Auto-OS Installer First Step to Bigger Projects

Auto-OS Installer First Step to Bigger Projects

We are excited to announce a feature that our development team has worked very hard to produce: an Automatic Operating System Installer. Our dedicated hosting customers will now be able to re-install the operating system on their dedicated server at their convenience.

Our technicians spent a good amount of time re-installing OS’s for customers and sometimes it required that customers wait for other tasks to be completed. With automatic OS installs available to customers, we can reduce costs and reassign data center technician to other types of work. These costs will be passed down to customers in many ways, as automation typically shows.

Customers don’t have to open a support ticket and will find the “Re-install OS (beta)” function under the OS and Login credentials. This is the most recent of several projects to make unmanaged hosting easier, including our hosting API, a hardware health feature, and a security vulnerabilities scanner.

Developing this tool took some time, but it was very important to CorelloHosting. It’s part of our larger goal to provide instant provisioning.

“We are one step closer to a future of automated hosting tasks, including instant provisioning,” said Kareem Stephenson, Founder, and CEO of CorelloHosting. “This feature gives our staff a chance to handle higher-level tasks and our customers the ability to control their hosting experience.”

CorelloHosting Expands Global Network with 2nd Data Center in Los Angeles

CorelloHosting Expands Global Network with 2nd Data Center in Los Angeles

Dedicated hosting provider CorelloHosting expands its hosting reach with another data center in Los Angeles, California. It is the company’s ninth data center in the United States.

CorelloHositng’s decision to expand in Los Angeles was made to fill a need for dedicated servers on the U.S. West Coast. Los Angeles is a well-known hub for the hosting market, as it offers direct connectivity and low latency to many areas of the world. In addition to expanding hosting in the U.S., this location will provide reliable routes between the U.S. and countries in the Asia-Pacific area, including China and Australia.

“We are happy to announce that CorelloHosting is expanding to another data center that has always been in demand for our customers,” said Kareem Stephenson, Founder and CEO of CorelloNetworks. “We look forward to offering our premium network and respected service in more places than ever.”

NOT-SO-STANDARD HOSTING

CorelloHosting dedicated hosting customers and resellers at any location have access to the company’s unique “rapid deploy” servers, which are pre-configured bare metal servers that allow growth similar to that of a cloud environment without the limitations of the cloud. Rapid deploy servers are perfect for those who need a quick setup and all of the resources of a dedicated server.

Also available is industry-leading “DDoS protection for all” – 20 Gbps included for all dedicated hosting accounts, and upgraded to 100+ Gbps on demand. This places customer uptime numbers high above its competitors.

CorelloHosting has one of the most active and fastest growing dedicated server reseller programs in the hosting industry. It offers incredible ease of use through an extensive API and third-party billing system integration. All of these benefits allow resellers to take advantage of CorelloHosting’s new locations or products through their own brand the moment they are available.

The Tier III data center in Los Angeles provides high-tech physical security, redundant power sources, and a 100% uptime SLA. CorelloHosting promises low latency, premium carriers and an on-site support team of experienced technicians at all of its data centers. The Los Angeles data center follows Philadelphia, Chicago, Atlanta, Miami, and the New York City metro area, to continue more than 15 years of exceptionally dedicated hosting globally.

Hardware Monitoring to Reduce Server Downtime

Hardware Monitoring to Reduce Server Downtime

CorelloHosting introduces pro-active hardware monitoring that will prevent the loss of three things vital to a business: data, revenue, and reputation.

The hardware monitoring is available for all dedicated servers in CorelloHosting’s data centers. It will significantly reduce downtime caused by dedicated server hardware issues. The time between when a dedicated server begins to malfunction and when it’s detected is critical. CorelloHositng’s hardware monitor inspects the servers in its data centers for issues with the following: hard drives, SSDs, motherboards, network adapters, optimal system temperature and other abnormal system behavior.

It is a pro-active measure for CorelloHosting’s customers, which works by scanning through all IPMI logs and sensors to detect unusual hardware-related activity.

“We are happy to add another feature to our lineup,” said Donald Shaw, President of Datacenter Operations “This one will protect our vital infrastructure, and that of our dedicated hosting customers.”

Server hardware monitoring complements CorelloHosting’s other protective features, including our free DDoS protection and the network vulnerabilities scanner.

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.

Dedicated Server Security: 4 Steps for Protecting Your Data

Whether you already have a dedicated server or are thinking about utilizing one for your business or personal needs, security should be your top priority. Dedicated server providers make it easier than ever for you to keep your data and information safe by including features such as DDoS protection and other options. Still, you can take some additional steps to increase security for your dedicated server and protect your data.

Maintain Your Databases

Taking the time to make sure your databases are well maintained and updated as needed is important, regardless of what anybody may tell you. Specifically, you should make sure that your databases are protected against SQL injection. You may also want to delete any unneeded data and cut back on the access that others have to said database. This is especially important if you collect any sensitive information from customers on your site (such as payment information). This is also where certain database administration tools could be helpful.

Update Software Regularly

One of the biggest mistakes you can make when it comes to dedicated server security is in failing to keep your software updated. When you use outdated software, it likely doesn’t have the security updates, patches and other protections that you need to keep your information safe. When you receive an alert that a new version of software is available on your dedicated server, it’s in your best interest to go ahead and install it right away. If you put it off, there’s a chance that you’ll forget about it altogether, thus putting your security at risk. Using CorelloHosting’s security vulnerabilities scanner is one way to stay updated on any outstanding updates.

Keep Backups of Data

Nobody ever anticipates a security breach or attack causing them to lose important data, but it happens every single day to large and small businesses alike. Don’t take any chances in this regard — make sure that you set up regular data backups for your dedicated server. This way, important data can be saved as a copy in another location, and, in the event of an attack or security compromise, you will at least be able to retrieve that data rather than losing it altogether.

Establish a Chain of Command

Finally, now is also a good time to establish a chain of command within your business and have protocols in place when it comes to handling a data breach or other type of security risk. Specifically, you should know whom to contact, how to reset passwords, and what other steps need to be followed. You may also want to have somebody to prepare a statement for customers if any of their data is compromised.

By following these steps, you can keep your dedicated server as secure as possible. Of course, if you don’t have the time for this in your busy schedule, consider upgrading to a CorelloHosting managed hosting option so you have a team of professionals to handle these aspects for you. Contact our team today to get started.
