Matomo

Privacy Driven Analytics

In today's world, online privacy matters, and that includes for your site visitors as well.

Many site owners and developers are becoming increasingly uncomfortable with the amount and depth of data being collected through the use of the big G's Analytics or 360 programs; some of which has little or no use to a large majority of website owners. The fact that this data is collected and stored by the big G, is one of the main triggers to the EU's GDPR privacy rules.

While we understand that for many, Google Analytics is their go to, in response to the needs for a privacy orientated analytics solution, we offer a Velocity Host hosted Matomo account as part of our website hosting plans.

Matomo is an analytics suite used by the likes of NASA, United Nations, Amnesty International, Red Bull, the European Commission and many more spread over 190 countries.

What about email?

cPanel email can slow down your website hosting when both are on the same platform. This same scenario also means if the web hosting server is experiencing an issue your emails are also affected.

At Velocity Host we’ve learnt over many years to “not to put all your eggs in one basket”. By separating email hosting to a dedicated email only environment, uptime for both web and email hosting is improved and website performance can shine.

For those that need solid, professional grade email service, we offer our best in class Velocity-Mail system, which when bundled with ANY hosting package, delivers a 10% package discount!
