We recently announced the addition of Redis and Memcached to our Business Hosting Plans, two of the most widely used solutions to accelerate database queries through caching.

Today, we're introducing another speed enhancing tool - LiteSpeed Cache.

LiteSpeed Cache can dramatically increase the speed of your website. This can have significant impact on your search engine ranking and also improve your user experience and the number of prospective customers your business converts.

Once implemented, your site will operate, quite literally, at light speed.

The performance is simply breathtaking.

Statement Regarding Hurricane Irma

Written by Jo Stonehouse
Update September 12: Hurricane Irma passed through Tampa without any disruption to our service. Normal operations have now resumed and new server provisions are once again possible.

With Hurricane Irma approaching Florida this weekend, where many of our U.S. based servers are located in our Tampa facility, we would like to assure our customers that every precaution has been made in preparation for the storm.

The facility that houses our servers was built with just this kind of weather event in mind, located 90ft above sea level in a hardened hurricane-resistant windowless bunker. The datacenter has 'critical infrastructure' designation with the Department of Homeland Security and City of Tampa, and as such has dual power connectivity to both the airport and hospital power grids.

Even better website security... protected by a Ninja.

Ensuring our web hosting is as secure as possible is a top priority for us at Kualo. Protecting our customers' web sites from the bad guys is much like a conventional arms race. As the arsenal available to cyber criminals grows ever larger and more formidable, the more we have to to do to protect the sites we host.

Today we're excited to announce that we've added a black belt to our cyber defenses: BitNinja.
