FastSpring uses a 3rd-party monitoring service as a second method of gaining insight into our servers’ and stores’ performance. This piece of our technical infrastructure allows an independent, detailed view of server and store uptime and other statistics. Over the last six months the service has reported uptime including scheduled maintenance of 99.98%.
One important part of this service is geographical testing, showing store performance for multiple locations around the world. It also provides host-independent advanced warning services, along with notification services to cell phones, SMS and email.
We deploy a globally-distributed 3rd-party DNS service with 100% uptime. This service enables enhanced speed of domain lookup and resolution across the globe, with built-in fail-safes for individual DNS nodes. A globally-distributed service for DNS resolution reduces latency, scales for audience size and geography, and provides an additional layer of security for web applications.
All FastSpring stores are served securely over HTTPS using a 256-bit encryption certificate provided by Symantec. Dedicated servers handle SSL requests to speed up transaction processing. FastSpring hosted stores are in full compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard, independently verified.
