Basics of Our Hosting Architecture
ReadyShip offers WordPress hosting in combination with a variety of services offered by Amazon Web Services. The hosting we offer is shared, however all the websites are completely isolated from each other and therefore their files are protected.
In security terms, this means that your website won’t be affected or harmed by other customers. For example, your website will not be affected if some customer’s WordPress is being hacked (for example if a user’s control panel password is leaked).
Additionally, because websites are independent at hosting level, setup can be performed on a single-website basis, with various hosting configuration settings.
Changing Infrastructure Settings
Generally, most of the settings may be changed. If you want to change some settings, please contact our support team. Settings changes examples:
- IP access limitations
- CDN cache rule changes
To maximize the performance speed, we provide AWS Fullstack Architecture which includes CloudFront CDN, SSD, S3, EC2, RDS, Lambda functions (for monitoring website’s health) and so on.
All websites have the following system specs:
- OS: Amazon Linux 2
- CPU: 8 x 3.1 GHz Intel Xeon Scalable (Skylake)
- Networking Bandwidth: Up to 25Gbps
- Memory: up to 64 GB dynamically
- Web Server: Openlitespeed 1.6.5 or later
- PHP Version: 7.2.2 or later
- Maximum Upload Size: 256 MB
- Database: AWS RDS, Aurora MySQL 5.6.x
- Storage: NVMe SSD Instance Storage
This information is current as of July 2020. We will keep improving our hosting services so upgrades will be applied as needed.
As OS we are using Amazon Linux 2 and we have customized, and configured it specifically for WordPress, shared hosting and ultra high speed machine.
CDN Caching, A Mechanism for Better Speed
CDN (AWS CloudFront) is included in every plan we offer. Because our service is set to rely firmly on caching by default, please make sure to clear your cache after you have added changes to your WordPress site or added a post. You can clear your cache from the WordPress Dashboard as shown below.
Notes Regarding CDN Caching
Under default settings, compatibility with some plugins may be degraded (such as plugins for displaying views or “likes” counts). In such case we can change the CDN settings for you, so please contact our support team.
24/7 Website Monitoring
ReadyShip performs 24/7 observation of each website. If we detect an issue, our infrastructure team will first attempt to resolve it. If the issue appears to have been caused by changes made by the customer, we will contact you by email with instructions.
