Web host administrators are aware that performance is important for customer satisfaction, but what they don’t know is that performance degradation can be directly related to malware and exploited vulnerabilities on the server. Advanced threats can be difficult to detect, but web hosts must rely on website owners with leased space on the server to stop them. Imunify360 has helped numerous web hosters detect, block, and remediate threats across the entire shared server.
Malware and CPU Spikes
Because shared web servers could host hundreds of customer sites, it leaves hundreds of potential vulnerabilities on the server. Just one site vulnerable to malware injection could result in extensive CPU usage spikes that slow down all other sites on the server. It’s critical for web host providers to stop malware from affecting CPU and memory usage on the server, and this can only be done by monitoring files on the host and blocking malicious executables and scripts.
An accumulation of hacked websites can cause other sites to fail, and this leads to a loss in customer satisfaction and brand reputation. Being branded as a slow host provider is a revenue-impacting event that could take years to recover from. It’s critical that web host administrators detect malware quickly and stop it from causing performance degradation.
Imunify360’s Positive Impact on Performance and Malware Detection
A recent case study that proved Imunify360 can greatly improve on performance and malware detection is Guzel Hosting, one of Turkey’s largest web hosting companies. They host over 100,000 websites on shared hosting servers, and hacked sites and malware became an issue that reduced CPU performance and created overhead for administrators. Guzel Hosting decided to install Imunify360 on their servers and saw an immediate improvement.
After Guzel Hosting installed Imunify360, they saw shared server loads drop, which means that they can leverage their unused CPU power to host other sites on these servers. Guzel Hosting can turn a profit on unused CPU power that would otherwise be unavailable due to malware infections. Because performance is better and customers don’t have as many issues with malware, customer satisfaction also increased.
Stop Malware and Profit from CPU Resources
The Guzel Hosting case study proves that Imunify360 provides incredible value to shared web hosts with hundreds of customers. Detect malware before it causes issues, eradicate it from the server and keep customers happy. Not only will customer satisfaction increase, but any preserved CPU power normally exhausted by malware would be free to leverage with additional customers, making Imunify360 a product that helps you increase revenue.
