Rochen provides, fast, highly secure, and incredibly reliable hosting for Joomla sites at an affordable price. As the official host of the joomla.org websites, we are Joomla hosting experts. Backed by a friendly and helpful worldwide 24/7 support team, with a suite of tools to make managing and securing your Joomla site easier, you are in safe hands every minute of the day.
Plans start at only $7.95 per month1 with Free Domain Name for life2 and Instant Activation3 with secure Joomla install included.
With performance being a key focus in the hosting architecture for Rochen's developers and engineers, we ensure that traffic spikes will always be good for your business, without being a problem for Joomla websites.
All of your data - whether it is a core Joomla PHP file, Joomla extension or the Joomla MySQL database - is hosted on incredibly fast and reliable Solid State Drives (SSD) providing incredible levels of performance for your websites.
LiteSpeed is a drop-in replacement for Apache ensuring full compatibility with Joomla. By utilizing LiteSpeed - a web server designed with performance built in from the ground up - your Joomla websites can load at lightning speeds.
With Rochen's unique resource pool technology, dedicated systems resources can be allocated to an individual website with a simple click through the self-service My Rochen portal. This is particularly useful if your Drupal website requires a little extra CPU or RAM but is not yet ready for its own server.
In a world today where Joomla sites are particularly prone to attack, you need the best protection. Rochen's developers and engineers built our next generation hosting platform with a strong security methodology surrounding it, ensuring your Joomla websites stay safe.
Rochen Shield is a Web Application Firewall (WAF) protection system with specific Joomla rule sets to prevent common CSS and SQL injection attacks. Rochen Shield receives daily updates to protect against the latest threats and provides "virtual patching" to further protect Joomla sites.
Shared hosting does not have to mean shared problems. Every website deployed at Rochen is "caged", segregating it from other websites. This provides premium protection, without the costly dedicated plan.
Rochen provides an optional feature allowing for your core Joomla install to be updated automatically. Additionally, at the time of activation a security hardened version of Joomla can be installed at no additional cost.
Rochen believes that your websites deserve features like reliable managed backups, robust hardware and a solid uptime guarantee as which is why they come as standard with our Joomla hosting.
To provide the highest levels of reliability, complete control over the hosting infrastructure is required. Our servers, network switches and even server racks are owned outright by Rochen and not simply rented from another provider as many hosts do. We deploy the latest technologies and ensure our servers are kept lightly loaded. Our engineers monitor the status of all services 24/7 without exception. You have the choice of hosting in either our US or UK data centers.

Working like a time capsule, a Joomla install can be fully rolled back to an earlier date. Additionally, individual files or MySQL databases unrelated to Joomla can be rolled back too. All of your SSD-stored data is backed up everyday to the off-server secure Rochen Vault with restore points spanning 30 days.
By investing in the best possible infrastructure and hiring the smartest engineers, Rochen ensures that actual uptime is generally above 99.9%. In a rare instance where your website may experience more than 0.1% downtime in a given month you will be issued an appropriate account credit.

Your websites also have access to their own individual enhanced cPanel.
Rochen understands that operating highly redundant data centers can have an impact on the environment. Rochen has partnered with Green Mountain Energy, the leading provider of cleaner energy and carbon offsetting solutions, to purchase carbon credits to offset the emissions of our hosting operations.
On behalf of Rochen, Green Mountain will invest in renewable energy sources like wind and solar power as well as biomass facilities - many of which have been setup as a result of their initiatives. Rochen's funding will also provide support for reforestation projects through Green Mountain's relationship with the Pacific Forest Trust. Our emissions levels are reviewed annually and carbon credits adjusted accordingly.
