Joomla Optimized HostingDon't put your website into the hands of just any hosting company. Choose one that has experience with managing Joomla!® optimized hosting for over five years.

 

Think long and hard about choosing your hosting provider. And then you should never have to think about it again.

When hosting isn't up to par, it affects your business in serious ways. Slow page loads, uncontrolled server security risks, site downtime - it's all an expensive headache from something that you shouldn't have to think about on a day to day basis.

Let's face it, you only have to think about your hosting when it's not going well.

While hosting is not our main business, we still take hosting Joomla sites pretty seriously here at Polished Geek. As a policy, we will only host people who have been clients of ours in some previous capacity or who are enrolled in one of our Joomla Royalty Website Care Plans for Joomla maintenance and support. We don't offer hosting to just anyone on the web, which means we can provide a more secure environment and more personalized service. Being selective about who we host allows us to know our client's websites and normal traffic patterns.

 

We offer a full range of hosting solutions:

  • Premium shared hosting for basic informational or brochure websites
  • Business shared hosting, for sites that have more traffic and need more power
  • VPS SSD hosting, for more control over configuration, privacy and performance*
  • Fully dedicated server hosting, for sites that demand the highest performance*

*If you have a Joomla eCommerce website that utilizes inline (on your website) credit card processing, private VPS or dedicated hosting are required for PCI Compliance.

 

We utilize a state-of-the art managed data center for our hosting platform.

This provides our clients with peace of mind and:

  • 99.9% uptime guaranteed
  • 24/7/365 network and server monitoring
  • Proactive server security updates for the server OS, firewall, C-Panel and other included hosting software
  • Proactive hardware maintenance
  • Server hardening, including advanced firewall, e-mail anti-virus and anti-spam systems, HTTP DOS and intrusion protection, kernel and filesystem hardening and more

 Plus strict data center security:

  • 24x7 Security staffing and CCTV surveillance
  • Biometric scanners for data center access
  • Mantraps and optical turnstiles at entrance

 Most of our hosting plans include:

  • Unlimited FTP accounts
  • Generous email storage
  • POP3, SMTP, IMAP and webmail access
  • cPanel and database access (phpMyAdmin)
  • Full DNS management for registered domains
  • Free AutoSSL with Let's Encrypt SSL certificates
