Linux-based cPanel hosting solutions provider for social media and video sharing websites PacificHost has added Railgun to its shared and reseller hosting services for free. Earlier this year, PacificHost included CPremote backups for it’s customers. Railgun provides 143% improvement in HTML load times by working in conjunction with the CloudFlare CDN to cache both static and dynamic content.
An official press release cited that since CloudFlare is inefficient in caching Dynamic Content, PacificHost has decided to add Railgun; which efficiently compresses dynamic content and serving it in conjunction with the static HTML files. This leads to reduced latency by enabling visitosr to retrieve all the content from the nearest CloudFlare datacenter.
– Thomas Perry, President, PacificHost
Railgun also increases the website security and speeds up the dynamic content. Cloudflare recently released V 3.3.3 of Railgun to offer hosting customers One-Click Dynamic Caching. added the ClodFlare CDN to its hosting products way back in 2011;
“CloudFlare has been a great addition to our hosting service, and when CloudFlare chose us to join their exclusive partner program for Railgun, we were ecstatic,” said Thomas Perry, President and Founder, PacificHost. “A large majority of our customers run social media and video based websites, and this will not only help to deliver faster page times, but help make our customer’s websites more secure with their integrated security and analytics programs ,” he added.
