1. Introduce StableHost 2017 – Review And Guide StableHost
Compared with previous years, 2017 StableHost has upgraded many more worthwhile features:
Use LiteSpeed Cache Webserver
LiteSpeed Cache is a new WebServer technology, compared to the Apache Webserver, the processing speed of LiteSpeed Cache is many times faster. Many Hosting providers have switched to LiteSpeed Cache like HawkHost, AzDigi, and StableHost.
Enabling LiteSpeed Cache is very easy to do with plugins of the same name.
Integrate SSL Let’s Encrypt in cPanel
SSL Certificate is now a must-have for any website, there are many solutions to SSL installation, but Let’s Encrypt SSL is most commonly used because it is free, stable and sponsored by Giant corporations like Google, Mozilla …
Almost all high-quality Hosting services such as SiteGround, A2Hosting, HawkHost have integrated Let’s Encrypt SSL in cPanel, and StableHost is no exception.
You only need 1 minute to activate SSL for any site on StableHost, without spending hours as if installing Lets Encrypt SSL on VPS.
Better yet, the SSL Certificate Let’s Encrypt will renew itself for you forever!
Support for PHP 7 (currently 7.1)
The world has been waiting for more than 10 years to see a big upgrade for PHP, perhaps too tired so many people are no longer interested when PHP jump from version 5 to straight version 7 by the end of 2015. But: that may be wrong!
PHP 7 does not create the revolution but it is the most perfect PHP ever. The highlight of PHP 7 is the speed has been improved a lot times the old version, support many advanced acceleration technologies, and PHP 7 as well as light work, less errors and better security!
Just like your competitors, StableHost supports PHP 7, you only need 1 minute to upgrade from PHP 5 and select supportive technologies!
Integrate CloudFlare into cPanel
CloudFlare is the most popular middleware and CDN service today, providing free unlimited number of websites for everyone.
CloudFlare’s DNS has very fast response rates, many of the major websites are using. CloudFlare’s free CDN service is well suited to speed up access to Web sites from areas far from Datacenters.
In StableHost’s cPanel, we can easily enable CloudFlare for each website.
Open Datacenter in Singapore
This is probably the most popular upgrade VN users. HawkHost’s main rival, HawkHost, has had a long-standing datacenter in Singapore, pioneering more in Hong Kong, making access speed from Asia “dizzying”.
In the period 2015 – 2016, almost StableHost does not compete with HawkHost. Since launching the Singapore data center to compete with HawkHost, Asian users have been busy registering for StableHost – as never before!
