Optimised For Your Application

GURU Shared and Dedicated Hosting runs with application-specific features delivering next-level performance improvements which simply aren’t possible in traditional mixed environments.

Your application - faster with GURU

The underlying GURU software stack works in harmony with many popular applications to bring the operations of application and web server ever closer together.

This unique approach means much of your content can be delivered at blazing-fast speeds, right from the front edge, without even needing to engage website code such as PHP.

Even for those applications which do not yet directly interface with the web server, security and performance configurations are utilised to ensure an optimum experience.
