What do you get with a Rhombic Networks shared web hosting account, and why is it useful to you? Our accounts include:
Content from your website (except certain file types) is compressed real time to a smaller file size using Apache’s mod_deflate.
What does this mean? Since pages are now smaller, they load that much faster for your visitors. Since you effectively serve smaller files, it also means that much of your monthly transfer (not disk space) gets saved.
This works on all modern browsers without you having to do anything. Of course, you can also turn it off for your domain with a click of button in our web control panel.
MySQL is a fast, easy-to-use, and popular open-source RDBMSs. Rhombic Networks provides MySQL 5, which is faster than ever before, complete with transactions provided by InnoDB and support for stored procedures.
SQLite is a simple, single-file SQL database engine. For those times when you don’t need the complexity of a full network RDBMS, SQLite is lightning fast and easy to use. Rhombic Networks provides bindings for all common languages that we support.
These databases are provided with all Rhombic Networks shared web hosting accounts.
One (1) gigabyte of transfer (that is, 1000 MB) is approximately 100,000 hits to your average website. Bandwidth used over your quota is priced at $0.50/GB.
