Whether you are a brick and mortal business or exist solely online, your website exists to communicate and interact with your customers and clients. No matter if your site is solely informational or if you conducting e-commerce through it, you can’t make sales or reach your audience if your site is offline.
Unlike a traditional bricks and mortar business, your website never closes and it needs to be up 24/7/365. If the thought of downtime keeps you up at night, and need to have an insurance policy in place in the unlikely event something happens, our Geographic Redundancy services virtually eliminate this possibility.
Investing in a fail over service is your disaster recovery plan, one that you hope to not ever need, but it’s there for you when you do need it.
When you host your website with FullHost, you’re trusting us to protect your data, and keep downtime to an absolute minimum.
Rather than storing your website data on one server in one location, a second and exact copy of your data is also stored in a secondary server in a secondary location, meaning that your data will exist in two geographically separate locations using our Vancouver and Toronto data centers.
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 significantly reduces downtime, and ensures redundancy over multiple locations. Once the primary server is back up, traffic will be routed back automatically.
There are two ways that we maintain this link, either through an instant or time delayed replication process. The former is critically important when you have ever changing databases that need to be in sync, where the latter can be used more for when site content isn’t changing by the minute.
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
