Hardware
HelioHost is the only exclusively free host we know of that owns its own hardware. Most hosts these days rent dedicated servers for their customers, but HelioHost actually owns both of our physical servers Stevie, and Charlie. Thanks to a generous offer from L.I.S. Colocation, we are able to host Stevie and Charlie at the Hurricane Electric facility in Fremont, California. Hurricane Electric is ranked number one in reliability among datacenters, and is ranked among the top ten facilities in terms of bandwidth connectivity. Stevie is a quad-core rackmount server with eight gigabytes of RAM and an entire terabyte of disk space.

Apache
Apache is the most popular web server software for a reason. It has consistently been proven to be a reliable yet powerful solution for web hosting, and as a consequence is utilized by approximately 60% of the web. HelioHost employs Apache 2.2.15, the latest version of the project, for its performance improvements as well as for its multi-processing modules. Installed Apache modules at HelioHost include FCGID, Frontpage, Include (SSI), Headers, Rewrite, and suPHP. Apache
