New Server Build – Ludicrous Speed

Written by Douglas Perry on . Posted in AWS, BWG Updates, Server, Support, WordPress

At Boston Web Group, we’re always innovating and working on pushing the envelope of technology.

We’re pleased, no, ecstatic to announce our next-generation web hosting platform. Our R&D work with other clients has helped us develop a web hosting platform that is the fastest and most scalable hosting offered by a Boston-based digital agency.

Most web servers run on the LAMP stack: Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP; but Apache is so 1995.

Apache is the software that makes serving up websites possible. It’s been around for 20 years and is showing its age. It was designed during a time on the Internet when websites were simple and people danced the macarena.

The New BWG Hosting Platform

Our platform is different. It was built for today’s websites and performs to today’s expectations of speed and traffic handling. It supports cutting-edge technology like solid-state hard drives, PHP 7, HTTP/2, and on-the-fly code optimization for WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, and other PHP-based websites. We offer an advanced cache technology that improves speed for Magneto sites by up to 35%.

It’s the best hosting platform we’ve built to date. It surpasses the offerings by the bigger hosting providers. Want in?

The chances are that you’re already on it, and you probably notice the speed increases already.  In fact, you may have been one of the few that had to call in and have some special tweaks done for your mail, server, or app hosting.  Well, we’re still fine tuning and tweak things under the hood daily, so let us know if you have issue or if you want to upgrade to faster hosting – we’ll custom define your hosting environment based on your website/APP’s needs.

If you want to learn more, give us a call at 855-355-SITE to get on the priority list. If you’ve been thinking of switching hosting providers, switch now and we’ll give you a FREE SSL certificate for a year.

We love our customers !

Host Your Website With Us And Keep Your Email Server Elsewhere

How do I point my domain at Boston Web Group?

Without affecting my email server settings!

If you want to continue using your email with another service provider (like Go Daddy or Network Solutions) and have us host your website at Boston Web Group – all you have to do is edit your DNS settings in your domain control panel.  Those DNS settings are going to be found at the registrar – the place where you bought your domain. Once you are in there, you want to point only your A Records to us.  Simply paste in the IP address that we give you.  An IP address looks like a phone number – – in fact it behaves a lot like a phone number as well ! Updating the A record will point your domain to our hosting service – without disrupting the MX records, which control your email service with your domain provider, such as Go Daddy or Network Solutions.
