Static files like images, css, javascripts are taken care by Army and Lambda, what about the php files? Litespeed the fastest server on Earth for PHP brings Up to 5x faster with 98% reduced server load compared to traditional Apache Servers

 CONFIGURATION

 16 DualCore AMD EPYC 7282 processors; Solid-state MVME drives; 2TB Ram; and 10Gbit/s ports.

SUCURI

Anti-hacking / antivirus software continually scans and protects from virus, hacks and DDOS attacks

BACK-UP

FAQs

What about On-Site Search Engine Optimization?
Search engines reward sites that provide the best "user experience".  These are easily measured by: page load speeds; compliance for desktop, tablet and mobile browsers; compliance to HTML5 / CSS3 /BootStrap 4 compliance; and finally the quantity and quality of unique content on your site.

The DISTiMAN platform is continually updated to ensure compliance to the latest in browser and programming language compliance. Using AWS for our content delivery network and LiteSpeed servers ensures the fastest page load speeds.

All the fields in our site utilize "structured data" designations to better inform the search engines how to index brand names, product descriptions, part numbers, pricing and all your custom fields.  Since search engines allocate only a limited amount of time for their robots to crawl your site, our lightning server speed ensures they can crawl and index more of your pages and unique content.

DISTiMAN's import / export function and one-click editing allow you to manage your  content more easily, so you can continually enhance and expand your content to improve and grow your page rank.  The combination of these factors should land your site extremely high on the search engines without the need for expensive off-site Search Engine Marketing Services.
