How Railgun Works

This will not only help to deliver faster page times, but help make our customer’s websites more secure.

Elk Grove, CA (PRWEB) April 19, 2013

PacificHost, a leading provider of Linux-based cPanel hosting solutions for social media and video sharing websites recently announced the addition of Railgun to its shared and reseller hosting services. Railgun works in conjunction with the CloudFlare CDN to cache both static and dynamic content; this has been shown to provide a 143% improvement in HTML load times.

In May of 2011, PacificHost added the CloudFlare CDN to its line of hosting products. This technology helped to increase website security, and help speed up static content. Despite caching up to 65% of a website, CloudFlare was unable cache the dynamic content. Railgun solves that problem by efficiently compressing dynamic content, and serving that in conjunction with the static HTML files. This in turn, reduces latency by allowing the visitor to retrieve all the content from the nearest CloudFlare datacenter.

“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. 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 ,” said Thomas Perry, President and Founder of PacificHost.

In addition to offering CloudFlare for free, the company has chosen to include Railgun for free in its line-up of hosting products. PacificHost customers can activate Railgun by logging into their cPanel account, and clicking on the “CloudFlare” icon.

The company also announced that it will be tuning its server configurations for new shared and reseller servers, beginning in early May. These changes will include 32GB of DDR3 RAM, 2 Gigabit Ethernet cards, 12TB of space across Enterprise Sata drives, running on Hardware Raid 10. The new hardware is expected to increase speed and server capacity for PacificHost’s expanding video hosting market.
