interGen Standard Performance Tools

Hosting with interGen gives you so much more than just server space for your website!  In addition to dedicated server spaceregular updatessnapshot backups, and outstanding customer service, our Subscription Service provides our clients with key performance tools you won't find with the typical web hosting company.

With each new client, we do a performance analysis to make sure that your site is secure and fast - two metrics that matter to both your users and the search engines.  We also make sure that you have access the analytics that provide you measurable data about when, where, and how users are finding your website.  

Below you can find a list of all the standard performance tools that we include on all our clients websites.   With each new client, we do a performance analysis to make sure that your site is secure and fast - two metrics that matter to both your users and the search engines.  We also make sure that you have access to an analytics dashboard that provides you measurable data about when, where, and how users are finding your website.  

In 2018, Google announced algorithm updates that place far more emphasis on page speed and loading response times than ever before. In addition, 53% of users will leave a website that takes longer than 3 seconds to load. We enable gzip compression on all our clients' websites to save bandwidth and speed up your site.

What is GZIP Compression?

Favicons are quite possibly the smallest part of your site, but it's attention to detail that makes a site stand out. 

We generate favicons for our client's websites based on the simplest version or element of their logo. If you do not have a logo (or your logo is too complex to work as a favicon), we generate one using the branding information we have about your site. 

An SSL certificate is no longer a luxury for your website - it's a necessity!

We install (and automatically renew) SSL certificates on all our client's websites. We also have configured your site to "force SSL," making sure that your website loads securely every time it loads.

Every new website that interGen builds includes an integration with Google Analytics.  However, some of our clients' websites were inherited from other developers and did not come to use with that tracking data installed.  Beginning in 2020, we have confirmed that every one of our clients has Google Analytics integrated with your site - whether we built it 10 years ago or you came to us as a customer just last week.    If you want access to your Google Analytics data, just send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Captcha's are that strange field at the bottom of many website forms (contact us, registration, etc.). The field asks you to prove that you are not a robot. Sometimes completing the captcha is as simple as checking the "I am not a robot" check box. Other times it requires getting a grid of nine pictures. You have to identify all the pictures of a fire hydrant or cross walk or bus or truck or... you get the idea.

When captchas were first developed they were often simple math problems or squiggly letters. In recent years, Google's reCaptcha has been the dominant offering on websites and for several good reasons:
