Who is Emerald cloud hosting?
Emerald Cloud Hosting or ECH is a new Web and cloud hosting platform, created by a Belgian young guy Tjebbe Lievens. He started at the end of 2014 to build the ECH platform. After the first beta release half of 2015, he began in December 2015 with a new version.
Why Emerald Cloud Hosting?
With ECH, we want to try to make the cloud cost efficient and comfortable. We want to try to use as much as possible new software. So we give our customers a choice between Nginx - Apache or Nginx - PHP-fpm or Nginx only (storage). Or we give everyone free SSL certificates through the Lets Encrypt foundation. With our awesome build in tools want we to try to make deploying websites much easier, safer and faster. Security is also a point where we want to work very hard on.
What is Emerald Cloud Hosting?
Emerald Cloud Hosting is an entirely managed and unmanaged hosting provider. So we try to give expert support (paid/managed hosting) to help you build and debug your websites. Off course, we also have essential free support. All our hosting packages are paid hourly, and You pay only the resources you need and use. So we also want to try to let our customers think about their security, you can create your SFTP or SSH account, but you pay for it hourly. Don't need that? Suspend that account in your control panel. You're saving money, and there is one option less in the security list.
