Application: Magento 2
Product: Cloud Clusters Hosting

Their Challenge

SublimeSQD was hosting their website in a Managed Dedicated Server with a different hosting provider but they were very unhappy with the poor website performance. Their website went offline frequently when the server backup was running and the backup was stored in the same server which is not the best practice.

They were also facing issues with their Magento 2 store every other day. Their old host setup Varnish cache in the server but interfered with their stock quantity display in their website frontend and they were forced to constantly clear their caches for updates to show up in the website.

They were also concerned about the ability of the dedicated server to handle spikes in traffic during major sales like Black Friday.

Our Solution

SublimeSQD approached us for a solution to their problem and we decided on our Cloud Clusters Hosting as the recommended solution.

With our Cloud Clusters Hosting, their website achieved a two-fold (2x or 100%) increase in performance thanks to our Magento Optimizations at the hardware and software level while SublimeSQD recorded a 50% increase in sales to their Magento 2 powered store!

Redundancy and availability of the website improved significantly as well with our 2N+1 High Availability architecture. All data are replicated in real-time across servers in different countries, ensuring that the website will remain up and running even in the event of any country level networking issues. In addition to that, we take backups daily and store them offsite for the ultimate data protection.

We replaced the ageing Varnish cache with LiteMage Cache, the fastest caching system for Magento which turbocharged the frontend of the website while allowing more traffic to be served without straining the servers. We complement it with an expertly tuned MariaDB Database along with Redis Cache to speed up the Checkout process and the Magento backend.

Our Magento Master also helped to troubleshoot and completely resolved the stock quantity display issue which has been plauging the SublimeSQD store since they were hosted at their previous provider.

With our Cloud Clusters Hosting, SublimeSQD can rest easy when it comes to any major sales or traffic spike with the flexibility to add more servers to their Cloud Clusters to cater to short term spikes or the ability to upgrade their servers for long term traffic growth.

Happy to recommend Very pleased with the service level that I have received. As usual with hosting, had to open a couple of support tickets on queries I had, these were solved promptly and in addition the company followed up to ensure that everything was okay. Hosting price is very good and the speed is even faster than I had hoped for. Would be happy to recommend this service to other users.

Good performance reseller hosting, with a small caveat I had a very positive experience with nofrillscloud hosting so far. It's easy to set up accounts and support was very helpful with all I needed. They went the extra mile and installed for me the PHP X-Ray extension I need for my work. Performance-wise I was surprised at how fast it is for shared hosting. PHP and MYSQL speed is very good, the only downside is upload speed via FTP, SFTP or HTTP. For some reason, it's not more than 1.5 MB/s. The support couldn't fix it. I can live with that but fixing this would speed up my workflow. I'm very pleased so far and I hope they'll keep high standards for the future. Definitely recommended hosting.

2x faster then SiteGround SiteGround announcing they're moving from cPanel to SiteTools. Unaccaptable for our situation. Found NoFrillsCloud by Googling hosting in Singapore (good for Australia/India visitors). (1) Surprised it's literally 2x faster then SiteGround which was using Google Cloud servers (2) First transferred over backup from old host onto NoFrills. Then changed DNS IP's in CloudFlare. Few mins later, the Wordpress site was loading from NoFrills. SSL (https) was also immediately working once clicked "AutoSSL" button in cPanel.

Excellent support! Excellent support from both sales and technical team. They patiently guide me through my problems and answer my question in timely manner. Even proactively provide me with help when there's a problem with my credit card payment without me asking.
