Server Network Explained

 Around March-April, a fellow friend/client Kim  outgrew  the  limitations of Godaddy’s Shared Hosting platform with her business that is a music e-magazine for music in London, UK.  Kim came to CainTechServices LLC as a client  due to  unjust bills from Justhost at over $400 a year for hosting, not counting domains! (December 2014 and previous,) On-top of that Justhost  was emailing her ultimatums  over  file count  (too many images, over 7 years of website content.) The ultimatums were about shutting down her website, over violation  of the terms of service  over a 50,000 file count limit.


In April, NeverEnoughNotes (NEN) started to experience blackouts and downtime with the website being unreachable. For  one month, CainTech Services  dealt with  this problem, the solution as suggested by a fellow IT company in Gibraltar Spain Want Studios LTD   was to have NEN have it’s own server. Since it was apparent  by WANT Studios that  NEN had grown to large for  services offered by Godaddy.


 Over the past  two weeks NEN uses  it’s own resources  for NEN’S website. There are NO downtime issues,  no 30 seconds or more load times etc. Speed of NEN was additionally cut down to 60-300 milliseconds in website speed, as opposed to 5-45 second load times.


This has been accomplished  due to the fact of CainTech Services now operates it’s own content distribution network (CDN) on continental North America/Europe with over 70 total servers. 25 in the USA, and  34 in Europe.

Along with  our CDN as the backbone  for  website loading times our server farm is located in these locations:

There are Secondary DNS servers on both continents  for load time balancing  as well.

Our Secondary DNS locations:

  • Dallas, TX
  • Chicago, IL
  • Los Angeles, CA
  • Reston, VA
  • London, UK

Each secondary DNS server is completely independent so an outage at one will not affect name resolution for your DNS zones.

These servers are now available to all CainTech Services clientele  in 2015 if they ask to upgrade to  new servers.

Current Server/Website  speed is seen here:

Under the current server  architecture/platform  load times are seen for  our client The Monroe Buzz which will be migrated to the new server in October 2015.
Please note 1,000 milliseconds  equals 1 second, thus 10,000 milliseconds  = 10 seconds etc.

By the fourth quarter,  all  clients should be migrated to new servers. CainTech Services will always continue to deliver  affordable hosting  and services compared to it’s competitors. As stated there will be no price increases.

As a note,  there is nothing wrong with Shared Hosting that Godaddy provides for what many may deem as mom and pop businesses or small businesses.  Though when your website grows  too large in terms of it’s content, or  website traffic.  Since NeverEnoughNotes  is listed in Google News search results etc.  You as a website owner will require  dedicated  resources to your website that are not shared resources between hundreds or thousands of other customers.  Each service has  it’s own strengths  and disadvantages.
