Affiliate Program – The Low Down
There’s never a dull moment when you run an ISP – Internet Service Provider business, speaking with clients on a daily basis you start to get a feel for what businesses need.
Our resellers have been screaming out to have a suitable platform to be able to refer clients that they think may be better suited directly engaging with our team. Other resellers don’t specifically want to resell hosting services and would like the option to simply refer clients to us directly. Then other SMB’s simply like to refer new business our way because of how we support and help their business grow and trust us enough to refer their friends, families and business associates to benefit from our services.
Announcing free SSL certificates for all shared hosting accounts including SMB, Reseller and Reseller client accounts.
Everyone loves free stuff and a free SSL certificate securing your website fits right into that equation.
Yes, the old adage stands true ‘you get what you pay for’ is always right but in this instance, it really comes down to what do you really need for your website?
If your running an eCommerce store/shopping cart then you should always purchase an SSL certificate. This will insure your site for the potential of fraudulent activity taking place if the SSL fails to secure the data being shared between the site visitor and your website; depending on the amount of insurance cover you would like, this also determines what sort of SSL would be best suited to your needs.
Let’s take a look at the options available.
A Story Of Automated Backups & Self Service Restores
We’re always on the lookout to improve services and deliver incredible value to clients. Recently we introduced three new SMB shared hosting plans specifically designed to cater for a range of business uses; from small Start-Ups to Established businesses and Pro packages catering to all business types.
In designing these new packages we consulted heavily with clients really listening to pain points on how we could help our SMBs manage their data better. A strong theme kept surfacing – the management of backups and file restores was an area desperately needing improvement.
The Old Way: Clunky Backups & Restores
By default, cPanel provides a very basic method for backing up your hosted data, which is the all or nothing approach. These backups live in the same hosting space as your site files and can become excessively data-heavy, consuming a large chunk of your allocated hosted storage space if not regularly removed.
When you revert to a previous backup in cPanel, it actually overwrites all the current data (so it’s gone forever!) which means that it isn’t possible to simply restore a specific file, email or DB.
This only left you with the painstaking option of downloading the entire backup to your desktop, digging through all those files and folders and trying to find the data you actually need. Clearly not an ideal scenario, not to mention very time-consuming.
