Our Technology


We employ a range of technologies that help keep our servers exceptionally stable and our customers' web sites super safe. Surprisingly, many hosts don't employ similar technology which can often result in their servers experiencing overloads, downtime, or worse - facing critical security problems such has defacement and hacking. And when the hosts don't provide, customers resort to installing plugins to help with website security, with an unintended consequence of having a slower website.

Don't waste your money on SiteLock, Sucuri, WP Cerber, WordFence Premium, Limit Login Attempts Reloaded, etc.., these are a thing of the past. We include all security features that these paid services and plugins provide, free in all our web hosting plans. There is no need for plugins, security providers, slow websites or worrying about security issues. This allows for us to have PCI DSS Requirement compliant hosting.
Bot Defense
Sites are under constant attack from bad bots who blast your site with fake and bad requests. Our dual firewalls (server & network) keeps them at bay, keeping your site fast, clean & safe from comment/form spam, brute forcing, user enumeration, & hacking.
Virtual Vulnerability Patching
We keep your website secure by automatically patching it with critical security fixes, server side, until your site can get updated. This includes the common CMS systems like WordPress and it's popular plugins.
File/Database Malware Cleaning
If some how malware was to get into your site, we have file change scanning and we scan your website automatically once per week. If we find anything in the files or database, we clean it up automatically, free!
Application Firewalls
To protect our clients even further we have a web application firewall (WAF) to give our shared web hosting customers protection of their websites, applications, and data from malicious users seeking to exploit vulnerabilities in web based software. Plus we have dual firewalls with IP Reputation Blocking to block bad IPs network wide from the start.
Account Isolation
We have a virtualized, per-user file system that uniquely encapsulates each customer, preventing users from seeing each other on the server and viewing sensitive information. This prevents a large number of attacks, including most privilege escalation and information disclosure attacks.
PHP Patching
PHP represents more than 79.2% of all server-side scripts. Because of this wide application usage, PHP is constantly exploited by hackers, making sites vulnerable. We keep our customers and servers safe by patching all PHP versions against known vulnerabilities from 4.4 to 8.1 – even those versions unsupported by the PHP.net community.
Email protection
Two different anti-virus programs scanning incoming email for 0-day malware, advanced spam emails, and linux, mac, windows, MS Word, and android viruses, with over 11 million signatures. Out of the box ClamAV that most hosting companies use, do not protect from 0-day/MS word malware and on average only has 5 million signatures. The Official Clamav signatures used by most have a detection rate of less than 10% for 0-day malware.
Secure Control Panel
Our custom built control panel allows us to run our servers without cPanel. This makes the server more secure and run faster with less resource usage. If your website account gets compromised, the attackers will not have access to your Email and SSL files, like they would with cPanel.
Secure Access
Each hosting account can be accessed via FTP SSL, SFTP, SSH and a secure SSL protected web based file manager.

Respect for privacy and data 

The company belongs to its founders and its employees. Here, your data is processed by software developed to make sure that it complies with the GDPR and California laws to respect your privacy, and for PCI DSS compliant credit card storage.  We have full control over our services and data center from end to end to ensure data security and confidentiality, with all data stored locally in our own data center (for our USA data center) where we have control over it. All credit card data is stored at our credit card processor (token storage), so none of our employees can view full credit card numbers.


We run redundant monitoring servers that monitor each piece of equipment on our network. Our monitoring is so advanced it will notify our support staff if there is any issues with our switches, routers, servers, bandwidth, etc. so we can proactively handle potential problems. The system can even automatically rectify any small service issues such as web or database server crashing. This type of proactive monitoring ensures our clients the most possible uptime available.

When your email is hosted with us we also monitor email subjects from your wordpress website sent to you from free plugins like WordFence and Limit Login Attempts as well as form spam. When our system sees an email with that plugin subject and that they have blocked an IP address for too many failed logins, we parse the email for that IP address and then add it to our network wide IP blocks so that the IP address is blocked from all our servers and cannot attack any of our of the websites we host. When a form is submitted on your site, we run its contents through a spam scanner (same one that checks emails) to see its spam score, and if it scores super high, then we block that IP from our network.

Network & Data Center

We have diverse fiber with redundant route optimized BGP bandwidth (via Noction) peering with providers CrownCastle and Hurricane Electric. In our data center we use redundant high-end Cisco routers and switches to connect us to the Internet. These routers are continually active and will automatically redistribute Internet traffic load using in-house BGP routing optimization software, resulting in minimum to zero downtime, lower latency, less jitter, less packet loss and better performance from first mile through middle mile. Hurricane Electric is peering in Los Angeles and CrownCastle is peering in Orange County, this separate peering and routes allows redundancy if the LA area has an Internet issue.

Our green data center is environmentally friendly in design and powered via onsite solar. We built our green data center, network and servers from the start to use the lowest amount of energy possible using the latest green design techniques, no other hosting company can do what we do without starting from scratch.

  • Viridio owned and operated on-site Tier 3+ data center
  • Redundant, Multi-Homed Latency/Loss Optimizing Bandwidth via Noction
  • Redundant Cisco routers running full BGP routes on IPv4 and Native IPv6
  • Redundant Cisco firewalls Network Wide IP Reputation Threat Defense to block bad IPs
  • Redundant Cisco switches
  • Redundant N+1 Power and Cooling
  • Redundant Network connections in all servers
  • Redundant Power Supplies in all servers
  • Redundant Clustered virtual SAN (storage) for Web and VPS hosting using Samsung Data Center SSDs
  • Each power supply (two in each server) is plugged into an ATS (automatic transfer switch) which then plugs into two different UPSs (thus each server has 4 UPSs)

Servers & Virtualization

To save energy we use virtualization that allows us to replace individual physical servers and replace them with "virtual machines," increasing the physical servers efficiency and shrinking our data centers’ server footprint, cooling needs and electricity usage. Viridio servers are running energy efficient processors, which use less power and generate less heat. Using KVM virtualization technology allows us to reduce cooling and electrical requirements with over a 30:1 ratio of virtual servers to physical servers. We also use a virtual SAN with Samsung Data Center SSDs local to the servers using cross server replication, to allow our physical storage and power requirements to be reduced while allowing higher uptime and better redundancy.


We have built many custom software systems for our business allowing us to build needed features, provide high uptime and have security in mind.
  • Our custom built control panel allows us to run our servers without cPanel hogging resources, having security leaks and allows Email & DNS to be redundant and not on the same servers servers hosting websites. And since DNS and Email services run on different servers then the website (unlike cPanel), so if either the DNS, Email or Website services have an issue or needs maintenance downtime for updates, it will not effect the other services.
  • Our custom spam filtering control panel allows you to whitelist, blacklist, disable spam filtering, change the filtering level, and more. Plus you can see every email that was accepted or rejected (see why it was rejected) and resend them to your inbox if needed. Its built with two different anti-virus programs scanning incoming email and uses dozens of filters with over 20 different checks. These checks include DNSBLs, keyword scanning, header checking, brute force blocking, URLBLs, SpamAssassin, an advanced heuristic anti-spam scanner, SPF, DKIM, Greylisting, BATV, connection checking, remote SMTP server profiling, and many others.
  • Trusted Email Replies ensures you don't miss an important email. It prevents spam filtering and blocking of any incoming email reply to an email you replied to or you sent out.
  • Advanced Image and PDF OCR (Optical character recognition/Automated Text Extraction) to look for spam in images and PDFs attached to inbound emails.
  • Our custom built Anycast DNS hosting with multiple DNS servers located across continents, allows multiple DNS server failures while keeping DNS lookups for your domain name online and close to your end users. This also allows for many types of DNS records to be available to our customers including ANAME/CNAME flatting.
  • Our custom built backup solution stores all backups off of the web servers and is included free for all accounts. It includes multiple daily backups of website files, databases and email with 30 day retention. Plus we don't charge for any amount of restores, and a customer can restore files or databases right from our control panel.
  • We use CloudLinux for our web hosting OS which allows us to maintain maximum cyber security and compliance by rapidly patching vulnerabilities (CVE's), and to keep production Linux systems updated with the latest fixes without lots of reboots by using KernelCare. This includes using LibCare to keep shared libraries like OpenSSL and glibc updated with the latest patches.
