VPS Or Dedicated Hosting And Your Business

As illustrated by those early photos of the Amazon and Apple offices that we’ve all seen, most businesses understandably start small and then scale up. When and how to scale is an important decision, but ultimately the idea for any business is to increase overall growth. With this in mind, any online business that begins on shared hosting (where all server resources are literally shared between all websites on the server) will aim to migrate …

Ubuntu LTS And Full cPanel® Support

In late 2020, CentOS 8 announced that it would be reaching its end-of-life in December of 2021. This news was rather unexpected in both the open source and web hosting worlds. In response, we have been working towards providing solutions that will not just benefit our Partners and Customers, but also provide options as we move forward together.

NGINX® Caching And cPanel® Version 96

Caching, for our purposes here, is the temporary storage of website files in such a way (and often in various locations) that results in significantly faster website loading times for the end users. As a result, caching also reduces the overall resource usage on the server itself. In other words, when your website utilizes caching it consequently loads much faster for your visitors. NGINX caching is now officially supported in cPanel; let’s talk a little …

Business Email And The Power Of Email Forwarders

Everyone has an email address these days. And the email address you use does, to a certain extent, say a lot about you. For example, [email protected] conveys a different message than [email protected]… with our apologies to anyone that may actually be the owner of either of those email addresses. While your personal email address is generally different from your business email address, a similar set of parameters do exist that convey certain things about you …

The DNS Zone For Beginners

For all intents and purposes, DNS can be considered almost like the internet’s phonebook. At least that’s how it’s most often metaphorically explained. However, your domain’s DNS zone is slightly less like an old yellow pages and much more like the saved contacts list within your cell phone. You enter a phone number and a name to go with the phone number, hit save and then you can promptly forget the phone number because you’ll …

Meditations On Software And UI Updates

As sure as the sun will rise tomorrow, your favorite application, software, or website is going to eventually (and periodically) be redesigned. Odds are, at first, that you aren’t going to initially be a fan of the new design. It’s like when your local grocery store rearranges all the products on the shelves… why isn’t everything exactly where I want it to be?! The simple answer is: because. But there is a much larger answer …
