UnixGuru uses LiteSpeed WebServer

LiteSpeed is a web server that is 9 x faster than apache and uses 85% less memory, meaning that you can serve more visitors faster.

(Performance Benchmarks)

VPS Like Security

Each user has their own virtual filesystem, with their own copy of safe binaries and no access to files that belong to other users. Other users don’t get access to your files either, as they are locked in their own filesystem too.

So the only way that your Joomla install could become compromised will be down to what you do, and not what other customers do.


Security, but flexibility!!

Although the environment is locked down, you can change the version of your PHP, which modules are included with PHP and which settings are in your php.ini, through our PHP selector, which makes the necessary changes to your filesystem and system settings in real-time. In this way, you can test whether your application works better or faster with other versions of PHP, or with specific modules included or excluded.


Patchman automated vulnerability patching

Joomla is often targeted by hackers, who look for old versions of Joomla that are vulnerable to attack and compromise. Customers are often unwilling to keep their sites up to date, as updates can often break websites.

However, unpatched websites will eventually be compromised, and will be broken anyway.

Patchman detects Joomla code which is vulnerable and patches the vulnerability rather than forcing customers to upgrade. Automatically informing the customer of vulnerabilities, it gives them the option of fixing the issue themselves, but will eventually automatically patch the vulnerability.

Keeping customer sites intact minimises the chance of reputation loss, which can so often occur should your site become compromised.

Keeping sites safe, automatically, seriously decreases downtime due to compromise, and keeps server resources for your code, rather than a hackers malicious code.

By swapping attack information with other hosts and honeypots, we are able to stop 99% of malicious traffic from entering our servers.


Comodo WAF

The Web Application Firewall stops brute force attacks in their tracks, as unlike log trawling, a WAF can tell if an attempt to login failed. The WAF also stops many attacks against compromised plugins and older versions of Joomla.


Security RobotSecurity Robot

UnixGuru has a special security robot, that trawls log files and LiteSpeed APIs to find our who’s attacking your blog, and slows them down by working hand in hand with our dynamic “self-configuring” firewall to thwart threats and keep out the bad guys. By looking through log files we can find IPs which are performing slow methodical attacks.



UnixGuru offers Softaculous to install your Joomla with one click.

Softaculous, as well as installing your site, can auto-upgrade your site as new versions come out, and can automatically make a backup when it does so, just in case.


Joomla Suitable Hosting

All of our plans are more than suitable for hosting Joomla.

Joomla Requirements are:-

  • PHP 5.3.10 +, we offer 5.4,5.4, 5.5 & 5.6 via our PHP Selector
  • MySQL5.1 + , we offer MySQL 5.6
  • Apache 2 (with mod_mysql, mod_xml, and mod_zlib), Our LiteSpeed Web-servers offers full compatibility at 9 x the speed.

However if your site gets a lot of traffic, you could even consider our eCommerce hosting packages as they offer lots of RAM and your own dedicated IP address. These packages will exceed the performance of the majority of VPS packages available from other hosts.
