Overview

About Web Faction

Make your site faster
We put fewer people on each server than most hosting providers and as a result our servers tend to be faster and more stable. Also, we use the blazing fast Nginx to serve static content. You still get the power of Apache for dynamic content but for static content nothing beats Nginx.

Our servers are in ThePlanet's datacenter in Texas (often cited as one of the best datacenters in the world).

High-performance hosting
Fast CPUs, enterprise SSD storage, world-class datacenters and network.

Servers configured with care
We pre-install all servers with a hardened configuration of CentOS 7 and dozens of extra packages for the latest versions of all common tools like Python, Ruby,
Node.js, Git, PHP etc.

Fully managed servers
We continously monitor all servers for performance and security and we regularly patch them and back them up. We also add new versions of tools when they are released.

Full shell access
You get full shell access to the servers to manage your files, databases and processes. You can also install your own tools in your home directory.

One-click installer for many applications
Our control panel lets you install many applications like WordPress, Django, Node.js etc. in one click to hit the ground running.

Email, database and DNS hosting
All accounts come with email hosting (with secure POP, IMAP, SMTP, Webmail and spam filtering) and database hosting (MySQL and PostgreSQL). You can manage your emails, databases and DNS records from our control panel.
