Quality hosting is probably harder to sell than the design services, which are more up front and obvious.
Web site design is very visual. Designers can white board, story board, and show you successful sites they have created in the past.
What can a web hosting company show you, visually, that they are unique as well as the being the company for you?
WordPress brute force attacks have started cripling servers all over the internet. Our cloudlinux servers have managed to stay up which higher then normal cpu and ram usage. Other servers without cloudlinux haven’t faired so well. We started investigating these attacks on April 9th 2013, captured packets immediately to get the payload of these brute…
We receive a number of phone calls and emails for requests for quotes and for proposals as a SoftLayer Certified Partner.
One may ask what does a SoftLayer Certified Partner do?
While SoftLayer has a variety of Certified Partners, Dynamic Net, Inc. is a SoftLayer Certified Partner that specializes in server security and server administration.
In the 1972 movie, The Godfather, we hear Tom stating, “This is business, not personal!”
I lost track of how many times I’ve heard that phrase or variations like it to justify business decisions whether it be employer vs. employee or business vs. customer.
If your focus is building and maintaining relationships, the “vs” should always be a red flag. If your focus is on the dollar, then you might miss the “vs.” part of the equation.

Imagine reading Service Suspension – Ongoing unanswered abuse complaints thinking to yourself, the person is in a jamb…. I hope they get someone who can really help them (maybe we could, not sure), then later on reading the person who initiated the post also runs a “All you can Eat” (i.e. unlimited support tickets, unlimited labor time) server administration business where they advertise a long list of what they can do for you for just $15.00 per month. I guess, they are so packed with work they could not solve their own problems.
Imagine, for just $15.00 per month you “24/7/365 USA-Based Technical Support” plus “24/7/365 Server Monitoring (5 Minute Intervals)” of your servers plus “Guaranteed 15 Minute Response On Monitoring Alerts” and so much more… sounds like a great deal? Right?
If you are starting your own business — be it freelancing part time or something you hope would allow you to leave your full time job, one of the questions you will face is “How do I determine my rate?” or “How much should I charge for my work?”

CloudLinux is an operating system based on CentOS and OpenVZ bringing a more secure, out of the box, operating system which allows a shared hosting environment to mimic a VPS-like environment for each hosting customer.
if you could imagine a refrigerator whose contents were a complete mess or even a room that was an organizational disaster, then open the door, through in a magic ball of yarn, close the door, and then open the door again… only to be amazed about how well everything is organized and clutter free, you would get a visual of the what CloudLinux allows you to do on the server level.
Over the past several years of working with small business owners and WordPress, we are often asked, “How often should I log into WordPress?” or related statements that begs the question.
Let me share with you some reasons as to why you should be logging into your WordPress content management system — CMS — or blog as often during the week as you are able to practically do so.
The moral of this story raises the question… what’s your plan B for when there’s no Internet when you need it?
Even though our servers are in secure, reliable, relatively hurricane resistant data centers and we have daily backup of all systems, we did not find out our weak areas until storm Sandy came into our neck of the woods.
Repeat after me, “hackers most often target vulnerabilities, not specific people or companies.” Now, say that over and over again.. and shortly you should come to the conclusion that every single device and application typically has vulnerabilities which makes everyone a target. That’s right, everyone is a potential target — not just the big names,…
