Your website exists to communicate and to facilitate interaction with clients, and if your website is down, this will not happen. As businesses continue to grow their customer base through website traffic and leads, downtime can make or break a company in a growth stage. How can a business owner protect themselves against downtime? FullHost offers Geographic Redundancy, virtually eliminating the possibility of downtime.
When you host your website with FullHost, you’re trusting us to protect your data, and keep downtime to an absolute minimum. With Geographic Redundancy, rather than storing your website data on one server in one location, a second copy of your data is also stored in a secondary backup server. The primary virtual or dedicated server is located in either our Toronto or Vancouver data center. An exact replica of their application is stored on a server in the other respective data center. If there is an issue with your site, server or the entire data center causing it to be inaccessible, within minutes the traffic will be automatically routed to the secondary server in the other data center. This decreases downtime, and ensures redundancy over multiple locations and when the “primary” server is back up, traffic will be routed back automatically.
Capitalize on marketing dollars. The amount of time, effort, and funds that are part of creating a website, managing content, and promoting it are costly. Protecting your site against the unexpected will ensure that your marketing budget is not going to waste.
No action is required to initiate the activation of the secondary server. Everything is automatic; if your site goes down at 3am and no one is around to notice, our Geographic Redundancy service will kick in. When your primary server is back up and functioning normally, your traffic is automatically routed back to it.
If you would like to take advantage of the Geographic Redundancy feature and host your current site with FullHost, you’re making a step in the right direction. When a website is down, it impacts every aspect of your business, including your reputation. Geographic Redundancy is the best way to steer clear of a website disaster – it’s the method we use to protect our website too!
