When your website has reached the point where you need a higher level of performance and security, virtual private servers (VPS) are often the ideal choice. The step from shared hosting to a VPS, however, can be a challenge. Administrators of websites will have a much greater level of control over the hosting environment on a VPS. This provides them with great opportunities for customization, but also opens up some level of risk related to security breaches, misconfigurations, and other problems.
Taking steps to ensure your VPS hosting environment is protected from all types of attacks is absolutely essential.
Good customer service is widely considered one of the most important aspects of any business. Being able to help your customers in a way that leaves them satisfied is critical not only for keeping existing clients, but attracting new ones as well. While companies of every size and type attempt to provide good customer service, not all of them are as successful as they would like. This is especially true in the web hosting industry because customers come in many different types and have a variety of different requirements, which means a variety of different ways that they will need customer support.
Web Hosting service is a blessing for any kind of business. Businesses of all different types need to choose the right hosting services in order to have their site up and running for customers to see. Small or start-up businesses will typically need basic hosting solutions. Mid-sized companies, on the other hand, will need higher-end web hosting services in order to meet their needs. While many very large companies opt to host their site internally, a growing number of them are harnessing the expertise of a web hosting company to meet this need.
When shopping around for web hosting, it can be easy to get confused since there are so many options. Understanding what the various types of hosting are and how they work will help you to make a decision regarding which one is the best option for your site or sites.
For people who are running relatively small websites, the two main options are shared hosting and cloud hosting. Both of these are excellent options and the one that is right for you will depend largely on your specific needs. Take a few minutes to read more about each of these hosting technologies so you can make an informed decision. Read More

InterServer has a long-standing partnership with CloudLinux. Over the years, we have tested and implemented a variety of their key product offerings. When Imunify360 was launched a few years ago, we were eager to put it to the test. One key factor that really made this tool attractive is that Imunify seamlessly integrates with InterServer’s existing InterShield Security System .
InterShield offers similar types of security features, but with an emphasis on scanning files that are being run by the webserver.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 positively impacted millions of disabled people’s lives, providing greater accessibility to public areas. The act also has enabled disabled persons to pursue opportunities in education and employment, which were once unobtainable. However, many do not realize that the ADA also extends to website accessibility to provide suitable online content accommodations. Section 508 (access-board.gov/ict.html) of the
Rehabilitation Act further addressed this issue and created standards and accessibility guidelines.
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (w3.org/WAI/standards-guidelines/wcag/), developed by a community global experts community, listed 14 guidelines, and checkpoints to make content accessible in compliance with Section 508 in 1999. Read More
The ability to develop video for the web is rapidly becoming a necessary skill for careers ranging from drama to marketing. Even well known directors have found it a useful venue for their skills.
