WebhostUk Limited; UK’s leading web hosting company, today announced the new line of servers for E-Commerce hosting powered with Nginx. The new servers are Dell branded servers, Quad Core Xeon processors, powerful RAM and high capacity SAS hard drives and SATA drives configured with hardware RAID.
The custom configured new servers are specially designed and installed with Ngnix with apache, to boost up the performance of ecommerce hosting (applications and stores) such as Magento, Oscommerce, Cubecart, Zencart, PrestaShop etc.
Nginx is a high-performance HTTP server, known for its high performance, stability, rich feature set, simple configuration, and low resource consumption. Unlike traditional servers, Nginx doesn’t rely on threads to handle requests. Instead it uses a much more scalable event-driven (asynchronous) architecture. This architecture uses small, but more importantly, predictable amounts of memory under load. Even if you don’t expect to handle thousands of simultaneous requests, you can still benefit from Nginx’s high-performance and small memory footprint.
Successfully working on thousands of production servers all over the world since Feb 2010, Nginx has boosted our server performance working along with Apache, in terms of speed and performance for high resource applications like Magento, Joomla, Drupal, WordPress etc.
Abbie Clayton, Head of Business Development for WEBHOSTUK LTD says, “After extensive testing of Nginx on our linux servers, for last so many months, we decided to implement it into production enviornment, with the only purpose to enhance our servers for high performance of shopping carts and CMS’s such as Magento, WordPress, Joomla etc..“. She further added, “We have noticed a considerable amount of boost in our Ecommerce hosting servers, since we have implemented Nginx, and have decided to offer pre-configured FREE Ngnix powered VPS’s and Dedicated servers, which will come with free managed services“.
The company has now started offering pre-installed Nginx web server option as a free service along with their VPS and Dedicated Servers, where the customer can choose Nginx + Apache combo, free of charge.
