Why choose Mezzo Host?
Here are a few reasons to consider when choosing the right Canadian web hosting company for your website and/or email needs.
High Demand Web Hosting Servers
Our web hosting servers are carefully and specifically tuned to greatly improve the performance of all of the websites hosted with Mezzo Host, especially websites using database-driven platforms such as WordPress, Moodle and Drupal. Our Apache and Linux adjustments apply the best practices in web performance to websites and web media assets without you needing to make any changes.
All our servers’ disk storage relies on RAID which provides redundancy by writing all data to two or more drives. We can replace our hard and data without any interruption of service. Our web hosting server backups and web server disk sector synchronisations can be performed while our web hosting servers are online so it causes no interruption.
So even if any hard drive did fail, no data would be lost.
Layered Web Security
We have a comprehensive and proactive security system that protects web sites and web applications hosted on our web hosting servers from all sorts of web attacks. We run daily security checks and audits looking for signs of any server or website intrusion. We also employ extensive PHP, FTP and SSH Hardening, daily virus and malware scanning and we keep PHP and Apache up to date.
We utilise a strong server firewall that controls how traffic should be handled in certain conditions, filters illegitimate packets for various types of connections, and actively monitors a mixture of traffic patterns to known attack vector strategies.
We backup our web hosting servers every night!
Our web hosting server backups and web server disk sector synchronisations are performed while the servers are online so it causes no interruption to the regular operation of the websites hosted with us, even on a busy server at a busy time. All our server disk storage is completely hot-swappable so if any disk fails, no data is lost, and we can replace the disk and data without any interruption of service.

The idea is to transfer as much of the control and responsibility of managing your website to you.
