We strive to maintain Jumpseller always running. You can check our yearly uptime statistics:
Jumpseller uses the external company Monitis to monitor our infra-structure performance.
"Monitis™ was founded in 2006 with the goal of providing the best cloud-based, agentless monitoring product on the market. We built a talented team that supports our customer base from offices in the US, Germany and Armenia.

With 30+ monitoring locations worldwide, we send 50,000 alerts and performs 80-plus multi-layer network (MLN) checks every day. More than 300,000 websites, servers and applications rely on our powerful technology."
Where are Jumpseller servers located?
For example, if you are in Chile:
your page is rendered and served from Ireland
your images, css files, js files are cached and served from the closes server (at this moment in São Paulo)
How secure are your servers?
We build on top of Amazon Web Services (AWS), the same infra-structure which supports the Amazon.com.
The AWS cloud infrastructure is housed in AWS’s highly secure data centers, which utilize state-of-the art electronic surveillance and multi-factor access control systems. Data centers are staffed 24x7 by trained security guards, and access is authorized strictly on a least privileged basis. All personnel must be screened when leaving areas that contain customer data. Environmental systems in the data centers are designed to minimize the impact of disruptions to operations. And multiple geographic regions and Availability Zones allow you to remain resilient in the face of most failure modes, including natural disasters or system failures.
I will have a high traffic to my store, what to take in consideration?
We employ web cache to store a previous version of a store, elements such as the site itself and images are handled by extremely fast memmory to handle multiple requests and reduce the server's CPU usage and therefore relieve stress on that end. Web caches reduce the amount of information that needs to be transmitted across the network, as information previously stored in the cache can often be re-used. This reduces bandwidth and processing requirements of the web server, and helps to improve responsiveness for users of the web.
Knowing this, your Jumpseller store is protected against slow downs due to high demand of users, if you think you will have hundreds of requests/second then you should notify us in advance so we can take the our measures.
How many visits are required to slow down or shut down my site?
A lot! you have to mind the amount of unique requests per second to measure capacity, if you think your store will generate something like this during a day: 250requests x 60secs x 60min x 24hours = 21 600 000 requests per day. To get to this number something extraordinary has to be happening to your store, like being on a brodacasted show on TV or a flash sale widely published where you predict high demand, but actually we have never got near that number before, if we ever do, we will take the needed measures to be over the ordinary capacity to ensure the best service possible. In short, our infrastructure is overcapped for each store's regular needs.
