A good rule with web hosting is to always have a back-up and disaster recovery plan in place for a worst case scenario, if your data disappears. Many hosts will offer a backup service, and there are a number of options available for increased protection.
One good method is to setup a RAID array for your server. There are several different ways you can configure RAID, essentially it gives protection by spreading or copying your data over two or more redundant hard drives. Many people choose to augment this with an additional hard drive outside of the RAID array, and also do backups there. For yet another level of redundancy you could also do backups to a remote workstation.
Many larger and more popular websites also choose to setup a failover to another server in a different network operations center. This can be a bit tricky for complex websites, or if there are databases involved, the team at PingPipe has over a decade of experience assisting clients with all levels of data backup and disaster recovery, and would be pleased to help you set-up the most cost-effective solution that meets your needs.

Once you have installed the server-side module it is easy to setup access accounts and passwords for it, allowing you remote access to your server from any computer that has the viewer portion available. When you connect to your dedicated server using Radmin you will be able to remotely and control your server’s mouse and keyboard. Transferring files to your server is as easy as dragging and dropping. Another way some people use Radmin is to allow several people to view a server’s desktop. PingPipe has partnered with the manufacturer of Radmin and is now offering full licensed versions to all new and existing clients. at great pricing.

Everyone sees the value of email, and it is a fact that effective marketing can increase sales and help make any business successful. Email marketing can be an effective business tool, but somehow the balance seems to have tipped: it has become less about marketing and more about email. Ask the sales team at PingPipe or any other web host provider to tell you the last time that an Email Marketer has admitted to sending spam email; the fact is that when faced with a spam complaint most companies will not admit wrongdoing, and will say that they are legitimate Email Marketers that does not send spam email. Something has to be causing the increase in spam complaints though, All of that annoying spam email has to be coming from somewhere. I think that we all can agree that receiving spam email is an annoying waste of time.
There has to be a point where a commercial email stops being email marketing and starts being email spam. That point in time is blatantly obvious to those of us who receive unsolicited email and oblivious to the people sending those messages. Before you begin using email marketing, there are a few useful things to remember: 1) Commercial email should never be sent to people that do not ask to receive it. 2) Keep a record of the requests to be added to your marketing list (complete with IP addresses the requests were sent from. 3) Follow up requests to be added to your mailing list, and ask people to confirm that they indeed want to be added. (this is called a double opt-in) 4) If someone asks to be removed from your mailing list take them off it right away. 5) Quickly respond to any spam complaints.
As long as you keep the above points in mind, you will find that Email marketing is a great tool to increase sales, keep in touch with your client base, and inform them about your products and services.
They cost a bit more, but for many dedicated server users the extra cost of a solid state drive is worth it for a number of reasons. Just like the name implies, solid state drives have no mechanical parts. In addition to running quieter than a traditional hard drive, this feature gives them the added advantage of not having any moving parts that can fail. They also are quite a bit faster on startup and when seaking data. Solid State Drives (sometimes abbreviated to SSD) don’t require any special cooling and only use about a half to a third of a hard disk drive. Over the long term this power savings will more than make up for the initial added cost to upgrade from a SATA, SAS, or SCSI hard drive. PingPipe now offers solid state drives as an option on most of our single processor dedicated servers, visit PingPipe.com to order yours today, our knowledgeable support team is always always available to answer your questions or help you custom configure your new dedicated server.
There are many shared hosts that offer free hosting, and dedicated servers are often advertised at surprisingly low monthly costs. One thing remains constant with all web hosting companies: you get what you pay for, and offers that seem to good to be true usually are. Web hosting costs have come down a lot in recent years, but usually lower cost means lower value.
In a network operations center, even air isn’t free. Dedicated server power supplies get hot and need to be cooled. Air conditioning is a major expense for data centers, and that expense should be part of what makes up your monthly web hosting cost. Don’t limit your search when searching for a host. Cheap hosting companies are cheap for a reason, and usually that means cheap service.
In most cases it is better to pay a bit more for value, and choose a web host that has a 100% network uptime guarantee, premium bandwidth, and always available support services that respond to your questions in a timely manner.
