Devon Web Hosting
Lightning Fast Hosting
Gold Coast Media provides fast, efficient and reliable web/email hosting in Devon for our clients.

As developers we know the importance of rich yet efficient and quick websites. Recent research shows that 75% of visitors don't return to websites for the sole reason they are slow and unresponsive. For this reason we have implemented advanced technologies including op-code caching, output filter compression and the ability for parallelisation, query and browser caching and more. Websites hosted with Gold Coast Media are snappy now but more importantly for the future. Providing the freedom for automatic and manual optimisation implementations is very important to us and we continue to put extra effort and care into the performance of our servers.
Our servers are also in data centres physically in the UK (London). This provides UK users a faster experience and also helps in search engine rankings for websites targeting a UK audience.
Secure Daily Backups
We manage backups both manual and automatic to secure local and remote locations. This includes websites, images, email and databases on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. Should you ever accidentally delete a file or overwrite your website we have a backup ready and waiting.
Knowing that your data is being securely backed up is extremely important. Many local clients can have physical access to their data from our office instantly and can also take advantage of our email archiving should they accidentally delete an email.
As we run our own websites on the same servers as our clients, we respond immediately to any issues that crop up. Clients are used to us fixing anything that comes to our immediate attention for free.
Gold Coast Media have also developed software that keeps us updated with the status of all our hosted websites alerting us 24/7 should any incidents occur. We also use monitoring software that will attempt to fix problems instantaneous before any problems are even visible.
Websites hosted with us aren't being shared with thousands of other people removing the need for imposing quotas on our clients. Your site will not get banned because it shares hosting with another banned site!
Gold Coast Media uses the very latest web technologies on a secure and stable GNU/Linux platform. As web developers, our servers allow us to have a flexible development environment that the restrictions of other hosting companies can prevent. This leads to quicker development, more efficient websites and significantly lower loading times for your visitors. It also means we can make our websites super fast, which we do, and to have full control in fixing any problems that might arise without relying on third-parties.

Gold Coast Media develops in a large number of languages and technologies that fit certain projects. To allow for this we've made sure our servers run the very latest and powerful languages and systems. Here is a list of some technologies our servers utilise;
|Varnish||Varnish is a HTTP accelerator designed for content-heavy dynamic web sites. It is used as a proxy server for Apache and provides advanced caching and serving features.|
|Apache||The Apache HTTP Server is web server software notable for playing a key role in the initial growth of the World Wide Web. In 2009 it became the first web server software to surpass the 100 million website milestone.|
|Pagespeed||mod_pagespeed is an open-source Apache module that automatically optimizes web pages and resources on them. It does this by rewriting the resources using filters that implement web performance best practices.|
|MySQL||MySQL is a relational database management system (RDBMS) that runs as a server providing multi-user access to a number of databases.|
|Languages: PHP, Python, Perl||PHP is a general-purpose scripting language originally designed for web development to produce dynamic web pages.
Python is an interpreted, general-purpose high-level programming language.
Perl is a high-level, general-purpose, interpreted, dynamic programming language.
|XCache||XCache is a open-source opcode cacher, which means that it accelerates the performance of PHP on servers. It optimizes performance by removing the compilation time of PHP scripts by caching the compiled state of PHP scripts into the shm (RAM) and uses the compiled version straight from the RAM. This will increase the rate of page generation time by up to 5 times as it also optimizes many other aspects of php scripts and reduces serverload.||BIND||BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Domain) is an implementation of the DNS protocols and provides an openly redistributable reference implementation of the major components of the Domain Name System.|
