Top Reasons to Ditch Your Shared Hosting Service

Top Reasons to Ditch Your Shared Hosting Service

When you’re in need of hosting, whether it be for a website or any other purpose, having a quality server is a must. After all, the right server will help to minimize downtime and ensure your users have the best experience possible.

When it comes to hosting, there are two very common options to consider: You can either choose a shared hosting service (where you share your hosting with other users in exchange for a lower price), or you can opt for a dedicated server that’s all yours.

While a shared server can be cheaper than dedicated hosting, there are many potential drawbacks to a shared hosting service that you may want to avoid.

Your resources are limited

One of the biggest drawbacks to using a shared hosting service is that your resources will be much more limited; that’s because you’ll be sharing all your server’s resources (storage, RAM, processor speed, etc.) with the other users who are on your server. This could result in slower page load times and other issues with your user experience.

Your security might suffer

Another potential drawback to consider when it comes to having a shared server is your security. When you’re sharing all your resources with other people (and people you don’t know, at that), you could be putting your information at risk. More than likely, you will be at a greater risk of falling victim to a data breach or even a distributed denial of service attack when you’re on a shared server.

You can’t customize much

Another major disadvantage to being aware of when it comes to shared hosting is the lack of customization. When you select a shared server option, you’re pretty much at the mercy of what the hosting company has to offer, since you’ll be sharing your server with others. As a result, you’ll have generic settings and very little in the way of customization opportunities. You might not be able to provide your users with the tailored experience you desire.

What about dedicated hosting?

With all of these potential drawbacks in mind, it may be worth second-guessing any decision you may have made in favor of a shared server. For many, the drawbacks simply aren’t going to be worth the slight cost savings.

Believe it or not, you may not have to spend much more money to purchase a dedicated server instead. By shopping around and choosing the right hosting company for your needs, you can get the best value for your money and still end up with a dedicated server that you don’t have to share with others.

Shared hosting and dedicated hosting are two common options when it comes to obtaining a server for a website or other purpose. Just be sure to carefully weigh the pros and cons before making a decision. And if you’re looking for a great deal on a dedicated server, check out CorelloHosting today.

Climate Control in Data Centers: Why It Matters

Climate Control in Data Centers: Why It Matters

When shopping for a dedicated server, it’s important to gather as much information not just about the server specs themselves, but about the data center where your server will be located. After all, even quality server hardware can suffer from poor performance if it’s kept in a data center without proper ventilation and climate control. This is especially true in warmer and more humid climates. By having a better understanding of the importance of climate control in server data centers, you can make an informed decision when it comes to your next dedicated server purchase.

Humidity Control

Humidity control is a vital aspect of climate control. When temperatures get too high and moisture content becomes elevated, this can be a recipe for disaster in a dedicated server bay. The more moisture and humidity in the air, the greater the chances that your server hardware could short out or be otherwise adversely affected by moisture. Over time, high moisture content can even lead to corrosion and rust in your server hardware, putting you at risk of unexpected downtime and other major problems. When a data center is climate controlled, you can rest assured that humidity levels are kept to an ideal level (usually around 50 percent), which will reduce the risk of your server’s hardware being damaged by moisture.

Temperature Control

In addition to humidity control, temperature control is extremely important when it comes to the performance of your dedicated server. Excessively high or low temperatures can cause your server to either overheat or slow down, which will obviously have an effect on performance. If you’re using your server to host a website, for example, you might find that your page loading times are slow or that users are experiencing other issues with accessing your site. When a data center is temperature controlled, you’ll never have to worry about extreme temperatures affecting your hardware and thus your performance.

CorelloHosting’s Data Centers

CorelloNetworks takes great pride in maintaining our data centers meticulously. Our data centers are located throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia and all of them are carefully climate controlled to maximize performance. Humidity levels are kept at ideal levels, and there are even backups and redundancies in place to ensure that temperatures are under control at all times. This includes backup power generators for our HVAC systems in the event of a power outage. Ultimately, our goal is to make sure that your server hardware has optimized performance by being in the ideal environment. All of this, in addition to our 24/7 security at our data center locations, means you can trust us with your hosting needs.

Don’t overlook the importance of climate control when it comes to your dedicated server. To find out more about our data centers or to inquire about a dedicated server that will suit your needs, reach out to our team today. We’d be happy to answer any questions you may have and get you set up with a new server.

CorelloHosting Becomes One of First Dedicated Hosts to Offer New Xeon Platinum 8160

CorelloHosting Becomes One of First Dedicated Hosts to Offer New Xeon Platinum 8160

CorelloHosting has become one of the world’s first dedicated hosting companies to deploy and offer servers based on Intel’s brand-new Xeon Silver & Xeon Platinum processors. With every server including best-in-class distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) protection at no charge, the new Xeon Silver & Xeon Platinum-based servers are available now at the company’s top-tier data centers in the Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles and Miami. With a standard 100% uptime service level agreement and a network blend of premium carriers, CorelloHosting focuses on providing the most reliable possible service to every client at attractive prices.

“We’re happy to report that we have started offering dedicated servers with the new Xeon Silver & Xeon Platinum processors,” CorelloHosting CEO and founder Kareem Stephenson said, “This new generation of Xeons represents a real leap over all successful prior Xeon Series processors family, with some attractive new virtualization-related features, higher maximum core and thread counts, and boosted memory throughput, as well. We’re proud to be among the first to put these new CPUs into service, and we think many of our clients are going to benefit greatly from this.”

Intel’s long-running Xeon family of processors is designed, in contrast to its end-user-directed Celeron, Pentium, and Core CPUs, to power data center-based servers and other computers tasked with staying online and responsive no matter what happens. As such, the processors of the Xeon line typically follow the company’s other offerings in certain respects, as they are put through even more rigorous testing and certification before being judged fit for market.

At the end of March, Intel unveiled the latest members of the Xeon line in the form of a fourth generation of the E5 family. Making use of their 14 nanometer lithography process for the first time in E5 line, the new CPUs also include innovative power-saving features that further improve their energy efficiency.

On the performance front, the new Xeons are just as promising, with up to 22 cores per processor now hosting as many as 44 hardware threads, an improvement of over 20% compared to the previous generation. With memory performance also having been upgraded by over 10% and new virtualization and security features likewise attracting attention, the new E5 v4 is already regarded as one of the more compelling Xeon launches of recent years.

CorelloHosting customers can now configure their own Intel Xeon server, choosing from the new Xeon Silver & Xeon Platinum processors or any of a number of other attractive options. With a profound commitment to reliability and uncompromising availability, CorelloHosting offers free, standard DDoS protection, a 100% service level agreement, and a strategic, high-performing network connectivity blend.

Key Differences Between Shared Hosting and Dedicated Hosting

Key Differences Between Shared Hosting and Dedicated Hosting

When business owners plan to launch or upgrade their e-commerce site, they will often be presented with the issue of choosing dedicated or shared hosting. There are key differences between shared hosting and dedicated hosting so it is important to do the research before making a choice. Below is a guide on the key differences between shared hosting and dedicated hosting:

Sites Hosted on the Server: With a shared hosting package, there are other sites that are hosted on the server along with your website. A dedicated hosting plan means that your website is the only site hosted on the server.

Bandwidth or Disk Space: With shared hosting, the amount of disk space and bandwidth you are allotted is limited because there are others sharing the server. You will be charged if you surpass your allotted amount. With dedicated hosting, bandwidth and disk space are dedicated to you only so there is no sharing and no limitations on the amount of space available space.

Costs: With shared hosting, server resources are shared among several users, so operating costs are divided up among the users making it cheaper. Because a dedicated server is dedicated solely to one user, it cost more.

Required Technical Skills: With shared hosting, you will not require any technical skills as maintenance and security are managed by the shared hosting provider. With a dedicated server, you will need webmaster skills to set up, administer, and manage the server. However, fully managed dedicated hosting plans are available which will be more expensive.

Security: With shared hosting, the hosting company installs firewalls and server security applications and programs. Securing a dedicated server will be your responsibility. You will be able to control the security programs you install and because you are the only one on the server there are fewer chances of acquiring viruses, malware, and spyware. There is a higher risk with shared hosting because of others using the same server.

Blacklisting Of Website: In a shared server, there is more of a risk of being blacklisted by search engines because someone else on the server engaging in such practices as spamming may get the entire IP address blacklisted. On a dedicated server, you will not get blacklisted unless you engage in unethical internet practices.

Server Performance and Response Time: On shared hosting, with other sharing the same resources, allot of traffic can be generated which could drain resources such as bandwidth which could lead to slow response time and slow loading time. This does not happen on a dedicated server because you are not sharing resources.

Level of Control: A dedicated server offers more control over the server as they can add their preferred programs, applications, and scripts. You will have improved flexibility and security which is very beneficial.

The hosting type that you choose will depend on your budget, server and website needs, and the amount control that you desire. No matter which type of server hosting you choose, it is important to make an informed decision.

CorelloHosting Hurricane Irma Special Weather Statement

CorelloHosting Hurricane Irma Special Weather Statement

CorelloHosting & CorelloNetworks Cable and Broadband is currently monitoring Hurricane Irma, and we are beginning preparations in order to minimize service disruptions to our customers in the event that this storm affects our service areas. Irma is forecasted to impact the continental United States in south Florida late this weekend, however, the exact track is very likely to change so we will continue to prepare in all our Southeast, and mid-Atlantic Datacenters, and closely monitor this dangerous storm. We are taking the following steps to minimize any potential service interruptions:

  1. Portable and backup generators are being secured in coastal areas, and being topped off with fuel supplies.
  2. Fuel, clean up equipment, and restoration supplies are beginning to be stockpiled.
  3. Additional field resources are on standby to conduct post-storm damage assessments and quickly begin restoration activities.
  4. Critical systems and infrastructure are being secured to withstand potential water and hurricane force wind damage in flood prone areas.

Customers can find important information and tips to prepare for a major storm by visiting the NOAA.gov website, by clicking here.

What to expect following a major storm: 

In the event of a power outage or damage to our cable lines, high-speed data, video, and phone service may be interrupted. Immediately following the storm, we will have resources that will assess all of our cable lines, and begin work to restore services as quickly as possible.

Please note that following the storm, there may be instances where CorelloNetworks Cable & Broadband cable systems are functioning, however, customers could be without service due to commercial power outages. Please check with your local power company for electrical outages.

Customers should never attempt to climb poles or attempt repairs of downed cable lines as they risk severe injury or death, particularly since our cable lines often accompany electrical lines which carry high voltage. 

To contact us with additional questions, check outage status, or to report a downed line, customers can visit our website, download our CorelloConnect Mobile Care application from the Apple or Google Play Store, or call us via normal customer service numbers or via the emergency numbers provided within the Connect Mobile Care App

We will continue to provide periodic updates over the next few days, and our thoughts are with the communities that may be impacted by this storm.

Dedicated Server / Co-Location / VOIP/ VPS Servers / & Shared Hosting Customers

As you may have heard, Hurricane Irma is currently on track to affect Florida this weekend. As with all storms, CorelloHosting, Inc. has been working diligently to prepare ourselves for the heavy rains and the wind that a storm of this size entails.

Due to this ongoing situation, please request non-critical updates and report current issues before 9/9/17 or after 9/12/17. During this time, if you believe your server is inaccessible, read up on how our IPMI service may be able to help.

We will be staffed and available during the storm to handle any potential issues that arise, and have tested and verified all of our emergency infrastructures to ensure all services remain up and available. We have also made the requisite staffing changes to ensure that our support remains uninterrupted and available for all clients.

Depending on the severity of the storm, we may disable our phone systems to focus our support staff on tickets and live chats, but if we do so, such a change would be posted on all of our social media accounts, and a recording stating the reason placed on the phone system itself. In addition, while we will have staff available during the storm, priority will be placed on existing service requests and procedures, and any new orders/modifications may be delayed until after the storm has passed.

Why the Location of Your Dedicated Server’s Data Network Matters

Why the Location of Your Dedicated Server’s Data Network Matters

When you’re shopping around for hosting—whether it’s a website, blog, eCommerce store, or even for gaming—there’s no denying the fact that speed matters. However, what many people fail to realize as they shop for a dedicated server is that the specific location of the hosting company’s data centers can have a direct impact on their server speed. At CorelloHosting, we have eleven prime data center locations in

  •  Philadelphia, PA
  •  New York, NY
  •  Miami, FL
  •  Los Angeles, CA
  •  Chicago, IL
  •  Phoenix, AZ
  •  Atlanta, GA
  •  Washington, DC
  •  Singapore, Asia
  •  Tokyo, Japan
  •  London, United Kingdom

this allows us to provide low latency to several locations worldwide and a better overall experience, no matter what you’re using our hosting for.

Understanding Location and Latency

So how does location affect latency, and what, exactly, does latency have to do with speed? For starters, latency essentially refers to the amount of lag time that takes place between when you initiate a request for data transfer and when the transfer actually occurs. For example, this is the amount of time that it takes between when you click on a link on your website and when the linked page actually loads. In the time in between, the request is being transferred to the data center at which your dedicated server is hosted.

The farther away your data center is from where your users are located, the higher the latency you’re likely to have. Lower latency will result in faster processing times, which can mean a number of things depending on how you’re using your hosting. For example, if you’re using your dedicated hosting for gaming, low latency will mean less lagging, faster overall game play, and better performance. For website owners, lower latency means users will have an easier time navigating your site. They won’t be frustrated with slow page loading times, which will make them more likely to revisit your site in the future or less likely to leave during their initial visit.

As you can see, low latency is important and the best way to ensure low latency (aside from choosing a great hosting company) is to make sure your data centers are centrally located.

CorelloHosting’s Prime Data Center Locations

At CorelloHosting, we have three excellent data center locations in

  •  Philadelphia, PA
  •  New York, NY
  •  Miami, FL
  •  Los Angeles, CA
  •  Chicago, IL
  •  Phoenix, AZ
  •  Atlanta, GA
  •  Washington, DC
  •  Singapore, Asia
  •  Tokyo, Japan
  •  London, United Kingdom

These are prime locations for both local (North America) and global users (South America, Asia, and Pacific). Not to mention, our data centers have a number of other features that can help to increase speeds and benefit you and your users. This includes 100% uptime service level agreements for cooling and power, enhanced security at each data center location (including round-the-clock security), and climate control redundancies. We are also proud to include the best technical support 24 hours a day, seven days a week to our customers with hosting in either location.

If there was ever any question as to the importance of location when it comes to your hosting data center, hopefully, that has been cleared up here. To find out more about our data center locations or for help in selecting the dedicated server that is right for you, contact CorelloHosting today.
