IBM’s decision to buy out SoftLayer brings a lot of interesting intersections to light when it comes to traditional enterprise level computing, merging with the fairly new business model of automated infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) computing.

I recently took the plunge and signed up for a Twitter account more out of curiosity then anything else. I had heard a lot about it and people I know had Twitter accounts, but I did not really see much of a use for it as a tool to use at work. So, at first […]

I’d like to take some time to discuss the new Bailout System we’ve just released. If you’re a client, you can access the system through our Leap Control Panel. Simply select your server and initiate the Bailout Mode. The system reboots your dedicated server and then uses PXE (Netboot) to boot it into the bailout […]

A short while ago, Zak Boca, our beloved President, CEO and head Pug groomer, floated the idea of launching a community forum so that our customers can interact with each other (and ourselves) in an open-to-the-public medium. SingleHop is a family, and we have always striven to make that clear: We’re more than just a […]

Until recently, choosing a control panel for your dedicated server was a fairly simple process. If you were using a Linux operating system on your server, you used cPanel, and if you were using Windows, you used Plesk. In theory, you could also choose to run your server without a control panel, but there’s very […]
