We’ve Upgraded Our Servers & How It Benefits Our Clients

As part of our commitment to remain on the cutting edge of technology, offering the most up-to-date products, security, and personalized customer service, we are pleased to announce that we have upgraded our web hosting servers to a Managed VPS (Virtual Private Servers) platform exclusively for use by Agate Fire Creative clients.

We’ll spare you the technical specifications, let’s just say, they are awesome!  This upgrade had been a long time in planning as an effort to provide the best possible uptime, speeds, and security for our clients. We believe this was an essential move.

Our new servers are conveniently located in the Midwest, specifically, Ann Arbor, MI (a.k.a. Tree Town). So, it’s not surprising to learn these servers boast FutureServe Green Hosting. An initiative to cut carbon footprints and protect our environment for future generations.

What are the benefits of upgrading?

  • Faster Websites  – Faster Performance. Our Turbo Boost SSD (solid state drive) servers offer your properly optimized WordPress website better performance and faster loading times.
  • Higher Level of Security  – Our new Managed VPS is like having an isolated environment without disruptions from other clients sharing server space and resources. With built-in security enhancements monitoring out-of-date WordPress installs and 100% worry-free Host-Guard Management.
  • Scalability  – We can now offer higher resource limits dedicated solely to your websites with room for your business’s online growth.
  • Free Secure Socket Layers (SSL) Certificates – Adding vital encryption protecting your user’s data, and keeping it out of hackers’ hands.

We’re excited to have partnered with such an amazing and award-winning team. Thank you A2 Hosting for your dedication and support during this transition.

Prior to this upgrade we created backups of all client sites and confirmed compatibility. However, should you notice any issues with your website please do not hesitate to reach out to us or submit a support ticket.

Thank you again for the continued opportunity to serve your website needs.
