In the traditional hosting environment, a single server "hosts" many websites, often several thousand. While this model is quite cost effective for the provider, it has some major drawbacks for the customer, namely reliability and performance. If you happen to be on a server that experiences a hardware failure (and when a server is churning out data 24x7, they happen more frequently than you might imagine), your site is down until that machine is repaired (assuming someone noticed the failure to begin with). It doesn't take a failure to bring your site down either; it only takes one or two active websites to monopolize the resources of a server and bring the other thousands of sites to a crawl, unless the websites in question are hosted by Gate.com.
In our architecture, each website is hosted by an entire array of servers. If a server experiences a hardware failure, the other servers in the array automatically pick up the slack and your website continues to function... The failure goes completely unnoticed except by our team of engineers, who are monitoring all systems 24x7. The server cluster also means more resources are on tap when you need them and faster response time for all visitors to your website, all the time.
The power of Gate.com's hosting architecture also extends beyond the server to the application layer. Our platform is continually updated to support the latest in hosting technologies such as the ASP.Net framework, new versions of PHP, and literally dozens of other developer tools and compilers. Our diligence allows you to build or install the latest Web modules and applications with confidence.
