When we first launched our Turbo Shared Hosting in 2014, our customers jumped on those servers so they could experience 20X FASTER page loads. We couldn’t have imagined back then how fast our latest generation of Shared plans would actually be, but we’ve continued to focus on breaking new speed barriers.
We’re excited to announce our brand new, Shared Hosting lineup that now includes two even FASTER Turbo Server options. Our new Turbo Servers are 2X FASTER to first byte and feature 40% FASTER CPU performance than our previous platform!
Why Turbo Is Faster Than Ever
Each Turbo Hosting account is now hosted on the latest generation of AMD’s EPYC hardware. EPYC servers provide enhanced processing power with unbelievable I/O capacity to help vastly reduce bottlenecks. Our EPYC hardware also uses non-volatile memory express (NVMe) storage. NVMe drives’ read/write speeds are 3X faster compared to standard SSDs, making read/write speeds blazing fast and removing bottlenecks that could slow down your website’s load time.
We have also increased CPU and RAM on our Turbo servers. Increased CPU means more instructions can be executed each second by your server. More instructions per second, means better performance. Additional RAM means more data and instructions can be accessed directly by the CPU.
Our Turbo Servers also feature:
- LiteSpeed Web Server (drop-in, speed enhanced Apache alternative)
- Fewer customers per server to provide even more resources to each customer.
- Turbo Caching which speeds up page load times for pages that have already been visited
- Ability to handle more traffic with enhanced stability
Why The Focus On Hosting Speed?
A2 Hosting’s focus on offering high-performance hosting is driven by the fact that website speed is directly correlated to website success. Your choice of web host is a large factor in page load speed. It has been proven time and again that faster websites have higher conversion rates, lower bounce rates, better visitor satisfaction rates, and improved organic search engine rankings. Below are some numbers to consider. A one-second delay in page load can result in a:
- 7% reduction in conversion rate
- 16% decrease in customer satisfaction
- 11% decrease in page reviews
