A Bolt™️ is like a container for your websites. It defines the technical environment, settings and storage. Besides your environments, it contains blazing-fast databases, built-in support for Git, SSH, SFTP and command-line tools for WordPress, Magento, and Drupal.

Servebolt Bolts are easily managed through the web interface of our Admin Panel. They are secured by our daily non-intrusive backups. SSL certificates are also created and managed within our Bolts.

Each Bolt includes by default five (5) website environments for production websites. On top, you can add as many development or staging environments as you like. Each environment has separate access credentials and can be configured separately.

Bolts are what cloud servers, VPS, dedicated servers, and shared hosting want to be. They are much faster, with better performance, scalability, and reliability. Bolts are the best hosting solution ever.

How do our Bolts compare?

What’s the difference between Servebolt Bolts and other hosting alternatives?

An image illustrating a campsite
Shared HostingVPSDedicated server
Shared hosting compares to a tent on a campsite. You only have few resources, and it’s super annoying when your neighbours decide to throw a party. And it only fits up to 4 people.A VPS is like having an apartment in an apartment building. You have your own space, but it’s still small. Room for 1-15, but you have to refurbish and maintain the inside of your apartment yourself.Just like with a house, a dedicated server is comfortable. Noisy neighbours don’t matter, and you have all the space to yourself. You can host a party with up to 100 people, but no one is there to clean up after you. You also have to maintain the house, all the time.
ContainersCloud HostingBolt
Living in a container is cheap, and you can always add one more container to fit more people. But, living in a container will never be comfortable. And it was not intended as a living arrangement in the first place. Hosting your site with containers is just the exact same thing.Hosting your site in the cloud is living in a yet-to-finish skyscraper. All the space you need, but not necessarily when you need it. Bathroom on the ground floor, kitchen on the top floor. Unused space in-between. And the cost of maintaining a skyscraper is always a bit foggy.Your site on a Bolt in the Servebolt Cloud is like renting one floor in a skyscraper, with the possibility to host a party in the whole building if you want to. Including rooftop parties. The building is fully maintained, you only need to bring your furniture. All this for one agreed price per month.

Bolt Features

Bolts are easily managed through our Admin Panel. They are secured by our daily non-intrusive backups and deep-level security mechanisms.

Ultra scalable

By default, all Bolts come with Ultra Scalability. Though your Bolt plan may limit the total number of Dynamic Requests a Bolt can guarantee per month, a Bolt does not restrict how many page views or Dynamic Requests can be delivered simultaneously. If you have a Bolt plan with 2 million Dynamic Requests a month and you need to handle 1 million Dynamic Requests one day in that month the scalability of your Bolt will not be the limiting factor.

Unlimited PHP Workers

Bolts don’t limit the amount of CPU that can be used to run PHP and do not have limits on the number of PHP Workers it may use. So unlike many other hosting providers, you will not experience running out of PHP Workers.

Unlimited Bandwidth

All Bolts come with unlimited and unmetered bandwidth. We simply do not measure, track or meter the bandwidth use of a Bolt.

Enterprise Cloudflare CDN included

Servebolt is a certified Cloudflare Enterprise partner and reseller of all Cloudflare services. We also integrate and peer on a networking level to optimise performance between our data centres. Alongside being partners with Cloudflare, we have created our own Enterprise-grade CDNs; Servebolt CDN and Accelerated Domains. Up to five Servebolt CDN hostnames are included for free in our base plan.

Off server administration

Unlike most hosting environments, all Bolts are managed and administered through our Admin Panel which is not running on your Bolt and therefore not consuming resources on the server. This ensures that the Bolt and the websites running on a Bolt have all resources available for performance and scaling and are not consumed by management and administration tasks.
