Some people ask me whether they should use PHP 4 or PHP 5. I always recommend PHP 5. I do this because I am big in keeping up to date. I usually update my servers at least once a week, more if I get the time. PHP 4 is not going to be patched, under […]

This is a touchy subject, which is why you won’t likely find many dedicated hosting company managers and owners openly addressing this topic, instead instructing their sales reps to find ways to jump around the subject. Our take is that it’s common sense, and therefore no reason to avoid the topic! If you follow the […]

We’ve brought you two new ways to get up when your server knocks you down: Server Bailout System and Free Priority Response.

Like summer songs, technologies have their own life-cycles. Jay-Z’s ‘Young forever’, and Black Eyed Pea’s ‘I Gotta Feeling’ seem bound to dominate 2010′s pop music summer charts. However, once fall and winter begin to swoop in newer and maybe even catchier songs will begin to take their place. Cloud computing is one of those technologies […]

I began working on the Internet as an entrepreneur back in 1999, just dabbling around running websites.
