Application Pool Isolation
Every domain on our server is placed in it's own application pool. This provides major advantages such as isolating each domain to it's own web space It also provides protection from other web sites code. If a customer uploads bad code that would normally affect the entire server instead only their application pool is terminated rather than the whole server.
