Drawbacks of Traditional Shared Hosting
Hi everybody, this is Chris with Tiny Frog Technologies. I am the hosting and maintenance manager and today I want to talk to you a little bit about disallow plugins that we have on our server and the downfalls of traditional hosting servers. Traditional hosting such as shared hosting environments that have hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of websites on the server, most of the time you run into a performance issue, a security issue, if it’s not a secured managed hosting environment. Also, there’s, you know, the support. Sometimes, those companies, they’re not quick to respond, your site’s down, things of that nature.
Here at Tiny Frog, what we do is we offer a very responsive support system. We usually respond within minutes versus days or hours or weeks. We also offer restore points, where if even if you know the breakage of the site is client-related and they messed up the site, we can simply restore and put it back to the way it was functioning properly.
I want to talk to you a little bit about disallowed plugins that we have for WordPress that are on a list and the reason for that is because there are certain plugins that just don’t work well on our server. They either cause what we call plugin bloat, which slows down the site. Too many queries that happen that basically, it’s like asking a lot of questions at the same time and the server is like, “Oh my gosh, I’m overwhelmed!” So there’s a list of plugins that we pretty much don’t allow on our server because they can either impact security or they can impact performance. And what we like to do is: We don’t compromise on security, there’s just no if ands or buts about security, that’s our number one top priority. And then performance comes next after that because everybody wants a fast-loading website performing well for their users that visit.
Thanks again, this is Chris with Tiny Frog Technologies. If you’d like more information, please contact me at Tiny Frog Technologies.
